Poco X3 Pro hit the market on March 24, 2021. And this is the phone that was all hyped up because of the fact that it's set to be the Poco F1 successor. And that's because it's all about the chipset. In fact, this is still the only smartphone that comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor in the BDT. 30,000 price range in Bangladesh which already makes the Poco X3 Pro a great value for money. But time has changed and it’s a whole new year now. That leaves us one question, “Is the Poco X3 Pro worth buying in 2022?” Let’s find out!

Design: So starting off with the design, the Poco X3 Pro looks a lot like the Poco X3 that launched in 2022, but there is a slight difference. The Poco X3 Pro has a plastic back that's kind of divided into three parts. The middle with the big Poco logo has a glossy finish, while the sides have a matte finish. The Poco X3 Pro feels a little strange because there is a certain friction between the matte and the glossy finish. Apart from that, like the Poco X3, this is a big and slightly hefty phone, reason is the obvious, because it's the Pro version. 9.4 mm thickness and 215 grams of weight make that pretty clear. The Poco X3 Pro, like the Poco F1 of the past, has a pretty basic functional design. There's a very rare notification Led light and IR blaster on the top. The headphone jack is on the bottom, and the dual micro sim slot is a hybrid slot.

You also have the IP53 rating for some splash resistance. The Poco X3 Pro comes with dual stereo speakers. One speaker at the bottom and one speaker at the top in the earpiece. So it's all there. And if you're wondering about the speaker performance, the speakers here are quite loud, and the secondary speaker in the earpiece offers a fairly good amount of depth.
