POCO F3 5G – The Real Beast unleashed in Nepal
The Poco F3 was presented at the end of March 2021, together with the Poco X3 Pro. And although the X3 model has Pro in its name, it’s actually the F3 model that is more powerful of the duo.
The Poco F3 from Xiaomi comes equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G processor. It is a less optimized version of the all-new and powerful Snapdragon 888, which maintains high-level performance at a much more advantageous price. It’s like a flagship on the cheap, or as other company would have called it – a flagship killer.
The device comes with 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM on board and because of that combination, performing a task is no problem, while you’re multitasking or playing a 3D game. The device also features LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus which comes with 3-Dimesnional heat dissipation system to diffuse off heat and cool down the processor more efficiently immediately.
Thanks to this chipset, there is also 5G support on board. State-owned telco Nepal Telecom is in the process of rolling out 5G across several cities and when it’s all ready you can immediately make full use of it.
The Poco F3 supports 11 global network bands with 360° Symmetrical Antenna Layout. It is also equipped with latest Wi-Fi 6 supporting a maximum bandwidth of 1.7 Gb/s which is an improvement of 270% over previous gen Wi-Fi 5.
The Poco X3 offers several top-notch features in every areas. Its 6.67 inch Full-HD+ (2,400 by 1,080 pixels) AMOLED display is one of the key highlights. Because of that combination, it looks bright, colors look more sparkling and black is really black. Thanks to its 120Hz refresh rate and a 360Hz touch response, it promises to offer a very smooth user experience.
The 20-megapixel selfie camera can be found in a small hole in the screen and on the back you will find three more cameras. The main variant has a resolution of 48 megapixels. And you want to fit more of your subject on the frame then you can easily and quickly switch to the 8 MP wide-angle lens with FOV 120° – useful for taking shots of buildings, nature or large groups of people. Lastly, there’s also a 5 megapixel telephoto lens with support of 3cm -7cm autofocus to capture spectacular shots of the micro world.
The camera module also includes Triple microphone Array which lets users to record sound as per their liking. Sounds can be recorded by isolating background noise or by recording panoramic 360° surround sound. Additionally, user can also focus or zoom into certain sounds using the camera app.
The Poco F3 is equipped with dual flagship level speakers certified by Dolby Atmos. The speakers provide more realistic near and far surround sound effects, offering an immersive and thrilling audio-visual experience. The device is also certified by Hi-Res Audio and Hi-Res Audio Wireless.
It is also worth mentioning that the Poco F3 comes equipped with a 4520mAh battery that can be charged quickly with a speed of 33W. All that is missing is the incorporation of wireless charging, something perfectly excusable given its affordable price.
