Camera advantage for the F4

Sharing the same front camera of 20 MP and aperture f / 2.4, again we find the same sensors in the two models, which are the following:

  • 64 MP Sony IMX686 main sensor and f/1.9 focal aperture
  • Secondary sensor Ultra wide angle of 8 MP and focal aperture f / 2.2
  • 2 MP Macro tertiary sensor and f/2.4 focal aperture

Here the difference lies in the fact that the main sensor of the Poco F4 adds an Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) to the set, being the first of the brand to boast of it to achieve sharper captures.

Storage, connectivity and software

The two phones are for sale with 128 or 256 GB of storage, being compatible with 5G networks and having Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, Dual GPS, WiFi 6 or infrared port connectivity. They also have two speakers compatible with Dolby Surround and run on Android 12, although only the Poco F4 arrives with MIUI 13 in stores.

While the POCO F4 GT maintains the Snapdragon 870 of the previous model, the Poco F3, accompanied by 6 and 8 GB of RAM, the GT variant of the phone mounts the best CPU of 2022 , that is, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that is also It is accompanied by more RAM memory, that is, with 8 and 12 GB.

Neither in capacity nor in charging speed is the Poco F4 capable of matching what we find in the GT model. Compared to the 4,500 mAh of that one, the gaming mobile offers 4700 mAh but the best is in its charging system , since its 120W are almost twice as fast as the 67W of the Poco F4, something that is also very good.

Of course, both models have the charger included in the box.

Gaming extras

Finally we have those little extras that we usually find on mobiles whose objective is to spend long gaming sessions.

In this case , the Poco F4 GT is a smartphone equipped with physical triggers that we can configure to assign the actions that we want while we play. In addition, it has a liquid cooling system that prevents overheating more efficiently than its catalog brother.

Which one wins?

It’s pretty clear that the Poco F4 GT, with its better processor and better battery, is the better of the two devices. In addition, its screen, even if only slightly, is somewhat better than that of its little brother. However, keep in mind that your camera does not have OIS and that its price is 150 times higher.
