Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro: The review results in overview

The Poco X3 Pro offers a lot of power, a strong set of features, and it's already approaching the 200-Euro mark (~$244) in online stores.

With the Poco X3 Pro, Xiaomi once again becomes unpopular with the competition. At a starting price of 250 Euros (~$305), the 6.7-inch mid-range smartphone offers a lot of performance combined with extensive features. Only 4G and an OLED panel are missing.

Just like the models in the Redmi series, Xiaomi's Poco smartphones consistently stand out with their good price-performance ratio. The Poco X3 Pro follows the same line, since it offers an almost brute performance by mid-range standards, and it also scores points with features like a 120 Hz display, NFC, and a quad-camera setup with 48 MP.

Snapdragon 860: New edition of the high-end Snapdragon 855+ SoC

The Poco X3 Pro is the first Xiaomi smartphone to be equipped with the new Snapdragon 860. However, the SoC is not exactly new, because it's more or less based on the same technology that powered the Snapdragon 855+, which was regarded as a high-end processor two years ago. As our review shows, the Snapdragon 860 isn't a sham despite its old technology. While its performance no longer meets today's high-end standards, it's still easily sufficient to beat many modern mid-range smartphones.

120 Hz display at 2400x1080 pixels

The rest of the Poco X3 Pro's configuration is also impressive. The smaller version comes with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 storage (250 Euros (~$305)). The larger version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage is available for 300 Euros (~$366). The IPS display renders its Full HD+ resolution of 2400x1080 pixels at up to 120 Hz, and with its Adreno 640 GPU as well as its stereo speakers, it puts games in a suitable light. The mid-range smartphone is supplied with power by a 5,160 mAh battery that ensures good battery life.

My fascination for computers started with the C64. Since then, I’ve put everything that comes my way in terms of hardware through its paces. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and the first PC with an 8088 CPU, my list of projects has grown increasingly longer. For more than 20 years now I have also turned my hobby into my profession and have been active in the mobile section of Notebookcheck since 2021. Before that, I worked as a hardware editor for IDG Media ( and VNU Business Publications (PC professional), among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
