Chinese corporations are so passionate about competition among themselves that they are already creating sub-brands of their sub-brands. So the iQOO 3 model separated from Vivo, which looks extremely tempting due to its characteristics. A strong bid for success, especially if you pay attention to the version with 5G.

But here it is not ultrasonic, but optical, which means that you should not wait for high reading speed. A selfie camera is embedded in the right corner of the screen.

Housing Review:

The smartphone is built on an aluminum frame. The screen is covered with Gorilla Glass 6, although there is no fashionable rounding of the ends of the display, which will positively affect the impact resistance.

The back is also made of Gorilla Glass 6. The display frames here are really thin, although the “chin” is still somewhat thicker. Finally, the smartphone will be available in three colors: Volcano Orange, Tornado Black, Quantum Silver.

CPU, memory, communications:

Of course, you can’t be considered the flagship at the beginning of 2020 if you are not built on one of the most powerful platforms.

Vivo iQOO 3 received an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, made according to the 7-nm process technology, and capable of working at a maximum clock frequency of 2.84 GHz. The Adreno 650 graphics accelerator works with him.

Vivo iQOO 3 CPU, memory, communications

To prevent overheating and throttling, the manufacturer has provided an advanced cooling system called Carbon Fiber VC Liquid Cooling, which can reduce the processor temperature by 12 degrees.

The memory in the smartphone by today’s standards, although there is a lot, could be more. Judge for yourself, the drive here is 128 or 256 GB (the chips are made according to the fastest UFS 3.1 protocol), and the RAM is 8 or 12 (5G version) GB. Expand the drive will not work, but there is a place for two SIM cards.

And a little about communications. Vivo iQOO 3 has everything that a modern smartphone needs; for example, it uses the modern standard Bluetooth 5.1, there is also NFC. Of course, the manufacturer could add, for example, a dual-band GPS or Type-C port with support for USB 3.1, but, apparently, such delights would lead to a rise in price.

But in place of the beloved by much 3.5-mm audio jacks. And for special connoisseurs, a version with support for fifth-generation mobile networks is available. But for Russia, 5G remains out of date.

Vivo iQOO 3 Review Camera:

Vivo iQOO 3 Camera Review

Technically, Vivo managed to create a very balanced photosystem in 3. The main module consists of four sensors: the main one with 48 megapixels with a Sony IMX582 sensor and (f / 1.79, phase autofocus), 13-megapixel with a telephoto lens (f / 2, 5), an “ultra-wide” of 13 megapixels (f / 2.2) and a viewing angle of 120 degrees. The fourth sensor “for show” – 2-megapixel camera for bokeh. A 16-megapixel front camera is capable of writing FHD video from 30 fps.

Vivo iQOO 3 Review Battery:

The autonomy parameters of iQOO three promise up to two days of work on a single charge. The battery has a capacity of 4400 mAh, but much more interesting is the quick charge of the device. Here, support for recharging power as much as 55 watts is implemented.

A complete charger can fully charge the battery in less than an hour. Are you planning to buy a Vivo in 3? Ready to choose a little-known brand for a good balance of price and quality? Write in the comments:
