The Review on iQoo Z3 smartphone

Vivo’s sub-brand iQoo is no stranger to 5G. It has launched four smartphones in India so far and all of them (including the Z3) support 5G. Since networks in India are not yet operational, it makes sense that smartphone makers don’t rely solely on fast data as a selling point. In fact, every manufacturer is offering a smartphone priced between Rs. 17,000 and Rs. 22,000 have managed to put a little more on the table. Xiaomi offers a 108-megapixel camera on its Mi 10i (Review), Realme’s X7 5G (Review) you get dual 5G standby and a 120Hz Super AMOLED display, and the list goes on.

This is iQoo’s first affordable smartphone for the Indian market, it has gone with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G processor, which should remain exclusive for a while. In a smartphone segment packed with devices from many manufacturers, has iQoo done enough to draw attention to its latest offering?

iQoo Z3 design

I have received a Cyber ​​Blue unit of the iQoo Z3 for review. The frame and back panel of the smartphone are made of plastic. The matte back panel feels smooth and is good at no picking niet up fingerprints, but allows dust up easy. The Cyber ​​Blue finish has a rainbow-like multi-colored pearlescent finish that looks different from different angles. Those looking for something a little more subtle should go for the Ace Black finish, which features a gray and black gradient.

The phone seems quite slim and fits comfortably in the hand, as it is given features a 6.5-inch screen. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom, along with the single speaker, primary microphone and Type-C USB port. The fingerprint reader is built into the power supply button, which sits on the right, along with the volume rocker positioned above it. The fingerprint reader is easy to reach and unlocks the device instantly. iQoo Z3 Specifications and Software

The iQoo Z3 is the first smartphone in India to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G mobile platform. Like many smartphones in this segment, the iQoo Z3 supports two 5G bands (n77, n78), but does not offer dual 5G standby. The Snapdragon 768G is a slightly updated version of the 765G that reached several mid-range smartphones in 2020, such as the Vivo V20 Pro (Review) and the OnePlus Nord (Review). So iQoo offers it in a sub-Rs. 20,000 smartphone is indeed interesting.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G features an octa-core setup with a 2.8GHz Kryo 475 Gold core, another 2.4GHz Kryo 475 Gold core, and six 1.8GHz Kryo 475 Silver cores. Compared to the Snapdragon 750G processor used in many other smartphones at this price point, the 768G offers higher CPU and GPU clock speeds and is built on a 7nm manufacturing process (instead of 8nm).

iQoo has launched the Z3 in India in three configurations. There is a 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, an 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option and an 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant. They all support up to a 1TB microSD card for expansion using the hybrid SIM slot.

The iQoo Z3 uses Vivo’s FunTouch OS. Currently at version 11.1, it is based on Android 11 and my device was running the May 2021 Android security update. At the time of writing this review, iQoo has yet to announce a move to Vivo’s next-gen Origin OS, which is already available on its Chinese variant. phone.

FunTouch OS is very similar in appearance to stock Android, but offers several customizations that most other Android skins don’t usually have. You can customize the animations for the unlock screen, face recognition, charging, USB connection and even placing the phone put on standby and wake up. On the other hand, there is no way to customize the icon shape like on Oppo’s ColorOS or Realme’s Realme UI-powered smartphones. There are also several iQoo apps (including Notes, Video, EasyShare etc) and iQoo has kept its own dialer and texting apps on the Z3. Bloatware is limited to just three apps — Snapchat, Dailyhunt, and Moj — and they can all be uninstalled if they’re not needed. iQoo Z3 performance and battery life

The 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD screen on the iQoo Z3 features a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch sampling rate of 180 Hz, which is useful when playing games. It uses reinforced Panda glass, which choose up fingerprints easily, and these are also quite difficult to wipe off. The screen becomes sufficiently bright in sunlight. Colors appear a bit saturated, but text and images look sharp. The 120Hz refresh rate made the software feel quite fluid in daily use. iQoo claims that the display is HDR10 certified. I was able to stream HDR content on the YouTube app, but Netflix didn’t support it.

Overall performance was top notch with no hitches or lags. The new Snapdragon 768G SoC showed a noticeable increase in scores in our benchmarking tests. The iQoo Z3 scored 4,45,029 in AnTuTu, as well as 710 and 1,985 in Geekbench 5’s single- and multi-core tests. The processor definitely outperformed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G in the OnePlus Nord CE 5G (Review), which achieved scores of 3,91,813 in AnTuTu, along with 639 and 1830 in Geekbench 5’s single- and multi-core tests.

The Snapdragon 765G was a good processor for mid-level gaming and the 768G also offers good graphics performance. The iQoo Z3 performed well when playing Call of Duty: Mobile at the default settings for High Graphics and High Frame Rate, run smoothly and show no signs of overheating. The phone started to warm up up after switching the graphics and framerate to Very High (with anti-aliasing on), but in-game performance was preserved. Asphalt 9 Legends also ran impressively at high quality with no stuttering or lag.

The single speaker on the bottom gets quite loud, but sounds tinny. It’s good enough for gaming, but not so much for watching movies or listening to music. At least iQoo gave this phone a 3.5mm headphone jack for those who want better sound quality.

The 4,400 mAh battery charges up quite fast, going from no power to 67 percent in 30 minutes and charging in 60 minutes. As for battery life, the phone achieved an impressive score of 19 hours and 32 minutes in our HD video run test. With an hour of gaming, some photos, phone calls and constantly checking social media apps, the phone managed 30-40 percent battery life most days at night, which is pretty good. iQoo Z3-camera’s

The iQoo Z3 features a triple back camera setup with a 64-megapixel f/1.79 primary camera, an 8-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide angle camera, and a 2 megapixel f/2.4 macro camera. the selfie camera features a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture. The camera interface is what you would find on most iQoo and Vivo smartphones. The default visible camera modes can be swapped for what you will use often.

When shooting in daylight, the photos came out a bit saturated with a decent amount of detail in the textures. Noise was controlled and the shadows had great detail, but there were noticeable purple fringes in the brighter parts of scenes. The ultra wide angle camera took decent photos but was unable to capture much detail. There were also a lot of purple fringing when shooting in bright settings. The 2X digital zoom mode produced surprisingly shots with a good amount of detail. Photos in portrait mode had a little more saturation and good edge detection.

Photos taken in low light had noise under control, but shadow detail was poor, especially in scenes with some form of lighting nearby. Night mode managed to brighten up scenes and control the highlights.

The 2-megapixel macro camera captured strange looking color tones so I preferred to crop photos taken with the primary camera instead.
