Mr.Amin, 19 Feb 2021I'm on 12.0.7Same, why there's no new updates for poco x3 nfc. Day by day my curiosity is increasing.
Total Battery Timing on heavy use: 17 hours 41 minutes (from 100% to 10%)
SOT: 10h 45min
Standby: 6h 56min
My usage: (15-25% Brightness with 60Hz Refresh Rate - without Battery Saver mode.)
PUBG: 3 hours, at *60FPS on HD with Shadow*.
Facebook: 2 hours.
TikTok: 1h 20min.
Other apps: WhatsApp, Messenger, Foodpanda, Video Player, Music Player, Camera.
I think it's very good given my heavy use. I didn't hold back.
1. This battery drain is from 100% to 10% - not 0%.
2. I could make it even better by enabling "Battery Saver" mode, which should make a notable difference.
3. I think I lost 1% battery every 2 hours on Standby (not confirmed).
4. Once battery drops to 10%, it activates a hidden battery saving feature which restricts gaming performance significantly.
Nice phone, good battery.
Only a shame it doesn't seem to have a consistent Bluetooth Condon with my Galaxy Watch.
Even after I changed the battery saver setting settings and other permissions.
Bakry68, 14 Feb 2021Will Poco x3 nfc be updated to miui 12.5? If so, when? I'm on 12.0.7
Just opened a box with x3 nfc. After powering it on there is wifi connection set up screen at some point. But somehow i cannot connect to my home router. Other devices work well with it, but poco says: no to the right password. Can anyone help me?

I basically turn off everything I don't have a use for as soon as I buy a phone. But I'm a bit of geek, so I know what most of the things do or how they'll impact the phone.
Also, if you're facing problems after a specific update, it's recommended to back up your data & perform hard reset on your phone.
This fixes most issues caused by updates.
Poco X3 user, 18 Feb 2021May I know which apps causes that and are safe to uninstall? I come from Android One platform,... more4 hours is extremely low. I think you've turned on too many features & probably sensors as well.
Please review all settings & turn off as much of those as possible. Don't use Xiaomi accounts & such either. Things like that run in background, keep scanning your phone and may perform some automated tasks that can *collectively* drain a lot of battery.
An alternate solution is installing All in One Toolbox app old version (from 1-1.5 years ago). You can find it on apkmirror probably.
Go to its settings & turn off everything, but turn on "Auto Boost at Screen On". This solution fixed horrible battery drain of my friend's Samsung.
As for uninstalling apps, you can safely uninstall every app that phones allow you to uninstall. Just keep the ones you use. The ones you can't uninstall, try disabling them or clear their data so they're less likely to run in background.
You can reinstall them later from Playstore if required.
Arne Berg, 18 Feb 2021Im an old man, 69 years ! Gaming is not to importent for me. Ok sound is, watching youtube is,... moreHello, Sir. I haven't updated the phone since I bought it, but I haven't faced any issues thus far - especially, no issues with lag at all.
The display very rarely & only slightly stutters while using Facebook, but not otherwise - especially not while reading text off some place.
One thing I should mention is that although its speakers are stereo & support 24bit/192kHz, I think it doesn't have the best amplifier (or maybe speaker). As Gsmarena says in their review, it isn't good at playing medium tones - and I felt it too.
I still enjoy its quality & stereo effect, but mid-tones is 1 shortcoming I thought must affect your usage experience.
Another thing is that since you mainly use phone for YouTube/videos in general, I think you should aim for AMOLED/OLED displays.
They're capable of showing much better colors than IPS display phones, as they can display colors in range of 1 billion. While IPS shows color in range of 16M. (averaging). They also show true black colors while IPS just uses "very dark gray" instead of black in videos.

You either have absolute no clue what's being discussed, or you just have disastrous comprehensive skills.

It's much m... moreR u dumb 50fps in low graphics of g90t, really? Sir try checking benchmarks, and to inform u the kryo cores that sd732g r also 2-a76/6-a55 which is the same for note8 pro. Why do u also limit comparing phones to their hardware. U should also factor their OS optimization if its buggy, support updates, etc.
I would also like to point out what u said about mi10 and iphone x. In the first place they should never be compared to midrangers, cause they r for all around use wether its for gaming, multitasking or for photography. It's much premium even if a year old than ur new shiny phone x3.
About the dislay quality im dumbfounded of ur ignorance. Ever heard of the feature HDR10, do note that even if there r diff types of display out there, are also different manufacturers of it and the best in the market are (1)samsung; provides display even for apple (2) Lg; even if no one is usually interested in their phone the quality of it is 3rd to none (3) last is xiaomi; even their mid rangers' screen r very satisfying.
Heh what u said about pubg, its a dumb game for trying out ur soc limit tbh. Sd732g features r 2019, the only 2020 thing about it is AI and build node*because it was popularly used for midrangers soc. Another thing I noticed was u using gfx tool with shadows (on)whats to boast about that? Recently released SOC's have 5g integrated modem and also support for ray tracing* which soon will be available to android games. Not to mention gfx tool never messes with ur kernels it only unlocks u feature the game devs forgot ur device to support.

Just uninstall useless apps that come with the phone.. some of those apps drain the battery & running in the background and eventually slow down the phone that already heavy with Miui.

I h... moreAhan the Xiaomi.eu rom alright i'll have that in mind if my phone still causes problems even after the reset, which i have'nt done till now as i indicated, hoping the problem goes away on its own. Well fingers crossed again although the performance without the stuttering is good coming from a lower end phone, i really like that during multitasking, the 120hz display gives you smoothness and faster sample rate, i'll tell the shop keeper from where i bought the phone about the eu. rom to flash it if the problem persists after reset, thanks!
Muzungo, 17 Feb 2021Thank you very much! But I couldn't find the FPS meter in developer option I checked like... moreMaybe Note 8 Pro doesn't have it. In Poco X3, it's called "Frame Rate Monitor Tools". It's in Power monitor, which is above "Don't keep activities" & below "Profile HWUI rendering".
Alternatively, you can use gamebench but it's a hassle. See if you can find a not-too-old Game Bench FPS test of 8 Pro on YouTube.
About heating. I don't have any complaints. It gets a little warm but not much. The weather is not that hot either, so note that.
Longest I've played PUBG is for about 2.5-3 hours. I play on HD with Shadows, getting 60FPS using Gamers GLTool Pro. FPS remain consistent throughout.
It also only gets slightly warm after charging, which is impressive. I've heard it has a cooling system that extends to its battery as well.
And remember, heating is not an issue unless your game starts lagging - apart from being uncomfortable to hold phone.
If your game lags after your phone heats up, it's called "Throttling". Basically, software restricts your chipset power in order to cool down the device & prevent damage to hardware. Sometimes, it causes phone to restart as well.

But I couldn't find the FPS meter in developer option I checked like 3-5 times from top to bottom and can't find the option , maybe I don't have it or I'm just blind! Tried to look for Power monitor but can't find it in developer option! Maybe I'm blind! And I don't really care about camera I barely take any ! And how's the temp when gaming for long hours doesn't heat?
