The rq7 builds on this with even more power under the hood and shifts away from its gaming routes to a more supercar aesthetic. I have the bmw motorsports edition of the iq7, which has only been seen in the pro version of its predecessor, and it suits the phone just right, especially with that wonderful massive 120 watt charger in the box, and it comes in at a whopping low, 650 usd 60 dollars cheaper if you’re willing to go for the 8 gig of ram variant, that’s, pretty much everything in the box let’s go ahead and give this guy an unwrapping Music. This is the legend white’s bmw edition. You can also pick it up in latent blue or black mirror. I think that this white glass at the back, which is indeed frosted it is gorilla, glass, 6, looks absolutely phenomenal, especially with those pinstripe lines going down the right hand side. We have a four thousand milliamp hour battery 120 watt, flash charging, no wireless charging, unfortunately no ips certification, but we do have 5g packed in here. It is kitted with gorilla glass, 6 in the front and the back, and we do have an aluminum frame when it comes to your fingerprint smudges it’s, pretty much impossible to see off the bat. So you don’t really need to use a cover, especially with that little tiny camera bump at the back. And if you do decide to slap on the included cover, it is a hard shell case.
It looks absolutely fantastic and adds even more branding to the back really highlighting that bmw, motorsport partnership, here’s a close up, look and moving on to the textured power button and non split textured volume, rocker that’s, always nice to see we have an indents at the top Nice and clean left hand side. We do have a dual sim card slot at the bottom of the phone. Unfortunately, no expandable storage option. Here we have usb type c at the bottom. Unfortunately, 2.0 transfer speeds and we do have a dual speaker system. It actually says dual speakers at the bottom, which is kind of funny. I guess, and that minimalistic camera bump is definitely smaller than the competition out there, especially for the likes of that wonderfully massive note. 20, ultra camera bump, and even that new s21 as well, makes for some minimal wobble when on a flat surface and looking at the back design, i could safely say this looks like a 2021 flagship for sure. I really like the white on the back it’s, not too glossy it’s, not too pearly it’s, just right, it’s, nice and frosted, like i said those three pinstripes on the back just add some extra flair. But what about the front? Well, we are kitted with a 20 by 9 aspect, ratio 6.62 inch, amoled display it is full hd, plus, with a ppi of ‘7.5, we do have 120 hertz refresh rates. Vivo claims, a thousand hertz instant touch sampling rate, whatever that is 300 hertz touch.
Sampling rates is what i think it actually is at here’s the screen. It looks phenomenal even when paired up against way more expensive phones out here. I guess the most similarly priced phone is the recently released xiaomi mi 11, with the same snapdragon 888 chipset that you see within the vivo iq seven over here. The colors really do pop and it is really really bright at a thousand three hundred and its peak brightness over here, and it actually does show compared to even the note 20 ultra next to it. On the right hand, side there, it has a nice little hole for the camera in the front over there, nice and centered, and of course, we have 120 hertz refresh rate panel and opposed to the 90 hertz on the huawei and 60hz on the iphone. I think 90hz is pretty much the sweet spot, but you definitely feel the difference between 90 or 120 compared to the 60 hertz iphone 12 pro max on the right hand, side over there. Moving away from that, we do have something called smart switch when it comes to refresh rate, which is a variable refresh rate jumping between 30 60, 90 and 120 for better battery life. So that’s always an option. If you want to maximize that four thousand milliamp hour battery, we do have dark mode which can dim the wallpaper in the background, which is great and we can change different sets of the dark mode.
I guess you could say different shades, lighter or darker, which is neat, and it does work in third party apps, you can’t choose which ones it just works. I guess, and we have an always on display something new here for vivo. Well, new customization options. I guess you could say we have seen an on display before we have a sensory clock which actually changes over time, which is pretty neat. But i do like the standard origin os one over here. It’S really nicely themed and it gives a little nice aesthetic when you decide to lock your phone, but before you can go into the phone and use all the wonderful features. Origin os has to offer vivo, says: screw apple, screw the environment we’re, going to throw 120 watt charging block in the box with loads of plastic, so that you can charge your phone up from zero to 100 in 15 minutes. That is what is advertised anyway. We do have an optimized battery charging option if you’d like to charge it slower to preserve battery life over time i’m going to do it the fastest possible here using the flash charge. 120 watt block five minutes 37. That is absolutely mental. I’Ve never seen anything like it, 50 in just six minutes. This is ridiculous. You literally go to the bathroom, have a little leak and you’re back, and your phone is fully juiced up. 10 minutes 81. Have you ever the me? 10, ultra did 120 watt 500 milliamp hour battery zero to 131 minutes.
This has done it in its advertised time of 15 minutes with the xiaomi mi, 10 ultra, so advertise time is 23 minutes and it did in 31 minutes. This is on point with its advertised time, even with it being on airplane mode, set automatic brightness, 100 15 minutes. It does have a smaller battery than the me10 ultra, though that is the only other phone i’ve tested on my channel with 120 watt charging, and this absolutely leaves it in the dust. Moving on to that wonderful in display fingerprint sensor. Vivo was indeed the first smartphone to mass produce this technology within a phone, and we do have a couple different animation options. We have the actual animation on top of the phone when it is locked, and you can also change it when you actually go into the phone, which is pretty neat and you can completely disable it as well, which is what i prefer, because i don’t really like. Animations when it comes to fingerprint sensors – and it makes it even snappier, comparing it to the huawei mate 40 pro’s optical fingerprint sensor – it is definitely quicker than that – one comparing to the mi 11 faster than that one too, compared to the ultrasonic sensor, underneath the samsung Galaxy note 20 ultra pretty much on par and compared to the 3d facial recognition on the iphone. Of course, it streaks ahead of that we do have unsecure 2d face unlock, that is on the vivo iq 7 over here we have some animations, though it’s kind of off sensor.
So it looks a bit strange and comparing the facial recognition to other smartphones with unsecure it’s, definitely a bit quicker than those a hell of a lot quicker than the samsung galaxy. Note. 20. Ultra, though the iphone has secure 3d facial recognition, as well as the huawei. So it’s impressive that they can still unlock fast and it is secure where the iq7 is not secure at all, though that selfie cam can be used for more than just facial recognition. We do have a 16 megapixel selfie snapper. It looks absolutely phenomenal over here, even with bokeh effect, pretty much no edge detection whatsoever. This is tech neck recording, a 1080p 30 fps video using the vivo iq7 selfie cam. The selfie video recording is completely capped at 30, fps and 1080p. Let me know what you guys: think of the audio and video quality when using the selfie cam to record video on the vivo iq7 at the back is where this phone truly shines. We have a 48 megapixel sony, imx 598 custom sensor by vivo, with an aperture of f 1.79, and we have optical image stabilization. We have a 13 megapixel ultra wide and a 13 megapixel portrait telephoto, which can go all the way up to two times: optical zoom here’s, the ultra wide shot a little bit of a purple effect on the right, they’re, not quite sure, what’s happening with that. The 48 megapixel main looks great four to one bin down to 12 megapixel.
Using that main 48 looks absolutely fantastic. Two times optical zoom looks great five times. You can see it’s kind of dipping in quality here, but still better than other smartphones. At this price point ten times, zoom still looks usable 20 times. Zoom is the max. It is digital honestly, i can still see what’s going on here: 12 megapixel main 41 bend natural bokeh and then shooting over to the portrait mode using that portrait telephoto doesn’t. Look quite as good as the natural bokeh. We do have a macro mode, no macro sensor. Here it utilizes the ultrawide sensor, looks pretty great. We have 4k 60 frames per second plus optical image, stabilization using the main cam. It is nice and stable, packed with detail. Same with 1080p 60fps ois looks really great a lot of smartphones at this price point can’t quite hit 60 fps at 4k. This does it absolutely fantastic. The downside with this, though, is that we’re capped at 30fps 1080p when it comes to ultrawide nothing more than that. No 4k, no 60fps, which really sucks ultra stable author via ultra stable on, is utilized using 1080p 60fps, nothing more than that it kind of dips in detail, but we do have origin os version one and oh, my goodness, it is absolutely amazing. It is skinned over android 11 and look at the screen. I mean first things. First, when you look at this, you think ios. It looks just like an apple device, but there are some kinks that it has going for it.
If you prefer your android experience, you can travel to a parallel world which you have to set up separately by the way, and you have a typical, pretty much stock like android experience can shoot back into origin os’s custom mode over here, and you can get the Best of both it does things phenomenally well when it comes to multitasking floating windows, all that jazz, that you’ve come to know and love on androids. You can even save multitasking, apps and pop them on your home screen as an individual, icon and jump into it later. Can also have a bigger view of your recent tabs and all these widgets really do come to life. You can always change the size of pretty much every single one. Only some of them are interactive though, but it still looks great. We do have core components over here which are those widgets. Unfortunately, most of them are in chinese and we can change the back window style. We can even have the sky at the top there, which is actually in relation to the weather and a time function which tells you what time of day it is based on where the sun is currently positioned, very innovative over here, pretty much. What bmw does with the motorsport vehicles? We have gestures from the bottom from the right from the top. There are just way too many features to go through i’m telling you just a handful of here. You can even change the colors of your notification tray pulling down and there is even a noise.
It makes when you remove an app icon from the home screen other than that we can split core components and we can join them with other core components. We also have lens, which is shortcuts pretty much to different camera options. We can change our refresh rate on the fly as well as different performance modes, and we even have touchscreen animations with particle quality. It looks pretty unusual something new. I guess. Let me know in the comment section down below what you guys think there is dynamic effects of pretty much every single thing that you could do with the smartphone when it comes to going into your home screen once being locked from charging animations to even plugging your Usb in and you can even change the wallpaper so that it changes with the amount of steps that you take in a day. Rest assured there is google services rooted into the settings and you can just download an apk google play store and for those of you who live abroad, and you need to translate some applications – fear not vivo. Has you covered here with wonderful jovi translates haptics actually feel absolutely great. We do have super audio software, boosting those dual speakers. Let’S have a listen, light’s coming handy talking about performance over here we do have a snapdragon, 888 processing chip and we have 12 gigs of ram, and it even says it can take three gigs of ram from the phone storage in case your storage gets too high.
Why don’t more phones do this well it’s, because your ufs 3.1 storage is a hell of a lot slower than the lp ddr5 ram that you get packed within the device. It’S, like taking a starter drive on your pc and using it as ram it’s, just not feasible. We have hi fi options because we have an included dac within the phone whenever you pop in some earphones, and we do have screen overlay of some sorts when it comes to gaming. If you are into that kind of thing, the best thing here is the eagle eye vision which pretty much pops the game brightens it up even past the brightest setting of the phone. I usually use game bench here to run an fps overlay, but it kept crashing. It did the same thing with the mi 11, so it must be a snapdragon 888 compatibility issue in the developer options. You can show your current fps. It is not real time, though it just shows what that game, or whatever you’re doing, is capable of pubg mobile, hdr, graphics, extreme fps, we’re, hitting 60 fps i’m, not sure if it’s, stable or not because, like i said, it’s, not a real time. Fps cancer, like i’ve, done in the past, but it gives you an idea of what you’re currently seeing if we’re in a low mode, that 60 would change to 40. with dead trigger 2. We can go all the way up to 120 fps in settings.
Ultra high graphics, but for some reason, it’s capping it at 60. Well, that’s, what the fps overlay at the top left says: i’m. Not quite sure, it feels really smooth fluid looks absolutely fantastic with that eagle vision mode. Real racing 3 has no fps cap we’re getting 120 fps, as you can see on the top left. Once again, not quite sure, if it’s stable or not, hopefully i get to use game bench pro going forward to test out the fps properly, but now it’s time to test out its performance when it comes to benchmarks that snapdragon 888 is no slouch. We have monster mode and ultra game mode over here to boots going into our first benchmark, which is antutu, then we’ll jump into geekbench and last but not least, we’ll jump into 3dmark wildlife mashing through antutu benchmark over here 30 milliamp hour per minute drain, which is Better than the mi 11 that i tested out not too long ago, the battery temps actually increased by 10.8 degrees celsius, which is less than the m11, and the cpu increase of 11 degrees is less than the mi 11’s 14.. The final score hundred and twenty nine thousand seven hundred and seven points for the iq7, which trumps all the phones below it. Moving on to geekbench 5.2.5, using the same ultra game mode and monster mode, we got a single core score of one one: four, four and multi core of three 720, which is still quite a bit off the iphone 12 pro max slightly higher than that of the Me 11.
last benchmark over here: 3dmark wildlife version 2.1.4. Speeding. Through this we got an fps of 34.3 and a score of 5734. The iq7 truly feels like the fastest smartphone on the planet in 2021. Right now certainly looks the part with this. Bmw. Aesthetic takes great pictures for the phone of this caliber, especially focusing on performance and fast charging. It does a great job all round i’m, particularly interested at seeing what it can do in the battery department, so stay tuned for a battery drain test. The software of origin os is absolutely phenomenal. I’Ve, never seen anything quite like it. I was overwhelmed when i first started using it, but i’m really really enjoying it. 120Hz doesn’t hurt and, of course it does translate into some games. I’M sure we’ll get more support going forward. That screen looks absolutely gorgeous super bright at 1, 300 nits, and there are competitors out there. However, the xiaomi mi 11 is pretty similarly priced with slightly better camera system. The huawei is more than double the price, as well as the iphone 12 pro max and the samsung galaxy note. 20 ultra. Of course we are missing an ip certification on the iq7 as well as wireless charging, but other than that. This is probably my favorite phone.
