iQoo is the latest smartphone brand to enter the Indian market. While most companies are entering the new market with the intention of first capturing the budget segment, iQoo has come up with a different plan in India. The company made its debut in India with iQoo 3, which is a premium smartphone and comes with powerful hardware. For example, the Aiku 3 includes Qualcomm’s most powerful processor, the Snapdragon 865. Not only that, the best iQoo 3 model comes with support for 5G connectivity. However, this is only good for the show at the moment, as the 5G network is not available in India at the moment. The starting price of the smartphone is 36 990 Rs and if you look at the specifications of the iQoo 3 on paper, then this price does not seem much. Do you have to invest your money for this new player? We examine the device to find out.

iQoo 3 design

When we first saw the iQoo 3, we were quite happy with its design. Weighing 214.5 grams, it definitely feels heavy, but at the same time first class. It has a 6.44-inch AMOLED display. There is a small cutout for holes for the selfie camera. There are very thin frames around the display.

The handset is mounted on the frame of the iQoo 3, which is difficult to locate at a glance. The phone includes a metal frame, which gives the device a first-class look. The power and volume buttons are on the right side of the device and are very well tuned. It is not difficult for the thumb to reach them. The power button is orange.

iQoo has also provided capacitive shoulder buttons on the right side of the frame. They are set up in such a way that you can use them by holding the phone in landscape mode while playing. On the left side of the iQoo 3 there is a smart button that can be used to access Google Assistant. The phone has a 3.5 mm audio jack at the top, while the USB Type-C port and speaker are at the bottom.

The back panel of the device comes with protection from Corning Gorilla Glass 6, which will protect the phone from minor scratches in everyday use. iQoo presented this smartphone in three color options – Tornado Black, Quantum Silver and Volcano Orange. Our review unit was in the color Tornado Black version, but we really liked the Volcano Orange finish as it looks different from the normal color.

The Aiku 3 has a setting with four rear cameras. The camera module looks similar to most upcoming smartphones today. The iQoo 3 has a 4440 mAh battery and the good thing is that the phone comes with a 55W “Super FlashCharge” charger in the box, which helps to quickly charge the device.

iQoo 3 specifications and software

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset is available in Aiku 3. It is the most powerful chipset ever offered in an Android smartphone, with one core clocked at 2.8 GHz, three cores clocked at 2.4 GHz and the other four cores with a clock speed of 1.8 GHz.

iQoo has released three variants of iQoo 3 on the Indian market. The base version has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory, and its price is 36,990 Rs. Its second version has 256 GB of storage with 8 GB of RAM, which costs 39,990 Rs. There is also 12 GB of RAM and a 256 GB storage option for the phone, which supports 5G. Its price in India is 44,990 rupees. UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM are included in all versions of iQoo 3.

The smartphone has a 6.44-inch full-HD + AMOLED display with a pixel density of 409ppi and support for HDR10 +. The iQoo display has Schott Xensation UP glass for protection and comes with a 91.4 percent screen-to-body ratio.

iQoo

IQoo 3 connectivity options include 5G (top option only), dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS and GLONASS. It is powered by a 4440mAh battery that supports 55W fast charging and also comes with a 55W Super FlashCharge charger in the box. The charger has a 90-degree flexible pill-shaped connector, and Aiku claims it makes it easy to charge your smartphone while playing.

Get to the software. iQoo 3 comes with iQoo UI 1.0 based on Android 10. We liked its user interface as it is very easy to use and easy to watch.

The Iku user interface does not have an app drawer and all icons are displayed on the home screen. Does not cause any problems when used with one hand. There are many customization options available on iQoo. You can choose different animations for lock screen, fingerprint and face recognition. This phone also has an always-on display feature.

Users also have the option to choose between a three-button navigation layout and drag gestures. This feature is easy to use and iQoo has also added a quick launch gesture that makes it easy to drag back and hold. Vivo Jovi’s smart assistant is also present on the device.

iQoo

Android 10 features such as Digital Wellbeing and Parental Control are also available. iQoo 3 has Monster Mode, which instantly increases CPU performance and turns off all power-saving options. This feature also changes the theme of the smartphone. There is also Ultra Game Mode, which when turned on starts all the game functions of the smartphone.

Iku 3 comes loaded with inflated software such as Helo, Dailyhunt, Flipkart, Facebook, WPS Office, Amazon Shopping and Opera. The device also has its own app store called V-Appstore. Let us know that if you run apps like Dailyhunt and Helo, then spam notifications start coming in. If you do not want to use these applications, we recommend that you remove them.

iQoo 3 performance, battery life

The display of the Aiku 3 shows a panel with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. However, the production of colors is very good. The viewing angles of the panel are good and perform well even in sunlight. There are three color modes to choose from and you can also adjust the color temperature. The iQoo 3’s display has a small hole, but it won’t distract you from having fun while watching content. However, we were not happy with the iQoo 3 speakers. It lacks a stereo output and the speaker makes some noise in it for our taste.

Along with the fingerprint scanner, the display also has a face unlock function that is fast and accurate. We didn’t find a problem with it while playing apps or games. Since we had the 12 GB RAM option, multitasking also felt like oil.

iQoo

We saw it playing PUBG Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends. Both games ran at high settings and we didn’t notice any slowdowns or skips throughout the game. We also tested the game trigger while playing PUBG Mobile. We found it very useful for players who love PUBG.

You’ll be happy to know that iQoo 3 provides good battery life. In our HD video loop test, the phone lasted 19 hours and 13 minutes. With regular use, this phone can last about a day and a half without any problems. In our charging test, the iQoo 3 took 30 minutes to charge to 78 percent and took about 50 minutes to fully charge. A short five-minute charge managed to bring the smartphone to 16 percent, which is impressive. If some people compare it to the Realme X50 Pro 5G, then let us know that the phone takes less time than the iQoo 3 to charge 100 percent, but something that should be noted is that the 65 W charger comes with Realme phone and has 4200 mAh There is a small battery.

iQoo 3 cameras

On the back of the Aiku 3 is a four-camera module that reminds us of the Vivo V17. The main camera has a 48-megapixel Sony IMX582 sensor with an aperture of f / 1.79, and the secondary camera has a 13-megapixel telephoto sensor with an aperture of f / 2.46, which supports 2x optical zoom and 20X digital zoom. The other two cameras include a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens with an aperture of f / 2.2 and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with an aperture of f / 2.4. The camera app is similar to the one in the Vivo smartphone.

The iQoo 3 camera setup locks focus quickly and its AI can easily detect which subject is trying to focus the phone’s camera. In addition, the camera also suggests which camera to use to capture a particular frame. In daylight, the smartphone captures light properly. The photos taken in broad daylight look good, but some of the images are slightly dark in color.

Most of the photos did not lack details, grains (fine grains) can be seen in the photos when photos are enlarged and taken. Switching to a wide-angle camera reduces image quality and distorts the edges. We also noticed that the color tone of the photos is also slightly different from the original. The camera supports 2x optical zoom and can take some decent pictures just like the main camera.

The close-ups were good with the main camera. The smartphone creates the effect of natural depth between the subject and the background. You can also take macro photos with iQoo 3 by switching to a wide-angle camera. Macro photos provide decent detail, and iQoo 3 allows you to take pictures very close to the subject.

iqoo

Portrait photos are also good on the phone. The phone allows you to set the blur level before taking a picture, but it lacks a bit of detail compared to other smartphones in this price range.

In low light, the camera’s performance drops to medium and we also noticed a lack of detail in the photos. Turning on night mode doesn’t make much of a difference. However, the phone’s camera performs slightly better in areas with light shadows compared to complete darkness. The exposition looks good together with the details of the photos.

iqoo

Selfies taken with iQoo 3 also looked better. The focus is sharp and the smartphone applies beautification by default. When shooting in bright light, the smartphone automatically activates HDR, which helps ensure better output.

Speaking of video, with the main rear camera, it can record video in 4K at a maximum of 60 frames per second and with a selfie camera with a resolution of 1080p at 60 frames per second. In daylight, we noticed that there was a slight flicker in the video. There is also a super stable mode. However, even after using it, there is a slight vibration in the video. Videos are bad in low light, but Super Steady mode improves the video somewhat.

Sentence

iQoo 3 is the first smartphone from this new brand in India and comes with powerful hardware. The phone comes with a Snapdragon 865 chipset and includes support for UFS 3.1 storage. These two combinations are found in very few smartphones. The phone also has a 5G connectivity option if you take the top option and spend Rs 44,990. Although 5G networks are not available in India at the moment, so you can choose the options below without any worries. In our review, however, we tested only the 5G version with 12 GB of RAM.

Iku 3 software is good. However, it gets even better when the inflated software is removed. Although the camera felt light a few times. Aside from the camera’s performance, iQoo 3 didn’t give us a chance to complain.

iQoo Neo 6 Review: A Powerful Phone at a Reasonable Price!

Published

on

NDTV Gadgets 360 Hindi
iQoo has launched the Neo series in India along with the Neo 6. In this tough competitive segment under Rs 30k, the company has launched the phone with full gear. It carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip, offers 80W fast charging and sports a 120Hz AMOLED display. The charging speed given by the company in this price range is really commendable. It is rare in this segment. But do all these features make the iQoo Neo 6 a phone that can’t be beat? My first impressions of the phone were positive and now it’s time to find out if it’s as good as it looks or not.

iQOO Neo 6 Price in India

The iQoo Neo 6 is priced at Rs 29,999 in India, which comes with the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage model. Its top model comes with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, which costs Rs 33,999. The iQoo Neo 6 can be purchased in Dark Nova and Cyber ​​​​​​​​Rays colors.

iku neo 6 design

The iQoo Neo 6 phone is a rebranded model of the iQoo Neo 6 SE that was launched in China earlier this year. Neo 6 is a large smartphone in terms of dimensions and weighs 190 grams. The phone has a 6.62-inch AMOLED display with a punch-hole design at the top for the selfie camera. Display bezels are thin. The frame of the phone is made of plastic and is kept flat on top and bottom.

iQoo has added an IR (infrared) emitter that sits near the secondary microphone on the top. At the bottom there is a slot for a USB Type C port, a speaker and a SIM tray. The back panel is made of plastic with curved sides. The phone is quite comfortable to hold. Its right side is narrow and carries a thin power button and volume rocker.

The dark new color of the phone looks quite elegant. It has a gradient finish that shows a mixed shade of dark blue and bright blue. If you want a flashier phone, then you can also check out its Cyber ​​​​Rage variant. The phone’s camera module will grab your attention. It has a two-tiered design on which the Neo branding is placed, which is seen separately.

The company has also provided a transparent case inside the phone box. The back panel has a matte finish, so fingerprints don’t fall off so easily. You also get a USB Type C to 3.5mm audio adapter, which is a good thing.

iQoo Neo 6 Specifications and Software

Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC is provided in iQoo Neo 6 which is the most powerful processor for this price range. The Mi 11X competes directly with this phone, which has a similar chip. iQoo says it has included a liquid cooling system in the phone to keep the processor cool.

The Neo 6 has a Full HD Plus E4 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has a 360Hz touch sample rate that can go up to 1200Hz in some games. The display is also HDR10+ certified and its brightness is 800 nits. iQoo has also provided stereo speakers in the Neo 6, but the phone does not have an IP rating.

iqoo

This iQoo phone supports Bluetooth 5.2, dual-band Wi-Fi, four 5G bands, dual 4G VoLTE and five satellite navigation systems. You don’t get NFC in this. iQoo Neo 6 has a 4700mAh battery and supports up to 80W fast charging. You also get a compatible charger in the box.

Talking about the software, it runs on Funtouch OS 12 which is based on Android 12. The company has promised two years of Android updates and 3 years of security updates with the phone. Its user interface is almost similar to Vivo X80 which I reviewed recently. Too bad I have the same experience with bloated software in this as well. Some applications may be uninstalled. The browser keeps sending spam notifications throughout the day which is quite annoying.

iQoo Neo 6 performance and battery life

iQoo Neo 6 has a powerful processor and there is no lag in the phone even with prolonged use. I had its 12GB variant on which I could multitask, switching between apps very comfortably. I didn’t see any apps reloading at any point. The phone has an extended RAM feature and can use up to 4GB of system memory as RAM.

I enjoyed watching videos on the phone’s AMOLED display. Stereo speakers make the experience even better. The refresh rate is high, so scrolling is smooth in apps and menus. The company has set the Smart Switch refresh rate as the default. It runs at 120Hz most of the time at this setting.

iqoo

iQoo Neo 6 has an in-display fingerprint scanner which is quite reliable and never gets damaged during use. FaceUnlock also works in a similar way. The phone scored well in benchmarks. Its AnTuTu score is higher than the OnePlus Nord 2 with 729,331 points. In Geekbench 5, it scored 983 and 3074 points in single and multi-core. In the GFXBench graph, it scored 50fps in the Car Chase test. Users who want good performance, this phone will not disappoint in terms of results.

I played Call of Duty: Mobile on it, which by default was running on very high graphics and had the frame rate set to high by default. I played the game for 20 minutes in which the battery dropped by 5%. The phone didn’t heat up, which explains its liquid cooling capability.

I loved the battery performance of this phone and it lasted comfortably for one and a half days. In the HD video cycle test, the phone lasted 21 hours and 17 minutes, which is quite impressive. Its 80W fast charger charged the phone 83% in 30 minutes and the phone was fully charged within 50 minutes.

iQOO Neo 6K camera

The iQoo Neo 6 features a triple camera setup that includes a 64-megapixel primary lens with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens with a 116-degree field of view, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel camera. The camera app is very easy to use and looks similar to the Vivo X80 app. The main camera takes 16-megapixel photos by default, but you can click full-resolution photos if needed.

His daylight landscape photos were accompanied by detail and subjects were easily recognizable even from a distance. Words written on distant buildings can also be read. AI optimization is available in the phone which improves the contrast in the output. The ultra-wide camera has a wider field of view and gets the same color profile as the main camera.

The phone takes close-up photos with clear and full details. This creates a natural bokeh effect between the background and the subject. Edge detection was good in portrait mode. The macro camera also captured extremely close-up shots.

The phone proved to be very fast when shooting a low-light scene, for which it held the shutter open for a long time. Thanks to this, the image was captured with a clear and detailed picture. In very dark areas, the phone itself suggested switching to night mode.

The phone’s sensor captures the selfie in full resolution. The app adds a beautification filter by default, but it can also be adjusted or disabled if needed. In daylight, the skin tone is accurate to the photo. In low light, the screen flash is activated automatically for better results. Edge detection was good in selfies taken in portrait mode and the level of background blur was also adequate.

Its primary rear camera can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second. Its selfie camera can also shoot videos at this resolution and frame rate, which is rare. Footage was fairly stable in daylight, but motion in low light was a bit shaky. The camera app has a dual video mode so that the main and selfie cameras can record videos at the same time.

our solution

If you are looking for a 30k budget smartphone then you can keep this phone high on your list. The phone’s performance is pretty good, as you’d expect from a device with a Qualcomm chip. The promise of Android and security updates makes it future proof. In my opinion, its base 8GB variant seems better value for money.

I don’t have many complaints about it other than the pre-installed bloatware on the phone. If you pick up the phone for video recording purposes, then be aware that it doesn’t perform as well in low light.

If you want pure software, you can look at the Motorola Edge 30. If you can’t compromise on performance, go for the Mi 11X and OnePlus Nord 2, which are good alternatives in the same price range.
