People often want to buy the best devices with a high price/performance ratio, so they compare the features of the devices and try to get the best device for the budget they have.
Brands are promoting a lot of devices for each segment. You may witness a mobile phone being introduced every day. Considering that many devices are introduced in a year, we think that it becomes difficult for people to decide which device to buy. Sometimes, people think about the differences between the new series and the previous series, and whether it is necessary to switch to a higher model. However, new generation devices generally do not have significant differences compared to previous generation devices. You’ll see a more advanced camera, a better screen, and more. Do you think you really need a new generation device that is a bit more advanced? Will it provide you with an important innovation when you buy it? We see that such questions are not often asked by users.

Users stated that there were no shortcomings with the POCO X3 Pro model. This time, POCO has announced that the next generation X series device, the POCO X4 Pro 5G, will be introduced soon.
