The phone has a 6.7-inch 60Hz AMOLED panel, and it features an Exynos 9825 chipset with plenty of power and a 64MP camera that takes great shots. The standout feature is the gargantuan 7000mAh battery with 25W fast charging. The F62 costs more at ₹23,999 ($325), but then again, you are getting a lot of phone here. On average, my smartphone lived on a single charge for 7-8 hours of active screen in 120 Hz mode.
- Xiaomi isn’t positioning this phone as a camera-focused option, and that is evident in the resultant shots.
- However, this is not solving all of the problems and as of now, there is not a global solution.
- The main one is 50 megapixels in resolution and has an f/1.8 aperture.
Other than these two things the rest of the hardware design is identical to that of the Poco X3 NFC. This means, the same camera module layout along with the snappy fingerprint scanner built into the power button. The IR blaster is still there on the top rail along with the headphone jack on the bottom. And yes, that reminded me about the haptics on this phone.
Other phones may get the Snapdragon 860, but they don’t have it at the time of review. 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. The Poco X3 Pro can take nice photos, better ones than the Microsoft Surface Duo (original cost $1400 / about £1,075), which we tried recently.
- The brightness is almost always enough, but the auto brightness does not work quite correctly and often you have to move the slider manually.
- The Poco X3 Pro supports LDAC, SBC, AAC, aptX, and aptxHD Bluetooth codecs.
- They offer excellent battery life, along with a decent camera setup.
- Color reproduction is on the saturated side, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
- The marquee feature on the POCO X3 Pro is the Snapdragon 860 chipset.
- I’m actually more impressed Poco included support Stock Firmware for 26W USB-PD that’s almost as fast and works with more plugs.
The form factor is similar too, but this time Poco has worked on the weight and thickness, as X3 Pro is 9.4mm thick compared to 10.1mm on the X3. Since the X3 received a lot of criticism about its weight this time X3 Pro weighs about 213 grams as per the brand. But in our testing, it came out to be 215 grams, which is slightly lighter when compared to X3 with 225 grams. So, I would say Poco has definitely worked on the feedback, but the phone still feels bulky and heavy in hand, I hope Poco works to refine it more in the next model. By default, the phone delivers 12 MP shots that contain a good amount of detail and natural colours.
