The Poco X3 NFC is arguably a better-balanced phone than the X3 Pro, and as such it ranks among the best cheap phones. Camera quality counts for a lot, but this is yet another demonstration of the sheer value you get with a Poco-series Android. The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro has a much better processor than the Poco X3 NFC. This has to be one of the very best Fortnite/CoD/Insert Game Here phones you can get at the price. The POCO X3 Pro is a lot of things, but it’s not an all-rounder.
- On the other hand, ADB Driver (Android Debug Bridge Driver) can control your device via USB using a computer.
- As seen on similar comparison tests, though the gap in CPU performance continues to slim, older flagship chipsets still maintain a healthy advantage in terms of GPU.
- However, new generation devices generally do not have significant differences compared to previous generation devices.
- The company has provided a 3.5mm audio output jack, and with the help, you can use earphones or headphones on the phone.
- Tests are performed under a temperature of 25±1°C, relative humidity of 25%-75%, and an atmospheric pressure of 86 kPa to 106 kPa.
There is a big difference when switching over to 120Hz, but there is noticeable ghosting at times. Xiaomi offers plenty of customizability for the panel, and you can change the color balance, schedule dark mode, and use the text-focused reading mode.
The Poco X3 Pro is also surprisingly capable in low light situations as it offers a night mode too. The secondary 8 MP ultrawide sensor is also good for the occasional wide shots you might need it for. The Poco X3 Pro promises flagship-grade performance at a competitive price. While it largely delivers on that claim by packing in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 860 chip, its sustained performance (or lack of it) leaves a lot to be desired. The phone’s LCD screen is no match for OLED panels found on competing handsets, and the 120 Hz refresh rate implementation is a bit buggy. Another let-down is Poco’s lack of regard for ergonomics as well as aesthetics. As much I’m delighted to see a high-end processor at this price point, I can’t help but notice that the rest of the phone doesn’t match.
In proper daylight, the Poco X3 can keep the colors natural and retains details and texture fairly well. At times 7 Pro manages better details in shadows and in the backdrop and at times the Poco X3 retains better texture. The camera module and the stock firmware ROM back panel are quite distinctive. The bundled case cover can even out the camera hump, no worries. As for the materials used, there’s Gorilla Glass 6 on the front, a polycarbonate frame on the sides, and polycarbonate back panel.
And switching between 60Hz and 120Hz, an option here, shows there’s a real boost to Android menu scrolling at the higher refresh rate. Other notable features include an IR blaster at the top, as is the case with most Xiaomi phones. Along the bottom edge is a USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, as well as stereo speakers. They aren’t the loudest I’ve come across either but they’ll suffice in a pinch.
