Don't buy this phone. It has an issue with the PMIC hardware. I bought this last March 2021 and experienced the deadboot issue for the first time last August 2021. Phone won't turn on no matter which combination of buttons you press. Charging it didn't solve the problem too. After 16hrs, it miraculously turned on. After that, I never shut it down again except last September 9 when I had to restart the device because System UI and Chrome kept crashing and the camera wouldn't open. Unfortunately, even after almost two months, it wouldn't turn on again. A few times it did manage to flash the charging screen, but attempting to long press the power button would cause it to deadboot. Connecting it to a computer would show the device as QUSB:BULK along with other characters. If you're willing to lose your phone after 7 months or earlier, then buy it. Otherwise, don't waste your money on this.

I purchased total 5 mobiles in Dubai by online purchase. But now four phone is dead, company said battery problem, touch problem but how it is possible because 4 phone suddenly dead if 1 is ok, but 4 is not ok. Any way this is not suitable for more than 1 year its my opinion.

  • Your Poco is dead

After opening the phone, disconnecting the battery, then turning ..my phone turned on..but the second time my kid accidently turn it off..while it was charging..again I opened it disconnected the battery then turn on again. but this time it didn't work...Then I decided just to wait for the battery to drain. then plug the charger and if battery charging will display I plan to turn it on....but miraculously when my kid turned it on the next day..it turned on again...this is just weird...but this time I advised my family to never turn it off again..

This phone has weird demons. Overall, it works fine as in I have had no turning OFF or ON issues. But the both the comms, WiFi and Bluetooth are terrible.
While the WiFi connects with both 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz, it is only able to maintain a stable connection with the 2.4 GHz one. That too it randomly turns OFF after an hour or two.
The bluetooth does not work smoothly with the headset if you have the phone in your pocket which is a big shame.
Would not recommend to anyone.

Anyone else experiencing bricked phone, I am no expert. But after extensive search online for any possible solutions, I got my phone back to normal.

2 weeks ago, my phone was bricked. Turns out, when the update happened, the phone automatically restarted itself. The morning I have to use my phone, it won't turn on.. or rather it has no display at all. Tried connecting it to my computer using USB cord. It only shows "QLoader *blahblahblah*". I read that a possible solution is draining the battery. So I did. It worked.

So all you guys having problem with your Poco M3, drain the battery. Hold Volume Up + Power button. Then leave it for a few days or so. Then when it's drained, turn it on and try if it has display (mine displayed a drained battery.) I charged it, turned it on, and it works properly. But don't turn it off or restart your phone immediately. Copy your files, back it up, etc. Then soft reset your phone. You will be able to use it again.

If this doesn't work, there are multiple accounts online you can send a direct message to help you. But it'll cost you like $35 or more or less Php1700.

I guess I had to open it again , diconnect the battery then turn on and never to turn it off again.
