This is the 8 gigabyte model, with 256 gigabytes of storage, so for the poco f3 it’s, the highest model that you can get before. We take a look at the phone let’s, take a look at what comes inside of this box and right off the top in this little uh box. Here, we’re gon na get a case, a little plastic bendy case right there, some terms and conditions, some poco stickers and a sim card ejector tool. So you can get your sim card out and then inside here, you’re gon na get your charger and your usb c cord and the poco f3 is a plastic phone which to me, is not a big deal at all i’m, not concerned with what the back is Made of is it nicer and does it feel more quality when it’s, metal or glass on the back yeah? It is but ultimately doesn’t really matter. Most people put a case on like myself, so not a huge deal. I think the camera design is actually pretty. Neat. Looks very stylish, you don’t get a headphone jack at all. You do get stereo speakers, so you can see some speakers there and down there and then you get your usb c charging sim card on the left hand, side on the right hand, side you get your volume up and down and you get your power button and That is pretty much it. Nothing. On the left hand, side i’ll put the specs on the screen for this one.
You can pause it if you want, but ultimately you’re getting a 6.67 inch, 1080p plus display 48 megapixel main camera 8 gigabytes of ram. If you get the top model, 45 20 milliamp battery snapdragon 870, 8 gigabytes of ram in this model and uh 1300 nits of brightness for the display with 120 hertz amoled, so performance on this phone is very good. I thought you know: it’s really really snappy the 120 hertz display works really well. With this i mean you could see a little bit of stutter in there if you, especially if you’re, comparing this to a top model kind of snapdragon 88 yeah, it doesn’t feel as smooth as that, but it overall, i think, for most people, it’s gon na work. Very very well open up some social media apps, like i always do here, if you’re just looking to scroll through instagram and click on people’s instagram there’s crystal lara, another youtuber zoom in on that purple phone looks great, looks fantastic, open up. Facebook here and scrolling is very, very smooth, twitter, again same kind of stuff here: let’s click on somebody’s stuff. Here. How about max max is a nice guy beautiful photo of his that looks like a z fold too, if i’m not mistaken. So, overall, you know just performance and that kind of stuff works. Great we’ll play a game here i was playing. I never played this game before, but we’ll put the block game in here, real, quick and turn the volume down just for any copyright issues go into classic mode and again i’ve never really played this.
So if i am bad, i can’t do that. Oh, i guess right there, maybe and then right here: Music, oh okay, back to the game whoa, but you can see like regular games like this are very smooth. So whatever you’re trying to do, you know we can see it just runs really really well within the operating system and opening up apps i’ll go to a website. Real quick we’ll see how fast that loads go to the yahoo website. Loads very, very quickly. Go to espn there you go again very quick. Go to ebay! Oops go back in here, let’s load up amazon, this loads up websites very very fast! There you go so no problems with performance just a day to day basis, it’s going to be very, very spectacular. Software experience let’s check that out so on the home screens itself, you swipe over you’re, going to get your google feed, which is great one of the favorite things about this. I, like seeing google feed on the left hand side when you swipe up. You get your oops when you swipe up you get your apps and they’re categorized. If you want them up here by different categories, you can even click this, and you can choose, looks like uh different backgrounds. You can do icon pack, you can do customized layout. You can change your app drawer in here. Hide your notification notification, badges! You can change! Those, if you want put a number or circle circle, hide your app icons going back to the home screen.
You come in here and you have wallpapers a bunch of wallpapers and the cool thing about this phone uh with these poco phones. Is that you get the you get like a dedicated store for free and paid wallpapers and themes so that you can customize this phone as much as you want to the point where it’ll change the sounds: it’ll change, your wallpaper icons, fonts, all with the click of A button and there’s a lot of free ones in here, there’s paid ones as well. This is a free one. The first one i just showed you was a was a paid one, but ultimately you know not bad it’s kind of cool to easily be able to customize your phone very very easily. You also can add widgets, obviously like you can with any android phone settings. So you can change the transition effects. If you want, you can set your default screen again. Just basic kind of android stuff fill empty cells so that when you have your apps they’re, all kind of line up all together rather than having empty spaces, you can lock the home screen layout, hide icons and go to more, and we just were in here before, But yeah very you know customizable software in that regard, here’s your quick toggles up here, very common android type ones. You have a scanner if you want to scan a document in you just tap that and you can scan a document.
It’Ll turn it into like a pdf or something you also have all your normal ones like brightness, bluetooth, flashlight. If you want screenshot button dedicated screenshot, you press that and i’ll take a screenshot of whatever screen it’s on. I like that, you have your screen recorder. If you press that it’ll, let you know it’s at the bottom here, it’ll start screen, recording whatever you’re doing when you’re done to stop it and there you go. You can send that video off to somebody of your screen cast me share hotspot. So definitely a lot of settings in there go into settings itself. You can check your about the phone and you can come in here and you can check your as you can see. I have i’m using 25 gigs of 256 gigabytes of storage and then also within here you’re, going to see all your specs. You can tap on that and you can check all the specs. You have eight gigs of ram octa core 3.2 gigahertz processor, it’s running android 11., and i, like the i like, when, when companies do this, they show like the actual specs of your phone, really easy. You can factory reset back up and restore this. Is your system app updater? So if you want to update your system apps in here from poco, you just come in here and do that you got your wi fi, bluetooth, connection series. Oh, so you get do always on display and lock screen and there’s customizations.
For that i have it on right now you can turn it on and off. You can do a signature right now. Mine would say greggs tv let’s just see if it turns on real quick. There you go. Mine shows greggles tv. Where am i there? We go oops um and you have a bunch of analog clocks if you want to change it to that or a kaleidoscope with a time or a digital clock, or so you can select different backgrounds. So very when i like, when phones are customizable but they’re easy to customize now you can raise your phone. When you raise your phone, you can turn it on to wake it up. You can double tap to turn on the screen. I love all those things launching the camera by it says: double press the volume down button to open the camera. I like, when it’s the power button instead, but still be able to open the camera very very quickly display has a dark mode and light mode. You can schedule your dark modes, you get your brightness levels, you get your reading modes, color scheme, you can change it. I currently have it set to saturated, because i, like those saturated colors, but you can set it to i think, but it’s set to auto by by default. You can also go into advanced settings and do it there refresh rate you can run it at 60 hertz. If you want better battery life, but not as smooth as an experience or 120, if you want the ultimate experience of smoothness with your phone, what else we got in here? We have the like.
I showed you earlier home, screen wallpaper and themes. You can go in there and customize your phone battery and performance. You got your me account. Your google stuff and special features will go in special features, real quick. You can turn on a game turbo mode. If you want to get like the ultimate performance, when you’re in a game, you get your video toolbox, special effects and features for video play pack and turn that, on and off you got floating windows, so press and hold and then drop down a notification to open It in a floating window, so if you get a notification you can press and hold it and drag it down and it’ll open up into a floating window and then second space uh set a designated screen lock for seconds space, separate and secure your data. So you can kind of have a second screen which is with a different, lock screen if you want to have different data or hide it from your girlfriend or your boyfriend or your kids. If you have some adult themed stuff on there, so yeah software experience is is quite nice. This is the recent apps button. You can go into cleaner and security, clean and deep, clean and manage apps. You can run multiple apps at once by doing split screen. Let’S. Do that chrome, so you got two windows right there. You should be able to do it this way as well, unless my auto lock is off, is my auto lock on make sure auto lock is on, whereas why isn’t it flipping and lock orientation yeah? So it was so there you go, should go this way.
Now there you go, so you can do it that orientation as well, but yeah running multiple apps is no problem at all. With this phone uh fingerprint sensor, you saw, i had a little bit issue, unlocking it a second ago. Sometimes it works really well, i don’t know i added it and it’s working great now i guess it’s just sometimes the way you hit it. So i would say it’s definitely fast, just sometimes i don’t know i have an issue with it: i’m, not sure why, but otherwise it’s working perfectly fine right now, let’s check out the speakers so i’m going to open up a youtube, app gregol’s tv in here. What is going on guys welcome to greggles tv daily let’s get into the tech news. First story of the day is an update that came to good luck, two updates within there and they’re, both within the home up module. Now, if you want to download good luck, all you got to do is open up your galaxy store, find the galaxy store on your phone search for good luck and install it. If you don’t already so the speakers i wouldn’t say, are very full sound and they sound a little hollow, especially for stereo speakers. They are definitely not the best speakers. They sound better than a mono speaker a lot of the time, but they just don’t have a ton of bass i feel like, but the screen you can see i’m playing this video on 4k 60 right now, and just to show you that i am there, you Go 2160 by 460.
, so it shows that i’m playing it and it’s handling it absolutely fine, and that shows off performance and quality of the display. Obviously you get the cutout for the camera right there. So there you guys go but yeah. I think the screen is. Is a pretty screen? Let me just go right now. I have it on um it’s, probably in about 65 brightness, and i can see it pretty good when we drop it down to 50, not that bad. I would like it to be a little bit brighter, but ultimately i think if you keep in that 65 to you know 70 range. I think you’ll be pretty happy with the brightness of this display. Obviously, this phone has some cameras here so i’m going to show you off some sample photos and videos that i took with the back camera and back cameras and with the front camera. So you get an idea of uh. How that all looks? Hey, hey, hey! What is up, this is the front camera of the poco f3, and it only goes in up to 1080p 30. Let me do a little walk around test. I’M gon na walk backwards, make sure i don’t trip over anything, say hello to miss shokalini, hi, shoko, hi, joko and um yeah it’s too bad. A lot of these phones. Don’T have 4k in the front. I would love it. I love 4k in the front. That sounds dirty but it’s, not it’s, honest it’s.
True here we go with the back. This is in 4k, giving you a better idea if you see any difference versus 1080p on the front 4k on the back. This is the main camera walking around a little bit. How did the microphone sound? How does this look i’ll walk into a dark environment a little bit? Probably won’t really be able to see me if i walk too far that way, but this is the front camera like i said here, is the ultra wide i’m gon na pan around my office a little bit, so you can see pretty lights a little bit of The guitar, how does that all look beautiful back to me? How does let me know in the comments down below Music? Also, if you’re curious, which apps come pre installed on the phone, actually has quite a few pre installed apps. This is just the games holder. I didn’t install any of these games and these all come like pre installed or they show up on here. You can uninstall them if you want so, for instance, if i don’t want pub g, i can just press and hold it go to app info and uninstall. The game but yeah a lot of a lot of apps kind of come in pre installed in this, that i wouldn’t want. Aliexpress comes pre installed netflix these other it’s, another game. They get their music app and they get the me you’re gon na get me apps and also google apps as well on on top of that, but other than that you know there’s like not a ton ton of apps, but a bunch of apps that i don’t.
I don’t really need or care for so for around 400 ish bucks, the poco f3, especially this eight gigabyte version. I can’t talk about six gigabyte because i didn’t have it, but this eight gigabyte version with a 256 gigs of storage runs really well. The display is really pretty, i think the camera you know takes decent photos and decent videos well enough to pass and be a primary phone for a lot of people. I like the fact that it has good customizations and easy customizations for the software itself. You know the quick toggles are are what you would expect you’re, not getting anything more or anything less really within there it’s great, i think in terms of like what you get it’s perfectly fine for what you’re looking for and how it runs and everything it’s. A very serviceable good, solid phone. So if you want to pick this up, i’ll link it down below thanks for watching.
