Vivo X50: Strong Points
The first thing that really stands out for Vivo X 50 is its build quality and design. It comes with a glass back and metal frame making it look elegant and is comfortable to hold. Also, when light fall on the back panel, it shows dual colour when the angle is changed. At 7.5 mm thickness, it is slimmer than the Galaxy S20 which as a thickness of 7.9mm.
Vivo X50’s display is the second element of the phone that will grab your attention. It is vibrant and watching or consuming content is a pleasant experience. The placement of the punch hole front camera on the top left corner of the device is well thought of and will not hamper with the viewing experience.
The performance of the device is lag-free and one will not find issues while checking out the apps, scrolling or even during gaming.
In the camera department, Vivo has done a great job. The pictures in almost all the lighting conditions come out well. However, I would like to add that due to software enhancement, snaps appear 1-2 tone brighter than the actual picture which you see. Even the video recording capabilities is good as compared to other smartphones in this price bracket of Rs 35,ooo and the image stabilization during shots is sturdy.
On a full recharge Vivo X50’s battery can last a day on medium usage without any issue, and in case you require to charge the device fast charging functionality is quite handy.
Vivo X 50: Week Points
The Vivo X50 comes with the Funtouch OS running out of the box which is based on the latest Android 10, and it is a weak point of the device. It comes will lot of pre-loaded apps that shouldn’t be there on a premium smartphone.
Apart from that, The phone asks for unnecessary permission like for accessing gallery and themes app you need to provide access to the phone which is not required. Also, if you don’t give access to the phone, you will not be able to use the two apps mentioned above and the message that will be displayed will be that access to storage is required and that too when we have already given access for it. So in short, the message doesn’t show the exact permission the app is requesting.
