Poco X3 NFC, analysis: this is the new king of the mid-range

Xiaomi unveils the POCO X3 NFC with a 120Hz display, Qualcomm Snapdragon  732G, and 64MP quad camera

From time to time a mobile manufacturer can shake the market by putting on sale a mobile phone that seeks to take down its rivals with good performance and a tight price.

In Spain, we saw this in 2013 with the launch of the Motorola Moto G, a device created under the tutelage of Google. Behind him have come others and in 2020 much have to change things for which this year's mid-range mobile title does not fall into the Pocophone POCO X3 NFC.

The 64 GB internal memory model is released at 229 euros and the 128 GB to 269 euros. In a promotional way, we can buy them at 199 and 249 euros on the occasion of their launch.

Poco X3 Price in India, Specifications, Features Launch Live Updates

A peculiar and common design at the same time
The first thing that catches the eye when taking the mobile is its weight and construction. It is very reminiscent of the redmi Notes of the parent company, well-built mobiles that denote the price range in which they move. The same goes for weight, high but justified by its battery.

The rear opts for plastic, leaving the glass for the front (with Gorilla Glass 5) and the metal for the perimeter frame.

In hand, the POCO X3 NFC is an ergonomic but somewhat wide terminal. Personally, it doesn't become a problem, but not everyone has big hands.

The front is almost all screen, with normal frames, not especially thin and not especially thick. At the top of the screen, we have a perforation for the camera, although it is not especially large, something to highlight in the mid-range.

In the left frame, we have a double tray for two SIM cards or a SIM and a microSD memory card. If we look at the right frame we see the volume and power buttons, in which the fingerprint sensor is also housed.

At the top are a microphone, an infrared emitter to control devices such as TVs or players, and a hole that serves as a second speaker. At the bottom are the USB-C port, headphone jack, and main speaker, along with the main microphone.

A mobile phone to play... within what's expected
In the presentation of the X3, the brand leaders placed a lot of emphasis on the capabilities of this mobile when it comes to playing. There was talk of a high refresh rate of the screen, the use of a new processor, the Snapdragon 732G, or software functions designed for it.

That's all true but we can't lose sight of the talk on a mobile phone of just over 200 euros.

I say this because in the day to day it is true that we have been able to play without problems titles like Honkai Impact Third, one of the most demanding ones that we can install. However, the feeling is not even the same as on more expensive mobiles. Much more expensive, yes.

Some readers have asked me on Twitter about the comparison between this mobile and the OnePlus Nord. They're mobiles with pretty low prices, and that shows something in the performance.

Great refresh rate, but that's not the only thing
A few months ago, not even years ago, having a mobile with a refresh rate of 120 Hz was unthinkable outside not of high-end, but of gaming mobiles. This has changed in 2020 and the POCO X3 is the best example.

This is possibly the most economical terminal with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. However, we are talking about 120 Hz on an LCD panel, not OLED; and that's quite noticeable in normal use.

I do not want to say that we do not notice the difference between 60 Hz and 120 Hz on this mobile, because it does notice, but it does not give us the same feeling as on other OLED screens: It should be noted that the refresh rate is not the only relevant thing on a screen.

The most intense colors, the darkest blacks, of OLED panels are missing, but we can't forget what kind of mobile we're analyzing. Let's be realistic.

On the positive side, we highlight the presence of HDR support, which makes the movies and videos that we watch with this technology allow us to forget for a moment that appreciates an organic panel like OLED.
