Poco x3 - the best budget smartphone

Poco X3 NFC model lunched in 7 september 2020 under Xiaomi brand. Poco is just a sub brand of the big Xiaomi network that build cheep smartphones for clients from China end India.

But, this model is not the high-end model like Poco F1 and F2, that you are use whit it from Xiaomi, is made just for the low cost market and whit the list of thinks that the clients of this type of market were asking.

Even if this model is just for the low price market, it has a lot of good features and it my be the best buy for the $ of 2020.

Poco X3 is selling on the market 2 version : one whit a 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory, and one whit a 6 GB of RAM and a 128 GB of internal memory.

As a spechification, this model has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor that can make a good us of the 5G connection.


The display is a 6.67-inch Full HD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels resolution) IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 240Hz touch sampling rate and 120Hz refresh rate. It covers 84% of the NTSC colour gamut and 87.4% of the DCI-P3 colourscape. The display also supports HDR10, and is TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certified. The display also supports adaptive refresh rate (called DynamicSwitch) where the phones adjusts its max refresh rate depending on the content or app. Games get higher refresh rates, while text-based apps have significantly lower refresh rate to save power.

This display support HDR10 and it sed, but not confirmed, that is has a 450 nits typ. brightness, way bigger then the usual display put it on xiaomi low cost smartphones.


It has a quad-camera setup on its rear, led by a 64MP main camera that has a Sony IMX682 sensor. The other three are a 13MP ultra-wide-angle shooter with 119-degrees field of view (FOV), 2MP macro sensor with 4cm shooting distance, and a 2MP depth sensor for bokeh shots. The front camera is a 20MP shooter with 4-in-1 Super Pixel, a pixel binning technique that combines adjacent pixels for better image clarity.

Con for the cameras

The downside is that from all this pack of cameras, only the big camera whit 64 MP has a software stabilisation video in filming.

The battery is good and has a capacity of 5160 mhA that will be ok for a wall day log of usage.


The Poco X3 NFC come whit Android 10 and MUI 12 , but from some test, it seem that the speed of this cell phone is a little lower the a high-end phones like MI 10 or samsung S20.


The price will start at $199 for the 64 GB memory version and will go higher for the 128 GB version, like $249. This are the price from the Xiaomi but will go a little higher in the shops around the world. I think only on Alixperss, the Poco x3 NFC is rated at this standard prices.


This is the HOT deal when it come to the best buy for the $ in the marker on september 2020. It has a lot of good thinks and alt low cost that will make all the other models not wort to try.

PS : in 11 september 2020, 4 days after lunch, Xiaomi sold more then 100000 utits via Alixpress and is steel go good whit the sales.
