The Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro is the best budget phone at the moment: it currently sits right at the top of our roundup, winning out over competitors (mostly also from Xiaomi, it has to be said) for being an outrageously good budget offering.
And that’s at its usual price. For Black Friday, Amazon has discounted the 256GB model to just £159, which is £90 off the RRP.
That’s a better deal than Xiaomi is offering in its own Black Friday sale, and it’s cheaper than the lowest price we’ve seen for the 128GB model with less RAM, which was £169.
So, this is one of those genuinely good Black Friday deals that’s worth snapping up before stocks run out or the price goes back up.
If you’re not familiar with the Poco X3 Pro, you can read our full review of course but the highlights include a 6.67in 120Hz display, a large battery that lasts ages and fantastic performance from a Snapdragon 860 processor.
We've even given it our coveted Best Budget Phone of The Year award in 2021.
Unlike a lot of budget phones there’s even respectable water resistance: it’s rated IP53. That doesn’t mean it’ll survive underwater, but will easily handle getting wet in the rain or if you spill a glass of water on it.
