Let's start with the display because it is the smartphone element that is responsible for displaying multimedia content, including games. The POCO X3 Pro uses a 6.67-inch diagonal screen that is suitable for dynamic shooters, role-playing cards, sports and strategy. Let's be clear – the higher the diagonal, the better the gameplay experience. Of course, the detail of the image also counts, but in this field, POCO X3 Pro is nothing to be ashamed of. The smartphone offers a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, thanks to which even small elements of the game interface are legible and easy to find. Speaking of readability, I must point out that the display works great even in direct sunlight, which is influenced by the high brightness of 450 nits.
Can a device cost just over a thousand zlotys work as a portable game console? The POCO X3 Pro smartphone proves that it is. All thanks to the high refresh rate of 120 Hz, the efficient Snapdragon 860 processor, fast UFS 3.1 memory and an effective heat dissipation system.
Game developers, when designing a given title, pay special attention to the correct selection of colors. Not every smartphone reflects the original colors in the right way. How is the POCO X3 Pro? Great, as confirmed by our tests with the X-Rite iDisplay Pro colorimeter. The device can cope with the standard sRGB palette. In the subject of the display, it is also worth mentioning the high refresh rate, which is as high as 120 Hz in the title smartphone. Of course, not every production supports them. The more interesting ones are Hitman Go, Real Racing 3 and Assassin's Creed Rebelion. To finish the topic of the display, I will only add that it is protected by a layer of chemically hardened Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Thus, you do not have to worry about the fact that in the heat of the fight with virtual opponents, you will accidentally damage the mentioned element.
Demanding mobile games require power to run smoothly. This is provided by the processor. The POCO X3 Pro uses the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 unit, which consists of one Kryo 485 Gold core clocked at 2.96 GHz, three Kryo 485 Gold cores operating at 2.42 GHz and four Kryo 485 Silver cores (1.78 GHz ). The flagship chip in a smartphone costing just over a thousand zlotys is undoubtedly a huge advantage that has a real impact on enjoying more extensive games dedicated to smartphones. Of course, the processor is not enough. Working memory, data memory speed and graphics also count. Fortunately, here too the POCO X3 Pro rises to the occasion.

The Adreno 640 GPU is integrated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 chip. This is one of the most efficient units that has a positive effect on the smoothness of the game at higher graphics settings. This is important if we want to fully experience moving inside the game world. Buildings, enemies and vehicles in higher resolution with a higher level of details increase the attractiveness of any mobile production. RAM, i.e. operating memory, allows other applications, such as messengers, to run in the background of the game. The key here, however, is the optimization, with which the POCO X3 Pro copes perfectly.
Being mindful, we should stop for a moment with the space for user data. In the case of POCO X3 Pro we are dealing with UFS 3.1 technology, which is a relatively new standard. What does this mean for mobile gamers? First of all, the game's graphics can load faster, which translates into smooth gameplay. In addition, the game itself starts without unnecessary delay. Powerful titles, e.g. from the battle royale genre, are based on an extensive virtual world, thanks to which the smartphone has to cope with loading a large amount of data. To sum up – the newer and more efficient the memory, the higher the comfort.
Smartphone users play their favorite productions not only at home. The fun is often continued in public transport, in waiting rooms or in parks. The problem is that mobile devices used as game consoles have a considerable appetite for battery energy. The POCO X3 Pro is able to provide a long runtime thanks to a 5160 mAh battery that allows for hours of gaming sessions. A typical SOT is 7, 8, and sometimes even 10 or 11 hours. Add to this the ability to charge with 33 W, which takes only an hour, and we get a useful gaming equipment.
POCO X3 Pro is tangible proof that a smartphone designed to play demanding mobile productions does not have to be expensive. Strong technical specifications combined with appropriate optimization of operation make the equipment perfectly cope with resource-consuming titles.

Lastly, I left behind an issue that is rarely talked about and that can have a key impact on enjoying mobile games. It's all about temperature, specifically heat dissipation. For the device, gaming is a demanding activity that causes the components to heat up mercilessly. In the case of some devices, it is associated with a decrease in the comfort of play. The warm design does not allow you to grab the smartphone securely, and without the convenience, we cannot talk about having a good time. I have great news for future POCO X3 Pro users. The equipment effectively dissipates the accumulated heat, so that the hands do not feel the increased work of the components. As you can see, the POCO X3 Pro is a device that will work perfectly as an inexpensive mobile game console.
