But you should know that some phones in this price category come with 65W and they are faster. In my testing, the Poco X3 Pro offered outstanding battery life. With over 11+ hours of video playback time and 17+ hours when browsing the web, the battery life was exceptional.
- You’ll quickly detect the difference if you’ve previously used some other custom ROMs.
- While Mi phones are a more complete package and aimed at a much wider audience, Poco is aimed at enthusiasts on a budget.
- Download either the Fastboot or recovery firmware from the link(s) below and follow the recommended flashing instructions immediately after the download options.
- Xiaomi has decided to go with a flagship killer phone, that’s why they’ve launched this phone.
- Another reason is that custom rom enables mobile phones to run at total capacity and eliminate ads.
Pixel-binning and Night Mode, which can be turned on and off, are intended to improve the light yield in the dark. As the low-light test scene shows, the Xiaomi phone does indeed manage this quite well, but the camera can no longer extract that much image detail in that case. The equipment list of the Poco X3 Pro is quite impressive considering the starting price of 250 Euros (~$305) that Xiaomi has set for its mid-range smartphone. In terms of battery life, both phones can easily last a full day with moderate usage. But I did notice that the Poco X3 Pro offers slightly better battery life than the Poco M4 Pro 5G.
It’s possible to play up to an hour per day without worrying about how long it will last. The battery lost several percent more overnight, and it needed to be recharged by noon on the second day. The Poco X3 Pro will last for two days if it’s used less frequently.
- I had to disable battery optimization for Facebook Messenger yet again in order to receive message notifications, and UI elements are broken still in some places.
- It is a little bit difficult for beginners who are new to flashing.
- I am not a fan of aggressive branding on phones but your taste may vary.
- Starting with the Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G, the device has a sleek and modern design.
The modern-looking front panel with a front camera embedded in the center of the screen is complimented by a quite unique back plate of the smartphone. The app drawer automatically sorts apps into various categories, and you can easily change the order or delete these categories. The cameras on the X3 Pro don’t hold up against the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, and even the standard POCO X3 takes better photos in a few situations. Xiaomi isn’t positioning this phone as a camera-focused option, and that is evident in the resultant shots.
No phone under INR 20k is truly impressive when it comes to photography. The Poco X3 Pro might not be the best in the category stock firmware ROM and falls a tad behind Redmi Note 10 Pro and Realme 8 Pro.
