Poco F3 GT launched: MediaTek 1200, Gaming AirTiggers, aggressive pricing. The OnePlus Nord 2 announced yesterday has already lost the charm with Poco launching their F3 GT. While Poco’s new phone looks to cater to gamers, but the overall offering can be a clear winner for anyone. The phone seems to check all the boxes and undercuts the pricing as well.
The Vapor chamber cooling brings in the cooling aspect that Poco always follows. I am not a fan of this marketing but it is good to see companies doing something to keep the temps in check. However, how effective it is only time will tell.
Not every phone is a gaming phone but there is only one Gaming phone leader who does it right and i.e. ASUS ROG Phone 5. ASUS ROG Phone is hitting the right mark for years now. Poco’s new phone claims and comparison aren’t accurate but let’s see how it performs.

Poco F3 GT is a rebranded Redmi phone. So, for anyone who doesn’t know Poco and Redmi are a Sub-brand of Xiaomi. This works just like how Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, Realme, iQOO are the same. A different company with a different outlook yet they are same or rebrand of one another. However, how OnePlus started to offer some good phones during their Inception. Poco is trying to do the same.
