Weekly poll: is the Poco X3 NFC great value for money?

13 September 2020
The first phone with a Snapdragon 732G chipset has a lot going for it at a price of €230. That said, it's only an incremental upgrade over the Poco X2.

The Guesser Leakster, 13 Sep 2020Yoy don't understand, don't you? I am saying this... moreI have the Note 9S which is about the same as the X3 except the display and NFC. Also have the Poco F2 Pro and i must say, the F2 Pro feels more premium. Performance wise it's very obvious, not that the 720G is a bad SoC, it's pretty good when i first got it compared to my Galaxy S7 Edge, it performs way better. Then when i bought the Poco F2 Pro at about 100 USD more it definitely made me regret getting my Note 9S cos i had only intended to get 1 phone but while it's value for money, the F2 Pro feels like i have a flagship back again. and it will also age better. For 100 USD, if it last 2 years longer, it for sure is a better buy, even compared to the X3 NFC.

dbjungle, 13 Sep 2020This phone is mostly the same as the Poco X2 / Redmi K30. ... moreExcept K30 has huge ugly selfie cancer...camera.
And lacks stereo speakers.

So X3 is much better option even at first glance (Due to the selfie canc...camera).

This phone is mostly the same as the Poco X2 / Redmi K30. Buying a Redmi K30 5G or K30 Racing would be a better value imo.

kiasunkiasi, 13 Sep 2020those ads settings can be turn off seriously did you use a... moreNope, haven't used it before, ads can be disabled but the whole idea of having a phone with UI full of ads into it doesn't appeal to me, I'd rather spend more money for an ad free phone, but that's just me. The X3 is incredible value though, but I'll skip

IMHO it's an upgraded version of Redmi Note 9 Pro (Global model ). For the asked price it offers a lot. About ads whining - they can be disabled with just a few taps. There is a lot of guides over the web. Other big plus is that there are a lot of custom ROMS for Xiaomi phones.

In fact I haven't seen a single ad on my phone.

To disable ads upon setup, you have to scroll down and then there is a prompt that makes you think the phone won't work if you disable it. If that isn't sneaky I don't know what is.

Something good always has a price.. If you aren't paying for the phone.. Somebody else is.. Either the overworked but puny paid chinese workers.. Child slave mining the component minerals.. Or environmental impact caused by cheap waste handling(just throw into the ocean).. Anyways always invest your money in a company with clear and clean standard of manufacturing process.. Not only you invest in the phone you use but also invest in the future of the world

I would like answers from those 433 people who think there are better VFm for 200EUR, please provide them, because I call you bullshit on that. You can't get better VFM for 200EUR than this.
