The Vivo sub-latest brand’s flagships, the iQoo and the iQoo 7 Legend, debuted in Nepal more than a year after its last smartphone. IQoo launched the iQoo 3 5G in Nepal in February 2020, but then remained silent on launches.

Despite having a large 6.6-inch display, it weighs less than 200 grams and, more significantly, feels comfortable to carry. iQOO claims to have utilized Schott Xensation protection on both the front and back of the phone, which isn’t as good as Gorilla Glass but still does the job. All of the buttons are located on the right side, and the power button has a polished finish to distinguish it from the volume rockers.
The iQOO 7 also lacks a 3.5mm headphone port and a microSD card slot, just as the Mi 11X. Similarly, since the firm is delivering an in-display fingerprint sensor, the power button does not serve as a fingerprint sensor.
A 6.62-inch 1080p AMOLED panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate is used here. Aside from the specs, this is a high quality screen, however it isn’t as nice as flagship phones that are rated A+.
You may, however, adjust the light intensity in the display settings at any time. Similarly, the touch sampling rate is 300Hz, which is somewhat lower.
It may also be set to a very low brightness for usage in bed, and the auto-brightness sensor is quite quick. Additionally, the phone has a DC dimming function. As a result, you may enable low-brightness anti-flicker mode, which helps to decrease visual fatigue when the screen brightness is low.
Regardless, the technology of the iQOO 7 is rather impressive. Gaming performance is outstanding thanks to the Snapdragon 870, 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
You may increase the graphics quality to Ultra HDR graphics and Ultra frame rates if you desire greater graphics quality, but frame rates will suffer as a result.
Furthermore, the iQOO 7’s major advantage over the Mi 11X has to be in the photography and videography departments. You’re getting a lot more powerful gear here. It has a 48MP Sony IMX598 main lens with OIS, a higher-resolution 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a tiny 2MP portrait camera.
On the battery front, the iQOO 7 comes with a smaller 4400mAh cell that has the same durability as the Mi 11X. The charging speed, on the other hand, is outstanding. The 66W charger included in the package charges the battery from 0 to 50% in about 10 minutes, and the phone is completely charged in less than 35 minutes.
Furthermore, the dual speaker arrangement of the iQOO 7 is fantastic. Once again, it falls short of those seen in premium phones. Because the phone’s haptics aren’t flagship-level, the vibration motor might have been better.
