Vivo X80 Pro Is Available With Good Camera & Features
In tech jargon, the term Vivo X80 pro has become so muddled that everything has just become pro. Any flagship comes with a pro suffix, whether or not the features are justified. It has also become one of the most overused terms in the last five years or so.
With its new iteration, the vivo X80 Pro price, Vivo, like many others, fails to live up to the pro moniker. Although the phone has more features than phones in other categories, it does not justify the pro label. However, what you and I consider to be a pro can be highly subjective.
The camera bump is the first thing that will draw a person’s attention to this device. The phone, which takes up nearly a third of the space, has a distinct appearance. The back panel has a nice feel to it, and the textured finish on the back cover gives it a premium appearance.
The phone does not skid on surfaces, despite being a little wobbly. The volume and power buttons are conveniently located on the side, and there is a hole-punch camera on the front. However, there are ergonomic issues. The phone is too heavy and isn’t balanced as well as you’d like it to be.
Vivo x80pro has outdone itself in this department. Vivo doesn’t disappoint, with a peak brightness of 1,500 nits. The 6.8-inch display has excellent viewing angles and black levels. The screen works well even in direct sunlight. It also shines in low-light situations. Vivo would have been ideal for watching movies if it hadn’t been for its weight. Even though the refresh rate was 120Hz, it wasn’t as smooth as you’d expect from a Samsung.
The bezels are barely visible, and the hole-punch camera, like most phones, fades into the background after a while. The night light feature was one issue that was very common across platforms. Even though it was hot outside, it was very bright for my comfort.
The camera setup is yet another area where Vivo has excelled. The camera setup is one of the best in the category, with high pixel density lenses on the back and a 32-MP lens on the front. The telephoto lens performed admirably, with very few pixelation issues. Vivo offers a few standard beautification modes that, when turned off, result in a vibrant and clear image.
The colors are as close to a likeness as possible, and the phone performs even better with clearer colors when Zeiss mode is enabled. The video recording capability is still inferior to that of competitors in the category. Even though the cinematic mode provided more, it fell short of expectations.
Even with medium to heavy use and GPS, the 4700mAh battery provided enough juice for the phone to last over 14 hours, but not the two-day battery life one might expect. The battery can last up to 18 hours with light and medium use, but that would be pushing it. However, when compared to other Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processors, the battery drain was not as bad.
Performance and UX
To some extent, Vivo has been able to resolve the heating issues associated with Snapdragon chips. After 45 minutes of gameplay, the phone begins to heat up. Regular functions, on the other hand, did not cause it to overheat. The phone was not up to par in terms of performance. Bloatware was a major issue.
The phone did not perform well at its peak, despite the 12 GB RAM and increased clocking speed. The operating system is complicated and difficult to use. At the top of the line, Vivo requires a better operating system.
Imagine paying Rs 80,000 for a phone and then spending a day deleting all the apps you don’t use, only to be confronted with an overabundance of native apps. When someone pays that much for a phone, they expect a simple interface, which Vivo has failed to deliver. It would require a strong key differentiator to break into the premium market.
