Xiaomi Poco C3 Review

Highlights

  1. It has an integrated IPS LCD panel with fantastic brightness settings.
  2. A standard triple camera placed on top of the square camera module, which offers 13 MP as the primary sniper.
  3. The device provides battery requirements with its 5000 mAh battery, which is also a key selling point of the Poco C3.
  4. Under the hood, the phone handles processing via the Helio G35 chipset with support for moderate gaming.
  5. The starting price of the Poco C3 is 7499 INR (approximately $ 100).

Design and Display

After the launch of the Mi 10T Pro, Xiaomi launched the budget smartphone POCO C3. The simple layout may not look surprising or cool from the outside, but it is still capable of rendering an elegant design, which enhances the appearance in a way other than something flashy.

On the rear panel, you will get a camera set. However, there is no sign of a fingerprint scanner on the back and it is undoubtedly not present on the side frame either, which means that the only security support is only the facial unlock, while you can also use a pin or pattern.

On the other hand, you will receive a 6.43-inches screen based on IPS LCD technology that renders resolution up to HD+ 720p with 400 nits brightness and has a Panda glass coating out of the box.

Memory and Internal

The Octa-core processing unit is designed to work in all situations with precision and provide maximum throughput. However, there are limitations to the SoC Helio G35, which sometimes decreases the efficiency of the game session.

The software suite runs alongside the Android 10 operating system and is compatible with the MIUI 12 interface skin, which provides various incredible adjustments and customization for better user experience.

Other than that, Poco packs the C3 phone in two different memory variants – the basic 3 GB RAM paired with 32 GB storage and the 4 GB RAM with 64 GB internal space. In addition, you can add even more space to help the dedicated MicroSD port.

Camera

On the rear panel, the configuration of a set of three cameras is introduced under the square plate, including the primary 13 MP snapper that is placed next to the combination of 2 MP depth and 2MP macro lens, next to the LED port.

A 5MP selfie camera with a waterdrop notch will arrive in front, and it looks like it hasn’t covered much space on the screen. With this setting, you will see the image distraction in the corner of the photos and offer a slightly less stable video experience with 1080p video recording.

Battery and Others

In addition, you can watch videos offline or stream content online, all due to the 5000 mAh battery, and can survive up to two days on a single charge via the 10W charger.

In addition, you will receive a set of accelerometer, proximity, USB On-The-Go that provides a better user experience to some extent in this budget smartphone.
