POCO F3 GT review: The obvious alternative to OnePlus Nord 2

by Jeremy

The mid-range segment has seen a flurry of launches over the last six weeks, with the Realme X7 Max, Reno 6 Pro, and the OnePlus Nord 2 making their debut. POCO has also thrown its hat in the ring with its latest device, the F3 GT.

The F3 GT uses the standard POCO F3 as a foundation, but you won’t find a lot of similarities between the two phones. There’s a good reason for this: the POCO F3 GT is a rebranded version of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition, and as a result, you’ll find a few unique features that make it stand out from the rest of the phones in POCO’s portfolio.


POCO’s playbook over the last 18 months has been to rebrand existing Redmi devices and tweak a few things around design and software, and it has largely worked. With the F3 GT, POCO is aiming to offer one of the best mid-range phones available today. India’s budget segment is the driver for most phone sales, and POCO says that the premium segment (phones over ₹40,000 ($540)) witnessed a huge 35% uptick over the last 12 months.

But the mid-range segment (₹20,000 ($270) to ₹40,000 ($540)) hasn’t seen as much momentum, but because of inherent potential in this category, brands are now turning their focus here. Of course, that means there’s an abundance of choice if you’re looking to buy a phone for under ₹40,000. With so many great options already available, does the POCO F3 GT manage to stand out in this increasingly crowded segment? Let’s find out.
