Of the pair the X3 Pro is the larger device – and you can feel that in the hand for sure (we have one in for review). That’s down to the battery capacity, by and large, which is more capacious in the X3 Pro than the F3. The Poco X3 Pro is basically just an old phone with buffed-up internals. On the other hand, the Poco F3 is a rebranded Redmi K40. Interestingly though, the designs of both these phones are not new and they are borrowed from predecessors. The Poco F3 borrows its design from the Redmi K40, while the Poco X3 Pro uses the same design found on the regular Poco X3.
I bought it in 2021 in fall and until the poco launcher update it was an unpleasant experience. But thanks God that the POCO did the job to update the launcher. I\’m looking forward for more miui updates but for now it is great for it\’s price. I definitely recommend to someone who does care too much about the software but instead hardware.
- Out of the box, POCO X3 Pro comes with Android 11 Based MIUI 12.
- Even Bluetooth is limited to the older 5.0 standard – actually a downgrade from the Bluetooth 5.1 in the X3 NFC, and two generations behind the current 5.2 standard.
- Neither handset offers an in-display fingerprint scanner, as side-positioned scanners – doubling-up as the power button – seem to be increasingly becoming the norm.
Sure, the cameras aren’t on par with the regular X3 and the device misses out on 5G, but Xiaomi isn’t targeting those attributes with the POCO X3 Pro. This phone’s sole reason for existing is to deliver the best possible performance, and it manages to do just that. 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.
- If there is one fault we can list, it would be its availability, especially in markets where consumers still have to settle for the bigger and more expensive brands.
- The first thing that we are going to check out about the technical specifications of Poco X3 Pro is its size and weight.
- I don’t understand why phone manufacturers strap on a poor 3rd and 4th camera when the cost of them can be used on something else.
- So, you can download one of these ROM and install it on your smartphone.
- The main camera on the Poco X3 Pro is 48MP and uses the Sony IMX 582 Quad-Bayer 1/2″ sensor with 0.8µm pixels, 25mm f/1.8 lens.
For a good smartphone experience, it is important to know about the specs of a phone before you decide to buy it. However, the technical features of a smartphone is not the only thing that matters. Since you will be carrying your phone around most of the time, having a good-looking phone is important as well.
There’s some natural depth of field which always makes shots stand out nicely. In an interesting twist, Poco has gone with lower resolutions for the X3 Pro’s stock ROMs rear cameras than it did with the Poco X3. You get a 48-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide one, compared to 64 and 13 megapixels respectively on what is supposed to be a lower-end model in the same series. Of course, sensor and lens quality are much more important than resolution alone. It will be interesting to see how the Poco X3 Pro delivers, and whether people are willing to look beyond the usual “bigger is better” marketing message.
