The Vivo X50 Pro+ scored a very high photo score of 139 points, just behind the two leaders mentioned above, and showed very strong performance in the test. Depth exposures are generally accurate, as are white balance and color rendering. The dynamic range is wide, and shadow and highlight details are well preserved at high contrast. Few scenes are encountered that make the Vivo X50 Pro+ difficult to handle.
Photographers who enjoy telephoto photography will appreciate the 5x zoom performance of the phone’s 124mm equivalent focal length; it also performs well at mid-range zoom settings, retaining well-placed detail throughout the zoom range. However, its wide-angle lens only has the medium coverage of an equivalent 16mm lens, and some quality issues detract from the phone’s performance, making it a less than impressive performer in this regard.
Low light poses almost no problems for the X50 Pro+: noise is well controlled, while still retaining plenty of image detail. Night exposures are still accurate, the white balance looks natural, and the colors are beautiful. There are some artifacts in the image, but not enough to spoil the whole thing.
The Vivo X50 Pro+ Portrait Photo simulates scatter well, but its performance can’t match the areas where the phone performs best. As with almost all phones, the Vivo X50 Pro+ has some depth-sensing issues, though its subject isolation issues are sometimes worse. It renders out-of-focus highlights well, but blur gradients don’t look natural.
Vivo X50 Pro+ also performs very well in the video test, scoring 104 points for its DXOMARK video, just ahead of first-place Xiaomi and second-place Huawei; 106 and 105 points, respectively. DxoMark tested it at its optimal 4K 30 fps setting although it can also record 8K video. Exposure is generally accurate. The clever balance between detail and noise saw in the still image output also carries over to the video: the video is effective at maintaining fine detail while keeping noise under control. Autofocus is fast and effective at tracking moving objects. Anti-shake is quite effective. There are some issues with color shifting, especially indoors, while the color saturation outdoors (especially vegetation) leaves room for improvement. Antiflicker sometimes causes frameshifting, but overall, the phone’s video performance is commendable.
