Xiaomi POCO X3 Pro Global Version 6GB+128GB (US $230 B4 coupons, FS)

Edit #1

It seems there is a 8gb/256GB model for $319 here is the link I did not order mine from them so I can't say about delivery etc.

-- Original Post --

After not seeing anyone post this deal I thought I'd chime in about this excellent deal for a amazing phone, so I have ordered one and received it yesterday from this seller. Standard shipping wasn't anything to write home about, took approximately 3 weeks to receive it but was well packed.

What you are getting is an absolute amazing phone for the price!! at just under $300 you get basically a revamped flagship (Snapdragon 860) with 6GB ram and 128GB storage. The battery is huge at just over 5000 Mah, it supports fast charge, and supposedly runs for a long long time.

Because it has a flagship type processor, it is snappy, has UFS 3.1 so storage is amazingly fast, and with 128gb you can have all the apps you want. I put a 128gb micro SD right away...

Band support some might say isn't as good as it could be, but, like my previous Xiaomi phone (Redmi Note 5 Pro) I have no issues, and it actually seems to be a little more reliable in the spots where my old phone would have issues (I was surprised yesterday while talking to someone in a normal bad area).

The screen is what people say is not as good, but for myself I like it --- looks much better than my old screen and uses the real estate very well...

Included in Box is:
-(*) EU Fast Charge Adapter (need to get a NA converter to use it)
-Decent protector case (adequate but you might want to get a better one)
-Charging Cable
-Manual

If interested in a case, supposedly the ones from the X3 NFC will work with the X3 Pro because they are supposedly the same dimension wise.

So I thought I'd post this deal since I haven't seen one yet, and this is a sweet deal, for a amazing china phone. If you use regular shipping it's marked as "handset" and you probably won't pay any duty/taxes (as I didn't) .. If you guys have any questions please feel free to chime in, I'll answer them as fast as I can...

Thread Summary
8/5/21 aasoror added (x3 pro custom firmware flashing instructions):
aasoror wrote: Absolutely a breeze to flash once unlocked.
- Download lastest TWRP (rename recovery.img) and latest ArrowOS (rename arrowos.zip)
- Boot the phone into fastboot and connect it to PC.
- From the extracted android platform-tools folder execute:

Code: Select all

fastboot flash recovery "recovery.img"
fastboot boot recovery.img
- Phone still connected to PC, boots into TWRP, the internal storage pops up on PC, move the arrowos.zip into some place there and disconnect the phone from the PC.
- On the phone (TWRP still on) go to install and browse to arrowos.zip and install it.
- Once done don't reboot, return to main menu and select Wipe -> Format Data.
- Reboot and enjoy.
aasoror wrote: For those flashing to arrowos, the built-in camera app is the "GCAM GO" (a lite version of the GCAM), it's seriously lacking in options (can't even change the aspect ratio of the photos).

Just sideload a GCAM port and you should be fine (7.3.018 from the link below works).

Why? Xiaomi's done nothing wrong. It's not like their CEO did any business deals that pissed the US off.

because since ... January or so, a lot of stores don't allow the shipment of it to Canada anymore, or it goes through super expensive third party shippers like DHL express, etc.

Great phone. Pretty heavy though. I had the mi 9T pro and note 10 lite which was way lighter. 120 Hz is not very noticeable except in gaming. Pubg mobile runs very well.

I think Poco is a not part of Xiaomi anymore. This store is the POCO Global Online Store. If you go to the Xiaomi official store, they still don't ship to Canada

This is upvoted but the 8GB 128GB phone was downvoted.

Is it strictly an issue that Xiaomi is more premium and respected?

I thought it was going to be huge myself, other than a little heavier It really isn't that big!! :) The real estate on the screen is amazing, and going from a Redmi Note 5 Pro, I really don't notice it being much bigger...

Can't decide between the POCO X3 and Realme 7 5G. Can anyone chime in which is the better buy?

Camera is decent supposedly a downgrade from the X3 NFC but, I find the pictures great from the 48mp sony sensor. It's a great value for the price, but I didn't really buy it for the camera but it's beyond adequate. The speed is really where it is at, the phone is snappy and pretty much instantaneous loading and switching between apps.

I'm not a huge fan of MIUI but I debloated it and it's fine for now, I'll wait a few months for a custom rom and install one, that is the best thing that they don't lock these phones or force you to run MIUI....
