Xiaomi Poco X4 GT is a full-day phone I mean this phone can last all day long.




MAIN CAMERA:

Zoom Digital
Flash LED
Stabilization Digital
8K video recording No
4K video recording Up to 30FPS
1080p video recording Up to 60FPS
Angle of widest lens 120°

Xiaomi Poco X4 GT has 3 cameras at the back and main the camera is so amazing that it can take some amazing shots. The Xiaomi Poco X4 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 X4 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 optical image stabilization but, this will make the camera experience more stable and more accurate. The Xiaomi Poco X4 GT has 2 more camera sensors. Let’s talk about that in detail.

Lenses:

Wide (main) lens – 64 MP
– Aperture: f/1.9
– Pixel size: 0.8 micron
– Sensor: 1/1.72″, Samsung Bright S5KGW2 (ISOCELL Plus CMOS)
– Phase autofocus
Ultra-wide lens – 8 MP
– Aperture: f/2.2
Macro lens – 2 MP
– Aperture: f/2.4
– Pixel size: 1.75 micron
– Sensor: 1/5″, Omnivision OV02B10 (CMOS)
– Phase autofocus
Camera features – Bokeh mode
– Pro mode

As I mentioned above that this 64 MP sensor is good. But this Xiaomi Poco X4 GT has 2 more camera lenses. There is another camera sensor of 8MP which is an ultra-wide camera. The field of view is 16mm which is wider. 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 of subjects. This Xiaomi Poco X4 GT has an amazing camera setup, with fast autofocus lenses, high sensors, and good software optimization. There is another 2MP macro camera which is useless in most situations because it’s only 2MP.

SELFIE CAMERA:

Megapixels 16 megapixels
Image resolution 4920 x 3264
Aperture f/2.45
Pixel size 0.8 microns
Sensor type Exmor-RS CMOS
Sensor size 1/2″
Video resolution 1080p (Full HD) at 60 FPS

When it comes to selfie cameras the Xiaomi Poco X4 GT has a single punch whole camera of 16MP which has the largest pixels. This single-punch whole camera contains some awesome details when it comes to daytime shots. At night time this camera sensor struggles a lot.  And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.45 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 30FPS only.



Connectivity:

Wi-Fi standard Wi-Fi 6
Bluetooth version 5.3
USB type USB Type-C
NFC* Yes

This Xiaomi Poco X4 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 5.3. Which is also faster and more efficient than version 5.2. Poco X4 GT has the USB type C gen 2.0 support which makes sense because of the 67 watts of fast wire charging so it must need more bandwidth for charging speeds. It also helps with data transfer because it helps with faster read and write speeds. Xiaomi Poco X4 GT also has NFC support which is also useful. You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to NFC support.

SOUND:

Speakers Stereo
Headphone audio jack No
FM radio No
Dolby Atmos Yes

The Xiaomi Poco X4 GT comes with stereo speakers. This Poco X4 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. Video watching and hearing to music also going to be good. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is neither good nor bad.

Colors:

Colors Black, Silver, Blue

The Xiaomi Poco X4 GT is going to launch in three different colors. Black, Silver, and blue. XIAOMI is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the Black color because it looks better than these two colors.

Price:

This smartphone is costing around $400 which is way cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the iPhone 13 pro max.



Final Thoughts:

If you are looking for a good Flagship phone, good gaming phone, good design, good display, and amazing performance then this Poco X4 GT is worth buying. Because it has all the needs that a good consumer needs.
