Doesn't seems like much improvement in specs contrary to their hypos

I wanted to know if I made a bad decision purchasing my Redmi Note 9S when it came out a few months ago. Seeing new ads for the Poco X3 on Facebook got me curious. Good to know my purchase isn't technically a waste. Poco X3 costs around $20 more for the same RAM and storage configuration as my Note 9S with a very narrow gap in performance. Still worth it.

The main advantage of the 732G in poco x3 is the 120hz screen which is well worth it for the price.
