The Poco X3 Pro features a quad camera setup at the back. It comprises a 48 MP main sensor accompanied by an 8 MP wide shooter, a 2 MP depth sensor and a 2 MP macro sensor. You can swipe between Photo, Video, Portrait, and Pro modes.
The phone has a 6.7-inch 60Hz AMOLED panel, and it features an Exynos 9825 chipset with plenty of stock ROM (firmware) power and a 64MP camera that takes great shots. The standout feature is the gargantuan 7000mAh battery with 25W fast charging. The F62 costs more at ₹23,999 ($325), but then again, you are getting a lot of phone here. On average, my smartphone lived on a single charge for 7-8 hours of active screen in 120 Hz mode.
- So, you have to get a custom recovery and then install the custom ROM with the recovery, Below, we have described how you can do that easily.
- Several Poco and Mi devices have already started receiving MIUI 13 based on Android 12 with some brand new features.
- The shots contain so much noise that it’s better to avoid using this camera at night.
- It seems to get a slight ‘turbo’ boost outdoors on bright days, but nothing close to flagship-like power.
- The software doesn’t quite connect in this format – we’ve had notification problems which irk – while the sheer physical size and weight mean other devices may hold added appeal.
- Besides, as Poco points out, better dimming solutions for IPS LCD panels as compared to PWM dimming on OLEDs should help reduce eye strain while gaming in a dark ambiance.
Other than these two things the rest of the hardware design is identical to that of the Poco X3 NFC. This means, the same camera module layout along with the snappy fingerprint scanner built into the power button. The IR blaster is still there on the top rail along with the headphone jack on the bottom. And yes, that reminded me about the haptics on this phone.
- With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 chipset, Poco X3 Pro will not disappoint in the performance department.
- Poco X3 has slightly better overall brightness than Realme 7 Pro but outdoor visibility is comparable on both of these devices.
- A 3.5mm headphone jack is on board, if you’re still using wired headphones.
- The stereo sound is loud and detailed, and it makes playing games or watching movies that much more enjoyable on the X3 Pro.
- It’s basically a Snapdragon 855++ (if that were to be a thing), making this a flagship-grade processor from just shy of two years ago.
In practice, the camera on the Poco X3 Pro is much better than the Poco X3 and I wouldn’t have settled for less because the price is more. This is not a bad thing for users who liked the Poco X3 design.
