So if you do end up enjoying this video, then please consider subbing to the channel as well as hitting that bell icon. It really does help us out a lot now. These two phones they’re very different right from the design and build down to the internals and hey there’s, a reason for that. The poco x3 pro it’s, like a lean, mean sports car. Okay. I may have exaggerated a bit on the lean part, in fact, it’s. Quite a bit thicker and heavier, and despite the fact that we actually have a plastic body on the poco, not to mention a similar sized battery, so if design and ergonomics are high on your list, the note 10 pro max is probably the phone for you. We have a premium glass sandwich construction, unfortunately it’s only gorilla glass, 5 and that too to the front. The poco does better in that respect, with gorilla glass 6 protecting the display. Both phones also come with an ip53 rating, but that’s all that the x3 has going for it. The note 10 pro max offers better in hand feel a couple variants even coming with a matte finish. The gradient back looks a lot better and there’s no ugly branding either so the race car analogy. It might have fallen a bit flat on its face in the design part. But when it comes to performance, the poco x3 pro dominates everything in the under 20 000 rupee segment inside we have got the snapdragon 860, a refresh of the older snapdragon 855 plus as benchmark results indicate.
The 860 is in a different league, architecturally too seven nanometer versus eight, but in terms of raw power as well. The 732g inside the note 10 pro max even the 750g in the me 10. I can’t really come close. I mean yes. Some may argue that this is a two year old chip and it is, but this is a two year old flagship chip that had been featured in gaming phones like the rog phone too. So while the 732g has its hands full trying to push 120 frames. A second in miui 12 we have the x3 pro that can go max detail and unlimited frame rate in cod mobile, the arduino 618. On the note 10 pro max doesn’t even have that option. So if you want to take full advantage of that, high refresh rate screen get those sweet flicks in then the x3 pro offers the best gaming experience under 20k period. Something else worth mentioning here is that poco has gone with a liquid cool plus technology, which they claim uses a mixture of copper, heat pipes and multi layer graphite sheets in order to keep the snapdragon 860 nice and cool enough about the chip, though let’s take a Look at what else makes the x3 pro such a performance beast. Both devices come with 6 or 8 gigs of lpddr 4x ram, so nothing to separate them there, but we have much faster, ufs, 3.1 storage on the x3 pro the cherry.
On top being the fact that we start with 128 gigs of storage as base compared to 64 gigs of ufs 2.2 on the note 10 pro max to make up for the low base storage, we have a dedicated micro sd card slot on the redmi, while the Poco has to make do with a hybrid sim slot, so gamers and anybody who wants the faster device. This is where you can stop watching the pogo x3 pro it’s won the performance crown, but if you’re interested in a more well rounded phone, then watch on, as most of you already know, the poco x3 pro as well as the redmi note. 10, pro max comes with a 6.67 inch, full hd plus 120 hertz display the main difference here is the tech used in them amoled versus ips. Of course, the usual stand. True, we have inky blacks, puncher, colors and all that. But then the note 10 pro max can also get a whole lot brighter during hdr scenes which, when we combine it with the increased contrast, takes the media. Viewing experience on the oled redmi. Note 10 pro max to the next level i mean as a gamer. This one is very tough for me because i love the smoothness of the x3 pro feeling that 240hz touch sampling rate is amazing, but if i’m being realistic, i only spend a very small fraction of my time gaming on my device and for anything else, i’d prefer Amoled any day now be it a powerful processor or a bright screen.
Everything consumes battery so good thing that both these phones have 5 000 plus milliampere units inside of them. The x3 pro has the slightest of edges in terms of capacity just 140 milliamp hours extra. As far as charging speeds go, both come with 33 watt fast charges inside the box. Now, thanks to the dark mode on the amoled panel, the more efficient seven nanometer architecture and the extra bit of battery use, the xc pro can mostly match the incredible battery life. On the note 10 pro max, despite sporting, a more powerful processor, in fact, during my time, testing out these devices, i ended most of my days with the battery around the 20 mark. So no matter which one you choose, you wouldn’t be disappointed with the battery life. Like battery life, the software here is mostly similar, it’s all miui 12 based on android 11, but there is one key difference adds poco doesn’t serve display hands, and that, for me, is a huge win. Miui 12 is feature rich with powerful hardware like we have here. It runs super smooth as well, remove ads out of it and the experience is top notch, which then leaves one thing on the table: the cameras, but before we dive into that here’s, a quick look at the extras. Both these phones come with stereo speakers, the one on the xc pro, though, have a bit more volume. The x3 pro also has the headphone jack to the bottom, while the note 10 pro max has it what i personally prefer up top other than that these two devices are pretty much the same across the board: a fast fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button.
That and the volume rockers are both to the right sim slot is to the left hybrid on the x3 pro triple sim slot. On the note 10 pro max and ir blaster that’s again at the top cameras are up next and here’s, where the x3 pro kind of falls apart. We have the 48 megapixel sony imx 586, going up against the 108 megapixel samsung hm2. On the note 10 pro max, the dynamic range is better on the redmi. You can see in the shadows of these trees and again how the sun has been overexposed here, zooming in on the billboard. At the back, we can see the writing looks cleaner. On the note 10 pro max, the difference becomes even more clear when we’re comparing 48 versus 108 megapixel snaps with night mode. The note 10 pro max again takes the lead with brighter pictures. We can make more out in the sky here, but the poco isn’t lit. Well enough to see the clouds, i kind of hope that maybe having a wider, f, 1.8 versus f 1.9 aperture would give the x3 pro an advantage, but that doesn’t seem to affect things much. The ultraviolets, though, are more matched both 8 megapixel snappers did an okay job, and that leads us to the placeholders, the macro and depth sensors, except that on the redmi note 10 pro max. The macro camera is a 5 megapixel unit and it actually takes good shots. The xc pro should no chance here way: more detail and vibrant colors on the note 10 pro max, turning it over to the selfie camera and as expected, the 20 megapixel snapper on the x3 pro captures more details on the subject’s face compared to the 16 megapixel.
One on the note 10 pro max, also both phones tend to over expose the background a bit where, especially in portrait mode on the video side of things, both these phones can capture 4k 30 fps video side by side. The dj levels seem similar, although the note 10 pro max does appear brighter. Of course, we have the plethora of options that are available on all xiaomi devices and they are pretty much the same across both so unless you’re really into selfies. The note 10 pro max has the better cameras, basically here’s the deal. If you’re a hardcore, mobile gamer, then the x3 pro should be your pick for pretty much everyone else, including the average guy who may be games once or twice a week. The note 10 pro max is the better d okay, so that sounds simple. Why a huge video to tell just that well that’s, because i thought that even if you’re dead set on getting the poco x3 pro, i mean you really want that 8 series. Processor, you should still see what corners are being cut, get a feel for what you’re missing out on before you pull the trigger guys 19k can get you the poco x3 pro or the redmi note 10 pro max and the decision it’s. Ultimately, yours and with that we come to the end of this video, as always like share subscribe.
