vivo has just launched this new x70 series of smartphones in India.
I’m actually really excited about this because offline phones have
kind of become boring iPhone.
but you know what if the Vivo x60 series
was any indication the Vivo x70 series
would be anything but boring I mean Vivo
sent us this really interesting looking
box for the Vivo x70 pro plus
let’s unbox this Vivo x70 pro series.
so this is the new Vivo x70 pro plus and
the Vivo x70 pro side by side now I’ll
be focusing on the Vivo x70 pro plus
because this is Vivo’s ultimate flagship
phone and there’s a lot of hype around it.
so what’s new?
what are the upgrades?
well there’s actually a lot of them
first off the Vivo x70 pro plus looks
like a flagship phone, it has a frosted
the glass back yes this is glass and it has
this satin-like matte finish that’s just
brilliant to touch and it does not
attract any fingerprints.
if you ask me
you will love touching this phone sounds
a little weird I know but you will love
it now this whole matte black look is
kind of understated.
but what’s not understated is this big camera module
and this new decorative ceramic piece on
the side of it now when I first saw this
I thought it’d be a display but that’s
just to add to the style factor now this
is slightly heavier than the Vivo x60 pro
plus at 213 grams but unlike the Vivo x60 pro plus
the Vivo x70 pro plus has everything you want in a flagship
it has ip68 water and dust resistance wireless charging support.
large volume x apps mode of haptic feedback.
dual stereo speakers with a separate hi-fi chip.
yup this phone is packed the screen is also a big big upgrade.
compared to the x60 pro plus now
this is a curved 6.7-inch panel and this
is Samsung’s new tips e5 120hz amoled
screen which means this is a screen that
can arrive from one hertz to 120hz
dynamically now that’s not the only
upgrade it’s a qhd plus aka 2k
resolution screen it also has a 10 bit
colors hdr 10 plus support and a crazy
peak brightness of 1500 nits yeah this
display is as high end as it gets I mean
it looks absolutely stunning it’s super
smooth and watching movies on this is a fantastic experience
the phone has upgraded specs too it has
the latest snapdragon flagship chipset
the snapdragon triple eight-plus which
can hit the 3.0 gigahertz mark compared
to 2.8 gigahertz on the regular
snapdragon triple eight also has 256
GB of fast ufs 3.1 storage and 12 GB
of lpddr5 ram again those are just top
of the line specs in the android world
now if you want to know the benchmark
scores here the android and geek bench
scores which obviously are very good
benchmarks apart I’ve only had the phone
for a day so I can’t judge the
performance yet but I have been playing
some bgmi on this phone and this thing
just seems flagship great there’s no lag
or anything super smooth so no doubt so far
the Vivo x70 pro plus also has a bigger 4500 Mah battery.
it comes with the very fast 55-watt flash charger.
also supports 50-watt fast wireless charging.
it can also wirelessly charge other
devices at 10 watts which is all pretty
now let’s talk about the cameras
which has been the big usp of the vivo x
series of spawns and is the same here
with the x70 pro plus.
now on paper the x70 pro plus his camera
setup hasn’t changed much and that’s not
a bad thing.
you still get the 48 megapixel ultra wide camera with vivo signature gimbal oia system.
there’s also the 50-megapixel Samsung gn1 main sensor.
the 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x
optical zoom and the 8 megapixel
periscope telephoto lens that supports
5x optical zoom.
now all of these lenses have ois and they all have zeiss optics.
the zeiss t-star lens coating along with
the new high transmittance glass lens to
reduce chromatic aberration and all of
this is powered by vivo’s new
professional imaging v1 chip which is
said to enhance clarity and blur in
moving shots and also reduce noise and
enhance brightness in low light
so the hardware is packed but so is the
the software, first of all, there’s a zeiss
the mode that you can enable for more
natural-looking shots i took some shots
with the zeiss mode off and on and i did
not notice a big difference because i
think the x70 pro plus now takes more
natural-looking shots by default there’s
also, different zeiss portrait modes that
are supposed to mimic classic zeiss
lenses and as you can see there are some
new additions which is cool
another cool feature is real-time
extreme night vision powered by the v1
chip that shows you a more accurate and
brighter preview when shooting in
extreme low light i mean there are times
they’re taking a photo an extreme low
light and you can’t really frame things
properly because the viewfinder is all
dark now this fixes this because the
preview is just much better.
there’s also 360 degree horizon level stabilization mode
which is awesome it uses the gimbal in the ultrawide sensor
to make sure that no matter what you do
the video maintains horizontal level i
mean just look at the viewfinder see how
it remains stable no matter what i do
yeah this looks insane right.
apart from this there’s also the pro
cinematic mode that has video log spot
lens switching focus distance mark
adjustable audio etc.
now these features are cool but what about usual photos?
well i have been taking shots on the
main camera and the ultra wide angle
lens and most photos from both of these
cameras look sharp detailed and have
the excellent dynamic range just check out
this shot the dynamic range is just
brilliant even in the ultra wide-angle
shot now the phone also does well in
complex lighting scenarios with the
t-star lens scoring and the high
transmittance glass I shot this with the
sun shining bright right on the camera
and the photos don’t have any glare or weird reflections
even in low light the x70 pro plus
camera does really well especially when
there’s lights and it just handles
lights a lot better than most phones out there.
there’s also 2x optical zoom and 5x
optical zoom support and here’s a 1x
zoom shot and a 2x zoom shot next to it
and the 2x zoom shot looks very good
quality-wise now here’s a 5x zoom shot
with the periscope lens and yeah it
looks good here’s another example.
now to be honest I will have to compare the Vivo x70 pro plus this camera to other flagships
to truly see how good this is but in my
brief testing these do seem like very
good flagship great cameras lastly
there’s a software that i haven’t talked about
so let me tell you about that so
the phone has funtouch os 12 with
android 11 and if you’re wondering about
the pre-installed apps there are a few
of them amazon phone page spotify share
chat buy juice netflix facebook now
these apps can be uninstalled but it’s
weird seeing them on such a premium
phone especially the hot apps and hot games folder
apart from this i noticed this new
widget section which is probably part of
origin os we were always in china anyway
some of the videos look nice so I’ve
been using them apart from all this
along with the Vivo x70 series, we will also
introduce Vivo x care which means anyone
who buys any of the Vivo x70 series variants
will get a dedicated expert for
assistance a fast 24×7 dedicated calling
the line for support doorstep repair service
and exclusive counter at Vivo service
centers where an assigned engineer and a
standby device will be available anyway
to sum things up the Vivo x70 pro plus
is a proper flagship smartphone and an
exciting smartphone I mean no matter
which aspect of this phone do you look at
you will find top of the line specs and
some really exciting features.
so the design is super-premium it’s got
all the flagship specs and features like
fast wireless charging ip68 rating ltpu
120hz amoled it’s got the best specs you
can get on android phones and the
cameras remain a big highlight with so
many advanced features and tech.
so yeah if you ask me I think all this
the hype around the Vivo x70 pro plus is
justified this is actually an exciting
the android flagship in a day when we don’t
get a lot of exciting flagships anymore
anyway that’s the x70 pro plus but viva
has also launched the x70 pro which
brings the dimension to 1200 chipset and
fhd plus curved AMD display quad cameras
with zeiss optics and more
