Vivo T1 5g Is the Best Affordable Option Under 15000
In India, Realme and Redmi have the largest share of the sub-Rs 20K smartphone market, though that could change shortly. I say this because Vivo, a Chinese electronics titan, just introduced a new smartphone line aimed at luring budget-conscious shoppers to its storefronts. The Vivo T series, as the name suggests, prioritizes performance and aims to compete with the top mid-range smartphones on the market. The Vivo T1 5G is the first smartphone to have 5G, and it includes features such as a 120Hz screen, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 695 SoC, and more. Let’s take a deeper look at the phone to determine if it’s a good investment
The T1 5G, Vivo’s T series rookie, does a few things right and combines a sleek appearance with dependable performance. Despite the company’s admirable effort, the smartphone still has a lot of room for development. And would have been better served by a brighter screen and a more diversified camera stack.
The phone’s back is covered in a colorful gradient that shows changing colors of blue and orange depending on how the light hits it. In addition, the smartphone features a boxy form with a flat frame and a leveled back. The device’s square-off camera module makes it even more distinct, and everything. Vivo has done a commendable job with the design of its latest challenger.
The T1 5G’s plastic body isn’t immediately noticeable, which speaks much about the phone’s in-hand feel. The phone’s back has a smooth, velvety feel, and the handset’s blocky frame provides a secure hold in the hand. So much so that during my review period. I never felt the need to baby the phone and used it without a case. I’d also like to point out that, unlike the majority of phones in this price range, the T1 5G has a matte texture, which means the phone’s back resists smudges rather well.
A 6.58-inch FHD+ In-cell LCD display comes standard on the Vivo T1 5G. The panel has a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate, making it smooth and responsive enough to play high-octane games on the run. I like how Vivo lets you choose between 60Hz, 90Hz, and 120Hz for the display refresh rate, which allows you to extend your battery life even further if you’re running low on power.
The Vivo T1 5G has a triple camera arrangement on the rear, which includes a 50MP Samsung JN1 sensor, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth lens.
During the day, the T1 5G’s primary camera takes high-quality photos with plenty of detail in the frame. The camera’s color science, on the other hand, favors punchy, colorful tones, thus the shots are rarely exact representations of the scene.
Thankfully, the device does a good job of bringing out the shadows in the shot, and the sensor locks on to the focus swiftly.
There is no ultrawide angle or telephoto sensor on the Vivo T1 5G. Instead, the phone has a 2MP macro sensor that allows users to get extremely close to their subjects. In terms of video, the phone can capture footage in up to 1080p resolution at 30 or 60 frames per second.
Battery Life, Performance, and Software
The Snapdragon 695 processor powers the Vivo T1 5G, which also includes UFS 2.2 storage and LPDDR4x RAM.
On the software front, the smartphone runs a bespoke FunTouch OS v12 overlay on top of Android 12. Although most of the preloaded apps can be deleted, the interface is littered with bloatware. Aside from that, the UI is sleek and offers a plethora of customization options. Including a built-in theme store and a slew of the home screen and lock screen adjustments. The smartphone, however, does not allow third-party icon packs, which is a disappointment.
On the battery aspect, the Vivo T1 5G comes with a 5,000mAh battery that comfortably got me to the end of a long workday. Unfortunately, the phone comes with an 18W fast charger that takes a long time to fully charge the battery pack.
