On January 11, 2021, the iQOO 7 series was released, on August 17, 2021, the iQOO 8 series was released, and on January 5, 2022, the iQOO 9 series was released.
Looking at this time, the release time between iQOO 7 and iQOO 8 is reasonable. About 7-8 months is the replacement cycle of domestic flagship phones. In contrast, the iQOO 9 series is a bit too fast, and the iQOO 8 series is a bit too fast. Only about 5 months apart, this cycle should be the replacement cycle of offline models.
The result is that the two mobile phones of the iQOO 8 and iQOO 9 series overlap in configuration and price, and the public is not clear about the choice of iQOO 8 or iQOO 9.
This year is different. The iQOO 10 is scheduled to be released on July 19, more than 7 months away from the previous generation, which not only raised the public’s expectations, but also gave the machine a more worthy of discussion. Design and product performance points.
While maintaining the consistent excellent performance configuration of iQOO mobile phones this time, the iQOO 10 series products continue to provide the track version and the legendary version on the Pro version, so that the appearance of the phone can be improved to a higher level. At the same time, for the first time The 200W fast charge that appeared in mass production on mobile phone products makes it the only one in the industry.
The model we received is the iQOO 10 Pro version, so everything below is based on this version. The specific configuration parameters of the iQOO 10 Pro are as follows:
The iQOO 10 series is the fifth mobile phone on the market equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 processor. Everyone is already familiar with this processor. Speaking of this, I suddenly think that iQOO mobile phones have always been crowded. Performance, but it seems that it has never grabbed the first launch of a certain processor. It is always in the top few. This kind of unhurried mentality is actually very good, it gives people the feeling that it is not impetuous and can put more The mind is stable on the product.
The running score of iQOO 10 Pro this time is 1103422 points, the CPU score is 259698, and the GPU score is 472177; in the storage test, the random read speed is 1967.6MB/s, and the random write speed is 1559.1MB/s. The total score It is 76146 points; the AI running score is 3113695 points.
After the Snapdragon 8+Gen1 processor was launched, several mobile phones that have been released so far can basically achieve a score of about 110W. It seems that everyone has made great efforts in this regard. For the invisible new machine, the running score is the only reference that can have a positive understanding.
The iQOO mobile phone has always been very strong in this regard. This time, the 110W running score was just run on the table after getting it. If you want to get a high score, try some methods or run a few more times and you should be able to get tens of thousands higher, but it will not affect the actual user experience.
On the outer box, iQOO continues to use its own irregular design for many years, which is highly recognizable and has a deep-rooted image in everyone’s heart. In addition to the iQOO logo on the box surface, there is also a global partner BMW. logo, how many partners drive BMW and then buy iQOO mobile phones?
In addition to the mobile phone body, the mobile phone box is also equipped with 200W charging head, data cable, water case and other accessories that must be added after purchasing a new phone. .
200W fast charging is the first mass-produced commercial use in mobile phone products, and it is also a breakthrough in the crazy increase in fast charging power of domestic mobile phones. When the mobile phone reaches 200W, it is basically the end, because even if the value increases, it can bring The actual benefit will not be too different. As for the charging speed and experience, we will discuss it in detail below.
The front of iQOO 10 Pro uses a 6.78-inch Samsung E 5 luminescent material AMOLED screen, 3200×1440 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, screen contrast: 8000000:1, screen brightness (typical value): 500nit, peak brightness 1000nit, support 100 % P3 wide color gamut, supports LTPO 3.0, and is equipped with a color temperature sensor.
In terms of screen parameters, the phone also uses ultrasonic 3D wide-area fingerprints. The fingerprint recognition area is 578mm², and it can be unlocked very quickly in 0.2s. It only takes 1 fit to complete the fingerprint entry. It also supports wet-hand unlocking, outdoor strong light unlocking, etc.
Ultrasonic 3D wide-area fingerprint is really a configuration that cannot be returned after use, so it is very strange why only vivo series mobile phones have this configuration so far, and I hope other brands can follow up quickly.
In terms of lens configuration, the iQOO 10 Pro is equipped with three lenses, which are:
Main camera: 50 million pixels, Samsung GN5, f/1.88 aperture, 1/1.57″ sensor size, 1µm unit pixel size, micro gimbal, 84° viewing angle
Ultra-wide-angle lens: 50 million pixels, Samsung JN1, f/2.27 aperture, 1/2.76″ sensor size, 0.64µm unit pixel size, 150° viewing angle
Telephoto portrait lens: 14.6 million pixels, f/2.2 aperture, 1/3.1” sensor size, 1µm unit pixel size, 34° viewing angle
With the telephoto, which is relatively scarce on mobile phones this year, the 150° ultra-wide-angle with high playability has been added. If the main camera is the familiar Samsung GN5, the quality is also good.
In addition to these hardware configurations, the prominent V1+ word on the right side of the phone lens indicates that the phone has finally added vivo’s self-developed chips, micro-cloud platform, V1+, this time iQOO 10 Pro is also very remarkable in terms of image configuration. .
In the design of the back shell of the mobile phone, the iQOO 10 Pro adopts the method of splicing up and down, which is somewhat similar to the previous OPPO Find X3 photographer version. The entire back shell of the mobile phone is made of plain leather and AG glass with a carbon fiber texture processor. It is divided into two parts, which have both feel and texture. The part where the two materials meet is officially named Horizon Waistline. The name is very artistic, but it depends on everyone whether it looks good or not. I like it.
The iQOO 10 Pro track version in our hands has a body thickness of 9.49mm and a weight of 215.4g, which is still quite heavy, but thanks to the addition of excellent plain leather material, it can be held well with one hand. However, I still hope that the mobile phone can be made as thin and light as possible, and it is better if the weight is less than 200g.
After the Snapdragon 8+Gen1 replaced TSMC’s 4nm process, it has performed well on several mobile phones that have been released, and the power consumption and heat have been significantly improved. This time, the experience brought by the iQOO mobile phone is the same as before. Excellent, after all, iQOO’s products have always been unambiguous in terms of performance stacking, and they also have their own unique secrets.
In the actual game experience, “Peace Elite” has a 30-minute game time, and the game quality selection does not support the 90-frame mode, so the selection is smooth + extreme, the performance mode is turned on inside the system, and Monster is selected. The power consumption of iQOO 10 Pro is 10%, the maximum temperature of the front screen of the mobile phone is 34.2°, the maximum temperature of the rear case is 32.7°, and the frame rate is stable at 60 frames without pressure.
In terms of temperature and frame rate, it is not surprising for a flagship machine equipped with a Snapdragon 8+Gen1 processor to have this performance. After all, the 60-frame mode is turned on, but this 10% power consumption is relative to the 60-frame image quality. If you eat chicken, it’s a bit high.
In another mobile phone performance “professional test” game “Genshin Impact”, the same 30 minutes of game time, the game picture quality is all turned on to the highest and 60 frames, the performance mode and frame insertion are turned on inside the system, and the power consumption of iQOO 10 Pro is 14 %, the maximum temperature of the front screen of the phone is 43.8°, and the maximum temperature of the rear case is 40.2°.
The performance of Genshin Impact can already be described as excellent. The temperature is normal for Snapdragon 8+Gen1 mobile phones, but only 14% of the power consumption is used for a game with 17% of the remaining power to start playing. In terms of large-scale games, it is not easy to keep the phone powered on and not automatically shut down after 30 minutes.
In terms of system heat dissipation, the iQOO 10 Pro has an area of 2802mm² of the VC soaking plate, focusing on optimized coverage for the charging IC and battery areas. In addition, an innovative low-temperature-sensing aviation aluminum middle frame, cloud temperature control sensors and a fit Three-dimensional graphite and other things that sound very high-end. In order to reduce the temperature of the Snapdragon, domestic mobile phone manufacturers have really accumulated a lot of things in the heat dissipation of mobile phones in recent years, which can be regarded as forced to gain experience.
Fourth, battery life and fast charging
Regarding battery life, the battery life of the game has been given in the third item of this article, and you can use it as a reference (Note: “Peace Elite” will follow up with 90 frames, and the power consumption will be different from the 60 frames we tested), In other daily use of mobile phones, the biggest power consumption scenario is video.
After 1 hour of movie playback, the battery consumption of iQOO 10 Pro dropped from 16% to 11%, the power consumption was 5%, the video brightness was adjusted to the highest, Dolby sound was turned on, and the test was performed in external mode.
For 30 minutes of Douyin playback, the battery consumption of iQOO 10 Pro is 4%, the brightness is also adjusted to the highest, and the power consumption is also normal.
Douyin and movies do not consume a lot of power for mobile phones. Every time we test, the results are single-digit percentages. Everyone has excellent control in this regard.
In terms of charging, the iQOO 10 Pro uses the industry’s first 200W fast charge, which means that mobile phone charging has officially entered the 10-minute era. The official said that in high-speed mode, it can be charged from 1% to 60% in as fast as 5 minutes. The 4700mAh large battery can be charged from 1% to 100% in as fast as 10 minutes. Of course, there are limits to such achievements. For example, to turn off other mobile phone services and functions except for calls, in high-speed mode and screen-off state, With the official standard charger of the product + data cable charging, and even control the environment and mobile phone temperature, etc., so we will definitely not test according to such standards, because it is meaningless, except for the manufacturer’s promotion, no one will In order to allow the phone to charge a few minutes faster and limit ourselves to this, we simply tested it according to our daily usage habits.
After actual measurement, when the remaining power is 1%, it can be charged to 57% in 5 minutes, 87% in 10 minutes, and it only takes 12 minutes to fully charge. This speed is already the fastest charging phone I have seen in the industry for so many years.
In the charging test, the data from Power-Z shows that the iQOO 10 Pro has a maximum power of up to173WLeft and right, even though the duration is very short, it feels amazing to watch the moment the numbers keep climbing.
Although the charging power is high, the 200W fast charging head that iQOO 10 Pro comes with is very small. This fast charging head with dual gallium nitride design weighs only 155g. In contrast, it is even stronger than many 120W fast charging heads. The head should be smaller, and the charging head interface is also a Type-C design. You only take this one when you go out, and you will have both your computer and mobile phone.
5. Take pictures
Imaging is also a focus of iQOO 10 Pro this time. Snapdragon 8+ teamed up with vivo’s high reputation self-developed chip V1+, which can be said to inherit the strength of vivo’s flagship mobile phone in imaging.
We will not repeat the configuration of the camera lens. The above has been very detailed. This time, the iQOO 10 Pro has a main camera, a 150° fisheye lens, and a 3X telephoto lens. The system is still relatively Practical, let’s look at the sample performance.
The GN5 lens of the main camera was installed on the previous generation of cameras. This time, it is naturally a step forward. After all, the previous generation of cameras did not have V1+.
As can be seen from the sample performance, the saturation of flowers, plants and trees has been significantly improved this time. The red looks more gorgeous and can be more pleasing to users. This saturation is coupled with the Samsung AMOLED screen. It will overflow the screen like jelly.
When shooting some large buildings, the edge parts are also well controlled, there is no picture distortion, and the look and feel is also inclined to please the eye. The day of shooting was cloudy, but you can see from the sample performance that the color is still is very showy.
The last time I experienced the 150° fisheye lens was on the Realme GT2 Pro. This lens belongs to the gameplay more than the practicality. It has unexpected effects when shooting some special scenes, or it is used to show/show off to friends. Official On the basis of 150°, it also brings four lens modes including fisheye, namely crystal ball, asteroid, fisheye and dreamland. I personally find the effect of dreamland more interesting, and it is also shown in the proofs. .
The iQOO 10 Pro has a 3X portrait telephoto lens that supports up to 40x zoom. The proofs of different focal lengths are as follows:
The effect of 5x zoom is remarkable, reaching a practical level, 20x is fine, it doesn’t look too blurry, and the highest 40x still has obvious smear marks, that is, it can be seen, the distance It can be used far away, but it is good to have a telephoto lens. After all, there is a lack of telephoto lenses on mobile phones this year.
The selection of night scenes This time, we no longer choose extreme dark light environments. After all, according to the usage habits of most people, there will be more desire to pick up mobile phones to take pictures in brightly lit places.
It can be seen from the sample performance that the iQOO 10 Pro can perform well in the face of complex outdoor light, and the purity of the picture is also very good. Zoom in to see that the edge details of some objects are not smeared or disappeared. , the overall sense is also relatively high, you should be able to experience the lively situation in the night scene environment when you look at these proofs.
Another point is that the overall photography and framing of this time are mainly based on reality, so that what is taken is what it is.
Because we didn’t receive the iQOO 9 series machine last time, there is no comparable option in the proofs. From the performance of the iQOO 10 Pro this time, although the main camera of Samsung GN5 is not used much, But the performance is still no problem, and after adding the V1+ self-developed chip, the texture of the picture has also been significantly improved.
In addition, here is a more interesting and relevant imaging function, that is, the micro video that comes with the camera. Now is the era of short video, everyone knows that even a map should be put on a 10-second image. In terms of video, although I personally don’t like it, what can I do.
The micro-movie function that comes with iQOO 10 Pro this time can teach you to shoot a micro-movie in a very intuitive and obvious way. You can just follow the example on the side while shooting. The one that was fed to my mouth, I also recorded one when I took the proof of the night scene, and found that the effect is not bad, the border letters and BGM are directly matched, and the playability is quite high.
For me, I always feel that iQOO only needs to update the digital series flagship after more than four months last year. After all, no one wants to buy a flagship machine for more than four months before it becomes obsolete. Even if their configuration is not much different, the change in the number of people’s mentality is very obvious.
This time, the iQOO 10 series has done a better job, which has met the expectations of users, making everyone feel that it is worthy of 7 months of polishing in terms of time, and it has also better attracted the attention of the market.
In the actual test, the improvement of iQOO 10 Pro is also very obvious to me, not to mention the feel of the body, organic plain leather is the high-end material of the new flagship machine, this must be, the AG glass is made of carbon fiber texture It is rare in the market, coupled with the only 200W ultra-fast flash charge currently available, these features make the iQOO 10 Pro full of self-characteristics, and also allow it to occupy a part of its own exclusive user group in the current fierce mobile phone market.
