2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 8 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • The Vivo X50 is a breath of fresh air, bringing a sexy, luxurious design - the soft satin finish of the glass back with a classy matte metallic hue gives it a unique and amiable look
  • It is one of the few Android phones that is somewhat compact and relatively light-weight at this price
  • The under-display fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate for the most part and there's also Face Unlock that works well


  • Very good 6.5-inch AMOLED FHD+ screen, which looks pretty good - the colours are punchy, saturated and viewing content on it is a delight
  • The display have all the bells and whistles here including a 90Hz refresh rate, 180Hz response rate, HDR10+ support and up to 1300 nits peak brightness


  • As with all previous Vivo phones, the software experience continues to be the pain point, it has barely improved over the last few years - this wouldn’t have been as big a deal if it were another one of Vivo’s budget smartphones, but consumers expect an ad-free, no-frills affair in the premium segment, that the X50 Pro is lacking


  • Good performance with the new Snapdragon 730 - the Vivo X50 dashes through everything you throw at it, for day to day use, you should have no issues whatsoever and Heavy 3D games like PUBG Mobile runs smoothly
  • The Snapdragon 730 is a good processor, but for a phone at this price the Vivo X50 feels a little underpowered


  • Very good quad camera setup - a primary gimbal 48MP sensor, a 13MP portrait zoom lens, an 8MP ultra-wide and an 5MP macro camera
  • In daylight everything looks generally pleasing including sharp, detailed shots with good colours - close-ups look excellent too, with sharp details and generous background bokeh
  • The ultra-wide camera gets you that extra-wide perspective on the world - it adds a little extra fun to the functionality with the macro mode and can take sharp and detailed close-ups - this pretty much renders the dedicated macro camera obsolete
  • Portrait shots of people and objects generally look good - you can adjust the level of background blur, and add beauty effects and filters
  • The front-facing 32MP camera does a good job - the portrait mode works well, filters, Beauty and other usual features are also present
  • Overall, this is one of the more exciting camera setups at this price and Vivo isn't playing a numbers game, each camera has different functionality that adds to the overall versatility of the cameras


  • Good loudspeaker performance - the output is loud and clear with very little distortion in the bass at full volume
  • There’s no headphone jack and you will have to invest in some good Bluetooth headsets if you want to charge your phone and listen to music simultaneously


  • Good battery life with the 4200 mAh cell - it will easily last a full day on a single charge with 90 Hz display on moderate use
  • Very good fast charging with the 33W Flash Charger - it can fill up the battery in about 80 minutes


  • The Vivo X50 is a pretty solid all-rounder - it looks stylish, is built well, and has good cameras, battery life and the AMOLED display are also some of its strong suits (though, the software might be an eyesore to a lot of users, it also feels a little underpowered for the price)
  • For the price, the Vivo X50 is a little underpowered compared to phones such as the Realme X2 Pro and OnePlus 7T, which both have flagship-level SoCs - while this shouldn't hamper day-to-day performance, it could prevent certain high-end games from running at their full potential
