As an avid phone gamer, I was delighted to hear that the POCO F3 was tailor-made for gamers. It offers powerful performance and entertainment on the go, and I couldn’t wait to test it out. I did an unboxing video below with the Mi11 5G.
My most played phone games are PUBG, Among Us, and Mobile Legends. I excitedly downloaded these games into the phone and was pleasantly surprised that PUBG was already pre-downloaded into the phone. POCO F3 is the brand’s most powerful device yet, powered by the Snapdragon 870 5G Mobile Platform. The device features an upgraded Qualcomm Kryo 585 CPU prime core clock speed of up to 3.2 GHz, which is an industry-leading prime core clock speed. Along with the ultra-fast Qualcomm Adreno 650 GPU, POCO F3 delivers a superb game-play experience.
I like to multitask to increase productivity. Paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, the flagship setup guarantees faster read-write speeds for multitasking. The boosted performance is embodied in its high efficiency 7nm processor as well as the LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus, which allows the device to deliver sustained peak performance. It even has tabs above that makes the applications so much more organised.
Beast 6.67″ AMOLED display & premium design
Connectivity speeds on the device while playing the games were top-notch, there was no lag while playing the games even when I was on discord in the background. POCO F3’s 120Hz high refresh rate gave me unprecedented smoothness when gaming on the large 6.67″ AMOLED display. It also features one of the tiniest dots in the industry at just 2.76mm. Additionally, the 360Hz touch sampling rate and the fine-tuned touch algorithm allows the phone to respond extremely fast to the touch of a fingertip. The MEMC technology, adding up to 60fps, further enhances the smoothness of video content.
Its HDR10+ certified display, along with the True Display and True Colour features, gave an eye-pleasing viewing experience with vibrant, highly accurate colour. More than that, the upgraded E4 material brings the screen’s peak brightness to 1300 nits, and helps reduce power consumption by 15% compared to the last-generation E3 material.
Measuring only 7.8mm thin and 196g in weight, the device feels comfortable and secure in the hand. At the same time, the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back gives the phone sturdy protection.
Beast entertainment with Dolby Atmos, AI triple camera setup and more
Rocking a dual speaker setup with a bottom main speaker and a secondary speaker at the top, POCO F3 produces rich, detailed sound. POCO F3 is the brand’s first device to enable Dolby Atmos, levelling up your sound for a thoroughly impressive audio experience for videos, music, and games in the Dolby Atmos format, through both headphones and built-in speakers.
POCO F3 comes in three colours, Arctic White, Night Black and Deep Ocean Blue, with two storage variants – 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB. The recommended retail price for the 6GB+128GB model is S$549 and S$599 for the 8GB+256GB model, via Shopee and authorised POCO retailers.
