Poco X3 NFC versus Pixel 4a camera comparison: budget smartphone camera shootout


The budget smartphone segment is really heating up in 2020 with the introduction of the Poco X3 NFC. The new device comes in at an extremely low price point, undercutting the Pixel 4a by a full $115 while delivering a quad-camera setup on the back and an incredible 120Hz refresh rate.

While the Poco X3 NFC has the Pixel 4a beat when it comes to its spec sheet, we all know that a true test of a smartphone’s cameras really comes down to real-world performance. After our initial Poco X3 NFC camera test, we took the phone out to capture side-by-side photos and videos with the Pixel 4a, a device that definitely shoots above it’s $350 sticker price. Take a look at the video and the gallery below to see how these two budget-friendly smartphones match up.
