The Vivo X50 Pro Plus has excellent cameras, but they are not at Huawei or Xiaomi's levels

The cameras in the Vivo X50 Pro Plus live up to the hype, according to DxOMark. Vivo's latest flagship packs four rear-facing cameras, including a 50 MP primary sensor, but it just misses out on dethroning the Mi 10 Ultra. Similarly, it falls short of the camera performance of the Huawei P40 Pro, too.

Vivo unveiled the X50 series in June, but it has taken the X50 Pro and X50 Pro Plus a few months to get into the hands of reviewers. Now, DxOMark has put the latter through its paces and has awarded it a score of 127, its third-highest to date. The X50 Pro Plus has some impressive specifications on paper, to say the least. Vivo has equipped the device with a 50 MP and 1/1.31-inch Samsung ISOCELL GN1 primary sensor, a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle camera with a 1/3.4-inch sensor, and a 32 MP telephoto camera, along with a 13 MP periscope zoom lens. The device can record videos in up to 8K too.

According to DxOMark, the X50 Pro Plus accurately exposes videos, while keeping image noise to a minimum. The device also quickly focuses on objects and efficiently tracks them thanks to its effective stabilisation methods. The X50 Pro Plus maintains high levels of detail when taking videos or photos, too. Additionally, the cameras offer wide dynamic range, accurate white balance and balanced colours.

DxOMark finds fault with ghosting, colour casts and occasional artefacts, though. Overall, DxOMark thinks that the X50 Pro Plus almost matches the capabilities of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and Huawei P40 Pro, its two preferred smartphones at the time of writing. Ultimately, the X50 Pro Plus falls a few points short of both devices in both camera and video performance, although it outperforms the best of what Apple and Samsung currently sell.
