Is It Worth Buying IQOO Z5 5G?

IQOO Z5 5G Review

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.
