Reviews for the Vivo iQOO Z9

80% iQoo Z9 Review: A Reliable Mid-Range Phone With Decent Cameras
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
If you're looking for an affordable mid-range smartphone with good performance and decent photo quality, the iQoo Z9 is a good option to consider at this price point. It offers reliable battery life and has a bright AMOLED screen, while the processor definitely punches above its weight and makes up for the less-than-ideal UFS 2.2 storage. However, the handset faces tough competition from smartphones like last year's Samsung Galaxy M34 — while this handset's Exynos 1280 processor is slower than the one on the iQoo Z9, it boasts better camera quality and a (subjectively) better software experience, with a longer software support window. Similarly, the Realme 12+ 5G has an additional ultra-wide-angle camera and supports faster charging at 67W.

75% iQOO Z9 5G review: the best-performing phone under Rs 20,000
Source: 91mobiles English
Thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset, the iQOO Z9 5G is the fastest phone in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment as of March 2024. The phone performs smoothly during day-to-day usage and can run games without much lag as well. Additionally, the iQOO Z9 has a bright and attractive display, and good battery life combined with fast charging support. While the iQOO Z9 5G gets a dependable 50MP main camera, it could have benefitted from an ultra-wide sensor. Also, the phone is only likely to get two major software updates, which is a bummer considering some of the rivals in this segment like the Realme Narzo 70 Pro will get at least three major updates.

75% iQOO Z9 5G review: All-rounder experience under Rs 20,000
Source: India Today English
The iQOO Z9 5G is priced at Rs 19,999 in India and consumers can consider buying it if they are looking for an all-rounder experience. The performance is good for the price and you also get a punchy screen with support for dual stereo speakers, making the content-consuming experience enjoyable. The battery life is solid with light usage, and camera performance is decent as well, although it lacks an ultra-wide camera. Also, if you don't mind the bloatware (you can uninstall most of the third-party apps), then the iQOO Z9 is a good choice for you under Rs 20,000.

80% iQOO Z9 review: An affordable smartphone with solid basics
Source: The Indian Express English
The iQOO Z9 might not look like much at first but it’s still got everything a modern smartphone user might want. Including the bank discount, the iQOO Z9 is available for Rs 17,999, which is almost Rs 4,000 cheaper than the similarly specced Nothing Phone (2a), which makes the iQOO Z9 a value-for-money smartphone.

75% iQOO Z9 Review: A surprisingly good all-rounder
Source: Think Digit English
iQOO has turned up the throttle this year. A company once only focused on performance has now come out with one of the best all-rounders in the sub-₹20,000 smartphone segment. The iQOO Z9 is a jack of all trades – it has the BEST performance under ₹20K, a fantastic primary camera that does extremely well in most conditions, and a gorgeous AMOLED display. The battery life is also pretty decent; it should easily last most users a full day. The only two areas where iQOO could step up more are design and UI. iQOO smartphones prioritise power above all – that’s the iQOO DNA we have become familiar with over the years. However, in the cutthroat smartphone market of 2024, that’s simply not enough. A focus on camera quality, battery life, and display is nearly essential. To that end, iQOO has taken it upon themselves to offer more holistic options across various budgets.

Vivo iQOO Z9 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English Archive.org version
The Vivo iQOO Z9 has provided what other smartphones have been failing to do in the $200 price range. This price point used to be highly competitive but has since been bland. There hasn’t been any meaningful competition in this segment and that’s exactly what this smartphone wants to change. It certainly has the hardware and features to do so. Let’s take the design for example. It features a modern flat design with expressive patterns that many would love. The display is also fantastic with mostly uniform bezels and helps elevate the status of the smartphone. The chipset on the smartphone is quite fast and has the raw performance needed to be a champ in this segment. The camera is also quite capable and so is the battery. It’s not that there aren’t many smartphones with similarly capable specs and features.

ARM Mali-G610 MP4: Mid-Range GPU with 4 cores and based on the second generation of the Valhall architecture.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

6.67":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

77%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
