Upon unboxing the Infinix GT 10 Pro 5G, the phone boasts a glass-like finish on the back, yet it's crafted from polycarbonate. The front showcases a sizable display, bordered by a metallic frame as the rear panel of the Infinix GT 10 Pro is particularly intriguing. Transparent with internal orange strips and varying shades of blue, it houses a sizable camera module with three cutouts, two of which are substantial, and one is smaller. An LED light, resembling a ring, adds to the aesthetics. The camera module also features broader orange lines compared to the rest of the back panel.
While the rear panel is visually appealing, it does attract smudges easily. The advantage is that these smudges aren't too noticeable unless examined closely. There are also a protective cover is included in the box that prevents many smudges to affect the aesthetic of the phone. Unlike many smartphones with noticeable camera bumps, the Infinix GT 10 Pro 5G maintains a flush profile, allowing it to sit flat on surfaces without wobbling.

The 120Hz refresh rate ensures smooth scrolling and gaming, with the flexibility to switch between 120Hz/90Hz/60Hz and auto mode. The slim bezels enhance content streaming and gaming, providing an uninterrupted experience.
For gamers, the display is excellent, but for content enthusiasts, it might be a tad strenuous on the eyes. The color styler settings offer a choice between Bright or Original.

The AMOLED display, Dimensity 8050 chipset, and solid battery backup make it appealing. Despite a subpar camera setup and a commitment to only one Android update, the Infinix GT 10 Pro 5G promises a satisfying user experience for at least two years.
