Sentiment Score[*] 72%
Reviewers from gsmarena have found the following[***]:
The Poco X3 runs MIUI 12 with Android 10 underneath, and that fact is a dead giveaway for how Xiaomi treats its phones in terms of software support. Most of the new features are delivered via MIUI updates, and Xiaomi is good at issuing those even for old phones. As all Poco devices, the X3 has the Poco Launcher built into the software, and not Xiaomi's nameless option. The fact that DND and Silent mode share some settings with third party apps is very bad.

Xiaomi's Poco X3 is a big, heavy phone with a big 6.67in screen. It has a quad camera setup on the back, though the main lens is the star of the show. On the front you'll find a 20Mp, f/2.2 selfie camera which also delivers much better results than most competitors at the same price.

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Xiaomi's Poco smartphone sub-brand has made a real impact with its ability to offer eyebrow-raising performance at a low price. At just £199, the Poco X3 NFC looks to do the same for the budget brigade. The phone sports a hugely prominent camera module, which the case mitigates with a large circular lip. Xiaomi's MIUI 12 skin is perfectly pleasant to use day to day.
