    Smartphone gives Little, or Poco M3 is the cheapest smartphone with the most features in 2020. Come and meet the new “king of cost-benefit”.

    As with the Pocophone F1 in 2018, another smartphone from Poco (now an independent brand from Xiaomi) drew attention for combining two things that Spanish people love: quality and low price.

    But wait, you're going to talk about the Poco X3 right? It would even be the case if POCO hadn't launched the M3.



    LITTLE M3 chegou!

    The device announced and launched by surprise, in the middle of Black Friday is the most interesting intermediate / basic smartphone to buy today.

    The Poco M3 has prices starting from R$ 721, in the official POCO store on Aliexpress. This is its big difference. It is 300 reais cheaper than any “cheap” cell phone sold in China and up to 500 reais cheaper than any intermediate smartphone sold in Spain.

    As if that weren't enough, the M3 doesn't disappoint anyone looking for a “basic-intermediate” appearance. Standard 4GB/64GB with processor Snapdragon 662, with a great set of cameras and a mega battery of 6.000 mAh.

    The display is IPS LCD, but impresses by the resolution (for an almost entry-level device) They are 2340×1080 pixels.

    But let's be honest here. When buying imported, you can still have the misfortune of being taxed by the recipe. Even so, the device is still worth it. The “standard fee” is usually around R$200 reais. So, at the end of the day, it's still really worth importing the M3.

    How or Poco M3 will behave in the games?

    Our business here is mobile games, so you must be asking yourself: “yes, and how will it behave in games?”.



    We can expect something close to the performance of the Realme 7i launched a month ago. Therefore, very heavy games like Fortnite and GRID Autosport will suffer a little to run on Poco M3 (They even run, but don't expect to play at 60 FPS). Already more optimized titles like PUBG, COD Mobile and Genshin Impact, will run on the “medium” setting without problems.

    Where to buy

    The place to purchase the Poco M3 is directly at the official POCO store on Alixpress. The smartphone is being sold at a promotional price of US$ 129 dollars (which would give R$ 689 reais), but when you access the BR version of the Alixpress website, you will see the price of R$ 721 reais. This is due to our “dear” dollar index that varies every day.

    The discounted promotion goes on tomorrow (30) after that, the price goes to R$ 777.
