About xiaomi poco m3 pro 5g

POCO M3 Pro 5G is a pretty-looking device with it amazing specifications. It's built with a plastic frame that feels like glass on its rear design. It is a lightweight device, comfortable to grip, and has a glossy finish. 

It displays on Full HD+ IPS LCD, with a Dynamicswitch that can be enabled for the display to automatically switch between 30/50/60/90Hz refresh rate for users' smoother experience. Though its typical brightness (330nits) is quite disappointing for me, it can be ignored if it is not a necessary feature for your needs. 

In addition, it has a 90Hz refresh rate which is not enabled by default so you do that manually. Also, it's a friendly-budget phone so you don't expect much; it does not support any IP rating.

Fortunately, It comes with POCO's latest MIUI and OS which highlight the UI/UX design and POCO's advanced device upgrade experience for users.

POCO M3 Pro Design

Poco M3 Pro comes with a more compact design than its predecessor (Poco M3). It is a glossy pick-up fingerprint; though quite slippery we can say it is POCO set up in terms of design on their POCO M series line.  

It dashes out with three variant colors but here I have the Power black model. Easy to grip, comfortable, and well cut out even though it is not the best design in the field of budget smartphones; it does feel somehow premium

It is also a lightweight device sadly it does not come with any IP Rating which ordinally doesn't expect any user to expect this feature for the device price range.

POCO M3 Pro Display

As I said earlier POCO M3 Pro display on IPS LCD (In-Plane Switching Liquid Crystal Display) that is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (Front) with a Full HD+ Resolution. Which is quite impressive. 

But its brightness is not the best I've seen; it is pretty better in low-light conditions for eye protection but does struggle under direct sunlight to view. 

It comes with a punch hole under the display and a lot of customizable features for users' experience like Reading Mode, Paper Mode, advanced setting, Color Scheme, Super Resolution, AI Image Enhancement, AI HDR Enhancement, and MEMC.

Dark mode can also be enabled, to be used for the first-third party app in this device with a lot of amazing features attached to this mode with immense experience.

POCOs implement the timeless network, for all POCO lovers to experience smoother streaming online with no act-up, which indeed makes it classic in the field of the budget-smartphone market.
