Unboxing the Poco X3 Pro, an upgraded 2021 version of the NFC smartphone, one of the best budget (ex) Xiaomi handsets to rival the Redmi Note 10 Pro. This hands-on review includes a tour of the camera features, testing the Snapdragon 860 chipset with some gaming, and a look at the best Poco X3 Pro features.
Here in the UK, the price is £199 for the 6/128GB model, or £249 for the 8/256GB version. Strong specs for a proper budget cost! Here’s a link if you’re interested: I
If you want an affordable phone that doesn’t skimp on speed, this is a solid option. The SD860 is a slightly scaled back version of the nippy SD865 platform and it can happily handle games, helped by Xiaomi’s MiUI Game Booster feature. You don’t get 5G support, but the Poco X3 Pro is certainly no slouch.
A quad lens camera should be fine for everyday photos and video, headed up by a 48MP primary shooter. I’m hoping to review this Poco blower soon, after fully testing that camera tech.
You also have a mighty 5160mAh battery, 6.67-inch 120Hz IPS screen and stereo speakers, same as the NFC version.
