This phone has minor issues which trouble u like a mosquito. Face recognition not so great even finger print unlocking.
Has problem while using USB tethering.
Internet gets disconnected every two minutes.
This is horrible. I don't know. When they are going to rectify this problem.

Please gsm arena don't use Gospel word in here

Again, the back is plastic and the frame is aluminum for the NTH time.

The original review says it all and don't you think I can distinguish aluminum from plastic?

"The front panel is a flat piece of Gorilla Glass 5, then comes the glossy aluminum frame, and finally - the plastic back we've shown already."

I'm using since January 2021. Not facing any kind of issue. No lag no overheating, no major bugs, decent cameras, battery life and charging speed is very good. Everything is working fine. Keep the price in mind. Some people complain about LCD panel, but they are not looking the price how much can you get in 250 USD. And the LCD of poco x3 is not bad, it is one of best in low midrange segment. I played games 3-5 hours daily mostly PUBG COD and A9. Not facing overheating. So plz stop complaining, better buy flagship models of samsung and apple if you are expecting flagship performance. In that price you can buy poco x3 for whole family... Stop misleading others.

There are in fact people, that need NFC much more than they need 120hz display.
120Hz display is a kinda of a gimmick, honestly, while NFC is an actually useful, even necessary feature.
If every phone had NFC, just like every phone has Bluetooth - one wouldn't need to mention it. But unfortunately, it isn't the case.

Why don't you drop your phone sideways to realize that the frame is made out of aluminum and not plastic as the reviewer mentioned in his review? It is aluminum and only morons can't distinguish aluminum from plastic.

I have this phon for 3 months, there is some bugs in camera when you want change to ultrawide in pro setting

Bought this phone to use as a cheap backup for the gym/work. Seemed a decent phone, smooth software, good cameras and great battery but I simply could not stand the ghosting. Most of my use is scrolling through text and while in motion all text just bleeds into an unreadable blur. Swapped it for a Moto 5g and much prefer the screen and more stock android software.

How is this long-term review, not any different from day one review.🙄 Though you mentioned the X3 pro and F3, which came out later, are the only contenders to the X3 despite the price difference. Quite difficult to choose among the three if budget can be stretched to the F3. The X3 Pro is better for gaming but might not matter?
