POCO X3 Pro Review: The first Snapdragon 860 smartphone is surprisingly good

Portrait selfies are available but results aren’t as good, especially in terms of edge detection for hair and ears or eyeglasses. I believe the noise reduction algorithm is a bit too strong. And this results in a loss of detail especially evident in nighttime pictures.

To connect your Poco X3 Pro device to your PC, you need the drivers to be installed on your PC. These drivers include the fastboot & ADB drivers and Xiaomi drivers.

In Geekbench 5’s single-core and multi-core tests, the X3 Pro managed 752 and 1,892 points respectively. The 3DMark Wild Life graphics tests posted a score of 3,476, while GFXBench’s T-Rex and Car Chase scenes ran at 119fps and 39fps respectively. The Snapdragon 860 has eight CPU cores with one running at 2.96GHz, three at 2.42GHz and four more at 1.8GHz, and also features the Adreno 640 integrated GPU.

  • Still, the POCO X3 NFC is the best smartphone you can get for the price without a doubt.
  • To get everyone on the same page, response time is how quickly a pixel stock firmware ROM can switch from one shade of grey to another.
  • If you have any issues or queries, feel free to ask in the comments below.
  • Now, here comes the main step, unlocking the bootloader.
  • Don’t forget to add at least the Open GApps installer debug log and if experiencing Force Closures also include a logcat.

Colors are close to accurate and dynamic range is pretty wide. The 48MP camera churns out decent images in proper daylight. 108MP sensors are now available in the same budget, and for reference, we compared the output to that of the 108MP sensor on Xiaomi’s Mi10i. Overall the image texture and dynamic range were better on the Mi 10i in most samples we took. The powerful chipset is further paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage.

  • No phone under INR 20k is truly impressive when it comes to photography.
  • I bought this phone at the end of November and am happy with this device.
  • As this one comes with a big camera bump, the phone wobbles a lot when tapped on the upper-half portion of the screen from the sides.
  • As for battery life, the X3 Pro comes with a 5160mAh battery with 33W fast charging — the same as the X3 NFC.

Besides, since it can charge quite quickly, you won’t have to wait for too long. According to the advertised value, this phone can charge to 59% in 30 minutes and to 100% in one hour.
