Vivo S10 Pro Review
As a four-monthly update, Vivo’s S series phones can be said to have time and again let the market witness the improvement of cell phone craft design aesthetics.
From the earliest front ultra-clear selfie to the current front soft double flash, the Vivo S series of products to the weight of the front selfie to even complete darkness can be presented to the user’s satisfaction photos.
At the same time, the S series also refreshed the phone’s rear shell process to a new height, you may not be able to call out its rear shell gradient color in the end what color and the kind of delicate touch in the phone is what is going on, but you just have to see and touch after you will think “it is really good-looking”.

In addition to the excellent selfie, the other main selling point of Vivo S series phones is the design of the whole machine, and not just the design of the phone itself, but a complete set of designs from the outer box to the interior.
The S series box has always been presented in a style similar to a gift bag, and this time too, the model number of the phone is printed on the front along with its slogan “Natural Soft Portrait, Illuminate My Beauty”.
The interior of the box is now extremely rare all supporting products, packaging charging head, data cable, manual, phone case, headphones, three package certificate and a series of new phone needs, in hand, no need to go to the additional order to buy any other accessories, and the phone is a factory with the film. The author received this time the most unique Vivo S10 Pro a new color scheme: Radiant Color (photochromic).
Its key design is the gradient color of the back shell. It is said that it is a gradient color, but it is not the kind of gradient color that we conventionally understand, and even a bit like a light-sensitive gradient color, that is, it can change with the change of light.
The official description of this material can be said to be a great deal of effort to achieve: the brilliant color change process comes from a magical color-changing organic material, which is a new photonic switch, in the previous widely used in super-resolution. Microscope optical storage devices, biological targeting agents, and other high-tech fields of the heterostructure, which use outdoor ultraviolet light irradiation can quickly set off color-changing materials to change color.
The stronger the ultraviolet light, the faster the color development Compared with the common inorganic color-changing materials, this new organic color-changing material is easier to carry out molecular design, more color changes, fast color change corresponding speed, high stability, and longer service life.
The color scheme is also very contrasting red and blue, and even at certain angles, you can feel the convergence of these two colors, just like the compatibility of water and fire, atmospheric and psychedelic.
In addition to the appearance of the biggest change is the phone lens module there, although still stepped, the whole area covered a larger, the main camera 108 numbers also fully explained this time its main camera advanced to 108 megapixels, can bring users ultra-high-definition mode photo experience.
The exterior design part is the same as the previous generation of Vivo S9, the right-angle bezel can stand on the desktop, eliminating the 3.5mm headphone hole, the whole machine is 7.43mm thin, weighing 175g, one of the few ultra-slim 5G phones.
As a phone that has always been famous for taking photos, Vivo S10 Pro brings a new shooting system this time, and all three lenses have been upgraded compared to the previous generation: 108-megapixel main camera, f/1.88 aperture, 1/1.52″ sensor size; 8-megapixel super wide-angle, f/2.2 aperture, 1/4″ sensor size; and 2MP Macro, f/2.4 aperture, 1/5″ sensor size.
The most dazzling thing is that the main camera lens has been upgraded to a new 108MP super high pixel, which is the highest pixel main camera of the phone. How does the new camera of Vivo S10 Pro take pictures? Let’s look at the sample photos directly.
In the case of leaves and light and shadow staggering, Vivo S10 Pro presented photos is very consistent with the shooting situation of the day, and the green is no transition, bright light part and can feel the hot sun of the day, this sensitive contrast can be said to give the user looking at the photos can bring immersive feelings.
Another sample of a large group of buildings, Vivo S10 Pro adheres to the consistent photo characteristics of Vivo cell phones, that is, the sharpening is relatively high, you can see that the line part is more obvious, and then the edge of the leaves is also a certain sharpening process, the user can have a more direct feeling when looking at the photo.
From the configuration of the three lenses, we can see that Vivo S10 Pro does not carry a telephoto lens, but since there is a 108-megapixel ultra-high-definition lens to support it, the telephoto lens does not seem to be so important. Let’s look at the photo samples of the Vivo S10 Pro in different focal lengths.
Sensory sense is good in the case of 2x zoom, but it can be seen from the 5x zoom that it is more obvious digital cropping, which is also currently equipped. It is the most intuitive difference between a telephoto lens and a telephoto lens without a telephoto lens, but if you choose between an ultra-wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens, which one would you choose?
In terms of night scenes, this time the Vivo S10 Pro shocked the author again, and there is really no need to say anything, when you see the comparison sample, you will also feel surprised.
How about that? The photos taken after opening the night view mode are completely different in texture, although the overall picture is much brighter, it is rare to see more details, buildings you can see the clouds in the sky, flowers you can see the focus on the center of the small flower petals of clarity.
The strength of the current cell phone manufacturers in tuning night mode photography is really too strong, can completely save a lot of late to learn to repair the effort, you can click the shutter, immediately after the photo to share to various social platforms. In addition, there is one more egg for you, In the last photo, do you think it has open night mode?
The same processor as the previous generation of Vivo S9, Vivo S10 Pro is also equipped with MediaTek Dimensity 1100, this processor has been used by many cell phones in the first half of this year, it can be said that it has completely withstood the market test and verification, and the repeatedly depressed price also proves its full cost performance. Let’s review the parameters of the Dimensity 1100.
Dimensity 1100 chip uses TSMC advanced 6nm EUV process, logic density increased by 18% compared to the previous generation, also uses the flagship octa-core architecture CPU, CPU consists of four A78 main frequency 2.6GHz large core, four A55 main frequency 2.0GHz small core, GPU integrated G77 MC9, in addition, Vivo S10 Pro is also equipped with UFS 3.1 Flash memory, only in ROM is still equipped with LPDDR4X quad-channel.
The chip was launched by MediaTek in January of this year, in March by the Vivo S9 global debut, this time Vivo S10 Pro for the continuation of the heritage, after the author’s AnTuTu Benchmark V9 score test, Vivo S10 Pro score of 671,299. The CPU score is 173,901, the GPU score is 235,431, and the storage test score is 72,746, with a read speed of 1981.9MB/s and a write speed of 1302.2MB/s.
In addition, Vivo S10 Pro also adopts memory fusion technology on the system this time, which can use 4GB of phone storage space for extended memory as RAM, so that some background applications do not occupy the real memory of the system, bringing users a smoother experience.
The scores of Vivo S9 are still the AnTuTu V8 version, and this run uses AnTuTu V9, so although it is the same processor, the final score is much higher than Vivo S9, but the V8 version can not be compared with the V9 version, we know.
Gaming and Battery
Vivo S10 Pro uses a 4050mAh battery with 44W flash charging. After a real test, after 30 minutes of “Peace Elite”, the remaining battery power dropped from 94% to 86% at the beginning of the play, and the battery consumption of Vivo 10 Pro was 8%.
In the case of playing is the screen image quality only support to open to HDR HD, frame rate settings adjusted to an ultra-high level, and in the system to open the performance mode and eagle eye display, the test proved that Vivo’s various system performance optimization is very powerful, after opening the game magic box, the smoothness of the game and screen saturation has also improved. For the user base who like Vivo S series, such experience is completely it’s enough.
In another popular game “Original God”, after 30 minutes of game time, the picture quality is all open to the highest and limit and 60Hz refresh rate, Vivo S10 Pro power consumption of 15%, remember the previous generation product Vivo S9 game trial with the same picture quality, 30 minutes of power consumption is 20%. This time, the power consumption is 5% less, which shows that Vivo has made a good improvement in system optimization.
In the charging test, the 44W flash charging kit that comes with the vivo S10 Pro is used for charging. In the actual charging test, the remaining battery power consumption is 2% to start charging. It takes a total of 51 minutes to fully charge the entire phone, and 20 minutes. It can be charged to 57% of the battery, which is more than half, and the experience in this area is still in place.
The Vivo S10 Pro has not been upgraded in terms of processor, but the overall gaming experience is guaranteed, and what is more critical is that even with the same processor, the battery consumption has been reduced after the same time as the previous generation of games, which is the key role played by Vivo’s optimization in terms of software.
Many of the users who commented on the Vivo S series are not the target users of the series, because people who want to buy S series phones are not going to look at the keywords mentioned in these comments, what they want is beautiful photos and beautiful phones, plus the spokesperson they like the same product, it’s that simple.
