Poco X3 design

Poco has brought a new design for Poco X3, and it does not look like any Redmi model already in the market. Compared to the Poco X2 (preview), the new X3 loses the dual selfie camera and is instead the same, whose direction is located at the top of the smartphone. The Poxo hasn’t changed anything about the display though, and you still get a 6.67-inch panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. High budget refresh rates are slowly becoming normal, and if you play too much on your smartphone, you should be interested. The boundaries around the display are slim, but camera holes can be annoying for some people.

Pick up the device and you will notice that surprisingly it is very heavy. Typing the scales at 225 grams, this smartphone is also heavier than the Samsung Galaxy M51 (Review), which packs in a large 7,000 mAh battery. That said, Poco X3‘s weight is well balanced and unlikely to slip from your hands. However, after using the device for a while, you may feel a little tired.

Poco X3 specifications

Poco immediately followed his predecessor. After launching the X3, he happily expressed surprise. Poke made X2 was launched seven months ago and identified what was on offer. Not much has changed about the Poco formula. You still get a great Full + HD + display with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. This refresh rate does not change automatically, but allows you to choose between 60 Hz and 120 Hz. I always kept it up later, which helped Poco X3 provide a great visual experience. The panel also has a 240 Hz touch sampling rate and the X3 is quick to respond to your process.

There is a new processor under this hood, the Snapdragon 732G, which is architecturally similar to the Snapdragon 730G but has a slightly higher CPU as well as a GPU. The result should be better performance. The Poco X3 is offered in three configurations: 6 GB RAM with 64 GB storage, 6 GB RAM with 128 GB storage and 8 GB RAM with 128 GB storage. The price of these variants is Rs. 16,999, Rs 18,999 and Rs. I had an intermediate form for this review in 19,999 respectively.

Poco X3

While various international locations of Poco X3 get NFC, the Indian version is not in favor of a larger battery. We have a 6,000 mAh battery and support for 33W fast charging. The Pok stereo و mon X3 also comes with stereo speakers, and the smartphone is rated IP53 dust and water resistant.

The Pok runs و X3 runs with MIUI 12, runs on top of Android 10, and has lots of features. Many Bluetooth apps and games are already installed on the X3 and I would suggest you take some time and remove the ones you don’t need. Applications such as Theme and Get Apps (an alternative to the Play Store) kept pushing notifications, which was annoying, and I couldn’t install them.

Poco X3 performance

Poco X3 has such a powerful hardware to perform well, and I have no problem using it. The X3 is quick to load applications and games, and is capable of multi-tasking very easily. I love watching videos on Poco X3 because the display is good to watch and stereo speakers enhance the experience. The side-mounted fingerprint scanner is fast, and requires facial recognition to unlock the device.

Poco X3

For casual users, Poco X3 is more than enough, and it should also keep power users happy. I ran Anto on Poco X3 and it scored 280,030. He also scored 8,328 in PC Markwork 2.0. Poco X3 scored 567 and 1,777 in Jake Bench 5’s single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. It also manages 60fps in the GFX Bench T-Rex graphics test.

Gaming test

I made a call of duty test on Poco X3, and the device showed no signs of slowing down. Call of Duty runs smoothly at high settings with no problems. I played the game for 25 minutes and dropped the battery level to 7% on my smartphone.

Battery life

Battery life is good and Poco X3 will run you without any problems in a day. There is a bundle of 33W charger in support and Poxo box for fast charging. Using this, I can charge the smartphone up to 57% in 30 minutes and up to 92% in an hour.

Poco X3 camera

There are instant toggles for HDR as well as AI, which allow you to gain control from the smartphone during shooting. The camera UI has changed to MIUI 12 and is now easier to use. There is a new Vlog mode that includes background music and video effects during the shoot. This is new, and it can save you some time of editing by making it possible to upload videos directly to social media.

The close ones were good and Poco X3 managed to break away from the subject and background. It also has a profound effect on the background. The edge detection in the portrait was good and the X3 lets you set the blur level before taking a shot. The macro camera is limited to 2 megapixel resolution and lets you get closer to an article, but the output is strictly average.

Poco X3
Final opinion

Poco X3 is the successor to the Poco X2 and brings updates to market development. Which makes it slightly better than Poco X2. It provides better performance and a larger battery helps it run longer. If you are looking for a X2, but you have the option to spend a little more, you can go ahead with Poco X3 as it offers some nice upgrades for a slight increase in price. Realme 7 Pro is another suitable option that you can consider for the same amount.
