Xiaomi has decided to launch its new mid-range smartphone specifically for video games in the Peruvian market: it is the Poco X3 Pro, the same one that we have been able to test for a few weeks and we already have the final evaluation.
The device tends to last quite a bit when it comes to power, but there are certain components that leave us a bit disappointed. To know in detail all its components, check the following review.
The Poco X3 Pro de Xiaomi arrives in a striking blue color, named by the brand como Frost Bluand. In the back, in addition to locating an island of cameras, we can read an inscription that says Poco, the same one that sits on a corrugated cover that gives it a quite pleasant texture.
Xiaomi’s Poco X3 Pro carries a series of fairly slim measurements: 165.3 x 76.8 x 9.4mm and weighs around 215 grams, although I must say they do feel in the palm of your hand.
A feature that many are looking for today is that the device has Dual SIM, something that this Chinese cell phone does have. So you can put a double calling card, in addition to a MicroSD in case you run out of space that the equipment brings.
Already moving to its sides, we find a USB Type-C port in the lower part, accompanied by a 3.5 Jack port for headphones. There are also the classic volume buttons and the on and off buttons that you can also configure as a fingerprint reader. You can place several fingerprints at the same time so that it recognizes quite quickly if you want to use the cell phone with the right or left hand.
As I mentioned at the beginning, what is striking are its cameras and that they are placed in a kind of rectangle.
Undoubtedly we are facing a fairly clean model, without too many fillers or buttons to call the assistant or a rear fingerprint reader. Plus point.
The screen of the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro comes with 6.67-inch IPS technology, in addition to a 120 Hz refresh rate so that the mobility of objects is as accurate as possible to reality, and you can even easily read a website and even notice them in the video games themselves.
However, in my opinion the terminal lacks a little more brightness. It has 450 nits and the brightness of the screen may not be enough and as a result some notifications are fixed.
The hue of the colors of the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro display is quite saturated and vivid, but you can change the resolution to whatever you want and even activate the blue filter for reading.
The terminal is protected by the video of Gorilla Glass 6It also has a small screen protection sheet, although we advise you to buy a more resistant one to avoid scratches on the screen.
One of the aspects that I liked about the Poco X3 Pro is that it can reproduce up to 60 frames per second without reducing the quality of your videos, as well as adjust the resolution and size of the clip, for example, from YouTube, Netflix, so that take advantage of the full screen. However, in the case of video games, I feel that it needs one more pinch of naturalness and speed for the effects, since they do not seem to be 120 Hz but 90 Hz. Will an update be missing?
PROCESSOR AND PERFORMANCE
The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro, belonging to the mid-range sector, has not suffered any kind of untimely stoppages and has remained at the top, with fluidity, while I played heavy video games or that require too many elements in their graphics.
When you start to play, in the Game mode of the device, all 120 Hz components are activated quickly and you will be warned by means of a small notification, for example in soccer apps or the striking Pokémon United. Even the level of connectivity is quite fast compared to other cell phones in the same range.
Although there is a device with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, the one that is marketed in Peru is nothing more than that of 6 GB of RAM, accompanied by 128 GB of internal storage. I think they are enough for you to archive the documents, videos and photos you want.
As if that were not enough, Xiaomi’s Poco X3 Pro has not presented any kind of fever on the cell phone, everything has remained stable and controllable, but you will notice that the temperature rises when you open strategy video games.
Although the Poco family is prepared for gamer, this terminal comes with a Snapdragon 860 processor, and it can perfectly run games like Fortnite, Pokémon GO or the heavy PUGB. Best of all, you can choose the maximum performance and there will be no lag in between.
The terminal also comes with the customization layer of MIUI 12.5, the same one that is quite friendly and that allows you to modify the themes in its main application. Of course, there are some pre-installed apps that, for the most part, are not for continuous use.
The photos of the Poco X3 Pro de Xiaomi they come out decent and do not generate any kind of pixelization or deformation as long as you use the maximum quality of the 48 megapixels that the main sensor brings.
Three more sensors are also added to the device, the lens 8 megapixel wide angle, 2 megapixels in macro and 2 megapixels in depth.
The images from the device do not suffer from blurring and the shots are quite fast, being able to capture moving elements without generating bursts, for example, be precise if you want to take a photo of a moving vehicle or someone running.
in addition, you can help the HDR to better control the input of brightness of the main camera and take advantage of the tones of the image to be photographed. When it works in conjunction with the macro lens, we can get closer to the object without deforming it too much, yes, you will have to press the screen a little so that the sensor can work faster and not have a blurry image.
In the same way the wide angle. This sensor has the peculiarity of taking much larger photos of landscapes, for example, but it has a slight disadvantage: the night. On certain occasions the zenith or the darkness play a trick on it, thus bringing a certain noise to your images.
On the other hand, the main camera, at night, may decrease its quality by a certain amount, but this can be supported by the night mode in order to take advantage of what you see with your own eyes and want it to also be projected on the cell phone.
On the subject of the selfie camera, you can even use the depth sensor to give your photos a blurred background touch. Details come out well compared to other mobile devices.
There is no pastelization, nor too much saturation in the self-portraits, although I must clarify that you must use good lighting so that these come out with good results, otherwise, it can be spoiled.
This is a positive point of the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is that when running applications such as video games, its battery is quite resistant and can last up to two and a half days on a single charge.
This terminal of the Chinese brand has about 5160 mAh and it is more than enough knowing that it is a device with a gamer name. They even have the original charger that gives you that kind of 33W power.
The Poco X3 Pro can reach the 50% connected with its 33w charger in just 40m minutes, while in an hour and 20 minutes you can enjoy 100%.
- The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro comes out very well not only in terms of design, with attractive color, but also because of the performance without having any type of obstacles in its daily use.
- The one that has a refresh rate of 120 Hz makes it a competitor to be one of the mid-range devices with that resolution.
- Another positive point is its battery. The terminal lasts on for a long time and can reach 3 days in case you have the energy saver enabled.
