Reviews for the Vivo iQOO 9T 5G

80% iQOO 9T review: A true OnePlus 10T competitor?
Source: India Today English
iQOO 9T is the phone you should get if you want an all-rounder device that can handle everything you throw at it with ease. And regardless of saying, it gives a tough fight to the OnePlus 10T, which is also one of the best you'll find in this price range. So, it's going to be tough to choose these two devices. Overall, as far as the iQOO phone is concerned, be it performance, battery, or camera, not even once the iQOO 9T performs poorly. I have no complaints at all about these aspects. However, if you don’t fancy giant phones, the iQOO 9T may not be the right fit for you. This one is quite heavy and features a giant-sized display, which, I must mention, offers top-notch performance. So, whether you are a gamer, a multitasker or a photographer or consume multimedia content a lot, spending on this one makes complete sense, of course, if you have that much money to splurge. Now, if you have budget constraints, the brand offers a lot more good options at a pocket-friendly price.

The iQOO 9T is a killer phone that you probably can't buy
Source: Zdnet.com English
The iQOO 9T is nearly equivalent to the OnePlus 10T, in terms of specs and pricing, with the iQOO 9T being slightly wider and taller. The 9T may have slightly better cameras and feels a bit more premium thanks to the metal frame. While I haven't been connected to all of the available 5G networks, I did use the phone with a T-Mobile SIM that had LTE coverage. The large-capacity battery performed well, easily lasting through more than a day of heavy usage. I don't game much on my phones, but I did load up and play some racing games to check out the iQOO 9T's performance. It was a blast to smoothly cruise around courses without lag or the phone heating up. The iQOO 9T is a solid flagship phone with an upper midrange price. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the photos and could use this phone as my daily driver.

70% iQoo 9T review: Come for the performance, stay for the cameras
Source: Gadgets Now English
Starting at Rs 49,999, the iQoo 9T gets a lot of things right; it is a solid performer, and has a trio of cameras that deliver on most counts, it charges quickly while lasting long enough, making it one of the best smartphones under Rs 50,000. The one thing that stops us from giving it the title of the best phone in its class is the bloaty and poor software experience. Having said that, the iQoo 9T might not be the “best phone,” but it is surely a justifiable purchase for the money it is asking. So, if you are out there looking for a phone that can game well while also being your pocket camera, the iQoo 9T is the one for you.

80% Vivo iQoo 9T review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The iQoo 9T does a lot right, with a great screen, dependable battery life and blazing performance it mostly manages to stand out in the right ways from the competition. But for poor thermals, some finish issues and ads in the notifications this would have been an instant recommendation.

80% iQOO 9T Review: Very Close To Being A Flagship Killer
Source: Android Headlines English
I am happy with the changes on the iQOO 9T in contrast to the iQOO 9 Pro. The iQOO 9T packs stellar performance, excellent battery life, fluid software, a great display, and reasonably capable cameras. For $625 you are getting a flagship-level experience. Sure you give up official IP rating and wireless charging along with a slightly lower quality design/ergonomics experience. Then there is the case for limited availability and no guarantee about future software updates. However, if you are in geographic regions where this device is available, the iQOO 9T is a great choice.

iQOO 9T 5G Review – T For Terrific Performance
Source: Cashify English
The iQOO 9T 5G has been officially launched in India. Of course, performance-driven mobile gaming purists will be impressed. It is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, which has been tuned to deliver some insane benchmark scores. In addition, you get a cutting-edge vapour chamber cooling system and some frame upscaling magic from the V1+ chip. The phone arrives at an under 50k price tag and offers a lot for that price. It looks amazing and performs even better. So, is it the fastest phone under 50k like the company claims? Let’s find out in this iQOO 9T 5G review.

90% iQOO 9T review: The new under-Rs 50,000 champ
Source: The Indian Express English
With no corners cut in its design and build quality, powerful internals and capable cameras, it is hard to believe the iQOO 9T is a value-flagship and not a full-fledged one. While the performance of the phone is more-or-less on par with other Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 devices, the 9T has an edge over phones like the OnePlus 10T thanks to a well-rounded camera setup and a sturdier, more premium metal frame design, not to mention its spectacular looks. This is arguably the best phone under Rs 50,000 right now for gamers and power users.

80% iQOO 9T Review: Performs like a CHAMP but not “fun” enough
Source: The Times of India English
The iQOO 9T sticks to the same tried-and-tested formula -- all the latest specifications at a fairly reasonable price. For the average consumer, that is not a bad thing, especially considering the performance on offer. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is worthy of being called a proper flagship chip now and you can extract all of its performance on the iQOO 9T. This chip is going to make Android flagships more practical to use. The rest of the iQOO 9T is decent but nothing extraordinary. The battery life and fast charging are the other highlights whereas the cameras are decent. Build quality is great and I assume most of you will find the design tasteful instead of childish (like on the iQOO 9 Pro). My only gripe here is the FunTouch OS 12 experience that simply takes away all the pleasure of using this phone. No 3rd-party launcher can hide the ungainly interface this Android skin wears. Hence, if you seek top-notch performance in your phone at a price of just around Rs. 50,000, the iQOO 9T is an easy recommendation.

80% iQOO 9T 5G review: an enticing Android with a turbocharged Snapdragon at the helm
Source: 91mobiles English
The iQOO 9T is currently the fastest phone as far as benchmarks go, dethroning the Vivo X80 and its Dimensity 9000 SoC. It also appears that some of the thermal throttling issues that plagued 8 Gen 1 devices have seemingly been resolved with the 8+ Gen 1 chipset. That being said, the device still has its work cut out as far as low-light photography goes and the smartphone’s software is still laden with bloatware. Even so, the phone’s daylight shots are more than satisfactory, as is the viewing experience on the phone’s E5 AMOLED panel. Suffice it to say, the iQOO 9T is the perfect device for spec-heads and the device will not leave you wanting for more in the performance department.

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

SD 8+ Gen 1: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2021 and manufactured in 4 nm at TSMC.

Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 3,200 MHz. 5G is now included in the chip with the Snapdragon X65 modem.
