The design of Poco X3 GT is made of plastic but sure, it looks premium and very pleasing to everyone’s eye. The back is very different from the other previous X3 phones, it features a rounded-square camera module and shiny glass like back on the Stargaze Black model that we have. The side-mounted fingerprint scanner works very responsive and the same time serves as a power button.

When it comes to gaming, we tested few popular online games in the Poco X3 GT and it turns out the this device is very capable to handle games like Genshin Impact, Call of Duty Mobile, PUBG and Mobile Legends.  You have ultra-graphics settings available for Mobile Legends, very high graphics plus max frame rate option for Call of Duty and lastly, you can play Genshin Impact smoothly at medium graphics. On top of that, it has a Liquid Cooling Technology 2.0 reducing the heat using the multi-layer graphite with a D5 copper heat pipe beneath its chipset.
