Infinix GT 20 Pro vs POCO X6 Pro – A Gaming Comparison | @manilashaker

Many of you may already be familiar with the latest release from Infinix, the Infinix GT 20 Pro, which has gained attention as the official tournament phone of the MLBB Pro League with dual chipset. It’s priced just under 16k, making it quite an interesting choice. On the other hand, we have the POCO X6 Pro, another budget-friendly gaming smartphone priced slightly higher at 18k.

Both phones, the Infinix GT 20 Pro and the POCO X6 Pro, were put to the test to see how well they perform for gaming, their looks, screen quality, and camera. If you’re thinking about getting one of these phones, you’re in the right place! 

Processor & Gaming Performance

To start off, are you a Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) player? If so, let me share my experience with both the Infinix GT 20 Pro powered by MediaTek Dimensity 8200 Ultimate and the POCO X6 Pro powered by MediaTek Dimensity 8300 Ultra when it comes to playing MLBB.

I was eager to test both devices in action. Particularly, I was intrigued by the Infinix GT 20 Pro, which boasts features like a dedicated gaming display chip (Pixelworks X5) and a 120fps stable frame-rate engine. What also caught my attention was the cool backlight feature on the Infinix GT 20 Pro as the app was launching.

Setting both phones to the Ultra option for frame rate and graphics, I geared up for a gaming session. Immediately, I observed the Infinix GT 20 Pro’s display showcasing more vibrant colors compared to the POCO X6 Pro, enhancing the overall visual appeal of the gaming experience.

Both devices impressed me with their loud and clear audio output. The POCO X6 Pro offered a wide range of sound, providing a balanced audio experience, while the Infinix GT 20 Pro delivered an immersive audio experience, enhancing the gaming atmosphere. The speakers on both phones are top-notch and contribute perfectly to the overall gaming experience. 

I appreciated that the Infinix GT 20 Pro stayed cool even after playing two consecutive games of Mobile Legends. The phone remained smooth and enjoyable to use. Though I noticed a slight warmth near the cameras after about 1 hour of play, it didn’t affect the overall experience.

Playing Mobile Legends: Bang Bang on the POCO X6 Pro under the same settings was equally enjoyable. I experienced no lags or frame drops, definitely a smooth gaming session. However, I did notice that the phone started to warm up slightly after about 20 minutes of gameplay, particularly around the camera area as well. Despite this, the device continued to perform well and provided a satisfactory gaming experience.

It does not stop there, as I also tried playing Call of Duty Mobile on both phones. The Infinix GT 20 Pro can definitely handle ultra-high graphics combined with the max frame rate option in the settings.

As for the POCO X6 Pro, it automatically switches to Medium Graphic Quality when you select Ultra frame rate. However, you can still choose the Max frame rate option if you really want high-quality graphics.

Both phones offer a pleasant gaming experience with Call of Duty Mobile, and there’s only a slight increase in phone temperature that isn’t bothersome.

Design & Display

Upon unboxing, the Infinix packaging stood out with its unique and aesthetically pleasing design, giving off a clear “gaming smartphone” vibe. As I held the phone, I was impressed by its unique, shiny, and smooth design. While initially, I thought there might be some texture, I appreciated the smooth back as it avoids the accumulation of dirt.

The GT 20 Pro features a 6.78 inches bezel-less 144Hz FHD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2436. The customizable RGB LEDs on the back added to the satisfaction of the design, allowing for personalization and enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal.

On the other hand, the POCO X6 Pro comes with a 6.67 inches Dolby Vision 120Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1220 x 2712. The X6 Pro offers a more straightforward and classy appearance, appealing to those who prefer minimalist design aesthetics.

Its smooth and shiny finish not only enhances its sophisticated look but also adds to its comfortable feel when held. Additionally, the POCO X6 Pro has a glass front protected by Gorilla Glass 5, providing extra durability and scratch resistance.

Both phones prioritize durability without compromising on weight, with the POCO X6 Pro weighing a lighter 190 g and the Infinix GT 20 Pro at 194 grams. Additionally, both devices feature IP54 rating, making them dust and splash resistant.

On the right side of each phone, you’ll find the volume rockers and the power button, providing convenient access for adjusting settings and turning the device on or off. At the bottom, you’ll find a speaker grille, microphone, SIM tray, and USB port, all conveniently grouped together for easy access. Additionally, both phones feature a speaker at the top, with the Infinix GT 20 Pro featuring a JBL logo beside its speaker.

I also appreciate the brightness of both displays, which ensures an enjoyable gaming experience even in well-lit environments. The POCO X6 Pro boasts a peak brightness of 1800 nits, while the Infinix GT 20 Pro offers a peak brightness of 1300 nits.


Now onto the rear cameras, the Infinix GT 20 Pro’s 108 MP camera excels in rendering real and vibrant colors. Even when zoomed in up to 10 times, the pictures maintain sharpness, allowing you to read small text easily. The camera captures fine details well, including tiny elements like specks of dust.

The portrait camera is a standout feature, adding a professional touch to your photos. The autofocus is user-friendly; a single tap on the screen is all it takes, which is highly appreciated.

Another noteworthy feature is the Document mode, which could be a lifesaver for students. It captures text with impressive clarity and without any hassle.

The 32 MP front camera also performs admirably, ensuring that your photos are crisp and clear while accurately capturing shadows for a more dynamic image.

When it comes to shooting videos, the stabilization feature is particularly impressive. It effectively minimizes shaky footage, keeping your videos smooth even when you’re on the move. However, in some instances of excessive shaking, there might be slight blurriness in the video, but it’s generally not a major issue.

The Dual Video feature is a game-changer, especially for vloggers. This feature allows you to simultaneously record from both the front and rear cameras. It’s incredibly useful and adds a dynamic element to your videos that was previously difficult to achieve.

On the other hand, the POCO X6 Pro’s 64 MP rear camera also offers great color and stabilized footage when shaky. Its performance in daylight is pleasing, accurately capturing shadows. It also supports zooming out up to 0.6x.

In low-light conditions, a side-by-side comparison shows that the POCO X6 Pro produces slightly dimmer images compared to the Infinix GT 20 Pro. The GT 20 Pro reveals dark areas more clearly than the X6 Pro, though the difference is not significant.

When it comes to taking portrait photos, the POCO X6 Pro’s camera does produce a bokeh effect, blurring the background to make the subject stand out.

However, when I compared it directly with the portrait mode of the Infinix GT 20 Pro, I noticed a difference. The GT 20 Pro seemed to blur the background even more, making the focused subject stand out even better.

The POCO X6 Pro’s 16MP selfie camera does a great job capturing natural colors, like the redness on my face. It makes the pictures look genuine and fresh, without adding too many fancy effects. The photos look real and not overly edited, giving them a nice, natural vibe.
