Vivo X80 Pro: It may be too soon to say for sure whether Vivo’s X80 Pro will ever raise the bar for mobile photography, but the company is back with another flagship device that aims to do so.
Vivo X80 Pro: Price
X80 Pro Plus by Vivo The Vivo X80 Pro Plus is expected to have a starting price between $800 and $900.
It features Android 12, a 6.78-inch LTPO2 AMOLED display, a Qualcomm SM8450 Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (4 nm) chipset, a quad rear camera, and a 44MP selfie camera, as well as 8GB, 12GB, 256GB, or 512GB of internal storage.
The Vivo X80 Pro has the same premium Android flagship appearance from the front as any other device. It is large in size due to the 6.78-inch screen, which has sloping, curving sides and a selfie camera in the center with a punch-hole.
Although it is not the tiniest phone available, at 9.1mm, it nevertheless feels incredibly slim thanks to its rounded sides. In the same vein, while it weighs 219g, most phones of this size are still a touch heavier than average.
The Schott Xensation Up scratch-resistant glass atop the display and the Fluorite AG glass on the rear both have curved sides that meet the matte-finished aluminum alloy frame. Although these smooth surfaces are great at preventing fingerprints and smudges, they also make the Vivo X80 Pro highly slippery.
Vivo X80 Pro: Display
With the exception of thin, uniformly spaced bezels at the top and bottom and the punch-hole selfie camera in the top middle, the front of the X80 Pro is nearly entirely covered by its 6.78-inch display.
Sadly, the screen’s gentle side-to-side curvature makes it crystal evident that it doesn’t offer the best viewing angles.
Vivo X80 Pro: Performance
Another area where there’s simply no cause for complaint is core performance. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip from Qualcomm, the most potent Snapdragon chip currently offered in phones, powers the X80 Pro in its global variant. Although that’s the only choice you have, it comes with 256GB of non-expandable storage and 12GB of RAM.
Vivo aims to compete on a major scale when it comes to Android releases. Although it doesn’t appear that there is a particular guarantee on additional security fixes, the business guarantees three upgrades to the Android operating system.
Additionally certified for HDR10+ playback, the Vivo X80 Pro’s display supports the format in apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube.
The X80 Pro is the best device for watching movies or TV shows without earbuds since the stereo speakers can become loud and keep clarity even at high volume. This, together with the brilliant display, also makes the X80 Pro an excellent choice for gaming.
The above-described battery optimization tricks also seem incredibly pointless. With a 4,700mAh battery, the Vivo X80 Pro already has excellent battery life. I can easily get more than a day’s worth of moderate to heavy use out of it even while I’m on the go.
Even better, you won’t need to leave your phone plugged in overnight thanks to the rapid charging options available.
The 80W wired charger that comes with the phone is essential; in my testing, it restored the phone’s battery to 60% in 15 minutes and 98% in 30. As a result, you could likely plug in the phone while you take a shower and receive a full day’s worth of use.
