Reviews for the Vivo iQOO 9
Source: GSM Arena
The iQOO 9 is an excellent all-rounder with many great treats that should give it an edge over any competitor - gimbal OIS, a zoom camera, the pressure-sensitive Monster Touch layer, and the 120W fast charging, to name a few. We also found its screen and performance to be of a flagship origin, and the iQOO 9 surprised us with excellent photo and video quality. Even better, the iQOO 9 demonstrated some excellent battery life, a stable Funtouch launcher, and it can be a very good gaming smartphone. We also got a promise for two major Android updates and three years of security patches. The iQOO 9 has its shortcomings, though. It is not a water-resistant device, and the speaker quality is hardly impressive. But there is something of a bigger concern - the overheating. We all know that the Snapdragon 888+ generates a lot of heat under pressure, and there is no passive cooling that can handle it for hours. That's why Asus and ZTE are using actual fans for that. It's fine. But having no thermal control and throttling and relying instead on the overheating failsafe is not healthy for the phones or the users.

iQOO 9 has a powerful set of hardware, including a Snapdragon 888+ processor with 12 GB of RAM and an additional 4 GB of extended RAM, which delivers flagship-level performance. It also features a vivid and crisp 10-bit Super AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. Fast charging is a significant feature of the iQOO 9 5G, with a whopping 120W FlashCharge fast charging. IQOO is moving in the right way, however, they need to improve their camera performance. Additionally, there is no IP rating for the phone, meaning it won’t survive in water. Despite its flaws, the iQOO 9 is still a good smartphone with a stylish design, solid specs, and a lovely display. The IQOO 9 5G is a good choice if you really want a powerful gaming smartphone and don’t mind the decent camera performance.

The Vivo iQOO 9 smartphone is available globally and game enthusiasts must try their hands on this smartphone as its main highlights are gaming & performance. But what is more interesting is that you will receive decent camera software support too with this phone. Furthermore, two years of Android updates and three-year security updates. So, there’s nothing to worry about the software updates and enjoy the latest versions without any hassle. Although there are a few cons like no IP rating, low-video recording quality, and many more.
