With a pixel density of almost 400 ppi, the display sharpness is sufficient. However, the panel’s colour reproduction, contrast ratio, and blacks are no match for OLED screens.
- It should be a no-brainer if you are looking for a new phone in this price category.
- POCO X4 Pro, on the other hand, comes with a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with 1080×2400 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sensitivity.
- It comes with a variety of bug fixes, security fixes, and a new visual design.
- The main camera performance is the sort of thing we used to see quite commonly in phones with Samsung sensors, a few years earlier.
- In an interesting twist, Poco has gone with lower resolutions for the X3 Pro’s rear cameras than it did with the Poco X3.
The camera interface itself should be immediately familiar if you’ve used a Xiaomi phone in the past. All the shooting modes are easily accessible, and you have toggles for HDR, flash, timer, AI, Google Lens, and switching between the various lenses. The macro mode sits behind the action overflow menu, and you can add shooting modes to the ribbon by heading to the More tab. The X3 Pro handles day-to-day tasks without breaking a sweat, and it lets you play the most demanding of Android games without any lag or slowdowns.
Despite being positioned as a semi-successor to the POCOphone F1 in some regions, the POCO X3 Pro isn’t packing the absolute best processor on the market. Instead, it bows to the realities of the current market by focusing on value, while still delivering on the promise of power. The Snapdragon 860 might not be the best in the business, but it is still a very powerful processor. A reheated version of the Snapdragon 855 Plus, the 7nm chipset has the exact same core configuration and graphics chip as the 855 Plus. For €229, the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC does a lot to help it stand out from the competition. Its weighty feeling in the hand and garish branding won’t be for everyone, though users will enjoy the excellent battery life and great screen.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max leads the way with a 108-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, a 5-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The Poco X3 follows with much smaller numbers in comparison – a 48-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 2-megapixel macro, and another 2-megapixel depth sensor. While the POCO X3 GT does focus on speed and performance above all else, it still delivers some decent functionality in other areas as well.
The IR blaster is still there on the top rail along with the headphone jack on the bottom. And yes, that reminded me about the haptics on this phone. At this budget, stock ROM I guess this the best experience with haptics on the phone, especially while typing. This is where Poco X3 Pro stands out in the crowd, among many smartphones priced under ₹20,000.
