has anyone brought this phone from wirelessplace? i want to order to Sri Lanka..also checked trust pilot but no reviews there..
The Poco X3 is getting the android 11 update now.
R, 03 Mar 2021There are plenty of times that the screen turns black whenever I'm playing COD. There... moreSame black screen issue with me.
I viewed tutorial videos on youtube and they all suggested the same remedy.
1. Turn on developer options in settings (this is done by tapping several times the MIUI Version for POCO in "About Phone")
2. Go to developer options and find "game driver preferences" then select "call of duty" and change the driver from "default" to "system graphics driver".
3. Then open game and reduce the graphics and frame rate both to "high".
I did all this and enjoyed good gaming experience although on lower graphics but the black screen issue was resolved. But unfortunately, this also worked for just 2-3 days and after that I am again facing the same black screen issue. Additionally, now I sometimes get glitches instead of complete blackout.
Ive been using poco for 4 months now its really a beast but just now i am charging my phone it didnt reach for 100% of battery which is a bit odd and makes me having anxiety what should i do if things like this happend?
Received the phone today... and it's a beast! I couldn't ask for more.

My device laging while pubg lite playing time

Unless you know each & every setting that "YouTuber" did in Phone - as well as understand effect + impact of every single setting & feature of the phone yourself, you've no business watching "YouTube tests".
Someone without geek-level of Android knowledge will only reach dumb conclusions by watching YouTubers - most of whom only make videos to get views, rather than actually educating viewers.
But then again, what else do you expect them to do? That's their entire business.
Few decent YouTubers that I recommend include Tech Jock (Geek stuff, Accurate Reviews) & Gupta Information System (durability tests).
There are 2 others. One who is good at "Phone Tear Down" videos & another is very new but he makes good "Tests/Benchmarks".
I'm personally getting more battery timing than anyone around me (class or the trip I went to). My friends literally emptied their power banks twice & tried to save battery by limiting phone use.
Meanwhile, I didn't care one bit, used phone on full brightness with location, mobile data, and literally used camera for hours to record videos in 4K using Gcam - without charging once.
I returned home after 22 hours with 1% battery still remaining.
I get 10-13 hours SOT inside house, even after playing PUBG FOR 4 HOURS. With 8+ hours of Standby timing.
Totalling to 17-20 hours of battery timing.
If I want better battery than this, I should go buy a keypad Commando Phone with 18,000mAh battery that'll last 30 days.
What about you?
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2021Poco X3 has no battery issue. i have watch some battery draining test videos on youtube (it most probably of indian version that have 6000mah battery) and all i see the battery drain is quicker than other devices
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2021Battery drainage is because of the software not the hardware. So it's most likely gonna h... moreik the battery drain issue is because of software as it isnt optimize but its been months and they didnt solve that yet , camera doesnt bother me that much unless its good on snapchat :')) haha not a gcam lover, n we will see how well the software optimized on redmi note 10 pro
Can I connect my ext SSD via usb OTG?
Kemizee, 07 Mar 2021I got 8hours 32 mins Screen on Time at 120HZ with 5% battery left. I don't know if that i... moreThat just normal SOT for poco X3 ... 8 - 10 hours sot with 120hz and all day 4g mobile data ...
And the camera stability of the poco x3 is better because of the EIS which the redmi note 10 pro has none according to the spec sheet and a review I watched
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2021hahaha but ppl complaining about battery draining issue in x3 nfc and its bulky too whereas re... moreBattery drainage is because of the software not the hardware. So it's most likely gonna happen to the redmi note 10 pro. As for the phone being bulky, yes it is bulky. The reason I said that poco x3 nfc is the best in terms of value is because once the redmi note 10 series comes out the price of the poco x3 will most likely to reduce. I like the design and display of the redmi note 10 pro but I dont really care that much about them, same as the camera since what I saw from the sample photos from other users all you need is gcam.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2021but redmi note 10 dont have a good chipset and other features like redmi note 10 pro Don't update unless you are having an issue that can be solved by the new update
How to view full battery usage from last charge? For some reason, battery graph is shown for only last 20 hours, so battery start graph keeps decreasing and starts from 90%, 80% etc as time goes on. So, I can't figure out actual sot usage and other stats.
Is there some settings or is it a bug? Has anyone has this issue?
Kemizee, 07 Mar 2021I got 8hours 32 mins Screen on Time at 120HZ with 5% battery left. I don't know if that i... moreIt's good, if your brightness is 30%+ & it also depends on your use.
I get 10-11 hours SOT on 120Hz, including 4 hours of PUBG.
But that's for 15-20% Brightness. Basically, at home on WiFi, without Location & Mobile Data turned on.
If I use 100% Brightness all day long with heavy use (using Gcam to record videos & pictures for 3-4 hours, keeping location & mobile data on, using 2 Sims & some other apps), then I get around 6 hours of SOT, with 12+ hours of Standby.
Basically, I went on a trip at 5AM & returned at 1AM next day with 1% battery remaining without charging it even once. I didn't hesitate to use up my battery.
While literally everyone else on trip begged for power banks & tried to save their battery as much as possible. Most of them only used lightweight chatting apps lol.
Gcam is heavier than PUBG, so its battery timing is really impressive. There are very few phones in the market that can beat its battery timing.
Most of the people who call its battery bad are just plain stupid who shouldn't have an opinion.
