What are the strengths and weaknesses of the POCO F4 GT? Who is this phone really for? Who should buy the flagship POCO, and who should skip it?
I hope you find answers to these and other questions in My opinion of the Xiaomi POCO F4 GT.
Three good reasons to buy Xiaomi POCO F4 GT …
As befits a flagship, the POCO F4 GT is powered by the best processor out there Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. We know it from other devices, although it is often more expensive. The closest in terms of price he is Realme GT2 Prohowever more expensive than POCO.
How does a smartphone deal with a processor that has a reputation for heating up? we will, Use of LiquidCool Technology 3.0 التبريد cooling system It helped. The POCO F4 GT is clearly much cooler under load than, among other things, Xiaomi 12 Pro. It is true that the temperature around the processor is similar, but POCO is less warm in other parts of the casing.
Performance loss occurs under load to a reasonable degree. The CPU slowed me down by 20-30%, and so did the GPU. Taking into account the computing power reserve, This situation is not disappointing.
A powerful processor after all, combined with Up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB UFS 3.1, ensures the quick launch of the system, applications and games. Everything is at the highest level.
For all these reasons, I consider the components and the resulting performance a strong point of the Xiaomi POCO F4 GT. Can I say the same about the battery?
It depends. capacity 4700 mAh It’s totally reasonable, but it’s definitely not a record. The working time is not, but in most scenarios the POCO F4 GT easily lasts an entire day, even when playing occasionally.
However, this smartphone does not charge quickly. In the box with POCO we find the energy source o Power up to 120WIn which the F4 GT regains 100% of its power less than 20 minutes. This means that you just need to put your smartphone aside for a few moments to enjoy the game again.
Not only speed and charging speed are the magic things about this phone. I can say the same about… vibration. Yes really.
In the POCO F4 GT, Xiaomi has installed a huge vibration motor by smartphone standards – its surface is an impressive 560 mm. Thanks to this, the feedback from the flagship POCO is simply wonderful, because it is strongly distinguished, but not rattling as in the old Zaporozhe.
This is not all. The manufacturer has thought very well how vibrations can make our life more enjoyable. We can choose its intensity in the settings. We’ll feel it in places we totally wouldn’t expect.
For example, the POCO F4 GT lets us know when we zoom in on an image in the Gallery app as much as possible. The same thing happens when we reach the end of the scrolling list. When the virtual buttons are pressed, the reaction is so great that I turned off the gestures.
Some say that good vibrations define a good smartphone. The POCO F4 GT confirms this thesis.
…and an equally important one
Unfortunately, there are three strong advantages that correspond to a strong counter. The camera is not surprising. On paper, its specs suggest it’s a mid-range, not a flagship. we get:
- main unit 64 MP, Sony IMX6861 / 1.73, f / 1.9,
- 8MP wide angle lens o 120 degree field of viewAnd
- 2 megapixel macro sensor,
- A 20-megapixel selfie camera.
It is not difficult to identify the cheaper smartphones that have better imaging facilities than the discussed POCO. I will mention the models here OnePlus Nord 2 5G if Realme 9 Pro +. They take better pictures not only on paper but also in reality.
I cannot say that Xiaomi POCO F4 GT takes bad photos. When you prefer the light It’s really cool And it’s not much different from the capabilities of the more expensive Xiaomi 12 Pro. Well, even with the mods, the level is still okay.
However, when there is little light, the stairs start. Lots of artifacts appear, and the images are a little dark. Night mode improves this and I highly recommend using it, but by the way, I also recommend getting used to the override. I am satisfied with the efficient auto focus.
The icing on the cake of mediocrity No telephoto lens, even basic. There is a certain rehabilitation Very good video qualityalso in 4K at 60 frames per second.
Other strengths and weaknesses of the POCO F4 GT
Now that we know what the Xiaomi POCO F4 GT likes the most and what its biggest weaknesses are, it’s time to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this phone that is less important overall, but maybe for someone.
I can also commend the POCO F4 GT for:
- Quad media speaker with very reasonable quality,
- Nice AMOLED screen with overclocked humidifiers and good calibration,
- Exquisite workmanship: two glass panels connected by a metal frame,
- Instant fingerprint reader on the side frame,
- gentle stimuli,
- Modern communications standards on board, with Wi-Fi 6 at the fore,
- An infrared port will always come in handy.
If I had to stick with something else, I’d point out:
- No certified water resistance,
- Enough brick Residence
- There is no 3.5mm jack connector and no memory card slot,
- February fixes in May on a new phone of this class An annoying surprise,
- USB 2.0 is kind of a shame.
I sometimes notice that some owners of Xiaomi phones complain about the operation of the proximity sensor during calls. In the case of the POCO F4 GT, the I didn’t notice. As a phone, this model works flawlessly.
As for the so-called proposal, it is on my copy They weren’t active. If this is not the case for you, be sure to check How to disable advertising on Xiaomi smartphones.
So is it worth buying the Xiaomi POCO F4 GT?
In my opinion it is simple. Want to buy a high-performance smartphone, value very fast charging, want an overclocked display, don’t want to compromise on build quality and have a positive experience with Xiaomi? In this case POCO F4 GT from PLN 2649 its yours.
However, if you do not like the combination of these advantages with a very average camera for this price category, lack of water resistance or MIUI overlay, then At a price of about 3000 PLN You can easily find a better phone for yourself.
Single Xiaomi POCO F4 GT is a successful smartphone in my opinion And who knows, maybe sooner or later he will deserve a place in our ranking Feature phones with outstanding value for money. The launch promotion suggests there is an opportunity for that.
