Hello guys after a long time, I’m actually happy to unbox and look at a budget mid range Android smart phone, because lately from last year onwards, in this price range of about 10, to about 14,000. We had a lot of smartphones, but nothing was that exciting either the specs were not that good or they had other compromises. But the spoke is very different. And I’m actually unboxing this after the event. So we know the pricing, it actually is available in two variants. This is storage is different. One comes with six gigabytes of RAM and 64 GB of storage. That’s what’s 11,000 other as 60 GB of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage, that’s 4000 but this one also has stereo speakers. And this is something that we haven’t seen in this price range.
In fact, even other aspects like the RAM is lpddr four and even the storage CFS 2.1 and 2.2. So again, pretty excited about this one after a long, long time, I think so we are getting a good smartphone at a very good price, which is a rarity these days and according to poco Who’s that Arnold Sharma has? I was watching launch event he says that this one does not have ads. So euro does the poker entry back if you look at it, it gives us the big basic idea. It has a big battery 6000 milliamp hour and a 48 megapixel rear facing camera. It’s having the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 and we’re having a full HD plus IPS LCD screen not that 720 p stuff. So let’s open it up. And this we get here I think so we’ll get some sim ejector tool.
We don’t get a case. So finally and some people work. So we are getting something to box unbox the standard flagships we don’t get anything so you’re getting this. So you’re getting the phone itself obviously, they sent us this blue color one. This package is very different guys. This is plastic, no doubt it’s polycarbonate but gives that very good feel. It’s and I don’t know about this you guys let me know what do you feel about this big poco logo over here. If it would have been this black, it would have looked more classier. But again, I won’t complain. I will come back to the phone later and just keep the stand to the side.
And what else do we get? These days in boxes. We are not getting anything. You get a USB type C cable that’s nice USB Type A to type C and this is supposed to be a 18 watt fast charger. I’m glad they are not skimping on this thing, like some other big companies are doing these days. First impressions guys first impressions. They say this is having a 6000 milliamp hour battery, it should actually feel a lot more heavier than it is. The weight balance is excellent. It just does not feel heavy. Many of the phones that have around that 6000 milliamp feel heavy, they have done a great job in terms of weight management with balance means very balanced on the top.
Oh, I like that it does having an IR blaster even at this price point. We have What do you say headphone 3.5 mm headphone jack. This is the speaker Sorry, guys. But as it has the dual speaker stereo speaker here is the IR blaster. Like the very quality Yes, it’s polycarbonate kind of but it does not feel cheap guys. So here we have this is the volume rocker. And this is the fingerprint scanner compound on a button. I like it. This is actually pretty convenient, I would say and what will be the speaker type keyboard this be the main microphone. And this will be your Sim. Fortunately, yes, it’s a triple slot. There had sense. So do what do you say nano sims and I believe this also supports what do you call that white or white fight and even dual band Wi Fi that is 2.4 as well as five gigahertz so that’s actually nice. I’m liking what I’m seeing here eyes. That main camera is 48 then again the two megapixel front are supposed to be eight. Let’s just power this on guys.
I hope it has a charge.
Yes. And guys by the time it actually boots up and I set it up yet as a configuration overview. This focal entry is having a 6.53 inch full HD plus IPS LCD screen. It is powered by Gorilla Glass three. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 662 SOC which has the Adreno 610 GPU combined six gigabytes of RAM and 64 or 128 gigabytes of storage. It has a triple rear facing camera main cameras 48 megapixel then we have two megapixel macroom two megapixel depth facing cameras, eight megapixel it also has stereo speakers and a 6000 milliamp hour battery. Now I’m almost done setting up the phone guys but I have noticed that you’re getting all this souser experience, sudden diagnostic personalized ads
turn off, and even glance for me. So these things were there from disabling at location. I’m just leaving because some apps might require it. But hopefully we don’t see ads. Let’s see what happens. I’m going to use this. So guys have set up the device. So let’s have a closer look at the same now. And guys, I had updated this device, it got one software update. So I had applied that. And this is still me why 12. But we have that poco launcher on this one. But if you notice, there’s quite a bit of bloatware that is pre installed, I didn’t install anything, as you can see some junk games, etc. Get abs, all those things are still there. So quite a few apps. Let’s see if we can uninstall this Facebook app. So yeah, you can uninstalled. So luckily, you can install a lot of junk, not all, but as you can see the spiral funnel, whatever you can install some of the junk that is installed. And I feel that is important because what we have is the base rate in 64 gigabytes. And let me actually show you the storage. If I go over here, how much do we get? And I forgot about the phone.
As you can see, it’s running under me, why would you not to read, which is still Android 10. Guys, it’s not Android 11. And roughly about 18 gigabytes was sort of used. So out of that 64 gigabytes, 18 gigabytes of sort of use. But again, it has the dedicated microSD card slot. But again, if you’re sort of a heavy user, install a lot of apps and games, then I feel that 128 gigabyte variant would be a better option. It’s available just for about 1000 rupees board, which is a fair pricing, I would say. And if I go over here, if you can see all the specs, all the names come with that six gigabytes of RAM. And this is that Snapdragon 662 Soc. While setting up the phone. Initially, I saw some minor jitters. But again, it might be because it was updating in the background. But it should handle the phone fine. For the most part, I would say and this is typical me UI guys. And good thing is Wi Fi. It’s connecting on both the 2.4 and five gigahertz band. That’s what I like. And this is typical. Meanwhile, as I’ve told you guys, and we also have the Mi remote app, because it has that IR blaster as you can see that mirror motor. But again, a lot of neat apps are also pre installed. So you have to agree to the terms and conditions. So be careful about it. Because while I was just setting up the phone, I didn’t invoke anything. I got this module, something just popped up like that. So be careful about it. What permissions Do you give to apps and stuff? Let’s see, it’s too early to judge if I will see ads or not on this poco claims that this will not get ads. But we have to see that we have this get apps still install, I hit that up. because it keeps prompting us for a lot of third party apps. So this is there. Let’s look at the fingerprint scanner, it’s over a year. And if you press it, it’s even the bar bar. So if you press it, it unlocks.
And fairly fast. It’s not the fastest, I would say but fairly fast. And I will simply not complain constrain the pricing of the smartphone as you can see, I’m not even seeing and it’s unlocking such as pretty last but not the fastest, I would say. Now let’s also look at the camera on this one. I’m not expecting that much. But again, the good thing is that the primary camera is a 48 megapixel then we have the two two megapixel for depth and macro. And front facing is just eight megapixel. So let me do one thing. Let me actually take some sample shots with this one.
Okay. So again, show me app and show you this fairly fast. It’s not the fastest quarter of a second delay, but I like the screen quality on this one, though, it’s a sort of a budget oriented phone, I’m liking the screen quality what they have done, it’s a full HD plus, not that typical HD plus so and the viewing angles are fine on this one. So we even have the portrait mode. And yes, in real time we can see that and this is the front facing camera we have the beauty mode and all those things as you can see beautify filters and all those things.
just disable it. So let me do one thing let me actually take some sample shots around my office. These are shots with the rear facing camera and artificial lighting and I would say does okay job but again, the contrast levels are not that good. So you got to be careful while taking snaps and indoor lighting conditions. As you can see the contrast is not that good. This is the portrait mode. But when the lighting is good, you can get some decent shots.
But this is another part of the office again, as you can see, the shot simply did not come that great. In fact, the pitches are very softer. I was expecting a lot better going into the front facing camera. The color accuracy is not that great and it’s a pretty average camera.
So guys, that’s it for now for the unboxing and first look at this poco m three so what do you guys think about this poco m 3 do let me know in the comment section certainly a pretty good smartphone for the price point of about 10 or 11,000 I would say but what do you guys think about the same do let me know in the comment section below.
