The Poco M3 Pro 5G sits on the budget category, just like the majority of the phones from the brand. The recent M3 Pro was among the most interesting options earlier this year due to its specs and really good price. The M3 Pro 5G continues that with a price of less than 200 euros, 179 euros to be exact.
Phandroid recently gave its first impressions on the phone. They found great results with one game and will continue testing it for the full review. The only disappointment for them so far is the camera system, which is the same one found in the M3. They expected more out of the Pro version when it comes to camera but the upgraded version keeps everything from the previous release. The user testing the phone was also not a fan of the glossy back, which he described as a mess since he feels like it is almost impossible to clean.
Poco’s recent releases such as the X3 and M3 are pretty interesting. But the brand has managed to make things even more interesting in just a few months. What do you think about Poco phones? Are you planning to purchase the upgraded M3? Let us know in the comments.
