Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro review: …

Poco has been making flagship smartphones for quite some time now at incredibly low prices. In 2020, they launched the Poco X3 NFC, which appealed to “power users” and those looking for a performance flagship for little money.

Last year, they introduced the Poco X3 Pro upgrade. How does it perform compared to its predecessor and remains one of the best phones in and out of its class?

Quick evaluation

If you are looking for a phone to play the best Android games or you are an advanced user who loves to test the limits of the best processors and graphics cores, then this is the phone for you. Poco X3 Pro has all the power you will need and at the same time it is one of the cheapest phones in the market. In return, you get a big, cumbersome phone with a rather annoying Poco logo on the back and a regular camera.


the price?

One of the best offers for Poco X3 Pro can be found on enaa.com. Currently, the 6GB/128GB version is available in black for €269.90, and you can also get a gift in the form of the Sports Kit Race Bluetooth Headset for €16.99.

design and shape

Poco has not been particularly focused on the design of the new Poco X3 Pro. In fact, compared to the X3 NFC, only the color gamut has changed. This means you get a large 6.67-inch screen and a fairly bulky phone, both in length and thickness (9.4mm), as well as one of the heaviest phones (215g) on ​​the market. The back is made of plastic, which isn’t surprising for a phone in this class, nor is it the biggest inconvenience. This honor belongs to the POCO logo extended below the phone.

As with the Poco X3 NFC, there is IP53 protection, which gives the phone decent protection against dust and water drops despite the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The screen of the phone is protected by Gorilla Glass 6, which is supposed to provide resistance to shocks and minor collisions. Stereo speakers with good max volume and good dynamic range are also available. If you’re not using headphones, the headphones will do their job of listening to music or podcasting. Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro also features an infrared blaster which is used by the Xi Remote app to act as a universal remote control.

On the right you’ll notice the standard volume and power buttons, which also hide a reliable and responsive fingerprint reader.

Monitor

In addition to the hardware, the screen is the strongest point of the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro. As said, it is a very large phone (6.67 inches or 16.76 cm). You will have to settle for the LCD, not the OLED. The screen supports a resolution of up to FHD+ or 2400 x 1800 pixels, a high refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch response of 240 Hz, which will appeal to anyone who spends a lot of time on the phone playing games. Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro has a built-in function of dynamic switching from 30Hz to 120Hz, which means that the screen can run a little slower if necessary to save battery.

The screen is bright and piercing to vivid colors. However, since it’s an LCD screen, you won’t get the great contrast or color depth that an OLED screen can offer, but in return you get a high refresh rate. It was a smart decision by Xiaomi, who understands what the target group of Poco X3 Pro phones require and need, which are mainly gamers and “professional users”. For the latter, performance is more important than screen color accuracy.
