For many of us Malaysians, mobile gaming has become a favourite pastime. However, to get the best quality experience for your mobile gaming, you may need to get a flagship-class gaming phone and most of them are often priced at around RM3K or higher.
What would you say if you could not only get a gaming smartphone with the latest gaming-ready Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset complete with trigger buttons but also for below RM2.3K? Not only does the POCO F4 GT have all that, it also has a lot more other features so let's check out these reasons to consider the POCO F4 GT as your next gaming phone below.
#1 Is it really priced below RM2.3K? Yes, even more so if you're an early-bird!
The one feature we and many other Malaysian POCO fans will like the most is the price, so not only is the top-tier 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant normally priced at RM2499 there's also the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage version going for RM2299. That means that even if you go for the lower-end version, you still end up with a flagship-class gaming phone with the latest tech specs for below RM2.3K.
In addition, POCO are also offering a special early bird price for a limited time only of RM1999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage version and RM2199 for the top-tier 12GB RAM + 256GB storage version for a single day on 28 April 2022.

#2 Top-tier performance yet cool under pressure
Of course, highly demanding mobile games require a powerful chipset. Not only is the POCO F4 GT equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, it allows you to max out the visual settings in nearly all your games, so you can fully experience all they have to offer in smooth lag-free performance.
The POCO F4 GT also comes with the latest LiquidCool Technology 3.0. This cooling system utilizes dual vapour chamber cooling with a surface coverage of 4860mm2 inside, which keeps the phone from getting too hot even when under pressure.
#3 Yep, there really are magnetic pop-up trigger buttons!
The POCO F4 GT has plenty of features that make you think "this is a gaming phone". One of these main features would be the magnetic pop-up triggers, which are two extra buttons strategically located on one side, to make the phone feel like a game controller.
While you'd normally use these trigger buttons to shoot your weapons, these trigger buttons can also be customized for a variety of uses. Not only can they be used as extra buttons in mobile games, but also for other functions in regular apps. For instance, you can use one as a dedicated shutter button for the camera app!
#4 An Awesome display especially made for gamers
High-end mobile games should excel in visuals so gaming phones should have awesome displays. The POCO F4 GT doesn't disappoint in this area. Specifically, the phone features a 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ (1080x2400) display that delivers true-to-life colours.
It also has a 120HZ refresh rate and 480Hz touch sampling rate so it should be sensitive enough to capture the fastest of reflexes while also providing top-notch buttery smooth scrolling. There's also HDR10+ support, and more so you can also enjoy movies as you want them.
#5 Gamer aesthetics
How do you know a smartphone is a gaming phone? Well, they usually look the part. Gaming phones tend to have designs that make them stand out, and the POCO F4 GT certainly does.
As you can see, the phone has a sleek appearance that looks great. If you want an eye-popping gaming phone, the Cyber Yellow colour is the one we'd go for.
Awesome, right? The POCO F4 GT has a lot of other gaming features like 120W fast charging, CyberEngine, and more. But the one the thing we like best is the price. As mentioned earlier, the starting price of RM2299 easily makes it one of the most affordable flagship-class gaming phones available in 2022.
In addition, there's that early bird price of RM1999 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage version and RM2199 for the 12GB RAM + 256GB storage version available from 28 April 2022 for a single day as well, so don't miss out!
