It is the 2nd month of 2023, I have owned the phone for about 2-3 years and I am satisfied, standard use, playing games and movies and music is full excellent. I had to reconfigure the proximity sensor and the Themes app prevented the phone from ringing on an incoming call. The update to Miui 14 is lengthy, hopefully all users will see it soon. The POCO X3 Pro is a step up above the POCO X3 NFC that launched in the latter half of 2020, but it’s still more or less the same device with some slightly changed internals. Both devices look the same, and nobody could really blame you for mixing the two up. That doesn’t mean that it’s not worth picking up, but the devices are so similar that holding them side by side, it would be hard to tell them apart. It’s fast, it’s smooth, and the Snapdragon 860 can keep up with pretty much everything that you throw at it in a day-to-day sense.

For the retail price of $229 for the base version, there isn’t a better device available in terms of sheer hardware performance that can compete with the X3 Pro. There is zero absolutely no slowdown in playing games including the high refresh rate ones, watching videos, or doing any other daily task with this phone. The last few Xiaomi devices that came to me for review all have a high refresh rate AMOLED display. So getting the Poco X3 Pro with a high refresh rate LCD panel was a bit of a step back. The black color box cover gives way to a yellow box with a yellow Poco insert which is classic Poco branding. Inside the insert, we have a TPU case, SIM tool, and some paperwork.

  • Perhaps a software update in the future might make things better.
  • Moving on to hardware, the Poco X3 Pro boasts one of the most powerful chipsets in this price segment, the 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 860.
  • The four camera modules and LED flash sit within the rear camera enclosure, and the circular housing along with the two-tone finish give the phone a bold look.
  • That said, the 20-megapixel front-facing camera on the Poco X3 Pro captures more detail and produces more realistic colors as compared to the 16-megapixel shooter on the Redmi Note 10 Pro.

The Poco X3 Pro scores points with high viewing-angle stability, and it also performs well outdoors. However, due to the smartphone’s brightness potential that isn’t exactly ample, it’s best to use it in places in the shade. Content remains visible in direct sunlight, but it’s difficult to read. Xiaomi includes a 33-watt fast charger, a USB-C cable (Type-A to C), a SIM eject tool, a protective case, a user manual, and a warranty card with the Poco X3 Pro. The manufacturer doesn’t offer any special accessories for the smartphone.

Some functionalities might be compatible with other Xiaomi devices (Android one ones for example, or Blackshark). Some might work even with other brand devices, but this tool is not designed to do that, so please use it with Xiaomi devices. No smartwatches, TVs or any other type of device are supported. We always suggest, before the start, the flashing process you need to create a backup of your Android smartphone.
