Poco X3 Pro Review 2022 Is it the Best Mid-Ranger? Xiaomi Review

It takes a bit of practice to get decent pictures with the ultrawide camera in Night Mode though, so there’s that. The 8MP ultrawide camera in daylight yields nice photos with good contrast and detail. However dynamic range is not as good as the main camera. The barrel effect is also minimal at the edges and corners. The Poco X3 Pro is available in two configurations – the review model is the base version with 6GB RAM/128GB of storage. There is another version with 8GB RAM /256GB storage for a bit more. In either version RAM is LPDDR4x and the storage is the UFS 3.1 type.

  • Moving on to the phone’s audio output, the onboard stereo speakers are loud enough for watching YouTube videos.
  • The 48MP camera churns out decent images in proper daylight.
  • The 6GB/128GB model costs ₹19,999 ($272), and you get a 120Hz AMOLED panel, much better 108MP camera, and original ROM a more premium design.
  • One of the reasons why Xiaomi mobiles have so many custom rom is that they officially allow it.
  • The Poco X3 Pro USB Driver is 100% safe for the Computer, laptop, and Poco device.
  • This phone’s sole reason for existing is to deliver the best possible performance, and it manages to do just that.

The X3 NFC was our favourite budget phone of 2020, and the Pro is a better phone in enough areas to make it an easy recommendation too.

  • CrDroid did not sacrifice some features to provide a stable Android experience; it comes with customizable features and proves efficient.
  • POCO X3 Pro is a quite noticeable phone with its unique and stylish design.
  • One difference I could find is that Poco UI doesn’t have the Google Discover feed to the left of the homescreen.

That said, the global version I’m using does have the feature, so this particular limitation is only for the Indian model. I have the Indian version of the POCO X3 — which includes a 6000mAh battery — and next to it the X3 Pro feels lighter and easier to use. The latter weighs 10g less, and that makes a significant difference in day-to-day use.

It won’t be fair to blame Poco for the omission because this is an industry-wide change that affects almost all upcoming phones. The software on the phone has a few peeve points, though. Google is now pushing OEMs to include the stock Google dialer and messaging app on its phones and the Google Dialer doesn’t have auto call recording. In fact, Poco X3 doesn’t have the option for regular call recording either but that can be added with an OTA update. Post the Android 9 Pie update, third-party apps are utterly useless in this regard. The fingerprint reader is on the side and it’s as snappy and reliable as we’d want it to be. The volume rocker above it isn’t as easily accessible, but we can still reach it out with fair ease.

Not only its of good quality but presence of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 also makes it well protected also. The standout features are the 6.67-inch screen with its 120Hz refresh rate and the Snapdragon 732G chipset, which delivers solid benchmark performance. Although the 5,160mAh battery seems to struggle with extended video playback, it should get many people through the day with capacity to spare, while fast charging support is another plus. The Poco X3 Pro also scores points with its 120 Hz IPS display, solid battery life, fast UFS 3.1 storage, and 48 MP main camera that shoots good photos in daylight. In addition, there are small but nice details like an IP53 certification, a 3.5 mm audio jack, NFC, an IR blaster, a notification LED, and stereo speakers.
