Vivo X80 Pro

The latest Chinese smartphone brand to arrive in Portugal is walking on its toes, but suddenly it has gone under the skin of the wolf. Vivo only had modest smartphones for sale, but the summer promises to heat up for the competition – that is, if anyone is willing to spend 1300 euros on the X80 Pro, when the best Galaxy and iPhone are on the next stand, both priced or more accessible.

Two minimum wages
Note that Vivo wants to make a statement with the X80 Pro; exclusivity is based on price, i.e. if a brand offers a mobile phone for (much) more than a thousand euros, it creates the idea that it has an object of desire, inaccessible to the most people, but, at the same time, a status symbol that this majority also wants access to.

The X80 Pro cannot be understood as a smartphone that arrives in Portugal to become a sales champion – hardly a (still) unknown brand will be able to convince consumers to spend two minimum wages on a phone.

Movies in the palm of your hand
But market dynamics are one thing, and the value of a mobile phone is another. The X80 Pro is very good in the features highlighted by Vivo: the image, both in photos and in video. In fact, the official presentation, which took place in Berlin (and where PCGuia was located), revolved around these two values, also because the smartphone was created with the help of Zeiss. In fact, the X80 Pro is more like a camera capable of making calls.

In the video, therefore, the partnership with the German brand of lenses and images, is noticeable and very much in Cinematic mode: it really feels like recording a film with a professional camera, even if we are limited to 1080p at 24h fps, when the maximum reached by the mobile phone is 8K at 30 fps.

Hot Hot…
Something impressive to use are also the Ultra and Horizon Line image stabilization modes – the latter “holds” the image horizontally, even if we rotate the phone. However, we note that the prolonged use of these resources will cause the X80 Pro to heat up a little more than expected and that the autonomy will start to decrease considerably. In general performance, it is a model with results in line with its direct rivals, which is not surprising: it has one of the best current processors: the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
