On the left is x3 NFC and on the right x3 Pro.
Very interesting decision for x3 pro.

There is copper tape, instead of metallic plate.
Plus, you see that thermal paste is only on memory (3x pro).
If they don't use paste and there is not enough pressure then heat will not be dissipated by pipe.

And here you can see how much they use thermal paste between tape and pipe.
3 small lines on CPU and a bit for memory.

Just look how much more contact surface is on x3 NFC.
Now i understand why x3 pro is so hot.

If your x3 pro is not hot, then you are lucky (there is enough pressure/paste).
If you are not lucky, then idk. It's faulty phone.

I may now know the reason behind the heating that has been plaguing the x3 pro community since the launch.

Reason: Poor heat dissipation cause by lack of thermal paste on the top of SoC/Snapdragon 860.

Explanation: After thoroughly looking for answers in 4pda, xda, reddit and watching poco x3 pro teardown videos and comparing them to x3 nfc and f3. I am confident to say that the reason behind poco x3 pro heating is that xiaomi "Intentionally" did not applied thermal paste to poco x3 pro, maybe because of technical limitations of putting a sd 860 on a supposedly a motherboard designed to hold sd 732g.

In my theory this is a planned obsolescence done by xiaomi. No thermal paste means no contact to the copper plate which the copper plate will transfer the heat to heatsink(or the "Liquid Cooling System" jargon). The purpose of the heatsink is to move away or distribute the heat through out the body but after watching many videos most heat is centered around the upper right side behind phone where the SoC/Snapdragon 860 lies.

So that is it, that is the reason for x3 pro heating.
Thank you coming for my TedTalk

Redmi-Cube, 12 Oct 2021How can we avoid purchasing tianma panel?You can't. But chances of getting huaxing panel is higher with 8/256 variant. Mine is 8/256 and has huaxing panel.

Ray, 13 Oct 2021yes, same real life game performance as the F3Not exactly. F3 performs slightly better than the X3 pro.

Is Xiaomi dead or something? They are not paying attention to their successful smartphones, almost everyone facing ghost touches which is horrible and they are just focusing on launching new devices again and again, if you can't make stable smartphones then don't make...

Ray, 13 Oct 2021yes, same real life game performance as the F3It can't be the same because there is a noticable difference between sd 860 and sd 870... Sd 870 should perform way better

Let's say your friend own this phone then ask him if his phone function without problems. If he said yeah than you be good then and vice versa. Also I'm not saying any of these is the display fault but sometimes miui is just the main problem.

I don't think this phone really is that bad. Most people complain about it's display (ghost touch) but in my country,very little of complain were made. Maybe,(maybe) it's not the UI fault but rather the hardware used in certain market. Let's just say that in India, poco uses different display manufacturing and in the UK, the display manufacturing is also different. Now depending on your luck the display might function normally as it should be but for the worst case scenario, it didn't and this is what actually happened to millions of poco x3 pro users. So, to avoid having this problem

have both the F3 and The X3 Pro 256G variant both.
F3 Pros
thinner and lighter
way faster charging when using the same charger from the X3 Pro
always on display is nice to have
easier to handle.
Better Battary life

Cons:
low audio output through the USB-C when connecting headphones.
the X3 Pro mops the floor with the F3 Audio wise.

X3 Pro Pros:
As I mentions, the Audio experience of the X3 Pro is a class of its own...whether
with the built in speakers or when connecting headphones.
with headphones, you can feel that there is a great amp hiding in there, volume levels are super high with minimal distortion, when using Poweramp, I can get way superior audio levels compared to the F3.
when using speakers, sound is way fuller compared to the thin sound of the F3, my guess is that the extra thickness of the X3 Pro helps produce richer sound
screen is great on both, both have punchy and lively colors.
X3 Pro feels more sturdy.
SD card is great to have.

X3 Cons
Thick and heavy, that's it.

My pick-X3 Pro

I live in the middle of South East Asia and we received good amount of sunlight every year which mean the temperature here is around 26>30°C and I think it make sense that the phone would probably heat up more. There's only one solution to prevent heating and it's by using aero cooler. I have one (from my blackshark 4) and I've use it on my poco x3 pro and trust me, there's no lag at all and not even once I encountered stuttering. Battery life also improve since the phone battery is much more efficient when it's cool.

Between plastic back and glass back which is heat resistant ie less heat feel during playing games.
