Review 80: 11.02.2021 at 00:00 am
😈 Hello Guys, Joker how are you today? two phones, Average performance, four rear cameras, huge batteries, Both of these devices could be an excellent choices for you Joker. This is the Poco X3 NFC, and this is the Samsung A21S from Samsung. There’s nearly 70 USD price difference between them.
Your coffee joker and Let me start with the Poco device:
Which comes with distinguishable back design, The device is made from plastic. There’s circle on the back that houses the rear cameras.
The front is mostly a screen, and there’s a circular punch hole to house the front facing camera. The screen is protected by a CGG5 layer. The device is IP53 splash resistant.
The device weighs 215g and its thickness is 9.4mm.The Pro X3 device comes with a Snapdragon 732G CPU.
The CPU comes with 8 cores and is built on 8nm architecture. The GPU is the Adreno 618. The device uses a LiquidCool 1.0 Plus cooling technology. It offers high efficiency in cooling the device.
According to Poco, this technology enabled 70% expansion of the cooling pipes. This helps in reducing the heat of the CPU.
While playing, the back of the device will be cooler. But since the back is made from plastic, you’ll unfortunately notice the heat. If the back is made form aluminum, it’ll decrease the heat.
Let me Joker continue discussing the device. In Geekbench 5, the CPU scored 564 points for the single core and 1756 points for multicores.
Here’s where the CPU performance is ranked among other
competitors we’ve reviewed in the channel before. PUBG game started with high settings, and the performance was smooth.
Most of you said that PUBG shouldn’t be only gaming benchmark. Let me ask you a question, then, What other games alongside PUBG should I try?
I decided to test games using PUBG game based on your suggestions in 2019 and 2020. That’s why I test devices with it. It is up to you now to decide. Let me know in the comments what game I should test besides PUBG. I’ll choose two games from the suggestions we receive.
The device supports a mode called Game Turbo, which offers a number of tools to enhance the gaming experience. These tools include cleaning the RAM and taking photos and videos while gaming. It also offers a number of other shortcuts.
The battery is 5160mAh. It is bigger than the A21S’ battery. The A21S battery is 5000mAh. It supports fast charging with 33W.
According to Poco, the battery charges from 0% to 62% in 30 minutes. It also charges from 0% to 100% in 65 minutes.
The screen size is 6.67 with a FHD+ resolution. The screen is called Dot Display because of the shape of the front facing camera. The screen’s aspect ratio is 20:9. It comes with 395ppi density.
The main feature of this screen is the 120Hz refresh rate support.. This high technology is not yet available with other devices from this category. This is the only device in this review that supports it.
The screen of comes with a higher refresh rate and its battery is bigger than that of the A21S battery. This higher refresh rate will offer better smoothness while using it and while gaming. But this feature only works with games that support high refresh rate.
Joker, You can make a Google search for games that support high refresh rate. Or you could search for games that supports 90Hz if your screen supports it. Make the search on Google rather than on the Play Store because I think it is more accurate. You’ll find a list of games that supports high refresh rate.
Sometimes, the device itself supports high refresh rate, but certain games don’t support it. The Poco X3 comes with 4 rear cameras.
The main camera is 64MP. The second is the Ultra Wide 13MP camera. The third is the 2MP Macro camera. The fourth is the 2MP Depth sensor.
The front facing camera is 20MP. The main camera takes photos with warm and saturated colors. But the results may vary depending on the device’s photo processing.
In general, the quality and details offered by this device are good. The Ultra Wide camera supports 119 degrees of view.
The colors are cold, and the quality varies: sometimes, it is good, other times it is acceptable. The cameras do their job.
The Poco device supports 10x digital zoom using the main camera. And as usual, the quality will be normal, because it depends on software rather than dedicated hardware.
In the Portrait photos, the isolation is good. But it also depends on different circumstances such as the light and the place. But in general, portrait photos are okay. Let me remind you to face a source of light before taking a selfie. The results of the Macro photography is acceptable. But sometimes, the color saturation is a bit high.
In general, this Macro camera is an additional feature in this device. The device shoots 4K@30fps videos. The details are acceptable and the colors are warm and saturated.
The shakiness is a bit high, but it does its job. The device supports a mode called Steady Video to enhance the stabilization of video, but it only shoots 1080p@30fps videos. It supports slo-mo videos with 720p@960fps.
The higher the frames per second, the slower the video will be. The lower frames per seconds, the more natural the video will be, whether it is 30 or 24 frames per second.
The results of the front facing camera vary in quality and details with a slight smoothness to the skin.
In portrait photos, the results vary, too. Sometimes, they’re perfect, other times, the isolation is less. It depends on angles, too. But in general, it does its job.
The Poco device comes with a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It supports 2 SIM cards or one SIM card and an SD card. The device runs Android 10 with MI UI 12 on top of it.
The UI is simple and easy to use. It supports Dark Mode and gestures. The device officially supports Google Play store. Both devices in this video fully support Google services.
Hopefully, things to back to normal with Huawei. The device supports bluetooth 5.1 and dual band WiFi. It also supports NFC and is compatible with Mada Pay.
You can also use services such as STC Pay with this device. The fingerprint sensor is embedded in the side power button.
After experimenting with it, it provides high responsiveness. The device unlocks using the front facing camera but it uses a photo instead of dedicated 3D sensors. I don’t advise using it since it is not safe.
The box contains a clear cover, fast charger and a charging cable.
🤡 Hopefully, Chinese companies won’t follow Apple’s and Samsung’s method of reducing the content of the box...
😈 Yes i hope Joker!
One of the main features of this device is its 120Hz screen. It also supports fast charging with 33W. Along with the USB-C port, there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack. We haven’t seen this port in a long time with this devices form this category. These added features along with the price are excellent.
I think this device would be a fierce competitor to the Galaxy A71.
Who would win a comparison between them?
It’d also be a fierce competitor to the Galaxy A51. But these devices were released a while ago. You can read their reviews on the magazine Joker, I’ll think about making other reviews.
The materials of this device could be better, especially the back of it. I’d prefer if it was another material.
The UI isn’t the best, too. But with time, you’ll get used to it, This device offers great features.
😈 Joker, But for now, let me discuss the Samsung Galaxy A21S device:
Could this device be a competitor? Because you’d save 80 USD if you decide to buy it.
What is the Galaxy S21S like?
🤡 I don’t know! hhhhhh like others smartphones from Samsung mother no?
😈 hhh The device is from the entry to mid-range level. It is made from plastic.
The back comes with two tones: the bottom one is matte silver with a rough touch. The fingerprint sensor is placed in the middle of the back. There’s a rectangular on the top left to house the rear cameras.
The front is mostly a screen. There’s a small circular punch hole to house the front facing camera.
The device weighs 192g and its thickness is 8.9mm. The CPU is the Exynos 850 with 8 cores and 8nm architecture build. The GPU is the Mali-G52.
In Geekbench 5, the CPU scored 172 points for the single core and 951 points for multicores.
Here’s where the CPU performance is ranked among other competitors that we’ve reviewed on Magazine.
There’s a huge difference between the performance of this device and the performance of the Poco device Joker. PUBG game started with medium settings and the performance was smooth.
Like the Poco device, this device supports a mode called Game Booster. This mode will enhance the gaming experience.
The battery is 5000mAh, and it supports fast charging with 15W. It charges from 0% to 32% in 40 minutes. The charger that comes in the box is compatible with all markets. Each region comes with a compatible charger in the box.
The screen size is 6.5′ FHD+ 1600×720. It is PLS LCD and it’s called Infinity-O Display. And like the Poco phone, its aspect ratio is 20:9.
The refresh rate of the screen is 60Hz, which is half the rate of the Poco phone, but it is logical in this price category.
The Galaxy A21S comes with 4 rear cameras. They are as follows: the main camera is 48MP with 80 degrees of view. The second is the Ultra Wide 8MP camera with 123 degrees of view. The third is the 2MP Macro camera. The fourth is the 2MP depth sensor. The front facing camera is 13MP.
The main camera provides acceptable photos with saturated and warm colors.
The main camera supports 123 degrees of view. It offers cold colors and details vary: sometimes, they’re good and other times they’re just normal.
In Portrait photos, the isolation isn’t the best, but it does its job. You could take better photos, but mostly, it depends on different circumstances. Joker, I also advise you to face a source of light before taking selfies.
🤡 Okay, i like selfies Man!
😈 The device shoots 1080p@30fps videos. It offers acceptable details with saturated colors. The shakiness of the device is high, and sometimes it is annoying. The front facing camera takes good photos.
The colors are cold, and as usual, the skin is smoothed. The isolation of the front facing camera isn’t the best. But it could change depending on different circumstances on both devices.
The Galaxy A21S comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. It supports 2 SIM cards AND a Micro SD card.
There’s a big difference between them. The Galaxy is cheaper then the Poco, yet it supports 2 SIM cards and an SD card. If you prefer to download files on your device, this device is better for you since it supports 2 SIM cards and an SD card. It’s better to have dual SIM cards and an SD card than having one SIM card and as SD card.
This applies to you if you prefer to use dual SIM cards. The device runs Android 10 with One UI 2.1 on top of it. The UI is simple and easy to use.
The device supports bluetooth 5 and dual band WiFi. But it doesn’t support NFC, so it’s not compatible with Mada Pay. But you can use STC Pay on it.
The rear fingerprint sensor offers good responsiveness. It supports unlocking using the camera, but it doesn’t have dedicated 3D sensors. I don’t advise using it since it is not safe.
The box contains the charger, charging cable and headphones. It doesn’t come with a cover anymore.
The price of the device is 200 USD,….
🤡 I like the price!
Yes, and the device is great for daily usage as a main or secondary device, The 5000mAh battery lasts for long.
The design of the device is distinguishable with the dual tone colors on the back and the fingerprint sensor.
The camera performance isn’t that high, but The capabilities of this device are excellent, though. It’s great for WhatsApp and social media apps. But don’t expect high gaming performance, though.
I used the word ‘Also’ twice in this sentence. I am sorry.
🤡 I noticed that, although you are annoying and talk a lot, but I enjoy talking with you, don’t care…
😈 Oh, that is kind of you Joker hhhhh, okay, i’ll conclude, look Joker, Your needs should be the main factor in choosing between both of these devices. The Poco device is great, but the A21S device could be better for you.
Your investment with these devices should last you for at least two years.
This is the end of this review. Which device is better for you now?
🤡 In fact, nobody, I want a phone with more features, but if I choose between them, I will choose POCO, I have a lot of devices that I want to review with you, but I feel asleep, thank you for this big review, see you tomorrow OTTO.😴
😈 You didn’t drink your Coffee, that’s why you feel sleepy, see you soon on the next reviews, good night Joker.👋
