Vivo X Fold Display test
Source: DxOMark English
The Vivo X Fold main screen display performed well in our tests, particularly in color, and in artifacts, where it is at the top of the charts among all devices in our database thus far. The Vivo X Fold display really stood out in its consistent color fidelity, including skin tones, in all lighting environments and use cases. The device’s color score was just shy of the current top score. Further, the device ships with an anti-reflective film that not only reduces the visibility of the main screen’s crease but also improves readability in all lighting conditions, particularly in outdoor conditions. While the device’s peak brightness was not as high as that of other devices, brightness was well-managed thanks to the anti-reflective film and tuning. Where the device falters, however, is in its control of motion and of touch, with duplications, frequent frame drops, and a lack of smoothness affecting user satisfaction, particularly when gaming.

Vivo X Fold Audio test
Source: DxOMark English
With a DXOMARK Audio score of 132, the Vivo X Fold performed well overall in our tests. While it proved to be an outstanding device for recording —thanks to the sheer wideness of its stereo recordings — playback results were just above average, leaving the testers wanting more, considering the X Fold’s dimensions and price point. In audio playback, our experts were satisfied with a deep low-end rendition complimenting an experience that was as equally pleasant in music listening as it was in movie-watching or gaming. However, the tonal balance was inconsistent depending on content and volume, and while the stereo wideness was perfectly good, one could have hoped for even better. The X Fold truly shone in recording, and while it was best with the main camera, results were good with the front camera and memo app as well. Audio recordings were exceptionally immersive, thanks to an outstanding stereo wideness both in landscape and portrait orientations when unfolded, and offered a very pleasant and natural sound signature. The Vivo also comes with an audio zoom feature that is useful in certain situations. However, our experts found that it could benefit from some adjustments.

Vivo X Fold First Impressions: Better Than the Samsung Galaxy Fold?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Vivo X Fold is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, and runs on Android 12 with Vivo's OriginOS Ocean (not Funtouch OS) skin. It comes equipped with a 4,600mAh battery that claims to be able to charge fully in just 37 minutes owing to the 66W wired charging. It can also charge wirelessly at 50W and supports reverse wireless charging at 10W. Despite the X Fold being Vivo's first-generation foldable phone, it is a well-crafted piece of technology that seems very sophisticated. Most of the big concerns that come with a foldable smartphone seem to be addressed here such as the cameras, hinge mechanism, and a premium appearance and feel. While Vivo has no plans as of now to launch the X Fold in India, it would be fantastic if it did as it would mean more choices for the consumer, which is always a good thing.

Vivo X Fold Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Vivo X Fold smartphone can’t be considered as yet another foldable phone that offers a flagship feature. The phone arrives with a pretty refreshing feel compared to other brands. From the appearance to its performance, everything is top-notch. It got a massive screen with a faster refresh rate, the camera quality is fascinating, processing power is also superb, and battery optimization is worth noting. Long story short, the Vivo X Fold smartphone is a complete package of features and specs. But at the same time, there are several other options present in the foldable market too. If you are looking for a bigger battery, you can check out the Mi Mix Fold. But make the final decision according to your preference and needs.

The Vivo X Fold Puts The "Wow" Back In Folding Phones
Source: MrMobile English
When I review a smartphone that isn’t offered in my part of the world, the question I’m usually trying to answer is: do I wish it *was*? Late last year, Oppo released a smartphone for which my answer was a resounding “yes:” a foldable called the Find N that blended the best of large- and small-format folding phones. For 2022, Oppo’s sister brand Vivo has gone the opposite direction – with a massive and extravagant smartphone called the Vivo X Fold. "Into The Fold" is all about exploring all the different kinds of flexible-display devices, and after a week with the Vivo X Fold I’ve found it gets so much right that if it were offered here in the United States … I believe it would become the new go-to in full-size foldables.

Vivo X Fold Plus Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
So far, the company hasn’t made any statement regarding the official release of the Vivo X Fold Plus smartphone to the global market. But they are exploring their regional mainland China market first so that they can cater to a wider range of users in the upcoming years. But if you prefer Vivo camera quality and want to try the flagship-level foldable smartphone experience, the X Fold+ is a brilliant deal. On the other hand, X Fold+ is a great upgrade from the previous Vivo X Fold as it replaces the SD 8 Gen 1 to SD 8+ Gen 1, which does boost overall performance to some extent. But still, there are tons of different options in the foldable smartphone range available. You can check out Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 as it brings well-rounded features in a decent price range.

80% Vivo X Fold 2 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Vivo X Fold 2 is a confident foldable that combines strong performance, impressive battery life, and a capable camera. There are downsides. The leather finish looks the part, but the foldable as a whole is bigger and bulkier than other recent rivals. As it’s China-only you’ll have to deal with awkward imports and no Google out of the box, plus other little performance annoyances around background apps or that strange failure of the ultrawide camera in low light. Still, put up with those minor headaches and this is a pretty fantastic foldable that shows Samsung what it has to keep up with.

Source: Android Central English
The Vivo X Fold 2 feels about as great as a foldable phone should with its big cover screen and massive main display. Performance doesn't disappoint, as it keeps up with the best Android phones. If it weren't for limited availability and a surprising downgrade in the camera, this could have been the best foldable phone of the year.

vivo X Fold 2 Review
Source: Yugatech English
In conclusion, The vivo X Fold 2 is an exceptional device that successfully bridges the gap between smartphones and tablets. Its foldable design is not just a gimmick; it’s a genuinely useful feature that enhances productivity and entertainment. However, it’s essential to consider the cost. The vivo X Fold 2 is a premium device, and its price reflects that. It’s not for everyone, but for those who are willing to invest in a cutting-edge piece of technology, it’s one of the best foldable phones out there. In China it’s the 256GB variant is available for CNY 8,999, and CNY 9,999 for the 512GB configuration; which roughly converts to PHP 68,700 and PHP 76,000. At the end of the day, the vivo X Fold2 is not without its flaws. The crease in the display is still visible, though it’s not a deal-breaker especially for early foldable adopters.

90% vivo X Fold2 review
Source: GSM Arena English
Vivo definitely outdid itself with the X Fold2. It's by far one of the best foldables we've used as it stands out with exceptional displays (even the internal screen has a smaller-than-usual crease), great battery life, nice hinge design and not one but two ultrasonic fingerprint readers that work flawlessly. We find that last bit a huge advantage over the current side-mounted readers in today's foldables. The overall camera experience isn't bad either. It's not ideal, but it's mostly on par with what the competition offers. We would have liked a better selfie and further zoom reach (3x at least), but otherwise, the quality is solid during the day and at night. We also wished for a better stereo speaker setup, although we understand that not everyone would mind the speakers as they are.

The vivo X Flip might be the best clamshell foldable if you value the camera experience, while the X Fold 2 brings some unique features to the book-style form factor. Sadly, with limited availability you'll have to jump through a lot of hoops to get your hands on them.

Vivo X Fold 2 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Vivo X Fold 2 has some factors which are better than the mainstream brands, including a powerful chipset, better camera software, Zeiss optics, and a few more things here and there. This phone is a great combination of camera and performance with a foldable screen experience. Overall, if you want to purchase a premium foldable phone with great camera quality, we would consider choosing this phone over the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 for now. But if we consider the downsides, the phone won’t have anything that would severely impact the users day to day usage. However, you can still consider the downgrade since the company removes the periscope 5x optical zoom lens compared to the last year’s models like Vivo X Fold and Vivo X Fold Plus. But still, we would highly recommend you choose this phone if you want an exceptional foldable phone experience at an appropriate price tag.

Vivo X Fold 2 Hands-On: I'm Disappointed
Source: ben's gadget reviews English
The Vivo X Fold 2 is the newest foldable on the market, and I'm a bit disappointed by it — although to be fair, I have the highest standards when it comes to foldables. The X Fold 2 packs a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, two OLED screens (6.5-inch and 8-inch) with 120Hz refresh rate. There's a 4,800 mAh battery and a triple camera system headlined by a 50MP Sony IMX866 main camera. To be fair, the Vivo X Fold 2 holds up quite well against the Galaxy Z Fold 4. I'm just spoiled by the Huawei Mate X3 and Xiaomi Mix Fold 2.

88.8% Vivo X Fold3 Smartphone Review: A physics-defying, insanely light 8-inch foldable | Notebookcheck
The Vivo X Fold3 focuses more on achieving a thin and light design than on cameras or performance. The concept may very well work given that the foldable smartphone is priced attractively. Our tests show that the Vivo X Fold3 is more than just convincing.
Vivo X Fold 3 and 3 Pro Smartphones Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Vivo X Fold 3 foldable smartphone brings top-end specs and features according to the 2024 standards. So, if you are looking for a true flagship foldable smartphone experience, the Fold 3 Pro would be a great choice. You will receive almost everything from Lecia optics to seamless software configuration. The phone has an impressive display that can support advanced gameplay and streaming side-by-side. But if you don’t want to spend much on the hardware and want the foldable phone feel, then the Vivo X Fold 3 could be a better deal. At the same time, the phone does lack a few points when compared to the Pro sibling. In our opinion, the Vivo X Fold 3 should have the same hardware configuration as the Pro model. But anyway, the phone didn’t hold back the users from exploring the goodness of extreme gaming performance and delivers amazing camera results. However, both of the models are most likely unavailable in the global smartphone market.

Vivo X Fold3 Pro Review: All You Need to Know Before You Buy
Source: Igeekphone English
Overall, vivo X Fold3 Pro has found the best balance between thinness and versatility without compromising on user experience. It can be regarded as the most perfect thin and light folding flagship in all aspects to date, even if it is useless. It has an X-axis horizontal linear motor, but these materials, which can only be seen on straight-screen phones, are enough to make it firmly sit on the throne of “folding overlord” in my heart.

Vivo:


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 730: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 30% faster than the Adreno 660 in the Snapdragon 888 SoC. For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in late 2021.

Qualcomm Adreno 740: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 730 in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and first benchmarks show that the GPU can beat the Apple A16 iGPU (previously the fastest smartphone GPU). 

Qualcomm Adreno 750: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 7340 in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and first benchmarks show that the GPU can beat the Apple A17 Pro iGPU.

No weight comment found (one expected)!


74.98%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
