Vivo is introducing its second flagship of the year: the X70 series. The upgraded X70 series continues Vivo’s partnership with lensmaker Zeiss. It also brings Vivo’s own V1 imaging chip, which the company claims took nearly two years to develop.
- The Vivo X70 Pro+ that we’ve been using offers a premium, flagship experience across all departments.
- If cameras are high on your priority list, the Vivo X70 Pro+ has got you covered in every single aspect. And no, that’s not an exaggeration.
- The primary camera on the X70 Pro+ is a 50MP sensor that takes some beautiful shots with a great amount of detail in good lighting conditions.
- The natural depth of field that’s seen due to the large sensor and a wide aperture gives the pictures a professional look.
- This is quite annoying though since the quality of images shot using the ultra-wide camera aren’t as good as the ones shot using the primary sensor.
- Vivo’s image processing has always leaned towards eye-catchy colors that look slightly unnatural but are surely pleasing to the average eye. At times, this does lead to colors being represented wrongly.
- Vivo should ideally give users an option to choose between natural and boosted colors since an accurate representation of a scene is also something a lot of people seek.
