There is some degradation in image quality with 13MP wide-angle camera, but that is to be expected in this price segment. Poco X3 also supports Full HD content streaming on Netflix and Prime videos out of the box. The multimedia experience is however more enjoyable on AMOLED displays on Realme 7 Pro and Galaxy M31.
The one other quirk is unlikely to bother too many people. Xiaomi puts two color intensity modes in the Poco X3 Pro, Standard and Saturated. Both are ‘hotter’ than the traditional sRGB color standard, so there’s no true relaxed color mode here. But this is probably more a sign we spend too much time looking at phones than anything else.
I took a few pictures on this phone from both of the primary sensors to get a taste of what the POCO X3 Pro’s camera is like, and you can check out the album below. Given that the Snapdragon 860 is basically a more powerful 855+, then it stands to reason that this is still a pretty powerful chip. According to an Antutu benchmark, it scores just a little bit higher than the OnePlus 7 Pro, a fantastic device in its own right. It’s not going to go toe-to-toe against the likes of the Xiaomi Mi 11, but it will pack a punch that a modern-day mid-range smartphone still can’t quite achieve. The Adreno 640 GPU is still not found in mid-range chipsets and the 7nm production process aids in low-power high performance. The POCO X3 Pro marks the debut of a rather special chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 860.
- Of course in a vacuum, this is me playing armchair CEO but for the MSRP what you get on the Poco X3 Pro is probably one of the best LCD displays all around.
- The fingerprint sensor works well and is easy to find by touch alone.
- This application updates your phone’s firmware by downloading a new file directly from Xiaomi’s server.
- Just like with stills, the quality is ok for casual use but you can get better at this price level.
- You can swipe between Photo, Video, Portrait, and Pro modes.
However, these custom ROMs are usually buggy and might have some stability issues as well.

Favored by gamers and non-gamers alike for its snappy performance and outstanding price-to-power ratio, the POCO X3 GT is a budget-friendly smartphone for hardcore power users. Finally, when we compare the batteries of the devices, POCO X3 Pro comes with a 5160mAH battery with 33W fast charging support. POCO X4 Pro comes with a 5000mAH battery with 67W fast charging support. When we compare the batteries, our winner is the POCO X4 Pro, which stock ROMs has much better fast charging support. There’s nothing worse than running out of battery right when you need your device.
