Vivo X70 Pro Price in Pakistan - Mobile Pricex

Vivo did not wait until next year and released another update to the flagship line of its camera phones just 6 months after the announcement of the Vivo X60 Pro. No matter how excellent the previous flagship was, it was already noticeably inferior in a number of characteristics to modern devices of this price category. Even in the X50 Pro line, we noted a completely inappropriate ERM vibration motor in the premium segment, which spoiled the overall pleasant impression of a good smartphone. But the company was in no hurry to part with it in the updated model.

In addition, 48 megapixels, a 1/2 " sensor and a double optical zoom are not exactly the characteristics that you expect from a camera phone in 2021. Not that the number of megapixels made any difference, but in the X60 Pro, it directly affected the sensor size and, as a result, the aperture of the entire camera. In addition, in Vivo X60 Pro, the company did not change the successful design of the previous model. There were no complaints about it, but I would like to see the continuation of a good idea, and not its operation.

Literally all these comments were taken into account in the new Vivo X70 Pro. Here, for the first time since the Vivo NEX3, a linear vibration motor has appeared. The main camera uses a relatively large 50-megapixel sensor from Sony with illuminated Zeiss optics, and the telephoto lens now has a 5x optical zoom. In the end, the design of the camera block has changed and now it looks fresher and more solid. Add to this a more capacious battery, 44W fast charging, and updated radio modules, and we get a really good modern flagship camera phone.

Of course, some shortcomings remained, something could have been improved or completely removed, but we'll talk about all this in more detail in the review.

Vivo X70 Pro review. Premium design and general hardware information

Vivo continues to ignore current trends to reduce the cost/deterioration of the configuration of its smartphones, delivering X70 Pro in a large solid package made of thick high-quality cardboard:

This seemingly small detail actually plays an important role in the perception of the product. Unpacking a smartphone is a pleasure, which is becoming a rarity for modern flagships. Complete headphones are very convenient because of their compact size. The sound quality is quite good as for a complete headset, there is quite a lot of bass.

The silicone case here is the most common. Thanks to the protruding sides, it perfectly protects both the camera unit and the screen:

Vivo X70 Pro, like all previous devices of this line, is distinguished by attention to detail. The first thing that catches your eye is, of course, the color and coating of the back cover. It uses tempered frosted glass, which tactilely resembles very fine sandpaper. The color of the cover changes from emerald to lavender depending on the lighting and viewing angle (note the color of the smartphone in all the photos in this review).

This coating does not get dirty or scratch at all. Therefore, there is no need to wear a case to preserve the marketable appearance of the smartphone-only if you are afraid of breaking the glass. The frame is made of metal, but the upper end is traditionally made of glass for the X-series:

Top edge of vivo x70 pro

The engraved Vivo logo, as before, casts a shadow under the glass. The camera block looks even more professional and resembles the design of Huawei P40 Pro cameras in style, only instead of a solid glass block, a decorative metal insert is used here:

X70 pro camera block

I am also pleased with the absence of various ridiculous inscriptions in the style of "100x space zoom". On the block, we see only the traditional designations for lenses — the range of focal lengths (16-125 mm) and relative holes (f/1.75-3.4), as well as the brand Zeiss ' red letter T with an asterisk, implying a multi-layer coating of lenses (we'll talk about this later).

It is only necessary to explain a little the last inscription-Zeiss Vario-Tessar.

Tessar is the name of a special lens design from Zeiss, developed more than 100 years ago. These lenses consisted of 4 lenses (from other Greek. "tesseres" — four), two of which were glued together. Such a simple design provided a sharp image and good correction of various aberrations (optical distortions). For a long time, Zeiss did not change the design itself, but only improved the optical properties of the glasses.

Then various modifications of this design began to appear. For example, the Apo-Tessars lenses used special glass that better coped with chromatic distortion, and the Pro-Tessars lenses were made in the form of a "constructor" that allowed you to change the focal length by replacing one of the elements.

After some time, the Vario-Tessar lens also appeared, the design of which no longer had almost anything in common with the famous Tessar. These were zoom lenses, consisting of a large number of lenses and able to smoothly change their focal length. And the word Tessar in the name was used purely symbolically, meaning supposedly excellent characteristics at an affordable price, as in the original Tessar.

As you can imagine, on smartphones Vario-Tessar is an even more conventional term, because there is not even a zoom lens, not to mention the original design of Tessar. Today, smartphone lenses consist of 5-7 lenses, and "zoom" is achieved by switching between cameras. In other words, the Vario-Tessar on the Vivo X70 Pro case can simply be perceived as a good lens, according to Zeiss, nothing more.

But back to the design of the smartphone. Thanks to its slim body and relatively narrow screen (20:9 aspect ratio), the Vivo X70 Pro fits comfortably in your hand:

All keys are placed on the right. At the top is an additional microphone for noise reduction and, unexpectedly, an IR port for controlling household appliances:

The smartphone has a proprietary application "Smart Remote control", in which you can add various household appliances:

The choice of brands is huge, setting up takes just a couple of seconds, after which you can create separate shortcuts on the main screen for each remote control. Thus, the smartphone turns into a control center for household appliances. Very convenient function. On the lower side there is a dual SIM card slot (memory cards are not supported), a main microphone, a USB-C connector and a speaker:

The lower edge of the vivo x70 pro

There is a good quality rubber seal on the SIM card tray. Moisture protection is not officially stated here, but the company clearly tried to protect the smartphone from accidental penetration of water.

Unfortunately, there is no stereo sound on the Vivo X70 Pro and this is one of the main disadvantages of this device. The main speaker is quite loud, but in terms of sound quality, it is inferior to the more expensive flagships from Samsung or Apple. It lacks bass and volume.

Things are much better with wireless audio. Vivo X70 Pro supports all popular codecs, including aptX HD and aptX Adaptive. There is also a proprietary technology for adapting sound to the physiological characteristics of the listener (audio metry with subsequent correction of the volume of various frequencies).:

Sound effects on vivo x70 pro

The smartphone uses Bluetooth 5.2, but there is no support for the new LE Audio protocol and LC3 codec. There is also no support for Dolby Atmos technology. Almost the entire front panel of the Vivo X70 Pro is occupied by an AMOLED screen with a small O-shaped cutout in the center for a selfie camera:

Vivo x70 pro screen

Light and proximity sensors were hidden under the screen. It is important to emphasize that the classic sensor is used here, not its virtual counterpart. Therefore, the screen lock function during a call works perfectly.

Another light sensor is installed at the back near the cameras. More precisely, it is a spectrometer for better determining the white balance in images, but the smartphone also uses it to control auto brightness. The optical fingerprint scanner is located under the screen close to the bottom edge, which is why it is not very convenient to reach your thumb from the power button to the sensor:

Part of this inconvenience can be smoothed out by stopping using the power button altogether and activating the screen on and off with a double tap in the smartphone settings. The scanner itself works well — it quickly and stably recognizes fingerprints if there is no moisture or dirt between the screen and the finger.

Additionally, you can use the face unlock function. As with previous Vivo flagships, it works as fast and stable as possible, even at high angles. It uses a selfie camera and a neural network without any additional sensors. The shell has a very convenient option that allows you to hide the notification text on the lock screen until the smartphone owner personally looks at the screen:

As already mentioned at the beginning of the review, Vivo X70 Pro was the first smartphone in the line, which has a normal vibration motor. It feels like it's most likely a small motor in the tablet case, similar to those used in Xiaomi Redmi Pro smartphones.

The vibration here is an order of magnitude more pleasant than what it was before, but you can't compare it with the tactile sensations from the Taptic Engine on the iPhone or the vibration of the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Other features include NFC for contactless payments, Wi-Fi 6 support, and a dual-frequency GPS module.:

The quality of mobile communication does not cause any complaints. Frequency aggregation is used for faster data transmission over the mobile network.

Vivo X70 Pro Screen

The smartphone has a bright 6.56 " AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2376 pixels (20:9 aspect ratio). The sharpness of the image is quite high (398 ppi), and it is very difficult to see individual pixels on small text. The screen supports the HDR10+ standard and even has a Widevine L1 certificate, but you can't watch HDR movies in the Netflix app:

Netflix playback options

The peak brightness reaches 1300 nits (when displaying HDR content), but in normal life it does not exceed 1000 nits. Visibility in the sun is excellent, the minimum brightness is comfortable for working in the dark. It uses an OLED matrix manufactured by Samsung in 2019. Harmful blue light accounts for 7.5% of the total amount of light emitted by the display. This is not a bad indicator, but, let me remind you, in the newest OLED matrices it is even better — 6.5%.

The smartphone has a software-based eye protection mode, which is actually a "sleep protection" mode, as it reduces the total amount of harmless blue light that only affects a person's circadian rhythms. There is also a dark themethat saves battery power, and an AOD mode that allows you to display the current time, notifications, and other information on the off screen. A large number of different styles are available in the settings:

The image quality is high, and the screen supports a wide color gamut. Here's what the Vivo X70 Pro's display looks like compared to the Galaxy Fold 3's screen: Separately, it is important to note the support for a high refresh rate of the image-120 Hz. In the settings, you can choose one of three operating modes::

X 70 pro screen operation modes

Intelligent switching (what others call adaptive frequency) does not work very well. In this mode, the smartphone resets the frequency to 60 Hz in Internet browsers, YouTube and many other applications.

Therefore, if you want to get the most pleasant experience possible, you should choose constant operation at 120 Hz, but then the charge consumption will increase. The Vivo X70 Pro display is curved at the edges. This looks nice, but isn't always convenient due to glare and other distortions:

The last thing you should know about is PWM or harmful flickering of the backlight. On the Vivo X50 Pro, there was a flicker reduction function (DC Dimming), but in the X70 Pro it was removed.

Vivo X70 Pro Camera Review

Periscope Tele photolens: 8 MP, 125 mm f/3.4 (5x optics), 1/4.4 " matrix, 1.0 microns, phase auto focus, optical stabilization For those who understand traditional cameras, here are the parameters of equivalent lenses. This will help you more adequately assess their actual light intensity.: The fourth column shows the ISO value that you need to shoot with a full-frame SLR camera with the specified lens in order to get the same result as a smartphone.

As you can see, the more or less high-speed camera here is only the main one — 23 mm f/7.4, in terms of aperture, it roughly corresponds to the main camera of the acclaimed Sony Xperia PRO-I. The rest of the modules really need a lot of light and / or long exposures to show a good result. This is especially true for a 125mm telephoto lens with an equivalent f/36 aperture.

The ultra-wide-angle camera has auto focus, so it can be used as a good macro lens with a relatively high resolution (12 Mp). For example, here is a picture of a tiny clockwork movement:

Watch movement photo

And this is what his macro shot looks like, taken with the Vivo X70 Pro ultra-wide-angle camera:

Using an ultra-wide-angle camera for its intended purpose, we also get a good result. With good lighting, the amount of detail and sharpness across the entire frame is acceptable. Sometimes only the algorithm for artificially expanding the dynamic range raises questions. As you can see, the capacity of tiny 1.12-micron pixels is not enough to collect a large number of photons, so the camera has to take several pictures in a row with different shutter speeds and glue the result together.

Sometimes you can see how this algorithm works in places where there is a transition from light areas to darker ones (see the light halo around the trees in the photo): Separately, it is worth praising Vivo for its natural color reproduction without the over saturated colors characteristic of smartphones:

Portrait of a dog on vivo x70 pro

The borders of the main item are defined quite accurately. Dynamic range and bokeh are added by algorithms. But the quality of the optics on the Vivo X70 Pro is really very good, and on all cameras. These are sharp glasses with high-quality illumination, which give an excellent result for a mobile camera.

For example, evaluate the following image taken with a 50 mm lens in RAW without using computational photography:

RAW image taken with a 50 mm vivo x70 pro lens

Of course, there are problems with the dynamic range here, since the pixel and lens sizes are too small, but even with the catastrophically small amount of light and a relatively high ISO value (>400), the lens produces a good result.

The telephoto lens is very much smaller than the other three cameras, so it needs a lot of light to get a good result. Also, this camera is inferior in color reproduction to the main one, since the white balance is not always selected correctly. When there is enough light, the Vivo X70 Pro is able to zoom in up to 10x without much loss of quality. This is achieved by simultaneously using multiple cameras and Pixel Shift technology (or super resolution).

Shooting the moon on vivo x70 pro

But, of course, this is 90% the work of neural networks. The telephoto lens is used only to determine the phase of the moon and the presence of clouds, and then the finished result is drawn. If you're interested in seeing what the Vivo X70 Pro's AI-less optics are capable of, here's the same moon, only shot in RAW:

A distinctive feature of the Vivo X70 Pro is shooting in Pro mode with support for RAW format on all lenses, including the periscope and ultra-wide-angle camera:

Pro mode

This is especially useful when you want to use a telephoto lens, but the camera's automation forces you to switch to the main one if the subject is too close (according to the algorithm) or there is not enough light around.

The only caveat with shooting in RAW on a 125mm lens is the presence of template noise associated with the features of the matrix. If you look closely at the last photo, you will notice this noise. Of course, algorithms are well aware of it and effectively delete it after processing " raw " files. regular colors vs zeiss

To evaluate the sharpness of the main lens, download this image to your computer, which was taken without any auxiliary algorithms (the image was taken in RAW) and study it carefully: Please note that even in the most difficult areas — the minimum number of chromatic aberrations, as well as good sharpness at the edges of the image:

Tracking objects in the frame

At the same time, you can shoot continuously at 20 frames per second. These options are quite convenient when shooting pets or children.

Vivo X70 Pro can record video with a resolution of up to 4K at 60 frames / s. You can evaluate the quality of shooting and stabilization using the following video clip: Super stabilization is also available, but only when recording in FullHD (1080p).: When recording a video, you can enable broken mode for a nice background blur, but it works well only if the main object in the frame is not moving. There are also various effects, including a special Movies mode:

Camera interface in video capture mode

Among other things, you can turn on the voice-accentuated noise reduction mode during video recording. This feature noticeably highlights voices in noisy environments. Overall, the Vivo X70 Pro camera leaves a very pleasant impression. This is a really interesting tool for those who are interested in photography. If you shoot thoughtfully with manual settings in RAW format, you will get excellent results.

Yes ,and" on the machine " smartphone copes well in most tasks.

Among the shortcomings, we can note the errors of the algorithm in portrait mode, which can, under certain conditions, instead of a beautiful blur, give strange artifacts:

Image processing artifacts

This effect is rare and only occurs in portrait mode, however. Also, sometimes the JPEG compression algorithm can give a noticeable ladder on gradients, as if the camera does not have enough color depth. Again, this is rare in complex scenes, but shooting in RAW solves all the software flaws voiced.

Vivo X70 Pro Performance and Autonomy

The smartphone runs on MediaTek's flagship 6nm Dimensity 1200 processor. 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of permanent storage (UFS 3.1 type) are available here. The Vivo X70 Pro runs fast and smoothly, and the Funtouch OS 12 shell is well optimized. It is based on Android 11 and is generally very similar to Funtouch OS 10. A detailed review of this shell will be published separately.

In the AnTuTu test, the smartphone scores 683 thousand points:

In everyday work (not stress tests), the device almost never heats up. After 30 minutes of playing PUBG at maximum settings, the temperature does not rise above 38°C. There is no time limit for recording video in 4K 60 frames/s, but when shooting for a long time (for example, half an hour of continuous recording in 4K), the smartphone can heat up to 44°C. In the synthetic test, there is a slight throttling, but in general, the performance is quite high:

With the autonomy of the Vivo X70 Pro, there are no problems. The 4450 mAh battery allows the smartphone to work for a day with very active use or for several days if the screen operation time does not exceed 3 hours a day. In the test measurement, the Vivo X70 Pro lasted 23 hours, while giving out almost 8 hours of screen operation (in adaptive mode of 120 Hz):

A complete 44W power supply unit charges your smartphone from zero to 50% in 22 minutes, with a total charge time of 58 minutes. The Vivo X70 Pro doesn't support wireless charging, but it can charge other devices connected to it by wire.

Conclusions

Vivo's X-series smartphones always leave a pleasant impression, and the new X70 Pro is no exception. First of all, it concerns the design of the smartphone, attention to detail and ergonomics. We are also very pleased with the fact that Vivo does not follow "fashion trends" and continues to supply its flagship devices with very rich equipment.

The Vivo X70 Pro camera deserves special attention. This is actually a powerful tool in the hands of a skilled photographer. As practice has shown, the partnership with Zeiss was not limited to advertising logos on the case. Here are really good sharp lenses with excellent illumination. And the matrix is very good. The smartphone provides full manual control of all cameras, and in automatic mode allows you to turn off the oversaturated colors characteristic of mobile cameras.

Are there any disadvantages here? If we are talking about user experience and emotions, then the main drawback remains sound. On the Vivo X70 Pro, there is only one speaker and that is far from the best quality in terms of bass and volume. The PWM situation is also not entirely clear. In previous models, it was possible to easily and conveniently reduce the flicker of the backlight, but now this is not the case.
