Camera versatility to the max


This must be the season for camera partnerships. While the folks at OnePlus have bragged about their $ 150 million Hasselblad collaboration over the past few weeks, Vivo has teamed up with Zeiss.

The deal was announced last year, but as a result of the partnership, the X60 series is launched worldwide today. The Chinese manufacturer is launching three phones: the X60, X60 Pro and X60 Pro + (it’s a language changer). In addition to having Zeiss-powered lenses, the company has also included the Gimbal mount – which it introduced with the X50 Pro last year – for the Pro and Pro + models.

Here we are going to talk about the leading X60 Pro +, its design and its versatile camera. I have been using the phone for over a week and love that the camera has so many options for taking a photo or video that you are considering.

But before enteringto the essential, let’s look at the specifications of the phone.

Design and features

I want to talk at length about the camera, so let’s cut some other stuff out. Vivo designed a very slim phone if you don’t count the gargantuan camera bump, so getting to know and use is a snap. In addition, the textured vegan leather on the back provides a good hold on the phone.

One minor complaint I have about the size of the camera bump is that it gets in the way of the way I usually hold a phone. I had to adjust my grip a bit, and it took me a day or two.

The AMOLED screen is charming and bright, and you can safely use it outdoors. I watched Formula 1: Drive to survive on Netflix, and it was a joy to see all those vibrant colors with HDR10 + enabled. I would have liked the device to have two speakers, however.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888’s performance was hiccup-free when multitasking, switching between apps, watching videos, or playing games such as Cover the fire.
