It's been over a year since I've owned this phone, and it is godlike. The battery lasts a full day with a little bit of pressure (need to charge it once through out the day to have it last with heavy usage), the charging speeds are insanely good because it supports up to 67W, doesn't heat up much whilst charging though. The screen is the weakest point in my opinion, the 144 hz refresh rate can't be achieved without any fiddling around with stuff you're usually not gonna fiddle around with thanks to Xiaomi limiting POCO phones more than normal Xiaomi branded ones, the brightness isn't bad though! It can be troublesome in direct sunlight but in general i like it. chipset is monstrous, runs games like CODM, PUBGM and other titles really well, though it is pretty good at emulation as well (runs PS2 games like TXRD2 at 2x resolution no problem at a constant 60 FPS), camera is fine but nothing crazy, noticeably high detail when using the 64 MP mode. Unfortunately looks like it won't get many updates after hyperOS drops for it which is around Q2 of this year...
And I don't really recommend this phone to anyone anymore as it is generally old now, getting something like the X6 Pro or F5 is a much much smarter choice.
deRykcihC, 24 Oct 2023I tried my friend's X4 GT and found out quite a lot of apps locked the FPS at 60, at leas... moreYeah that's in general an issue with MIUI phones and especially ones with the Poco launcher. There are ways to bypass it but most methods are temporary.
Ilya, 22 Jan 2024Avoid buying this phone...after 6 months, my charging went from 67w to 18w and hasn't swi... moreBeen using it since January of last year, haven't experienced this issue. Though after downloading MIUI 14 the animation displayed 65W instead of 67W, kinda weird but it is still charging at 67W.
Ilya, 22 Jan 2024Avoid buying this phone...after 6 months, my charging went from 67w to 18w and hasn't swi... moreNot easy to predict, different people/unit different outcome, mine is doing well all round except charging time increase to about 60 minutes for a full charge
Avoid buying this phone...after 6 months, my charging went from 67w to 18w and hasn't switched back. Avoid avoid avoid.
Hopefully soon Hyper OS...

deRykcihC, 24 Oct 2023I tried my friend's X4 GT and found out quite a lot of apps locked the FPS at 60, at leas... moreMine is not, you may want to check the display settings first. Check the battery saver also, It is also one of the culprits that controls the screen refresh rate.
I was surprised that its selfie camera has a 60fps mode as well :) Which is not indicated here.
Duderinoat, 03 Oct 2022What the f*ck. I thought this phone had full DC dimming. Notebookcheck says it has PWM of abou... moreIt has 50k response in the review. Is this good or bad? Should we look for the zero response models ? I want a no pwm model also
I tried my friend's X4 GT and found out quite a lot of apps locked the FPS at 60, at least not 120hz or 144hz, most obvious one is between YouTube and the Home screen, one is laggy and one is smooth. Can anyone verify that?
Oct security patch is here ;-)
I have terrible cellular network signal with this phone. Also, WiFi signal is weaker compared to the F2 Pro even though I'm using them at the same place. Just poor network reception all around.

Battery or no battery drain. I have my phone for last 3-4 years. Still same battery inside 1.5 year ago i did all adb tweaks. Still have SOT 10 hours. I just imagine if i did that from day one. 15 SOT easily. Uninstalling all apps collecting logs in background. This particular phone i can surely gain additional 5 hours without any problem. LCD white background black text. Up to 400 nits as max limited. Still readable. Samsung 21 ultra had problems with 10 hours SOT while mine on 4000mah after 3-4 years same on 10 SOT.
The screen on my Poco X4 GT has started flickering. Changing the refresh rate isn't helping. Has anyone any idea what to do about it? It's distracting, annoying and tiresome.
