Poco, Xiaomi’s sub-brand, has just introduced its newest phone, the Poco X3 NFC.
As you might have noticed, the “NFC” term’s inclusion suggests that the device was built with a particular audience in mind.
Just like other Poco devices, the X3 NFC appears to be a decent proposition from a quality/price perspective.
About The Device
The phone is far from subtle. It is big and bulky, recording a 9.4mm thickness and 215g weight, with a severe camera bump, but that is expectable for devices with big screens, giant batteries, and massive camera setup.
The display is approximately 6.7-inch with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1080p resolution.
It is an LCD, which means that the contrast isn’t as great as on an OLED, but that’s not that big of a deal.
However, the panel choice also implies that the fingerprint sensor is on the power button instead of integrated into the phone’s display.
The screen, by no means looks unappealing. It is crisp and pleasant to watch. Similar displays can be found on phones twice the price of the Poco X3 NFC.
Chipset And More
The Poco X3 NFC is the first device to run on Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 732 chipset, a beefed-up version of the 730G from Google’s Pixel 4A.
The device is compatible with LTE, but there’s no 5G support, unfortunately, and it includes 6GB of RAM.
There are 64GB and 128GB variants, and the device has a built-in microSD card slot, so you can extend the storage, regardless of the option you went for.
The battery is one of the device’s most substantial aspects – it is a 5,160 unit and is capable of USB-C fast charging at 33W.
According to Xiaomi, that should last for over two days of normal usage.
