Introduction and specs
Infinix isn’t a new smartphone company, but it only recently started making inroads in markets outside Africa. As it expands its presence the smartphone maker also tries to cover as many market segments as possible, even niche segments like gaming smartphones. Enter the Infinix GT 10 Pro – an affordable phone aiming to deliver solid in a body with decidedly gaming aesthetics.
The GT 10 Pro is strongly related to the Infinix Note 30 VIP, but dials down the charging capabilities and comes with a different body and improved cooling. The new phone latter settles for relatively tame 45W charging – slower than what the Note 30 VIP can do wirelessly. And since we already have the charging test for the VIP you can use the other parts of this review if you are in the market for the GT 10 Pro’s sibling as well.
Let’s not get back to the review. The GT 10 Pro stands out with an unusual and catchy design. It does slightly remind us of the Nothing Phone (1) and (2) with its transparent back and LED lighting, but obviously the general aesthetics are different here.

A MediaTek Dimensity 8050 chipset is running the show. Announced just a couple of months ago, this is mostly a rebranded Dimensity 1300, which was one flagship-grade SoC. A bright 6.67-inch OLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate completes the gaming experience with a fairly fast 360Hz touch-sampling rate.
It wouldn’t be a gaming phone without a set of stereo speakers, of course, and the GT 10 Pro even gets some DTS tuning for those.
Last but not least, the GT 10 Pro features a rarely seen in this class 108MP main camera with a large 1/1.67″ sensor. It’s the only fully functional camera at the back, but if it manages to comfortably outperforms the competition many will probably be willing to live without an ultrawide shooter. We’ll see about that in a short while, but first let’s open the box and see what’s inside.
Unboxing the Infinix GT 10 Pro
The GT 10 Pro comes in a generous retail box containing not only the user manuals, the USB-A to USB-C cable and 45W charger, but also a pair of wired earphones.
The box also contains a transparent silicone case, which provides some protection without concealing the design of the back.
