The main camera shoots pretty well for a mid-range smartphone. In the daytime there is detail, normal dynamic range and good colors. At the same time, there is practically no noise, but this is achieved by aggressive noise cancellation, which, among other things, deletes some small details. As for night shots, it is better to take them in dedicated night mode in order to get less digital noise and more information in dark areas.

poco x3 and poco x3 pro difference

The POCO X3 Pro scores higher in the CPU Throttle Test too than devices with the Snapdragon 765G. You’ll be able to play pretty much everything on offer on the Google Play Store, along with the ability to emulate a lot of past consoles and handhelds as well. It does have a 120Hz maximum refresh rate and 240Hz maximum touch sampling rate, as well as HDR10 support. There’s a fairly generous 5,160mAh battery and 33W fast charging, with a matching charger included in the box. Poco has used UFS 128GB of 3.1 storage and 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. In other countries, the higher-end variant has 256GB of storage, but market segmentation was seemingly calculated differently for India. Other specifications include dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5, GPS, stereo speakers, and high-res audio certification.

The Poco X3 Pro has a quad camera on its back with a 48MP primary, an 8MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor. However, the regular X3 model in 2020 had a 64MP main and a 13MP ultra-wide camera along with the two 2MP sensors. So at least on paper, this is a downgrade as far as the main cameras on the back go. Thankfully, there is no change to the front 20MP selfie camera.

Xiaomi hasn’t missed out on any of the essentials here, and that makes the phone a great overall package. The phone has Wi-Fi ac connectivity, and like the regular X3, the X3 Pro misses out on NFC in India. That said, the global version I’m using does have the feature, so this particular limitation is only for the Indian model. I have the Indian version of the POCO X3 — which includes a 6000mAh battery — and next to it the X3 Pro feels lighter and easier to use. The latter weighs 10g less, and that makes a significant difference in day-to-day use. Small mobile phones are now a rarity even in the middle class in 2022. The 33W adapter and a 3A-rated USB-C cable inside the box is a lifesaver.
