Weekly poll: can Poco M3 Pro 5G’s low pricing tempt you into buying one?

0 13

The Poco M3 is a hit, the company has shipped over 3.2 million units since the phone was launched. Now comes a Pro version of the device – it should be even better, right? In many ways it is, and the price of early bird of € 160 is just above the current price of the vanilla model (€ 150, a 4 / 64GB configuration in both cases).

It’s obviously a good price for a 5G phone, but does the Poco M3 Pro 5G hold up when you look past its modem?

Compared to its 4G vanilla siblings, you get a higher refresh rate for the screen (90Hz), a faster chipset (Dimensity 700), newer Android version out of the box and NFC (though only in some regions). And 5G, of course. However, you drop from a 6,000 mAh battery to 5,000 mAh.

Compared to the Realme 8 5G you get a similar (if slightly weaker) screen, similar camera, similar battery too. Currently, the Realme 4/64 GB model sells for € 180, down from the normal price of € 200. Poco’s price for early bird means the M3 Pro is € 20 cheaper right now, although it will go up to € 180 when the campaign is over.

You can also look at Samsung’s Galaxy A32 5G and A42 5G, although they are more expensive, which puts them out of contention for the title under € 200, and their 720p + screens still make them tough sales.

Remember that the price of the early bird is only valid for the first few sales days, which already started on Thursday. How long they last varies by platform and may have already expired before Sunday.

So you got one, or are you still at the fence? That € 20 sounds good, but it may still be worth the wait for reviews to come out – we should start working on ours soon.
