Xiaomi released the Poco X3 NFC in September 2020. Since then, it has made a place in every Xiaomi users head. The primary reason for it is the price range and the specs it includes. There are lots of captivating features, the phone packs for such a low price tag. Xiaomi has put a lot into this phone to make it cheap and also includes loads of details.
let’s jump into the specifications of the phone to see if it surpasses your expectations for a low price range.
Simple, yet appealing design.
Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC has a dimension of 165.3 x 76.8 x 9.4 mm and weighs about 215 grams. It sits on an aluminum alloy frame with a plastic back. The Hybrid Dual SIM phone uses the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the display as a protection mechanism. You can rely upon the Glass against minor abuses and low drops. The phone is IP53 splash-proof but cannot survive the full immersion. The simplicity in design makes it more appealing in Shadow Gray and Cobalt Blue.

Display features that AWE you.
Poco X3 NFC has a 6.67 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, which supports 16 M colors. You can feel a little bit of bezel with a 91.25% screen-to-body ratio. You can enjoy an auto-adjusting 120 Hz Refresh-rate on a 20:9 aspect ratio. Xiaomi engineered to keep the 50 Hz refresh rate when the phone is idle, 60-120 Hz on gaming, and 120 Hz while scrolling. The adjustment is directly proportional to power usage and saving.
The 395 PPI density and the 450 nits brightness go perfectly with the 240 Hz touch-sampling. You will edge over the phones that have only 120 Hz by 4.16ms. Dominate the RPG games and multi-players.
Performance way above your expectations.
Poco X3 NFC operates on an Android 10 with an MIUI 12 on top. The poco launcher 2.0 delivers a lighter, smoother, and faster experience. It enables you lower power consumption and relieves eye strain.
Qualcomm SM7150-AC Snapdragon 732G (8 nm) makes a global debut with POCO X3, which focuses on gaming above all. It uses an Octa-core Kryo 470 CPU that integrates an Adreno 618 GPU. The platform can meet the demands of every gamer.
The phone sports a LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus for smooth and frictionless gaming. It can reduce the CPU temperature by up to 6 degrees, by combining with an enlarged copper hear pipe with a multilayer of graphite.
The use of GAME TURBO 3.0 enables you to tune the utility of the phone as per the needs of the games and apps. A plus point to the Z-axis linear motor with more than 150 modes of vibration for different occasions.
You get a 6GB LPDDR4X RAM on both the storage variations of 64GB and 128GB. 64GB variant is the one, I recommend you since you can expand the storage with a dedicated card slot. It will enable you to save nearly 25% of the cost of the phone.
Cameras that capture your dreams.
POCO X3 NFC has a quad-camera system with a 64MP main camera with Sony IMX682. You also get a 13 MP ultra-wide camera with a 119˚ FOV in addition to the dual 2 MP macro and depth cameras. The 2 MP cameras are not the flagship cameras but the other two cameras enable you to shoot decent pictures with crisp details and vibrant colors. The main problem is you do not get the image stabilization which makes your video not up to the mark of the flagship cameras. You can shoot up to 4K videos at 30 fps and there is a 20 MP wide-angle camera with HDR support.
Immersive Sound environment for real-time gaming.
Two stereo speakers produce high-quality 24-bit/192kHz audio output while gaming and listening to music. The speakers have the self-cleaning ability to keep ongoing for a long term run. You can easily cope with the live-time game with the immersive sound.
5,160 mAh battery and 33W fast charging, keep up with you.
Poco X3 NFC packs a 5160 mAh battery that can last up to 2 days under moderate usage. Xiaomi advertises 10 hours of battery life on Gaming alone, which is huge. You also get 17 hours of continuous videos, 153 hours of music on a single full charge. Talking about the charge, you get a 33 Watt fast charging that fills your battery within 65 minutes. It enables you to charge your phone up to 62% in just 3o minutes. The battery capacity is the best asset of the phone. Only expensive flagship phone pack such specs on the battery.
