You can configure it from the Mi Remote app on your smartphone. Close-up and portrait shots are decent, since phone cameras are in general much better when dealing with subjects in the foreground. There’s some natural depth of field which always makes shots stand out nicely. In an interesting twist, Poco has gone with lower resolutions for the X3 Pro’s rear cameras than it did with the Poco X3. You get a 48-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide one, compared to 64 and 13 megapixels respectively on what is supposed to be a lower-end model in the same series.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and Realme 8 Pro have a slimmer design and AMOLED displays, and slightly better camera performance. The Standard mode targets sRGB and the Saturated mode targets DCI-P3.
- With the Poco X3 Pro, Xiaomi combines an actually low price with a fast processor and a lavish camera equipment.
- That’s barely a 10% advantage to the Snapdragon 860, which is smaller than some would expect, considering the old chipset features a Prime Core clocked at 2.96 GHz.
- With a 6.67-inch screen and massive 5160mAh battery, the X3 Pro is one of the largest and heaviest phones in this category.

- As a result, the smartphone is supposed to survive a drop from up to 1.6 meters onto hard, rough surfaces – we didn’t give this a try, though.
The ultra-wide-angle camera of course captures poorer details and compression does seem rougher, plus there’s some perspective warping at the edges of frames. We’ve spoken about MIUI 12 in detail in our recent reviews of the Redmi Note 10 and Mi 11X, plus all their siblings.
In Europe, you could pick it up for around €200 at launch, and I have personally recommended it to a number of friends after I spent some time with the device. The Snapdragon 732G that powered it was found in much more expensive mid-range smartphones like the Google Pixel 4a.
The Snapdragon 860 at 2.96 GHz max clock frequency and 7 nm lives inside the Poco X3 Pro, while the Dimensity 1100 at 2.6 GHz max and 6 nm are in charge of the Poco X3 GT’s performance. Of the rest, they have slight differences in terms of dimensions, with the Poco X3 Pro being larger, but where they differ the most is in the weights. The former weighs 215 grams and the latter about 193 grams, which results in about 23 grams less in favour of the Poco X3 GT, which is why the latter is more comfortable in the hand. The X3 Pro is the first handset to offer Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 860 platform. This is almost identical to the last-gen 855+ – same number of cores, same clock speed, same graphics – but stock firmware without an X50 modem and, therefore, it’s 4G/LTE only – no 5G. The Poco X3 Pro for the 6GB RAM +128GB storage option is priced at €249 (~$296), but you can expect an early-bird price of €199 (~$237).
