You’re effectively getting a two-year-old flagship (with the benefit of software support from POCO and Qualcomm) along with some other beefy specifications as well. There are very few things that the Snapdragon 860 can’t do. Couple that with a 1080p 120Hz IPS LCD panel and a fairly capable camera system and you have yourself a winner. €300 flagship smartphones are long gone, but this isn’t a far cry away from being one. It’s actually cheaper than the POCO X3 NFC was at launch, putting the POCO X3 Pro in an insanely competitive position. The POCO X3 NFC made waves in the latter half of 2020 when it offered something that much of the competition could not — powerful mid-range specs and a 120Hz display all at a low price. 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.
- Additionally, the lower resolution doesn’t leave you as much room to crop in.
- This new release reduces system lag and stock firmware file improves the phone’s overall performance.
- In games, this phenomenon can manifest itself after a long game time and result in a slight loss of fps.
- Including firmware update, firmware downgrade, or flashing stock ROM a.k.a reinstall your Xiaomi Android Smartphone operating system.
Affordable Price – The Poco X3 Pro offers excellent value for money, as it provides high-end features at a mid-range price point. Decent Processing Capabilities – One of the main highlights of the Poco M4 Pro is the ability to process tasks like a piece of cake. It’s loaded with a Dimensity 810 5G processor and runs on an ad-free version of MIUI which is pretty decent in my opinion. The UI of the shell and apps is smooth, and the increased frequency works in some games. The frequency itself is dynamic and can vary depending on the task. The smartphone can automatically set 50, 60, 90 or 120 Hz depending on the running apps and user interaction.
- It also supports the Clone photo mode, and Long exposure mode for the camera enthusiasts out there.
- The Poco X3 NFC did a good job of recording loudness when using the memo app.
- The equipment list of the Poco X3 Pro is quite impressive considering the starting price of 250 Euros (~$305) that Xiaomi has set for its mid-range smartphone.
- The 20 MP selfie camera captures bright images with accurate colours.
Wait for a couple of minutes, and once the process completes. If a stock ROM is open-source such as Android, code can be accessed by the developer, edited, recompiled, and re-released for another android or Custom ROM.

Some functionalities might be compatible with other Xiaomi devices (Android one ones for example, or Blackshark). Some might work even with other brand devices, but this tool is not designed to do that, so please use it with Xiaomi devices. No smartwatches, TVs or any other type of device are supported. We always suggest, before the start, the flashing process you need to create a backup of your Android smartphone. You can use any of the following versions of Xiaomi Flash Tool to flash the firmware. However, we recommend using the latest tool version for Maximum Compatibility and Stability with the Windows OS. After this process you will probably need to reflash TWRP image on your phone because flashing any Official update replaces TWRP with Mi-Recovery.
But the older 8-series Snapdragon chipsets are still more powerful than today’s 7-series ones. The one other quirk is unlikely to bother too many people.
