With a 6.67-inch screen and massive 5160mAh battery, the X3 Pro is one of the largest and heaviest phones in this category. It doesn’t feel unwieldy, but it isn’t conducive to one-handed use. Overall, MIUI 12 gets a lot right, and it is a delight to use on the POCO X3 Pro. I didn’t see any spam notifications during my usage, and the UI is well-optimized for the hardware. Xiaomi will deliver quarterly security updates and two platform updates, which is on par with the rest of the devices in this segment. The camera interface itself should be immediately familiar if you’ve used a Xiaomi phone in the past.
- I cranked up the refresh rate to 120Hz straightaway, and I have been using the phone at 120Hz only, but with adaptive brightness.
- It’s practically faster than the Pixel 4 XL, which itself is the most powerful Google-made smartphone and still a fantastic performer.
- Each has its own launcher, sure, but these ongoing notification issues are a needless irritation.
- Except long exposure shots, X3 Pro equaled it’s predecessor in every segment.
- Aimed at a specific niche that is focused entirely on performance, the POCO X3 Pro is an appealing option.
- Given the sheer amount of competition in the segment, POCO really should’ve focused a bit more on imaging rather than just diving deep into performance.
But if you want a slim phone with really good camera performance, then sorry my friend I won’t suggest POCO X3 Pro to you. As firmware files far as videos are concerned, POCO X3 Pro supports up to 4k 30fps from rear cameras. We also get super steady mode which is only available for the main lens. But things just don’t stop here as we also get more options like up to 960fps super slo-mo, VLOG Mode, and a dedicated short video mode, and Dual video mode as well. It also supports the Clone photo mode, and Long exposure mode for the camera enthusiasts out there. If a powerful processor is the only thing you want from your next smartphone, go ahead and grab the Poco X3 Pro. But, if you’re looking for an all-rounder, there are plenty of great options in the market such as Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and Realme 8 Pro (review).
However, users can choose between the two depending on their requirements and preferences. Poco X3 Pro has a more versatile camera configuration and is available at a lower price point, while Poco X4 Pro has a more powerful processor and faster charging capabilities.
- The 5160 mAh battery is more than good enough for daily usage.
- The phone was powered by Snapdragon 860, a high-end chipset from Qualcomm.
- Many more features are available on this custom ROM that you may not see on others.
- Some of them are official, and some of them are unofficial ROM.
With new fast charging technologies, your device charges quickly and you can continue your use from where you left off. When you have a high-performance device, you can have a much better gaming experience, and it is unlikely that you will encounter problems such as lag during interface transitions.
