Review of the iQoo Z3: A Powerful Smartphone at a Reasonable Price

iQoo, a Vivo sub-brand, has experience with 5G. In India and our Bangladesh, it has so far released four smartphones, all of which enable 5G (including the Z3). Given that India's networks are still under good construction, it makes sense for phone manufacturers to focus on good looking features other than very high-speed data. In reality, any company that sells a smartphone between Rs. only 17,000 and Rs. 22,000 has managed to add value. The Mi 10i phone (Review) from Xiaomi smartphone has a 108-megapixel back camera, the Realme X7 5G (Review) from Realme has dual 5G standby and a 120Hz Super AMOLED display, and so on and this is very good point.

Review of the iQoo Z3 A Powerful Smartphone at a Reasonable Price


Because this is iQoo's first cheap this smartphone for the Indian and Bangladesh market, it uses Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 768G CPU, which is expected to be exclusive for a time. Has iQoo done just enough to distinguish itself in a competitive smartphone market with devices from a variety of manufacturers?

iQoo Z3 is a design by iQoo smartphone

The iQoo Z3 phone in Cyber Blue was sent to me for evaluation. Plastic makes up the smartphone's frame and the back panel. The matte back panel seems smooth and resists this fingerprints, but it lets dust to accumulate very quickly. When phone viewed from different perspectives, the Cyber Blue finish good features a rainbow-like multicolor iridescent finish that looks distinctive an this is really amazing. The Ace Black finish, which includes a grey and black gradient this phone, is recommended for those seeking for something more discreet on iqoo.

Given its 6.5-inch display, the smartphone seems to be fairly thin and easy to carry. The solitary speaker, main mic, and Type-C USB connection are all located at the phone bottom, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack is very good. The fingerprint reader is built into the power button this is new feature , which is located on the right side of the iqoo z3 device, and the volume rocker, which is located above it. The smartphone fingerprint reader is conveniently located and immediately unlocks the phone.

Specifications and software for the iQoo Z3 smartphone

The iQoo Z3 this phone is India's first smartphone to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 768G mobile platform much better. The iQoo Z3 supports two 5G bands (n77, n78) like many other smartphones in this category, however, it does not enable dual 5G standby but this is not good. The Snapdragon 768G is a significantly improved version of the Snapdragon 765G, which was used in the Vivo V20 Pro smartphone (Review) and the OnePlus Nord (Review) in 2020. As a result, iQoo phone's offer of it in a sub-Rs. only 20,000 smartphone is intriguing.

In India and Bangladesh, the iQoo Z3 is available in three different variants. There are three memory space configurations: 6GB RAM + 128GB good storage, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. They all include a hybrid SIM slot that can accommodate a 1TB micro SDcard for expansion on iqoo.


Vivo smartphone's FunTouch OS powers the iQoo Z3. My unit was running the May 2021 Android latest security update, which is now at android version 11.1. It is based on Android 11 and is currently at version 11.1. At the time of writing, iQoo has not made any announcements regarding a switch to Vivo phone's next-generation Origin OS, which is currently available on the Chinese version of this iqoo amartphone.

In terms of phone design, FunTouch OS resembles pure Android version, but it includes numerous customizations that most other Android skins do not on iqoo z3 phone. You may customize the unlock screen, face recognition, charging, USB insertion much better, and even putting the smartphone to sleep and waking it up to good animations. On the other phone hand, unlike Oppo's ColorOS or Realme phone's Realme UI-powered devices, there is no option to customize the icon form officel. On the Z3, iQoo has kept its own dialer and SMS applications is an very good, as well as many iQoo-branded apps (such as Notes, Video, EasyShare, and so on) is much usefull apps. Bloatware is restricted to only three apps: Snapchat, Dailyhunt, and Moj, which can easily be removed if no longer required then is very good side.

Performance and battery life of the iQoo Z3 smartphone

The iQoo Z3 smartphone's 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz this time it's very fast, which is ideal for gaming. It's made of reinforced Panda glass, which very quickly takes up the fingerprints and is difficult to remove, but you can try. In direct sunshine, the display is fairly bright. The colors are a little intense, but the text and the smartphotos are crisp. In regular use, the 120Hz refresh rate makes the phone program feel fairly smooth. The display is HDR10 certified, according to iQoo smartphone. On the Youtube app, I was able to watch HDR content, but Netflix did not, but don't worry you can easily download an install on according.

Overall, there was no stuttering or lag i like it. In our benchmarking tests, the new Snapdragon 768G SoC showed a considerable improvement on iqoo smartphone. The iQoo Z3 scored 4,45,029 on AnTuTu and 710 and 1,985 on Geekbench 5's single and multi-core tests, respectively on the phone. The chip outperformed the Snapdragon 750G in the OnePlus Nord CE 5G smartphone (Review), which scored 3,91,813 in AnTuTu and 639 and 1830 in Geekbench 5's single and multi-core tests, respectively smartphone reviews.

The phone bottom speaker may go fairly loud, however, it has a tinny sound. It'll suffice for the gaming, but not for viewing movies or listening to music much better. At the very least, iQoo has included a 3.5mm headphone port for those who want higher audio quality this phone sound quality is very nice.

The 4,400mAh long life battery charges rapidly, moving from zero to 67 percent in 30 minutes and taking only 60 minutes to fully charge. In our HD video loop test, the smartphone scored an amazing 19 hours and 32 minutes of battery life it's much better battery life. The smartphone handled most days with only 30-40% battery remaining in the evening after an hour of gaming, some photographs, phone calls, and frequent monitoring of social media applications, which is very amazing.

When photo shooting in daylight, the images turned out a little saturated, but with a lot of textural detail. The noise was under control, and the shadows were detailed, but there was purple fringing in the brighter portions of the shooting photo. The ultra-wide-angle phone camera took decent pictures, but it couldn't catch much detail. When this phone photographing in bright light, there was a lot of purple fringing. Surprisingly, the 2X digital zoom function provided shooting photos with a lot of clarity. Photos taken in portrait mode had a little more saturation and strong edge recognition but photo quality is very nice.

Even in settings with some sort of illumination in the area, shooting photos captured in low light had noise under control, but clarity in the shadows was poor. The Night camara mode was able to brighten up sceneries and regulate the highlights.


I liked the editing photos obtained with the back camera instead of the 2-megapixel macro camera since it caught odd-looking color tones much better.

Font camara selfies taken in the daytime turned out perfectly, although they were a little too bright. Despite this, the front camera did a very good job of exposing subjects and surroundings. As long as there was a source of light around, the font camara selfie camera performed a decent job in low light phone. Even with beautifying turned off, night mode camara screws things up and adds some type of cosmetics to faces, making individuals seem textureless and fake.

This camara videos recorded with the main camera in 1080p at 30 and 60 frames per second exhibited good quality and stabilization. When recording movies with the ultra-wide-angle camera, I observed a lot of purple fringing, much like when taking camara photographs. The phone video shot at 1080p 30fps seemed a little grainy in low light photo, and EIS caused a terrible shimmering effect when you walking.

When filming in daytime and low light photo, 4K videos looked to have some odd color saturation but this not bad. The same shooting videos lacked stabilization, thus they seemed choppy when filmed while walking or panning.

The Z3 gives into a strong competitor at the top end of the cheap iqoo phone market. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G processor, which is its major smartphone hardware feature, outperforms the competition, although not by much.


A vivid 120Hz refresh rate on this phone display is included, as well as best-in-class charging with a 55W adaptor. Despite its plastic frame and back, the smartphone nevertheless looks very beautiful in Cyber Blue and is relatively future-ready thanks to its 5G compatibility on iqoo z3. The sole drawback is the camera's mediocre low-light better performance.
