2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 23+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • The Vivo X50 Pro 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 only Android flagships that is somewhat compact and relatively light-weight
  • The under-display fingerprint scanner is fast and accurate for the most part and there's also Face Unlock that works well

Display

  • 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

Software

  • 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

Performance

  • Very good performance with the new Snapdragon 765G - the Vivo X50 Pro 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

Camera

  • Very good quad camera setup - a primary gimbal 48MP sensor, a 13MP portrait zoom lens, an 8MP ultra-wide and an 8MP periscope lens
  • In daylight everything looks generally pleasing including sharp, detailed shots with good colours - the gimbal system is as if the sensor is 'floating', so it can compensate in three dimensions to help keep everything extra stable and smooth
  • 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
  • The 5X periscope can help bring farther away subjects to appear closer in the frame, it is really useful at times - it can crop up to 60X digitally
  • The front-facing 32MP camera does a good job - the portrait mode works well, filters, Beauty and other usual features are also present
  • Video recording on the X50 Pro is excellent with the gimble coming into play, it captures amazingly smooth video, just like a camera on gimble would
  • 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

Audio

  • Good loudspeaker performance - the output is loud and clear with very little distortion in the bass at full volume (though, most competitors offer stereo speakers at this price)
  • 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

Battery

  • Good battery life with the 4315 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

Verdict

  • The Vivo X50 Pro is the most polished smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer, some of its hardware is second to none, the cameras are extremely enjoyable, the battery backup is reliable, all of which comes in a powerful petite package (though, the software might be an eyesore to a lot of user)
  • If great software is high on your priorities, the OnePlus 8 is a serious contender with equally excellent hardware and a software skin that is easy to be smitten with, but its cameras aren't as great as the X50 Pro - there’s also the Xiaomi Mi 10 which offers a complete hardware and camera package
