A Poco M3 Pro 5G review

A-Poco M3-Pro-5G-review

This time we have a device – θήκες κινητών – that reminds us of something, the Poco M3 Pro 5G. The review you will read below is actually the same as that of the Redmi Note 10 5G, with some slight differences. The device comes in a package that includes the phone, a 22.5Watt fast charger, a Type-C USB cable, some Poco stickers and a transparent, soft protective case. The device itself is made of plastic with the front screen (Gorilla Glass 3) covered with a protection gel.

General specifications

In terms of dimensions, it is not very large, however it is a bit thick and not very light at 190 grams, using a screen at 6.5 ” Full HD + resolution (2400×1080) which is IPS LCD and runs at 90Hz, something that many will find extremely useful. For IPS screen it has good colors, however the brightness is limited while the pre-installed protection gel does not help, as it creates several reflections.

Even if one removes it, the panel does not seem to be one of the best, as it can have good viewing angles, however even small movements from the direct gaze make the screen look less bright. At least in terms of color, however, it goes well, with the “Normal” color setting being the preferred, with MIUI 12 (Android 11) offering several options for changes in how the screen looks in color. There is also the possibility of choosing the refresh rate between 60Hz or 90Hz, with the latter being probably the one that most people will use, as it automatically adjusts the refresh rate between 60 / 90Hz.

For example, in applications such as Gmail, Chrome and Android itself is at 90Hz while in the camera application or Netflix it is at 60Hz. As for Netflix itself, on the device we had in our hands we had no problem seeing content in Full HD resolution without HDR (not even supported on YouTube), as the phone is Widevine L1 certified. The selfie camera is positioned inside the screen, at the top and center, leaving the entire screen for video viewing. Right at the top of the screen, there is the handset which is just as visible.

On the right side of the device, in a recess, is the power button which also plays the role of the fingerprint sensor, which works quickly and accurately. The volume controls are located just above while the place for placement of sim cards is on the left side. The phone accepts two SIM cards (can be both 5G) while it can also accept micro SD cards. At the bottom we have the decent volume speaker which in terms of quality does not stand out but does its job well while next to it is the Type-C USB port. At the top is a headphone jack, thanks to which you can also use the built-in radio, as long as you connect headphones. Next to it is our well-known IrBlaster for remote control of devices such as air conditioning, televisions, etc.

Performance

When it comes to using the Redmi Note 10 5G, this comes with the new MIUI 12 over Android 11! Those who have used Xiaomi devices in recent years will have no problem running the device, but the rest will find a nice user interface, app drawer several applications. The SoC that it integrates is an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700. It is a SoC that is built at 7nm and offers good performance, ensuring that the phone runs comfortably in various applications. In fact, compared to the Realme 8 5G that we recently introduced and is based on the same SoC, here MIUI seemed to run better, without delays when switching applications.

Camera

Going to the cameras now, the camera system is probably what we call basic. Central sensor is one at 48MP behind f / 1.8 aperture lens. Supports auto focus but has no visual stabilization. It gives good results during the day, with nice colors and enough detail with the dynamic range not being something special even when HDR is activated. As far as the performance of the sensor at night is concerned, no one expects miracles, although with Night Mode things are getting a lot better.

Going now to the other two lenses, their usefulness is rather small, as we have a macro at 2MP with fixed focus and another 2MP that is used as a depth sensor and helps the main lens to take portrait shots with really good bokeh. The macro lens again, if there is enough light, can give really good close-up shots, even if it is only 2MP resolution. The phone can capture video at 1080p / 30fps only with the basic sensor  so the result is good enough for the price range.

One can also activate electronic stabilization, with the video subject to crop, which greatly reduces the shakes in the video, but drops the quality. As for the selfie, it is based on an 8MP sensor with fixed focus, which does it well.
