iQOO 3 features, specs
The iQOO 3 comes with a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip. As revealed previously it comes in three RAM/Storage options.
On the camera front, there are four rear snappers: a 48-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel telephoto lens, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The front camera stands at 16-megapixel.
It is backed by a 4,400mAh battery with 55W fast charging and runs Android 10. It comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Should you buy it?
The iQOO 3 might be featuring a year-old flagship but has safely become one of the most affordable offerings with 5G connectivity and high-end specs. Given that the 865 chip is still a decent performer and can handle tasks well, it shouldn’t be a problem going for the phone right now.
However, the issue could be the phone sticking to Android 10. Although, it supports two years’ software updates and will get hold of Android 12.
Another thing is that the phone doesn’t get a high refresh rate and if are a sucker for it, this might not be an option for you.
