The Pokemon M3 is an entry-level smartphone, but you don’t know it at first glance because the back is supposed to be plastic, and Pokemon doesn’t try to hide it and handles it as a resemblance to glass accents and Pokemon logos.
Instead of showing off the glossy glass, the back panel is somewhat matte with leather upholstery. It has a lot of possession. The frame is also made of plastic, and it’s smooth and dumb, which makes it even more grip The Pokemon M3 weighs less – about 200 grams – due to its larger battery packet, but it looks great on hand. The face has a large 6.53-inch IPS LCD screen, covered by Gorilla Glass 3, a selfie cam for 1080p resolution and a drop-sized icon. The display is great, it’s great to have 1080p at this price point.
And the content of the screen shows up very quickly. The contrast with dark blacks is good and the light is good in bright conditions when we measure a maximum of 440 nuts in auto mode. The colors aren’t exactly out of the box, but we’ve been able to achieve some color accuracy through the color settings. What surprised us about the Pokemon M3 is that it’s not just for the 3.5mm jack head, but a pair of dedicated steroid speakers – which you usually find on premium devices. These are placed above and below the frame and look well balanced.
All in all, their performance is one of the best we’ve heard lately. The Pokemon M3 got a “good” score in our top test and you get a strong bass and high mid tone. Another amazing feature of the Pokemon M3 is the battery life, thanks to its huge 6000 mAh power pack. You will have a hard time finding the phone with the best battery analysis. The Pokemon M3 has been able to achieve an incredible 154 hour rating in our battery life tests! On the other hand, the charging speed is not very efficient. The M3 supports charging up to 18W, with this bundled adapter we can take only 25 charges from zero in half an hour. It will take about 3 hours to take full charge.
Opening the Poco M3 with a fingerprint reader on the top and neck. It’s very responsive, though it’s not as fast as we’ve seen other readers since, probably because of the endless speed. As far as storage is concerned, you can choose 64 or 128GB on board and it is accessible via microSD. The Pokemon M3 user interface is MIUI 12 on Android 10.
You’re probably running it on the latest Xiaomi smartphones. While most of the work is provided by Google Apps, there are some proprietary features such as gallery, music or security apps. At MIUI 12 you can divide the notification shadow into 2 boards. Notification panel and control panel, as you will see in iOS. By default the app drawer is enabled which stalls your applications and categorizes them into categories if you wish.
However, even in our unit, we occasionally start virus scanners after installing certain ads or some from the Play Store ads and in some markets it can be very bad. Underneath the Pokমনmon M3 hood is the Snapdragon 662 chipset, the recently released, but lower-end Silicon. It works well for this category but performance is one of the places that Pokemon M3 budget shines. However, you can sometimes experience a hitchhiking when you swipe the home screen or switch between apps. You may encounter some problems while running heavy apps or games, you can do this without turning off the graphics format or even changing the game resolution to 720p.
