Key Features of the Poco F4 GT
With the Poco F4 GT, you'll get all the features you'd expect from a gaming phone. According to Xiaomi, it's the same phone that they sell in China under the name “Redmi K50,” but it has been repackaged to try to reach a wider audience.
Although the phone's appearance doesn't scream “gamer” (except for the Cyber Yellow one, perhaps? It has a cyberpunk feel to it), it does have a few distinctive design elements. For example, the camera bump on the back of this phone has this hourglass-shaped design. Aluminium is also used for the body, and the phone has a solid feel to it. However, unlike last year's F3 GT, it does not have an IP rating.
It's not as complete a gaming phone bundle as some of its rivals; you don't get a fancy cooling fan, accessories, or comprehensive gaming options. There are LEDs surrounding the camera bump that light up for notifications, and the charging wire is suitably angled so you can charge while gaming.
When it comes to gaming, the Poco F4 GT has retractable hardware triggers as its most notable feature. With the flick of a switch, they all emerge from the corners of the frame. They're satisfying to use, especially in fast-paced games like racing or shooting.
There's a 6.67-inch OLED display on the Poco F4 GT, which has a 1080p resolution and a 120hz refresh rate, as well as Gorilla Glass Victus protection. With 120 fps support and a 480-hertz touch sampling rate, this display is responsive to your touches even when playing games at high frame rates. When you're idle on the home screen or in specific apps, you can reduce the refresh rate to 60 hertz to save power, and it can go even lower.
The visuals are excellent. Colours are vibrant thanks to HDR10+ and 10-bit colour support. If you adjust the settings, the colours can be pretty precise, and the maximum brightness is also quite good.
The Poco F4 GT has four speakers instead of the conventional stereo's two, which is an interesting feature. They are arranged in pairs, with a woofer on one side and a tweeter on the other. It's nice to have them in such a way that you won't accidentally cover them while playing. There is no denying that the audio is of top-notch quality, with deep bass and clear treble.
A powerful chipset is a requirement for a gaming phone, and the Poco F4 GT has Qualcomm's top-tier Snapdragon 8 gen 1 on board. As expected, it churns out excellent results and easily handles demanding Android games. A complex passive cooling system with two vapour chambers is used in place of the typical fan.
A 4700 mAh battery powers the phone, which is divided into two separate cells for speedier charging. A full charge on the Poco F4 GT takes about 20 minutes, making it one of the fastest chargers on the market.
The phone comes with 128 or 256 gigabytes of internal storage that cannot be expanded, and the user interface is rather ordinary. The MIUI 13 operating system is based on Android 12. Your biometrics are handled via a fast and efficient side-mounted fingerprint reader. Unlike other Xiaomi devices, the Poco F4 GT doesn't have any additional gaming-related features other than the game turbo launcher. It has a few options, but they aren't extensive.
An overlay can be brought up in-game, and it will provide you with choices such as recording the screen and disabling notifications. The unique aspect of this game is that it includes a map for the shoulder buttons, allowing you to do away with the on-screen controls altogether.
Triggers also give you access to other features on the home screen. They can be used as quick access points to a variety of features, but not as full-fledged applications.
The F4 GT's main camera takes respectable images during the day despite its lackluster cameras. An 8-megapixel wide angle lens, as well as a 2-megapixel close-up camera, are all included. The resolution and noise levels are excellent, with great detail and few artifacts. It's roughly in the middle when it comes to sharpening and dynamic range.
The subject separation in portraits is pretty good, especially in scenarios that are more complex. The images captured by the ultra-wide lens are of acceptable quality; there is sufficient detail and an average dynamic range. Macro shots from the macro camera aren't something to write home about at 2MP. Despite the lack of clarity, the colours appear vibrant in low-light situations.
Photos taken with the main camera on the Poco F4 GT will automatically be adjusted for night mode. These photos are well exposed, have a wide range of tones, and have colours that are well saturated. The level of detail is decent, and there is minimal noise.
There's also a night mode that you can switch on and off. This makes the image look a little bit different, with more sharpening and darker shadows. You can greatly increase exposure by using the dedicated night mode.
A wide dynamic range and vibrant colours are evident in the selfies taken by the 20-megapixel front-facing camera. The level of fine detail is acceptable but not up to par with what you'd expect at this screen resolution.
The main camera of the Poco F4 GT is capable of recording videos in 4K resolution at 60fps. The video quality in 4K is excellent, with minimal noise and lots of clarity. But because of the intense saturation of colour, this piece may not be suitable for all tastes.
Even though the main camera's auto-focus sometimes doesn't work right, the footage still looks smooth because of the electronic stabilization.
