Vivo X60 Pro: A real-world daily driver user review. Its been a few weeks now since the Vivo X60 Pro came out in the Indian market. I have been using the X60 Pro for a few weeks now and I wanted to share some of my overall experience. Vivo phones are always known for cameras but anyone looking for a camera phone may not reply on Vivo. The release of the Vivo X60 Pro came with tons of Camera optimization and it has made some good noise in the market.
Let us start of with each category and I will share my real work usage experience:
I never start my review with a Camera but hey this phone heavily banks on Camera so why not. The X60 Pro comes with 48MP(Sony IMX598 Sensor)+13MP Ultra-Wide Angle+13MP Pro Portrait Lens Triple Rear Camera Setup. There are a variety of camera options available like Super moon, Astro, pro sports and long exposure, etc. Portrait shots in my experience can give you a DSLR kinda feel.
The video stabilization and Carl Zeiss lens are a bonus. Gimbal stabilization 2.0 is much improved and mark my words it does work as intended.
Sharing some of the shots that I took, considering the lockdown situation no outdoor shots to share with you:
Display and Design
The Display is a 6.56 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2376 x 1080 Pixels. Every phone focusing on refresh rate, so the X60 Pro comes with a 120 Hz Refresh Rate and 240 Hz Response rate. The phone weighs just 179 g and feels super slim and lightweight. The phone comes with Widevine L1 Certificate, so watching content won’t be an issue. The display and design sit at a sweet spot with nothing much to complain about. The 3D curved display may be a hit or miss for many.
Performance is a key parameter of a phone which is priced at ₹49,990. You will find Snapdragon 888 which is the latest and fastest Processor available from Qualcomm. ROG Phone 5 and recently launched iQOO 7 Legend will provide you the same at the same price. The Vivo X60 Pro comes with Snapdragon 870, the 870 is what I can say 95-97% the same compared with Snapdragon 865 Plus. The 865 Plus and 870 just have a clock speed difference nothing much. On Vivo X60 pro I did some light gaming and every other task performed very well. Heating was not noticed till now. You can find the entire performance comparison between 888vs870 if you want to learn more about Android Authority. 12GB RAM and 256GB storage compel the overall performance of the phone.
Battery and Charging
The battery is something that depends upon your usage coupled with a good UI. The Vivo comes with Funtouch OS 11.1 (Based on Android 11). Even though the Battery is 4200mAh it does the job pretty well. The Charger is a 33W Flash Charge which chargers the phone. The phone can be charged 0 to 100 in around 1 hour.
- Light weight
- Premium looks
- Few Bloatware
- Power and Volume Keys Quality
I feel apart from reading the review, customer reviews also play an important part. Everyone has a different view of the product, if you are planning to buy Vivo X60 pro do checkout reviews on Flipkart and Amazon India.
Some of the other small things include what you get inbox – X60 Pro, XE710 (3.5mm jack) + Type-C adapter, Documentation, Type-C to USB Cable, USB Power Adapter, SIM Ejector, Protective Case, Protective Film (applied). The phone supports 5G. The closest competition for Vivo X60 pro will be ASUS ROG Phone 5, OnePlus 9R or OnePlus 9, iQOO 7, Xiaomi Mi 11.
