Infinix GT 10 Pro Review: It Sure Doesn't Feel Like A Budget Phone

Infinix GT 10 Pro Review: It Sure Doesn't Feel Like A Budget Phone

The Infinix GT 10 Pro comes from a brand that may not be well known in the UK, but after spending a few weeks with this model - especially after the attractive but broken model I tested last year - maybe it's time for a change. .

It doesn't compare to the best camera phones on the market, but when I review it with budget camera phones, which often sacrifice a lot of performance for long-term promise, I'd say the GT 10 Pro is a delight. It surprised me. . .

I've been using it as my daily phone for over 3 weeks, benchmarking, downloading software, taking photos and using photo and video editing software, taking promotional shots for other products I've reviewed here. I played around with it, testing its main claim of being an affordable gaming phone.

Infinix GT 10 Pro Review: Key Specifications

Infinix GT 10 Pro Review: Design and Display

From the front, the Infinix GT 10 Pro looks like a Sony Xperia clone, especially in the Black variant (Mirage Silver is also available). With its black case and slightly rounded corners, it looks a lot like the Sony Xperia 1V at first glance... until you look at the back.

At the back, you get a lot of lines and shapes, mostly orange and gray, to clearly remind you that this is a gaming-focused phone. In recent years, there are a lot of monochromatic phones on the market, I think this is a refreshing change. Over time this will probably affect some users who don't like Flair, but I'm not friends with those people anymore, so I don't mind. i like it!

The front AMOLED display is 6.67 inches larger and slightly wider than the aforementioned Sony flagship, with an aspect ratio of 20:9. A high resolution of 1080x2400, a pixel density of 395 ppi and a maximum brightness of 900 nits doesn't disappoint flagship models, but is fully comparable to mid-range phones priced at £4-600. The average refresh rate is 120Hz, or the same as what you'll find on the iPhone 15 Pro. There's also an "always-on" option for the display, with a customizable clock or Quick View display. Number of notifications, battery level and current date, just like the latest flagship phones.

So it's clear that this phone punches above its weight in terms of display specifications. But what about other features and cameras?

Infinix GT 10 Pro Review: Features and Performance

I was shocked to see the Infinix GT 10 Pro, which claims to have loads of power and performance (a vague "8+5GB RAM" line on the box, what does that mean?) but uses a MediaTek chipset. Powered by a Snapdragon processor, a measly 256GB of internal storage overall, a microSD card slot, the aforementioned "gaming-optimized" display and 5G compatibility, it's an impressive spec sheet for a £300 sub.

And unlike the Infinix Zero Ultra I tested last year, I didn't experience any stability issues when I loaded up the storage with apps while running multiple apps at once. I'm not sure if it's the updated XOS 13 (based on Android 13) or the updated octa-core processor, but I suspect it's a combination of both.

Fortunately, it has less bloatware than most Android phones, but there are a few apps installed, including some from Infinix, many of which I only used once, just to see what all the fuss was about. However, the gaming hub, XArena, receives many visits from you.

And therein lies the true power of the phone. As I mentioned below in the camera section, this won't be your next pro vlogging machine, but it might be my favorite gaming phone in recent years.

While the screen isn't particularly bright, it's bright enough for any home use (and gaming on the bus) and is very sharp and responsive, thanks to the AMOLED and 120Hz refresh rate, I loved gaming and racing on this phone. With any phone I've used (including the new iPhone and recently tested Xiaomi 13) and the speakers are good for a phone, they have good depth and range. But if you are playing or browsing tiktok or in public I recommend using headphones on any phone. This is basic etiquette, folks.

The benchmark results further underline the impressive capabilities of this phone. The Geekbench 6 tests show better CPU parameters than the Google Pixel 6a, which is slightly higher than the Infinix GT 10 Pro and equal to the Google Pixel 7 Pro, which is at least twice as big. Meanwhile, the GPU scores surpassed the most expensive models from Samsung, Xiaomi, Sony and OnePlus, as well as the Google Pixel 7 Pro, making it a budget offering especially from a graphics perspective.

The camera notch doesn't take away from the overall appeal of the Infinix GT 10 Pro as the larger notch features a triple camera system with a 108MP resolution on the main camera. Next to the lens is an LED strip and flash that shows incoming notifications if you place the phone in front of you. The macro and depth lenses are each described as more sensitive at 2MP, giving you a better idea of ​​what to expect from the camera overall.

The claimed 108MP specification is achieved through some digital techniques (including the "pixel-binning" often used in phone cameras), but the actual images are below those pro-level figures. Colors have good depth and richness and I really enjoyed using the macro lens (I don't think this is a feature that many flagship models still lack). Even daylight images are very bright and sharp, and the various shooting modes produce interesting results.

Overall, it doesn't compare to the best camera phones on the market, but it's effective for social media and good enough for casual family photos, especially given the feature-rich editing suite included with the phone. , which has various editing and filtering options.

The video editor is one of my favorite Infinix features as it includes some built-in "mini-movie" formats, where you can record video footage for each preset, which automatically zooms in and also applies automatic filters. It has different types and "genres" and I really enjoy playing it.

Infinix GT 10 Pro Review: Battery Life

The Infinix GT 10 Pro comes with a 5000 mAh Li-Po battery which is unfortunately non-removable, but fortunately the usage is amazing. With idle or light use the battery lasts for a few days and even with constant use it can easily last a day.

Infinix GT 10 Pro Review: Price

The Infinix GT 10 Pro will cost you between $230 and $270 in the US and between £250 and £280 in the UK, which is actually much cheaper than phones that match the performance of this device, almost all of which you'll find in the £/$400 range and above. .

Should you buy the Infinix GT 10 Pro?

Whether you're a professional, an aspiring vlogger or a smartphone photographer/videographer, the Infinix GT 10 Pro will probably leave you feeling flat. Internal megapixels. Reality - first class. However, as a gaming-focused phone for all general uses, including casual photography and video editing, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more attractive offering. The downside is limited product awareness in Europe and North America, but this phone could help change that a bit…
