Source: The Indian Express English
iQOO 3 does seem like a power-packed device with impressive specifications but do you really need a 5G device right now, especially if it will set you back by almost Rs 45,000? How future-ready do you really need to be? Frankly, if you are someone who updates phones every two years, a 5G device doesn’t make sense today given the networks won’t be in place so soon. The 4G variant, which starts at Rs 36,990, I feel is better value-for-money since it comes with the same specifications.

One thing I’d like to immediately get out of the way is that the 5G version is simply not worth spending money on. Sure, your phone will be future-proof, but for how long? It’ll likely be several years before we see 5G in India, and by that time, you’ll have moved on to a newer phone. And that 12 GB RAM? You really don’t need that either. If you are going for this phone, get the 4G, 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant that retails at Rs 39,990.

A bump-up in memory to 8GB/265GB will set you back INR39,990 ($555/€512) and the top-tier iQOO 3 5G, with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, retails for INR44,990 ($625/€575).

80% Vivo iQoo 7 5G review
Source: Tech Advisor English
There’s a lot to like about the iQoo 7 5G. Firstly, it’s an attractive device that’s nice to use. The 120Hz display is lush and smooth, while the Funtouch OS does take a little sorting out at first, but then delivers a decent Android experience. Plus the long battery life is a true bonus. The cameras are very usable, with the night mode, in particular, impressing me during the test. There are a few niggles here and there, such as the glitches in the Notification area and problems setting up Google Pay in the UK, but for the most part the iQoo 7 5G is a solid contender in the mid-range space.

Vivo iQOO 7 Legend Audio review: A mixed performance
Source: DxOMark English
Because of very noticeable artifacts (both spectral and temporal), elevated background noise, and inconsistent tonal balance, the iQOO 7 Legend is less than ideal to use as a recording device, especially in high SPL scenarios. As a speaker, Vivo’s latest flagship performs somewhat better, thanks to adequate treble presence, overall decent dynamics and spatial attributes, very good volume qualities, and an appreciable ability for keeping sonic artifacts to a minimum. That said, timbre inconsistencies and a mixed performance still keep the iQOO 7 Legend quite a ways down the table from top-scoring devices like the Black Shark 4 Pro.

Source: Gadgets Now English
The iQOO Z3 has a lightweight build, cool looks and a fast and smooth UI. The battery life is good, which can go for two days if you are a light-to-medium user. While the daytime camera snaps come out natural and detailed, the night shots need some improvement; photos taken in dimly-lit environments do not come out to be sharp. Gaming-wise, this phone can perform well with heavy-duty mobile titles like Call of Duty: Mobile. Overall, this is a capable smartphone from iQOO which came close to being a well-balanced product. If you are looking to go a bit different with your next smartphone, while keeping a budget under Rs 25k, the iQOO Z3 is a capable device.

Source: GSM Arena English
Despite its aggressive pricing, the iQOO Z3 5G has some tough competition to face. We've got the considerably cheaper Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro and the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro - both very capable and powerful midrangers. However, they are also both missing the 5G modem, which the iQOO Z3 uses as a staple. So if you are after some future-proofing and want to be one of the first to benefit from the developing 5G network, the Z3 seems like a nice bargain as a whole package. But if you are looking for your best bang for the buck, you should probably look for it elsewhere.

With its powerful performance, effective thermal solution, 5G support, and decent cameras, the phone manages to stand out against the likes of POCO X3 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. Yet, iQOO’s unnerving decision to settle for an LCD panel, teardrop notch, and a mono speaker might be a deal-breaker to many.

With the Z3, iQoo now has a solid contender at the higher end of the budget smartphone segment. Its main hardware feature, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G processor, offers better performance than the competition, but it's not a giant leap. There's also a vibrant 120Hz refresh rate display and best-in-class charging with a 55W adapter in the box. Despite its plastic frame and back, the phone still looks quite good in its Cyber Blue finish, and is also somewhat future-ready because it supports 5G. The only downside is its average low-light camera performance. The iQoo Z3 offers incredible value for the hardware that it offers, priced starting at Rs. 19,999. Its closest competitor is the Realme X7 5G (Review) which offers 50W charging along with dual 5G standby on both SIMs.

All in all, iQOO Z3 5G can perform the daily smartphone functions well for a wide range of users. Yet, certain bells and whistles are missing in several aspects of its use that come to notice. For instance, the device misses out on a dual audio setup. This, along with not the best display in the market, makes for a less than optimum media experience on the smartphone. The iQOO Z3 5G camera, though capable in favourable conditions, leaves you wanting more out of it. An ideal scenario for the device is then restricted to regular smartphone use that involves staying connected on calls or messages, scrolling through your social media, occasional gaming sessions and photography. Double down on any of these for a specific use case, and there is a chance that you will be left disappointed.

What’s more, the device can charge rapidly at 55W, and power users will also benefit from the phone’s 120Hz display immensely.

So, if you don’t game too much on your phone or care about future-proofing your device for the 5G revolution, then you’d be better off with handsets like the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.

With that said, it will compete with smartphones such as the upcoming OnePlus Nord CE, the Xiaomi Mi 10i (Review), and the Realme X7 5G (Review). We have yet to complete our detailed review of this smartphone, which will give you a better idea about the performance gains that the Snapdragon 768G processor brings. So, stay tuned for our full review, coming soon on Gadgets 360.

From the experience point of view, iQOO Z3 is a very competitive product, such as the decentralization of flagship features such as Hawkeye 2.0, 4D game vibration, and game companion, which makes the gaming experience of this thousand yuan machine rich and full. For example, fast charging and temperature control during games also have impressive performances for players.

80% iQOO Legend 7 Review: Unique looks and great hardware for under $550
Source: Android Headlines English
Top-end specs, unique looks, and reasonable pricing make the iQOO Legend 7 a legitimate flagship contender. There are a few downsides such as lack of official IP rating and wireless charging. Also, the software lacks polish and updates are few and not timely. But for the price of INR 39,990 or USD 540 you get absolutely top-shelf hardware including fairly decent main camera performance. For people in Asia, the main market for iQOO, I think the iQOO 7 series should be at the top of their shopping list.

Remove that distinctive BMW M branding, and the iQOO 7 Legend looks and sounds like a typical high-end smartphone advertised for mobile gamers. Context, however, is where the phone wins in a market already saturated with phones bearing nearly similar specs. With high-end hardware and a camera set that’s unusual for its kind, the Vivo iQOO 7 Legend rises above other gaming smartphones in the market. And at 39,990 INR ($550) for the base 8GB RAM, 128GB storage model (43,990 INR or $605 for the 12GB/256GB configuration), it definitely makes for a tempting high-end gaming phone in markets where it is available.

iQOO 7 Legend review: An all-rounder disguised as gaming-centric smartphone
Source: Business Standard English
The iQOO 7 Legend is an all-rounder disguised as a gaming smartphone. Priced Rs 39,990 onwards, it is an inexpensive smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC. The phone delivers comprehensive user experience and does not seem to be lacking on any front. That said, it is a capable smartphone for everyday use and for gaming.

Source: Gadgets Now English
At Rs 39,990, the iQoo 7 Legend offers a premium experience — something that you expect of a flagship smartphone. The design is unique and quite striking, the display is a delight and overall performance is impressive. The camera performance could’ve been better but if you want a gaming phone that looks like a premium device, this is the phone to go for. What works against the phone is that it faces tough competition with solid offerings from OnePlus and Xiaomi in the same space. The smartphone does manage to hold its own against competition and could be your next phone if you are looking for something ‘different’.

90% iQoo 7 Legend Review: Almost an All-Rounder
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Given its hardware specifications and competitive price tag, the iQoo 7 Legend is quite hard to ignore in the premium smartphone segment. The only other smartphone that comes close in terms of raw power is Xiaomi's Mi 11X Pro (Review). While the Mi 11X Pro has a 108-megapixel primary camera, it does not offer OIS, and charging is a bit slower at 33W. The OnePlus 9R (Review) is also a good alternative. It may feature a slightly underpowered Snapdragon 870 processor, but is a good combination of performance and features in a package that is just 8.4mm thick. The iQoo 7 Legend offers the Snapdragon 888 processor, a good 120Hz refresh rate OLED display and excellent build quality, plus cameras that perform quite well. It might fall short in terms of battery life, if you are a power user, but although the battery is relatively small, it sure charges quickly!

The Vivo iQOO 7 Legend lands just below the half-way mark in our Display database, as it struggles a bit with brightness in both our readability and video testing. That said, it has good overall color management, and it has smooth and reactive touch, which makes it a good device for gaming.

vivo iQOO 7 Legend hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
It seems to us that the iQOO 7 Legend isn't just a gaming phone. Its main appeal is that it's a great all-rounder for its price. The design can be more universally accepted compared to traditional gaming aesthetics but doesn't skip some high-end features such as bright, HRR display, Snapdragon 888 chipset, a full set of cameras and pressure-sensitive areas он the screen that elevate the gaming experience. You can even argue that the iQOO 7 Legend is a good choice outside of the gamers' prospect. It's one of the few handsets to offer high-res telephoto and ultrawide cameras, OIS on its main, and it's also fairly compact compared to other similarly-priced alternatives.

iQOO 7 Legend is a well-balanced smartphone for daily use and is a supremely powerful gaming smartphone packed with features that help you stand out in games like COD: Mobile. The cameras perform surprisingly well and can take some bright pictures with natural colours. Even though it starts at Rs 39,999, it offers a premium metal-glass build, with a subtle matte finish. The fast-charging support is a great feature to have since it completely chargers the phone in under half an hour.

If you are looking for a performance-oriented phone under Rs 40,000 segment, then the iQOO 7 Legend is a good bet. iQOO has gone for Qualcomm’s top-notch Snapdragon 888 to offer users better processing power and smooth performance.

After a brief hiatus, Vivo’s sub-brand iQOO is back in the running with two compelling devices dubbed the iQOO 7 and the iQOO 7 Legend. I recently reviewed the former and to cut a long story short, was supremely impressed with the hardware on offer. That said, with the iQOO 7 Legend, the company is going the extra mile and have not only equipped the phone with top-notch internals, but the brand has also partnered with motor racing giant BMW to capture the essence of a fast and speedy Android phone. So, is the iQOO 7 Legend worth your bucks? Well, let’s find out in this review. The iQOO 7 Legend packs incredible performance, capable cameras and stupendously fast wired charging in a handsome package. Rest assured, the handset offers the most complete smartphone experience under Rs 40K.

It is clear that the iQOO 7 Legend is a strong contender in the Rs 30,000 to Rs 40,000 price range. It is a cut above the rest of the smartphones in many aspects while falling short on a few others. As to summarise the experience, the iQOO 7 Legend is like a familiar Vivo phone in a more refined and powerful format than ever before. Keeping all this in mind, should you spend your money on the iQOO 7 Legend? We would say that with a shot at the top specifications available in the smartphone industry as of now, wrapped up in a case that is outrightly the most distinctive in its budget, you should go for the iQOO 7 Legend if you wish to stand out from the crowd of OnePlus, Vivo and Xiaomi.

Vivo iQOO 8 and iQOO 8 Pro smartphones follow their legacy and bring interesting features to their users. They have one of the best camera technologies on the market today, which will increase the number of photos and videos in multiple folds. At the same time, the screen, battery, and UI sections are noteworthy as they also have excellent features. Overall, if you’re looking for a low-end flagship phone, the iQOO 8 is a good choice as it has the beauty of camera technology and has the power of a gaming phone. But if you want to make it all out, the iQOO 8 Pro is the best overall recommendation in the mainline; whether it’s about gaming performance or photography, you won’t disappoint. If you are looking for an alternative and want a little wilder go for the OnePlus 9 Pro which can give this phone fierce competition.

iQOO Z5 review: Brings some upgrades but a missed opportunity overall
Source: Business Standard English
The iQoo Z5 is available in two variants -- 8GB RAM and 128GB storage option is priced at Rs 23,990. And the 12GB RAM and 256GB storage variant is priced at Rs 26,990. Looking at the price, I was expecting something more from the device, the kind of value its predecessor iQoo Z3 provided. There are meaningful upgrades in iQoo Z5 but the price tag seems too heavy for this phone as its gaming credentials may not help the device survive in a competitive market.

80% iQoo Z5 Review: A Decent Step Up, but Not a Big Leap
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
While the iQoo Z3 with its sub-Rs. 20,000 starting price seemed to offer good enough value for money, the same cannot be said about the Z5, because its base price is Rs. 23,990 in India. The iQoo Z5 does offer some improvements over the iQoo Z3 (Review), namely stereo speakers, a bigger battery, and a newer processor, but that isn't enough to take on other popular phones that cost around Rs. 25,000. iQoo does officially plan to pull the plug on the Z3, but it's still on sale at as little as Rs. 17,990 (6GB RAM + 128GB storage) online for now. The Z5 in comparison, is not a big enough step up in terms of overall performance and does not offer enough value. There are better smartphones available from the competition at similar prices. From a hardware standpoint you do get the powerful Snapdragon 778G SoC, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but the competition includes the Realme GT Master Edition (Review) which offers similar specifications with a much better Super AMOLED display, good camera performance, and 65W fast charging, for Rs. 25,999.

81% iQOO Z5 Review: No OLED, No Party
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
Wrapping up this review, the iQOO Z5 is a decent mid-range phone with snappy performance. But the fact that it still hosts an IPS display is kind of a major letdown, especially considering how other brands are offering a superior AMOLED screen at a similar price range. And compared to the competition, its cameras aren’t exactly on par either. So, instead of driving up costs with advertisements on IPL, iQOO, a brand that launched the iQOO 7, which is still the best phone under INR 35,000 in India, could’ve definitely done a better job by bringing more competitive phones. As of now, I’m sorry to say that the iQOO Z5 simply doesn’t strike the right note. I would rather recommend you the Galaxy M52 or the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE or the Mi 11X that are currently on sale at under INR 25,000 on Flipkart.

If you’re looking for a value proposition that is more focused on speed and performance along with a relatively clean UI, the iQOO Z5 is a worthy consideration, even though it comes with a few cons. It is also a big improvement over the iQOO Z3. Among the Snapdragon 778G phones we have right now, it strikes a good balance between key elements like price, software, performance, design and camera quality. For gamers on a tight budget and power users, the iQOO Z5 is a good deal at Rs 23,990, but an even better one if you can grab the discount coupon and bank offers during the festive sales.

The iQOO Z5 starts at Rs 23,990, and for the price, is a worthy option as it performs well and offers a good-looking, robust design. What’s more, the handset charges reasonably quickly too, offers loud stereo speakers and snappy biometrics. Of course, those looking for the best gaming phone will find it hard to turn a blind eye to the POCO X3 Pro. Moreover, folks who enjoy watching movies on their phones will be better off with the Realme GT ME (review), which costs more, albeit ships with an AMOLED display. Lest I forget, the Xiaomi Mi 10i (review) is still the best camera phone under Rs 25K. Clearly, the iQOO Z5 has a lot of competition, but I still feel confident in recommending the phone as it offers a well-rounded package that will suit most buyers. Do let me know which phone you would pick if you had a budget of Rs 25K in the comments below and as always, stay tuned to our blog for more tech coverage.

While the price may seem cheap, it’s a beast with advanced specs. The iQOO Z5 is really a big competitor in the lower mid-range category. It excels in several areas that attract many users. If you’re looking for the best design with built-in performance, this model could be an incredible choice. As you can see, there’s a great display, powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, amazing camera, even the battery capacity is admirable. So what else do you need for your gaming purpose? This model really stands out for its spectacular features. Vivo did a great job of offering a great series. Whether you’ve used it or not, you can always try the Vivo phone. If you’re looking for alternatives options then definitely check the Xiaomi Poco X3 GT smartphone, on a similar budget.

Source: India Today English
iQOO Z5 is a very potent smartphone in all regards, especially for its price tag of just under Rs 25,000. It delivers a well-rounded performance with a very good display and smooth, lag-free operation that can easily last you more than a day's use on a single charge. The camera is decent for a limited scope of photography, but in case you want this to be your specific use case, you can probably skip this smartphone. What also might bother you is a slightly lacklustre operating system on the device. Though if you get used to it, it turns out to be quite handy with all its features. Other than this, the iQOO Z5 is all aces in our books, and anyone thinking of buying a smartphone in its price range should definitely consider it as a very good option.

Gaming is another reason you’d buy the iQOO Z5 and it certainly impresses in this regard too. Call of Duty: Mobile runs best on Medium graphics at High frame rates. Casual titles like Shadow Fight 4: Arena and F1 Clash can run at the highest settings with ease. The phone heats up around the cameras but the plastic body keeps it comfy and the thermals don't affect performance. The Game Space tool is simply a launcher with fancy graphics; no tools to block notifications or alter other settings.

After the evaluation, what surprised the author is that although the iQOO Z5 is a thousand yuan machine, its game performance and image capabilities are entirely in the first echelon among the thousand yuan machine. Snapdragon 778G + full-blood version of LPDDR5 memory + full-blood version of UFS 3.1 flash memory, forming a stable performance iron triangle. Although the SoC is not the flagship Snapdragon 8 series, it can also bring low power consumption and excellent performance, which can fully meet the needs of daily use and gaming.

Without a doubt, Vivo is offering a cost-effective smartphone under the name Vivo iQOO Z5x. Tall IPS LCD screen, latest Android OS supported by custom UI ensure its high-level performance and user experience. The dual camera with gyro-EIS support for the 4K video recording feature along the 6nm Dimensity 900 chipset is all praiseworthy. Overall, the iQOO is the best 5g smartphone in this price range for multitasking and next-gen gaming. However, this smartphone doesn’t support Gorilla glass protection, NFC, wireless charging, and reverse charging. However, if you are looking for a mid-range phone with decent performance the iQOO Z5x phone is definitely a good choice. For alternative options, you can definitely take a look at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 smartphone.
