Although labeled a gaming phone, the GT 10 Pro does little to justify that tag. The gaming aesthetics on the back and the few software tweaks are cool and all, but you get neither the top notch sustained performance nor the high framerate gaming you'd expect from a phone in the gaming class.
However the phone makes a lot of sense for those looking to get the best possible performance for their money. In India, the handset goes for less than INR 20,000 and the GT 10 Pro is really competitive in that segment.
The only thing that comes close to it in terms of value for money is the Xiaomi Poco X5 Pro. The latter is currently selling for a little over INR 20,000, but offers superior display, faster charging and an ultrawide camera. Even so, the X5 Pro can't match the GT 10 Pro in terms of processing power, though.
The GT 10 Pro also goes against OnePlus's Nord CE 3 Lite in the same price bracket and edges out with a better chipset and nicer OLED display. The two handsets are neck in neck when it comes to camera performance and charging. We believe that the faster chipset and better OLED panel are enough to choose the Infinix over OnePlus' offering.
The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G is a popular choice among buyers in the sub-INR 20,000 category, but beyond the longer software support we struggle to find a compelling reason to go for the Galaxy. It has inferior display, much slower chipset and painfully slow charging. The still unreleased Galaxy F34 is probably a better pick as it features a huge 6,000 mAh battery and equally nice OLED panel. However, the Exynos 1280 is no match for the Dimensity 8050.
A more valid option outside of India would the Galaxy A34, but again you will be getting a more expensive phone with less capable hardware. The software alone could make the A34 a better fit for those looking for a smoother experience, though.
So the Infinix GT 10 Pro is not a great smartphone, but is a very competitive midrange. It offers the best performance for its price, a solid OLED panel, faster-than-usual charging, 256GB internal storage and dependable camera performance.
Now the question remains how would people feel about buying a regular mid-ranger with those over the top gaming aesthetics. But in the age where all phones look so similar the stand-out Cyber-Mecha design is more of a pro than a con.
