Beautiful Design – I personally loved the sleek design and build of the Poco M4 Pro 5G. It has a large 6.6-inch display and has a big camera housing at the back. The M4 Pro 5G also is quite lightweight and slim making it easy to hold while gaming. The phone is protected from splashes and dust according to the IP53 standard. This is no full-fledged moisture protection, but it is better than nothing, I suppose.
- OEM unlocking has been enabled on your Poco stock Android firmware X3 Pro device.
- MIUI 12 comes with both exclusive Xiaomi and Android 11 general features.
- Xiaomi hasn’t promised any specific number of system updates for the phone, but based on the company’s track record it’s likely to receive the next two Android version updates.
Once you put it in the included protective case, however, this is almost no longer noticeable. If you are looking for a budget smartphone with long battery life and fast charging, the Poco X3 Pro is the better choice. In terms of camera performance, the Poco M4 Pro 5G has a slightly better rear camera setup with a higher resolution primary sensor and better ultra-wide camera performance. The back panel features a rectangular camera module on the top left corner housing four cameras and an LED flash. The phone measures 165.3 x 76.8 x 9.4 mm and weighs 215 grams. High Refresh Rate Display – The device features a 120Hz refresh rate display, which offers a smoother and more responsive viewing experience.
That’s impressive given that the Poco X3 Pro comes in at well under $300 and has plenty of other bonuses on offer. It does a lot of things well and might be a compelling option for those searching for a new smartphone but with a tight budget. I have never been a fan of the software on Xiaomi phones. I don’t like how everything is rounded and cartoony in the UI. Xiaomi does offer a lot of customization options which is cool but still, they can do a lot better compared to what they have right now. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the camera performance from the Poco X3 Pro. And while the lens themselves are great, I think a lot of credit should be given to the Snapdragon 860 since it does all the heavy lifting on the processing side of things.
