For the tech community, 2021 could turn into the time of iQOO. In the wake of presenting two of the most balanced spending leaders of the year in the iQOO 7 series, iQOO has now set its sight on the sub-25K midrange smartphone section. Their latest contribution, the iQOO Z3 5G, conveys a strong punch at the cost and takes steps to change the dynamics of this portion for great. Here’s why the iQOO Z3 5G is probably the best phones under Rs 25,000 in India today:
Fully Loaded with Gaming Features
Top-notch performance is somewhat embedded in the DNA of the iQOO brand. The iQOO Z3 5G is the first phone in India to launch with the Snapdragon 768G, a premium mid-range processor with an Antutu score of about 450K+. This implies you get a limit of 60fps gaming on even the most demanding titles like COD Mobile, and the phone doesn’t break a sweat even after long hours of gaming.
Moreover, iQOO Z3 5G’s Gaming mode gives further benefits like performance optimization, Eagle Eye Enhancement, etc. The phone’s display upholds a 180Hz touch sampling rate ensuring all swipes and taps are instant registered, thus giving you an edge even for competitive gaming.
A primary concern for gamers during Indian summers is how well the phones can handle their thermals. Well, the iQOO Z3 highlights a five-layer fluid cooling system(Superfluid Cooling Pipe + Multi-layer 3D (5814mm2 graphite layer) graphite heat sink + high thermal copper foil + thermal gel + 6 temperature sensors) which can detect the heat source and adapt the optimal cooling solution. This effectively means that it can chill off the phone under a high load and reduce the core temperature by 10 degrees.
All-round Performance Champion
Aside from its fantastic gaming, the iQOO Z3 5G is also a fabulous performer concerning everyday usage. Starting with the ultra-smooth 120Hz refresh rate screen, which means each action you perform on this phone, all your app transitions and social scrolls, all that will flow smoothly. iQOO has packed the Z3 with strong internals too. You get either 6 or 8 gigs of LPDDR4x RAM combined with 128 or 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage.
But, here’s the kicker. On the 8GB variations of this phone, you also get “Extended RAM” technology. This means the phone can utilize around 3GB of its storage space as additional RAM, making the RAM management genuinely outstanding in its segment. Apps stay in memory much longer, and your multitasking experience is elevated by a notch or two.
Also that the 768G running the show here is a 5G chip, thus making this phone future proof and giving you access to 5G when it at long last makes its debut in India.
Lasts Longer, Charges Faster
iQOO Z3 5G comes with a 4400mAh battery, combined with Funtouch OS’s battery optimizations, resulting in a fantastic battery life experience. In our Epic Battery Test, the iQOO Z3 managed to last over 7 hours of consistent Screen-On Time, which is the longest time we’ve seen any 120Hz LCD screen last until this point. Besides, there’s the additional benefit of the quick 55-Watt Flash charge that this phone supports. It can go from 0-100% in around 50 minutes, and in only 19 minutes of charging, it can top up 50% of the battery.
Cameras meant for Social Media
iQOO Z3 5G uses the long periods of experience FunTouch OS brings in its image processing algorithms to deliver a stunning camera experience. Getting with the rear cameras, the 64MP primary camera with GW3 sensor can shoot pleasing pictures, regardless of lighting condition is, and also enables the iQOO Z3 to catch super clear 4K 60FPS videos. That itself is something very few phones under 25K can do, and the iQOO Z3 can also shoot stabilized 4K 30FPS video. The rear camera setup also consists of an ultra-wide 8MP shooter, which adds a new viewpoint to each shot. Talking about unique perspectives, the 2MP devoted macro camera sensor lets you up near your subject and conveys some impressive macro shots.
Coming to the front, we get a 16MP selfie shooter, which can do excellent selfies, stunning portraits, and even take gorgeous night mode selfies using iQOO’s Super Night mode. As an overall package, the iQOO Z3’s cameras are unquestionably outstanding amongst others you can get at this cost.
iQOO has pulled off a shocker by pricing the iQOO Z3 5G so competitively. The base model with 6GB/128GB storage has been priced at Rs 19,990, while the top-end 8GB/256GB variation costs Rs 22,990. If this wasn’t good enough, there are some crazy offers that iQOO is offering in association with Amazon. Beginning with a discount of Rs 1,500 on all variations using certain credit card transactions, plus you can avail Zero Cost EMI options.
Also, at these prices, the sheer worth that the iQOO Z3 5G delivers is unrivalled. You get a phone that looks great, performs extraordinary, keeps going long, charges fast, clicks great pictures, shoots crisp 4K 60fps video, and the list goes on. It’s easy to understand why iQOO calls this phone fully loaded because that’s precisely what it is.
