Editor Rating

The Vivo iQOO 9T is the latest flagship offering from the popular Chinese brand, which features a unique design aesthetic and colour scheme. You get a sturdy glass body wrapped around an aluminium frame and a trimmed-down camera module that features a large glass protective covering. On the inside, you get the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor paired with ample RAM and storage. They have even included a special V1+ ISP chipset, which helps the cameras take advantage of an array of AI algorithms designed for improving photo and video capture.


Bottom Line

Vivo iQOO 9T is an amazing flagship smartphone from the brand, which features a unique design aesthetic and some of the most powerful components available on the market today. In fact, the only thing that will give you pause is the lack of wireless charging, even at this price point.
