Vivo X30 Pro hands-on review: a 5G phone with 60x super zoom

By  Nap Paarlberg 2020-01-08 1097 16

On the evening of December 16, Beijing time, vivo officially launched its new X-Series vivo X30 and X30 Pro in the picturesque Guilin, Guangxi. The new phone received a lot of attention during the warm-up period, not only because of its hole-digging full screen and periscope lens, but also because it is a dual-mode 5G phone with Samsung Exynos 980processor. As another 5G model of the vivo family and the first dual-mode 5G mobile phone, the X30 series naturally has high hopes.


After the press conference, we also had a simple hands-on experience of this phone, and here we would like to talk to you about the performance of this phone. First of all, let's take a look at the appearance. When it comes to the X series of the vivo family, it has always been the trendsetter of fashion. This time the Vivo X30 series still chose to work with supermodel Liu Wen, and several groups of fashion blockbusters and TVC stunned the audience. Although Liu Wen failed to show up at this press conference, her noble and fashionable temperament is very consistent with the Vivo X30.


Vivo X30 Pro design and screen 

This Vivo X30 Pro can be said to continue the family design style, whether it is the round corners of the front, or the 3D curved glass of the back, warm touch and careful polishing, it is the handwriting of the X series at a glance. The vivo Vivo X30 Pro does not use a lift lens design this time, but uses a more elaborate and technically difficult digging screen. The increase in cost is due to the intransigence of the thickness of the fuselage and the battery.


Both lift design and hole digging have their own advantages, but for the X series, which is light and fashionable, the hole digging screen can meet its needs very well. And on this 6.44in, 20:9 scale screen, the hole digging is only 2.98mm in size. The unprecedented minimal hole-digging design brings the double improvement of visual perception and screen share. Not only that, this XDR screen can also achieve the brightness of the conventional 800N, the local highest 1200nit. The beauty that can be seen clearly is the most important.


The screen of the Vivo X30 also uses E3 material, which can effectively reduce harmful blue light radiation by 42% without changing the color of the screen. This is the most intimate for users who have been using their mobile phones for a long time. In practical use, the Vivo X30 Pro will not make the eyes feel sour, whether in bright or dim light. The most important thing is that the Vivo X30 series supports screen fingerprint technology, the sensor detection area has increased by 30% and the SNR has increased by 41%, and the speed of fingerprint entry and unlocking has been improved. The combination of digging screen and screen fingerprint is still very leading in the industry.


This Vivo X30 series has three kinds of colors: obsidian, Secret Silver and Huiyun. The name is very poetic, and the color matching is just like its name. The two colors of Miyin and Huiyun also use a gradient design, but only one color is used. The color is naturally dyed on the back of the fuselage, without excessive decoration, giving people a very advanced texture.

Vivo X30 Pro hardware performance 

In terms of hardware, in fact, friends who follow the news of the chip industry must be well aware that the Vivo X30 Pro carries the dual-mode 5G chip jointly developed by vivo and Samsung, Exynos 980. This Exynos980 is the industry's first terminal product to use the A77 architecture CPU, and it is also a chip that integrates 5G modem. To put it simply, it not only supports the dual networking mode of NSA/SA, but also can improve the computing power of the chip and reduce power consumption.


With the support of hardware, vivo also optimizes the antenna layout, software algorithm and so on. For example, SA twin-transmitter design technology, antenna decoupling technology and side distributed antenna technology. Not only that, vivo also said that through a detailed analysis of the user's grip posture, combined with the advantages and disadvantages of the performance after the grip to layout the antenna breakpoints, optimize the layout of the 5G terminal antenna. For the performance of the entity, please follow our follow-up full review.

The Vivo X30 Pro is equipped with up to 8GB LPDDR4X storage, as well as the highest 256GB storage space, with a large 4350mAh battery and 33W fast charging, to protect your life in this 5G era in pursuit of high-speed connection. Of course, the zero-sense water-cooled heat dissipation technology that we are familiar with has also been retained this time. Through the liquid-cooled heat dissipation structure + high thermal conductivity gel, the heat dissipation capacity is greatly improved.


Vivo X30 Pro: cameras 

Taking photos this time is the highlight of the Vivo X30, but the experience time is too short to bring you a detailed sample analysis, so let's take a look at his parameters and the playability of the software. This time the vivo Vivo X30 Pro has four shots. This 13 million pixel 5x periscope telephoto lens has a medium-long focal length of the equivalent full-frame SLR, and the unique horizontal design will not increase the thickness of the fuselage. Combined with vivo's self-developed hyperdivision algorithm (super-resolution), it can achieve the industry-leading 60x digital zoom, and the zoom function can also be called directly on the short video platform Douyin.


Not only that, in order to meet the needs of users for zoom shooting, vivo also added a professional standard lens with a 32 million pixel F2.0 aperture, which can achieve a smooth transition of the main focus. Another 64 million-pixel HD main shot can provide clearer picture quality and details. With wide-angle and macro lenses, all kinds of beautiful scenery will not be easily missed.

In addition, the Vivo X30 Pro also has a 50mm portrait lens, which is a standard shot for portraits. Because the lens of this focal section is closer to what the human eye can see, it can effectively solve the situation of "deformation" of human face. Not only that, the vivo also brings flagship configurations such as a 2.8-inch sensor, 32 million pixels, F2.0 aperture and 6p lenses for the lens. The amount of light is larger and the portrait pictures are clearer.


In order to make portrait shooting more accurate, the Vivo X30 Pro is also equipped with the "eye tracking" function of a professional camera. The refresh rate of 30 frames per second is achieved by AI algorithm, which can track the focus of human eyes quickly and continuously. Officials say that even in the case of occlusion or continuous movement, the Vivo X30 Pro can quickly lock the human eye and focus.

Vivo X30 Pro: other features 

Finally, there are a few very interesting features. The first is the customized font function. When the user writes 100Chinese characters on the Vivo X30 Pro screen, the personalized font package can be automatically generated for the user through the AI character-making platform, and can be applied globally in the mobile phone. This combination of technology and handwriting is really creative.


The other is the application sharing function. Through Wi-Fi P2P direct connection technology and virtual screen technology, you can quickly share the applications in your phone with a nearby vivo phone, so that two phones can watch videos or run the same application together. It is so convenient for couples or friends to watch videos or play music "disco" together.

Although the experience time is limited, the Vivo X30 Pro left a deep impression on me. Hole digging screen + screen fingerprint, periscope lens, 60x digital zoom, dual mode 5G. Everywhere reflects the innovation and accumulation of vivo in the field of technology.
