Vivo T3 5G: Specs

The Vivo T3 5G gets a 6.6-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, 300Hz touch sampling rate, 394 ppi, HDR 10+ certification, and 1800 nits peak brightness. It is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 SoC, coupled with up to 12GB LPDDR4x RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage.

It is backed by a dual rear camera system, including a 50MP f/1.79 Sony IMX882 main sensor, a 2MP f/2.4 bokeh sensor. There’s also a flicker sensor on the back. On the front, it will get a 16MP f/2.45 selfie sensor.

Vivo T3 5G: Competitors

The Vivo T3 5G is competing with the iQOO Z9 5G despite being a highly similar phone. The differences between the two include a flicker sensor on Vivo’s device which iQOO’s Z9 lacks and a refreshed design. Aside from that, it is basically the same phone as iQOO Z9 at the same price point as well.

Aside from that, Vivo T3 5G is going against the Realme Narzo 70 Pro 5G which offers you a slightly better display which is brighter, faster charging speeds, an ultra-wide angle camera on the back, but gets an inferior Dimensity 7050 chipset. The Narzo 70 Pro 5G starts at the same price as Vivo T3 5G, and that is Rs 19,999.

There’s also the Lava Blaze Curve 5G which is priced lower at Rs 17,999 and lacks in the software and department. However, it gets you a curved display, faster and larger amount of RAM and storage for a cheaper price, along with an ultra-wide angle sensor on the back.

Considering the specs of the device, the Vivo T3 5G looks like a decent offering but you do have other options in the segment and some even cheaper which offer you a similar value. The decision whether to buy it or not boils down to your preferences, where you want raw power, or a better display that may also be curved and could be brighter, or maybe faster charging and an ultra-wide angle camera sensor on the back.
