I mean we are talking about so many fingerprints on the camera bump of this phone. The camera bump looks familiar with the OnePlus 10 Pro. The fingerprint scanner, it’s located in the in-display and has some amazing speeds because of a new ultrasonic sensor on display.

|8K video recording||No|
|4K video recording||60 FPS|
|1080p video recording||Up to 60FPS|
|Lenses||(50 MP + 12 MP + 12 MP)|
Vivo X80 has 3 cameras at the back and man the camera is so amazing that it can easily defeat some of the camera phones of 2022 like the Oppo Find X5. In the Vivo X80, the main camera is 50 megapixel F/1.8. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.8, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be. This Vivo X80 can record video at 4K at 60 FPS. This is amazing the video will contain more details thanks to its good optimization software and the high-end processor. You can also record 4K at 30FPS which will contain even more details and will be sharper. There is Optical image stabilization on the main lens only. This is quite impressive, this will make the camera experience more stable and more accurate. You will say goodbye to that blurry shots and unstable videos. The Vivo X80 has 3 more camera lenses. Let’s talk about that in detail.
|Triple||50 MP, f/1.8, (wide), 1/1.49″, 1.0µm, PDAF, Laser AF, OIS
12 MP, f/2.0, 50mm (telephoto), 1/2.93″, 1.22µm, PDAF, 2x optical zoom
12 MP, f/2.0, 16mm (ultrawide), 1/2.93″, 1.22µm, AF
|Features||Zeiss optics, Zeiss T* lens coating, Pixel Shift, dual-LED dual-tone flash, HDR, panorama|
As I mentioned above that this 50 MP sensor is good. But this Vivo X80 has 2 more camera lenses. There are 2 optical zoom cameras. The first one is a 12MP F/2.0 50mm telephoto camera with the capabilities of 2 times optical zoom. This is quite impressive and is good because it is a 12MP camera sensor which means it will contain more details and good autofocus. This camera lens is F/2.0 which makes the aperture wider enough to take sharp shots of subjects with good background separation and with good bokeh effect. This camera is 12MP which will contain good details in zoom shots. There is another camera sensor of 12MP which is an ultra-wide camera. And it’s so wide, the field of view is 16mm which is wider than the one on the Oppo Find X5. This camera sensor also has some amazing autofocus. This sensor can take amazing shots with high accuracy. Its aperture is F/2.0, which makes it sharp and contains good tons on subjects. This Vivo X80 has an amazing camera setup, with fast autofocus lenses, high sensors, and good software optimization.
|Single||32 MP, f/2.5, 26mm (wide), 1/2.8″, 0.8µm|
|Video||[email protected], [email protected]|
When it comes to selfie cameras the Vivo X80 has a single-punch whole camera of 32MP which has the largest pixels. This single-punch whole camera contains some awesome details when it comes to daytime shots. At night time this camera sensor struggles a lot. And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.5 which means the photos will look not accurate as other smartphones, also this camera will suffer a lot at night because the sensor is not that wide to capture more light thus leaving us in disappointed. The camera video capabilities are also kept at 4K at 30FPS only. Which will also contain tons of details in video thanks to this large 32MP camera sensor. This camera sensor is also the same as the higher-end model of Vivo which is the Vivo X80 Pro.
|Wi-Fi standard||Wi-Fi 6|
|USB type||USB Type-C|
This Vivo X80 is launching with the Wi-Fi 6 which is faster, more efficient, and gives you less latency when compared to the Wi-Fi 5. Which will make the user experience smoother and faster. There is also the support of Bluetooth 5.2. Which is also faster and more efficient than version 5.1. Vivo X80 has the USB type C gen 3.2 support which makes sense because of the 80 watts of fast wire charging so it must need more bandwidth for charging speeds. It also helps with the data transfer because it helps with the faster read and write speeds. Vivo X80 also has NFC support which is also useful. You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to the NFC support.
|Headphone audio jack||No|
The Vivo X80 comes with stereo speakers. This Vivo X80 has nice sound quality with a nice amount of bass in it. This will help in gaming because there are two speakers one at the bottom and one at the top which will help gamers. Video watching and hearing to music also going to be good. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is neither good nor bad.
|Colors||Black, Blue, Orange|
The Vivo X80 is going to launch in three different colors. Black, Blue, and Orange. Vivo is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the black color because it looks better than these two colors.
This smartphone is costing around $600 which is way cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the iPhone 13 pro max.
If you are looking for a good camera phone, good gaming phone, good design, good display, and amazing performance then this Vivo X80 is worth buying. Because it has all the needs that a good consumer needs.
So, this was my full review of this Vivo X80.
