Budget Xiaomi phones seem often to last a long time. The Poco X3 Pro will last almost two days for many people, and this kind of staying power is perfect for gamers.
The 3DMark Wild Life graphics tests posted a score of 3,476, while GFXBench’s T-Rex and Car Chase scenes ran at 119fps and 39fps respectively. The Snapdragon 860 has eight CPU cores with one running at 2.96GHz, three at 2.42GHz and four more at 1.8GHz, and also features the Adreno 640 integrated GPU.
During the test, the battery dropped from 82% to 76% which is not a major one. And the temperature went from 31 degrees Celcius to 40 degrees Celcius. Yet you can see the display on POCO X3 Pro at max brightness while outdoors. As this one comes with a big camera bump, the phone wobbles a lot when tapped on the upper-half portion of the screen from the sides. Though the wobbling is not there when tapped from the lower end of the phone.
- It is the first smartphone to run on the Snapdragon 860 which is essentially a rebadged Snapdragon 855+ processor from late 2019.

- Including firmware update, firmware downgrade, or flashing stock ROM a.k.a reinstall your Xiaomi Android Smartphone operating system.
- When we evaluate the devices in terms of design, our winner is the POCO X4 Pro.

To complement the high refresh rate display, the company has tuned MIUI to run at 120 fps. This is crucial, because refreshing the display 120 stock firmware times is pointless if it’s not fed with a new frame on each refresh cycle. In the UI and compatible games, you can switch between 60 Hz and 120 Hz refresh rate and clearly see the smoother motion offered by the latter.
It’s not too distracting, it’s just something to note, and given the cost of this smartphone, it’s not a dealbreaker. Stereo sound is offered with a combination of a bottom-firing speaker and the earpiece. At full volume, the entire chassis vibrates, but it doesn’t affect the sound quality. It’s not exactly great for music, but for videos and movies the sound profile is fairly good.
