Infinix GT 20 Pro Review: Pricing and Availability in India

Infinix GT 20 Pro Review: Design and Build Quality

The Infinix GT 20 Pro is available in three colorways: Mecha Blue, Mecha Orange, and Mecha Silver. I got the Mecha Orange variant for review, which features an RGB light setup on the back. The Infinix GT 20 Pro’s design appears to be a combination of the Nothing Phone (2) and the Tecno Pova 6 Pro.

There are no significant design changes compared to its predecessor, the Infinix GT 10 Pro, except for including the RGB light. However, the Mecha Loop RGB lighting is a neat inclusion and can be used for notifications, music, and incoming calls. Additionally, I enabled the GT Game Boot toggle in the settings to activate light effects during gaming.

This phone’s glossy back panel attracts many fingerprints. However, since the colour is somewhat dark, it doesn’t appear untidy unless light falls on it.

Design Specifications
Weight 194 grams
IP Rating IP54
Thickness 8.2mm
Port and Button Placements Bottom: Speaker grille, Secondary microphone, USB Type-C, SIM Tray

Top: Primary microphone, IR blaster, Secondary speaker

Right Side: Power button and volume buttons

Regarding comfort, the Infinix GT 20 Pro is ergonomically sane. Despite the boxy design, the in-hand grip is quite good and comfortable. It also has a slim profile, making it suitable for one-handed use.

At 194 grams, the Infinix GT 20 Pro is three grams heavier than the recently launched Realme GT 6T, whereas the Poco F6 is 14 grams lighter. Despite its weight, the phone does not feel overly heavy in the hand, and the weight distribution is also done well.

I accidentally dropped the phone from my pocket, but it did not incur any scratches or dents. So, occasional drops should be fine, but using a case is advisable if you are as clumsy as me.

Infinix GT 20 Pro Review: Display and Audio

The Infinix GT 20 Pro lives up to its gaming standards by including a 144Hz refresh rate panel. The only other smartphone that comes with such a high refresh rate is the Motorola Edge 40 Neo. Rest of the smartphones in this price range mostly come with 120Hz. The 6.78-inch AMOLED display offered a smooth scrolling experience without noticeable lags or stutters.

Display Specifications
Size 6.78-inch
Resolution 1080×2400 Pixels
Refresh Rate 144Hz
Peak Brightness Claimed: 1300 nits, Tested: 577 nits
Minimum Brightness 03 nits

The display is bright both indoors and outdoors. Under direct sunlight, you may need to adjust the viewing angle to read important notifications or scroll through Instagram.

Screen preferences such as Eye Care and High Brightness Mode are available in the settings to improve the viewing experience. Eye Care adjusts the screen’s colour to help reduce eye strain, while High Brightness Mode allows the brightness to exceed the maximum level achievable with manual adjustments.

Infinix GT 20 Pro Display

I binge-watched Heeramandi on Netflix, and the panel produces crisp videos with rich details and close-to-accurate colours. I also watched high-quality videos on YouTube, which delivered results similar to those of Netflix. The Netflix app supports Widevine L1 on this phone, however there are no HDR capabilities. So, if you consume a lot of multimedia, the display experience won’t disappoint.

The Infinix GT 20 Pro features dual stereo speakers tuned by JBL. The audio is generally clear, but at higher levels, the audio can get a bit distorted. In my testing, around 80 percent volume was ideal for listening to songs or watching content.

Infinix GT 20 Pro Review: Performance and Software

This device runs on the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 Ultimate SoC, a solid chipset for daily multitasking and gaming. Tasks like answering calls, chatting on WhatsApp, or scrolling through Instagram reels is an easy task for the phone.

However, when the battery level drops below 20 per cent, you might encounter some lags and stutters even with the battery saver mode turned off. Additionally, the phone tends to warm up in such instances. It’s advisable to charge it as soon as it hits the 20 percent mark. This not only preserves battery life but also prevents lags and stutters.

Hardware Specifications
Processor MediaTek Dimensity 8200 Ultimate
Storage Up to 256GB, UFS 3.1
Storage Test 943510
CPU Throttling Test 74 percent of its max performance
Software Version XOS 14, based on Android 14

Two years of OS updates and three years of security patches

Connectivity Details Dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.3

The Infinix GT 20 Pro scored 943,510 points in synthetic benchmarks. To add more context to these numbers, the OnePlus Nord CE4 and the iQOO Z7 Pro scored nearly 9 lakh points in the Antutu benchmark. That said, the Infinix GT 20 Pro remains the leader in the under Rs 25,000 price segment in terms of performance. After the CPU throttling test was conducted, the phone’s temperature reached 37 degrees Celsius in an air-conditioned environment, which is warm but not at all concerning numbers.

Now, let’s focus on this phone’s selling point: its gaming performance. I spent almost two hours playing these games on the Infinix GT 20 Pro

The phone was fully charged for my BGMI session. The table below details the settings, temperature, and results obtained.

Settings FPS Temperature Result
Smooth + Extreme+ Maximum: 90fps

Minimum: 81fps

Room: 31°C

Back Panel: 38°C
Camera: 36°C

Display: 39°C

The Infinix GT 20 Pro was warming up, but the experience was smooth.
HD + Extreme Maximum: 60fps

Minimum: 57fps

Room: 30°C

Back Panel: 39°C
Camera: 41°C

Display: 42°C

The phone was consistently sound at 60 fps in these settings, which is good.

While playing BGMI, features such as Esports mode are available, which disables all notifications and incoming calls. Enabling this mode benefits those who want to concentrate solely on the game. Overall, playing BGMI for an hour was smooth to a certain extent, and the highest settings consistently provided results at 90fps without any major lags. It’s a commendable feat for the GT 20 Pro, considering other phones in this category don’t have the Extreme+ option enabled. This is also thanks to their dedicated gaming chip, made with PixelWorks.

Next, I played Call of Duty: Mobile, and deathmatches on this phone were effortless. Everything, from eliminating opponents to navigating the game environment to locate enemies, felt perfect. Check out the table below to view the results obtained.

Settings FPS Temperature Result
Low + Ultra (This is the maximum setting) Maximum: 90fps

Minimum: 80fps

Room: 31°C

Back Panel: 41°C
Camera: 42°C

Display: 42°C

I didn’t experience any significant frame drops. When I got killed, the frame rate only dipped to a minimum of 80fps.

With the Infinix GT 20 Pro, I also got a gaming kit that included a cooling fan. Attaching it to the phone requires a case and a USB Type-C to Type-C cable, both of which are included in the box. The cooling fan functions like an air conditioner for the phone. It massively helps bring down the temperature of the phone, and also leaves a cooling sensation on the back panel. The included GT Mecha Case is also well-built and comfortable to hold. Overall, the gaming experience is quite smooth, and this phone provides exactly what avid gamers need.

Infinix GT 20 Pro Software

The Infinix GT 20 Pro runs on XOS 14, based on Android 14, offering numerous customisation options. You can choose from various themes, static and live wallpapers, colour options for volume sliders, and lock screen customisations to add your personal touch. The phone comes with Infinix apps that can be uninstalled, and fortunately, there are no unnecessary bloatware apps, which is very impressive.

Infinix has promised two years of OS updates and three years of security patches for this phone, which is good but could be improved.

Infinix GT 20 Pro Review: Cameras

The Infinix GT 20 Pro features a 108-megapixel primary camera with OIS, a 2-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth camera. The primary camera captures photos with rich details and vibrant colours, although red tones tend to appear excessively saturated when captured with this phone. The photos also have a controlled dynamic range, so the exposure and shadows are also maintained well in most situations. The photos are suitable for social media with minimal need for editing.

Camera Specifications
Primary Camera 108-megapixel Primary camera with OIS(f/1.8)
Secondary Camera 2-megapixel Macro camera
Tertiary Camera 2-megapixel Depth camera
Selfie Camera 32-megapixel Selfie camera (f/2.2)
Video Recording Capabilities Up to 4K at 60fps

This phone supports digital zoom up to 3x; however, the pictures often exhibit grains around the edges. The portrait mode performs well with good edge detection and natural background blur, especially for human subjects. However, it would have been a great package if they included an ultra-wide angle camera by skipping out on both the other cameras. But, this would have impacted the price.

The photos are grainy in low-light conditions, which is particularly noticeable with browns and greens captured at night. Additionally, capturing crisp shots with the Night Mode requires steady hands. Slight and sudden movements will result in a blurry image.

For selfies, there’s a 32-megapixel front camera that subtly smooths the skin without overdoing it. The skin tones are generally accurate in most scenarios, even showing the pores on your face. If you want social media-ready selfies, filters are available. Additionally, portrait selfies are quite acceptable, with average edge detection.

Infinix GT 20 Pro Review: Battery and Charging

The Infinix GT 20 Pro has a 5000mAh battery and comes with a 45W charger in the box. When I started charging it from zero, it reached 51 percent in just 30 minutes. Fully charging the device took exactly 1 hour and 3 minutes, which is still a good number.

Battery Specifications
Battery Capacity 5000mAh
Charging Adapter 45W, charger in-the-box
Charging Time 1 hour 3 minutes
PCMark Battery Test 7 hours 21 minutes

In the PCMark battery test, the phone lasted for 7 hours and 21 minutes, which is average. In comparison, the Infinix GT 10 Pro, released last August, lasted 8 hours and 5 minutes—39 minutes longer than the GT 20 Pro. Moreover, other phones in this price segment, like the Lava Blaze Curve 5G lasted for 9 hours and 38 minutes, which is really good.

When I ran synthetic benchmarks, the GT 20 Pro’s battery life dropped to 69 per cent from a full charge. Although benchmarks consume a lot of battery, a drop of 31 per cent seems excessive.

With moderate usage, the phone gave me a backup of around 6-7 hours, however, this number might get lower with heavy usage.

Infinix GT 20 Pro Review: Verdict

The Infinix GT 20 Pro is a budget-friendly gaming smartphone. It offers an excellent gaming experience, consistently delivering 90fps in most cases, along with great day-to-day performance for tasks like calling, texting, and scrolling through Instagram reels. Beyond gaming, it also features an extraordinary display and acceptable cameras for the price.

However, it lacks an ultra-wide camera, and low-light photography is average at best. Additionally, the similar design language compared to its predecessor may not be appealing, though the new Mecha RGB loop lighting is a nice touch. Battery life is another area where you might need to compromise slightly.

Competitors like the iQOO Z7 Pro, OnePlus Nord CE 4 5G, Realme 12 Pro, and Poco X6 Pro offer strong overall experiences. That said, the Infinix GT 20 Pro covers ‘almost’ all the bases in the sub-Rs 25,000 price range and is an excellent choice.
