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.
