Iqoo Z6 Pro Body & Design

Firstlook, the camera’s the most eye-catching part. The Iqoo Z6 pro back looks fantastic thanks to its camera module. Polycarbonate [ Plastic ] is used for the back panel in this Phone, and it looks great! You will love the design for sure.

Holding it feels like a premium phone. There is a big Iqoo logo at the back, and the back is plain like there are no patterns, only simple color.

It comes in two color Options: Phantom Dusk and Legion Sky. My Personal Favorite is Legion Sky, but Phantom Dusk is also a good color. This Phone is not IP certified. It is quite surprising since most phones come with IP certificates at this price.

The Camera Module is slightly protruded from the back pane. It has 2 Camera rings, and the design is truly stunning and attractive. Furthermore, it feels only about 160 grams when you hold it, even though it weighs 180 grams.

If we talk about the front side, it has one waterdrop notch that I feel is quite dated. But the good thing is that the bezels are skinny. Front Display is protected from Schott Xensation Glass.

The Display has good colors, contrast, and situations are well balanced. Brightness is 1300 Nits, the highest among industries standard in this price range. Even in sunlight, the Display is visible, and viewing angles are also quite impressive.

Iqoo Z6 Pro Storage

This Phone comes with a Snapdragon 778G, and a 6nm Processor. Which is more battery sufficient, and it runs smoothly on games and multitasking of apps. Currently, this chipset is ruling the market and is the most used and visible chipset.

One thing I just loved about this Phone is that the Phone is smooth like butter. Apps open in milliseconds, all thanks to ROM, UFS 2.2 Storage, and fast reading and writing the data.

This Phone is specially made for a performance-centric audience. If you are looking for a phone with a good battery, Good camera, and Good Processing Power, then this Phone is for you.

Iqoo Z6 Pro comes with 3 storage variants. Memory will remain the same at 128 Gb, but 3 ram options 6Gb, 8Gb, 12Gb. You can select according to your usage.

One more feature available with today’s Most of today’s smartphones is Virtual RAM. I believe that this is a complete waste of time and that brands are simply playing with the numbers. In this Phone, you can extend up to 4 Gb Ram means if you buy a 6 Gb Phone, you can extend 4 Gb Ram so that you will get a total of 10 Gb of Ram.

Note: There is no MicroSD card slot on this device, so you’ll get the default ROM of 128 GB.

The iQoo Z6 Pro comes with wi-fi 6 connectivity and Bluetooth 5.2. Unfortunately, it does not feature NFC, a standard for smartphones in this price range.

The Iqoo Z6 pro is a 5G phone and supports 7 bands, but 5G is not available in India. In this case, we can use dual 4G VoLTE. It also offers wi-fi Calling, which is becoming increasingly popular in India.

This Phone comes with a Dual Nano-Sim Tray. We can use two Nano-SIM cards on this Phone, but there is no Micro SD slot, so if you wish to increase the amount of storage, you will not be able to do.

The Biggest Drawback of this Phone is there is no Headphone jack. People who use phones below 25k mostly use wired earphones for entertainment and multimedia. Therefore, companies should provide Headphone jacks on phones under 25k.

In terms of biometrics, there is a built-in Optical Fingerprint sensor that is fast and accurate. You can also use Face Unlock.

When it comes to audio, this Phone only has mono speakers. Since this Phone is mainly for gamers and multimedia users, we think there should be stereo speakers. Still, mono speakers are also pretty good.

With the Iqoo Z6 Pro, you’ve got three cameras. The primary camera is 64 MP with EIS. Additionally, there’s an 8 MP Ultra Wide-Angle lens and a 2 MP Macro lens. The Phone does not have Telephoto lenses.

A built-in electronic image stabilization system [ EIS ] on the rear camera works as a gimbal to provide video stabilization during recording.

The device comes with a 16 MP front camera that shoots 1080p video at 30 frames per second. The camera captures good photos with AI-powered portrait shots and good night photography.

We tested the camera by capturing images of different things. We find that the ultra-wide camera captures an image of about 117, which isn’t that wide. The Color contrast, Situation is well balanced.

It automatically adjusts the contrast when we capture the image in sunlight. Even selfie cameras capture great pictures.


7. Os and Security

Operating SystemFuntouch OS
AndroidAndroid 12
Security Updates security patch update : April 2022
Iqoo Z6 Pro Os & Security

Iqoo Z6 Pro is powered by FunTouch OS 12, based on Android 12. I was pleasantly surprised by the performance, where apps opened quickly and smoothly switch between them.

I also liked how fluid the animations felt. Some new features have been added to FunTouch OS 12, such as Material You theming. The system changes its colors according to the wallpaper selected. You can now modify the UI color in the Lock screen and Wallpaper settings, which is a welcome improvement.

I don’t particularly appreciate that there are a lot of unwanted pre-installed apps. You can uninstall these apps, but you still get these types of apps even when you pay 25000 RS.


8. Gaming

BGMIUltra and HDR settings
CODHigh and Very High settings
Iqoo Z6 Pro Gaming

As this Phone is equipped with the Snapdragon 778G, it is one of the best processors for gaming. As a result, it is one of the most potent gaming phones. We played two of the most popular games on this Phone, BGMI, and COD.

There is no doubt that the Display on this device is among the best. Even a Mono speaker is enough for gaming. We never notice frame drops while playing games on it.

Now Comes to the best part of this Phone which I love the most, is Ultra Game Mode. Under this, we can adjust frame rates and latency. Under this Mode, there are some unique gaming modes like

  • Balance Mode
  • Eagle Eye View
  • Performance Mode

Another feature I think gamers will love is the 4D game vibrations with Linear Motor, making it easy to feel the vibrations while reloading and firing a bullet.

If we enable the Eagle Eye view, that increases the contrast through which we can play games easily.

Wait, there is still one more thing that remains. This Phone comes with a 33923mm2 cooling system, the most extensive Cooling system in this segment that uses a vapor cooling chamber.

This Phone would be the best gaming phone if it had a 120Hz display. But still, this is a Good Gaming phone at this price.


9. Battery

There will be no problems since the Snapdragon 778G is a well-optimized processor. It will make the battery life as good as it can be.

In gaming, I got about 4.5 to 5 hours of screen time. I could easily last 5 hours doing light tasks like browsing, texting, watching videos, etc. Still, you’re fine if you’re a heavy user because the Phone has a 66W charger.

IQOO Z6 Pro 5G features a 4700mAh battery with 66W fast-charging capability and will take approximately 18 minutes to charge from 0% to 50%.
