As for cooling, the iQOO uses a multi-layer heat dissipation structure consisting of a 10,000-degree thermal conductivity heat pipe, a curable thermally conductive gel, a high thermal conductivity aluminum alloy frame, and a multi-layer composite graphite heat-dissipating film to achieve better temperature rise control. The iQOO comes standard with a 4,000 mAh large-capacity battery.

The Iqoo 3 offers impressive speed and performance along with an excellent battery life.

80% iQOO 3 review: Do you really need a 5G phone right now?
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% iQoo Z3 review: A Powerful Smartphone at the Right Price
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
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.

iQOO is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Indian smartphone market. The company hit the ball out of the ballpark with the iQOO 7 and the iQOO 7 Legend and now, has launched a compelling device to appease budget-conscious buyers too. To that note, the iQOO Z3 offers excellent performance for its starting price of just Rs 19,990, and the smartphone’s cameras can click quality images as well. What’s more, the device can charge rapidly at 55W, and power users will also benefit from the phone’s 120Hz display immensely. Of course, iQOO had to cut some corners to bring the price of the phone down and the device’s plastic chassis and LCD screen might raise some eyebrows. 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.

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!

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.
