Infinix GT 10 Pro Performance Review

The Infinix GT 10 Pro is the cheapest gaming-oriented smartphone. It comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 8050 SoC and 8GB RAM — all this at Rs 19,999. While our full review is in progress, here’s a detailed look at the performance you can expect from the phone.

  • The Infinix GT 10 Pro is priced at Rs 19,999
  • In BGMI, you get the 90fps option
  • You can go up to Max graphics settings in Free Fire Max

At Rs 19,999, the Infinix GT 10 Pro is the most affordable gaming-centric smartphone in the market as of today. It focuses on not only the internals but also the externals with a very outgoing design language, which seems a bit familiar — but also has the tendency to entice new-age gamers. Inside, you get a MediaTek Dimensity 8050 processor, and the phone comes in a single variant.

While our full review of the Infinix GT 10 Pro is in progress, let’s take a deeper look at the performance side of the phone — with more emphasis on its gaming abilities.

Specifications and benchmarks

The MediaTek Dimensity 8050 is based on TSMC’s 6nm fabrication process. It’s an octa-core processor with a clock speed of 3.0GHz. The same chipset can also be found in the Tecno Camon 20 Pro and 20 Premier 5G.

As for alternatives in this price range, you can find two devices with a similar interest in performance. The Redmi K50i (Review) with the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 and the Poco X5 Pro (Review) with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G.

Since the latter is closest to the Infinix GT 10 Pro (in terms of pricing), we pitted them against each other in a gaming comparison video. You can watch the video below if you are confused between the two.

The Infinix GT 10 Pro is available in India in a single variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. You also get gimmicks such as RAM expansion up to 8GB.

Now, let’s get into the brass tacks. The table below should help you understand the performance you can expect from the Infinix GT 10 Pro. For more context, these numbers are more than what the Poco X5 Pro could return during our testing period.

Benchmarks Result
AnTuTu v10 724071
PCMark 10 16130
Geekbench 6 1014 – Single-Core, 2713 – Multi-Core
Wild Life Extreme Stress Test 1315 – Best loop score
Wild Life Extreme 1280
Sling Shot Extreme (Open GL) Maxed Out
Car Chase 38fps
Manhattan 111fps
T-Rex 119fps

In everyday usage, such as doom-scrolling social media apps or reading articles on Chrome, the phone does not cause any trouble. Additionally, it handles multitasking and switching between different apps neatly.

BGMI and Free Fire Max Graphics

The gaming prowess of the Infinix GT 10 Pro at the price it comes is quite commendable. It pushes the gaming agenda further by lacing the phone with games aesthetics, but we will discuss that in detail in the full review. For now, let’s focus on the performance front.

We tested the Infinix GT 10 Pro in our Extreme Gaming Test, which entails a two-hour-long non-stop gameplay with the AC turned off. This helps us determine the thermal situation of the phone under loads.

In BGMI, the Infinix GT 10 Pro can go up to HDR graphics and Ultra frame rates. Unfortunately, the Ultra HD graphics option is not available.

BGMI Graphics FPS
HDR + Ultra 40fps, without much fuss
HD + Ultra 40fps, no apparent frame drops
Smooth + Extreme 60fps, but with inconsistencies
Smooth + 90fps 90fps, no major issues

Initially, we tested BGMI with the 2.5 update, which caused some stutters in the above-mentioned settings. However, after the 2.7 update kicked in, it was all smooth sailing. We did not notice any hint of lag or stutters during the gameplay. Remember that all of our tests were done with the screen recording enabled.

With the graphics set to Smooth and frame rates set to Extreme, we noticed some inconsistencies in the gameplay. This was apparent in both the BGMI versions. There were times when we lost a duel because of stutters.

Now, with the screen recording disabled — Smooth and 90fps preset gave us more consistent results, with the minimum drop being 88fps. So, it is quite possible when recording the screen, the Infinix GT 10 Pro tends to face issues.

Coming to Free Fire Max, the phone supports Max graphics, High Res and High FPS in the settings. The phone gave us constant 90fps with screen recording disabled.

As for Call of Duty Mobile, the Infinix GT 10 Pro can go up to Very High graphics and Max frame rates. While we only indulged in a few Team Deathmatch rounds, the performance here was very consistent at 60fps.

Farlight 84, on the other hand, was a bit disappointing on the Infinix GT 10 Pro. You can go up to Extreme graphics and Extreme frame rates. Sadly, our fps meter stopped working with this game, so we do not have numbers. We experienced stutters and lag throughout. At one point, it was almost unplayable.

During our extreme gaming test, we also noticed the phone reaching temperatures of 42 degrees — this could also play a part in the sudden dip in performance. Furthermore, while running benchmarks, the phone’s back panel was seemingly warm. So, we just hoped Infinix would focus on the thermal situation slightly more.

As for the battery, after playing games continuously for two hours, the Infinix GT 10 Pro dropped down to 58% from 100%.


The smartphone gaming market keeps evolving with demanding games introduced to the store. It’s commendable to even think of a gaming smartphone in the sub-Rs 20,000 price range. At an asking price of Rs 19,999, the Infinix GT 10 Pro is an easy recommendation for casual gamers.

Additionally, the closest performance-oriented phone, the Poco X5 Pro, still does not have the 90fps option in BGMI.
