IQOO is back with another gaming smartphone and this time, it’s worth your money and time. The IQOO Z5 5G is powered by Snapdragon 778G SoC but it only has two 5G bands which mean, this can’t be called a true 5G smartphone.
IQOO Z5 5G Price in India
IQOO Z5 5G Price in India starts from Rs 23,990 for the 8GB RAM + 128GB Storage variant and another variant is priced at Rs 26,990 for the 8GB RAM + 256GB Storage.
It will go for sale on 3rd October 2021 via Amazon and it’s available in Mystic Space and Artic Dawn colour options.
Is It Worth Buying IQOO Z5 5G?
Yes, IQOO Z5 5G is worth buying because its offer value but it’s not for everyone. The device has an LCD display and it’s made out of plastic while it only has two 5G bands. So IQOO has made some compromises but as this is priced at Rs 23999, everything works out well.
In short, if you’re that person who wanted 5G ready smartphone and AMOLED display then IQOO Z5 5G is not the best option, you can take look at Motorola Edge 20 Fusion or spend some extra and go for RealMe GT Master edition, or Motorola Edge 20 5G, or OnePlus Nord 2 or wait for Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite NE.
No doubt, IQOO has used good quality LCD panel but in the end, LCD will be LCD, can’t compete with AMOLED.
Talking about myself, I’m using an AMOLED screen for about five years and now, I don’t think I will ever use an LCD display on a smartphone.
If you’re following me on YouTube, I have recently posted Motorola Edge 20 5G review and there too I shared the same thing.
Overall, it depends on what you’re looking for in a smartphone. It could be, best camera, display, battery life, 5G, or even design.
The thing is, you won’t get everything in one single smartphone, companies will make some compromises and you have to choose, what kind of compromises you’re willing to make.
Overwise, spend more than 30k or more and get the best smartphone.
That was it, I have already said a lot in IQOO Z3 5G Review, so I don’t want to repeat the same again. In short, IQOO Z5 5G is worth the Rs 23,999 price tag.
Talking about IQOO Z5 5G
The IQOO Z5 5G has a 6.67-inches 120Hz LCD with a pick brightness of 650 nits. So whether you want to use the phone outdoor or indoors, the display will be visible enough to do almost anything, whether it’s gaming or taking calls.
It has a 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro while there is a 16MP selfie shooter. The rear camera can shoot videos up to [email protected] while the front can shoot up to [email protected]
Under the hood, it’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC and it’s running on Fun touch OS 12-based Android 11.
IQOO is all about gaming and that’s the reason why IQOO has added Stereo Speakers and it performs very good. There is nothing to complain about the audio quality, you will be more than happy with the audio.
For power, IQOO has used a 5,000 mAh battery with 44W fast charging support. It will take 26 minutes to charge from 0% to 50%.
As I have said, IQOO Z5 5G is a good offering from IQOO and it does have its Pros and Cons but in the end, it depends on what you’re looking for in a smartphone.
