Review of POCO M3 Pro 5G smartphone based on Mediatek Dimensity 700

Photos taken with camera

Contents

The POCO M3 Pro 5G uses a 48 MP sensor from OmniVision (ov48b) at f/1.79. The 48 MP is 1/2 inch sensor which helps to capture more light. Photos taken are in 12 MP unless 48 MP is selected.

There is also a 2 MP macro camera at f/2.4 with 2 MP depth sensor which takes close up shots when selected. Below is the user interface.

So, will it be able to do well in low light shots? Let’s take a few shots taken in night mode.

The shots in Night mode appears a bit overly sharpen, colours are over saturated. The original photo which was taken in normal mode appears a bit duller. Surprisingly, the same shot taken in 48 MP mode appears on par with Night mode.

The Pixel 3 XL photo has cooler colours while the ones taken by the POCO are warmer.

Let’s take a look at one of the macro shots vs normal shot. With macro shot, the object can be as close as 4 to 5 cm whereas you would normally need to use digital zoom in normal mode to get close to the letterings on the adapter as shown in the picture below – Macro shot (left) vs Normal shot (right)
