The most attractive design belongs to the Realme GT Master Edition. First of all, it is thinner and lighter because it comes with a smaller display and a smaller battery. Further, it is available in a special Voyager Grey color option sporting a leather back cover designed by the known Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Thanks to this design, it is definitely one of the most original and suggestive phones in the midrange segment. The POCO X4 Pro 5G is chunkier and bigger, but on the other hand, it comes with the IP53 certification making it dust resistant and splash resistant. There is definitely no challenge: the Realme mid-ranger has a better design.
The specifications of the two displays are very close to each other. They both feature AMOLED panels with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a 120 Hz refresh rate. The POCO X4 Pro 5G adds the HDR10 certification for great image quality on streaming platforms (as well as stereo speakers for a better audio experience), while the Realme GT Master Edition adds an in-display fingerprint reader (it is side-mounted on the POCO device). The POCO X4 Pro 5G is supposed to provide a better image quality thanks to the HDR10 certification, but the Realme handset still comes with a great display and a lot of people won’t notice the difference.
If you are looking for the device with the highest performance, then you should go for the Realme GT Master Edition without thinking twice. The reason is simple: it has a better processor. We are talking about the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, one of the best midrange SoCs, running at a max frequency of 2.4 GHz. Unlike this device, the POCO X4 Pro 5G has expandable storage, but its Snapdragon 695 5G makes it less performing. Despite the POCO handset launched in February 2022, both the phones still run Android 11 out of the box. However, they will both be updated to Android 12. The Realme GT Master Edition already started to receive a stable update in the Indian market and it will come soon in the European market as well.
If we talk about the rear cameras, then POCO X4 Pro 5G wins the comparison thanks to a better 108 MP main sensor. It is able to capture a higher level of detail in a lot of scenarios if compared to the 64 MP main camera of its rival. The secondary cameras are the same: an 8 MP ultrawide lens and a 2 MP macro shooter. When it comes to the front cameras, the Realme GT Master Edition is the king with its 32 MP snapper.
The biggest advantage of the POCO X4 Pro 5G is the presence of a bigger battery: with a capacity of 5000 mAh, it is able to last longer on a single charge. There are no important differences in terms of charging speeds because the charging technologies are similar.
