POCO C3: Review of Key Features
POCO C3 appears with a trendy slim design. Though it weighs about 194g, you can comfortably hold this device with one hand. It features a plastic build body with a plastic back. The back panel presents a combo of the glossy finish on the upper area and textured matte finish from the middle to the lower portion. The company boasts that C3’s rear panel is protected by a flash-proof P2i nano-coating.
It has a 3.5mm headphone jack on the upper edge. The bottom edge sports a micro USB port, a speaker grille, and a primary microphone. The volume rocker and power button are placed on the right side. The triple-slot SIM card tray is found on the left. In this phone, you can insert dual nano-SIM cards and an external memory card at a time. It has no secondary noise cancellation microphone.
On the rear side, C3 bears a triple camera setup. However, the camera bump is not appreciable. The application of a back cover is recommended to protect the sensors from scratches. The box doesn’t provide any back cover, so you have to buy one! You would find the ‘POCO’ logo just below the camera housing. This phone has no fingerprint sensor that is quite disappointing!
POCO C3 offers a 6.43-inch IPS LCD screen. In this phone, you get HD+ plus resolution featuring 720 x 1600 pixels, 20:9 ratios, and ~ 270 PPI densities. In this price range, you can’t expect a full HD display. The quality of its display is not so overwhelming, but the vibrancy of colors looks attractive. This device would be handy for watching videos, web series, or movies. Besides this, people who are looking for a Smartphone to attain virtual meetings, or online classrooms, can grab this phone!
With an 80.3% screen-to-body ratio, C3’s chins and bezels are highly noticeable. With 400 nit brightness, this phone provides average performance in direct sunlight. The touch response works fine. Though the display is protected by Panda glass, you can apply an additional glass protector to enhance the durability of its screen.
POCO C3’s CPU is built with an octa-core processor featuring cortex-A53 architecture with the utmost clock speed of 2.3GHz. The C3 carries MediaTek’s 12nm chipset Helio G35, combined with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. We have seen this processor configuration before in some other entry-level phones, such as realme C11.
POCO C3 comes in two variants. The lower variant bears 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage. And, the upper variant has 4GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage. Thanks to Xiaomi for offering the latest MIUI 12 user interface in this phone on top of Android 10. Now you can enjoy all the amazing features of MIUI 12 on a budget phone. POCO C3 would perform well in regular multitasking, like browsing social media or watching movies. However, this phone can rarely struggle for opening some heavy-duty apps or software.
It should be made clear that POCO C3 is in no way a gaming Smartphone. Therefore, people who are looking to buy a phone for gaming purposes should skip this phone. POCO C3’s processor can open contemporary multiplayer gaming software like PUBG, COD, Freefire, Asphalt 9, etc. But you may experience frequent lags and stuttering during the gameplay.
The sound quality of POCO C3 is below average. But it has no issues in networking, call quality, internet speed, web browsing, etc.
Though at first sight, you may think that POCO C3 has a quad rear camera series, in reality, C3 holds a triple rear camera setup with a LED flashlight. This design will remind you about the Redmi 9C.
In the triple camera setup of POCO C3, you get a 13MP f/2.2 main camera, a 2MP f/2.4 macro sensor, and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. On the front side, it has a 5MP f/2.2 top-notch selfie shooter. Let’s turn to the camera performance.
POCO C3’s 13MP prime rear camera features an f/2.2 aperture. According to experts, the poor aperture size makes this camera less capable of taking excellent images. However, you can still capture some good images in ample light conditions. The color saturation is close to natural. The auto-focusing performs properly. But in the photos, there won’t be much detailing. In low light, this camera delivers poor performance. However, you can’t expect much from an entry-level Smartphone.
The 2MP portrait sensor can detect the edges of the main subject and blur out the background skillfully. You can capture tiny objects with the provided 2MP macro shooter. Considering the budget, these sensors won’t disappoint you. You can record 1080p footage at 30fps. The quality of video clips is quite average, but the dynamic range could have been better.
For selfie lovers, POCO C3 offers a 5MP front camera. This sensor is capable of taking average quality photos. But the background is likely to blow out. In the photos, the skin tone of subjects may display some added softness. The photos may lack dynamic range, sharpness, and details. Like the rear cameras, the front camera also requires proper light to take satisfactory images. The selfie camera can also be used for shooting 1080p videos at 30fps.
POCO C3 is provided with a Li-Po 5000 mAh non-removable battery. You can easily get more than 24 hours of battery backup after a single recharge session when used moderately. This phone comes with a 10W charger that takes more than 3h for recharging the device fully.

POCO C3 is now officially available in Bangladesh. Its basic variant (3GB by 32GB) is available at BDT 11,999. And to own the upper variant, you have to pay BDT 12,999. The price may change upon company decisions.
On the whole, POCO C3 is an affordable Smartphone under 12000 to 13000 price-ranges. This phone is not recommended for heavy-duty gaming. But POCO C3 can serve well for regular operations including watching media, web browsing, attaining virtual meetings, multi-tasking, etc. This phone is highly suitable for senior citizens. You can also consider it, as a secondary phone.
