Lol, these comments are hilarious. The Poco X3 Pro was a great purchase, especially seeing how its successors, the X4 and X5, haven't made any notable improvements. I bought it 2 years ago, and it's still running smoothly, especially after I installed a custom ROM. I'm not sure why some of your phones stopped working, but in my experience, the only component that tends to wear out is the battery. Changing the battery isn't tough, but if there's a better value phone available, I'd say go for it.

Yes! but if you want inernet speed, 77G is faster cat 20 vs cat 24.

The 860 is essentially an overclocked 855, so the 778G beating it by a small margin isn't all that impressive, considering it's basically 3 years old. If the 860 were optimized as frequently as the 778G, it would easily outperform the 778G.

Always use the flagship one hence the snapdragon 8++ series for long-term stability 4 to 5 years, if you use the midrange one trust me after 4 to 5 years you will experience some lag and instability, for now, it (778G) is still new maybe 1 year or less than 1 year, let see after 4 to 5 years. Furthermore, for poco users, there are a lot of custom ROM to be flashed such as pixel experience if you are disliking the MIUI. I mean it is poco dude, there are a lot of users and a lot of developers for new custom ROM.

Poco phones are dying in 1-2 years anyway.

Lol 😂 778g is much better than 860 in terms of CPU It saves energy more and is much more stable than the 860 on a game like genshin impact. The 778g is much better than the 860 in all respects. Anyway, the poco x3pro dies after a year of use, and there are other problems with it, such as a fake touch, overheating, or a bad pull, and there are problems. many too.

The Snapdragon 860 might be a flagship chipset but it is devastation after usage of 1 year or so. Poco X3 pro dies completely after average use of 15 months. The CPU gets completely damaged including burnouts of the other ICs. The fabrication needs to be perfected if it has to be powdered in a midrange phone like Poco X3 pro.

ARITRA BANERJEE, this is just nonsense, after two years of using the poco x3 pro, it is still practiced as quickly as at the start. and most other issues like ghost touch and screen lag have been fixed as well. It's not always been a great phone, but your comment is simply not true.

ARITRA BANERJEE, What do u mean buddy? I'm still using the Poco X Pro since the first time I bought it after released and still running good till now. Gaming in Ultra Graphics seems fine for me in many title (MLBB, Marvel Superwar, etc.)

Bimo, Well, I've been using the X3 Pro since 2021, and it died after just 7 months of use. After getting it replaced, I immediately installed a custom ROM on it, Lineage OS 19.1. Despite some ups and downs, I used it for another 1.5 years before it died again. In conclusion, the Poco X3 Pro seems destined to die after 1 to 1.5 years of use. This is likely due to the overclocked SD860, which can't handle the load over extended periods of use.

Poco user, Maybe it is a reason of non official ROM, I know one unit, 2 years already, fast as new, and BTW faster than Samsung S10 and even S22.

These are just numbers, the most important thing is how brands use its worth, 860 is a great chipset but poco x3 pro is just garbage.

Gie, It is not optimized that chipset to the poco, the Xiaomi company it does not do a good job with the software, a Poco x3 pro has not a good performance as a Samsung a52s.

That's basically why I shift from Xiaomi to Samsung. Yes, one might say that Samsung is more expensive and not worth it with the specs than Xiaomi, but other than hardware, my personal experience is that Samsung outperforms Xiaomi in many ways, especially software. Good hardware alone does nothing if a company couldn't optimize it to provide the best user experience.

Zhun, Yeah, I've had poco x3 pro for a long time, and I also got the a52s for my work phone. In the games I play the poco was hands down faster, but I did run custom rom. Prolly why I didn't experience the slowdown either.
