Xiaomi furnished AndroidHeadlines with a survey unit of the Poco X3 GT in Stargaze Black tone. This survey was composed in the wake of utilizing the gadget for over 7 days. The telephone is running MIUI 12.5 on top of Android 11 with the June 2021 security fix. Xiaomi didn't have any contribution to the audit and is seeing this survey simultaneously as you. 

Poco X3 GT is the most recent cell phone from Xiaomi's worldwide image which has been delivering one telephone after one more in 2021. Prior in spring, we explored the great Poco F3 and Poco X3 Pro which was a phenomenal development to the previous Poco X3 NFC. 

With the Poco X3 GT, it appears to be that Xiaomi chose to graph a somewhat unique course from the earlier X3 gadgets. The round camera exhibit at the back is gone and we currently get a rectangluar cluster in the upper left corner. This design is more 2021 yet in addition more nonexclusive glancing as I would see it. 

Poco kept a ton of the X3 parts in the more current X3 GT however rather than a Snapdragon this time around there is a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 series processor. The majority of different changes other than the camera cluster and processor are minor yet at the same time bring about a very proficient handset. Now in Poco's excursion, it has the advantage of glancing through Xiaomi's extremely enormous parts receptacle to blend and match different parts to hit the right execution to value proportion. Furthermore, the Poco X3 GT is fundamentally an immediate yield of this corporate parts canister assaulting exercise. 


So we should plunge into the full survey to check whether every one of the different changes by Poco/Xiaomi amount to make the Poco X3 GT deserving of your well deserved cash or not. 

Poco X3 GT Unboxing 



Now, all of Poco gadgets have the comfortable dark external box with a yellow addition. The addition has a TPU case, SIM apparatus, earphone jack dongle, and some desk work. Underneath the addition is the Stargaze Black Poco X3 GT. For some strange Marketing/PR reason, we commentators never get the beautiful units for audit. It is consistently the dark shading model no matter what. Beneath the telephone are a weighty USB-C charging link and a 67W quick charging block. Since this is a pre-creation unit there was no production line applied film screen defender yet I presume the retail units will have one. 

Presently that there is a 67W charging block in the container you should not carry around a different charger for your PC or Chromebook so that is very pleasant. 


Configuration is currently more like Redmi Note 10 series 

Poco X3 GT AH HR Design 

The Poco X3 GT loses the round camera cluster which was novel to the X3 series. Likewise gone is the shading moving backplate with the hashed lines. All things being equal, we have a rectangular camera exhibit that is comparative in plan language to the one on the Redmi Note 10 Pro.

I do like the shading moving polished backplate with a light to dim inclination start to finish. Another fascinating component is a sparkle that beginnings at about midway and proceeds towards the base finish of the backplate. This outcomes in like stars in the sky at sundown type look – you do need to look close for this impact however. Be that as it may, I think this is the reason Poco calls this shading Stargaze Black. 



There are a couple of different changes contrasts contrasted with the X3 Pro also. The finger impression scanner/power button is presently raised as opposed to being recessed on the right-hand side rail. On the top, we actually get the IR blaster and the subsequent receiver however there is additionally a speaker grille. The left-hand side rail actually has the double SIM card plate space. The huge change on the base rail is the evacuation of the earphone jack. 

Poco X3 GT AH HR HW2 


Poco X3 GT has a similar 120Hz LCD show with a middle opening punch for the selfie camera. There is anyway Gorilla Glass Victus presently ensuring the front showcase which is a decent update. 

Poco X3 GT AH HR HW9 

There is IP53 sprinkle insurance worked in which is nice to find in a lower mid-range gadget. A 67W quick charging block is a pleasant extra. I figure Poco made a sensible showing of making the changes – additional speaker grille, standard camera cluster format, Gorilla Glass Victus to give some examples. I don't embrace the evacuation of the earphone jack however with all due respect, they do incorporate the earphone jack dongle free of charge. Generally speaking the plan changes result in a quieted however incredibly practical cell phone. 


Show is incredible however Poco ought to have gone AMOLED course 

Poco X3 GT AH HR Display 

Recently, the majority of the Xiaomi gadgets have a high revive rate AMOLED show. So getting the Poco X3 GT with a similar high invigorate rate LCD board as the Poco X3 Pro was a bit of a killjoy. 

The presentation is currently marginally more modest 6.6 inches vis 6.67 inches. Be that as it may, we actually get 1080 x 2340 FHD+ goal (395ppi) and HDR10 similarity. The IPS LCD screen has a versatile 120Hz revive rate with a higher 240Hz touch examining rate. There is a choice in the settings to flip the invigorate rate down to 60Hz for expanded battery life. For this audit, I left the presentation revive rate at 120Hz. 


We should discuss some sure parts of the LCD show. This is a HDR10-viable 120Hz revive rate IPS LCD with very great shading exactness. What's more, it gets bounty splendid for sensibly great outside perceivability and a respectable differentiation proportion of 1400:1. In any case, next to each other you can perceive how much better the 90Hz AMOLED show board on the Mi 11 Lite is which is generally a similar cost as the Poco X3 GT. 

I think the presentation is fine overall however Poco ought to have selected the AMOLED board in a cell phone bearing the GT moniker. 

MediaTek Dimensity 1100 conveys incredible execution on the Poco X3 GT 

Poco X3 GT AH HR Performance 


One major change from the past X3 gadget is the processor controlling the Poco X3 GT. Gone is the Snapdragon 860 and rather we get the new MediaTek Dimensity 1100. Nonetheless, the change from Snapdragon 860 to the Dimensity 1100 doesn't bring about any misfortune from a benchmark execution point of view. 

Talking about benchmarks, on AnTuTu (v8) the X3 GT scores 506800 versus 453223 for the X3 Pro. While on GeekBench (v5.1) multi-center score of 2892 is higher than that of the X3 Pro's 2575. So really there is a sensible knock in execution. Credit to Poco for knocking the processor execution with this new emphasis. 

Fortunately there is no adjustment of the GFXBench (ES 3.1 onscreen) test where the X3 GT actually gets 38fps very much like its archetype. So you will keep on getting great execution when playing PUBG or Genshin Impact. 

Capacity is still UFS 3.1 which is something worth being thankful for and the base model accompanies 128GB which is somewhat fundamental since the miniature SD card opening is no more. My survey unit accompanied the 256GB stockpiling alternative. I recommend that you get the higher stockpiling form in the event that you as of now utilize a miniature SD card. 

In outline, you improve execution presently yet lose the alternative for expandable capacity so in general things are a wash as far as execution as I would see it. 

MIUI 12.5 is acceptable however a few eccentricities actually remain 

Poco X3 GT AH HR Software 

My audit unit is running MIUI 12.5.2 which is Android 11 and has the June 2021 security fix. There is a broad measure of Google reconciliation which works flawlessly on the Poco X3 GT. Telephone, Messages, Contacts, Google Discover Feed are altogether indistinguishable from my every day driver which is a Pixel 4a 5G. 

Of course, there's a smidgen of bloatware yet you can uninstall each and every application with no issue which is decent. I would prefer Poco not put any undesirable applications yet we'll save that for another day. Dissimilar to some past Poco gadgets, I didn't experience too many irritating advertisements inside the UI. 

There is an application cabinet and on the Poco gadgets, MIUI naturally arranges your applications into classes. The primary class is 'All', which means it has each and every application on the telephone. Then, at that point follow Communication, Entertainment, Photography, Tools, New, and Business. In the event that you don't care for this you can alter these classifications or even cripple them by and large. I just overlooked this angle during my survey period. 

Notices on MIUI 12 as a matter of course mimick what the iPhones do. You access them similarly as on an iPhone, pull down from the upper left piece of the screen for the Notification Center, pull down from the appropriate for the Control Center. On the off chance that you like the Android form look, it is smarter to simply cripple the Control Center. 

Programming savvy there are a bigger number of alternatives than you will at any point need or use yet Poco gives you enough choices with the goal that you can change MIUI however much you might want. On the off chance that you as of now have a Xiaomi/Poco gadget, you will feel totally comfortable with MIUI 12.5. 

Battery life is as yet magnificent in spite of a marginally more modest cell limit 

Poco X3 GT AH HR Battery 

There is a 5000 mAh battery locally available which is marginally more modest than the 5160 mAh cell on the Poco X3 Pro. Be that as it may, the Dimensity 1100 is a 6nm processor which brings about great force effectiveness. 

During my survey period, I reliably saw Screen-on-Time of 6+ hours which meant charging the telephone each and every other day. On days where there was a bit really gaming the telephone actually endured an entire day with no issue.
