Poco X3 Specifications
First let's talk about the features and specs of the smartphone. The Poco X3 features a 6.67-inch LCD FHD+ display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is one of the few smartphones in the segment that supports 120Hz refresh rate. The smartphone was one of the first to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G SoC a SoC designed for mid-range smartphones.
The camera department features a 64MP (F/1.9) main camera sensor along with a 13MP (F/2.2) ultra-wide-angle-sensor, a 2MP macro sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. It is capable of recording up to 4K video at 30fps and 1080p video at up to 120fps. On the front is a single 20MP (F/2.2) camera with support for up to 1080p video at 30fps.
The smartphone also packs a 6,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
Why is it a great deal?
-- The Poco X3 features a big display which is the need of the hour. The number of users opting smartphones to stream content have gone up, especially in the post-pandemic world. The Poco X3 fits the bill well with its FHD+ screen.
-- The 120Hz refresh rate panel is also suited for mobile gamers. And, there is no doubt that many potential buyers would be looking at a budget phone for gaming. While it's still easy to find smartphones with 90Hz display in this segment, there is no one who is giving you a 120Hz panel.
-- The smartphone also impresses with its camera performance. The combination of 64MP main lens, 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, macro and depth lenses of 2MP each help you click amazing pictures both in daylight and night.
-- The battery is another reason to spend on this mid-range smartphone. With the 120Hz display, you ideally need a big battery and the Poco X3 gives exactly that with the 6000 mAh pack.
-- You get a 33W charger inside the box. Few days back, it wouldn't have mattered much but charging bricks will soon become more valuable. In fact, some have stopped shipping them already. So, grab as long as you can.
-- Lastly, the thing you need to consider is the all-round performance. The Poco X3 ticks most boxes big display, high refresh rate, large battery, fast charging, good camera performance. There is nothing much you can ask from a phone at this price point.
Despite all these great things, couple of other factors you need to factor in are the weight of the phone and brightness of the panel. The Poco X3 weighs around 225 grams which is on the heavier side and the peak brightness of the screen is 450 nits which could be a problem at times.
