Vivo X80 Pro Review: The best camera smartphone

The company has invested a huge share of resources in the Vivo X80 Pro camera system, and for some reason, this will be a significant advantage when buying.

Vivo X80 Pro Review Summary

When it comes to Chinese smartphone brands in the international market, Vivo is certainly not as famous as Huawei, Xiaomi or OnePlus. But if you follow the smartphone market, you know that the company has been producing pretty high-quality devices for several years, and the Vivo X70 Pro Plus, in my opinion, was the best camera phone on the market last year. Now, after thoroughly testing the new Vivo X80 Pro, I can once again say that Vivo’s cameras are still amazing, and this gadget outperforms the iPhone 13 Pro in many shooting scenarios, even in low light.

Vivo X80 Pro Design

The Vivo X80 Pro continues the signature design of the Vivo X70 series with a huge frosted glass camera panel on the back. Even the dimensions of this gadget are identical to the Vivo X70 Pro Plus, although the camera panel of the new smartphone looks more attractive and understandable. Unfortunately, the Vivo X80 Pro is available exclusively in black for the global market, while in China there is also an orange version with an eco-leather panel. However, if the user does not really like the texture of the backside, he can always use a branded case (included) made of the same artificial leather.

120 Hz refresh rate

On the front side, in terms of design, of course, there is also nothing surprising – there is a 6.8-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1440×3200 pixels with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It is worth noting that this display has relatively symmetrical frames at the top and bottom, and the screen itself has a Qualcomm Sonic Max 3D fingerprint scanner. It stands out from the competition with a wider response area (it is so large that it can be reduced), while the response speed is very high.

Vivo X80 Pro Photo quality

The camera system of the Vivo X80 Pro is very similar to that offered by the X70 Pro Plus smartphone – the device is also equipped with four image sensors (ultra-wide and wide cameras, telephoto lens and zoom lens), while the optics are made by Zeiss. In addition, the smartphone received a special image processing sensor V1 Plus, which is an improved solution of what was presented in the X70 Pro Plus. Accordingly, if last year’s flagship shot very well, then the X80 Pro should shoot even better – this is worth talking about in more detail.

For starters, it’s worth looking at the shots from all four cameras in one scene. You can see that the X80 Pro copes well with various focal lengths – the shots are clear both on the main camera and on the 5x zoom lens. However, the smartphone clearly lacks the 10x optical zoom of Samsung’s flagship, and the X80 Pro doesn’t maintain the same colour temperature across all four lenses.
