This week, Vivo launched its flagship Vivo X00 series in India, and part of it is the Vivo X100 Pro, which I had the opportunity to try out for a few weeks. Vivo had set its main goal of making smartphone cameras excellent. It produced unique images with its ZEISS lens and Vivo’s signature V3 chip, especially for portraits and sunsets. Additionally, it also has a 5,400 mAh battery, 16 GB of RAM, and an 8T LTPO AMOLED display. This smartphone is priced at Rs. 89,999 in India, but is it really expensive? We have reviewed it in detail, but before you read, here we have presented a quick review of this phone in 5 points.

Vivo X100: Design and Build

The Vivo X100 Pro has a sleek design and a tall form factor, which means the device is very easy to hold. On the back of the Vivo X100 Pro, the most noticeable design element is the camera module, which continues the round camera design of the Vivo X90 series.

There is a sleek metal bezel around the camera module, which is meant to mimic the sun’s halo. Because of this, you will notice that the bezel is thin all the way around but slightly thicker towards the bottom of the camera module. Personally, the unevenness of the bezel bothers me a bit, but there’s nothing a cover (which also comes in the box) can do to fix that.

I got the Asteroid Black color design. In dull light, it appears matte-black, but when some light shines on the rear of the phone, you can see a tiny shimmer, which gives a wonderful pizzazz to the design.

The 6.78-inch screen of the Vivo X100 Pro has an 8T LTPO AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The LTPO display adjusts the refresh rate automatically based on usage, making it more energy efficient. The display is also bright, with a maximum brightness of 3,000 nits. The display is not fully flat and has a curved edge, which I appreciate for a better viewing experience and a better grip when holding the device.

Vivo X100 Pro: Camera

The camera of the Vivo X100 Pro is rather nice. The camera on the Vivo X100 Pro is, unsurprisingly, its best feature. It has a 50MP primary camera along with a unique periscope zoom camera. With a 100mm lens in front of a 50MP sensor, this zoom camera is one of a kind and has been certified by Zeiss APO. It also employs Vivo’s latest 6nm V3 imaging chip and features a 50 MP ultrawide lens. It has a 32 MP front camera for selfies.

Barring low-light images, the Vivo X100 Pro is capable of delivering good photos, albeit slightly oversaturated photos, in all scenarios. Images are clear and have bright colors. Portrait mode also works well, although it sometimes struggles with background separation. However, overall, the Vivo X100 Pro will give you very social media-friendly photos that look bright, colorful, and sharp.

Vivo X100 Pro: Performance and Battery Life

The MediaTek Dimensity 9300 SoC that powers the Vivo X100 Pro delivers excellent performance. I didn’t encounter any problems, whether transferring between other apps or even playing Asphalt 9 on the gadget, during the few weeks I had it. Funtouch OS 14 improves the device’s performance with a clean, bloatware-free user experience.

Although the Dimensity 9300 SoC and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 perform nearly identically in real-world scenarios, they most likely lag slightly in terms of battery life. There is a 5,400 mAh battery included with the Vivo X100 Pro. The amount of power backup the battery provided me with over the day was not very impressive, even considering its size.

The Vivo X100 Pro hardly lasted me a day on a single charge. The Vivo X100 Pro battery would only last me about 15 hours when I used the camera app a lot and occasionally switched between a few social media apps. But the phone’s support for 100W rapid charging is a redeeming grace. The phone can be charged from 0% to 50% in around 15 minutes by plugging it into the charger (which is included in the box).

Who should buy the Vivo X100 Pro?

Vivo The UI of the phone is also bloatware-free, so that’s always an added bonus. So, is this smartphone for you, the handyman? Yes, it definitely is. If you’re someone who has a budget to spare, isn’t always on the go (because, battery!), and a good camera is at the heart of what you need from a smartphone, then the X100 Pro is for you.
