Xiaomi poco x3 pro setup

Table of Contents

A Poco X3 NFC az átlagos képalkotó képességeket leszámítva valószínűleg minden igényt maradéktalanul kielégített, mindezt ráadásul százezer alatt és még olyan extrákra is tellett, mint a 3,5 milliméteres jack, az infra vezérlő, a sztereó hangszórópár, az értesítő LED (legyen akármilyen kicsi is ), a 120 Hz-es megjelenítő vagy a korrekt gyorstöltés. A Poco X3 Pro mindezt megtartotta, viszont kapott egy frissebb lapkakészletet, több és gyorsabb memóriát, illetve Gorilla Glass 6 védelmet a kijelzőre. És még a plasztik hátlapon ordító Poco feliratot is sikerült kicsit konszolidálni.

A készülék fizikailag teljesen megegyezik az alapmodellel, leszámítva, hogy a hátlapon két oldalt matt felület emeli ki a kamerapanelt és a visszafogottabb Poco feliratot, illetve a főkamera helyén egy 48 megapixeles szenzor ül, az ultraszéles pedig 8 megapixelre mérséklődött (aminek egyébként nem igazán van látható kovetkezmenye). Az IPS kijelző viszont maradt 6,67 hüvelyk 1080 x 2400 pixel felbontással, 60 vagy 120 Hz képfrissítéssel (a termékoldal szerint dinamikus, de sosem láttunk 90 Hz-et, 50-et meg főleg nem), HDR10 támogatással és 20 megapixeles szelfikamerának helyet adó lyukkal.

A sztereó hangzásba a beszédhangszóró segít be, ugyanitt felfedezhetünk egy gombostűfejnyi, fehér értesítő LED-et is. A jobb oldalon továbbra is megtaláljuk a bekapcsológombba épített ujjlenyomat-olvasót, a bal felső sarok közelében pedig a hybrid SIM tálcát, ami két, 4G hálózaton kapcsolódó nanoSIM-et vagy a másodlagos helyén fog agy microSD-t agy. A készülék még mindig nem kicsi, cserébe van benne egy 5160 mAh-s telep, a 33 wattos gyorstöltéshez pedig megfelelő adapter a dobozban egy adag matrica és az átlátszó szilikontok társaságában.

Lényegi változás tulajdonképpen az új lapkakészlet, az UFS 3.1-es szabványú belső tárhely és az Android 11-re épülő MIUI 12.5.1, ami a felhasználói élményt és a megjelenést tekintve pontosan ugyanolyan, mint a Poco X3 NFC Android 10 alapú rendszere. A MIUI továbbra is az egyik legrészletesebb körben testreszabható felhasználói felület, olyan trükkökkel, mint az alkalmazásváltó előnézeteinek elhomályosítása. A szerintünk érzékeny tartalmakat megjelenítő appok, például galéria, jegyzetek, email, de egyébként bármelyik alkalmazás előnézetét olvashatatlanná tehetjuk.

Van alkalmazásmenü, eltüntethetjük a kameralyukat, választhatunk rendszervezérlési módot, van dupla koppos ébresztés, egykezes mód, választható az új stílusú (mármint a MIUI szempontjából új, az iOS-ben évek óta ilyen) irányítóközpont és értesítőpanel, elérhető a lebegő ablakos megjelenítés, és az Android 11-gyel már hajlandó emelésre felébredni a zárolt képernyő, ami a 2D arcazonosítással nagyon gyorsan a főképernyőre visz, noha nem olyan biztonságos, mint a megfelelő helyre pakolt bekapcsológombyoba épányos-ujolenós.

Tényleg mindent testre lehet szabni, a képek metaadatait is törölhetjük, az opciók viszont néha ismétlődnek, illetve nem feltétlenül ott érhetők el, ahol a leglogikusabb lenne, de a rendszer ettől függetlenül összességében még mindig nem érződik trehány munkának, csak becsúszott néhány apró figyelmetlenség. Az előre telepített játékok viszont még mindig feleslegesek, nem úgy, mint a. a Netflix, a WPS Office vagy a gyári alkalmazáskínálat a nagyon kompetens számológéppel, a Gyors jegyzetek felületet kínáló Jegyzet appal, a remek fájlkezelővel és a Mi távirányítóval, ami az infra vezérlőt kezeli.

A MIUI 12.5-tel komolyabb teljesítményoptimalizálás is történt, illetve leginkább az történt, ami papíron 22%-kal visszafogottabb CPU terhelést és 15%-kal alacsonyabb fogyasztást jelent. Emellé a Poco X3 Pro friss szettet is kapott a 7 nanométeres Snapdragon 860 formájában, ami jelenleg a legújabb és legerősebb 4G-s megoldás a Qualcomm kínálatában, teljesítményben pedig valahol a Snapdragon 855 szintjén mozog valamivel jobb összteljesítménnyel és grafikus képességekkel, a 128 vagy 256 GB.OS belső tároló pedig 3.1-es szabványú lett.

Design Display

As you’ve no doubt already figured out by now: the Poco X3 Pro is a big and weighty phone. even more so than its spec sheet might have you think. No, 215g is hardly a lot when you’re weighing out pasta for dinner or something, but in a phone that you handle constantly it’s noticeably chonky. It’s far more than the Redmi Note 10 Pro, for example, which has almost exactly the same footprint.

The big scale comes, in part, from this Poco’s big screen. This 6.67-inch ‘DotDisplay’ panel is sourced from Samsung, complete with many of the current nice-to-haves in a phone. namely the 120Hz refresh rate to keep the visual experience smoother. The Full HD resolution. that’s 2400 x 1080 pixels. might not sound top of the line, but it’s really as much as you’ll need and doesn’t negatively affect fidelity.

Flip the phone around and the rear design has a kind-of retro look about it. Phone design moves on so rapidly year on year that, for whatever reason, the Poco X3 Pro just looks a bit ‘last year’. Maybe it’s the raised camera unit, housed within a black circle, that’s behind the times. The big look-at-me Poco logo emblazoned on the back is way bigger than necessary, too.

There are some nice touches though. A 3.5mm headphone jack is on board, if you’re still using wired headphones. And the side-mounted fingerprint scanner. which doubles up as the power button. is well placed for Rapid login. Or, by the wonders of face unlock, you can feed the X3 Pro your face and get a speedy unlock that way too.

In summary: the Poco X3 Pro is massive, in a kind of gawky way that’s not at the forefront of phone design. But then it’s also practical, if you’re looking for a large phone, thanks to that massive screen and massive battery combination. And, really, that’s the most important take-away factor.

Poco X3 Pro review: Is bigger better?

This phone is all about going big. Its got a big screen, big battery, and a low price point to give big appeal. But in some regards its a bit too big for its own boots. The software doesn’t quite connect. weve had notification problems which irk. while the sheer physical size and weight of this device mean other devices may hold greater appeal. Read full verdict

  • Qualcomm SD870 ensures smooth operation
  • No 5G cost/battery implication
  • Lasts for long innings per charge
  • Lush big-screen experience
  • Affordable price point expected
  • Its a big and heavy device. more than spec suggests
  • Design is somewhat bland
  • Cameras are the typical oversell
  • No 5G connectivity
  • Software has problems. especially with notifications

(-lint). The big ol’ beast upon which your eyes are affixed is the Poco X3 Pro: the Xiaomi offshoot’s sub-flagship device, here to tempt you with massive screen, massive battery, and not-so-massive price point.

Just a year after the Poco X2 launched, the X3 Pro isn’t exactly an unexpected surprise. But it does cut its own path: its the first device to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor, which is all-powerful (basically an 855 rebadged) but, crucially, drops any 5G modem. and, with that, any battery/cost implication that such connectivity could cause.

As such, the Poco X3 Pro is a fairly unique prospect. It’s not quite as flagship grade as the smaller Poco F3. which was announced the same day, here’s how the two compare. but as 4G/LTE handsets on a big scale go, it’s got a lot of weight behind it (both figuratively and literally speaking).

performance battery

There’s been heaps of chat about 5G over the last few years. For good reason, too, as it enables super-fast connectivity with low-latency. Except, it doesn’t if you can’t get a 5G singal. which, in the majority of places around the world, is often the case. Not to mention the elevated asking price of your monthly mobile subscription.

The Poco X3 Pro bypasses any 5G problem by, well, shunning the connectivity entirely. That, it seems, is much the point of using the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor. there’s no X50/X55 series modem attached within the platform, thus no 5G. But 4G/LTE connectivity is perfectly good enough and, without the concern over elevated costs or battery consumption, we think it’ll be lapped up by many consumers.

Not to mention that the Snapdragon 860 is really rather powerful. It’s a lot like a rebaged Snapdragon 855 from two years back. same eight cores, same clock speed (2.96GHz), same graphics chip. just minus the faster modem, as we said. In terms of performance, though, that means there’s little to nothing that’s going to bother this phone at all.

We’ve been living with the Poco X3 Pro as our own for a working week, digging into Zwift sessions (and Companion ones), playing South Park: Phone Destroyer, and generally milling about our suite of apps to browse, mail and watch videos. None of that has caused so much as a hiccup. It’s all a very smooth experience. often literally, thanks to the 120Hz display.

Having this double-speed refresh rate here makes a lot of sense as a more powerful processor can handle decent frame-rates in a variety of situations, from the user interface and software through to a myriad of apps, including games. Some makers have pushed faster refresh screens but then not paired a quite good enough processor to always make good on that hardware. the cheaper Moto G30 being one such example. but the Poco always delivers.

Without throttling battery saver features enabled, we’ve been cutting through 30 per cent of battery every 10 hours. That includes some casual gaming. It’s no surprise, really, as the Poco X3 Pro houses a 5,160mAh battery. which is massive by any measure. But a 30-hours-plus innings per charge would be no bother, making this one of those phones that’s close to being a two-dayer unless you’re really hammering out heavyweight apps a lot of the time.

There are some caveats to all this though. That comes down to Xiaomi’s MIUI software, which has a lot of detail when it comes to battery handling. By default every app is set to ‘Battery Saver’. so you’re likely going to need to manually move your key apps to ‘No Restrictions’ to ensure they continue to function better than not.

How’s the battery life?

Like the standard Poco X3, the Poco X3 Pro amazes with its battery life. Despite the more powerful processor and smaller battery, it shines when it comes to efficiency thanks to Xiaomi’s traditionally strong optimization. The 5,160mAh cell lasts a full day and more with ease. I regularly clocked over six hours of screen-on time from the phone with near-constant music streaming, a number of phone calls, text messages, and emails. With frugal use, you can easily expect two days of use from the phone.

When it comes time to charge the phone, the X3 Pro falters a bit. 33W isn’t nearly best in class, and it takes almost an hour to fully charge the phone. The Realme X7, in comparison, offers 50W charging. As you’d expect for the price, there’s no wireless charging support.

Poco X3 Pro review: Power packed, but no all-rounder

Mid-range competition in the smartphone industry is tough, and it’s not easy for any handset to stand out. This is an even bigger challenge when you are building upon the legacy of one of the most popular “value flagships” ever.

The Poco X3 Pro is a spiritual successor of sorts to the Pocophone F1 (or Poco F1 in India) — a smartphone that changed the value proposition through its high-end specs at a cutthroat price. However, the landscape has changed quite a bit since the days of the F1, both in terms of market demographics and price of components.

So, is the Poco X3 Pro and its performance FOCUS the way to go in the mid-range segment? That’s what we aim to find out in Android Authority‘s Poco X3 Pro review.

Does the Poco X3 Pro look good?

The Poco X3 Pro is, for the most part, a turbo-charged version of the regular Poco X3. As such, the design differences are minimal. The company has managed to slim down the bulky profile of the X3 by 1mm, but you can chalk that down to the smaller battery.

The boldly placed Poco logo at the back is definitely an acquired taste. A fingerprint-prone glossy strip in the middle is flanked by matte racing strips on either side. Up top is a rather large camera module that harkens back to the OnePlus 7T.

You’ll find a volume rocker and power button on the right side of the phone. The former has a slightly spongy feel to it that doesn’t instill confidence. The power button, on the other hand, doubles up as a fingerprint scanner. It’s perfectly responsive in day-to-day use, and it makes for a much better solution than a less reliable in-display fingerprint reader.

Other notable features include an IR blaster at the top, as is the case with most Xiaomi phones. Along the bottom edge is a USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, as well as stereo speakers. The speakers are well balanced but lack bass. They aren’t the loudest I’ve come across either but they’ll suffice in a pinch.

Moving onto the display, the 6.67-inch Full HD 120Hz panel is the same as on the Poco X3. Contrast levels on the panel are fantastic, though I would recommend switching to the standard sRGB color profile for accuracy.

It’s summer here in Delhi, the perfect litmus test for outdoor visibility. Pushed to the max, Poco X3 Pro’s screen is viewable outdoors, but it certainly isn’t an optimal experience. The Poco X3 did better here.

Finally, as you’d expect, black levels certainly aren’t as good as on an OLED display, but unless you watch a lot of video content on your phone, this really shouldn’t bother you.

The adaptive refresh rate goes all the way to 120Hz and scales well across the interface and apps. For better battery life, you can lock it down to 60Hz.

Overall, the Poco X3 Pro isn’t particularly exciting. It’s an iterative build on top of the standard Poco X3 with a few if any quality-of-life improvements. Sure, you get Gorilla Glass 6 over Gorilla Glass 5 on the X3, and the phone is slimmer, but that’s not nearly enough to make a lasting impression.

What do you need to know about the Poco X3 Pro

The Poco X3 Pro is available starting at £229, €269, and Rs. 18.999 (

260) in the UK, Europe, and India, respectively. This puts it squarely in the competitive mid-range segment in India and pushing into entry-level fare in the West. The phone is available in three color variants: Golden Bronze, Graphite Black, and Steel Blue.

In a sea of ​​similar devices, the X3 Pro is laser-focused on performance and there is a noticeable skew in the spec sheet towards that end. The Snapdragon 860 chipset powering the phone gives it a considerable leg-up over other phones in the segment.

Performance upgrades aside, changes between the standard Poco X3 and Poco X3 Pro are minimal. There’s Gorilla Glass 6 at the front this time around, as well as some curious changes in the camera configuration that we’ll address below.

Does the Poco X3 Pro have good cameras?

Here’s where things get interesting. Despite the moniker, the camera setup on the Poco X3 Pro is a noticeable downgrade over the Poco X3. Both the primary and ultra-wide sensors have been bumped down to 48MP and 8MP respectively, from the 64MP and 13MP sensors on the regular X3. While there might be some cost savings on Xiaomi’s end by switching to the much more common 48MP shooter, it doesn’t make a huge difference in the end results.

In fact, I found them in line with those from the Poco X3. Results still aren’t the most consistent. The lower resolution ultra-wide sensor also means you won’t have much headroom to crop and edit images.

Calibration is skewed towards oversaturation across the board, though photos do look nice enough for social media. The boosted colors are particularly noticeable in blues and reds. The default processing pushes sharpness and contrast levels a bit too much for my taste.

The 8MP ultra-wide camera has a similar color imbalance. Additionally, the lower resolution doesn’t leave you as much room to crop in.

Low-light and indoor imaging are the few areas where the Poco X3 Pro cameras do pretty well. There’s a good amount of control over noise, though the strong digital noise reduction is visible upon close inspection. The over-sharpening noticed in daylight shots is even more evident here.

Over on the front-facing camera, the 20MP sensor is capable enough, but the processing is a major letdown. Contrast levels are boosted to unnatural levels, and there is very significant sharpening and skin retouching. Elsewhere, the macro camera is functional but its 2MP resolution won’t let you do much with the images. Video recording tops off at 4K, 30fps. The quality is decent enough though the telltale signs of oversharpening persist.

Given the sheer amount of competition in the segment, Poco really should’ve focused a bit more on imaging rather than just diving deep into performance.

Is the performance any good?

Despite being positioned as a semi-successor to the Pocophone F1 in some regions, the Poco X3 Pro isn’t packing the absolute best processor on the market. Instead, it bows to the realities of the current market by focusing on value, while still delivering on the promise of power. The Snapdragon 860 might not be the best in the business, but it is still a very powerful processor. A reheated version of the Snapdragon 855 Plus, the 7nm chipset has the exact same core configuration and graphics chip as the 855 Plus. It remains just as capable today.

The interface is well optimized for the hardware, and the phone remained silky smooth throughout my time with it. The phone also excels at gaming with top titles like Call of Duty: Mobile running just fine with settings cranked up to the max. Genshin Impact runs well too, though you’ll have to turn down the resolution and some of the effects to get a solid 60fps. The phone didn’t heat up excessively in my experience.

Poco X3 Pro review

If you’ve seen the Poco X3 NFC, then you already know everything about the X3 Pro. those are visually identical. The Poco X3 NFC was the one to break the mold and show the first original Poco design, and that’s the one you’ll get with its Pro upgrade, too.

The phone’s build is business as usual. a large Gorilla Glass is keeping the screen safe, the rear panel is made of plastic and beautifully painted, and the glossy frame seems to be plastic, too. The whole thing has an official IP53 rating for dust and splash resistance. Do not mistake this with waterproofing; the Poco X3 Pro will probably not withstand a submersion.

The back panel with the camera arrangement is what made the Poco X3 differ from the Redmi phones. it was the first uniquely designed hardware making the Pocophone instantly recognizable among its peers. Just look at it!

The company opted for a somewhat flashy design, but it wanted it to be seen, and seen it shall be. The curved plastic has three distinct stripes. two matte and one glossy in-between. The shiny part is as wide as the camera setup and has this cool striped pattern, which in addition to housing the huge POCO logo, also reflects light in a cool way. The back is indeed unique, and while it can’t be everyone’s cup of tea, we believe some of the skeptics could grow to like it over a few weeks.

The camera setup is also peculiar. its island has the shape of a rectangle with curved sides. Then the whole thing sits within a dark gray circle. an odd, yet again likable accent. The setup is thick, and if the Poco X3 Pro is carried case-free, it will wobble on your desk or table.

Enough with the design, let’s take a closer peek around the sides of the phone now.

The 6.67″ IPS LCD screen is the most interesting thing at the front. It’s one of those premium panels with 120Hz refresh rate, a small cutout and the usual 1080 resolution. That’s the same screen we’ve seen on the Poco X3 NFC.

There is a flat Gorilla Glass 6 shielding the screen, which is one of the few upgrades over the Poco X3 NFC. the previous model relied on a Gorilla Glass 5 piece.

The bottom screen bezel is a bit larger than the rest, but we can’t really hold it against the Poco X3 Pro, given its affordable pricing. Plus, above the screen, you’ll find one thin grille hiding the earpiece/stereo speaker and a tiny white-only notification LED. The speaker seems to be as loud as the bottom one, which is nice.

There is no in-screen fingerprint scanner as the panel is not an OLED but LCD. The Poco X3 Pro has its reader put on the right side, mounted on the power key’s surface and ideally sitting underneath your thumb. This placement could be an issue for some, as you may get misreads while pulling the phone out of your We suggest changing the scanning trigger from Touch to Press in Settings, and all issues will be immediately resolved.

The right side also has the volume keys. The lone card tray is on the left, and it’s of the hybrid kind. you can replace one of the SIMs with a microSD card.

The top of the Poco X3 Pro has the IR blaster, one of the mics, and an additional hole for the top speaker. This way, you get louder sound with better quality.

Finally, the bottom packs the 3.5mm jack, the USB-C port, the mouthpiece, and the second stereo speaker.

The sides of the Poco X3 Pro

We’ve already mentioned the unique back and its camera setup. The sensor logic there is the same as on the Poco X3 NFC, but the two important cameras feature lower-res sensors now. The primary snapper is a 48MP one instead of 64MP, the ultrawide uses an 8MP eye instead of 13MP, while the depth sensor and the macro cam are unchanged. they are both 2MP. A single LED flash sits in the fifth and final cutout.

The Poco X3 Pro measures 165.3 x 76.8 x 9.4 mm and weighs 215 grams. a perfect replica of the Poco X3 NFC.

The X3 Pro isn’t that elegant, nor is it lightweight. the phone feels solid and well-built, with a good grip thanks to its plastic frame, even if it is glossy. Fingerprints and smudges are an issue for the frame and the back, so if you like to carry your phone without a case and care for its looks, we can see you cleaning it a couple of times every day.

The Poco X3 Pro is a pretty phone, and we appreciate the added ingress protection. It fits well in hand and in most s, but as we said. it isn’t the slimmest nor the most lightweight offer. But it can’t have flagship specs and such a larger battery and be as thin as a sheet, can it?

Appearance

Classic modern bandura. Well, who is not a bandura now?

Like most modern smartphones, Poco X3 Pro is quite beautiful. But this beauty will be visible only to those microorganisms that dared to settle under the cover. Of course, to operate such a device without a cover. more expensive for yourself. Still, he’s slippery.

Claimed to be dust and water resistant to IP53. Translated from technical into Russian, this means that dropping our Poco into the water is not worth it, but a light drizzle will most likely not hurt him. consoled, yes.

But there is good good news as well. There is an LED for notifications! Lurked on the top edge. Cute, just the way I like it. The only thing. it is recessed into the speaker slot, so it is far from visible from every angle.

POCO X3 Pro TOP Tips & Tricks!

The camera block, of course, sticks out of the case. And it sticks out a lot. But since it’s big, and tk. it is centered, the smartphone manages to lie quietly on the table and not wobble even without a case.

Three colors. Called “Black Phantom”, “Glittering Bronze” and “Blue-Blue Hoarfrost”.

Above the screen is a traditional speaker click. Right in it is the LED. To the left of the click, light and proximity sensors are hidden. under the speaker. small round cutout in the screen for the front camera.

On the back side. only an island of chambers. Four cameras and flash.

Upper edge. IR transmitter, microphone. Plus an extra hole for better sound. leads everything to the same top speaker.

Bottom edge. There is a 3.5 mm audio output, a Type-C connector, a microphone, a main loud speaker.

On the left side. standard card tray. Hybrid. You can install either two Nano-SIMs, or one SIM card and one Micro-SD memory card.

On the right side. power button with a built-in fingerprint scanner and a volume rocker button.

Brief conclusion

Poco X3 Pro. It’s a big, powerful, heavy smartphone. High performance, fast charging. A screen with a high refresh rate (although this frequency is of no use. A little bit). Well, the cameras. what cameras? Normal mid-level cameras, without pretensions to something more.

Poco X3 Pro is in our country on official sale. Official “white” on the day of publication of the review are ₽23990 (325) for the younger version of 6128 GB and ₽26990 (366) for the older version of 8256 GB.

However, in many large networks (Onlinetrade.ru, Citylink, etc.) X3 Pro can now be bought for four thousand cheaper. those. ₽19990 (271) and ₽22990 (311) respectively.

If you look in small shops. you can save an additional thousand and a half.

With AliExpress, everything is complicated now. It seems that the younger version was completely dismantled. I see the older one here for 279 (₽21200).

Equipment

Fast charger (33 W), Type-C lanyard, paperclip, case. The cover is very tight. And, which is useful, with very tangible sides sticking out above the screen. As you might guess, such bumpers seriously increase the chances of the front glass to survive falls.

Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro. Overview of a powerful smartphone, deprived of five-ji

The end of the year. time to deal with debt. The Poco X3 Pro review should have been released at least six months ago. But better late than very late. Fortunately, the smartphone is still actively sold. And, it seems, still has not lost its relevance.

Poco X3 Pro. heir and successor to the traditions of the Poco X3 NFC smartphone released six months before. And by the way, the X3 Pro also has an NFC module. But let’s not be too strict. Xiaomi has long been in trouble with the naming of smartphones, even with half a liter it’s not a fact that you’ll figure it out.

With these two smartphones, X3 NFC and X3 Pro, the guys from Xiaomi have made a very interesting reshuffle. They replaced the mid-range chipset from the X3 NFC with a much more powerful one. But instead they put less megapixel cameras. main and wide angle. And they released a newcomer for sale for about the same money. Choose the type. You that. performance or cameras?

Another curious thing. Poco X3 Pro. smartphone is unique. You could say it’s one of a kind. Because other smartphones based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 chipset simply do not exist. But in vain. Good chipset. Powerful, half a million points in AnTuTu is easily gaining. So what if there is no support for 5G networks? Their time in our geography still has not come yet.

By the way, correct me if I’m wrong. But after all, in my opinion, Snapdragon 860 is the most powerful chipset, which, in principle, does not support 5G networks. And, I have a suspicion that it will remain so (the most powerful) forever. Releasing such fast chips without 5G is now clearly considered a sign of bad taste.

Entrails (iron)

2021 Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 chipset. It is a light modification of the 2019 Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset. It’s good for everyone, only there is no support for 5G networks, as I already wrote. Sure half a million parrots in the latest version of AnTuTu. By modern standards, this is a “pre-flagship” result. Those. A smartphone cannot be a champion in terms of power, but it is quite capable of being among the winners.

In many reviews, you will read that one of the main drawbacks of the Poco X3 Pro is terrible throttling. Well, yes. If you take a special synthetic test and load the smartphone to the fullest, you can observe noticeable heating and a decrease in performance up to sixty percent of the maximum. So what? Still a lot of power. Plus, you can achieve this in real life. where? Well, in games. Here, for half an hour in Genshin Impact, the smartphone case heated up quite noticeably, up to forty degrees. Or even in yellow hot Africa, where the same forty degrees. this is the normal temperature in the shade. Well, in everyday life you will not suffer from a lack of productivity.

Memory. Good memory, fast. 6 or 8 GB of RAM and, respectively, 128 or 256 GB of permanent memory. Please note that there is support for memory cards, but in order to install Micro-SD, you will have to sacrifice a second SIM card. Again that stupid hybrid tray.

All standard smartphone sensors in place including COMPASS and gyroscope.

I have no complaints about unlocking methods. What a side fingerprint scanner, what an unlock on my pale northern face. everything works quickly and without problems.

Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro: review after half a year of merciless use of the smartphone. Finding all the pitfalls

For a long time I was looking for a smartphone that was equally good in terms of gaming and in terms of cameras. I was suspicious of smartphones from Xiaomi only because I was not used to their MIUI shell. As a result, I chose Realme for myself, and my brother Poco X3 Pro. I already talked about Realme recently, and just half a year of owning POCO has passed. At the same time, the smartphone has undergone several falls, as well as a rather careless attitude, but at the same time I managed to form my opinion about it, so to speak, from the height of experience. I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the conclusions that arose after a long possession of this smartphone. Is it worth considering it as an option for permanent use or take a closer look at competitors? All this from the point of view of a non-lover of MIUI OS.

Smartphone options

  • CPU: Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor, Adreno 640 GPU
  • Screen: 6.67 inch 2400x1080P FHD DotDisplay, 120Hz refresh rate

  • Others: WIFI, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, dual speakers, 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC
  • Network: Dual SIM Dual Standby (Nano SIM Slot x 1 Nano SIM Slot x 1 or Micro-SD Card Slot x 1) 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz; 3G: WCDMA B1/2/4/5/8; 4G: FDD LTE B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/20/28; 4G: TDD LTE B38/40/41(2535-2655MHz);

Equipment

The smartphone comes with a fast charger, a protective silicone case, instructions and a clip to access the SIM card tray.

The complete cover turned yellow after a month, but it performs its function.

Appearance

Externally, the smartphone would not particularly stand out against the background of many others, if not for its camera unit. It was probably created by a whole crowd of designers. At the very least, this is not often seen. It was placed at the top of the back cover and inscribed in a circle. And on the bottom of the back cover, POCO is written in a beautiful bright font. Particularly sensitive to the external health of the smartphone, I warn you, the phone has undergone several impressive external loads and slightly lost in beauty, but this does not diminish its functionality.

If you look closely from the sides, you will see a tray for installing sim cards on the left side. The phone is covered with a plastic frame with a chrome finish. The tray is combined, that is, we have to choose either 2 sim cards, or 1 sim card and a memory card.

On the second side, there is a very convenient fingerprint sensor and volume control buttons. The fingerprint sensor is mechanical, I’ll clarify, it’s not built into the display, but is made as a touch sensor on a mechanical on/off button. It is ergonomically correct. Works all 10 out of 10 clicks.

On top of the smartphone, everything is much more interesting than many competitors in terms of price. There is a traditional peephole for infrared control of equipment, two microphones for noise reduction. Usually there is just a microphone, but here is a complete carte blanche. Headphone hole on the bottom, TypeC connector for charging a smartphone, microphone and speaker holes.

Poco X3 Pro | Unboxing, Setup, Specs, Games, Camera and Review

In general, the smartphone does not look compact, it is quite massive in the hand. But the edges fit comfortably and in general there are no complaints.

The inscription on the back cover has a gradient iridescent sheen around the font frames. And the camera block is very original. This definitely does not bring advantages in ergonomics, but the smartphone becomes unambiguously recognizable.

The smartphone is equipped with a 6.67” IPS display. The selfie camera is located at the top center, and a grid of earpieces is visible above it. Below is a very small black frame. The display is protected by gorilla glass 6, which is proven to protect the smartphone from falls.

detailed and understandable can be viewed when the display is on. The frames are really quite small. Well, everyone can express their attitude to such an arrangement of the selfie camera for themselves. I do not see anything criminal in this, as well as negative. It’s just the way it is.

This is where the descriptive part of the appearance ends, we immediately proceed to operation.

Exploitation

I’ll start with the display. The display is not bad, even good, but no more. It does not lose in richness and saturation of colors even when viewed from the side. They are great to use indoors. It has an awesome frequency of 120Hz and the complete absence of PWM.

By the way, the touchscreen is quite responsive, it’s nice to use. 10 touches

But the euphoria ends when used outdoors in bright sunshine. Here, of course, there is not enough brightness, like an amole. Sometimes in direct sunlight you need to look closely. But in general, the display is not bad, a confident middling in the mass of IPS displays.

The smartphone, despite its rather large size, holds well in the hand and there is absolutely no feeling of a slippery case. You can use one hand, but in some cases you still need the help of a second hand. The edges of the case are rounded and do not cause discomfort. Well, in addition, I will say that when using the complete cover, in general, all pleasant sensations are hidden. The phone becomes voluminous and loses all the zest.

An excellent nuance for those who like to listen to sound from a smartphone is that the sound is stereo. There is no second full-fledged speaker here, but it is replaced by a conversational speaker. There is nothing particularly musical in the sound, it is just a little nicer than the mono options. There is a good opportunity to use a wired headset and even listen to the radio using the headset as an antenna. Unless, of course, it is still important to someone in this century.

The battery is good, it lasts for a full day of active use. If you use medium, then it is quite possible to stretch the battery life for two days. Charges up to 60 percent in 30 minutes Then it takes the same amount to charge up to 100 percent. There is no wireless charging. I don’t know why, but the tester, contrary to what was stated, sees only 4500 mAh, and I charged it with a 5V 2A charger without any fast charge protocols.

Of course, I will add some synthetic tests.

The smartphone runs under the MIUI Global 12.5.1 shell. Here are some screenshots from the OS.

Regarding my attitude to the OS from Xiaomi, I wrote in a previous review on Note10S.

On the X3Pro I did the same experience, all with the same ringtone file. Nothing has changed, MIUI shoals all no no yes pop up, along with advertising messages.

The main comparison factor is still the Antutu benchmark. And here the second inaccuracy of the declared is manifested, after the battery.

There are no complaints about testing, the smartphone is smart and scored a large number of parrots in this benchmark. But here the software gives us a processor not 860, it indicates it as Qualcom SM8150. and this is nothing more than 855. It is, of course, a minor misunderstanding, but not pleasant. I decided to check this fact, suddenly the software is lying. Downloaded CPU-Z

The difference between the processors is very small, if any. Here is the information from the editors of IXBT

Now you can turn to the Qualcomm website to clarify all the details. There you can see that Snapdragon 860 and 855 have one page, which already indicates a minimum of possible differences. Actually, the Qualcomm website does not indicate at all that they exist between platforms. Third-party sources talk about adding support for 16 GB of RAM and several new camera features, but these are probably only software differences that could be added to the Snapdragon 855 if necessary.

In the end, the Snapdragon 860 is simply a rebranding of the familiar Snapdragon 855, with its 7nm process technology, 4G support and optional 5G support with a separate modem, and still very decent performance. At least the popular Snapdragon 72x and 73x, as well as the Snapdragon 765G, are significantly less productive.

In particular, many smartphones in the price range of 200-300 euros are equipped with just the platforms mentioned above, while the new Poco X3 Pro offers Snapdragon 860.

Information from the news portal The new Snapdragon 860 SoC is just a copy of the Snapdragon 855, and that’s good. The platform will make inexpensive smartphones much faster (ixbt.com)

In general, I would like to say that there is no difference, but it would be more correct to state it. Looked in other reviews. There, too, the software sees the processor as 855

The smartphone fully supports NFC payment without any problems. I checked various cards, including virtual ones. Everything works like clockwork.

Since the gaming factor is not unimportant for a brother, we chose a gaming smartphone. And here the subject shows itself perfectly. It flies great in tanks at maximum settings at even 60 FPS. Also no problem in PUBG and Marvel Avengers race. I can definitely recommend the smartphone to those who want to play.

The smartphone also really liked the camera. I immediately began to check at the moment of focusing. I owned a Note10S and before it a Note7, they both had a problem with macro photography. Focus on the near frame did not want to become in any way, as a result, I had to first put my palm behind the object, aim Focus, and then remove my palm and until Focus did not react, press the shutter.

I thought maybe everything happened again in this smartphone. But what was my joy when I discovered the full and correct operation of autofocus. With this, macro shots are just on the level. The smartphone uses a 48MP Sony IMX582 (f/1.79) sensor. Further, an 8MP (f / 2.2) sensor is used as an ultra-wide-angle camera

I don’t see the point in using dedicated macro cameras when the main camera takes incredible macro shots. Just look at the crop from the photo. Just awesome camera work and detailed work.

The main shots are also good.

You can evaluate the work of digital zoom here

Plus, I’m just in love with Xiaomi’s smart eraser feature. Works exceptionally nice. It is clear that when I am alone, it overwrites noticeably, but if you need to remove a person from the background, the automation works perfectly

I liked the work and selfie camera 20 MP, ƒ / 2.2, fixed Focus, no flash

In general, the camera is not in vain so highlighted on the body, it is quite good.

I was also pleased with the stable operation of the smartphone as a navigator. He perfectly brought to the Crimea and back to the Arkhangelsk region. Without a single complaint. I didn’t get warm, I warned about events clearly and correctly

I can’t recommend the phone as a player, it has standard sound processing capabilities, since there is no dedicated DAC, but everything is fine with wireless sound. there is support for aptX and LDAC.

The smartphone is actively used, my brother likes it. It is pleasant to play on it, it is good to take pictures, it is smart, keeps stable connection, WI-FI and GPS positioning. From the photographs of the case, you can understand that it is not used very carefully, while it has already fallen several times. And strangely, the display is intact, not even scratches. So Gorilla 6 is working. I would like the display to be Amoled, and the case is not very convenient to use

And after the expiration of time, I can highlight all the highlights of owning Xiaomi Poco X3Pro 8/256

  • Nimble, thanks to a good processor and UFC3.1 memory chip, it flies and does not slow down even after six months with a heavy load of software
  • Has decent cameras. You can take good photos without straining, while autofocus works fine
  • 120Hz screen refresh rate, everything that happens on the display works smoothly and flawlessly, plus the absence of PWM pleases
  • Large amounts of memory
  • Good battery, enough for one active day.
  • NFC payment without complaints
  • Stable work in navigator mode.
  • Sturdy glass and body
  • Very controversial design (namely the camera unit)
  • Inaccuracy in the declared processor and how programs see it
  • According to measurements by the tester, the battery capacity is lower than the declared
  • IPS display is hard to see in bright sunlight
  • Body is not compact
  • There are jambs and advertising OS MIUI
  • Relatively slow charging
  • Combined card slot (imposed choice or 2 sim cards or 1 memory card and 1 sim card)

In general, at the current price, the smartphone has few competitors, especially considering the 120Hz display. It is very capable and is a decent smartphone today. In its direct competitors, I would write Realme GT Master Edition. The one is a little more compact, has Super Amoled, a nice design and instant charging. But in terms of performance, POCO is better.

I definitely recommend. For six months, the smartphone has shown itself to be smart, strong, with good cameras, not without jambs, but very competitively capable.

UPD. During the discussion with the respected 927535, it was revealed that people have a problem with the proximity sensor on this model. Updates do not solve the problem. Does anyone have a bad sensor. There is someone who is fine. So I can’t comment further on this. I’m just clarifying that this happens, judging by the reviews on 4pd. There is no problem in my particular instance. There are some solutions to this problem on YouTube, but this still needs to be checked.

Camera unit design Dark halo around the selfie camera Plastic case MiUi weight and bugs Camera

I managed to snatch a phone in Ukraine for 5500. For this money, of course, they don’t talk about the minuses, but I liked it. characteristics, fast, powerful, 120 Hz is available, many applications support this hertz. You can read about the pluses anywhere, I’ll go straight to the minuses, both obvious and revealed after buying the Block Cameras. this “porthole” is just awful. But thanks at least that the block is placed in the center and the phone does not stagger when lying on the table. Symmetry. our everything. But fortunately, most cases for the device hide the flaw and with them such a camera unit starts to look even like nothing. A dark halo around the selfie camera. it will be very problematic to show it in the photo, but it is in my model, I personally see it on a white background, but to be very conspicuous? no. Plastic case. in fact, of course, it doesn’t matter, by and large, but God, how does the whole phone vibrate when the speaker is working! Weight. heavy Miui. switched from pure android, a lot of new cool features, a bunch of everything you can customize, a cool new curtain “for iPhone”. But there are also bugs, I found two pieces. For example, I can’t turn off the sound for notifications for certain applications. The setting is simply not saved. I did not find an answer on the forums, no one helped. I dashed off a bug report, I hope xiaome will be fixed in the next. miui camera version. well, for the money the camera is quite normal, you can shoot if your arms are straight, in 75% of cases it is even better than the camera of the then competitor in the face of RN10NotePro. But the question remains why the camera has become in some moments WORSE than in last year’s Poco x3 model. From the game I tried only genshin. I ran in that second story city for about 5 minutes. I set everything to medium, FPS to 30. I did not hope for more when buying. The framerate seems to be stable, given how unoptimized it is in itself. The cover was taken from autofocus. looks good, the camera block is not such an ugly glass there is no normal phone. everything from other models, the whole screen does not fit fotkal on slippers.

The launch of Poco X3 Pro and Poco F3 has got me very excited, they should offer tremendous value and blazing fast performance. Read on to know how they fare against each other and which one would be better for you.

After having compared the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro vs Poco F3 based on various factors like design, performance, battery, display, function, features, price and much more; my team and I found out that:

The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is just a beefed-up version of the Poco X3 and the Poco F3 is Globally rebranded and the Redmi K40. While both phones have their pros/cons and are similar in price range, the Poco F3 is the clear winner with its better display and performance. It is even better than the Poco X3 Pro with regards to other technology such as connectivity.

Here we do up a good review of Poco X3 GT vs X3 Pro too!

POCO X3 GT Review

The POCO X3 GT is spec-for-spec the best bang for your buck if you’re looking for a budget smartphone that delivers flagship-like performance. Outfitted with the latest MediaTek Dimensity 1100 chipset, this smartphone runs like a buttery-smooth dream no matter what you throw at it. Games, videos, demanding productivity apps, and more run effortlessly smoothly thanks to the high-end, gaming-oriented SoC, and look and feel even better thanks to the display. The POCO X3 GT comes with an FHD IPS LCD display that runs at 120Hz with a really Smart adaptive refresh technology called DynamicSwitch which matches the refresh rate to the content you’re viewing. That’s a smoother user experience and better battery performance all in one go.

Speaking of battery, the POCO X3 GT comes with a large 5,000 mAh all-day battery that should get you through a whole day of intensive tasks – or even up to two days of normal use on a single charge. Plus, in case your battery does run low, topping up to full takes just 42 minutes thanks to the 67W fast charging capability.

While the POCO X3 GT does FOCUS on speed and performance above all else, it still delivers some decent functionality in other areas as well. You’re getting dual-5G SIM capabilities with NFC, and with its professionally-tuned JBL speaker system, the POCO X3 GT delivers exceptional stereo audio quality that’s punchy and robust. The camera system is fantastic for the price you pay. It’s a triple-camera system with a 64 mp main sensor that’s enhanced by AI to help you capture the best photos and videos in all kinds of conditions, all on an S429 smartphone – not to mention the wide array of camera features like Pro Time Lapse. Build quality on the POCO X3 GT is also amazing – you’re getting the same Gorilla Glass Victus protection – the most advanced smartphone glass to date – that you get on thousand-dollar flagships like the Mi 11 Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Of course, there are some compromises and some drawbacks to the budget-friendly POCO X3 GT, but depending on your specific needs, they’re nothing too major. We’re sad to see POCO drop micro SD support on the POCO X3 GT, but with up to 256GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage, we won’t complain. The front camera is nothing special, and the plastic back is a total fingerprint magnet, but that’s not enough to take our attention away from the flagship-level performance, high-end display, and overall capability that the POCO X3 GT has to offer.

POCO X3 GT Review

Xiaomi‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌X3‌ ‌Pro‌ ‌vs‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌F3

Design Build

The Poco X3 Pro and Poco F3 are phones that fall in different price categories and you can tell that from their design and build. But they do share some similarities. Check out Xiaomi‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌X3‌ ‌Pro‌ ‌vs‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌F3 comparison for all the details.

Both phones from the front have the same design language, they have a hole punch in the top center of the screen. They also have the same display size too, there’s not much to tell them apart if you look at them from the front side.

Interestingly though, the designs of both these phones are not new and they are borrowed from predecessors. The Poco F3 borrows its design from the Redmi K40, while the Poco X3 Pro uses the same design found on the regular Poco X3. The Poco F3, the costlier one looks better and feels like a well-refined design.

Another similarity is that both phones have the volume rocker and power button on the right side of the phone. And this is pretty much where the similarity ends in terms of design for these newly launched phones.

Once you flip them over, you will notice that these are two different phones as they look completely different from the back. And the most visually noticeable difference is the camera island and Poco branding.

The Poco X3 Pro has a circular camera island that houses 4 sensors. On the other hand, the Poco F3 has a triple camera setup with the lens residing under an oval-shaped glass similar to Mi 11. It is also placed towards the top left corner compared to the top center positioning on the Poco X3 Pro.

The Poco X3 Pro also has an obnoxiously large POCO branding on the bottom of the phone. I am not a fan of aggressive branding on phones but your taste may vary. Poco X3 Pro also uses two shades of color while the Poco F3 uses a single color.

All things considered, I like the design of the Poco F3 better as it is cleaner and more minimalistic. The aggressive Poco branding and two-tone color on the back of Poco X3 Pro aren’t helping in my opinion. The Poco F3 has a much more premium look to it as it is also the costlier of the two.

display

Both the Poco X3 Pro and Poco F3 have displays of the same size and resolution. So, you may not be wrong to think that they are the same displays, but in reality, they are not.

The Poco F3 being the more premium model comes with a 6.67-inch FHD AMOLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. The AMOLED screen is the same found on the Redmi K40. Poco F3’s display also features a 360Hz touch sampling rate and a peak brightness of 1300 nits. Check out Xiaomi‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌X3‌ ‌Pro‌ ‌vs‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌F3 comparison for all the details.

In comparison, the Poco X3 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch FHD display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is also an LCD display and maxes out at only 450 nits of brightness. The touch sampling rate is also lower at 240Hz, which is still plenty fast. This is also the same display found on the regular Poco X3 but maxes out at a lower brightness level which is a bummer since it costs more.

Since I have tested both the Redmi K40 and Poco X3, I can safely say that the Poco F3 will have a significantly better display. The AMOLED on the Poco F3 screen will be brighter, more vivid, and faster. Don’t get me wrong, Poco X3 Pro’s display is also great but only for the price, while the Poco F3 display will take the fight to much costlier phones.

internals

The Poco X3 Pro is basically just an old phone with buffed-up internals. On the other hand, the Poco F3 is a rebranded Redmi K40. Check out Xiaomi‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌X3‌ ‌Pro‌ ‌vs‌ ‌Poco‌ ‌F3 comparison for all the details.

The Poco X3 Pro comes with a significant upgrade as it uses the newly launched Snapdragon 860. It is so much better compared to the Snapdragon 732G found on the non-pro model. The Snapdragon 860 is not a brand-new processor, it is a higher binned Snapdragon 855. This allows it to clock higher making it faster than the Snapdragon 855.

The Poco X3 Pro also comes with 6 or 8 GBs of LPDDRX RAM and 128 or 256 GBs of superfast UFS 3.1 storage. While the Poco F3 comes with faster 6 or 8 GBs of LPDDR5 RAM with the same 128 or 256 GBs of UFS 3.1 storage.

The Poco F3 on the other hand comes with a Snapdragon 870, the same one found in the Redmi K40 and Motorola Edge S. The Snapdragon 870 is a higher binned Snapdragon 865, making it reach higher clocks. This makes it quite a bit faster and makes it the second-fastest processor for Android phones.

I am more excited for the Poco X3 Pro as it is the first phone Snapdragon 860 and it comes in at just 250 dollars making it an amazing value. I have tested the Snapdragon 870 on the Redmi K40 and it’s an impressive chip too. Both Poco X3 Pro and Poco F3 come with probably the best internal hardware for their price.

camera

The camera setup for these phones is different, with the Poco X3 Pro sporting a quad-camera setup while the Poco F3 houses a triple camera setup.

The Poco X3 Pro comes with a primary 48 MP sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2 MP macro lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. It comes with a 20 MP selfie camera too. This setup is different from the regular Poco X3 and performs better too from my testing so that’s great news.

The Poco F3 sports a 48 MP main sensor and an 8 MP ultra-wide sensor which are the same ones found on the X3 Pro. The Poco F3 also features a 5 MP telemacro lens, which in my opinion is better than the 2 MP macro and 2 MP depth sensors on the Poco X3 Pro. The selfie camera is a 20 MP lens but it’s not the same as the Poco X3 Pro.

Both phones have the same primary and secondary camera lenses but I expect the Poco F3 to perform better since it has a better processor with a better image processing system.

Battery

Xiaomi phones are expected to have large batteries especially on budget and mid-range phones. Both of these phones have large batteries so we can expect good battery life.

The Poco X3 Pro edges out the Poco F3 with a better battery setup as it comes with a 5160mAh battery compared to the 4520mAh battery on Poco F3. Both phones support 33W fast charging so that puts them on the same level in terms of charging speeds.

I am betting the Poco X3 Pro to last a bit longer than the Poco F3 when it comes to battery life.

Final Thoughts

Xiaomi has struck again by offering top-of-the-line specs for affordable under their Poco sub-brand. Both these phones should offer excellent value and super-fast performance.

Along with the blazing-fast processors, you are getting beautiful high refresh rate screens, large batteries, features like dual speakers, and more. If you are limited by budget, the Poco X3 Pro should be excellent for you, but I would advise you to go for the Poco F3 just for the screen and extra performance.

The Poco X3 Pro is beefed up Poco X3 while the Poco F3 is a rebranded Redmi K40 for the global market.

Precautionary measures

Before going through the bootloader unlocking guide, there are a number of dangers that the operation poses to be aware of. Firstly, after its implementation, Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is automatically removed from the warranty, as in the case of obtaining ROOT rights.

Secondly, system components after the lock is released are more susceptible to all kinds of threats. Finally, an unlocked phone can easily be restored by an intruder who stole or found the device on the street.

To begin with, it is worth dwelling in more detail on the bootloader itself. Bootloader is the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro engineering menu, functionally reminiscent of the BIOS on a computer. It allows you to carry out deep manipulations with your smartphone, and not just factory reset.

By default, the bootloader on the phone is locked. This is done so that a novice user does not make a fatal error when editing the device core and does not turn Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro into a brick. At the same time, unlocking the bootloader gives the smartphone owner the following benefits:

  • the ability to install custom firmware;
  • obtaining root rights for extended access to the device;
  • installing mods and patches on the current version of the OS.

In a word, unlocking the bootloader gives the user a lot of opportunities, but only experienced users can fully appreciate them. If you are one of them, it is recommended that you read the detailed instructions that allow you to unlock the bootloader.

Bootloader unlock

After reviewing the input data, you can proceed to the procedure itself. It consists of three stages, each of which needs unquestioning execution by the user.

Status check

First you need to understand if your Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is really blocked by booatloader. After all, it is possible that you purchased the device with your hands, and the previous owner already performed the appropriate manipulations.

The check is carried out by direct interaction of the phone with the computer. And the instruction looks like this:

    and unzip the ADB and Fastboot debug bridge package on your PC. and install the driver to interact with your smartphone using the official Android website.

In the information that the command line displays, the user should be interested in the “Device unlocked” item. If the value “false” is displayed opposite it, it means that the bootloader is locked. If “true”, then the bootloader was unlocked earlier.

Sending an application

To unlock the bootloader on Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro, you need to send a corresponding request to the manufacturer:

  • Open the official website of the firmware developer.
  • On the unlock page, click the “Unlock now” button.
  • Log in to your account (created when you first set up your phone), and also indicate the reason for unlocking (for example, the need for a flashing).
  • Confirm ownership of the device using the code from the response SMS message.

How to Initially Set Up POCO X3 Pro – First Activation & Configure

Then you will have to wait for the moment when the manufacturer approves the application, and you can use all the functionality of the loader.

Approval of the application and removal of blocking

To see if you managed to convince the manufacturer to unlock the bootloader on Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro, open the application page. If approved, a confirmation will be displayed on it.

Now the user is prompted to download software to unlock the bootloader. It installs on PC.

Next, you need to open the settings of the phone, and then in the “For developers” section, select the item “Factory unlock”.

In the “Status” you need to go through authorization in the account that was indicated on the manufacturer’s website.

Now put your phone in fastboot mode and run the downloaded software on your computer.

After passing authorization, you need to connect your smartphone to the PC and confirm the unlock.

After a couple of minutes, the operation will end and the bootloader on Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro will be completely unlocked.

One of the most technically advanced Onyx Boox models of 2021: a high-resolution touch screen, Android 10, a powerful processor, 3 GB of RAM. everything you need for comfortable work

The smartphone itself is large and heavy. In summer, it will be inconvenient to carry it.

Total: the design is strongly for an amateur, it is comfortable to use, but the body is thick and heavy.

Screen

Finally, we stopped at the growth of display diagonals in smartphones. The average is now 6.5 inches. In this case, we are dealing with a 6.67-inch screen with a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels.

The most amazing thing is that Poco X3 Pro is equipped with an IPS matrix. For some time I was an adherent of IPS, but now OLED / AMOLED / SuperAMOLED began to be done with high quality: PWM is eliminated, “pentile” is almost invisible, saturation can be adjusted.

The brightness of the matrix is ​​​​about 420 cd / m2, which is quite normal. But in the light the display fades, the information is almost unreadable.

See also  Xiaomi power bank 20800 how to distinguish a fake

Of note. the refresh rate of the matrix 120 Hz! This is a significant plus, because of which it is worth considering the Poco X3 Pro for purchase.

Total: the color reproduction is so-so, the brightness is average, there is no AOD, but there is a frequency of 120 Hz, which increases the smoothness of the animation.

Working hours

As I understand it, they tried to make the Poco X3 Pro model as pumped as possible from all points of view. Therefore, here we see a 5160 mAh battery. Yes, and a power adapter as much as 33 W!

In my operating conditions, Poco worked for two days and at the same time gave out up to 8 hours of screen glow at automatic brightness and at a screen refresh rate of 120 Hz. However, the price for such pleasure is almost 10 mm case thickness and 220 grams of weight.

Communication features

Xiaomi does not give up under the onslaught of new data transfer technologies, so they still insert IR transmitters into their smartphones. Probably someone will come in handy. Naturally, NFC is available.

There is no fifth generation network here. Everything else is standard: Wi-Fi dual band, Bluetooth version 5.0, support for GLONASS and other services.

The quality of signal reception does not raise questions.

cameras

The Poco X3 Pro has a typical budget set of sensors: the main camera, “wide” and what most users do not use. macro and depth of field.

The main camera shoots quite well. Daytime shots have good dynamic range and sharpness. At night, I already have to put up with a decrease in detail, although I like the white balance and the overall picture.

The wide angle lens is weak. Here and soap, and weak sharpness at the edges, and a narrow dynamic range.

Week with Poco X3 Pro

This week I got my hands on perhaps the most affordable smartphone with a Snapdragon 860 processor and a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Let me remind you that the Poco X3 Pro model is now on sale from 24,000 rubles, depending on the amount of memory. I would immediately advise buying 8/256 GB for 27,000 rubles.

In my opinion, the device turned out to be ambiguous, in fact, like many Xiaomi gadgets. However, it is almost impossible to do inexpensively and 100% qualitatively.

Appearance

I won’t talk about the front panel, everything is clear here: the entire frontal area is occupied by a screen with smooth edges and a small cutout for the camera in the upper part.

The back cover is designed strangely: in the center there is a glossy area with a texture in the form of stripes, and on the sides there is a matte plastic that plays a little in the light. On the glossy stripe there is the inscription POCO. You would think that most people know about this brand. This is not an apple for you to draw.

The camera module is, to put it mildly, dumb: large, angular and protrudes strongly from the case. Dust particles constantly “hang out” near it, which are difficult to clean out from there.

At Rs 22,990, the Poco X3 Pro looks like a very tempting offer

Performance

In terms of hardware, everything is very good here: Qualcomm Snapdragon 860, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. You can buy the 8/256 GB version. According to the tests, the memory is very fast.

However, all this miracle is crossed out by constant microlags and brakes. I don’t know what this is about, but it seems that you are not using a Snapdragon 860 with 6 GB of RAM, but a Snapdragon 4xx with 4 GB of RAM.

How it manifests itself: you click on the application, but it may not immediately respond; you minimize the program. and it can freeze again for a split second. During the installation of applications, the device turns into a wild brake, as if it does not have enough RAM.

It seems to me that the problem is in the operating system. Well, a smartphone on Snap 860 and with 6 GB of RAM cannot slow down

Another thing that was a little annoying: by default, in some programs, the sound is turned off. To turn it on, you need to go into the settings, select all the programs and look for the necessary “app”. And already in it turn on sound alerts. This problem is present in all Xiaomi smartphones.

Impressions

Of course, for its 24,000 rubles from a technical point of view, the Poco X3 Pro is very interesting. But I would still eliminate some obsessive glitches in the software. Many bugs have been wandering from one OS version to another for several years.

The Poco X3 Pro comes with a 33W power adapter, a 3A USB Type-C charging cable, a transparent silicone case, and Poco stickers. A nice feature of the case is a plug for the USB Type-C port. Thanks to it, dust and moisture will not get into the connector. Branded stickers from Poco can be pasted on the table, monitor and any other items.

Visually, the Pro version is practically no different from its predecessor, the Poco X3. Buying Poco X3 Pro, you will see the same original and striking design. The display is covered with protective glass Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The back panel is made of plastic. The device has protection against dust and moisture according to the IP53 standard. However, the smartphone is unlikely to withstand complete immersion in water.

Three stripes are visible on the back cover: two side stripes with a matte finish and one glossy in the middle. The main camera module is made in the form of a rectangle with rounded sides, placed in a round decorative element.

The fingerprint scanner is located on the side. There is a tray for one SIM card and a microSD memory card. At the top of the case is an infrared port, and at the bottom. a USB Type-C port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Display, camera and sound settings

The smartphone is equipped with a 6.67-inch IPS display. Its refresh rate reaches 120Hz and the touch sampling rate is 240Hz. The user can change the frame rate to 60Hz. This is the same screen we saw on the Poco X3. Image resolution is 1080 x 2400 pixels (395 dpi). Provides perfect color reproduction of the sRGB color gamut.

The main camera of the Poco X3 Pro has kept the same design as the Poco X3, however the resolutions of some sensors are different. The main sensor has been upgraded from 64MP to 48MP, while the ultra-wide lens uses 8MP instead of 13MP. Depth sensor and macro camera remain unchanged: both 2 megapixels.

The quad camera is complemented by a single LED flash. The resolution of the front camera is 20 megapixels. Poco X3 Pro shoots 4K video at 30 fps.

The sound system is presented in the form of two stereo speakers with Hi-Res Audio support. They provide reasonably good volume, but the sound lacks bass. The smartphone will perfectly cope with high-quality playback of music and the sound of the game.

Performance and battery life

The gadget uses the Android 11 operating system and the MIUI 12 shell. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor contributes to the fast operation of the phone even during intense gaming.

The LPDDR4X RAM in the maximum configuration of the smartphone reaches 8 GB, and the UFS 3.1 flash drive is 256 GB. Adreno 640 is built-in as a graphics chip. An infrared port is provided to control household appliances. There is also a multifunctional NFC module.

Like its predecessor, the Poco X3 Pro is powered by a fairly large 5160mAh battery. 33W fast charging supported. In 59 minutes, the gadget is able to charge 100%. The maximum battery life can be 110 hours.

Poco X3 Pro can offer the user a high level of performance, a quality display, fast charging and long battery life. If you pay attention to such trifles as stereo speakers, a functional camera and splash protection, you might be surprised at the low cost of such a complete device.

The Pro version received a less powerful camera than the Poco X3, but a more powerful processor. If you want to buy a new smartphone from the middle price segment, we recommend that you take a closer look at the Poco X3 Pro. In this price range, it is one of the best gadgets.

#Design, ergonomics and software

Externally, as I said, Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro does not differ from POCO X3 NFC in any way: these smartphones received identical cases.

The front panel received small frames around the screen (which occupies 84.6% of the surface here) and the front camera in the hole in the center. The rear panel is notable for a huge logo, a stripe in the middle highlighted by a texture, and a cunningly shaped camera block. The fingerprint scanner is here in the side button to turn on the device.

Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro, front panel: in the upper part of the screen, the front camera is inscribed directly into its surface, under the upper edge there is a speaker

Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro, rear panel: a camera unit with a single LED flash integrated into it

Accordingly, all our joys remained the same (the original, very characteristic performance of this smartphone cannot be confused with any other) and sorrows (the case is very bulky, it fits in a with a creak, it is not very convenient to use). At the same time, I note once again that the back panel is not made of the usual glass, but of plastic. Not very premium, but the case is less slippery and will not break entirely when dropped. Nevertheless, there is a case made of transparent silicone in the kit and for good reason.

POCO X3 Pro differs only in color variations along with the blue, familiar and younger versions, also available in Sparkling Bronze and Black Phantom versions. The last one just got us for a test.

Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro, upper edge: two microphones and an infrared port

Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro, bottom: mini-jack, USB Type-C port, another microphone and speaker

There is one more difference that cannot be seen with the naked eye: the front panel is covered with tempered glass of the next generation, compared to what was on the X3 NFC, Gorilla Glass 6. The case, as before, has IP53 splash protection.

The fingerprint scanner is built into the power button of the smartphone and is located on the right side. All the pluses and minuses are as usual: the location is convenient, the scanner is always under your finger, you don’t need to shift the smartphone in your hand, the capacitive sensor is not bad, that is, it works quickly and quite clearly, but the coverage area is expectedly not enough, the percentage of failures is high. But at the same time, you touch the scanner in your every now and then, which is why the smartphone regularly asks you to enter a PIN code, because there are too many unsuccessful unlock attempts. There is, however, a traditional duplicate method of user identification using face recognition, for which the front camera is used. It is not very reliable, but at least I did not manage to deceive the system with a photograph. But the Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro does not recognize the face in the medical mask, while the X3 NFC recognized it. The system has changed over the time that has passed between the release of the two models, but it is difficult to say whether for the better or for the worse.

POCO X3 NFC runs on Android 11 operating system running MIUI 12 with an add-on in the form of Poco Launcher. The difference from the usual MIUI, in fact, is one normally working search for applications from a special screen where they are all collected, while in MIUI it is absent by default. For the rest, it remains to refer to the reviews of all the latest Xiaomi smartphones, proving that this is not the flagship version of the shell with Super Wallpapers and special animations, and there is a sewn-in ad. In this regard, POCO is no different from Redmi. If we talk about the experience of interacting with the operating system, it is as close as possible to what we get from Redmi Note 10 Pro, with a discount for faster animations and system operation; a more powerful platform makes itself felt.

Review of the smartphone Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro: a smart choice for a gamer

The fact that it is difficult to determine the identity of the POCO sub-brand (only huge inscriptions on the back panel come to mind) did not prevent the Chinese from releasing several more or less hit models under this same sub-brand last year, primarily talking about POCO M3 and POCO X3 NFC, and to a much lesser extent about POCO F2 Pro. However, the idea of ​​the very first Pocofone F1, which offered near-flagship performance (with relatively ordinary other characteristics) at a mid-range price, has not been reused since then. Until the release of POCO X3 Pro.

This smartphone is outwardly easy to confuse with POCO X3 NFC, they received an identical design (except that the colors are slightly different), the same screens, the same front cameras, but otherwise they are still different. First of all, the hardware platform. Here, the X3 Pro just inherits the very first Pocophone, bringing to the price category of 23-25 ​​thousand rubles, where the Snapdragon 7xx series reigns, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 system-on-a-chip. In addition, the smartphone received a different set of rear cameras and a fatter built-in storage in maximum configuration. Throw in a 6.67-inch 120Hz screen and we’ve got a bid for the top mainstream gaming smartphone of 2021. And a hint at the return of the original idea of ​​pocophones.

#Display and sound

The POCO X3 Pro has the same screen as the POCO X3 NFC, LCD instead of OLED, but still it has become one of the key advantages of the X3 NFC over its main competitors. You understand why it supports a refresh rate of 120 Hz, while competitors do not always reach 90 Hz. True, POCO X3 Pro is already aiming for a slightly higher price segment, where you can’t surprise anyone with an increased hertz, and AMOLED is already becoming a mandatory program, so on paper the screen is seen as one of the weak points of the model.

Key features of the POCO X3 Pro screen: IPS-matrix, diagonal 6.67 inches, resolution Full HD (2400 × 1080 pixels). The pixel density is low, but sufficient for the picture to be perceived normally, 395 ppi. Viewing angles are wide, there is an effective oleophobic coating.

The measured maximum brightness level without software enhancement during auto-adjustment is 438 cd/m 2. the result is average. Contrast also does not hear the loud characteristic of 1305:1. At the same time, it is quite possible to use a smartphone on a sunny day; the backlight is activated to its fullest, the colors change: gray is displayed instead of black, but everything on the screen is visible without any problems.

Image settings are quite extensive: there is a special reading mode with a warm screen tone, font adjustments, a dark mode, even special options for working with VR. Color rendition adjustment is also available: there is an automatic adjustment depending on the lighting, and a saturated mode, and a standard mode, and the ability to manually adjust the color tone to taste. I measured the color reproduction of the display in automatic mode (according to visual sensations, it is extremely close to saturated) and in standard.

In both modes, the color gamut exceeds the sRGB standard, but there is no way to talk about approaching DCI-P3, and the shades are not the same. In automatic mode, the gamma significantly exceeded the norm of 2.41. At the same time, the curves behave quite normally, there is no spread, just the average level is higher than necessary. The color temperature is very high and not very stable. The range is from 7,800 to 10,500 K with a median around 9,000 K. The colors are very cold. The average deviation of DeltaE on the Color Checker scale, which includes both a wide range of colors and shades of gray, is 6.68 at a rate of 3.00, you should not count on any honest colors.

If the behavior of the display in the automatic adjustment mode was not surprising, the POCO X3 NFC screen behaved in the same way (albeit with a more adequate gamma), then in the standard mode, where the image on the younger version of the X3 more or less returned to normal, serious questions already arose. For some reason, the color space turned out to be even wider, although the very characteristic of the mode hints that it should be maximally adapted to work with sRGB. The gamma is the same (2.40), and the color temperature, instead of approaching the norm, turned out to be even higher. The median is already closer to 9,500 K. Not surprisingly, the average DeltaE deviation on the Color Checker scale is already 6.83. Something went wrong with the Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro screen setup, although it seemed that you just need to do everything like in POCO X3 NFC.

But Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro has both a mini-jack and stereo speakers. I can’t recommend a smartphone to music lovers. The sound channel can be called a maximum of ordinary. But for gamers, who are seen as the main target audience of the device, all this is very useful. As the second speaker, a conversational one is used, and not a specialized one, brought to the upper edge, but this does not cause problems with sound positioning. With wireless data order, both aptX and LDAC are supported.
