This month we have seen two budget smartphones introduced in the Indian market. These two devices are Poco M3 and Nokia 5.4. Let’s compare the two handsets and see which is the better one to buy keeping all aspects in consideration. This is a small comparison between the specs and budget of these two smartphones that seems to share sme kinds of specs on paper but let’s who wins the people’s choice.
Nokia 5.4 features a 6.39-inch HD+ display as compared to Poco M3’s 6.53-inches FHD+ LCD display. The display size of the two smartphones are similar but Poco M3 edges out Nokia 5.4 in terms of display resolution. Poco M3 has a screen resolution of 2340×1080 in comparison to the Nokia 5.4 resolution of 720 x 1,560 pixels.
Poco M3 and Nokia 5.4, both are powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662G mobile processor. Hence, nothing to separate between the two in this aspect.
Nokia 5.4 offers a quad-camera setup which includes a 48MP primary sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2 MP lens for depth shots, and one 2 MP macro camera. In comparison to this, the POCO M3 sports a triple rear camera setup.
This setup includes a 48 MP primary camera, a 2 MP macro, and a 2 MP depth sensor. The additional 5 MP ultra-wide sensor in Nokia 5.4 gives it the edge in this domain.
Poco M3 is packed with a powerful 6,000mAh battery cell and is paired with 18W fast charging technology. As compared to this, Nokia 5.4 offers you a much weaker 4,000mAh battery unit which comes along with 10W charging support. Thus, Poco M3 is the winner here by a country mile.
Poco M3’s 6 GB +64 GB storage option will come at a price tag of Rs 10,999. Its 6 GB + 128 GB variant will cost you Rs 11,999. Nokia 5.4’s 4GB + 64GB variant comes for Rs. 13,999 whereas 6GB + 64GB storage variant.
The Mobile processor is the same for both smartphones. Thus, it does not affect our choice. Nokia 5.4 offers slightly better shots with the aid of a 5 MP ultra-wide lens. But keeping that sensor aside, they are the same in optics as well. In terms of battery and display, Poco M3 leads the fight. Also, it is the cheaper device in both variants. Thus, it is Poco M3 that is taking a better position in this comparison. Though, do your own analysis and see which smartphone suits you better as every individual is different.
