iQOO Z5 vs iQOO Z3 -What’s the Difference?

Which One Should You Buy?

After months of speculating, iQOO finally announced its new phone IQOO Z5 in China.

Successor to iQOO Z3‘s successor, the iQOO Z5 features a larger 6.67-inch FHD+ IPS LCD with support for 120Hz refresh rate. iQOO has ditched the teardrop notch found on the Z3 for a hole-punch cutout for its 16MP selfie camera on the Z5.

In terms of processing power, the iQOO Z5 has a newer Snapdragon 778G 5G SoC instead of the 768G 5G found on the Z3. The Snapdragon 778G 5G is built on the 6nm process, which offers 5% faster performance than the older 768G 5G while offering support for faster RAM up to 3200MHz.

The Z5 comes in two variations with 8GB RAM+128/256GB Storage or 12GB RAM+256GB Storage, while the Z3 ships with 6/8GB RAM+128 Storage or 6/8GB RAM+256GB Storage.

However, the camera on the Z5 is not upgraded at all and features the same triple camera setup found on the Z3 with a 64MP main Samsung GW3 sensor along with an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro module. The Z5 has a slightly larger yet better-looking camera bump than the Z3.

While in terms of the battery, the iQOO Z5 has a 5,000 mAh lithium-ion battery, which is exactly 600mAh larger than the battery found in its predecessor. However, iQOO has limited the charging speed of the device to 44W instead of the 55W found on the Z3.

When it comes to security the, iQOO Z5 has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner which was not present on the Z3.

This time with the release of the iQOO Z5 you might get more color choices if all of them are released in India, including White, Dark Blue, and Gradient Blue colors. The latter has a ridged back pattern, while the other two feature a flat dynamic color finish. However, the iQOO Z3 only came in two colors in India, Ace Black and Cyber Blue with no texture.

And in terms of pricing, the base variant of Z5 with 8GB RAM+128GB Storage is priced at Yuan 1899 (approx. Rs 21,600). While the 8GB RAM+256GB Storage variant is priced at Yuan 2099 (approx. Rs 24,000). The 12GB RAM+256GB Storage variant is priced at Yuan 2299 (approx Rs 28,600). Vs the highest spec Z3 with 8GB RAM+256GB Storage costs around 23,000 Rs.
