Both have roughly the same price point, but how do they stack up against one another?

POCO X6 Pro 5G vs Samsung Galaxy A34 Philippines: Design

The Galaxy A34 is superior over the X6 Pro 5G as it comes with an anodized aluminum frame to give it a more premium look. The Galaxy A34’s curved frame sides makes it more comfortable to hold in the hand.

While both phones come with a plastic back panel (the X6 Pro 5G has a vegan leather option), the Galaxy A34 has a sleeker camera layout compared to the X6 Pro 5G’s humongous camera module and bold POCO branding.

While both phones boast 120hz AMOLED displays, the X6 Pro 5G wins in this department. Aside from utilizing a punch-hole instead of a notch for the selfie camera, the X6 Pro 5G boasts significantly slimmer bezels compared to the Galaxy A34, giving you a higher screen-to-body ratio with the latter.

Aside from those two key points, the X6 Pro 5G boasts a 1.5k display resolution, making icons and texts look sharper than the Galaxy A34’s Full HD+ resolution.

POCO X6 Pro 5G vs Samsung Galaxy A34 Philippines: Cameras

Both the X6 Pro 5G and Galaxy A34 are relatively on even ground when it comes to cameras: both their main shooters have OIS built in, and both employ a familiar 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera. The X6 Pro 5G has a higher resolution sensor for the main camera at 64 megapixels, while the Galaxy A34 has a higher resolution macro camera at 5 megapixels.

Despite the slight differences in their camera setups, both phones are capable of shooting video at 4K while utilizing the OIS feature of their main cameras.


POCO X6 Pro 5G vs Samsung Galaxy A34 Philippines: Internals and Battery

The X6 Pro 5G has an overwhelming advantage over the Galaxy A34 when it comes to internals. Aside from being available with as much as 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage, the X6 Pro 5G’s Dimensity 8300 processor is significantly more powerful than the Dimensity 1080 found on the Galaxy A34.

To give context, the Dimensity 8300 can go toe-in-toe with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 despite being only an upper mid-range processor. While the Dimensity 8300 does not get flagship features like 8K video recording, its raw processing performance can easily give previous-gen flagship chips a run for its money.

While both phones have a 5000mAh battery inside, the X6 Pro 5G offers 67w charging, which is significantly faster than the Galaxy A34’s 25w charging.

POCO X6 Pro 5G vs Samsung Galaxy A34 Philippines: Price

The Galaxy A34 is priced at Php 19,990 for the 8GB/128GB variant and Php 21,990 for the 8GB/256GB variant. On the other hand, the X6 Pro 5G is priced at Php 16,999 for the 8GB/256GB variant and Php 19,999 for the 12GB/512GB variant.
