Poco’s new Poco X3 has been launched in India with some specifications different from the Global variant. The new device is standing up to be a competition to the RealMe’s 7 Pro that was launched a couple of weeks back.
Let’s put them against each other to see which one wins the fight!
Poco X3 has a 6.67-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display with 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz sampling rate and a resolution of 2400 x 1080. The Realme 7 Pro on the other hand has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED FHD+ display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and 60Hz refresh rate.
Comparing the both, the Poco X3 definitely wins because of the better refresh rate and touch sampling rate considering both of them have the same resolution. The AMOLED display on Realme 7 Pro might give you better colours and brightness, but you will get way more smoother experience while using the Poco X3 than the realme 7 Pro.
The Poco X3 is powered by the Snapdragon 732G paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of Storage. The Realme 7 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 720G with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB of Storage. Both the devices support expandable storage upto 256GB.
The Poco X3 will perform a tad bit better than the Realme 7 Pro as it is equipped with a better processor from Qualcomm. Both the processors are gaming focused, meaning that both will perform nicely while gaming. Storage and RAM shouldn’t be an issue on both of them.
The Poco X3 runs on MIUI 12 based on Android 10, whereas the Realme 7 Pro runs in RealMe UI 1.0. The winner here depends on the choice of the user whether he/she likes heavily skinned MIUI or the ColorOS based Realme UI.
One thing to note is that the Realme 7 is slated to receive Android 11 soon with Realme UI 2.0 while there is no sign of Android 11 for any Xiaomi devices other than the Mi 10 Pro and Mi 10.
The Realme 7 Pro has a quad-camera setup with the main sensor being a Sony IMX682 64MP sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor with f/2.3 aperture and 119-degree FOV, a 2MP black & white portrait sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP 4cm macro lens.
The Poco X3 on the other hand has the same 64MP Sony IMX682 Primary sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide sensor with 119-degree FOV and f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP 4cm macro lens.
The main difference between these sensors will be between the wide-angle sensors as the Poco X3 has a slightly better wide-angle sensor. But it doesn’t always depend on the megapixels. We will also have to see how the camera application and software has been optimized for the post processing of the photo, because of which even if the main sensor is the same, the final photo may be better on either of them.
The Poco X3 comes with a 6000mAh battery with 33W fast charging and the Realme 7 Pro comes with 4500mAh battery with 65W fast charging support.
While the Realme 7 Pro will charge significantly faster than the Poco X3, the Poco X3 will give you way more battery backup than the Realme 7 Pro. So it now depends on the user if he wants a bigger battery or a faster charging experience.
The Poco X3 is priced at Rs 16,999 for 6GB/64GB variant, Rs 18,499 for 6GB/128GB variant, and Rs 19,999 for 8GB/128GB variant.
The Realme 7 Pro is priced at Rs 19,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB of internal storage, while the 8GB RAM + 128GB option is priced at Rs 21,999.
The Poco X3 here definitely offers better value for money with the same camera setup, performance and a better battery (even if the charging speed is lower).
