Poco X3 is one of the newest Poco phones that shocked the whole world. Price range mid-range phone with specifications close to the flagship. A phone with a price of 199 Euros and specifications for 500 Euros. Using high-end technologies such as a 120Hz display and a 240Hz touch screen, Poco has made this phone one of the most popular phones of 2020. If you are looking for a mid-range phone, the Poco X3 is definitely one of the best.

Features of this screen include HDR 10, 240Hz touch, 120Hz refresh rate, and 450nits brightness. This LCD screen is one of the best and shows high quality and sharp images with HDR10 standard. Apart from all this, the most important parts of the screen are the 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch, which we mostly see in the flagships. This refresh rate makes the user experience smoother and more enjoyable. If you are interested in gaming, with a touch of 240 Hz and a 120 Hz screen, you have a screen completely at the level of gaming phones.
Poco has used the latest Snapdragon 7 series processor. The 732G processor used is about 11% more powerful than the Snapdragon 730G. The Snapdragon 732G has a (2×2.3 GHz Kryo 470 Gold & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 470 Silver) core. Also, this processor uses Adreno 618 graphics processor.

Poco mentioned a lot about the Poco X3 camera at his conference. It was mentioned during the conference that the cameras of this phone are at the level of flagships. But this is not exactly right. The camera quality of this phone is very high and is equal to the camera of a smartphone for 500 Euros. But it is not as good as the flagships for 1000 Euros. The main sensor of the Poco X3 is a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 Exmor RS sensor. The second camera is a 13-megapixel Ultra-wide, the third a 2-megapixel macro camera, and the fourth a 2-megapixel depth camera. The 64-megapixel main camera and 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera offer good quality, but the depth and macro cameras not of high quality. But overall, the Poco camera is much more valuable than the € 200 phones and is a good mid-range smartphone.
Poco X3 camera is capable of shooting videos at 4K,30fps, and 720p, 960fps. The selfie camera of this phone is also 20-megapixels, which captures quality images with the help of artificial intelligence. (best phone under 200 Euros)
memory and RAM
Poco has offered this smartphone in two versions. The first version in this review has 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal memory. The second version also has 6 GB of RAM and 128GB of memory. The positive point of this phone is the use of 6 GB, which most phones in the same category use 4 GB of RAM. This increase of 2 GB of RAM makes the gaming experience better. The downside of the Poco X3 is that it does not increase the RAM in the 128GB version. Because there is a price difference of 50 to 60 euros between the 128 and 64 GB versions.
Dimensions and design
Xiaomi Poco X3 has dimensions (76.8 mm • 165.3 mm • 9.4 mm) and weighs 215g. This phone is large in size and relatively heavy. But Poco has managed to fit a very large 6.67-inch screen on this phone. and 91% of the front of the phone is the screen. In terms of design, Poco has used a relatively new design. On the back, we see the arrangement of the phone’s cameras in a different way, which is very good. But on the back of the phone, the word Poco is written in a very large size, which some people do not think is very separate.
Poco used a very large battery in the X3. This battery has a capacity of 5160 mAh and has a very good fast charging capability of 33-watts. And Poco has announced that x3 will be charged at 62% in 30 min and 100% in 65 min. with this powerful battery, you do not need to charge this phone for up to two days.
Poco has used very good features on this phone. One of them is the use of two dual quality speakers at the top and bottom of the phone, which has very good quality. This phone also benefits from IP53 certification, which prevents it from being damaged by water and other particles. The Poco X3 also supports a separate memory card and a 3.5mm jack and an infrared sensor. Poco also announced that it has used water cooling in this phone, which reduces the temperature up to 6 degrees. Another feature of this phone is the use of a 4-dimensional vibration motor. According to Poco, this vibration is felt when typing and gaming. And it conveys a feeling close to the console controller to people.
During poco conference, Xiaomi Poco introduced this phone as a flagship. Poco’s claim is true in some respects. But in some areas, such as the processor and the camera, it is not correct and the discrepancy is quite clear. In general, Poco has raised the expectations of the € 200 phone with the introduction of this phone. The specifications of this phone are in the range of 500 euro phones and we can say that we do not see such features in any of the phones under 300 euros.
If you want a very good phone, Poco X3 is the best choice for you. Also, if you are interested in playing with a smartphone and you do not want to spend a lot of money, Poco X3 is one of the best choices among smartphones.
