Poco now presents its budget phone M3

Poco M3 will be a really cheap phone but which still impresses with its screen, its battery but maybe not its camera this time.

Poco has not exactly developed any expensive phones before but with M3 it really shows that you can make even cheaper phones really well when it comes to hardware and design.

I’m really impressed with how Poco managed to push in a 6,000 mAh battery and that it supports fast charging of 18W. According to Poco, the battery should last for five days, but this obviously depends entirely on how you use the phone, but at least one day you can probably do without a doubt. Unfortunately, the phone will be without 5G, but here you have to settle for 4G, but maybe just as good considering the low price. If you think that headphone jacks are a must, it is included on the M3.

Poco M3

We find three sensors on the back of the phone, which I see a bit as unnecessary, had well enough with the main sensor of 48 MP and f / 1.79.

Poco M3 will be released in two different versions, one with 4GB frame and 64GB storage for 149 euros or if you need 128GB storage instead, it costs 169 euros. The advantage, however, is that you can expand the storage with memory cards.
