A Rare Purity In This Era: Vivo X70 Pro “monologue” Experience


[Bestbuy618 mobile channel] The Vivo X70 Pro was released in September, but we didn’t get this “mono” until recently. This isn’t because Vivo forgot about the X70 Pro, but because this colorway is relatively more unique, and mass production should be difficult. As you can see in the image, the back panel of the “Solo White” appears to be snowy white, but if you turn the phone and look closely, you will notice that this “snow” also has “high and low,” and the light under the effect of the coating will make the back panel have highlights and shadows, which looks quite three-dimensional. There are two additional elements on top of the back panel.

The Vivo logo appears to be a small series of footprints on the snow left by passersby strolling through the snow; in contrast, the large image module appears to be a modern building erected on the wilderness, which attracts attention. In the hand, the Vivo X70 Pro weighs 185g and is 7.99mm thick compared to the snow, which is not the ultimate thin and light, but definitely not as heavy as most current flagships.

Because of the 3D glass with a larger front and rear curvature, the X70 Pro feels thinner in the hand than its parameters. The back of the AG glass is very well tuned to the aluminum frame, with precise articulation, giving it a delicate, solid feel. The front of the vivo X70 Pro is equipped with a 1080P level OLED display measuring 6.56 inches, supporting 120Hz high refresh rate, and HDR.

The screen’s actual appearance and feel are well worth the price, and there is nothing wrong with the overall color accuracy, smoothness of use, and follow-through. The X70 Pro can display and play some of the streaming videos that support HDR without color overflow or abnormal exposure thanks to HDR support.

Overall, for a phone priced at 4000 yuan, the Vivo X70 Pro’s display is already on par with a mainstream flagship.

Of course, the X70 Pro’s OLED screen allows it to use the under-screen fingerprint module, and our actual tests show that its unlocking speed and success rate are excellent. But perhaps mass production should be investigated further; their own iQOO 8 Pro on the excellent performance of the ultrasonic fingerprint is not used in the X70 Pro, but considering the iQOO 8 Pro ultrasonic fingerprint experience in the current is not popular on top of other flagships, this wave of regret can be considered relieved. In comparison to the aggressive X1 A78 A55 configuration of the Snapdragon 888, Samsung and Vivo chose a high-frequency A78 mid-frequency A78 A55 configuration, which is slightly inferior to the Snapdragon 888 in terms of peak performance but theoretically better in terms of comprehensive energy consumption and heat control. In actual use, this SoC also plays quite well, with stable frame rate output in the game “Peace Elite” and almost no visible lag visible to the naked eye.

Vivo’s control is also quite good in daily use scheduling, and with Origin OS animation, the overall control is smooth. The performance of the SoC power consumption is also reflected to some extent in the performance of the battery life.

I performed a series of 2.5-hour battery life tests on the X70 Pro, and the results are included.

1, 1 hour of “Peace Elite” game, picture quality is high frame rate HD21, 1 hour Bilibili online video, picture quality is 1080P3, 30 minutes of video recording, picture quality is 1080p 60fps4, the above test content is controlled at 50% of the screen brightness

The results of the tests are depicted in the line graph below. According to the results chart, the power consumption of the X70 Pro in the game scene and the current mainstream flagship is essentially the same, but in streaming video playback is quite power saving, an hour of B station video also consumes only about 5% of power; video recording power consumption is also at a normal level. The test results remained 63 percent, placed in the database of flagships can have a medium level, a day a charge is enough to use.

The vivo X70 Pro is equipped with a 44W fast charging solution, I started the test from 0% off, every five minutes to record the power, the final charging speed as shown in the line graph. As you can see, it takes 63 minutes to fully charge the Vivo X70 Pro, which is not fast, but if you want to talk about fast power replenishment scenarios, the X70 Pro can replenish more than half of the power in half an hour, which is also sufficient to use.

The design language of the vivo X70 Pro’s image module is called “Ting Bu Yun Steps,” and the flash and parameters nameplate are slightly spaced from the camera area, so it’s The parameter plate bears the number 16-125, which refers to the focal lengths covered by the X70 Pro image module, which range from ultra-wide angle to wide-angle, medium-focus portrait, to five times telephoto. The X70 Pro’s four cameras are reasonably articulated, which in theory can result in better zoom articulation and smoothness.

The classic Zeiss blue logo and the red T* coating logo on the top left of the module represent Vivo’s close collaboration with the German optical giant, which will improve glare control and ghosting on the X70 Pro. Furthermore, the X70 Pro employs the same Vivo V1 chip as the top flagship X70 Pro. According to Vivo, this chip includes an AI system that optimizes image, display, and even game graphics.

I use down, and I believe that V1 in the image help is particularly obvious, especially for HDR synthesis and the night scene algorithm, which are not insignificant benefits.

The Zeiss coating provides a noticeable improvement. The image below depicts a typical large backlit scene; the high brightness when shooting directly into the sun can easily cause ghosting and flare. However, we can see that the vivo X70 Pro’s glare control is nearly perfect, and with HDR accelerated by the vivo V1 chip, the overall highlight suppression and dark details are excellent, and the backlit building textures are clearly visible. The overall tolerance is acceptable, and the colors are in the typical Vivo style.50mm lens sample

In the night scene, the main camera of Vivo X70 Pro, with the IMX766V base and the acceleration of Vivo V1 chip, the overall imaging is quite excellent, especially in the dark sky noise processing, Vivo X70 Pro is quite clean, while the sharpness and sharpening traces of the entire photo is also quite well controlled, very pleasing.

The 50mm medium focal length lens is also stress-free for night shots, thanks to its excellent image purity and forgiveness. It is worth noting that few cell phone manufacturers invest in better hardware in this focal length because the 50mm equivalent 2x zoom does not dominate the market. The Vivo X70 Pro compensates for this and deserves high praise.50mm lens sample However, the telephoto end of the Vivo X70 Pro performs significantly worse than other lenses in low-light situations.

The image performance is fine with normal activation, with a little more noise but still within the available range.Telephoto Lens Sample Images

However, the aperture of this lens is only f/3.4, which is considered relatively small on the phone; the smaller aperture causes it to occasionally be unable to open in low light conditions, and when the phone calls other lenses for cropping, the image quality suffers noticeably. This is the same as this year’s iPhone 13 Pro series, and may be a bottleneck in the phone’s telephoto problem. The X70 Pro, like the Vivo X70 Pro, has a variety of built-in portrait styles, four of which are Zeiss classic lens effects. Biotar lens style is Zeiss classic spin focus effect, X70 Pro based on portrait recognition algorithm, in V1 chip acceleration in the realization of background bokeh, and will be out-of-focus spot for a certain rotation, the actual effect is quite good, is the author’s most recommended A lens style.

If you prefer more beautiful night scenes, the Planar lens style is for you.

Solid-colored Android phones are rare in this day and age, and white, which is even more difficult and expensive to produce, is rarely attempted by manufacturers. The X70 Pro is the only one available.

Furthermore, the continued strength of Vivo’s image capability in recent years, and then this year’s Zeiss V1 chip in the hardware level, so that the X70 Pro’s image capability has also reached the top of the same price level, if the subsequent can make improvements for telephoto performance in low light, Vivo X70 Pro’s market competitiveness will be very high.
