Vivo X70 Pro+ Review
Earlier, the author’s attitude towards smartphone imaging has always been okay on the line, after all, the use of cell phone photography scene is more portable and fast sharing out, rather than professional, various platforms at every turn to a photo and video compressed completely can not see, which has been destined to make cell phone photography has become an only shallow taste. The professional images of the long shot are destined to be shared only on the counterpart website. But until Vivo began to preheat the X70 series of phones, I felt as if this thing had changed a bit.
Vivo’s micro cloud platform + SLR lens in the low dispersion ultra-high transmission glass lens + self-research V1 independent image chip + the whole system Zeiss T* coating certification, ordinary manufacturers can handle any two of these four to do a combination can be in the photo on the big blow over, and Vivo this time the four combined into one, this phone is Vivo X70 Pro+.

As the highest-end product in all of Vivo’s current phones, the X70 Pro+ can feel that sense of dignity and weight when you get the box, black + silver solemn and elegant, plus the small blue label of Carl Zeiss, the entire appearance of the box can make people appreciate that this is a masterpiece of technology.
The first and most noticeable part of the box is the rear lens of the X70 Pro+, which is designed by the manufacturer as a small window, highlighting the most important selling point of this phone.
The second layer is the randomly included charger, data line, leather case, product manual, and a Vivo TWS2 true wireless Bluetooth headset that has just been updated this year, which is sold separately for 499 yuan.
The phone screen is a Samsung custom 6.78-inch 3200×1440 resolution E5 light-emitting material centered single digging hole hyperbolic, supporting LTPO adaptive refresh rate adjustment, supporting 10bit color scale 1.07 billion color performance, peak brightness 1000nit, and local peak brightness up to 1500nit.
This screen has received Displaymate A+ certification and broken 15 display records, which can be said to be the current screen ceiling in Android phones.
Screen from the top, of course, the photo aspect should also do the peak. Vivo X70 Pro+ in the rear lens combination using four lenses, four lenses are 50-megapixel super bottom main camera, Samsung GN1 sensor, 1/1.3 inch light-sensitive area, 1/1.57 lens aperture, OIS optical stabilization, 1G + 6P lens combination; 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle micro cloud platform main camera, IMX598 sensor, 1/2 inch light-sensitive area, 1/2.2 lens aperture, micro cloud stage anti-shake; 12-megapixel professional portrait main camera, IMX663 sensor, 1/1.6 lens aperture, 1.22μm single pixel size, OIS optical stabilization, 2x optical zoom; 8-megapixel periscope super-telephoto camera, periscope OIS anti-shake, 5x optical zoom.
Because the existence of these four powerful lenses led to the overall improvement of the rear lens module, so Vivo in the X70 Pro+ rear lens Ting-bun step based on the new ceramic cloud window, which makes its overall visual sensory extension, it seems that the lens does not look too abrupt, the author personally like this piece very much I like the design of the ceramic cloud window, it always looks bright and does not stain fingerprints.
The black version of the phone’s rear shell material that the author got is AG frosted glass, like the matte surface of the general delicate feel of the hand unforgettable, but also does not stain fingerprints.
The top of the phone added infrared, and the top of the “PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY” English words, full of force; the bottom of the SIM card slot, radio microphone, Type-C interface, and speakers.
This pure black X70 Pro+ can be said to black this color to the extreme, volume buttons and power keys are also black, the phone antenna is also black, in addition to the Zeiss small blue label and T* coating because it is others can not be changed outside, basically, you can see the place all through the black, very pure. The official name of the phone is “black”, which is a very appropriate name for it.
The X70 series Slogan is “Zeiss Image Product Viewing Time”, the first half of the sentence highlights the image of the supply-side strength, the second half of the sentence there is an understatement of this strong strength hidden in the silence of life, the past technology products in the publicity always give a sense of the strongest in heaven and earth I will be very impactful and the X70 series is a step higher because it is the characteristic of high-end people to be able to find details in life and to read about the passage of time.
The X70 Pro+’s four lens parameters will not be repeated here, in a word it is almost the strongest from the lens to the imaging to the hardware support, we will look at its actual imaging samples to see what surprises it can bring us. The first is the daily photo experience, the lens is set to automatic mode, open Zeiss natural color.
Of the above three close-up shots, even if the author did not open the background bokeh, the background of the plant being photographed also shows a very soft and appropriate bokeh, part of the trunk of the annual line is visible, part of the pine needles and Beijing vague and clear, while the whole photo has a dark but clear feeling of tone, which is also a unique feature of Zeiss lenses.
The Vivo X70 Pro+ also still has a good look and feel in the sample photos of large scenes of buildings, and the sense of the presence of the buildings is also very strong, especially the one of the China Dream flower group, you can even see the gray clouds in the sky behind, which author feel sorry for because the day of shooting is cloudy, Zhengzhou has been raining for a while, so the sample photos look a bit gloomy.
The telephoto section supports up to 5x optical zoom and 60x digital zoom, the following are the imaging samples of different focal lengths.
Usually, 5x optical zoom is now the part of the phone telephoto lens that can most obviously see the difference, because if it is a hybrid zoom, you can’t see the edge lines of the building after zooming in, but the optical zoom at 5x is still horizontal and vertical even if you zoom in 100% on the photo, the edge lines of the building are still horizontal and vertical, without any defocus and fault, and the details are visible. It is worth mentioning that the imaging quality of the X70 Pro+ samples is very impressive even at 30x zoom.
Vivo has also put a lot of effort into portraits this time around, exclusively customizing the IMX663 and pairing it with a large f/1.6 aperture and OIS optical stabilization, allowing this portrait camera to further improve clarity and purity in night scenes for better low light, night portraits and sports portraits. Not only that, because of the partnership with Zeiss, Vivo has four Zeiss classic lens style background bokeh filters exclusively for portrait shooting styles, namely
- Zeiss Biotar style bokeh – a legendary Zeiss lens that has caused a huge response in the industry and is known for its unique design of rotating bokeh.
- Zeiss Distagon style bokeh – wide-angle structure, 28mm focal length with an extremely wide field of view, to create a sense of cinematographic lens.
- ZEISS Sonnar style bokeh – telephoto structure, with deep detail fidelity and color balance, to create a cinematic feel.
- Zeiss Planar style bokeh – standard structure, correcting a variety of lens aberrations, has a profound impact on the subsequent production of standard lenses around the world.
But unfortunately, the author’s company did not find the lady who appeared, but in fact, these shots are important to highlight the subject and the background bokeh between the articulation effect, so the author used the location of the leaves here instead of the portrait, from the sample image can also be seen as well as some Zeiss style lens bokeh qualities.
The most obvious bokeh on the sample is the leaves above the leaves, zoom in on the edge part can see that even the most edge of the subject leaves, but also retain the shape of the leaves should have, not and the background of the bokeh part into a mass, and the part of the sky between the leaves at this time also like a light spot mixed in the middle of a large green, looks pleasing to the eye.
The shooting place has reached the end of the road corner, but in the sample, photos can feel the path is still a little distance, this is the background bokeh brought about by the depth of space, in the more prominent subject at the same time also let the picture and the background separated, forming a kind of only in the camera lens oversized aperture fully open the photo texture, Zeiss in the lens strength can be on the phone. The first glimpse of two, this feeling is magical.
Vivo X70 Pro+ in the night scene imaging personally is felt to be more prominent than the daytime effect, because in the case of good light during the day, the difference between cell phone photos to look at the distinction, but at night the light is the more complex or extremely shimmering situation, the phone shot out of the night scene comparison chart belongs to a glance can see the difference between good and bad. The following sample photos are all X70 Pro+ handheld straight out of the night sample photos, open night mode.
The first two pictures are taken in the case of already very low light, around basically already pure black, but the X70 Pro+ samples surprised, because that is already not only the darkness of the scene to shoot clear and clear so simple, in the zoom fine look at the lines of the building, you can deeply feel what is called the camera strength of the suppression, and the author did not notice the sky when shooting, but you can still see the presence of clouds in the sky from the sample, very impressive.
The rest of the three-night photos were taken in a better light, mainly depending on the camera’s ability to handle the light, but also very pure, look at it and feel very comfortable and pleasing to the eye.
In the early years of the phone shooting night scenes think is to suppress noise while improving brightness, now is the night scene is clean and beautiful, but the X70 Pro+ this time the photo is to take the night scene to polish the picture to remove impurities and then present the picture in three dimensions in front of your eyes general texture, the author has to say that its photography in the current reality is one of the best existence.
In addition, the official focus on the video shooting function, the author also uses handheld night video footage here as a demonstration, which is accompanied by a small fast running recording screen, you can feel the achievements made by Vivo over the years in terms of anti-shake.
As the top product, then all aspects of the configuration is the strongest at the moment, Android’s strongest processor is of course Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888+, this processor as the Snapdragon 888 upgrade the upgrade is not large, still using the Cortex X1 super core, Cortex A78 large core and Cortex A55 triple-cluster architecture. The main frequency of Cortex-X1 large core is increased from 2.84GHz to 3.0GHz, there are three 2.4GHz Cortex A78 and four 1.8GHz Cortex A55 energy-efficient cores, and the GPU is still Adreno 660.
In addition to the improved part is mainly A, equipped with Qualcomm’s sixth-generation AI Engine engine, computing power compared to the Snapdragon 888 26TOPS upgraded to 32TOPS, AI performance increased by 20%.
It seems that the Snapdragon 888+ score should be similar to the Snapdragon 888, and if a phone has a higher configuration elsewhere, even the Snapdragon 888 score will be better than the Snapdragon 888+, which is normal, but most of our countrymen buy products on the principle that as long as there is stronger and better, then we will buy that.
After the author’s AnTuTu V9 running score actual test, Vivo X70 Pro+ AnTuTu Benchmark running score scored is 851114 points (12GB + 512G), in line with the Snapdragon 888 + results. Specifically for each sub-score, the CPU score is 213687, the GPU score is 320384, and the storage test score is 65355, where the read speed reaches 1975.1MB/s and the write speed reaches 779.8MB/s.
In addition, Vivo X70 Pro+ also uses memory fusion technology on the system this time, which allows 4GB of phone storage space to be used for extended memory and used as RAM, so that some background applications do not occupy the real memory of the system, bringing a smoother experience to users.
In fact, for a cell phone top model, usually in the hardware configuration and performance are not to worry about, because this is the minimum standard, it is necessary to give the focus should be on the overall experience of the phone, which is the standard to prove whether a phone can be called a flagship.
Gaming and Battery
The Vivo X70 Pro+ uses a 4500mAh battery and supports 55W wired fast charging, 50W wireless fast charging, and 10W wireless reverse charging. After a real test, after 30 minutes of “Peace Elite”, the remaining battery power fell from 81% to 69% at the beginning of the game, and the battery consumption of the Vivo X70 Pro+ was 12%.
The game’s image quality is smooth +90 fps, and the system’s game engine is turned on, and the performance mode + Eagle Eye Display is selected. The fact is that you can find a lot of people who are not able to see the actual picture.
In another popular game “Original God”, after 30 minutes of playtime, with all the image quality turned on to the highest and extreme and 60Hz refresh rate, and with performance mode, + Eagle Eye display and game frame insertion turned on, the Vivo X70 Pro+ consumed 16% of the power, which is quite good because Vivo’s S-series phone S10 consumed the same percentage of power under such circumstances. As an ultra-high performance flagship, it is not easy to achieve the same power consumption control on large games as on light entertainment models.
The “Peace Elite” is now more than enough for the phone to master, only games like “Original God” can cause the phone to heat up very badly, and the main frequency of Snapdragon 888+ is up to 3.0GHz, so many people will feel that the heat must be overwhelming, but the physical experience is not the case. Vivo X70 Pro+ within 30 minutes of the game, even if it is a multi-scene brush, the heat transferred from the rear case of the phone is perfectly acceptable, even milder than some Snapdragon 888 models, and the author is open the whole 2K resolution + 120Hz high brush, these can be the big power consumers.
On the charging test, although Vivo X70 Pro+ supports 55W wired fast charging, in the charger configuration is higher, the randomly included charging head is to support 66W fast charging, that is, even if the next generation of products upgraded to 66W, you can have a complete charging experience with this charging head, it seems that this is also a new approach to environmental protection.
In the actual charging test, the battery remaining power consumption is 1% start charging, full the whole phone took a total of 50 minutes, 20 minutes to 55% of the power, 30 minutes to 77%, as a flagship, this is also the current standard of the cell phone fast charging market.
Now to think back to the X series of products of Vivo, no one could have imagined that the model as the main push of the offline market would become the leading work of Vivo, from the X30 to the X70 today, the upgrade of each generation is a great leap forward, especially after finding Carl Zeiss, a senior optical partner, Vivo’s image technology to run at a speed of a thousand miles a day. The company’s image technology is running at a breakneck pace, and there is no such thing as spending money to do it, but to spend money to do it beyond expectations is something that Vivo has done.
The Vivo X70 Pro+ is a first-class work in the camera and design of this year’s cell phone market, and its appearance can be recorded in the history of Vivo’s cell phone development. The iPhone’s software and hardware combination are seamless, but there is no way to resist a century-old camera manufacturer that was born with an optical start and is world-renowned.
The X70 Pro+ is a real optical glass from Zeiss into the phone, which is not equivalent to other brands that can do a label, which is a huge step forward for cell phone products in photo imaging.
