Unboxing the Poco X4 GT, a budget 5G gaming smartphone fresh for 2022, rocking Xiaomi’s MiUI 13 launcher with Game Turbo mode, Dimensity 8100 power and very different specs to the Pro phone. The camera tech is basic and there’s no OLED screen, unfortunately. However, the Poco X4 GT can smash through Genshin Impact, PubG and any other popular Android game.
You don’t have dedicated gaming hardware features such as shoulder triggers, as found in the F4 GT. However, the software smarts combined with the Dimensity 8100 SoC and cooling tech means you can indulge in all-day gaming no worries. Battery life on the Xiaomi Poco X4 GT is also a winner, thanks to the meaty 5080mAh cell.
5G support, WiFi 6 connectivity and Dolby Atmos audio round off some other impressive specs. However, the 64MP primary camera is quite basic, so don’t expect great quality photos and video. Likewise, the Poco X4 GT sports a simple LCD screen that lacks the deep blacks and strong contrast of OLED displays.
So that’s my hands-on review of this budget friendly gamer smartphone. Check out my coverage of the Poco F4 GT for more hot gaming action, this time with shoulder triggers!
