On paper, the iQoo Z5 does not seem like a massive improvement over the previous model in this series, the iQoo Z3. There's no AMOLED display like on competing smartphones at around the Rs. 25,000 price point, and its cameras remain similar to what was offered on the Z3. However, its price is a bit higher – the base variant retails at Rs. 23,990. So is the new iQoo Z5 worth your money, or are there better smartphones out there that offer more for less? Let's find out.

iQOO Z5 Summary

The iQoo Z5’s starting price is higher than that of the Z3 (which it will soon replace) but competing smartphones in the mid-range are generally more competitive in terms of features. Its design has been slightly improved and it offers better grip, but is still made of plastic.

There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor that’s on par with the mid-range competition and performed well when gaming and even in our benchmark tests. There is a 6.67-inch LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, which works well while playing games, but becomes a smudgy mess very easily. The Z5 finally gets stereo speakers, which worked well both while watching movies or playing games.

Camera performance is decent in daylight but not great in low light. This does not make the Z5 look good, since it has to compete with mid-range smartphones that offer better photo quality as well as performance.

Battery life is excellent, though you do lose out a bit in terms of charging speed. The Z5 certainly does not feel like a solid step up over its predecessor. It does offer minor improvements, but not enough to make it easy to recommend given that competition offers much better at only slightly higher prices.
