Poco X3: Design

The Poco X3 comes as the latest mid-range offering by the Xiaomi’s former sub-brand in India. The device features a gradient rear panel with a circular camera module with quad-sensors and an LED aligned in X-shape. The smartphone comes with 165.3 x 76.8 x 9.4 mm dimensions and weighs 215 grams. The smartphone accommodates a 6.67-inch LCD display which is HDR 10 certified. The display delivers an FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and has a higher 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. It has a centre-aligned punch-hole for the selfie camera and also the display gets the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Poco X3: Hardware Performance

Under the hood, the Poco X3 packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G mid-range chipset. The processor is combined with Adreno 618 GPU to handle the graphics. The device has been announced with up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 onboard storage configuration. To suffice the additional requirements, the device supports up to 256GB microSD card. The device has a game-centric processor which in combination with the 120Hz display will allow for an enhanced gaming experience. The device will be able to render graphic-hungry games with ease. Not just gaming, other tasks are also expected to be handled without any lags or hiccups.

Poco X3: Price To Specs Ratio

The Poco X2 has been announced with an asking price of Rs. 16,999 in India. You will get the 6GB RAM+ 64GB storage model for this price. The mid-range model which is packed with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at Rs. 18,499, while the top model will be selling for Rs. 19,999 in the country. The device will be available in Shadow Grey and Cobalt Blue shades. Poco has always been aggressive when it comes to pricing. The latest offering has been packed with a good set of internals but still will be retailing below Rs. 20,000 mark.

Poco X3: Camera Performance

The Poco X3’s quad-camera setup on the back has a 64MP primary sensor which is a Sony IMX682 lens. The main lens is aided by a 13MP secondary ultra-wide-angle sensor which has an f/2.2 aperture and 119-degree FoV. There is also a pair of 2MP sensors which have an f/2.4 aperture used for macro and depth photography. In addition to the standard HDR, Portrait, Panorama, Time-Lapse, and Slow-motion videos, the cameras also feature AI Skyscraping, Pro mode, Cyberpunk, and Gold Vibes mode. The smartphone uses a 20MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture for selfies and video calling. The device has capable camera hardware for mobile photography. You will be able to click images with a good amount of detailing overall.

Poco X3: Highlight/ Important Features

The Poco X3 biggest highlight comes in the form of a massive 6,000 mAh battery which takes charge over a USB Type-C port. This size battery is being preferred by the manufacturers nowadays and we have seen multiple mid-range devices with a similar battery capacity. For a quick refuel, the device relies on the 33W fast-charging tech. So, not only you get longer backup with a humongous battery unit, but also quick recharging time. Additional features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for security, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and IP53 certification which makes it splash-proof.

Verdict

Poco has been one of the strongest contenders in the mid-range segment and was amongst the first few brands to introduce the concept of value flagship smartphones. The company has been offering potent smartphones ever since its arrival in the mobile space. The Poco X3 comes as a successor to the Poco X2 and brings some noticeable upgrades over its precursor. It is one of the most capable smartphones with a 64MP quad-camera setup, 33W fast charging supported 6,000 mAh battery and an FHD+ resolution under Rs. 20,000 price mark in India.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
