The performance of a smartphone can be calculated in 2 ways, one with benchmarks and the other way to do so is by testing games and multiple applications on the device. We tried both these things on the smartphone, and here are the results.
Coming to the gaming performance, we ran multiple games on the device, including popular games like BGMI and Asphalt. In BGMI, the phone supports Ultra HD+ Ultra settings, but the performance is much better when played on HDR + Extreme settings. The in-game graphics look very vibrant, and does not make the game slow or laggy. The haptics make the game more immersive to play, and makes it real for the users.
Coming to Asphalt, the game ran smoothly on the phone. The game is not as heavy as BGMI, but is still a popular game. Playing the game continuously did not make the phone warm, and the battery also did not drain much. The battery performance of the phone flares well and battery will not be a challenge while playing games or even in day-to-day tasks.
The performance of iQOO 9 Pro matches the flagships in the market. Additionally, the UFS 3.1 storage makes multitasking easier and smooth. Users can run multiple apps at the same time without compromising on the data or the progress.
