To make things easier for you we have done all the hard work for you and have picked out few competitors of POCO X3 Pro. Samsung Galaxy A51, OPPO F19 PRO and Realme 6 PRO are our picks in comparison to POCO X3 PRO. All these phones are in the same league and cost under PKR 50,000.
POCO X3 PRO Better in performance
POCO X3 pro leads the pack in terms of processor with its top-notch Qualcomm computing chip, the Snapdragon 860. Behind it is Realme 6 Pro embodying Snapdragon 720G, then Samsung Galaxy A51 embodying Exynos 9611 and at last OPPO F19 PRO embodying MediaTek Helio P95. POCO X3 PRO is the only smartphone in the market as of now that utilizes this powerful chipset. With a 71% faster Kryo 485 CPU, 145% faster Adreno 640 GPU, 192% more powerful AI Engine and 45% Higher AnTuTu benchmark results its best to say that snapdragon 860 is one of the leading 4G flagship processor in 2021.
Besides having a clearly better processor there are a lot of minor upgrades that result in the overall performance boost. The Pro features enhanced flagship-level UFS 3.1 storge speed. The enhanced UFS 3.1 memory technology improves the launching and loading of apps and games leading to lag free experience.
Just like the memory speed the protection on the large front display is also better than all the competitors mentioned above. The POCO X3 PRO has a gorilla glass 6 protection in comparison to Gorilla Glass 3 of Samsung Galaxy A51 and gorilla glass 5 of OPPO F19 and Realme 6 PRO. Gorilla glass 6 has two times better scratch performance and can protect the display from a drop of 1.6m onto a tough and rough surface.
POCO X3 PRO features the liquid cool technology 1.0 plus to hold the phones temperature down. With its multiple layer graphite D5 copper hat pipe and up to 6-degree Celsius processor colling you can enjoy long session of endless gaming.
Another POCO X3 PRO spec that Is better than other is the large battery. Being the only one to offer a 5000mAh plus batter it leaves it competitors far behind. It is advertised by POCO that the battery can support 11 hours of gaming, 18 hours of videos, and 110 hours of music on a single charge. The battery also supports 33W fast charging, that recharges the 5160mAh lithium battery in no time. It takes 30 minutes for the battery to recharge to its half potential and 59 minutes to completely recharge.
Samsung A51 features an Amoled Display just like the other competitors. POCO X3 PRO might not provide Amoled but it offers a larger 6.67 inches screen. The large display features a 120 Hz refresh rate with the dynamic switch support from 50HZ/60Hz/90Hz/120Hz. With the 120Hz refresh rate you will never miss a beat and can experience smooth gaming and smooth swiping. Another perk of the display that will enhance the gaming experience is the 240 Hz touch sample rate. The 240Hz touch sample rate decreases the touch delay rate providing responsive and sensitive gaming controls.
