I was looking at this to replace my 2 year old Poco F1. Is it much of an upgrade ? I like the big 6.7 inch screen on this. The wide angle rear camera lense on this would actually help me in my work where I photograph sites. i don't mind the processor being a lesser 732 VS 845 in the F1. I don't think I would ever notice the differance in my usage. It's the big screen and wide angle camera that really interests me.

i bought the X3 today, I had the F1 for almost 2 years. The screen is a nice upgrade. You can see the difference with the 120hz and its very fluent. The wide angle rear camera is fun but it's only 13mp, it's abit darker then the main 64mp camera. The main camera is excellant I have to say. Front facing camera is great to. The user interface is fine but occasionally stutters. It's a new phone and I am sure they will sort it out. I got the shadow grey model and it's a lovely color I have to say. The battery is great so far, it would have to be at over 5000ma. No issues with slow frame rates in games. Medal of honor runs at maximum graphics setting with no stutter that I can tell. I have only been using the phone a half a day and I have not a lot of bad things to say about it so far. Honestly the Snapdragon 732G is perfectly fine, I know the F1 had a Snapdragon 845 but you would never know the difference in actually usage that the X3 had a lesser processor. I still see the X3 as an upgrade to be honest. Just picking it up and holding it you can tell it's a premium phone. It is also dust and splash resistant... Phone comes with a clear case in the box that fits super tight. So far I would personally recommend it and I am happy to retire my F1 for it.

Thanks for starting this thread. My Moto G7 is nearing end of life so i started a thread looking for an alternative with the Poco X3 NFC being one the recommended phones. The feedback from SS and the above video review seem really positive so i think this is now a front runner.

Were there any issues with buying it off Amazon?
Am just wary of it being sim free or having issues.
That said, I am thinking if pulling the trigger on it.
Might wait for Prime Day on the off chance the price drops a bit
