iQOO 7 Review: Design and Build

As a design in the online market, there is no significant innovation in the phones, but in the case of iQOO 7, this cannot be said. The thickness of the device is 8.4mm and the weight is also less than 200 grams which is quite a good thing. You can call the phone a compact but powerful.

The curved edges give the phone a good grip. At the back you get a glass sack. Polycarbonate is used for the side frame and volume and power buttons are given the perfect place.

Along with these display fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone, you have also been given the feature of Fast Face Unlock.

You get to see a similar bezel around the display on the front side. There is also a punch hole cut-out on the top side. A pre-installed screen protector is also provided on the display. Overall, the iQOO 7’s design looks quite good as well as strong.

iQOO 7 review: display

For display, the company has used a very strong screen panel. There is a 6.62-inch FHD + resolution AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate.

The screen comes with HDR10 / HDR10 + support and 1300 nits maximum brightness. DRM L1 certification is also available in the phone, due to which you can easily stream 1080p content as well.

The phone also has the feature of DC Dimming which does not let your eyes get irritated when using the phone in low light.
