POCO C3 Review – You can ditch Redmi for this
Source: Cashify English
At the end of the day, it all boils down to the user’s preference. Xiaomi isn’t targeting users with mid-range or flagship phones but rather, Poco C3 is targeted towards those with a tight budget or to someone who is either new to smartphones or upgrading from a feature phone. Paying Rs 7,999/- for a phone which shares most of its specifications with Redmi 9A isn’t fair since the latter is available for almost Rs 1,000/- less. However, if you still want to try it without getting annoyed by ads, Poco C3 is the right choice. It is competing against the likes of Redmi 9, Realme Narzo 20A, and Realme C12 to name a few options.

60% Poco C3 Review: Good battery yes, but is that enough?
Source: The Indian Express English
If you are looking for a base Android phone to get you through the day and are not planning on doing too much heavy duty gaming, then you can think of getting the Poco C3. However, if you plan on doing something more than that, then getting a different smartphone like the Redmi 9 Prime feels like a much better option.

The base variant of the Poco C3 is a decent pick at Rs. 7,499 if all you want is a basic Android smartphone with strong battery life. The display is a bit dull, performance isn't great, and the cameras are just about serviceable. The 4GB version doesn't offer very good value, since at Rs. 8,999, you can get better phones such as the Realme Narzo 20A and Moto E7 Plus.

The ongoing pandemic makes entry-level smartphones essential to brands, as most people just need a device that can get them on a video call for work, a zoom call for school, or simply staying connected with family.

Poco C3 is a simple phone with no major highlight. It is a pocket-friendly phone priced at Rs 7,499 onwards. Having said that, the phone could be a good option for those looking for a budget phone with a decent battery and camera features. The fact that the display has a Blue light filter and is TUV Rheinland certified for eye protection, it can be a good choice for the students taking online classes.

Xiaomi Poco C31 Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The overall value of the Xiaomi Poco C31 smartphone is quite extraordinary as you won’t get some of the fabulous features even on the mid-range device. Whether you’re looking for rugged performance or huge battery life, the phone has it all for you. Like its Poco C3 predecessor, this device is unique at the entry-level as it has several unique features. However, that doesn’t mean the phone has issues or glitches. You still won’t have a decent camera experience, nor is the screen as excellent. But that’s all negligible if you’re considering a basic phone. We highly recommend the Xiaomi Poco C31 for its excellent value. But if you are looking for an alternative option, you can check Infinix Hot 11 smartphone.

74.4% Xiaomi Poco C40 smartphone review – Slow phone with long battery life | Notebookcheck
Xiaomi's sub-brand Poco is once again trying to penetrate the entry-level market with a phone that features a huge battery and an exotic processor. The Poco C40 even looks great to boot. So does it get our wholehearted recommendation? Well...

The Poco C40 has a decent screen, excellent battery life and is a very affordable smartphone. Sadly, the performance is underwhelming and the cameras really don’t impress. Sure, you can save yourself some money by buying this phone, but I feel the compromises may make it seem like you still overpaid.
