The Poco F4 has Gorilla Glass 5 on the top (and not the bottom). The Poco F4 GT evolves even more, since on the top it has Gorilla Glass Victus, an upgraded version compared to the Gorilla Glass 5 of the Poco F4, while on the back there is also no Gorilla Glass 5, as we had on the Poco F3.

The Poco F4 and F4 GT aren’t waterproof and don’t have the dust resistance of the Redmi Note 10, but they do have IP33 protection against water droplets and dust particles.

The Adreno 730 GPU has 970Mhz, it is upgraded from the Adreno 650 at 600Mhz of the Poco F4, which produces 1024 Shaders and 1800 Gigaflops instead of 989, i.e. we have twice the performance, which is visible in the games.

The Poco F4 GT has a very good Wi-Fi range. We tested it at a distance of 8 meters with wall interference and it downloaded at very good speeds. The Poco F4 does not have a 3.5 audio jack port. They have Android 12 operating system and Dual-Sim. On the sides of the Poco F4 GT we have an aluminum frame, in contrast to the plastic of the Poco F4.

The F4 GT’s battery at 4700Mah has fast charging with a 120W charger that reaches 0-100 battery in 17 minutes. It lasts around 13 hours with video playback and 10-12 hours if playing games, depending on the game.

Gaming
With the Poco F4 GT you will have extremely high gaming performance. You will be consistently close to the maximum frames of each game, whether it is 60fps or 120fps. There is also an upgrade to the passive cooling system compared to the Poco F3 so that your phone does not overheat.

Cameras
The rear triple camera: 64 Megapixels 2160p and two more: 8 Megapixels ultrawide and 2 Megapixels macrocam. We also have Dual-LED flash, HDR and panoramas.
Photos are quite sharp and you can shoot 1080p video selfies at 60fps, as opposed to the 30fps of the regular Poco F4.

There is also a very good performance in night photos through the autonight mode in the 64 megapixel camera. In the other cameras the result is not good. In the video we have a maximum resolution of 4K 60 fps on the rear camera.
Video: Up to 4K: 60fps.

For the Poco F4 GT that we analyzed today, the prices start from 495 euros for the 128GB capacity or 588 euros for the 256GB capacity. In summary, the Poco F4 GT is the ultimate mobile phone for gaming, while it has high performance in video playback and browsing, all with an excellent price-performance ratio. For me, you can get the more economical F4 GT, as 128GB is enough, or even the simple Poco F4, since the Poco F4 GT is aimed at slightly more demanding gamers. Although with a difference of 100 euros, the Poco F4 GT is definitely a lure.

Positives:
– Excellent gaming performance in the technical field and with stable frames in all games
– Amazing Wi-Fi range
– Very good value for money in the market
– It has almost all the advantages of a flagship smartphone

Negatively:
– In this budget it could be waterproof
