Hello fellas I'm really pondering about purchasing the Poco x3 pro. I'm currently a proud and happy user of a galaxy note 9. I bought it in 2019 when it wasn't Samsung's flagship anymore, but my good old one plus 3 was giving me bad battery life so I went for a note 9 because at the time it had everything I wanted (high end processor, big screen without notch, headphone jack, good cameras) and the price was right after one year of its release.

Right now my note 9 is still in good condition, even the battery is still at 85% of its capacity, but I'm thinking about the future. Probably this year the battery will degrade more and the poco is at an amazing price and it can carry me on for the next few years given that the hardware is newer than the n9.

So what do you think I should do? What would you do if you were me?

I'm concerned about the x3 pro cameras if they are am upgrade or a downgrade and maybe it's longevity.

And of course the screen is going to be a downgrade from de note 9 amoled display, but in the long run although amoled displays look amazing I'm always worried about the degradation and screen burn in, so I would be less concerned about using black wallpapers and using brightness with care.

Reasons to consider the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro:

Higher display refresh rate – 120 Hz
Comes with 1160 mAh larger battery capacity: 5160 vs 4000 mAh
Shows 15% longer battery life (112 vs 97 hours)
42% better performance in AnTuTu Benchmark (485K versus 341K)
The phone is 2-years and 7-months newer
Has an ultra-wide angle camera lens
More recent OS version: Android 11 versus 10
Has a built-in infrared port

Reasons to consider the Samsung Galaxy Note 9:

The rear camera has a 2x optical zoom
30% higher pixel density (514 vs 395 PPI)
Supports Qi/PMA wireless charging up to 15W
Optical image stabilization
Waterproof body (IP68 classification)
Delivers 23% higher maximum brightness (660 against 537 nits)
Super AMOLED display (versus competitor's IPS LCD)
Supports Dolby Atmos sound technology
The front-facing camera can record video at 1440p


I don't think it's would be an upgrade! it's just an moving :)

I think it's better to go for Poco F3 that's would be upgrade.

If headphone jack (and microSD like for me) are of high importance the choices are not wide. Most premium models ditch those features. However I would not consider PX3P an upgrade if not any of the reasons listed by @Abdullah.Csit are of primary importance. PX3P is a cheap SoC power house, but the cameras are average but nothing more. Redmi Note 10 Pro is viceversa: good camera (and Amoled) but slow processor.
