The Poco X3 Pro from Xiaomi currently sits at the top of our best budget smartphone chart, offering phenomenal performance, a big 120Hz display and a long-lasting battery, and it's now even better value with £50 off in Amazon's Prime Day sale.

Available in three colours - Frost Blue, Metal Bronze and Phantom Black - the Poco X3 Pro comes with 128GB or 256GB of storage, with both models discounted at £179 and £199 respectively.

We think the 128GB version offers plenty of storage for all users, but if you are concerned about Google no longer offering unlimited free photo storage and you take a lot of snaps you might want to opt for the top model.

Amazon Prime Day deals end at 23:59 on Tuesday 22 June, so don't wait to take advantage. It's one of many great Xiaomi phone deals available in the Prime Day sale.

You will need to be a Prime Day member to take advantage of the deal, but a 30-day free trial is available. This is available once every 12 months, so don't worry if you've had one in the past.

Poco X3 Pro: Our Verdict

The Poco X3 Pro is a phone designed for Android gamers or power users on a budget, though it might also appeal to those who want to go big on specs in order to future-proof their phone.

If pure performance isn’t your priority, then you can find phones that are slimmer and lighter, with better camera performance, for around the same price.

What you won’t find is any phone that can match this pound for pound right now. This is near-flagship processing power in one of the cheapest phones on the market, and it’s almost ludicrous that Xiaomi has pulled it off.
