IQOO3 5G is there a real monster inside?

Let’s workout. IQOO is a sub-brand of VIVO, just like POCO is a sub-brand of Mi Smartphone. Now it is a time to capture more and more market share to survive in the market. Specs have gone high, prices have gone down and so the margin. It is a fight to be won, if not succeeded; you will land up as Sony and HTC.
No doubt IQOO3 is mobile with loads of specs and fresh UI. Capturing the market share is not easy, as it is already captured by Samsung and Mi. There is one catch, there are huge numbers of players in the mid-segment but there are only two players in the high-end smartphone segment, Samsung and iPhone.
Hence what IQOO has tried to do, it is trying to capture a high-end segment just like POCO. At this moment it is competing on high-end specs with competitive price.

Performance and Gaming

In performance front IQOO3 has Snapdragon 865 chipset based on 7nm technology with Adreno 650 GPU. It is powered with 8GB and 12GB RAM with 128GB and 256GB internal memory respectively. It is a perfect combination of performance at the max with full gaming experience.
For the better gaming experience IQOO3 has two pressure-sensitive buttons at the top and lower end of the mobile. These are there for better grip and real vibration feeling of sensitive games. Generally, mobile screen touch-sensitive rate is 120Hz, but IQOO3 has 50% more screen touch-sensitive rate as it is based on 180Hz Super Touch Response rate. Hence we can say that it stands out in terms of gaming experience.

Camera

IQOO3 is powered by quad cameras at the back in an L-pattern with a flash. 48MP (Main camera), 13MP(Telephoto) with up to 20x Digital Zoom, 13MP( Super-wide Angle 120º) and 2MP (for depth effect). For Selfie it has 16MP.
These cameras have effects like anti-shake, beauty mode, burst etc. We are not much impressed with the camera features although it is powered by a good Processor and RAM. IQOO has not worked hard on camera feature; they just wanted to create a good gaming Smartphone.

Battery

We are also not much impressed with the 4440mAh battery, although it has super-fast charging support of 55W. The battery could be better if we are focussing mainly on gaming.
Some basic stuff like FM and NFC is missing. Nowadays NFC is an essential part of any mobile as we are talking about Digital India. Thanks for 5G. 

Conclusion

Yes, we can say that this mobile is a Monster mobile in terms of RAM, Internal Memory and Processor. For gaming purpose, you are going to have a great experience, but it lags behind in the camera front, in this price band. We are also not impressed with IQOO UI as it represents traces of VIVO UI; It is lacking freshness in the interface. What do you say please tell us in the comment below?
