  7. Hi…I think I am dealing with a firmware bug.. if the phone’s battery drains out completely, the phone won’t charge no matter what therefore it won’t boot up either. Forcing reboot or factory reset using the volume and power buttons doesn’t work either. The phone is set to be auto deactivated late at night and it reactivates early in the morning.. That last feature it forces the phone to boot in the morning and only then charging and powering up is possible. Do you have any faster solution?? Otherwise the phone’s battery must not be left to be drained completely ever again… Thank you

  16. Hi,
    My poco acting strange lately. Sometimes the volume up button don’t work, sometimes the power button don’t work and sometimes the volume suddenly raised.

  17. I bought a poco m3 from an authorized seller last january 2021. As early as may poblems arise. Black screen. Last july, after 5 days I was able to charge phone. Start of august it became a dead set. Was replaced a charging ic from a local shop. Mind you if you bought this from an online shop, forget the warranty. IT IS NOT HONORED EVEN BY AUTHORIZED LOCAL RESELLER SHOPS. Then afterwards it was fixed. However I turned phone to reboot and it was a dead set again.
    Lesson – never buy this phone and never recommend this to anyone.
    The makers should have pulled out this model or even recalled it. I am a loyal xiaomi user. My family is currently using poco f1 (the best poco phone) redmi note 4x (my first xiaomi phone bought 2018 and still working), poco x3 nfc and my own redmi note 8. But poco m3 my worst nightmare. THE WORST POCO OR XIAOMI PHONE EVER.
    By the way, according to a local cellphone shop, poco m3 topped the list of phones being repaired.
    Thank you.

  18. Hello, I really regret buying the poco m3! When I bought the phone from a reputable place, it worked very well and brought up games well. I also took great care of this phone and downloaded applications from a reputable place, but after three months, Xiaomi He sent an update for this phone and I updated the phone and when it was updated, it worked fine for two weeks, which I noticed problems in this phone. 2.) The phone turned off suddenly (even if I turned off the phone myself, I could hardly turn it on again. 3. The phone slowed down. 4. The internet signal weakened. !!!!!! I have this phone now I went to a reputable repair shop to have it repaired, and if the phone still has a problem, I will sell it and buy a better phone. I recommend the Samsung a12 and the poco x3 pro. I do not recommend this phone at all. Buy ((and update it))!!

  19. I am having issues with the WiFi. It is always 1 bar unless I keep the phone beside the router. Any solution to that?

  20. I am having difficulty in my device because it been locked because I cannot remember my log in data. I bought this last October 2021, a week ago i encounter every time I open my messenger, google, FB, messages I cannot open it because this app lock, which I cannot remember the password. so I decided to make an account for MI, it was different log in information to my phone. How can I recover my account on the phone? It is possible to recover ? How? Please educate me regarding this.
