Ok, something about the phone not being fast. Well not being fast is kind of taking it low. This slow fuctionality is NOT due to hardware and Xiaomi needs to see what software issue exist. Just to test this i took my old Mi Max 2 that has like 50 extra apps install in it and also has 4Gb of ram and a Snapdragon 625. This is a 2017 phone, is closing 4 years since release. In the meantime i had like a gallery app, 2 photo editing apps, a wallpaper app and a browser open on it. So i rewind this video and pushed the camera app in the same exact moment he pushed it on the Poco. Reminding again i had open apps in the background. Well my Mi Max 2(Mi Max 2 was a $220 phone) opened the camera app quite faster. You can say that maybe the camera app on the Poco is heavier and the 48mp sensor needs more time than the 12Mp of the Mi Max 2 but still tons of apps installed on the phone, open apps on the background, having being used for so much time and getting heavier and the already weaker hardware getting slower should balance such thing easily. So this phone is just badly optimized. Is not slow for any specific reason or because it is lower budget. There is a problem with software and hardware cooperation here. How can a guy with so much experience reviewing devices not get that? Maybe because he doesn't review reasonably priced devices often.

American products: We have good quality, which is why we are expensive. 😎 European products: We also have good quality and high price. 😎 Chinese products: Amateurs, see all my products are sold very cheap all over the world, high specifications and good quality. 😂 America and Europe: Crying. 😭 Note: China is very brave enough to sell at very low prices with high specifications and good quality throughout the world. It will never be found in American and European products. At a very high price you can buy a lot of Chinese products on a par with American and European products. Never imagine American and European products being sold at low prices with high specifications and good quality. Because it's impossible ... 😂

I get what you're saying about the early bird pricing, but if you really want decent prices, wait 6 months. The early bird price for the X3 NFC was €200, 6 months after launch I got mine for €180. Not only that, but most of the annoying ads had been disabled on my phone as well. Now all I have to do is deal with the bloatware...

Set the animations to 0.5x or turn em off altogether and on version 12.0.4 it's faster than other SD 665/662, helio p70 and kirin 710 phones.

to those out there planning to get this phone but are worried about the UI stuttering and lag such as - waiting for the home screen to load - waiting for apps to load all these are fixed and optimized with a new firmware update for the phone it sure is very frustrating to wait for stuffs to load when the internal hardware is similar to my parents 2017 oppo r11s snapdragon 662 vs snapdragon 660 4gb ram on both but i just dont understand why the oppo r11s dont have such issues while the poco m3 does thankfully the new firmware update addresses this UI stuttering issues

And he doesn't even recognize there is some issue ether with early units or early software. He just thought is was slow because low budget. Just to test this i took my old Mi Max 2 that has like 50 extra apps install in it and also has 4Gb of ram and a Snapdragon 625. This is a 2017 phone, is closing 4 years since release. In the meantime i had like a gallery app, 2 photo editing apps, a wallpaper app and a browser open on it.

Even in 2017 it was a lower model Snapdragon. So this phone is just badly optimized. Is not slow for any specific reason or because it is lower budget. The question is, is this like that in the final product? And if yes can it be fixed with updates?

Sure, it’s impressive for the price, but I’d say save up a little more money and get the Poco X3. It’s a much better phone and an amazing bang for your buck, and once you put a case on it you won’t even notice the plastic back and it’ll feel like an Aluminum and Glass Flagship.

just turn off the animations in Developer Option. I've tested one and it did feel snappier. for the price with 1080p display and 6000mAh battery vs other brand that only has 720p display and lower battery capacity even having slower chipset than that of SD 662, POCO M3 is still the best option at its price range.

I hope that the big brands next year will start seeing 6000mah because to most important feature is battery because last year Samsung made 5000mah battery on their flagship phone and I know that last year they made a cheap Samsung phone that has 6000mah especially they making big camera bump on the phones just look at iphone 12 and Samsung s21 because it's better to have a flat surface back of the Phone
