The company brought iQOO Neo 6 to the market with flagship features and flabbergasting performance. The phone is equipped with powerful hardware such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC. The charging speed is much higher than what you get at this price. The performance of the phone is above expectations. Does it make iQOO Neo 6 worthy of buying? Does it actually look as it displays? Let’s check the good and bad about the handset in iQOO Neo 6 review.


The looks and the design of the phone is the foremost thing that attracts a customer. iQOO Neo 6 has impressive looks with the shimmery back panel and stays a little unique with its design & vibrant colours. Though the phone has got a plastic back, it still looks premium in hand. The plus point with the plastic back panel is durability compared to the glass back panel. Dark Nova and Cyber Rage are two attractive colours that come in a gradient finish, which changes colours at some angles.


In our iQOO Neo 6 review, we note that the phone has the most exemplary display at this price. It delivers bright colours and clear images, especially when watching movies, videos, and photos. All thanks to the HDR support that makes content looks better and visible even under direct sunlight. 

The iQOO Neo 6 features a 6.62 inches E4 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, similar to the iQOO 7 and iQOO 9 SE.

If you are into gaming, you will enjoy the touch sampling rate of 360Hz. Games like BGMI and Call of Duty are fun to play with an instant sampling rate of 1200Hz. According to our iQOO Neo 6 review, the phone handles everything without trouble. 


The iQOO Neo 6 has a great main and selfie camera. The phone is packed with a triple rear camera: 64 MP, 8 MP, and 2 MP that can capture colourful and pleasing photos. The iQOO Neo 6 cameras deliver detailed photos, especially when capturing the object from close. 

Talking about the iQOO Neo 6 specifications of the front camera, the phone features a 16 MP selfie camera set up, which captures accurate skin colour and object colour. 

If you are into videography,  iQOO Neo 6 can cater to your demands. You will notice that the handset possesses good video recording capabilities, rear and front. As per iQOO Neo 6 review, it can shoot 4K video up to 60fps.

Performance & Battery

According to iQOO Neo 6 specifications and features, the phone uses a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, which delivers consistent performance without slowing down. The 12 GB RAM allows users to multitask while running multiple apps in the background. You can seamlessly switch between the games and other apps without having to reload the app. 

While performing iQOO Neo 6 review, we found excellent battery life and fast charging. With only a 47oomAh battery, the phone can deliver longer shelf life. You will manage 6-7 hours on-screen time while listening to songs and performing other tasks. The phone can also deliver a battery life of up to 8 hours and 30 minutes with dim brightness and moderate use. 

This gets better with the 80W charging, which quickly charges your phone. 


iQOO Neo 6 price is quite fair as per the features and the performance. The 128 GB variant comes at INR 29,999, and if you want more storage, you need to spend a little more price, approximately INR 32 999. Though you can also manage with the 128 GB variant if you know tips and tricks to save space in your phone. So, if you are good at space management, we would suggest you go with the 128GB variant.
