POCO is the sub-brand of pioneer the Smartphone manufacturing brand Xiaomi. POCO builds entry-level to mid-range phones while the mother brand Xiaomi targets the upper midrange to flagship-level Smartphone market. On the 5th of November in 2020, POCO has launched its most affordable Smartphone POCO C3. It can be a great choice for people who are looking for an entry-level budget Smartphone for regular use. Stay with us to know POCO C3 Price in Bangladesh with detailed specs and full review.
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.
Are you on the search for the best reliable affordable official Smartphone of 2020? All your needs can be fulfilled by the Poco M2 Smartphone released on the 5th of November in 2020. As a sub-brand of Xiaomi, Poco aims to produce entry-level to mid-range phones. Read this article, to know the official Poco M2 price in Bangladesh with the full review.
Poco M2: Review of Key Features
Here you get 6.53-inch IPS LCD display. This size is quite comfortable to watch contents. One of the most amazing facts about POCO M2 is its full HD+ display with a resolution of 1080 by 2340 pixels, at 19.5:9 ratios with ~395 PPI densities. You can hardly find any other brand that is offering such a great feature under this price range.
Though Poco boasts about the inclusion of 400 nits brightness for its M2 Smartphone, its sunlight visibility is quite average. Its display is protected by the corning gorilla glass 3. This device features about ~83.2% screen-to-body ratio. The bezels and chins are not so thick.
Though Poco M2 is made of a plastic frame with a plastic back, its build quality is far better than many pricier competitor phones from other brands. The back part presents two shades of color that make this look smart. On the upper edge of M2, there is a noise cancellation microphone and an IR blaster. The bottom edge is occupied by the single bottom-firing speaker, USB type C port, speaker grill, and 3.5mm audio jack.
Thanks to Poco for providing the type C port and IR blaster in this phone that make this device more user-friendly. The volume rocker and power button are placed on the right side. And, the triple slot tray is found on the left side. In this device, you can use dual nano-SIM cards with a dedicated memory card.
On the rear side of this phone, you will get a quad-camera setup with a flash and a fingerprint sensor. Unlike other phones, in the Poco M2 Smartphone, the fingerprint sensor has been placed inside the camera bump. But Poco M2 has a noticeable design flaw that the users can unintentionally make the cameras dirty by accidentally touches while looking for the fingerprint sensor. Another downside is that the box has no back cover. Don’t worry! Poco M2 will amaze you with many other exciting features!
Poco M2 is packed with four camera series on its rear side. This setup includes a 13MP f/2.2 prime shooter, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor, 5MP f/2.4 macro sensor, and 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. On the front side, there is an 8MP f/2.0 selfie shooter.
Though many Smartphone manufacturing brands are advertising high configuration cameras in recent days, only a few can maintain quality. In presence of ample daylight, Poco M2’s prime rear shooter can capture excellent photos. The color vibrancy and detailing is good, but the dynamic range is not so overwhelming.
The performance of its macro camera is more than average. You can take good selfies under portrait mode. Compared with the competitor phones, Poco M2 does a good job of preserving the clarity of photos under low light situations. But still, there may be some noises that should be ignored considering its price range.
On the front side, the selfie camera comes with a trendy top-notch design. You can capture good photos with the front camera, but the dynamic range is quite average like its rear camera setup. Both the front and rear camera can take 1080p footage at 30fps.
Poco M2 is blessed with 6GB RAM. This extra RAM power would improve your experience while dealing with advanced gaming software or heavy apps. The basic variant sports 64GB of internal storage and for the upper variant, this capacity reaches 128GB. Here you get eMMC 5.1 storage technology that is acceptable in this price range. Both the fingerprint sensor and face unlock system work fast. The sound quality is average.
In this phone, Poco has applied MIUI 11 OS on top of Android 10. Its user interface is free from the advertisement that is really praiseworthy! It has about 10 pre-installed apps. You can uninstall the unnecessary apps to make the user interface run more smoothly.
Poco M2 is equipped with the MediaTek Helio G80 12nm SoC. Its octa-core processor is built with cortex architecture A-75 and A-55 cores with an utmost clock speed of 2.0GHz. The graphical unit of this phone has been enriched with the Mali-G52 MC2 graphics card.
Helio G80 performs great for playing the gaming software efficiently. You can comfortably play contemporary multiplayer games such as PUBG, COD, Freefire, etc. However, after playing games continuously for one hour, the backside of this device may catch some heat. Not to mention, this slight heating issue should be ignored for this entry-level Smartphone.
Poco M2 is provided with a 5000mAh battery. With this phone, the company delivers a 10Watt charger. For normal use, you can get battery support for more than a day; while heavy use can provide 10h of support on a single charge session.
It takes around 2 hours and 45 minutes to fully recharge this phone. However, Poco claims that M2 is compatible with an 18W charger. But in a practical test, recharging with an 18W charger has failed to reduce the charging time. Beware of this 18W charging gimmick!
Currently, Poco M2’s official basic variant 6GB/64GB costs only BDT 15,999 in Bangladesh. And, the upper variant 6GB/128GB is officially available in Bangladesh at BDT 16,999. The price may change depending upon the circumstances.
You can’t expect much from a budget phone. But Poco M2 is offering some attractive features like the mind-blowing Full HD+ display, powerful RAM, good camera performance, standard battery support, reliable processor, etc. If you are looking for the best official Smartphone under 17000, Poco M2 deserves your attention!

Covid-19 has forced most of the world into a complete lockdown this year, and with that, a change of heart from many about fitness and its importance. Whether it’s out of boredom or an urgent necessity to get into shape because of unchecked binge eating; many have ventured into sports facilities and the open roads to begin a new fitness journey - and with it, fitness gadgets. Fitbit, was one of the pioneers, having specialised in heart monitoring and step tracking before Apple, but the latter has made waves with its ever commercialised upgrades almost annually. Can Fitbit Sense keep up when versusing the Apple Watch? Let’s figure out which one is right for you.
It’s in the name - Fitbit was designed to assist fitness enthusiasts with cutting edge technology. Even though Apple was heavily involved in making smartwatches mainstream, Fitbit Sense can definitely pull its weight and then some. This is Fitbit’s most premium model and prides itself with many neat gadgets, with the first being an Electrodermal Activity Sensor (EDA). As a medically certified ECG monitor and screen temperature sensor, this feature tracks the stress levels of the wearer through sweat and gives a prompt reminder accordingly. It is a new addition and unique to the Sense. By no means did this tech piece pioneer the feature on a smartwatch, but it certainly is one of the best at what it does.
Another highlight that this watch prides itself on is its Sp02 sensor. The tool measures your blood oxygen levels overnight and provides data of the results in the morning. This is good for monitoring your quality of sleep and general health when your body is at rest. Unlike the EDA, this software is not medically certified and still has a chance to face technical difficulties. The device is also compatible with Amazon Alexa and has traditional smartwatch applications such as spotify, Fitbit playlist, Fitbit Pay and even Google Assistant. The device is compatible with Android and has a 6-day battery life. The Fitbit Sense prides itself on being the”Advanced Health Smartwatch” and it certainly has put all its eggs into that basket which customers can view as either, the most serious health tech one can have, or just another smartwatch with a few extra gimmicks that will remain unused.
Apple Series 6
The newest in the Apple Smartwatch department, the Series 6, much like the iphones impress with its gradual climb to great heights through adding more and more with each iteration until it becomes a complete piece with every application to suit your needs - and ones that you didn’t know you needed. This edition went live in September and comes in 40mm and 44mm. The watch prides itself on Sp02, much like the Fitbit Sense - but neither a copy of the other as they almost have an identical launch date. Unlike the Fitbit Sense, Apple has a dedicated Sleep Tracking app that is dedicated to offering you data purely on your quality of sleep cycle, versus Fitbit Sense’s more general approach to nocturnal monitoring.
The watch returns with its key hits from previous iterations such as top-notch water resistance, Apple Pay purchase capabilities, Always-On display (that is 2.5 times higher than its predecessor and much more. In terms of versatility and quality, this watch is a hard piece to beat - and if you are an iPhone user, this will feel like an extension of your phone which makes transitioning between interfaces seamless. But to decide whether this is a bang for your buck, it’s important to take a step back and think about how much you require to optimise your workouts. If a simple pedometer will suffice, there isn’t much reason to look at any other watches.
Both watches are neck and neck with their quality of technology, applications for the fitness buff and style, but it once again boils down to what your priorities are when it comes to Health and Wellness. The Apple Watch is a great start for anyone who already has an iPhone and prefers a user-friendly interface with just enough health apps to keep you occupied; while the Fitbit Sense is at the highest echelon if you are looking to zoom in on your general wellbeing and workouts - and can sacrifice identical usability with your phone.
Nowadays, brands are competing with each other to provide the best possible features in the lowest possible price ranges. The Shenzhen-based smartphone manufacturing company Tecno Mobile has moved one step ahead of its competitors by releasing its latest all-rounder budget Smartphone Tecno Spark 6. If you are looking for an efficient phone for playing PUBG or attending virtual classes, keep reading this article on Tecno Spark 6 review with its price in Bangladesh.
Tecno Spark 6’s body is built with a plastic frame with a plastic back. Its back panel has a bit glossy finish that may catch fingerprints unless you apply the provided back cover. This phone features 83.2 percent screen-to-body ratios. The presence of an overall narrow chin makes the Spark 6 look smart. However, the lower chin is a bit thicker which could have been narrower.
Tecno Spark 6 is provided with a big display with a massive battery. Though this phone is not lightweight, it won’t be tough for holding on one hand. Spark 6 holds the volume rocker and power button on its right side. On the left side, this phone has a triple-slot tray for the dual nano-SIM card slot and a dedicated memory card.
The bottom edge packs a 3.5mm audio jack, a primary microphone, and a micro USB port. Lack of USB type C port is a noticeable demerit of Spark 6. Its bottom edge has no speaker grill, which means Spark 6 has no dedicated speaker. The earpiece speaker placed near the upper edge can serve as a loudspeaker.
On the rear panel, it has a smart fingerprint scanner. The round-shaped camera house on its backside looks elegant. The face-unlock system works fast under proper light. The box includes a headphone that many brands don’t provide in recent days.
Tecno Spark 6 sports a 6.8-inch IPS LCD screen. The punch-hole camera cut on the front screen allows a wide immersive display. It is certainly a blessing for those people who love to watch movies, TV series, or YouTube videos on a larger mobile screen. Here you get an HD plus display featuring 720 x 1640 pixels of resolution at 20:9 ratios with about ~ 263 PPI densities. Though the lack of full HD plus display may dishearten the consumers, considering the budget, it is not a big deal.
The low PPI indicates that the sharpness of Spark 6’s screen is not so overwhelming. Moreover, due to the big display, the panel may further lose sharpness. In spite of these issues, the color punch, vibrancy, and latency have made this display more than enough for attaining virtual meetings/classrooms, watching media, or playing games. Its brightness is average, but the sunlight visibility is not so great. The tough response is quite average. Spark 6 is available in two colors: Ocean Blue and Comet Black.
Spark 6 is equipped with an octa-core processor with Cortex A75 and A55 architecture featuring 2.0GHz of utmost clock speed. Tecno Mobile has provided the Mediatek Helio G70 12 nm SoC in its Spark 6 Smartphone. The Helio G70 is a proven gaming-friendly chipset that we have seen in some other budget gaming phones like the realme C3, Infinix Note 7, etc. Interestingly, Helio G70 performs better in the Spark 6 due to the efficient combination of software and hardware.
This Smartphone is programmed with HIOS 7.0 UI on top of the Android 10 operating system. It has some bloatware and ads. You can close the ads by turning off the ‘instant app’ option from the settings. The Tecno Spark 6 carries 4GB RAM that facilitates smooth operation during multitasking, and moderate level gaming. Moreover, this phone has 128GB of internal storage. No other brand is offering such a great combo (4GB by 128GB) under this budget.
With this Smartphone, you can smoothly play PUBG at ‘HD’ graphics and ‘high’ frame rate. You can also choose the ‘smooth’ graphics to play at the ‘Ultra’ frame rate. If you want to avoid lags, the 60fps gameplay would be the best. Call of duty (COD) game can be played in a more optimized setting. Its big display provides an added advantage while gaming. Furthermore, this device performs well while playing other multiplayer games such as Asphalt 9, FreeFire, etc.
The Tecno Spark 6 may catch some heat when used continuously for more than an hour. However, this can’t be identified as a significant heating issue. During the heavy action moments, some kind of stuttering might occur. But, considering the price range, this issue can be ignored. In simple words, Tecno Spark 6 is a superb gaming Smartphone under budget.
Tecno Spark 6 can amaze you with an exclusive feature called ‘Bluetooth audio sharing’ that can facilitate you to use multiple wireless audio devices at a time. The sound quality of the loudspeaker is below average. This phone has no issues in Wi-Fi connectivity, networking, and GPS tracking.
Tecno Spark 6 bears a quad-camera setup on its rear side including a 16MP prime shooter, 2MP macro sensor, 2MP depth sensor, and QVGA. On the front side, it offers an 8MP punch-hole selfie camera. However, Spark 6 would have been the best deal, if the manufacturer could provide a wide-angle camera on this phone.
Under ample light conditions, its 16MP prime shooter takes pretty photos with proper sharpness, detailing, and dynamic range. The 2MP depth sensor captures nice selfies with good edge detection and adequate sharpness. For macro photography, you can apply the 2MP macro sensor. But it performs average under proper lighting. The fourth AI (artificial sensor) camera serves for some special purposes, like image optimization, beauty mode, etc.
The shutter speed of these sensors may feel a bit slow, but steady focusing can produce images of expected quality. Photos captured under low light conditions deliver average quality with some noises. The AI sensor’s beauty optimization may irritate those people who expect natural colors in their photos. Though the color accuracy is not natural, the pictures look great enough for uploading on social media sites.
The 8MP selfie camera is able to capture good selfies with a nice sharpness. The dynamic range is average. Like the rear AI sensor, the front sensor’s imposed beauty mode makes the subject look brighter with added softness. These social-media ready photos look nice, but the application of ‘beauty mode’ should be provided as an optional feature. Interestingly, the front-facing camera is provided with two lights that can assist you while taking photos in low light conditions.
With the rear camera setup, you can record up to 1440p footage at 30fps. Here you get necessary features like HDR, panorama, QLED flash, beautification (Bokeh mode), slo-mo 240fps, short video, etc. The video quality is average. But the provision of stability mode could help you capture better footage. Adding to this, the front camera can be used to capture 1080p video clips at 30fps.
Tecno Spark 6 is powered by a 5000mAh battery. Though the manufacturer claims that Spark 6 is compatible with an 18Watt charger, the box includes only a 10-watt charge that is quite disappointing. But don’t panic! On a single charge session, this phone can serve for more than a day, even after heavy usage.
The Tecno Spark 6 (4GB/128GB) is officially available in Bangladesh for BDT 13,990. Tecno phones come with 100 days of replacement guaranty with 13 months of warranty.
Owning the Tecno Spark 6 phone, you get a 6.8-inch display with HD plus resolution, 4GB RAM, internal storage of 128GB, Helio G70 gaming chipset, and 5000mAh battery backup. On the downside, Spark 6 has no USB C type port, lacks a wide-angle camera, and delivers poor audio quality. Overall, Tecno Spark 6 offers a balanced deal under 14000 price ranges.
