The phone is protected by a metal frame that’s why it makes it heavier by 220+ grams. Talking about the design, the Camera bump takes up so much space for the camera itself. I mean we are talking about so many fingerprints on the backside of this phone because it’s not a matte finish. The camera bump looks familiar with the Xiaomi Poco F3 GT. Talking about the fingerprint scanner it’s located on the power button and has some amazing speeds.

Software:

ROM MIUI 13

The Xiaomi Poco F4 GT is going to be launching with Android 12 straight out of the box. Which is more customizable than the Android 11 and has tons of new features. This new custom ROM is optimized well with new cool animations and wallpapers. This new MIUI 13 fixes old bugs like touch lags, camera app improvements, new layouts, improved dark mode, and a new gaming turbo engine.


Battery:

Capacity 4700 mAh
Charge power 120 W
Battery type Li-Po
Wireless charging No
Reverse charging No
Full charging time 0.17 hr

Xiaomi Poco F4 GT comes with 120 watts of charger. Which can fully charge the Poco F4 GT in just 17 minutes which is amazingly fast. There is no wireless charging support. The charging speeds are so good that on 10 minutes of charge this Xiaomi Poco F4 GT can last up to 8 hours thanks to that massive 4700MAh battery. Xiaomi Poco F4 GT is a full-day phone I mean this phone can last all day long. I can eat my breakfast and watch YouTube, I can eat my lunch and watch YouTube, I can eat my dinner and watch YouTube well what I am trying to say is this is an all-day phone. And after all-day use, this phone will still have a 30-40% battery.

MAIN CAMERA:

Matrix 64 megapixels
Image resolution 9248 x 6920
Zoom Digital
Flash Dual LED
Stabilization Digital
8K video recording No
4K video recording 60 FPS
1080p video recording Up to 120FPS
Lenses (64 MP +8 MP +2 MP)

Xiaomi Poco F4 GT has 3 cameras at the back and the main camera is so amazing that it can take some amazing shots. The Xiaomi Poco F4 GT main Camera is 64 megapixel F/1.9. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.9, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be. This Xiaomi Poco F4 GT can record video at 4K at 60 FPS. This is amazing the video will contain more details thanks to its good optimization software and the high-end processor. You can also record 1080P at 120FPS which will be slow motion. There is Digital image stabilization on the main lens only. which is no impressive as the optical image stabilization but, this will make the camera experience more stable and more accurate. The Xiaomi Poco F4 GT has 3 more camera lenses. Let’s talk about that in detail.



Lenses:

Triple 64 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide), 1/1.73″, 0.8µm, PDAF
8 MP, f/2.2, 120˚ (ultrawide)
2 MP, f/2.4, (macro)
Features Dual-LED flash, HDR, panorama

As I mentioned above that this 64 MP sensor is good. But this Xiaomi Poco F4 GT has 3 more camera lenses. There is another camera sensor of 8MP which is an ultra-wide camera. And it’s so wide the field of view is 120 degrees which is wider than the one on the Poco F3 GT. This camera sensor also has some amazing autofocus. This sensor can take amazing shots with high accuracy. Its aperture is F/2.2, which makes it sharp and contains good tons on subjects. This Xiaomi Poco F4 GT has an amazing camera setup, with fast autofocus lenses, high sensors, and good software optimization.

SELFIE CAMERA:

Single 20 MP, f/2.4, (wide), 1/2.0″, 0.8µm
Features HDR
Video [email protected]/60fps, [email protected], HDR

When it comes to selfie cameras I’m a little disappointed. Because it’s a flagship smartphone from Xiaomi and it only has a 20MP camera. I mean Samsung and Xiaomi are giving 32MP selfie cameras on their Midrange smartphones. And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.4 which means the photos will look not accurate as other smartphones, also this camera will suffer a lot at night because the sensor is not that wide to capture more light thus leaving us in disappointed. The camera video capabilities are also kept at 1080P at 60FPS only. Which is also not enough for a higher flagship smartphone from Xiaomi.


Connectivity:

Wi-Fi standard Wi-Fi 6
Bluetooth version 5.2
USB type USB Type-C
NFC* Yes

This Xiaomi Poco F4 GT is launching with the Wi-Fi 6 which is faster, more efficient, and gives you less latency when compared to the Wi-Fi 5. Which will make the user experience smoother and faster. There is also the support of Bluetooth 5.2. Which is also faster and more efficient than version 5.1. Xiaomi Poco F4 GT has the USB type C gen 2.0 support which makes sense because of the 120 watts of fast wire charging so it must need more bandwidth for charging speeds. It also helps with the data transfer because it helps with the faster read and write speeds. Xiaomi Poco F4 GT also has NFC support which is also useful. You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to the NFC support.

SOUND:

Speakers Yes, with stereo speakers (4 speakers)
Headphone audio jack No

The Xiaomi Poco F4 GT comes with stereo speakers which are 4 of them on this phone. This Xiaomi Poco F4 GT has nice sound quality with a nice amount of bass in it. This will help in gaming because there are two speakers one at the bottom and one at the top which will help gamers there are also two speakers on this smartphone. Video watching and hearing to music also going to be very good. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is neither good nor bad.


Colors:

Colors Stealth Black, Knight Silver, Cyber Yellow

The Xiaomi Poco F4 GT is going to lunch in three different colors. Stealth Black, Knight Silver, and Cyber Yellow. Xiaomi is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the Stealth Black color because it looks better than these two colors.

Price:

This smartphone is costing around $450 which is way cheaper than the Vivo iQOO 9 Pro and the Xiaomi Black Shark 5 Pro.


Final Thoughts:

If you are looking for a good camera phone, good gaming phone, good design, good display, and amazing performance then this Xiaomi Poco F4 GT is worth buying. Because it has all the needs that a good consumer needs.

So, this was my full review of this Xiaomi Poco F4 GT.
