POCO X3

POCO X2 FULL SPECIFICATION

This phone has the all-new Snapdragon 732G, as well as a big battery, plus a good camera, and what’s best, it has a 120Hz screen refresh rate to put the icing on the cake. Do you want to know what phone this is? Find out more on this blog.

You know guys, Poco tried to stage a comeback in the past few months with the Poco F2 Pro and Poco X2. To be honest with you, it’s a nice phone. It’s really nice.

Poco is known for their own realistic design, real original design, and this time around, the Poco F2 Pro plus the Poco X2, we’re just knock offs of the Redmi K30 Pro and the Redmi K30i respectively, but it’s really at the back designed by Poco, but at the Redmi part, it was designed by Redmi.

I wonder who’s who? Who designed whom? But, all I know it’s designed by Xiaomi.

POCO X3 DESIGN

Nevertheless, Poco X3 has its own design. It has a pretty weird camera design, to be honest with you. It looks like the die-cut CD back in the 90s, where everybody was so, “Wow! That’s a special kind of CD.”

CDs used to be around, but this one has a cut above and a cut below, making it look, well, a little bit different, a little bit special, a little bit rare.

And yeah, the Poco X3 was a bit different, probably it was inspired by that die-cut CD, and I heard the designer probably would be some old guy.

PROCESSOR

Let’s take a deeper dive into the specs of this phone. Poco is boasting that it has the all-new Snapdragon 732G processor inside the Poco X3, and it’s roughly 15% faster than that of the Snapdragon 720G, which is present in the Redmi Note 9 series.

I have tested this phone as my ‘daily driver’ for roughly almost a week now, and I can say the response is fast. Using this phone is really nice, and I’ve been trying to do some multitasking on this phone, and guess what, it just performed without a hitch.

BENCHMARK

Now, what are some of the basic indicators, to tell you that this phone is faster than that of the Snapdragon 720G?

Nonetheless, I can feel that the animation running inside the MIUI 12 for Poco, inside the Poco X3, is a lot smoother, a lot more buttery smooth and, the transition is a lot faster compared to the Note 9S and the Note 9 Pro. It is more evident that I will say, “I’ll pick this one over the one from the Note 9S.”

Since we are already talking about the benchmark, why not try to take a look at the benchmark on this phone?

Now, checking the score over at Geekbench it has 560 single-core points, and 1757 multi-core points, which is a little bit better than that of the 9S and the 9 pros.

BATTERY

Okay, everybody wants to know how big the battery inside this Poco X3 is. It has a 6000mAh battery which can support up to 33W of fast charging, and I’ve tried charging it using the supplied cable and the supplied charger, it has hit up to 33W based on my wattmeter, which is true enough based on what they have advertised.

POCO X3

Now, probably the next thing you ask, how long did this battery last? For almost a whole day, and I can tell you, it lasted me for 17 hours and 25 minutes based on the PCMark test.

I’ve set it under 50% manual brightness without auto-brightness, of course, and run the test for the whole night and the whole day. And the result is good. 17 and a half hours, it is something worth considering.

After playing with this phone for roughly a couple of days, I can say that I am yet to hit the charging dock for two days. Texting a little bit of social media, then a little bit of browsing, watching YouTube, playing little games, at the end of the day, I still roughly have 40% of battery left inside the tank, which is really
impressive.

Draining the battery down to 13% after a couple of days of usage, I can say the charging is not slow; it’s fast. Charging from 13% to 100%, using the default cable and the default charger took me just roughly 59 minutes. What’s the use of the power bank these days, if this phone can charge roughly in under an hour, from 13 to 100%?

And, of course, I don’t really recommend you draining the battery down to 0% before charging. The best practice is to charge it when it hits 20%. That’s my best advice to keep your battery in tip-top shape.

DISPLAY

The Poco X3 has a 6.67 inch IPS LCD FHD+ together with a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Of course, don’t forget the 120Hz screen refresh rate. Then it also has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which is pretty much scratch-resistant, and also aluminum frames.

Now, I’ve been trying to use the phone under direct sunlight, and I can see that it’s still very legible. Putting the screen under max brightness, I can still read everything on my phone.

Just a little bit darker; of course, changing it to AMOLED would be a bigger factor.

SPLASH RESISTANCE

This phone has an IP53 splash resistance rating.

CAMERA

The Poco X3 has a quad-camera setup, with the 64MP Sony IMX682 main sensor, together with a 13MP ultra-wide sensor, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor, coupled with a 20MP front camera.

120Hz REFRESH RATE TESTING

This phone has a 120Hz screen refresh rate, and what better way to test it out but to do it on gaming. I’m trying some games on the Poco X3, I can tell you that the screen is really very responsive. Having a 120Hz refresh rate does have its own perks.

You can see that on a 60Hz refresh rate, it’s somehow lagging, but on the 120Hz, you can see that it is very, very smooth. The transition is smooth, the movement is smooth.

REDMI NOTE 9S COMPARISION

And another very evident one that I can show you is, comparing the Redmi Note 9S and the Poco X3. With a 60Hz refresh rate on the Redmi Note 9s, plus a 120Hz screen refresh rate on the Poco X3.

Swiping left and right really is very evident. On 9s you can see somehow, it is a bit sluggish. And you can see on this one on the Poco X3, it’s so smooth; it’s so buttery smooth. I can say you can really tell the difference once you hold this phone.

LIQUID COOLING

Playing games like NBA 2020, and Call Of Duty as well as Hungry Shark, I can say, all of these games I did enjoy.

After playing certain games for roughly an hour and a half using the Poco X3, this phone has the new liquid cooling technology 1.0+, and the copper heatsink inside really dissipated it a bit better, probably then the Redmi Note 9s and the Redmi Note 9 Pro, I can say, it’s not that warm compared to the other phones.

SPEAKER

Now, when watching videos on this phone like YouTube, Netflix I can tell you that the dual stereo speakers on this phone, really, are firing out loud. The sound, really, is blowing my mind away.

PRICE

The price of 6GB RAM and 64 GB storage is priced at Rs. 16,999, 6GBRAM and 128 GB storage variant at Rs. 18,999 and 8GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant at Rs. 19,999.

Guys we’re done with the review of the Poco X3, and I’m excited about this phone. It really is something Poco has been trying to make a comeback, and I can see that this one probably is a big comeback for Poco inside the X3.

The price is good. The specs are good. The only downside that I can see on this phone is that it’s a bit thick but other than that, everything is on the upside. So, what are your thoughts? Comment on the comment section below.
