The back of the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is dressed up to look like dual-finish strips of matte and glossy glass. There’s a very large ‘Poco’ logo printed on the layer under the back cover. Buy one of these and you can’t help but advertise for the brand every time you leave the phone on a table. That’s for 6GB of RAM, but for just a little more money you can get a version with 8GB. Given the sheer amount of competition in the segment, POCO really should’ve focused a bit more on imaging rather than just diving deep into performance. It’s summer here in Delhi, the perfect litmus test for outdoor visibility.
- You can download the firmware for your device with the Recovery ROM or Fastboot ROM.
- Those are definitely big upgrades, but it still means that you’re effectively getting a very similar device if you go with the X3 Pro instead of the X3 NFC.
- Xiaomi fan, xiaomi scooter, Xiaomi phone, and even Xiaomi watch – Amazfit.
- Overseas, in other markets, this shouldn’t be a problem based on my experience with the Redmi Note 9T.
The IPS LCD screen supports an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate (240Hz touch sampling rate) and the standard 60Hz. For my review, I chose the higher refresh rate of course. Then there are a few other options you can tweak within the display settings which is very common for MIUI. Most people have talked about how good Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 860 is on Poco X3 Pro, but that’s not all. The POCO X3 Pro’s biggest achievement is its low price tag.
We dialed graphics down to ‘High’ for smoother performance. The phone has DRM L1 certification and HD streaming is supported on all relevant apps out of the box. The display is HDR compliant, but as is usually the case on affordable and mid-range phones, there isn’t enough contrast or dynamic range for HDR content to make a notable difference. The X3 Pro rehashes the smooth 120Hz IPS LCD display panel from the X3. Poco wanted to restrict the starting price to under 20k and to compromises on a high refresh rate would be an injustice to Snapdragon 860 and to the primary target audience of gamers.
- So, Pixel Experience is another good custom ROM you can get for Poco X3 Pro.
- For a good smartphone experience, it is important to know about the specs of a phone before you decide to buy it.
- Another significant difference between the two smartphones is their charging capabilities.
