Reviews for the Vivo X Fold

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.

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.

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

Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A510 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6e modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP.

This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.311 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
