vivo iqoo 8

Gaming is reaching new heights and many tech giants are working on specialized gaming phones to boost the fun. Recently, we have come to see new gaming beasts like Realme GT Racing and ROG Phone 5s. They are the best-in-class devices to play heavy mobile games like PUBG, Call of Duty, Asphalt Nitro 9, and so on. To compete with its counterparts, Vivo has brought a new iQOO 8, a top-of-line Vivo gaming smartphone. Let's uncover the advantages and disadvantages of Vivo iQOO 8. Pros 120Hz AMOLED display Excellent Gameplay 120W Fast Charge Cons No IP rating No OIS or EIS No audio jack Design With a wide flat screen, iQOO 8 looks bulky and thick, weighing in at 200 grams. The device is available in three colors White, Orange, and Black. The first two shades attract more, yet Black is a decent choice. Looking toward the front, the display panel obtains 87% of screen-to-body ratio. A selfie lens is locked into a punch hole in the touchscreen. A regular in-display FR is there for biometric unlock. The back acquires a rectangular-shaped camera setup, containing three lenses and a LED flash. Unfortunately, this premium device is at risk, not IP rated, and thus not a good resistance to water and dust. Display   Vivo iQOO 8 offers a 6.56-inch AMOLED display to let enjoy a next-level watching experience. It has a 120Hz refresh rate for better video streaming. The display delivers graphical frames even smoother. Enjoy Full HD cinema on Netflix. HDR10+ enhances colors saturation. The typical brightness is 450 nits, whereas the max bright level is 1000 nits for the peak performance under sunlight. Software OriginOS is the new skin of Android 11 OS. You are getting all-new features including Dynamic Media Control, Built-in Screen Recorder, Greater Control over Conversation and Notification, Schedule Dark theme, and Temporary Permission Grant for apps. Camera A 50MP main lens offers good image quality but lacks OIS and EIS. Create 4k snaps at 30fps or have more fun with FHD slow-mo records at 240fps. The night mode, aided by AI algorithm, lets you click sharp photographs despite the low light. Two other lenses are 13MP ultrawide and 13MP telephoto. Secondary lens is to offer the ultimate view for landscapes and capture a 120-degree field of view. A wide-angle 16MP selfie camera is right there on the front. Chipset Graphics are excellent in the administration of Snapdragon 888 chipset and Adreno 660 GPU. Scoring 822,100 on the AnTuTu v9 benchmark, Vivo iQOO 8 reaches one of the world’s flagship smartphone performances. Two RAM and Storage configurations are 8/128 GB, and 12/256 GB. More RAM means more apps, thus choose accordingly. The lack of a microSD card slot leads you to choose a memory variant carefully. You have the advantage of 120W Fast Charge, and hence you can recharge quickly and continue to extract power from a 4350mAh battery for as long as you want. It may take less than an hour to top up 100% life. Verdict If you can take of water submersions, iQOO 8 is an excellent gaming choice. If not satisfied, there is an even better option like iQOO 8 Pro, offering QHD+ watching stuff, 8k video rec, and Wireless Charging capability.
