POCO F3 5G – Review

After the popular POCO F2 Pro, the successor, the POCO F3, which did not receive the Pro label, arrived in almost everything compared to its predecessor and became a worthy member of the F-series, which laid the foundation for the brand’s success.
Our readers familiar with the subject will have noticed that the POCO F3 is not really a brand new Xiaomi device, but an international version of the Redmi K40, which can also be found on our site.

On the front of the F3 is a 6.67-inch, FullHD+ resolution, 120Hz image refresh, HDR 10+, E4 AMOLED display with a maximum brightness of 1300 nits. Using the latest technology, the AMOLED display consumes 15% less energy than its counterparts, and thanks to its extremely high brightness, it can be used without problems in the sun. It has the best color accuracy among POCO’s current displays.

The new model has also switched to a higher speed in terms of hardware, the Snapdragon 865 system chip already known in the F2 Pro has been replaced by the manufacturer with the Snapdragon 870, which means with flagship 7nm process technology, the performance has been massively improved, about 10-15 percent. Of course, this improvement is also true for games, thanks to the Adreno 650 graphics accelerator, even the most serious games will not be a problem for the new model.

In addition to the lightning-fast Qualcomm chip, there are 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR5 memory, depending on the packaging, while UFS 3.1 128GB or 256GB chunks are available from mass storage, also depending on the version.

In terms of cameras, there has been a slight decline in resolution, as instead of the 64 MP Sony IMX686, the F3 has a 48 megapixel SONY IMX582 1/2″, f/1.8 aperture. With average usage, of course, we won’t see much difference in image quality other than resolution.
No progress has been made in the field of image stabilization, so the optical image stabilizer has been left out this time as well, but of course the electronic assistance does its job well here as well.

Beneath the main camera are the 8-megapixel ultra-wide (119-degree) viewing angle and the 5-megapixel telegraph (50mm) units. A 20 megapixel selfie camera was placed on the front panel again.
