Plus, POCO X3 GT is built tough, with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus prevents most scratches and cracks.

“X series is one of POCO Global’s three available product series, and it’s gaining massive popularity.

POCO X3 GT introduces multiple POCO X-series firsts. Under the hood, POCO X3 GT is a beast that’s equipped with MediaTek’s flagship-level Dimensity 1100 5G chipset. Dimensity 1100 stands out to deliver a faster CPU and better connectivity. This is developed on the back of a 6nm chipset, the first POCO smartphone equipped with this power-efficient flagship process technology. Power up a favorite game and be blown away by the leap in speed and efficiency. POCO X3 GT operates on the latest four powerful Arm Cortex-A78 cores at up to 2.6GHz, and four Arm Cortex-A55 efficiency cores.

Plus, you’re well connected with an integrated 5G modem, dual SIM card slots, and WiFi 6 support.

Meanwhile, POCO X3 GT remains cool throughout thanks to LiquidCool Technology 2.0, the flagship-level liquid cooling that ensures long-lasting performance. To top this off, UFS 3.1’s blazing fast performance makes accessing and saving files lightning fast, so you can do more and do it faster. The first POCO phone to feature 67W Turbo Charging, charging from 0% to 100% in only 42 minutes, POCO X3 GT is designed to endure and react to the most demanding content. Its massive 5000mAh (typ) battery, keeps users powered all day, while its high-end display with flagship-level 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate makes POCO X3 GT highly responsive so users will never miss a beat. DynamicSwitch from 30Hz to 120Hz intelligently adjusts refresh rate to match the needs of each content, largely optimizing power consumption.

POCO X3 GT has been tested to perform reliably even in high temperatures, while its display is Corning Gorilla Glass Victus – a leading display material that’s highly resistant to drops and scratches and arriving for the first time in a POCO phone. To enhance user experience, POCO X3 GT comes with practical features users will enjoy day-to-day, such as multifunctional NFC and the flagship-level X-axis linear motor for a better haptic experience with every vibration of the device.

POCO X3 GT’s cutting-edge features come together and shine through its versatile 64MP triple camera, including a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide camera, and 2MP macro camera. With this setup, capture not just Pro Time-Lapse shots and select the best shots from a burst of photos with AI Shutters, but also shoot like a pro with ample video recording features that’ll empower users with tools to rival the look and feel achieved by professional vloggers. These include real-time bokeh video, while HDR video recording on both the front and rear cameras can capture a wide range of colors and depth. Once that perfect shot is recorded, one of 8 cinematic movie filters can be applied, or users can select from one of five vlog templates.

When viewing their favorite entertainment formats, users will be mesmerized by realistic stereo sound. Flagship-level dual speakers certified by Dolby Atmos offer an immersive audio-visual experience. POCO X3 GT has been freshly designed to showcase a more refined, premium look. The rounded edges and lightweight design, weighing only 193g with a thickness of 8.9mm, offers a comfortable grip. POCO X3 GT is available in three stylish colors- Stargaze Black provides a classic glossy finish, while Cloud White and Wave Blue give a dash of personality in contemporary design.

Marshall MA21 Electric Scooter Review: Convenience on Two Wheels

Published

on

The Marshall MA21 electric scooter carves a niche in the electric scooter market with its focus on portability and ease of use. In this review, let’s deep dive into the MA21’s features, performance, and overall value proposition to help you decide if it’s the right electric scooter for your needs.

First Impressions
Right out of the box, the MA21 strikes you with its compact size. Weighing in at just over 8kg, it’s incredibly lightweight, thanks to its aluminium frame. This makes carrying it on public transport, storing it under your desk, or throwing it in the trunk of your car a breeze. Folding the scooter is a one-step process, making it even more convenient for on-the-go situations.

Performance
The MA21 is equipped with a 24V/200W motor, which is suitable for flat terrains and gentle inclines up to 15 degrees. The MA21 can also support a maximum load of 90 kg. While it won’t win any speed races, it offers a comfortable cruising speed of 23km/hr, perfect for zipping around town or navigating a college campus.

The MA21 also offers a range of 12-15km, when fully charged. And it takes around 3 hours to charge the electric scooter from 0% to 100%. However, strong winds or steeper inclines can affect performance.

Ride Quality
Despite the solid 6-inch wheels, the MA21 offers a surprisingly smooth ride. The spring suspension in the front helps absorb bumps and cracks on paved surfaces. However, it’s important to manage your expectations – for rougher terrain, a scooter with pneumatic tires would be a better choice.

Safety Features
The MA21 comes equipped with a basic set of safety features. The front wheel features an electronic brake, while the rear wheel has a mechanical foot brake. These brakes provide adequate stopping power for the scooter’s speed. Headlights and a taillight ensure visibility in low-light conditions.

Verdict
The Marshall MA21 might not be the most feature-rich electric scooter on the market, but it excels in portability and ease of use. It’s a perfect choice for riders who prioritise a lightweight, convenient, and affordable way to navigate short distances in urban environments.

If you require a scooter for longer distances, or rough terrains, or crave additional features such as a display, you might want to consider alternatives that better suit your needs. However, if you’re looking for a no-frills, convenient, and fun way to get around for short commutes, leisure rides, or navigating a college campus, the Marshall MA21 is a strong contender.

Price: AED 1199
