It lost several more percent of charge overnight and needed to be plugged in by lunchtime on day two. However, if you’re a lighter user you can expect the Poco X3 Pro to last two full days. The Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC is a mostly slightly worse alternative to the Poco X3 Pro, but it actually has better cameras, so if photography is a priority then it's worth considering.
The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is a budget gaming monster phone
The device has been tested in a controlled laboratory conditions which meets requirements of Classification IP53 as described by the International Standard IEC 60529. Xiaomi used rear glass in 2020’s Poco X2, but this phone and the Poco X3 NFC are largely plastic. There’s no glass bar the screen cover and top-most protective camera layer.

The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is a fairly large phone. It’s 76.8mm wide. That’s wider than a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra or the nearer-in-price 21:9 aspect Moto G 5G Plus. The processor comparison is comparing Snapdragon™ 860 with the processor of POCO X3 NFC (Snapdragon™ 732G). Brightness is not class leading. It seems to get a slight 'turbo' boost outdoors on bright days, but nothing close to flagship-like power.

The Poco X3 Pro lost ground in the camera section of this review, but it makes up a good deal of it with its chipset. That’s the Snapdragon 860, a processor that should interest many of you. This phone runs Android 11 with Xiaomi’s MIUI 12 software on top. This is fairly inoffensive, but its icons look, to our eyes at least, far too big fresh out of the box. However, at least it’s not quite as bad as the ‘Dare to Leap’ slogan etched into some Realme rivals. A brand name is one thing, but a Facebook-grade inspirational quote? No thanks. Charging speed is good enough too. The Poco X3 Pro comes with a 33W charger that takes the phone from flat to 59% in 30 minutes. Or to 100% in 59 minutes.

The Poco X3 Pro's screen looks sharp, color is bold, and the fairly large size instantly gives you the sense it’s made for games, video, and other stuff the enthusiast Poco crowd would enjoy. Poco phones seem to be popular among people who like to get a lot of tech for their cash. The Poco X3 NFC is arguably a better-balanced phone than the X3 Pro, and as such it ranks among the best cheap phones. Camera quality counts for a lot, but this is yet another demonstration of the sheer value you get with a Poco-series Android. Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro: price and availability
The Realme 8 Pro costs slightly more than the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro but it has better cameras, though it's another phone with no 5G, so it has some similar weaknesses.
