Is It Worth Buying POCO F3 GT

POCO F3 GT Review

Yes, the POCO F3 GT is worth buying because it has powerful MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, solid build quality, in-built gaming triggers, 10bit 120Hz AMOLED display, Stereo Speakers, Massive 67W Fast Charging and decent cameras. Overall, if you wanted to buy the best gaming smartphone then this is it, go for POCO F3 GT.


The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 is a 5G processor and yes, the POCO F3 GT does have 5G support but POCO has only enabled the two 5G bands, on the other hand, OnePlus has enabled seven 5G bands on OnePlus Nord 2 5G.

This is pure cost-cutting from POCO. In short, don’t buy POCO F3 GT because of the 5G tag. By the way, the POCO has used Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front side as well as the rear side while there is a metal frame that gives a premium feel.

As this is a gaming smartphone, you don’t have to worry about performance, the phone gives the best performance on almost all mobile games. Also, POCO has added gaming triggers which are very helpful while playing games like BGMI or COD Mobile.


Coming to cameras, the device features 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and 2MP macro sensor while there is a 16MP selfie shooter.

As I have said in the POCO F3 GT review, it doesn’t have the best cameras under Rs 30,000 in INDIA.

In short, if you want the best cameras then OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a better option but if you’re not into photography and you will just post images on social media then POCO F3 GT is also a good option.

Battery Life

Battery Life depends on your smartphone use but that 5,000 mAH battery will give about a day battery while 67W fast charging will help the phone to charge from 0% to 100 in only 42 minutes.

While the device also has stereo speakers which give the best gaming experience. By the way, the POCO F3 GT doesn’t have a 3.5mm Audio jack or SD-card slot.

If you’re a gamer then this could be the best feature, the POCO F3 GT has three microphones which includes, one at the top, bottom and right side.
