The lower resolution and smaller sensor size are counteracted slightly by an improved f/1.8 aperture, and in daylight the results are honestly pretty great. There’s no optical image stabilisation (OIS), so you’ll get a touch of hand-shake, but colours really pop, and a 48Mp sensor is still enough to pack in tons of detail. This is an LCD panel, rather than OLED, with an FHD+ resolution of 2400×1080. It supports a 120Hz refresh rate however, and 240Hz touch response rate, both of which will hold immediate appeal for anyone who games a lot on their phone. The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is essentially an updated version of 2020’s excellent Poco X3 NFC. You want two-day battery life
- But I did notice that the Poco X3 Pro offers slightly better battery life than the Poco M4 Pro 5G.
- Xiaomi is reusing the design here, and the POCO X3 Pro doesn’t differ from the standard version on the design front.
- So, you can update your Xiaomi phone to the version you want.
The IPS LCD display has 120Hz smoothness and thanks to the massive 6000mAh battery users can relish the fluidity without any self-reproach. The Poco X3 dials down refresh rate and conserves battery in situations like when you wouldn’t need those extra frames – like when watching movies. The Redmi Note stock firmware ROM 10 Pro Max and Realme 8 Pro have a slimmer design and AMOLED displays, and slightly better camera performance. The Standard mode targets sRGB and the Saturated mode targets DCI-P3. The native Auto profile adjusts colors based on ambient lighting. It felt a tad too warm but we could easily fix it by choosing a cooler white point using the color temperature wheel. In true Poco fashion, the Poco X3 Pro is the most powerful smartphone in the segment by a mile, without any major corners being cut.
problems syncing, you can lower this to -j 3 or -j 2. On the other hand, -c makes repo to pull in only the current branch instead of all branches that are available on GitHub. I enjoy writing about my experiences, predominantly about Tech & Gadgetry. Binge watching Prime, Netflix & History TV are my hobbies.
Of the rest, they have slight differences in terms of dimensions, with the Poco X3 Pro being larger, but where they differ the most is in the weights. The former weighs 215 grams and the latter about 193 grams, which results in about 23 grams less in favour of the Poco X3 GT, which is why the latter is more comfortable in the hand. The X3 Pro is the first handset to offer Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 860 platform. This is almost identical to the last-gen 855+ – same number of cores, same clock speed, same graphics – but without an X50 modem and, therefore, it’s 4G/LTE only – no 5G. The Poco X3 Pro for the 6GB RAM +128GB storage option is priced at €249 (~$296), but you can expect an early-bird price of €199 (~$237). Its 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant will cost €299 (~$356), with an early-bird price of €249 (~$296). The Poco X3 Pro also comes with 6 or 8 GBs of LPDDRX RAM and 128 or 256 GBs of superfast UFS 3.1 storage.
Not to mention that the Snapdragon 860 is really rather powerful. It’s a lot like a rebaged Snapdragon 855+ from two years back – same eight cores, same clock speed (2.96GHz), same graphics chip – just minus the faster modem, as we said. 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.
