Reviews for the Vivo X51 5G

84.7% Vivo X51 5G Review - The smartphone with gimbal camera for Europe | Notebookcheck
Vivo launches the X51 5G in Europe, which is nominally the X50 Pro already known from Asia. Besides software modifications and an optimized camera, the review reveals further positive improvements and enriches the market with an exciting alternative.
Vivo X51 5G Selfie review: Ready for its closeup
Source: DxOMark English
The Vivo X51 5G can produce satisfying selfies when used with an awareness of its limitations. With the phone fairly close to the subject, it captures detailed, nicely exposed photos with pleasant color and wide dynamic range. However, selfie-stick users will be disappointed to find themselves in soft focus, as the focus distance and narrow depth of field makes for a relatively tight sweet spot in terms of sharpness. Video performance is let down by poor stabilization and narrow dynamic range, so serious vloggers will likely be better served by other options.

Vivo X51 5G Camera review: 4 lenses with a solid zoom
Source: DxOMark English
Although positioned towards the top end of the mid-range price bracket, the inclusion of a quad camera makes the Vivo’s X51 5G a good value proposition. Its photography performance is more than competent, too, with no major weaknesses identified in our tests. Dual tele-lenses makes it a good option for portraits at 50 mm and longer-range zoom shots, too. Pleasant skin tones and wide depth of field also make it easy to recommend for those shooting lots of people pictures, but serious portrait photographers would appreciate better bokeh simulation.

80% Vivo X51 5G review: the premium mid-range market gets even more crowded
Source: T3 English
The Vivo X51 5G is worth investigating if you're after a phone that gives you premium-level specs, performance and camera quality without costing you a huge amount of money. It's still relatively expensive, but this is a phone that has plenty listed in the positives column.

Vivo X51 Display review: Impressive color accuracy
Source: DxOMark English
The Vivo X51 holds up well overall, even against some devices that are more expensive. The screen displays appropriate brightness under most conditions, though it could be a little brighter indoors and outdoors in the shade. The color rendering is fairly accurate across many uses, even with the blue light filter on. Its biggest drawbacks are for video; HDR10 content is much too dark, which has a big impact on the viewing experience. It also showed weaknesses in the touch attribute, where a lack of smoothness impaired the experiences of browsing and gaming.

Beautiful to look at, the X51 has a fantastic camera arrangement and is a joy to hold and use. It marks highly for everything, but the price is quite high when compared to the competition.

80% Vivo X51 review: Gimbal goodness
Source: Pocket Lint English
As Vivo's first push into wider markets, we think the X51 - which was called the X50 Pro at its eastern launch - is a bit of a revelation. It delivers an impressive gimbal stabilisation system, a decent overall camera setup, and solid build. The battery isn't class-leading, but at this price and with these features - plus the software has been improved for this launch - it looks like a future success for Vivo. Well, if the name wasn't so uninspired.

Is the Vivo X51 a good phone? Most certainly, with a solid camera, beautiful display, and phenomenal design. But at this price the X51 doesn't feel competitive. It's a great phone, but it's bad value.

80% Vivo X51 5G review
Source: Techradar English
Vivo loves to push advanced features out there before the competition. The Vivo X51 5G is a vehicle for its ‘gimbal’ camera, which offers superb low-light performance and super-stable video. It’s a great advancement, but the price may seem a little high for a phone with a mid-tier CPU, even if it is a great one.

Hands on: Vivo X51 5G Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Vivo X51 5G is a device packed with high-end features. The quad camera setup is made even more impressive by the built-in gimbal, while the addition of a 90Hz refresh rate and 5G makes this phone feel modern and future proof. The biggest downside here is the £749 price tag, elevating the phone beyond more recognisable household names, such as OnePlus and the Google Pixel. That said, it's difficult to complain of a lack of features with the Vivo X51 5G.
