The iQoo 3 is released in india and it is the first phone from this brand being introduced here. This phone has many versions but the 12GB RAM and 256 GB storage seems to be attractive option priced around the level of Rs 45000. This top of the offer version supports 5G also. The basic version having 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage is starting at around Rs 35000 only.
It is having the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC processor in it. It has a big 6.44-inch impressive display but is slight on the heavier side at 214g. It has a powerful 4440 mAh battery and has support for 55 Watt Camera Flash Charge. This phone runs its own iQoo UI on the Android 10 and comes with a few preinstalled Apps also. For gaming enthusiasts it has touch sensitive shoulder buttons which are very useful during the gaming sessions. This phone has a camera of 48 MP as the primary camera, 13 MP telephoto camera, 13 MP wide angle camera, and 2MP depth sensor. There is one 16 MP front camera also. iQoo phone camera is having all the latest modes and features like Night View, Portrait, slow motion, time-lapse photography, professional mode, AR cute shot, short video, PDAF, and smart image recognition.
So specification wise it seems to be a good impressive phone but it exactly depends on ones use whether to go for it or not. In case one has economy in mind then there are comparable models albeit in low RAM capacities of 4 GB and low storage of 128 GB which are quite low on the pocket also costing around Rs 14000 to 16000. Some of these are under Vivo brand especially models Y19, Y71, and Y15. Battrery is one of the most important part in a mobile and these Vivo ones come with a 5000 mAh battery.
iQoo 3 being a new entrant in India has a craze in the beginning but we have to see the after sales service and other factors also. It was seen in the past that many brands came in India but when it came to repair and after sales service they could not give a good support. So decision to buy iQoo 3 or some other at lower specifications considering the price differential is to be taken by the buyer.
