One of the sleekest smartphones in its price range, the Vivo X80 oozes style. It also performs flawlessly, takes excellent photos, has long battery life and 80W fast charging. The wide selection of photography and cinematographic features on offer will please the majority of enthusiasts. Reviewers claim that the bloatware-filled FunTouch OS detracts from the premium experience and sticks out like a sore thumb.
Now, as we all know, there are positives and negatives attached to everything, especially gadgets. Even though the Vivo X80 has a 4.6 out of 5 star rating on Google, there are plenty of negative reviews as well.
Let’s see the positive reviews first.
Compared to flagship models from Samsung and Apple, Vivo’s X-series phones often offer better performance and eye-catching photography features for less money. Vivo however opted not to make the non-Pro variant available in India for the new X80 series. The Vivo X80 debuted in India for a reasonable price of Rs 54,999. At this price, it includes a high-end SoC (the Mediatek Dimensity 9000), 80W fast charging, a host of photography tools and videography developed in partnership with Zeiss, and more. It’s safe to say that, at least on paper, the Vivo X80 seems like fantastic value.
Let’s move on to the negatives.
Although most of the features of the Vivo phone X80 model provide good performance, connectivity and network issues have been reported. Some users reported that it does not support 5G connectivity.
Other than that, the Vivo X80 lacks a large amount of expandable memory via card slot, 3.5mm port, FM radio, Corning Gorilla Glass for screen protection, temperature sensor, a barometer and water and dust resistance. It also weighs a bit more than average at 203g/206g (7.16oz).
