vivo X80 Pro Unboxing & Quick Review

We just finished reviewing the Vivo X Note a few days ago. But the X80 series was also released recently. While I don’t think it’s a good idea for Vivo to flood the market with many flagship phones, since they have released new phones, we have no choice but to review them for you guys.

Performance & Gaming

Vivo knows its users very well. They know that we prefer the Dimensity 9000 to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. That’s why it is offering two versions with identical specs but different processors.

You can buywhichever  processor you like. The X80 Pro we have is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 version. Because the Dimensity 9000 version is not yet available for sale. We are already familiar with the Benchmark performance of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, so you can take a look at the table to get an idea.

As for the gaming performance, we simply ran PUBG and Genshin. Maybe the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 performance is too bad, or maybe Vivo is just trying to protect your hands from getting burned, as usual, the performance is just mediocre.

Cameras

The four lenses on the X80 Pro are a 50MP main camera, a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 12MP portrait camera, and an 8MP periscope telephoto camera.

This time the V1 chip of X80 Pro was updated to V1+ chip. Because the other lenses have not changed much, so we mainly talk about this Micro Gimbal portrait lens. Honestly, the closest focusing distance of this lens is a bit too far,

So I prefer the X70 Pro Plus design that puts the Micro Gimbal on the ultra-wide-angle camera. The other lenses are not significantly different compared to the X70 Pro Plus or X Note. If you want to know more details about this camera system, you can check out our X70 Pro Plus and X Note reviews.

Battery & Charging

The X80 Pro’s battery capacity has been increased by 200mAh over the previous generation, and the wired charging power has been increased to 80w. However, the compatibility of charging protocols is still not good.

There are more versions for sale this time, so I’ve listed a table for your reference. In fact, the Vivo X series has never been cheap, so buying the X80 Pro depends on whether you are interested in its powerful camera system or not. I know a lot of people are interested in the X80 Standard Edition. We will also bring its review as soon as possible.
