0

iQOO once again served as a pioneer of 5G popularity but will look from the original high-priced flagship phone to the vast number of users favored by the thousand-dollar phone, Vivo iQOO Z1x is a standard 5G full-network pass dual-mode mobile phone, starting at only 1598 yuan.

For the second aspect, to meet the needs of the market and users, mobile phone manufacturers continue to high brush and continue to work hard. Embarrassingly, however, the excellent battery life and the high refresh rate screen are difficult to coexist, and many models are just one of the advantages of their own.

iQOO Z1x is to package all of these features, not only will be equipped with a 5000mAh high-capacity battery, but also support 120Hz high refresh rate screen, can be a long-range and high brush as a whole, and iQOO Z1x is not only a simple increase in the phone’s battery capacity but also equipped with a 33W flash charging scheme.

This time, come and experience the iQOO Z1x and see if it is good enough as a 5G phone, as a 5G phone, while other aspects of it provide a good configuration. Before we begin today’s review, let’s take a look at the configuration parameters of iQOO Z1x.

Design

At present, iQOO Z1x has sea azure, sharp cool black, sequoia white three color schemes, we get is one of the sea azure. The iQOO Z1x features a full-punch screen of a 6.57-inch LCD with a resolution of 2408 x 1080. The high refresh rate of 120Hz makes it particularly prominent in its same price range. Perhaps it is also in pursuit of a 120Hz refresh rate, only to choose the LCD screen.

LCD changes the brightness of red, green, and blue sub-pixels by independently controlling the current of each LCD cell, making it easier to achieve a high refresh rate than AMOLED screens. The iQOO Z1x is 164.20 x 76.50 x 9.06mm and weighs 199.5g.

Sea azure color matching enables a color gradient effect on the back of the body that changes with angle. the iQOO Z1x uses a three-camera arrangement, with the entire camera module in the “matrix” in the upper left corner. As I just said, the iQOO Z1z uses an LCD screen, so it’s impossible to place under-screen fingerprints, thus using a capacitive side fingerprint unlock design, and a power key and fingerprint unlock two and one design. The iQOO Z1x retains the 3.5mm headphone connector for the user, so the design greatly facilitates the sound experience in the game playing process, allowing the headset to plug in directly, reducing latency. Up to 33W fast-charged chargers are supported.

iQOO Z1x Display

Entering 2020 the main high refresh rate of the screen is not uncommon, but most of the models equipped with 90Hz, with iQOO Z1x positioning models are not lacking in 60Hz models. With a high refresh rate of 120Hz, the screen shows more smoothness, and the Caton feel is wiped out. It’s worth noting that the iQOO Z1x currently supports a variety of high refresh rate screen modes at 60Hz, 90Hz, and 120Hz for custom selection.

Of course, this screen is not just the main 144Hz refresh rate this one, Vivo iQOO Z1x uses LTM (Local Tone Mapping) local color mapping technology, will display content is divided into multiple areas, each area according to the ambient light and corresponding display content, dynamically adjust the display area contrast.

When the outdoor environment light changes, effectively inhibit the high-gloss area overexposure, the dark detail optimization processing, enhance the clarity. Effect transitions in a limited time, the human eye does not capture instantaneous changes, and the visual experience is smoother. Improves visibility while preserving the high contrast of the content. The visual experience of games, videos, and pictures is better in the outdoor bright light.

In terms of display, Vivo has done quite a bit of software play, which supports image repair function, which can be manually or automatically marked the location of defects in the old photo, combined with the image repair model, as well as the color, texture, and structure of the non-damaged area of the photo, to achieve the synthesis of defect location information.

With image enhancement technology, the quality of older photos with poor original quality (e.g. blurry, low-definition) is enhanced. This includes image de-noise, de-blurring, image super-resolution reconstruction, and so on. The super-resolution reconstruction completes the transformation of the image from low resolution to high resolution and enhances the image quality.

For a clearer and more vivid game picture, Vivo iQOO Z1x also adds Hawkeye display enhancement technology to achieve display enhancement without compromising picture quality through increased saturation, memory color protection, adjustable detail sharpening multiple latitudes of display adjustment.

iQOO Z1x Hardware & Performance

According to Master Lu’s evaluation system, the iQOO Z1x, which is equipped with the Snapdragon 765G, has a running score of about the same as the current class of Snapdragon 845 models.

Geekbench

Geekbench is a cross-platform CPU evaluation software that accurately evaluates CPU’s single-core performance, multicore performance, daily load, and more. The GPU’s computing power can also be evaluated.

In terms of the CPU of the Snapdragon 765G, Kryo475 has the same architecture as the Snapdragon 855. With an eight-core Kryo475 processor, a three-plex architecture of 1-plus-six. Configure a 2.4GHz super core, a 2.2GHz performance core, and six 1.8GHz efficiency cores.

In the evaluation system of Geekbench, the single-core score of the Snapdragon 765G is better than the year’s Snapdragon 845 (single-core score of about 514, the multi-core score of about 2133), multi-core results compared to the latter is worse, the overall seems to have been comparable.

GFXBench test

Introduction to GFXBench: Cross-platform, cross-API 3D benchmarking software that accurately reflects the graphics performance of the device GPU. Multiple test scenarios that fully examine the device’s OpenGL ES graphics performance and can be tested for battery life.

GFXBench provides two test comparisons, OnScreen and OffScreen. When the screen runs the test at the device screen’s native resolution, it is unified to 1080p resolution, making it easy to compare across devices.

There are six main test projects: T-Rex, Manhattan 3.0, Manhattan 3.1, Car Chase, respectively, corresponding to the performance of OpenGL ES 2.0/3.0/3.1/3.1, as well as the newly added Aztec Ruins Vulkan off-screen, Aztec Ruins OpenGL off-screen, the test pressure is getting higher and higher, the result is measured by the average frame rate (FPS).

The Snapdragon 765G graphics processor uses the Adreno 620, thanks to the same architecture as the Dragon 865, the Snapdragon 765G compared to the Snapdragon 730 graphics performance improvement of nearly 40%. In the Manhattan 3.0 off-screen test, the Snapdragon 765G was 38% higher than the Snapdragon 730. In Manhattan’s 3.1 off-screen test, it was up 35 percent. In the heavier Car Chase off-screen test, the Snapdragon 765G improved by 34%.

Androbench test

In terms of network speed, we use the mainstream Speedtest software for testing, we need to mention that when we are evaluating iQOO Z1x, we get the engineering machine, in addition to the system version is also different from the official lying model, taking into account the construction progress of operators around the difference, so the final measure of 5G network speed and everyone to hand-measured results may be different.

In our test environment, iQOO Z1x has a 5G network download rate of 9.6 times that of a 4G network and 5.6 times the upload rate.

In such a 5G network environment, the download of the app can do click immediately after the effect of reading the progress bar, the page open also basically does not exist load time, click to open the page. Feel free to pull the 1080P online video progress bar, in the 5G network environment can hardly see any buffer, the basic moment can continue to play.

Battery

the iQOO Z1x features a large 5000mAh battery to match the Snapdragon 765G, which itself excels in energy consumption and is quite desirable for its battery life.

Although iQOO Z1x provides the option to manually tune to 60Hz screen refresh rate to improve battery life, one of the highlights of the machine is this screen, the user is also rushing to this point, so the next battery test author simulates the default use of most users – intelligent switching screen refresh rate, while turning on Wi-Fi, the mobile signal in 5G network environment for testing.

Online video power-consuming records.

The use of beep software to play 1080P online video, 70% brightness, 30% volume, get the power consumption statistics record, it can be estimated that iQOO Z1x in this condition of the pursuit of the game in about 6.2 hours.

The Vivo Z1x is a 33W fast charge for a high-capacity battery at 5000 mAh, and the measured 40 minutes from 46% to 98%, so that even returning blood from 0, the battery won’t be fully charged for more than 80 minutes (the top 50% will be faster than the last 50%).

iQOO Z1x Cameras

The iQOO Z1x rear 48-megapixel main camera, 2MP-image virtual camera, and 2-megapixel macro lens support Hyper-HDR super-backlit shooting, AI eye focus, front-facing super night view and more. Such a scheme, although with the top flagship of their own there is a certain gap, still can meet the daily needs of photography.

iQOO Z1x Verdict

In the 4G era, the Vivo Z series has always had “charged” power models, such as the Vivo Z5i and Vivo Z5X for the 5000 mAh battery, but now the service’s task for long-haul users seems to be on iQOO.

It is not difficult to understand, iQOO as a Vivo sub-brand was launched, has been the main “true fragrance” route. The first model, Vivo iQOO Z1, which was released a few days ago with the MediaTek Tianyi 1000 Plus 5G platform, uses a 144Hz e-race screen, a 4500mAh high-capacity battery, plus a price tag of 2198 yuan to let users see what is called a price-performance ratio.

It is not difficult to see from the name, Vivo iQOO Z1x positioning is like iQOO Z1″, slightly lower in positioning than iQOO Z1, but the overall design and the core configuration of the parts are very close, with 120Hz screen with 5000 mAh large battery and Snapdragon 765G in the sub-flagship camp to establish a foothold.

For such a model, there is no need to demand the ultimate image experience, but after the test, with the 48-megapixel main camera as the core of the imaging system although simple, but enough to meet the daily needs, even in the dark light environment can be shot clear things.

And in terms of battery life, iQOO Z1x is not just a simple increase in the phone’s battery capacity, but also equipped with a 33W flash charging program, can allow the phone to quickly return blood, 40 minutes from 46% to 98%, so that 5000 mAh of the huge battery without the slow charging concerns,

Although 5G is fast, 5G is strong, 5G is stable, but for the average user, 5G package and 5G phone prices are the biggest obstacle stymied to their access to 5G. To make 5G truly universal, to achieve a wider coverage, the introduction of a price-effective 5G phone is imperative.

And Vivo iQOO Z1X is a thousand-dollar machine that is positioned like this. Based on 1598 yuan very attractive pricing, it provides a 120Hz high refresh rate screen, a powerful processor, as well as charging treasure-class power and comparable to the flagship fast charge, many features combined, perfectly in line with our psychological expectations for 5G thousand-dollar machine.
