Reviews for the Vivo iQOO 7 Legend
Source: Android Headlines
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.

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.

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’.

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.

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. The device is well-geared for gamers, though the battery is a bit let down. The camera performance is also good in this price range, which is another added advantage.

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.

Qualcomm claims that it is 35% faster than the Adreno 650 in the Snapdragon 865 SoC and offers a 20% better power efficiency.For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2021.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for smartphones.
