Reviews for the Vivo X50 Pro

83.9% Vivo X50 Pro Smartphone Review - Does the "revolutionary" gimbal camera make a difference? | Notebookcheck
The Vivo X50 Pro's highlight and unique selling point is its gimbal camera system that is supposed to stabilize video recordings much better than a traditional OIS. Find out whether the gimbal-like camera in Vivo's latest smartphone offers a real benefit or whether it is nothing but marketing in our review.
80% Vivo X50 Pro review: Beyond mid-range, beyond gimbals
Source: Hardware Zone English
It’s neither a true mid-range, nor a true flagship, and that’s because it doesn’t need to be either. If you want a premium midrange phone, the X50 Pro is a nice half-step upgrade without going too deeply into the territory of flagship prices. If you’re looking at it as a budget flagship option, it’s not too far away from flagship-tier benchmarks, making it an easy half-step down from increasingly expensive higher-end mobiles. Combine that with its 5G readiness, the Vivo X50 Pro is a viable option for both mid-range and flagship users who want a phone that can last long enough to see and try 5G, without having to spend too much money, or having to compromise excessively on photography and phone performance.

Vivo X50 Pro Review

The Vivo X50 Pro is a bang for a buck. From a stunning display to the best camera this device has everything you want. It could have been better if it had the Snapdragon 865 processor however the 765G does the job well too. If you are someone who is mainly looking for a smartphone with an amazing camera and a stunning display for watching videos and more then the Vivo X50 Pro is the perfect choice for you.

The Vivo X50 Pro will live and die by its camera. Elsewhere, this is a decent upper-mid-range phone with solid specs, slick design, and so-so software. But if you want in-camera gimbal stabilisation for videos or low light photography, this is the only game in town. Throw in the 5x optical zoom periscope, the portrait lens, and wide-angle and it’s easy to see the appeal. Still, for many this camera oomph will be overkill, so decide carefully. If you’re unlikely to make the most of it then there are plenty of other Snapdragon 765G phones that offer similar specs for less outside of photography.

Yes, we get it! Vivo X50 Pro is the first device to feature a gimbal and most of the costs are invested here. Opting Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform could have added extra punch to the device at this price point since there are not many options available in this segment. However, at a flagship price, this device offers a mid-range device performance.

The Vivo X50 Pro is one of the surprise packages of the year, providing cutting edge camera technology and a highly desirable design for a mid-market price. Clunky software and availability quirks keep it from being an outright elite contender, but anyone looking for a stylish and great-value all-rounder with a distinctive flavour should add it to their shortlist.

Review – Vivo X50 Pro: The better X50 Pro to purchase

Vivo X50 Pro review: A solid all-rounder for camera lovers
Source: CNet English
The Vivo X50 Pro is a midrange phone on the higher end of that spectrum and has many of the trappings of an enticing flagship. Starting at approximately $670, you get a crystalline screen, 5G, a powerful battery, a speedy display and fast charging. But the phone also has a camera feature that undeniably distinguishes it from its rivals. The X50 Pro is the world's first mass-produced phone with a built-in gimbal camera system that allows you to capture smooth, fast-action video with the click of a button. Out of Vivo's trio of X50 handsets -- which the Chinese phone-maker is marketing as a professional photography flagship -- the X50 Pro is the only one to boast this futuristic feature. But Vivo did make a few compromises. For instance, it lacks stereo speakers (a big drawback for music lovers like myself) and it isn't water resistant, which many phones of this class are. It also has a midrange processor (Snapdragon 765G) instead of the most advanced chipset available.

vivo X50 Pro Unboxing, Review: Gimbal Magic
Source: Unbox English
vivo’s done a great job with their X50 Pro, and is easily one of the best flagships I’ve tested so far this year. The phone’s exterior is incredibly well built and certainly contains flagship pedigree. The gimbals on the main camera might be gimmicky at first glance, but it certainly delivers the goods.

Source: Androidcommunity.com English
It is refreshing to see Vivo make a serious attempt to break away from gimmicks and offer real value to the smartphone users. The Vivo X50 Pro’s Gimbal Camera System works for us and to be very honest, we neither recommend nor diss it. Available for INR 49,990 in India or $660, which slightly high-end for the region. Global pricing and availability are awaited.

The Vivo X50 Pro is the first smartphone to feature built-in gimbal stabilisation. While this is a first-gen product, it does the job quite well. Video stabilisation was quite good and the gimbal system does make it super easy to take shots with Night mode. Hopefully, this feature will become more common in the future.

Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 49,000, the Vivo X50 Pro is a premium smartphone with great cameras, dazzling display, decent performance and good on-battery time. It is a complete package, if you can live with its underwhelming user interface which is the only thing that let down this otherwise impressive smartphone. Moreover, it has 5G network support, so you are covered for future, too.

Chinese phone-maker Vivo recently unveiled its X50 series, marking the launch of its first global flagship this year. Vivo, which is one of the top 10 phone manufacturers by market share despite being relatively unknown in the West, advertises its latest phone as a "professional photography flagship." It introduces an internal gimbal camera system to the series, which it's selling outside China for the first time.

Vivo X50 Pro: Review | Photography Truly Redefined
Source: Exhibit.tech English
Now, let’s sum this up and see if the X50 Pro should be a hit or a miss. Despite being a “pro” the X50 Pro does not use the top-notch processor. However, does a pretty decent job when used for day to day activities and also while multitasking. With the first of its kind Gimble Stabilization system and fancy camera setup, you can consider buying this phone if you’re a photography enthusiast but if not, then you can afford to give this a miss and consider an OnePlus 8 Pro, Moto Edge, or the Iqoo 3.

The Vivo X50 Pro impressed me because of its remarkable gimbal camera technology. For content creators and vloggers, the X50 Pro can prove to be a sound investment. But the phone is not for everyone, especially those who will never use the X50 Pro’s advanced video capturing features. If you remove the gimbal camera tech from the X50 Pro, the device is just like any other smartphone. At Rs 49,990, the X50 P5o is certainly an expensive smartphone. But if you are someone who is interested in advanced video capturing a smartphone, go ahead and buy the X50 Pro.

Yet, Vivo's decision to not equip the phone with a flagship chipset from the Snapdragon 800 series may eventually see the X50 Pro lose the fight to flagships from Xiaomi, OnePlus and Realme. But then again, Indian buyers in the past have shown the propensity to rise above spec sheets and benchmark results, and invest on refinement in design and camera technologies. If that ends up being the case again, then Vivo might just have a major hit on its hand.

As Vivo's first push into wider markets, we think the X50 Pro is a bit of a revelation. It delivers a first-of-its-kind gimbal stabilisation system, a decent overall camera setup, and solid build. Some software foibles hold it back at this stage, plus we don't know the pricing information, but as such adaptations get ironed out in the future it should spell success.

Comment

Model:

The Vivo X50 Pro has entered the market, bringing together a great design with a high-quality camera system. The build quality of this device definitely belies the price. From the in-hand feel to the utterly luxurious finish on the back panel, the Vivo X50 Pro definitely oozes style and is nothing short of premium. While the glass sandwich design has become the de-facto choice for smartphones, it does not necessarily mean that they are all the same. Vivo has opted for a satin-soft finish with a frosted glass back that feels rather familiar yet refreshing. As a matter of fact, it is reminiscent of the pearlescent white finish on the OnePlus 6. In addition, the soft finish also does not collect fingerprints and smudges easily, which is definitely an added advantage of this smartphone.

The overall frame of the phone is made from aluminium, with the power key and volume rocker situated on the right side of the phone. Again, the fit and finish here is absolutely top notch, and the buttons have just the right amount of feedback. Apart from that, there is also a standard USB Type-C port along the bottom edge, next to the speakerphone grille. However, it should be noted that there is no headphone jack on the Vivo X50 Pro. In terms of its display, this phone has been equipped with a 6.56-inch Full-HD+ OLED display with slim bezels on all sides. There is also a punch hole for the front facing camera. In addition, the 90Hz panel ensures that UI navigation is nice and smooth for an excellent user experience. As for the overall external design, the X50 Pro sports Schott’s tempered glass for protection against scratches and drops.

As for its processor, the Vivo X50 Pro carries a Snapdragon 765G chipset that delivers great real-world usage performance. In terms of its battery, the phone has been incorporated with a 4,315mAh battery and a 33W charger which charges 30 percent of the battery within 15 minutes. However, the phone does not support wireless charging. Looking at its camera setup, the Vivo X50 Pro carries a quad-camera system that includes a 48MP main camera, an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide sensor, a 13MP telephoto portrait lens and an 8MP telephoto lens. It is worth noting that the entire assembly is five times the size of a standard OIS module and offers a degree of stabilization that is hard to find on competing hardware.

The interesting fact about the camera setup on this phone is that the primary shooter sports a unique gimbal system that shifts the lens along two axis using electromagnetic induction. Overall, the 48MP Sony IMX598 was found to capture good-looking pictures outdoors. The image is definitely sharp, and noise levels are fairly under control. While colours are sometimes over-saturated, there is an absolutely decent dynamic range. As for the selfie camera, the Vivo X50 Pro sports a 32MP selfie shooter. Overall, this phone definitely has its own plus and minus points to be considered based on the user’s need and choice.
