Xiaomi isn’t positioning this phone as a camera-focused option, and that is evident in the resultant shots. An interesting addition on the X3 Pro is IP53 dust and water resistance. While that doesn’t mean you can submerge the phone, it is protected against dust ingress and sprays of water. It’s great to see Xiaomi add some level of ingress protection to its phones.

poco x3 pro is good or bad

The display produces good colors, as well as, it supports up to 84% NTSC Color Gamut. In our testing, I noticed a slight bleeding issue around the punch-hole, which can be observed with white background. The overall design looks similar to the Poco X3 with just minor changes in the Poco branding. The form factor is similar too, but this time Poco has worked on the weight and thickness, as X3 Pro is 9.4mm thick compared to 10.1mm on the X3.

One of the first things we did was to open up the ‘home’ settings, shrink the icons slightly and fit in more per page. A display this big deserved five columns of icons, not four. The cuts that Xiaomi made to accommodate a relatively high-end processor at a low price are felt most keenly in the Poco X3 Pro’s camera. It seems to get a slight ‘turbo’ boost outdoors on bright days, but nothing close to flagship-like power. All this really means is you don’t get the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro’s excellent Snapdragon 860 chipset for free.

  • By the time we are done, you will hopefully be able to decide if this is a phone you should buy.
  • 33W isn’t nearly best in class, and it takes almost an hour to fully charge the phone.
  • The Redmi Note 10 Pro features a 64MP camera and is otherwise identical to the Note 10 Pro Max, and it starts off at just ₹16,999 ($230).
  • On the back, the phone has a rectangular camera module on the top left corner housing three cameras and an LED flash.

In terms of performance, though, that means there’s little to nothing that’s going to bother this phone at all. I bought the phone for long-term use, at least for the next one and a half to two years. I know that at some point, I will get bored of the MIUI, and I would like to flash custom ROMs. Poco has an excellent track record in supporting developers.

  • Find teachers, administrators, support staff, and any education role in between with the go to place for more than 2 million education job seekers nationwide.
  • When we evaluate the cameras, we see that POCO X4 Pro has better sensors with high resolution and plenty of light compared to POCO X3 Pro.
  • Before that, Apple used to be an exclusive for sophisticated users.
  • It’s not a bad phone, but rather a niche phone that’ll appeal to frugal gamers, or those who want to pack processing heat on a budget.

108MP sensors are now available in the same budget, and for reference, we compared the output to that of the 108MP sensor on Xiaomi’s Mi10i. Overall the image texture and dynamic range were better on the Mi 10i in most samples we took. The powerful chipset is further paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage. If you are looking for an affordable phone for gaming, the Poco X3 Pro should be your best bet. Has produced a phone with a stunning display, innovative design, and excellent camera performance; the Galaxy S21 Ultra has serious competition. Depending on the version Stock Firmware, the Poco X3 Pro comes with 128 or 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage, with which the Xiaomi phone provides great performance.
