Xiaomi utilized rear glass for 2020’s Poco X2 but the Poco X3 NFC and this phone are largely made of plastic. The screen protector and the topmost protective layer of the camera lens are all made from glass. These prices indicate that this phone is slightly less expensive than the Poco X3 NFC.

Poco phones seem to be popular among people who like to get a lot of tech for their cash.

Over on the front-facing camera, the 20MP sensor is capable enough, but the processing is a major letdown. Contrast levels are boosted to unnatural levels, and there is very significant sharpening and skin retouching.
