Vivo’s as of late propelled X50 arrangement is its most premium contribution yet. Vivo X50 Pro , ended up being a fantastic 5G cell phone with a novel gimbal camera framework. Today we’ll be trying its less-advertised kin, the Vivo X50. It does not have the gimbal camera framework and 5G SoC that its greater sibling brags of, yet separated from these highlights, the two telephones are fundamentally the same as. Add to that a Rs. 15,000 value contrast between the two models’ base variations, and you have a solid mid-level competitor, on paper at any rate.
Should you pick the Vivo X50 at its beginning cost of Rs. 34,990? I’ve been utilizing this telephone for about a week and it’s an ideal opportunity to check whether Vivo has hit another grand slam, much the same as with its greater kin.
Vivo X50 design and display
Much the same as the Vivo X50 Pro, the Vivo X50 looks striking from any point and is effectively one the most attractive telephones I’ve seen from the organization of late. It feels premium and all around manufactured as well, because of the metal casing and pearly glass back. Fun certainty: units in the Frost Blue shading that I have are a smidgen slimmer (7.49mm) and lighter (171.5g), than those in the Glaze Black trim. Vivo tells that the dark variation utilizes a marginally extraordinary enemy of unique mark covering method, which is the reason it’s somewhat thicker, despite the fact that it didn’t remark on the weight distinction.
The Vivo X50 has a glass back and a metal edge. The matte completion of the Frost Blue variation looks great and it infrequently pulled in fingerprints I would say. Much the same as the Vivo X50 Pro, the Vivo X50’s casing is leveled on the top and base, loaning it an unmistakable look. On the base, it has a double Nano-SIM plate, a USB Type-C port (USB 2.0) and a solitary speaker. The volume and force catches are on the privilege of the telephone, and convey great criticism.
The Vivo X50 has a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a full-HD+ goal, 90Hz invigorate rate, and HDR10+ accreditation. I like the reality the bezels are genuinely thin on all sides, including the base jawline. There’s an opening punch pattern for the selfie camera and an in-display unique mark sensor. The last is brisk at validation, and the equivalent goes for face acknowledgment as well.
At long last, the Vivo X50 has a camera knock at the back, yet its multi-layered design covers the projection very well. Generally, the Vivo X50 is a very much assembled cell phone with a premium in-hand feel. The display is on the more extensive side, which could be an issue on the off chance that you have littler hands. Fortunately, there are a lot of signals in Funtouch OS to cure this, which we’ll discuss straightaway. In the case, you get the standard extras including a case, a headset, and a Type-C to 3.5mm earphone connector.
Vivo X50 programming
The Vivo X50 runs a similar programming as the X50 Pro, Funtouch OS 10.5, in view of Android 10. A ton’s pressed into this custom Android skin, beginning with a lot of repetitive applications, for example, Vivo’s own application store, program, and email customer — none of which can be uninstalled. My unit even had a couple applications, for example, TikTok and Helo, which have now been prohibited by the Indian government, yet these can be uninstalled.
Nonetheless, Funtouch OS additionally offers a lot of interface customisation which truly let you tweak your experience. The furthest left homescreen can be set to show you the Google news source, or with a tap of a catch, you can change to Vivo’s Smart Launcher. This offers application easy routes, Digital Wellbeing data, a number cruncher gadget, and parcels more. The ‘Dynamic impacts’ menu in the Settings application lets you set custom lighting impacts for approaching calls and warnings. It likewise lets you set an activity for when the telephone opens, and various movements for a unique mark coordinate, face acknowledgment, charging, and so forth.
You likewise get a consistently on display include, with a decent determination of clock faces. There’s a one-handed mode, which is valuable when you have to arrive at the extraordinary corners of the display. Bloatware aside, Funtouch OS offers a great deal of helpful highlights and customisation alternatives, which I very enjoyed.
Vivo X50 performance
The Vivo X50 utilizes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, like the Redmi K20. It’s not the most impressive SoC at a telephone at this cost, particularly when you have choices dependent on the Snapdragon 855+ and Snapdragon 765G SoCs to rival. It’s as yet a well-performing, power-effective chip however, and it figures out how to hold its own even with overwhelming errands.
The Vivo X50 is accessible in two variations — 8GB of RAM with 128GB of capacity for Rs. 34,990, and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of capacity for Rs. 37,990. I’ve been utilizing the base variation of the X50 for about a week and up until now, performance has been only extraordinary. Opening the telephone is speedy and consistent, the interface is consistently smart gratitude to the high-invigorate rate screen, and performing multiple tasks isn’t an issue. The AMOLED display gets extremely brilliant, hues look punchy, and I didn’t see any off-hub coloring either.
HDR recordings looked great when played locally or through YouTube. Be that as it may, for reasons unknown the Netflix application neglected to recognize the HDR ability when I attempted it. All things considered, recordings as a rule looked excellent. The base speaker can get very noisy for media playback or even calls, however a sound system arrangement is painfully missed.
I discovered gaming performance to be truly strong as well. The Game Space application sorts out all your introduced games in a single spot, yet getting to this menu makes two or three additional strides, which feels pointless. You can raise the Game Space menu mid-game with a basic swipe signal. This spring up merry go round lets you square approaching calls, lock the screen’s brilliance, start a screen recording, and so on. The vast majority of the games I attempted ran fine and dandy. There was insignificant warming, in any event, playing overwhelming titles, for example, PUBG Mobile. The Vivo X50 did well in benchmarks as well, scoring 2,80,418 focuses in AnTuTu and 68fps in the T-Rex test in GFXBench.
Vivo X50 battery life
I found the battery life of the Vivo X50 to be more than palatable. Indeed, even with light gaming and camera use, I was effectively getting at any rate a day and a half, and now and again even up to two entire days on one charge. This diminished when I was trying the cameras, yet all things considered, I was effectively enduring a day with enough left over for the following. The 4,200mAh battery is somewhat littler than what you get in the X50 Pro, however it despite everything ran for a decent 15 hours and 42 minutes in our HD video circle test. The packaged charger underpins Vivo’s 33W FlashCharge innovation, which had the option to charge the X50’s battery completely in less than 60 minutes.
Vivo X50 cameras
The Vivo X50 probably won’t have the gimbal adjustment framework or the zooming focal point of the X50 Pro, yet it despite everything packs in a decent arrangement of cameras. At the back, you get a primary 48-megapixel Sony IMX598 sensor with optical adjustment and a f/1.6 gap focal point; a 8-megapixel ultra wide-edge camera with self-adjust and a f/2.2 opening; a 13-megapixel representation camera with about 2.2x the central length of the fundamental one; and a 5-megapixel full scale camera.
The principle back camera was really noteworthy generally. In sunshine, landscape shots stuffed in a lot of detail, hues were energetic, and introduction was adjusted. Close-ups looked great as well, with sharp subtleties and liberal foundation bokeh, on account of that enormous f/1.6 opening. With AI scene acknowledgment empowered, hues are for the most part supported, so in the event that you need a more regular look to your photographs, it’s ideal to leave it off.
The Vivo X50 additionally has some perfect little deceives for video. Keen Zoom, which can be initiated through the little camcorder symbol, will naturally zoom in and out to follow your subject, given you’re a sensible good ways from it. This functions admirably yet the self-adjust isn’t sufficiently snappy to keep up and film looks somewhat grainy if there isn’t sufficient light. There’s eye discovery self-adjust, which worked quite well. Item following is likewise great, and the X50 can keep following the subject regardless of whether it quickly drops out of the casing and returns.
Would it be advisable for you to purchase the Vivo X50?
I experience no difficulty suggesting the Vivo X50, as it has demonstrated to be a really strong all-rounder. It looks polished, is fabricated well, and has great cameras. Battery life and the AMOLED display are likewise a portion of its solid suits. Notwithstanding, I have to address that at its beginning cost of Rs. 34,990, it’s a little underpowered contrasted with telephones, for example, the Realme X2 Pro and OnePlus 7T , which both have lead level SoCs. While this shouldn’t hamper everyday performance, it could forestall certain top of the line games from running at their maximum capacity. Another miss from Vivo is the avoidance of sound system speakers.
On the off chance that neither of these things trouble you, at that point I think you’d be content with the Vivo X50, particularly in case you’re searching for a decent cameras and an excellent design.
