Xiaomi Poco X3 Spec and Price in Nigeria
Xiaomi Poco X3 Price in Nigeria
The Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC is doing a lot for €229 (101,911.71 Nigerian Naira) to make it stand out from the competition. Its weighty feeling in the hand and garish logos will not be for everyone, but the excellent battery life and fantastic screen will be appreciated by users. The in-OS advertisements are not perfect, but considering the price of the Poco X3 NFC, they are fair. This is one of the best budget smartphones that you can buy right now, overall.
In every way, including the price, the premium flagship smartphones are amazing. In 2020, it is common for flagships to be over $1,000. Thankfully, from Google, OnePlus, Realme, and others, we’ve seen an increase in decent sub-$400 mid-range options. However, Xiaomi’s Poco X3 NFC goes a step further, lowering the price to just 229 euros.
Can you cut the low budget for a better value device? Is the Poco X3 worth buying for 20 percent of the price of a Note 20 Ultra, or 65 percent of the Pixel 4a price?

Xiaomi Poco X3 Design
The Poco X3 NFC does not seem all that motivating on paper. There’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the edge, aluminum on the sides, and a back panel made of polycarbonate. Motorized cameras or sliding mechanisms are not there. In favor of a very daring approach, Xiaomi has, however, deviated from the boring, cookie-cutter budget phone design language.
The rear panel has “POCO” written across the back in big letters. To build a distinctive type, the circular rear camera bump has had its top and bottom shaved off. To make it stand out, too, there is a metallic accent around the camera bump. The colors complement the strong design elements, Shadow Gray and Cobalt Blue, so that it is not so in-your-face. There’s a wide stripe running across the back to top it off.
On the left side is a dual-SIM and microSD card slot. A clicky volume rocker with a power button-fingerprint scanner hybrid below it is shown on the right side. An IR blaster and a microphone are placed on the end. A speaker, a USB-C port, a 3.5 mm headphone port, and a microphone are on the rim. It is easy to identify, very sensitive, and precise to the side-positioned fingerprint scanner. When you use the included case that has a taper where the fingerprint scanner is, it’s even simpler to locate it.
You can tell that the rear panel is made of plastic, for sure. It flexes under pressure and does not come back as cold as a bottle. That said, plastic is much less vulnerable to impact fractures, so it’s not all doom and gloom. The phone feels big and hefty in your hand at 215 g. With our Poco X3 review unit, I didn’t hear any rattles or creaks. Tight and well made, it looked.
The oddly haptic crips add to the experience. Haptics are usually hollow and loose on budget phones like this one. This may not sound all that significant, but bad haptics may make it feel cheaper for a smartphone. With a tight-feeling vibration motor, Xiaomi has done well here.
IP53-rated is the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC, which means it’s mainly covered against dust and water sprays. In heavy rain, don’t expect the system to survive a swim or an extended time. That said, we don’t often see IP ratings for budget devices, so IP53 is a pleasant touch.
The Poco X3 NFC has a neat aesthetic flair on the whole and is well built for a phone worth € 229.
Xiaomi Poco X3 Display
The flat 6.67-inch monitor of the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC is surrounded by fairly thin bezels and has a very small punch-hole at the top in the middle. It is much smaller than the punch-hole of the Galaxy Note 20, which keeps it out of the way and does not distract you while playing games or viewing video.
The wide monitor sports a high refresh rate, making it ideal for consumption of content. In our research, it handled 440-nit sustained peak brightness, which means it is functional in the sun, but does not top any brightness charts. With a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch-polling rate, it’s very simple and sensitive, which makes the phone feel faster than it is.
The monitor of our Poco X3 NFC review device beat the OnePlus Nord and Poco F2 Pro in color error during our checking, but was unable to capture either brightness or gamma error. While it is one of the fastest in its price range and keeps up with more expensive phones in many regions, the Poco X3 NFC does not have the most well-calibrated display.
I couldn’t perceive these nuances in the display calibration using the telephone. The shadowing effect right at the edges of the show is what’s more distracting. The more you keep your phone off-axis, it’s more obvious. This is only a byproduct of the technology of the IPS panel, however.
Overall, the screen in its price range felt vivid, crisp, and very competitive.
The Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732 G, meaning that this is not for you if you’re after a gaming machine. Ever so slightly better than the Pixel 4a’s, the chipset works, but it is still lower-mid-range hardware.
The Poco X3 feels reasonably smooth most of the time, combined with 6 GB of RAM. The user experience is fine as long as you’re not pushing the hardware to its limits. It’s not flawless though. You’ll still experience the occasional stutter, even if it feels seamless most of the time.
The enormous 5,160mAh battery of the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC is not just numbers on a page. This battery got me through two full days on a regular basis. Granted, my four-hour phone day isn’t the toughest of all, but other smaller-battery phones have failed to get me through a full day. Expect the Poco X3 NFC to accommodate your daily use all the way to bedtime for those normally glued to their screens. In our Rocky runtime examination, the Poco X3 NFC outlasted the OnePlus Nord and Pixel 4a by well over 10 percent.
The Poco X3 NFC runs MIUI 12 on top of Android 10, which is a bit of a shame because Android 11 was released only days after the launch of this handset. The Poco brand has not enjoyed the same credibility as OnePlus or Samsung for timely platform updates. The possibility that the Poco X3 NFC will get more than one big update is pretty small.
Xiaomi made a smart decision to concentrate on the Poco X3 NFC ‘s primary, ultra-wide, and selfie cameras. We assume the depth and macro cameras are just there to beef up the spec sheet and are not especially useful as a result. The three important cameras, however, are surprisingly capable of making money.
On both the phone screen and the computer screen, images I took with my Poco X3 NFC review device look pretty good. There seems to be a lot of colour and detail at face value. The standard of these images is appropriate for social media. Upon zooming in, you can start to see smoothing and noise reduction at play. Unless there’s a lot of light, the images can look a little muddy. For a 64MP sensor, there’s not as much sharpness as you’d expect.
