Vivo X70 Pro Plus review: Raises the bar

Top Features

Premium design

Solid performance

Stunning camera

Vivo X60 Pro+ was the smartphone from the company to incorporate a gimbal camera, premium design and flagship-grade performance. We reviewed that smartphone last year and found that the gimbal camera is quite effective and works as expected.

A year later, the company introduced the Vivo X70 Pro Plus, the successor of X60 Pro Plus. While the major focus still remains the camera with its 48MP gimbal camera, 50MP GN1 sensor, a dedicated V1 image processing sensor and ZEISS optics, Vivo hasn’t cut corners with other aspects of the smartphone including little things that most brands tend to overlook. For instance, the buttons of the smartphone are completely silent, the curvature both at front and back has the same angle and the list can go on.

Not only these, but Vivo X70 Pro+ is also currently among a few smartphones to be powered by Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset -- Snapdragon 888+. It also comes with 12GB RAM, which means, at least on paper, there’s no shortage of horsepower. What is it like to use this smartphone in the real world? Read on to find out

The Vivo X70 Pro+ doesn’t feel too big compared to other ‘mega’ phones like the iPhone 13 Pro Max. This is despite Vivo putting more camera sensors and the gimbal setup as well.

Take a closer look at the device and you’ll notice the curvature of both the front display and the back panel is exactly the same. That makes the phone appear symmetrical to look at. It also adds to the grip while holding the phone. It’s not that thick, neither is it too thin, as was the case with Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (had a curved display at the top and a flat back).

Next up is the back panel, before getting into the enormous camera housing and the bump, let’s talk a bit about the back panel finish. Whatever Vivo has done with it, it is extremely satisfying and comfortable to touch. Also, just like ‘anti-virus’, it is anti-fingerprint. Basically, you can’t make the back dirty. For additional assurance though, Vivo has also included a leather case in the box.

Now, coming to the camera housing, there are two parts to it, a camera housing and an extension that has a mirror-like finish to it. The rectangular camera housing is placed vertically and it’s big. Though we understand that to fit that kind of sensor and everything else, space is required, but it gets in the way while holding the phone and that’s kind of annoying. The horizontal placement would have solved the problem. However, it looks good, for what it is worth.

The volume and power buttons are placed at the right side of the phone and they are completely silent and do not make that click-click sound at all.

The top has a ‘Professional Photography’ text printed alongside the IR sensor and secondary microphone. Rest is at the bottom where you can find USB Type-C port, primary speaker and microphone and SIM tray.

Vivo X70 Pro+ features a 6.78-inch 3200x1440 pixels Quad HD+ display. It’s a Samsung’s E5 AMOLED LPTO panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, 300Hz touch sampling rate and more. It also has over 1 billion colours and HDR10+ support.

As expected, the display is vibrant, clear, sharp and offers a pleasing viewing experience. It has good brightness levels and it gets pretty low too. So, bright daylight or bedtime binge-watching shows, the X70 Pro+ has got you covered.

Vivo has also baked in some display features like Dark mode, eye protection more, ability to adjust the resolution and refresh rate of the display. In our view, the Smart Switch refresh rate is best suited for the smartphone as it automatically balances the refresh rate of the display based on the content. This is something similar to iPhone 13 Pro’s ProDisplay feature or Samsung’s Adaptive display.

Overall, Vivo X70 Pro+ comes with an at par display compared to most flagship smartphones in the market and that’s an important aspect considering the price of the smartphone.

Vivo X70 Pro+, as already mentioned among a few smartphones to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ SoC. It is also paired with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage UFS 3.1 storage. The smartphone also comes with Extended RAM 2.0, which allows users to extend the RAM virtually by up to 4GB. Though we are not sure why anyone would need an additional 4GB RAM over the physical 12GB.

Still, we gave it a try and it works as expected. But does it make the smartphone any faster or make apps and games load faster than they actually are? No, it does not. What it does though is provide a little support lifting heavy-duty tasks. Let’s say you are exiting a 4K or 8K video footage right on your smartphone and let it render in the background and now you want to play BGMI while it does that’s where the Extended RAM will help.

Let’s talk about the actual performance of the smartphone. It's a Snapdragon 888+ and we expect nothing less than handling everything and anything without worries and it does exactly that. So, no lag, slowdown, stutter. It’s just a fast and responsive smartphone with an ample amount of RAM to keep apps running in the background. Also, paired with the faster UFS 3.1 storage, things are even better.

We played a couple of games and also used resource-hungry apps on the phone like Lightroom, KineMaster and played games like BGMI, CoD Mobile, etc. app loading was spot on. Games are too loaded pretty fast. The performance was also excellent. The 120Hz comes to play while doing various tasks and helps iron out any niggles that you can ever notice on the X70 Pro+.
It's the FunTouch OS that we like the most about the smartphone. It’s based on Android 11 and as childish as the name might sound, Vivo takes it pretty seriously and that seems there in the design, features that it offers and overall look and feel. We have always complained about Vivo's cartoon-ish design, rough edges at random places like Settings and more. All that is now gone. The icons are not more mainstream. Also, FunTouch OS now has an app launcher. The new FunTouch OS is the biggest improvement we have ever seen on an Android custom user interface. It has come a long way and we wish it should stay that way.

Talking about the OS, it offers a good set of features, customisation options and design. Users can basically customise everything from icons, themes and animations. It even gives the option of how the screen will blackout, change how the face unlock or fingerprint icon would appear.

There’s one thing that we wish Vivo should have avoided here. The bloatware is still there. It’s a premium device and we don’t expect it to come pre-installed with Spotify, PhonePe, Byjus, Netflix, Facebook, Hot Games, Hot apps, etc.

The audio quality too could have been better Sure it has dual speakers, but compared to other smartphones we have seen at this price point or even cheaper price, they sound better. X70 Pro+ sounds decent, it's just loudness and clarity should have been slightly better.

A lot of companies these days are betting on offering camera sensors with 108MP. Samsung has done it and so has Xiaomi. Vivo has taken a rather conservative -- relatively speaking -- with the X70 Pro+. Vivo is offering a 50MP primary sensor, which is still massive, but it is smaller than most smartphones including the ones that cost 1/3rd of the smartphone.

Vivo has put its efforts into improving things that matter for people while taking pictures or recording video using the smartphone. So, the advancements here are in terms of providing optics from ZEISS, the 48MP gimbal camera to offer excellent levels of video stabilisation and offering colour science from ZEISS book to offer that DSLR-like effect and so on.

Enough talking let’s start with showing you some pictures first that are taken using the Vivo X70 Pro+.

The first image that you see in our carousel, the one that shows buildings and the sky, is taken using the smartphone's 50MP primary sensor in auto mode. So, as you can see, the sensor has a lot of capabilities and has a really good dynamic range. We then took the same photo with ZEISS mode turned on that further enhancing the colours in the photo to make it look more natural as you would see from bare eyes.

The second photo you see is also taken using the primary sensor, here you can see the smartphone has focused on the centre part of the leaf instead of the whole, so the focusing here is pretty impressive.

Next up is the 48MP ultra wide-angle gimbal camera and it’s a deal-breaker for the Vivo X70 Pro+. Most people can only relate to gimbal terms while shooting videos. But, it’s much more than that. If you have used Night mode on most of the smartphones in a really dark situation, it would usually take 5 to 6 seconds shutter time and that makes it really hard to keep your hands stable and that then ends up in a blurry night shot. This is where the gimbal setup helps. It can stabilise a shot in the night more for you more than your hands can ever be and ends up taking the same shot without any blur (most of the time) in just 3 seconds.

Talking about the Night mode image quality, we say that this is one of the best Night mode implementations we’ve seen on a smartphone. Not only do the sensors capture a good amount of details but it also keeps that essence of the photo that the images have been shot in a dark situation.

The Night mode is also paired with a couple of shooting styles to suit the surrounding better. For instance, you are taking a night mode shot at some retro location and you want it to appear that way, there’s a mode called Black & Gold, this also works perfectly for taking Night mode shots of people. There's Cyberpunk mode, Dreamy spotlight and more.

The Night mode is also paired with a bunch of other modes like Extreme exposure, tripod detection, long exposure for those beautiful trails, Night Pano, Supermoon and Astro modes.

Portrait mode Vivo has something special there as well. The first thing is that it captures the edges perfectly without making it look too artificial unless you want it to. The mode also comes with ZEISS styles borrowed from the company's portrait lens portfolio -- Biotar, Sonnar, Planar and Distagon. All these modes might appear gimmicky, but there they add some freshness to the entire portrait photo if you know when and where to use them.

Then, there are a bunch of other regular shooting modes like slo-mo, Pro mode, etc. In terms of camera, the Vivo X70 Pro+ is pretty jacked up.

Video is another major strength of Vivo X70 Pro+, thanks to the gimbal stabilisation and the colour science used here. The video mode also includes a dedicated Night mode which is an uncommon feature in smartphones.

The phone has multiple levels of image stabilisation -- standard, ultra, a horizontal line and Super anti-shake pro. While all the other modes work with every lens, to use the gimbal stabilisation, you’ll need to enable anti-shake pro and it’s a complicated process, we will explain that in a bit.

What we have here is an impressive level of video stabilisation and a camera setup that delivers really good video footage that is almost ready to use.

The phone also supports Macro mode and that’s alright, but the distance could have been less and slightly more details would have been welcomed.

But one thing that we didn’t like is the camera app layout and mode placement. It gets confusing at times. Now, there are two Supermoon modes, two Panorama modes, two Long exposure modes and so on. Why is that, because each one of the modes that have been mentioned above is also a part of a sub-menu of the Night mode and it’s confusing. Why don’t put the modes as they are and add a Night mode button inside that mode?

Similarly, to enable gimbal level of image stabilisation, first, you need to go into Video mode, then tap on the stabilisation icon and choose Ultra mode and then you get the option of the anti-shake pro in the bottom right corner of the viewfinder. How is a new user expected to find that option?

Vivo has done an impressive job with the camera hardware and the whole processing thing with the dedicated V1 chip and the entire image output including the video is at par or even better than more premium smartphones, they just need to get things straight with the camera app.

The 4500mAh battery paired with 55W Flash Charge, 50W wireless charging and 9W reverse wireless charging is everything a user can wish for in a smartphone. The 4500mAh battery might not be as big, but the endurance is good and managed to last throughout the day without putting us in a panic situation. The 55W fast charger juice up the smartphone in just under an hour.

Vivo X70 Pro+ costs Rs 79,990. It’s not an ordinary price. The price segment opens up the door for iPhone’s and Galaxy’s. A segment that has been owned by the two brands for a while now. It might not be that competitive space, but it's definitely the most settled smartphone space and it's hard to imagine someone entering that and shaking up things a bit and Vivo X70 Pro+ is that someone.

Vivo has got the basics right with the X70 Pro+. Starting from the design, performance, display to the camera everything is well thought out. The Vivo X70 Pro+ has got that premium design, look and feel to make it homely in this price bracket. Then it has got the performance and cameras are just among the best in class.

So should you buy it, shortlist it or discard it? Our pick will be to go ahead buy it, you won’t be disappointed.
