Reviews for the Xiaomi Poco F3

85.9% Xiaomi Poco F3 review: Power smartphone for little money | Notebookcheck
With the Poco F3, Xiaomi once again has a powerful smartphone in its portfolio that features a fast Snapdragon SoC, a bright AMOLED display, a powerful battery, 5G, and a triple-camera setup. Nevertheless, the starting price of 350 Euros (~$426) is very low.
100% Xiaomi Poco F3 review: A £329 bargain
Source: Expert Reviews English
As you’ve probably gathered by now, the Poco F3 is an easy recommendation if you (justifiably) don’t want to spend £700 on the latest and greatest flagships. For £329, the Poco F3 packs a hell of a performance punch, undermining not only phones of the same price, but more expensive handsets such as the OnePlus Nord and Moto G100, too.

POCO F3 Review – The Midrange Killer!
Source: Manila Shaker English
In its entirety, POCO F3 is looking more like a mid-range killer. That flagship killer moniker, I think, is reserved for the Redmi K40 Pro with 64MP or the K40 Pro+ with 108MP. Unfortunately, those phones have yet to land in the Philippines. But with POCO F3, you don’t have to wait for the other two as the Snapdragon 870 is more than enough to get the job done, whether it’s gaming. Sure, you get a slightly worse camera setup, but if you set your expectations right, the F3 can deliver a great experience without breaking the bank. It’s basically a phone that can last at least two years, solely for the chipset.

With class-leading performance, an outstandingly bright and fluid display, and a tidy design, the Poco F3 might just have you renouncing flagships for the foreseeable future. Only a mediocre camera and the usual MIUI quibbles threaten to sour an outstanding deal.

POCO F3 Review: The BEST Bang for Buck?

The POCO F3 is the latest example of that, with the Snapdragon 870 serving as the heart of this powerful yet accessible device. JV shares how the POCO F3 might be one of the best bang for buck smartphones, achieved by prioritizing the right bits.

80% Poco F3 Review — Attractive Hardware For A Value Price
Source: Pokde English
At the end of the day, the POCO F3 seems and feel like a solid device, especially if you’re upgrading from older smartphones. For the price, it’s a decent offering considering that you will get a high-end chipset, AMOLED display with 144Hz, 33W fast charging to name a few. It is far from being a perfect device however but starting from the price of RM1,399, it is an ideal smartphone for those who want the performance without the need to splurge much of your money. For that, I award the POCO F3 with our Silver Pokdeward.

Review – POCO F3
Source: Manila Shaker English
So, the POCO F3. At the starting price of RM1,399 – it’s still a clear step-up from the POCO X3 Pro in a few aspects – particularly the screen, the design, and also the performance. Yet it still comes with a few issues like the “dimming” issue which also appears while shooting photos outdoors.

The Poco F3 is an excellent phone by most standards, which makes it even better considering its modest price tag. The screen is a gem, offering specs rarely seen even at double the price, and the processor is not only powerful enough to tackle almost any task, but it also packs 5G connectivity, making it that bit more future-proof.

We appreciate that the maker has taken the extra step and has provided some value-adding features like stereo speakers, fast charging on the large battery, and even a premium-looking design. The Poco F3 isn't perfect, of course. Only the main camera offers good results, and there is no 3.5mm jack, or a microSD slot, or an official IP rating either.

70% Poco F3 review: Killer hardware brought down by sub-par software
Source: Android Authority English
The Poco F3 offers an unbelievable hardware package for the low price you'll pay for it. However, all the quality hardware in the world doesn't mean anything if the software doesn't match it, and that is what brings the Poco F3 down a notch. Ultimately, this phone is for people who prize processing power and display quality over everything else.

POCO F3 Review FULL Review. BEST VALUE Flagship Of 2021!

The POCO F3 has flagship-level haptics and screen for a whole lot less
Source: XDA Developers English
Xiaomi has arguably the best bang-for-buck smartphone brand in the world over the past couple of years, and the POCO F3 is yet another release that punches way above its price class. At a price of €349 ($416) for the base 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM model €399 ($475) for the 8GB + 256GB variant. Early bird pricing further slashes off €50 of both figures. These are really, really good prices that further makes mid-rangers from Samsung look like a tough sell for people outside of North America.

The POCO X3 Pro reminds me of a 2019 flagship, and that’s not a bad thing
Source: XDA Developers English
The POCO X3 Pro is a step up above the POCO X3 NFC that launched in the latter half of 2020, but it’s still more or less the same device with some slightly changed internals. Both devices look the same, and nobody could really blame you for mixing the two up. That doesn’t mean that it’s not worth picking up, but the devices are so similar that holding them side by side, it would be hard to tell them apart. It’s fast, it’s smooth, and the Snapdragon 860 can keep up with pretty much everything that you throw at it in a day-to-day sense. It’s not the best chipset on the market and nor is it close to it, but it’s an interesting chip from Qualcomm that helps to fill the gap between mid-range and flagship.

Đánh giá nhanh Poco F3: Màn hình đẹp, cấu hình mạnh, loa to, giá dưới 10 triệu đồng
Source: Tech Times English
Poco F3 chắc chắn sẽ là một “cơn sốt” tương tự thế hệ tiền nhiệm F1 của mình. Tuy nhiên, chiếc máy này không phải bị đánh đổi quá nhiều để có được cấu hình chuẩn flagship. Chúng ta vẫn có một màn hình OLED chất lượng cao, cặp loa kép “tốt hơn mong đợi” và một thiết kế đủ đẹp để tự tin “khoe” với bạn bè, người thân.
Positive: Beautiful display; powerful hardware; great speakers; good price.

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

SD 870: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in mid 2020 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC (improved N7P). Integrates one Prime Core based on a ARM Cortex-A77 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A77 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Xiaomi:

Since 2015 there are many reviews. The ratings have been above average since 2016.


85.7%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
