In terms of design, Neo 6 is not far from the Z series. It uses a tried and tested design using a gradient finish, a squarish camera assembly and a sleek side profile.
– As soon as you hold this smartphone in hand, you can immediately identify two things:
– First it is made of a polycarbonate.
– and second is how light it is.
– With the use of polycarbonate, iQOO has compromised on a premium in-hand feel.
– iQOO has introduced the rear panel of Neo 6 with gradient finish. It has been introduced in two colors named Dark Nova and Cyber Rage.
– While the dark nova color appears green, but if you hold the smartphone and move it, then it appears black to you. On the other hand, the Cyber Range color variant appears slightly Turkish Blue.
– Overall, the Neo 6 is a good looking and sturdy phone.
Talking about the display, the iQOO Neo 6 sports a 6.62-inch E4 AMOLED panel that delivers FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. These numbers are the same as what we saw on the iQOO 9 SE and iQOO 7.
– The panel also has WideVine L1 certification which is required to stream HD and HDR content from apps like Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, and more. This means that you can stream your favorite movie, or series on your phone in the best quality possible.
– Good connectivity features The stereo speaker setup makes up for the lack of a dedicated audio jack.
– Produced by the handset’s dual speakers. As far as connectivity is concerned, the iQOO Neo 6 supports four 5G bands – n1/n41/n77/n78, 2.4G/5G Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, OTG and comes with dual SIM card slot.
Smooth gaming and lag-free day-to-day performance
– iQOO Neo 6 justifies its mid-range gaming smartphone moniker. The fast processor and ample LPDDR5 memory ensure lag-free processing and multitasking performance. You can play new games like BGMI, COD Mobile and Apex Legends on decent graphics settings without any performance issues and the graphics are handled beautifully by the device.
– The 9K color visuals and graphics looked very attractive on the FHD+ AMOLED display. I am quite happy with its smooth gaming and lag-free day-to-day performance.
iQOO Neo 6 comes with triple camera setup
The smartphone includes a 64MP Samsung GW1P sensor for wide-angle shots, an 8MP sensor for ultra-wide shots, and a 2MP sensor for macro shots.
– There is a 16MP camera on the front for selfie. As for their performance, you will be most impressed by the performance of Samsung sensors.
– Under such favorable conditions, the main camera of iQOO Neo 6 64MP manages to capture decent still photos.
– On the other hand, the 16MP selfie camera manages to click some decent pictures in broad daylight.
– If you are into videography, you will notice that the iQOO Neo 6 has good video recording capabilities.
– It can shoot videos in 4K resolution up to 60fps. The presence of OIS helps ensure that the shot footage remains stable when you take a handheld shot. However, exposure metering and color accuracy are not 100 percent accurate.
– Smooth software and fast 80W fast-charging iQOO Neo 6 runs on Vivo’s FunTouch OS v12 based on Android 12, which comes with UI customization and utility features. 30,000 for a handset which costs Rs.
The smartphone delivers one day battery life. What makes this package good is its 80W fast-charging. Which takes less than 40 minutes to refill the 4,700mAh battery.
IQOO Neo 6 : What are the drawbacks
– The design lacks gaming phone appeal, there are no game-centric design features and in comparison, the Poco F3 GT looks far more compelling.
– No 3.5mm audio jack and no IP-rating The iQOO Neo 6 lacks a 3.5mm audio jack despite having a thick body with a large chassis.
– Secondary Camera The only good thing about the triple-lens camera system of the iQOO Neo 6 is its 64MP OIS-enabled primary camera. The other two sensors – 8MP wide-angle and 2MP macro sensor – disappoint.
Should you buy iQOO Neo 6?
– iQOO Neo 6 is a well packaged smartphone at a starting price of Rs 29,999. Despite some shortcomings. – The mid-range handset delivers day-to-day performance and lag-free gaming and brings a 120Hz AMOLED display to deliver an immersive multimedia experience.
From display to processor and 64MP primary camera to 80W fast charging attracts everyone.
I am not very happy with the design.
If you pay approx Rs. 30,000, then you can buy OnePlus Nord 2 5G (for better software experience), Samsung Galaxy M52 5G (better brand value), Vivo V23 5G (better cameras), Motorola Edge 30 (stock Android experience) You can also consider such options.
