So today we give you a review of the poco m3. Now the poco m3 is a device. That’S uh super affordable right now, under 200 bucks under 175 bucks really and it’s a speedy device. Now i’ve got the default icon pack on here, and i got this and it’s in this xiaomi form because you can customize this thing. All you want, and it is a great looking device too comes in several colors got a nice big 1080p display 6.53 inches. You got the 48 megapixel shooter on the back uh 6 000 milliamp hour battery has proven to be fantastic. You should be able to go at least um three to four days, depending on how you’re using the device and that that’s. Just what i you know in my experience, i get a lot of notifications, so i feel like. If i can go two to three days, uh minimum you should be able to go at least four to five days. You know considering your notifications, you might have more notifications than i have, and so you know it just depends. Every user is different when it comes to the battery life on the device. Some people will get amazing battery like shout out to grand s uh on his uh s21 ultra. He actually got uh five days and i thought that was extremely impressive, uh and a lot of times that’s how people use their device they’re, not on their devices as much as we are as the tech community uh.
We stay on our devices, the phone beeps and we run to it uh. In most cases, a lot of people do because they want to know hey. What was that? What was that? The ability to have things right in your pocket is really nice, so battery life. On this thing is extremely impressive: now i took the cameras for a ride. I just kind of went around the house and took some photos. This really gloomy outside a little bit of rain uh, and these these cameras have proven to be uh impressive. At the at least at the least, they are really strong. They take great photos. Video is definitely really good, and i think that if you’re a person who’s um don’t, you don’t want to invest in an actual camera. If you will a point shoot, this is a definitely an option for you. Xiaomi has always been known as far as i see it as having some of the best cameras on devices, especially these lower prices, 165 or so at the recording of this video. For that type of money, you should be able to grab some serious serious photos and get some great quality and feel like you got your money’s worth that’s the most important thing to me. So when it comes to shooting photos, they’re extremely impressive in my book um – and i just think that’s something that you’ll be the judge of how you feel like these um. These cameras are front and rear, whichever uh you’ll determine that, and i think you’ll be hard.
Pressed to say that these are bad cameras. Now, when it comes to the hardware uh, this has a side mounted fingerprint reader and it’s, actually really good. You don’t have to press it to get it to turn on. You just rest your finger on it and it comes on that gives you some sense of of how um tell my buddy. That gives you some sense of how nice this is now well it’s, not the fastest fingerprint reader. It is definitely there. You’Ve got nice hardware. This is a phone where i do have. I have not touched the case uh you get a case in the box, but that’s just if you want to save it from drop if you’re accident prone person, yeah it’s, not the best case it’s, not the best. Looking case, it’s not the best feeling case but it’s the case in the box that you get with the device and it’ll save your device from drops and things like that so um. Another thing you might notice hardware wise is that this actually has a headphone jack, and then it has a speaker there and a speaker here now: that’s that’s a different setup than what you know we’ve seen in a long time. Huawei does things like that. Putting the speaker holes literally on each side and other companies do as well, but you know to see xiaomi doing this on one of their later devices that are being released. I think it’s impressive and the sound quality that comes from this thing is absolutely great.
No complaints there uh having an sd card slot, is a huge plus uh for devices, because people love an sd card slot for some reason. They i personally don’t need an sd card slot. I don’t have to have an sd card slot uh and i think some people require that and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Some people require an sd card slot. I totally understand it’s just what it is so um, oh that’s, pretty nice let’s try this one. So some people will complain if a device doesn’t have an sd card slot which takes me over to memory. As for leaving the discussion about the hardware um, you know having a minimum of 128 gigs of storage should be where we stay. You know i don’t think it’s right that companies uh don’t put 128 gigs of storage in devices now just based on pricing uh. I just feel like if you’re gon na give a person a device, if you’re gon na sell a device, sell it with a minimum of 128. it’s just fair, because some people might not have the money to buy an sd card, even though sd cards. Now you can get 128 gig card for, like 15 bucks, maybe a good one uh, but some people just might not have it. They just might not have it and that’s okay. I understand that so giving them 128 gigs to start where, with until they can actually get an sd card, it’s totally what these companies should be doing, something as simple as putting a charger in the box is in question now, which is kind of sad it’s kind Of sad now um, this phone with performance uh is it’s running the snapdragon 662.
Now the 600 series, if you don’t, know my my best uh 600 series processor experience was with the 625. Remember that processor we’re a long ways from the 625 a long ways and this 662 hasn’t. Let me down um it’s it just hasn’t. Let me down it’s it’s, a good performing processor uh. It does well with any of the tasks that i’ve set for to give it, and i just haven’t had any complaints whatsoever when moving in and out of applications, it’s, fine, um, nothing, no complaints, i haven’t had any hiccups or anything with it. Nothing. This just has been a performing uh phone with this processor. Now it does have four gigs or six gigs of ram option, but this is a four gig 128 gig model. So i think what? Overall, you should be impressed with the price, the cameras, the battery life, the screen, the performance. You know what else do you really need um yeah? So if i had to think of a con, i would say the only con is with this. Device is you’re going to get 4g lte you’re not going to get 5g, but the 4g lte is doable it’s totally fine. I don’t think you’ll have a problem with uh the speeds and streaming, and things like that. I just don’t think you’ll have a problem with it, so this is the poco m3 uh and it’s a device that’s out there on the market. That’S unlocked works with all carriers, except for cdma, no sprint, no verizon, no things like that.
Uh, just gsm providers pop your sim card in there and you’re ready to go uh. Add you a sd card and you’re you’re good for quite some time to come. Uh some people um have asked about, like you know the skin and things like that. Well, i don’t technically have a skin before i get out of here. I just ran an icon pack, and i think this will be the best way for you to kind of take advantage of customizations. If you don’t want to use their themes now, they do have themes, they have a themed store and i just think it’s best for me to just skin the icon. Pack. Themes are cool and everything, but i just prefer to do an icon pack and i am golden. If you did want to go into the theme store. Uh you just head over to themes and it’ll. Take you in there and you’ll be good to go. You can download as many free things as you can possibly think of they’re. All there it’s, your man j hope you guys enjoyed the poco m3. I like it it’s a go, it’s totally worth the money and the battery life whoa.
