Is 200W charging power too much? No, it’s just right for some of the voters in last week’s poll. However, the iQOO 10 Pro has problems of a different nature – availability. That same issue extends to the vanilla iQOO 10 as well.
iQOO is more of a regional brand, its products are available mainly in China and India, leaving out a lot of potential buyers. Parent vivo is certainly not a regional brand, so it can spread iQOO out to new regions if it wanted to, but that is not the strategy it has chosen.
However, this means that even though nearly half of voters are interested in the iQOO 10 Pro, a huge portion of them falls outside of iQOO’s coverage.
That said, the 10 Pro has a lot to offer at a reasonable price, so it will find a bigger audience if it (or a vivo phone very much like it) expands to new markets. As for the 200W charging, some said it is too much, but others counter that it is okay as long as there are settings to limit the power when you’re not in a hurry.
The iQOO 10 was not as attractive as the Pro, only around 1 in 3 voters showed interest. But we run into the same problem again – the majority of voters are not in a market served by iQOO, so they can’t get one.
Of course, that won’t matter if the iQOO 10 series performs well in the brand’s chosen markets. The brand reached 25 million users last years and a small batch of iQOO 9 units sold out in seconds, so it seems to be doing okay.
