Poco F4 GT review: Gaming appeal

13 min read

Xiaomi continues to reach new heights with its sub-brand smartphone offerings; it’s latest achievement is the Poco F4 GT. Why does this phone particularly stand out? Well, it’s a mid-range smartphone with a flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 slotted in. That’s an impressive feat for an Android phone that costs just £699. Couple in its 120W charging speeds and 120Hz AMOLED display, and you’ve got a bonafide flagship killer.

With these highlighted specs, it would be right to think Poco is trying to edge its way into the casual smartphone user market. However, this is more of a phone for gamers, thanks to its game-boosting software and magnetic triggers. Even better, it doesn’t exactly look like a gaming phone. I don’t know about you, but that’s a huge plus for someone who likes to game on their phone without its design being purely focussed on the fact it has gaming-centric capabilities.

While it excels in some areas, it won’t sway people from sticking with more popular smartphone brands. Does it reach the heights of the “Apex Flagship” it’s claimed to be? Let’s find out. 

Poco F4 GT price and configurations

The Poco F4 GT just makes the cut for the mid-range phone category, priced at £699 (opens in new tab) (around $827). That’s a competitively priced phone considering the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 it houses, along with the 120Hz AMOLED display, 12GB of DDR5 RAM and 256GB of storage.
