Why you should get it: The best phone if performance and gaming is your top priority under BDT 30,000 because it packs a Snapdragon 800 series chipset at this price, no phone under BDT 30,000 or even recent BDT 40,000 can match it, fast UFS 3.1 storage, long battery life and the 120hz LCD display are well optimised by virtue of its Snapdragon 800-series chipset.
Why you should not get it: Poco X3 pro might be a heavy phone for some, the lack of an AMOLED screen will bother you if you are coming from using an AMOLED screen phone and the cameras, while not bad are just average in comparison to the Redmi Note 10 Pro and you will either hate or love the MIUI software it is running on but given the price to performance ratio it packs, it is hard to complain. The aforementioned negative points are at best nit-picking.
