Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC came to tear everyone up like Tuzik a heating pad. And, perhaps, he has a chance.
The X3 is already the fourth Poco this year. But of the three previous ones, two are native Indians, they are not available to us. The third one, Poco F2 Pro, is certainly good, but still somewhat pricey. But the Poco X3 is inexpensive and therefore very interesting.
The official starting price is € 199 (₽17,700,$ 236) for the 6 + 64 GB version and € 249 (₽22,200, $ 295) for the 6 + 128 GB version. And officially, a link is given to the Xiaomi brand store on Alierxpress. Alas, the price there is a little higher - $ 238.8 (₽18,300) and $ 298.8 (₽22,900), respectively. In terms of euros, according to the internal Aliexpress rate, it will be € 206.57 and € 258.47. The difference is quite symbolic, but it's a shame that for the younger version the two-hundred-year duty-free threshold is exceeded.
Let's take a quick look at the characteristics. Chipset - Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. Moreover, Poco is the first smartphone on this chip. The first tests from the first reviewers show just under three hundred thousand AnTuTu points. Which is to be expected, because the 732G is, in fact, an easy modification of last year's Snapdragon 730G chip, which, on average, produced similar results. Not a bad average level with no pretensions for anything more.
You already understood everything about memory. Two varieties, 6 + 64 GB and 6 + 128 GB. There is support for memory cards, but, unfortunately, the card slot is combined. Either put in a second SIM card, or put in a memory card. Honestly, annoying. By modern standards, 64 GB is already not much, especially if you play with toys and actively take pictures. So it makes sense to look at the older (and more expensive) model.
The screen is big and for sure beautiful. 6.67 ″, IPS-matrix. High resolution - 1080 × 2400 (395 ppi). It claims a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz sensor polling rate, making the X3 an interesting option for gamers.
The battery is gorgeous, as much as 5160 mAh. Plus 33W fast charging. All good things have to be paid for. In this case, of course, we pay by weight. A smartphone cannot be called a fluff, as much as 215 grams.
Many cameras, 20 MP front, 64 + 13 + 2 + 2 MP rear(main module, wide-angle, depth sensor, macro with fixed focus). The design of the camera block is pretty, a kind of cross in a circle. Poco X3 has already fallen into the hands of reviewers, links to reviews we, as usual, collect on the smartphone page on our website. So you can already get acquainted with the first examples of pictures.
From pleasant little things. As the name suggests, there is an NFC module. Plus, all Russian LTE frequencies are supported. Plus dual band Wi-Fi. No, Wi-Fi 6, it's over, no, roll your lip. But the fingerprint scanner is on the side, as I love.
