Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro: The review results in overview
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.
