funcs = {f1, f2, f3, f4};
args = {x1, x2, x3, x4};

The following forms are only marginally, if at all, better than you have.

MapThread[#1[#2] &, {funcs, args}]
{f1[x1], f2[x2], f3[x3], f4[x4]}

Inner[#1[#2] &, funcs, args, List]
{f1[x1], f2[x2], f3[x3], f4[x4]}

But, if you have to do a lot of it you could define your own function to
shorten it.

tt[funcs_, args_] := Inner[#1[#2] &, funcs, args, List]

{f1[x1], f2[x2], f3[x3], f4[x4]}
