In fact, POCO has put on the market one of the most desirable mid-range smartphones. The POCO X3 Pro has incredible attributes and today we explain 5 reasons to choose this model as your next smartphone, considering that it is in a price range between 200 and 250 €.
# 1 - POCO X3 Pro performance
The POCO X3 Pro comes equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor. According to Qualcomm itself, it is a 4G version of the Snapdragon 855+ and with new features adapted to the requirements of 2021, namely, with new features for the cameras.
Thus, considering the performance of the tops of the range launched in 2020 with the SD855 +, we can say that this model will also perform excellently. Compared to Qualcomm's Series 7 processors, it has far superior benchmark results. As an example, in AnTuTu, the SD720G has a score of 278324 and the SD860 of 491412.
The comparison with this SoC makes sense, because currently, smartphones equipped with the SD720G are available at similar prices (and in some cases, much higher) than those of the POCO X3 Pro.
Additionally, the POCO smartphone has two versions. One of them with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage and the other of 6 GB + 128 GB.
# 2 - Drums
The battery of the POCO X3 Pro has a capacity of 5160 mAh. In practical terms, according to the brand, it will be able to provide 11 hours of gameplay, 18 hours of video playback and 110 hours of music playback.
But more than the autonomy values, which are excellent, we must talk about the loading times. We are talking about a battery with fast charging technology, which charges a maximum of 33W. In just 1 hour it is possible to charge the 5160 mAh, but in 30 minutes it charges 59%.
# 3 - 120Hz refresh rate display
Although we are facing a smartphone with an LCD screen, we have an added advantage over most of the segment. The POCO X3 Pro offers an adaptive refresh rate that can reach 120Hz. Undoubtedly, the fluidity of a 120Hz screen is much greater than in a typical 60Hz model. For those who play a lot of smartphones or even simple scroll tasks in a social media feed, the experience is much better.
In addition, it offers a touch sampling rate of 240Hz, which is also an advantage for players. Still on the screen, it has 6.67 ″ and a FullHD + resolution. The glass has Gorilla Glass 6 protection.
# 4 - Four cameras at the rear
Although we have a configuration considered normal for today, we must consider that the 48 MP sensor that equips the new POCO offers very good results and framed with the range in which it is inserted.
This main sensor has a f / 1.8 aperture and is a wide angle. In addition to this, there is an 8 MP ultra wide-angle camera with f / 2.2 aperture and 119º angle.
Finally, we have the 2 MP cameras with f / 2.4 aperture. One has a depth lens to help capture photos with a blurred effect. The other is macro, for those photos with the most hidden details of an object.
The front camera is 20 MP, with f2.2 aperture. This camera records video at 1080p at 30 fps. The main camera is capable of recording at 4K at 30 fps or 1080p at 120/60/30 fps. Still in the field of video, it is important to highlight the possibility of recording with the front and rear camera at the same time, in order to have both perspectives.
# 5 - The sound of the POCO X3 Pro
Xiaomi continues to equip its mid-range smartphones with a 3.5 mm audio jack. Although many users have already surrendered to wireless and the solutions on the market are getting better, the truth is that many others still prefer to use the wired sound connection. Therefore, this detail must be seen as an added advantage.
But in the field of sound, this is not the only advantage. We have a smartphone with two speakers for stereo sound reproduction with Hi-Res Audio. The gaming experience or the simple act of watching a series or listening to a song improves a lot. In addition, there are top smartphones that have not yet bet on this issue.
And at what price?
Well, an obvious factor in choosing this smartphone is its price. We have to consider that today, in European warehouse, the POCO X3 Pro is available from 199 €. This is the price for the 6 GB version. The 8 GB one can be found for € 249.
In addition to the mentioned aspects, it is also necessary to mention that it is a smartphone with NFC, certified IP53, has a cooling system LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus and that is still an infrared emitter.
It can also be chosen in the colors Phantom Black, Frost Blue and Metal Bronze.
