The Real Beast with powerful performance

The most powerful POCO device so far, POCO F3 sports Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 870 5G Mobile

Platform, featuring an upgraded Qualcomm® Kryo™ 585 CPU prime core clock speed of up to 3.2

GHz as well as the lightning fast 5G connectivity. Along with the ultra-fast Qualcomm® Adreno™

650 GPU, POCO F3 delivers superb on-device experience. Paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1

storage, the flagship setup guarantees faster read-write speeds for multitasking. The boosted

performance is embodied in its high efficiency 7nm processor as well as the LiquidCool Technology

1.0 Plus which allows the device to deliver sustained peak performance.

The Real Beast with flagship display & design

Game smooth, swipe smooth! POCO F3’s 120Hz high refresh rate provides unprecedented

smoothness in gaming on the large 6.67″ display. Meanwhile, the 360Hz touch sampling rate

and the fine-tuned touch algorithm allows the phone to respond extremely fast to the touch

of your fingertips.

The display features one of the tiniest dots in the industry at just 2.76mm. The minimal dot

complements the slim 7.8mm body. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 on both front and back

gives the phone sturdy protection.

The Real Beast with immersive entertainment

POCO F3 is equipped with flagship-level dual speakers, offering top-quality mobile entertainment

experience. Certified by Dolby Atmos®, the speakers provide realistic surround sound, offering an

incredible immersive audio-visual experience. POCO F3 is also the first POCO device to feature

triple microphones with 360° surround sound pick-up capabilities. Easily remove background noise,

record panoramic surround sound, and zoom in to clearly amplify the sound you want to hear.

REVIEWS

The Xiaomi Poco F3 is a considerable step up from the Poco X3 NFC in virtually every regard, including price. But it still represents a bit of a bargain considering what you’re getting.

With an extremely fast Snapdragon 870 chipset and an impeccable 120Hz AMOLED display, it gets closer to that flagship feeling than the vast majority of sub-£400/$500 phones.

Gamers and media fiends on a budget, in particular, will want to bump the Poco F3 to the top of their wish list. We simply can’t think of a more capable phone for the money – not with such a responsive display and near-flagship levels of performance, at any rate.

Battery life is strong, too, with the Poco F3 capable of standing up to a day of intensive usage. Meanwhile, the provision of a 33W fast charger is both more generous and more rapid than any current offering from Apple or Samsung.

Pros
*Superb performance
*Fabulous screen
*Great battery life
*Bargain price

Cons
*Camera is merely decent
*Confusing camera UI
*Fingerprint magnet
*No 3.5mm headphone jack

Xiaomi has returned with another Pocophone: the Poco F3.

Technically the brand hasn’t been away for very long, with last year’s excellent Poco X3 NFC shaking up what can be done for under £200, but what we were really looking forward to was a follow-up to the excellent Pocophone F1, which offered flagship quality speeds for only £329. 
 
This is a gap in the market that the Poco F3 gleefully fills in the same way OnePlus handsets used to, before price inflation made them nearly as expensive as everything else on the market.

Xiaomi Poco F3 review: What you need to know

Like its predecessor, with the Poco F3 Xiaomi intends to prove that you don’t need to spend £700+ to get top-of-the-range internals and an enviable list of features.Image 2 of9

And while the Poco F3 doesn’t contain the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, it certainly offers significantly more than you could expect at its modest price point. 2018’s Poco F1 used Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 processor, but the follow-up now uses the second in command – the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, seen recently inside the Moto G100. This is backed by 16GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage (without a microSD card slot).

There are three cameras: a 48MP, f/1.8 main lens, an 8MP, f/2.2 ultrawide camera and a 5MP macro number for close-up photography. It also supports 5G, should you have coverage in your area and a sufficiently generous data plan to take advantage.

Xiaomi Poco F3 review: Price and competition

All of that comes to a very reasonable £329 for the 128GB version or £349 for the 256GB model. For reference, the only other phone we’ve looked at using the Snapdragon 870, the Moto G100, sells for £120 more.Image 3 of9
That makes the Poco F3 hugely competitive when you consider that other handsets around the £350 mark, while perfectly serviceable, clearly have weaker internals. There’s the Snapdragon 730G-powered Google Pixel 4a at £350, the slightly more expensive OnePlus Nord at £379 and a couple of £300 5G-capable options too: the awkwardly named Moto G 5G Plus and the Realme X50 5G.     

There’s also a wildcard option: the Apple iPhone SE. The entry-level iPhone is just £399 – still £70 more than the Poco F3, but dirt cheap by Apple’s standards. 

Xiaomi Poco F3 review: Design

Given that even the cheapest smartphone looks like the flagships of a few years ago, it should be no surprise that the Poco F3 looks the part. Nonetheless, it really does, with the large 6.67in screen dominating the front of the handset with barely any bezels. A pinhole camera is embedded in the top corner of the screen, and a fingerprint reader is built into the power button on the right-hand side.Image 4 of9
Flip it over and it’s all a bit dazzling, with the shiniest back I’ve seen since the HTC U11. While it looks nice enough if you like that kind of thing, it’s a bit of a fingerprint magnet, which means that shiny look won’t last for long if you have greasy mitts. It does come with a transparent plastic cover to make it more grippable and, ugly as it is, you probably want to add it anyway since it flattens out the pretty noticeable triple-camera bump and prevents the phone from wobbling when placed on a table.

Concerns about fingerprints and wobble aside, it’s both good looking and well designed, although it’s not the most consumer-friendly design we’ve seen. Although it supports dual SIM cards, there’s no room for microSD cards, and there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack, either. Still, neither of these drawbacks seems to have harmed recent iPhones, so it’s hard to be too mad. 

Xiaomi Poco F3 review: Screen

The Poco F3’s 6.67in 2,400 x 1,080 screen is not only AMOLED for perfect contrast and a true black level, but it’s also a 120Hz panel, meaning it offers smooth transitions and (theoretically) up to 120fps frame rates in supported games. It’s switched off by default for battery-saving reasons, but once enabled it makes using the device feel a lot smoother and generally easier on the eyes.

Xiaomi Poco F3 review: Performance

The main appeal of the Poco F3 is, of course, the tremendous value it offers, and it’s no exaggeration to say this offers the best performance per pound we’ve seen in an Android smartphone to date. Of course, you might get a better deal on the pre-owned market, but at retail prices it’s hard not to be impressed.Image 5 of9

As a quick recap, the Poco F3 uses the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, backed with 6GB of RAM. While that’s not the top-of-the-range Qualcomm processor found inside the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Oppo Find X3 Pro, it’s not an exaggeration to say it’s more than enough for any smartphone in 2021, and will probably continue to be so for the next couple of years.

But what’s really impressive isn’t the speed itself, but how Xiaomi has managed to squeeze it into such a competitively priced smartphone.

As you would expect, this performance carries over into 3D graphics. The Xiaomi Poco F3 manages over 60fps in the GFXBench Manhattan 3 onscreen test thanks to its 120Hz display, but the really impressive feat is with the offscreen result, where it shows its superiority over its rivals, pushing 132fps. Again, only the iPhone SE and Moto G100 compete – and they cost £70 and £120 more respectively.

Battery life is heroic, too. In our usual battery test, the Xiaomi Poco F3 lasted a mammoth 21hrs 19mins before giving up. As you can see from the chart below, that means it lasts a longer than most of the phones in the list, and has nearly double the battery life of the iPhone SE. You might get two days’ use out of it, then, but given most of us are used to plugging in our phones at night, this is less of a live issue than it used to be.
