Is POCO X6 Pro too good to be true?

Although I have doubts about its performance like Dimensity 8300 Ultra, LPDDR5X, UFS 4, AMOLED 68b and more, the x6 Pro has great features for its price. These kind of specs cost at least 20k and above, but the X5 Pro sells for just 17k at 8/256 (original price), which is 2K less than the 8/256.

The AnTuTu score is almost identical compared to the F5, with a score of 21k (actual price) and 1.3k score. It sounds good, but I think it’s too good to be true.

I think the debate revolves around the chipset 8300 Ultra.

The screen is good, maybe not as good as the K70/K70 Pro, but I wouldn’t say it’s bad. UFS4.0 definitely wins in this price range. The only cutting corner on this phone (besides the chipset) is the plastic for the frame and back cover (unless you use imitation leather).

From the history of MediaTek chipsets, sometimes they offer “lower price” than Qualcomm for brands to use their new chipset. The infamous Helio G series still dominates the 4G chipset market, and starting with the G90T, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is priced under 1800 yuan (around $300 at the time). This is only half of its effect.

So what’s the problem? It’s simple, “slicing”.

I think most people already know that SoCs (Qualcomm, MediaTek) have CPU and GPU (and other components). Qualcomm makes the CPU and GPU (especially as Apple does with its Apple Silicon and A-series A11) and MediaTek (Samsung’s Exynos, Huawei’s HiSilicon and all the rest) use their own CPU. designs. But Mali connects to other GPUs like PowerVR.

That’s why developers choose to optimize their apps/games for the Snapdragon chipset. It’s easier to have a GPU paired with one or two CPUs…if you’re optimizing for one GPU, you might have 4-5 CPUs from different designers. That’s why when people say they upgraded the SD chipset in the first place, it’s (not always) because Qualcomm paid them.

So back to our X6 Pro.

MediaTek chipsets always struggle against “equally priced” Qualcomm chipsets when benchmarking raw performance (I brought this up with the G90T and 665). However, as already mentioned, MediaTek has a higher TDP (theoretically) and runs hotter. I can’t find a DTP for the 8300 Ultra, the only DTP I can find (not accurate) is the 9300 which has a 12.5W DTP and the 8th Gen 2 has around 8W DTP.

So is this a bad chipset? (That’s why I dragged you to read this long comment).

Maybe not. Unless it’s a catastrophic chipset like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (nothing plus version), I don’t recall MediaTek having one (unless they discontinued the product recently). So you can buy it, but I’d wait at least a month for a long-term review. This is not a desktop chipset and you can easily replace the SoC. All in all, if it’s good enough, we have another decent and great gaming phone.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
