I mean, still prefer the POCO M4 Pro 5G because they both have android 11 and there's no difference buying these two! So, at a much lower price, you can have the POCO M4 Pro 5G and have fun with it! Also, the Mediatek Dimensity 810 is actually fine! Compare to its price point, it's better than Samsung Galaxy A22 5G/A23 and it's not as good as the Poco X3 pro, but if you want to buy that phone, you need to pay extra money for that! Also, still, the best phone title goes to these phones: Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 pro/ POCO X3 Pro.
