Reviews for the Xiaomi Poco C61

Poco C61 Review: Attractive Design At Affordable Price
Source: Cashify English
The Poco C61, with a large circular camera module, tries to bring an attractive design for the first time in the Rs.7,000 price segment. If you prefer style over substance, then the Poco C61 is definitely the phone for you. The Poco C61 offers a large display, long-lasting battery life and decent cameras. However, you will need to deal with the sluggish MediaTek Helio G36 chipset,720p resolution and slow 10W charging.

Poco C61 First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Poco has been delivering decent products for a while, mainly catering to diverse price categories. The X-series offers flagship-grade features, while the M-series delivers a punch in the mainstream category. However, it is the C-series that provides the real value-for-money proposition. The latest addition to this series is the Poco C61, which brings a refreshed design language along with a good combination of software and hardware, all at a starting price of Rs 6,999. But how does it fair against the competition? We have some time with the device, so here's our first look.
