iQoo is the latest smartphone brand to enter the Indian market, and while most companies aim at the budget segment to make a mark, iQoo is going the other way. The iQoo 3 has been tasked with the duty of putting this brand on the map, and it features some serious hardware. For starters, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, the most powerful processor currently available for Android phones. That's not all, the top-end model of the iQoo 3 also sports 5G connectivity (which is only good for boasting since we don't have the networks in India yet). With a starting price of Rs. 36,990, the iQoo 3 seems to offer good value on paper. Should you put your money on this new player? We review the device to find out.

  • Fabulous!
    Sumit Kumar Majhi (Mar 12, 2020) on Flipkart
    I'm writing this review after 5days of heavy uses. PROS: Grt battery back up of aprox one day although playing 5 hr of pubg and call of duty in high graphics. Also Streaming vdo in mobile data. As of sd 865, no lag and no heating issue found. So it's a performance beast. Also How can u forget those hairtrigger's benefits. Due to lpddr5 Ram and ufs 3.1 rom( only on this phn) apps are running buttery smooth and lightening fast. Charging is so fast,i.e,10% to 100% in 40 min aprox. So no use of this L-shaped data cable. In the charging tym it jus warms up. But again cools down jus in 30 sec. I think camera is told to be unterated as it is not. Camera is good enough i.e, sharp bright picture,u ll not regret on this camera set up. Front camera is decent. That tiny lil punch hole in the corner is not bothering at all while playing video. 5g is not in India but 4g is much faster than other 4g modem. So 5g is jus bonus not everything that u should not hv buy this phn. 3.5mm jack audio output is next level due to its hifi-dec and although it hasn't a stereo speaker but it's loud and clear audio experience. Talking abt the iqoo UI it's simple and not as heavy as funtouch os. Out of 256 gb internal storage 246 gb available. It defines how light it is, having so many customizations. CONS: my disappointments are this phn is 9.2 mm thick and wt is 212gm heavy. As a flagship it has only a 60hz display. I think it should have at least a 90hz display.

    I m totally disappointed & dissatisfied with this phone, it reaches to 43degrees and more, with in 15 mins of use. That can be watching you tube videos, playing games in low graphic settings etc. Post speaking to customer support of iqoo, they send there technician at my place to see why it's heat up. His reply was hilarious, he said "sir u have purchased top end processor hence this much heat is bound to happen. We will only replace the handset if it cross 50 degrees." My wife taunts me that I can make chapattis on this post 20 mins of use. After spending 37k on this phone, I m totally disappointed. Now I m thinking of putting this phone on OLX to recover my money. My request to all potential buyers for iqoo3 to not to spend money on this.

    Never ever buy this vivo phone...even in this high budget phone, they are trying to push ads and useless apps as much as possible.
