Vivo X100 Pro Review: Next level camera tech Vivo’s real success with its decoration X series of smartphones took off with the X70 Pro, in 2021. Back also, I compared it with Xiaomi’s mega Mi 11 Ultra and the X70 Pro made good use of its unique gimbal stabilisation system( it also introduced its V1 imaging chip), which handed good stability while shooting videotape in all types of lighting conditions.

Next over was the Vivo X80 Pro, which was a good successor to the same, it introduced features like a hand- held astrophotography mode and bettered at low light imaging using all 4 of its hinder cameras. The Vivo X90 Pro which followed aphorism Vivo losing its focus missing some tackle rudiments and floundering to deliver on the camera and performance front as well.

Compared to the below three models, the new Vivo X100 Pro appears relatively different, indeed though it retains numerous of the rudiments that made the former models special. There is the distinct twisted edge display which Vivo refuses to let go of, but it all results in a phone that appears different and feels unique.

The brand retains the triadic hinder camera setup but with new tackle. Vivo also introduces its new and more important V3 imaging chip with the X100 Pro. This on with the new MediaTek Dimensity 9300 SoC( a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 original) makes it a veritably interesting and intriguing immolation from Vivo. I have been using this phone for a couple of weeks and then is what I suppose about it.

Vivo X100 Pro Review Price in India

It may not inescapably be a contender to Samsung’s Galaxy’s S23 Ultra ( as it falls in a fully different price type), but it’ll surely give Google’s precious and AI- driven Pixel 8 Pro( fromRs.) a run for its plutocrat. The Vivo X100 Pro is priced atRs. 89,999 for the sole 16 GB RAM and 512 GB storehouse variant. In the box, Vivo gives you a bowl, a Type- C charging string, and a well- made, durable silicon case.Google Pixel 8 Pro Review New Pixel, Old Problems

Vivo X100 Pro Review Design

Just like the X90 Pro, the Vivo X100 Pro is also available in a single finish and it’s called Asteroid Black, which has a fluoriteanti-glare glass back panel. Indeed, Vivo doesn’t give buyers any choice compared to other brands at this price point. The orange vegan- leather finish which was launched in China still remains a distant dream for the brand’s guests in India.

The Vivo X100 Pro’s design has seen plenitude of advances over last time’s X90 Pro. Starting off with size, it’s still relatively large and chunky and the massive cookie- shaped camera bump adds to its consistence. still, Vivo has managed to make it appear slimmer with a more rounded design and it’s conceivably the reason why Vivo still sticks to a 3D twisted edge display, when utmost manufacturers have stopped using it.

Calling out the Vivo X100 Pro’s consistence and fleshiness doesn’t mean that it’s the largest or the heaviest phone in its class. The phone weighs 225 grams which is enough much the same as last time’s model. Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra is still heavier( 234g), while Apple’s titanium laden iPhone 15 Pro Max feels lower and slimmer but as light( 221g) as the X100 Pro. Apple’s adventure with titanium and the new folded optic design for its blowup camera has surely paid off.

While it has some design parallels with former X series models, the massive camera bump sure helps the phone separate itself from the aged models and does look relatively unique. Vivo claims it was inspired by the sun’s halo when designing this slightly neutralize pristine sword ring around the large twisted edge glass which sits inside it. I wished that Vivo had given the ring a raised edge as the camera glass seems relatively vulnerable given its size.

Coming back to the overall design, it’s dull- finish feels luxurious, but also extremely slippery. Given that it’s a camera phone, it’s judicious to attach the included case as soon as you unbox the phone, as it’s hard to grip and is also veritably top-heavy in terms of balance thanks to the large camera glass and detectors.

The phone’s twisted edge frontal glass( from an unnamed manufacturer) remained smudge-free during the review period and also free of any scrapes. The display underneath this glass screen which angles on the left and right sides, also bends into the sides but not in much, so I didn’t find it distracting when viewing content indoors but it does reduce the viewing area( with reflections) when viewed outside.

The IP68 standing for dust and water resistance is still veritably important present and sanctioned. This on with the wireless charging coil and a larger than usual 5,400 mAh battery seems to justify the X100 Pro’s fleshiness.

Vivo X100 Pro Review Specifications and software

The Vivo X100 Pro has a MediaTek Dimensity 9300 SoC, which is a first for India. The processor is accompanied by the new V3 Imagingco-processor, which Vivo claims helps with imaging and gaming. The phone offers 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512 GB of UFS4.0 storehouse, with no room for expandable storehouse. still, you do get space for two physical nano SIM cards in the SIM card charger and the phone also supports eSIM functionality along with binary 5G buttress.

The6.78- inch full- HD twisted edge AMOLED panel has 120Hz refresh rate and uses LTPO technology letting the refresh rate scale down when demanded to save on battery life. The point anthology is of the regular optic type and is bedded into the display itself. It worked directly and reliably during the course of the review.

Communication norms include Wi- Fi 7, Bluetooth5.4, NFC, an infrared harborage, and a USB- C harborage( interpretation3.2) along with support for the usual satellite navigation systems. The large 5,400 mAh battery( made up of two cells) can be charged up using Vivo’s personal 120W wired bowl( which is included in the box) but is limited to 100W. The phone also supports 50W wireless charging, which again requires a independently vended charging wharf.

The phone runs Funtouch OS 14 which is grounded on Android 14 and has indeed been streamlined to the rearmost December 2023 security update. Vivo also seems relatively married to software updates and pledges to deliver three times or security and firmware updates.

The software experience when using Funtouch OS 14 isn’t veritably different from what it was on former models with Funtouch OS 13( and Android 13). From what’s egregious, the MaterialYou-esque theming machine is now more polished and offers a lot further variety in terms of colours and tapes.

Applying them too happens incontinently and it isn’t as perambulator as on the aged software. still, Vivo claims to have worked on the optimisation and smoothness bit and now offers an instant start up mode which thrills the phone in 20 seconds after plugging it into a bowl from a dead battery. The software, while appearing relatively polished, is a far cry from what’s possible on a Pixel 8 Pro with Google’s customised interpretation of AI- amended Android 14 software.

Vivo X100 Review Performance

As for software performance, effects do appear and feel relatively smooth. Whether multitasking or running several apps at the same time, the 16 GB of RAM( along with 16 GB of virtual RAM) seems further than enough for indeed the most demanding smartphone conditions and leaves apps and games in memory for long ages, which can be recalled incontinently without a renew.
