Now that much of the 2020 mid-range has been launched, we are at a perfect time to draw conclusions from two of its main exponents, the Poco X3 on the one hand and the Realme 6 Pro on the other. Both smartphones have a lot to offer us on a level playing field that can even be overwhelming because even in price we have coincidences.
To make the decision between buying the Poco X3 or the Realme 6 Pro easier, we are going to review each and every one of its features. Before starting, we recommend that you be clear about your important points, so that you have no doubts when choosing one or the other. You yourself were the one who made the rules, we only gave you a cable so that you can make good use of your investment.
Different design and similar displays
The first aspect where we stop on the outside, since the great change that Xiaomi’s Poco X3 has introduced has caused them to be different on the outside. With a module of four cameras in pentagonal format there is nothing similar for now to this smartphone and meanwhile the Realme 6 Pro is more classic by offering its cameras in a vertical position. Both are made of plastic and in the front the hole in the screen commands, but with one or two lenses as you can see.
We have not had to wait long to know the first great similarity in the screens, since both are 6.6 inches with IPS technology. The aspect ratio is also maintained at 20: 9 and with a Full HD + resolution, as well as a useful surface of 84% in both cases. With a better refresh rate in the Poco X3 we find 120Hz and 240Hz for the tactile response and meanwhile the Realme 6 Pro with 90 Hz and 120 Hz of tactile response.
An almost identical processor
The generation jump is noticeable in this case where the Poco X3 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732 and the Realme 6 Pro maintains one of the most successful so far, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G. In both cases they are prepared for the best with an identical clock frequency of 2.3 GHz and a GPU also equal to Adreno 618.
The changes are present in your options since we can take the Poco X3 with 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of memory or the Realme 6 Pro with 6 + 128 GB or 8 + 128 GB. In both cases with UFS 2.1 storage and expandable through a MicroSD card.
Quadruple camera for both models
It is the turn of the lenses before where the main one is 64 Mpx in the Poco and Realme with a Samsung sensor for the Realme and Sony for its competition. The second lens is the wide angle and we find 13 Mpx for the Poco and 8 Mpx for the Realme. The third lens would be the macro that with 2 Mpx they tie both. Finally, we only need to know that the Realme 6 Pro includes a telephoto lens with 12 Mpx and a 2x optical zoom, something that Little changes for a 2 Mpx depth sensor.
The selfie camera of both models is well worked with 20 Mpx and 16 Mpx for Poco and Realme respectively. Video recording reaches 4K resolution on both smartphones and a digital image stabilizer. Both integrate options based on artificial intelligence to improve the result.
Battery and connectivity
A very important element is the battery and in these two models we do not go empty. The Poco X3 has a larger battery with 5160 mAh and a fast charge of 33W while the Realme 6 Pro offers us 4300 mAh with 30W of power. In March, we can charge the mobile in just 1 hour.
The connectivity is completed with NFC and an audio jack on its two mobiles, but only infrared on the Poco, in case we want to change channels with the mobile. Both phones have 4G and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as a fingerprint sensor on the side of the phone.
MIUI or Realme UI
The customization layer is important in this case, although they share Android 10 it is very different MIUI 11 from Realme UI. They are two layers with many options, although more mature in the case of the Poco, while Realme offers more European-style results with customization and more and more interesting additions but it is still an aspirant. It will depend on our tastes and what we are looking for, something lighter would be Realme, something more loaded the Poco.
Prices and purchase recommendation
We come to a key section, the cost that as we have already anticipated at the beginning we will find them at the same price of 269 euros . This happens when we look for the version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, the most recommended in both cases. A price that makes us give more importance to the other sections and not get carried away by their price.
It is very difficult for us to choose one or the other model since both are the best in this price range. We’ll pick the Realme 6 Pro for its lighter and easier cameras and customization layer , but the Poco X3 with its better screen and great battery . The best thing is that according to these points you stay with the one that convinces you the most, there are times when the decision is not easy and we hope that with this comparison we will be able to do it.
