X431 PRO3 APEX screen size is larger than the Pro TT and supports more vehicles, and one thing not mentioned in the table is that the PRO3 APEX supports the developed topology map function, which can directly access all systems, check module communication status.
And X431 PRO3 APEX can support truck diagnosis with HD3 module, but PRO TT does not have this function.



X431 Pro TT has good hardware configuration, but the screen size is small, and its functions and expansion modules are lacking compared to the other two products. But relatively, the price of Pro TT is the cheapest among the three products.



These three products are applicable to the Launch X431 update service policy, which provides two years of free updates. The price list from high to low is LAUNCH X431 Pro5, X431 PRO3 APEX, and X431 Pro TT.
