The Poco F3 GT Review

The Poco F3 GT was probably one of the highly anticipated smartphones of 2021, especially after what the company had accomplished in 2018 with the Poco F1. When expectations are high, it becomes more difficult to match them. The Poco F3 GT has more or less succeeded in that. It comes with features such as a 120Hz AMOLED display, MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, 64-megapixel main camera, a 5000 mAh battery, 67W fast charging and very capable maglev triggers for gaming.

The smartphone costs Rs 26,999 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, Rs 28,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, while the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant of the smartphone costs. phone costs Rs 30,999. Nevertheless, things are not as simple for the Poco F3 GT as they are probably for the Poco F1. That is because the Indian smartphone market has evolved since then.

We now have more options in the mid-range category. The Poco F3 GT competes with the OnePlus Nord 2, Realme X7 Max 5G, Mi 11X and iQOO 7, among others. So, is it still worth buying? Well, here are five important things you need to know.

Poco admits that design was not a big priority for them in the past, but wants to change that with the Poco F3 GT. For its first real attempt, it did a great job making a phone that’s chic, stylish, ergonomic and over the top – all at once!

It comes in two colorways, Predator Black (pictured in this review) and Gunmetal Silver, with the former being more understated and the latter more ostentatious. The silver is rather flashy and is a rather unusual color, and it shines beautifully. The black color has a matte finish that is immune to fingerprints and looks quite subtle unless the light hits it well.

Contrasting lines run across the back giving it some character, while the Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top keeps everything pristine. What we didn’t like was the addition of random words like “freeze” and “fastest” which really go against the phonepremium positioning.

The cameraPhotos are almost flush with the rest of the back panel.

The camera module has subtle breathing RGB lighting on the top and bottom that lights up up during notifications and charging and looks cool without going crazy like other games phones. And in what is arguably the dumbest Easter egg in smartphone design, the flash looks like a flash. We are fans of how good this is phone balances these quirks and subtlety.

The best design choice is the frame, which has three different curvatures. Apparently the first phone in India to do this, the Poco F3 GT has curved sides for better handling in normal cases, flat corners for easier grip for cases like photography, and concave top and bottom to facilitate gaming in landscape. It may seem like a small thing, but it goes a long way in making it more ergonomic.

These comfort-driven elements are important because the phone is quite heavy otherwise, comes out at over 200 g. Fortunately, the weight is well distributed from top to bottom.

The Poco F3 GT is also Xiaomi’s first smartphone (excluding Black Shark) with gaming-specific hardware additions that give it an edge over the competition. On the right edge are two sliders, which activate the “Maglev triggers” when flipped. These are mechanical shoulder buttons that can be assigned to any point on the screen for gaming and are intended to be used by the index fingers – unlike other gamers who are limited to two thumbs for input. More about them in the performance section.

Extra moving parts and openings are always a bad idea on smartphones, so it remains to be seen how well these sliders and buttons last.

The other ingenious aspect was the placement of the speakers. The two speakers are placed closer to the corners to not only create a balanced stereo output, but also not be covered by the palms when held sideways for gaming for content viewing. They get a lot loud and clear which is rare on this mid range phones – one of the best speakers at this price.

The Poco F3 GT also manages to be fairly slim at 8.3mm, without sacrificing battery capacity, audio output or haptic feedback. It’s one of our favorites phones when it comes to design.

In the past, Poco has avoided using AMOLED displays on its smartphones due to reasons such as inconsistent quality and lack of proper DC dimming. While we think it’s more of a cost factor, we’re glad the Poco F3 GT is changing that.

One of the cheapest phones with a Samsung E4 panel, the phone comes with a Full HD + “Turbo” AMOLED display with a diameter of 6.67 inches and a variable refresh rate of 120 Hz. While gaming, the touch response can be increased to 480 Hz to make touches and swipes more responsive. Other features include HDR10+ certification, Gorilla Glass 5 protection, 1,300 nits peak brightness and much more.

We’re pleased to report that all these elements combine to make the Poco F3 GT’s display one of the best in the segment, with incredible color fidelity, extremely high brightness levels and a ton of brightness. It’s a great showcase of HDR10+ images for supported content, with high contrast and dynamic range. At 6.67-inches, it has a 20:9 aspect ratio which is a bit wider than most of the other recent ones phones. The bezels are equal on all sides, that is, they are quite thick. You could argue that they offer more space for holding the phone comfortable while gaming without triggering accidental touches.

We also had no problems using the phone outside, in direct sunlight. The maximum brightness was always sufficient to maintain readability.

With an adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz, we found the Poco F3 GT to be quite fluid during most operations without demanding much from battery life. The software also seems to be well optimized to understand the refresh rate and scale according to the content.

There is no fingerprint scanner under the screen, as biometric data is processed by the power button who has one in it. It is much faster and much more reliable than an optical implementation, but it does make up for the good side of the phone quite busy.
