Rm599 launch date price
poco m3 from last year is Rm500 but comes with a bigger battery  hmm.gif
comparison here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaIDAjbon2c
if you are on tight budget, then poco m3. if you can afford more and you don't mind a slightly worse battery then get the new poco m3 pro 5g for rm100 more. it also comes with a newer android 11, whereas with poco m3 you'll have to wait by end of this year for the android 11 update.

to summarize, everything about the poco m3 pro 5g is nice when compared to poco m3 except
- smaller battery
- no stereo speaker
- cost Rm100 more. will cost even more after the early bird promo price.

The only selling point is that it's the cheapest 5G phone in the market, but does the market really need a 5G phone at this point of time?

Planning to get the m3 on the 6th.

How's the performance so far after using it for a few months? Any lags?

personally i think huawei is dangerous to national sovereignty.... malaysia accused countries like australia for being  short sighted for being overly cautious. but it seems to be the opposite  hmm.gif

just recently they also invaded malaysia airspace. do friendly nations do this?  shakehead.gif

but anyway if you put 5g aside, the poco m3 pro 5g will have the latest android 11 right away, whereas the poco m3 is still on android 10  hmm.gif

narzo 30 vs poco m3 5g pro, seems the poco wins, because the poco has 5g and the narzo doesn't and it cost less.
https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPho...&idPhone2=10857
poco m3 was also compared to a narzo 30a, both can be bought for RM500. the narzo has a better cpu for gaming, but the poco has the better screen resolution and gorila glass, although the narzo has a higher brightness.

Ya, Mi phones are still the best bang for buck as far as the hardware specs to price ratio is concerned.

hows the os like?

i'm using a realme narzo30a. After debloating it somewhat, it's manageable. but a full debloat seems like you would need to root which is something i can't do  sad.gif

so hows things over with the Poco m3 that uses the Xiaomi OS?  hmm.gif  is it easier to debloat? or is it harder?

and is the OS better than realme?

I've not used Realme OS before so I can't really compare them. For MIUI/POCO, the 3rd party bloatware can be removed by simply uninstalling them. There are other bloatware from Xiaomi such as the video app and tools that can't be uninstalled but can be hidden (can be removed through rooting).

Lastly, there are also advertisements/recommendations, some of which can be disabled and some can't. For example, the music app will display ads that cannot be disabled. Overall, I think it is fairly straight forward to debloat. As for the ads, after disabling most of them, I only see them when I install apps and when I listen to music using the included music app.

To be honest, if you're getting it as a spare phone, then by all means.
But if you have a little more budget say RM799 would really recommend going for the Realme 8 5G.
Whether or not you need the 5G, the performance is much better than even the M3 Pro.
And also for Realme, you can debloat just like Poco.

The OS is a mixed bag, but I would say MIUI 12 is a huge step up from MIUI 11, and 12.5.1 is pretty flawless on my Redmi Note 10 Pro so far. There's a bit more effort required to tweak and debloat MIUI and remove those pesky ads compared to stock Realme UI, but once you get that done, then it's pretty good. Also, I find the power management on the Realme is far more aggressive than on the Xiaomi, so the battery life is better on Realme especially on the standby idle drain. Just before I switched to the RN10Pro, I was using A Realme 7 5G and I bought both phones at the same price, RM1099. Dollar for dollar, the RN10Pro is a better phone - OLED screen, stereo speakers, glass back and better main camera. The Realme I feel still has a better UI and user experience though.

De-bloating Xiaomi phones have been relatively easy without rooting so it's not an issue smile.gif I follow this method.

Anyone know where to get the phone case for Poco M3 Pro 5G? And the screen protector? Lazada and shopee doesn't seem to list any, for now.
