Vivo X70 Pro review: A good camera phone with long battery life
The Vivo X70 Pro packs four rear cameras with ZEISS T* Coating, of two which are dedicated to optical zoom:
- 50MP main camera with Gimbal Stabilisation
- 12MP ultra-wide
- 12MP telephoto for 2x optical zoom
- 8MP periscope telephoto for 5x optical zoom
While it boasts an impressive array of cameras, it’s the X70 Pro+ that gets an additional V1 imaging chip to further boost its image processing capabilities. The X70 Pro doesn’t have that, so it relies on its MediaTek processor and Vivo’s software smarts to deliver.
Fans of Vivo would already know of its gimbal stabilisation system keeps the camera sensor steady to get less blurry shots. Vivo already did a great job with the X50 and X60 series, which meant that the X70's series stabilisation is old news by now. You can see how it works below.
With that, we now look at the sample images.
Generally speaking, the Vivo X70 Pro handles colours well, but it overcompensates whites, leaving brighter areas blown out at times. Its 5x optical zoom performance is surprisingly delicious. You'll see more with other examples below.
Again, the X70 Pro's 5x optical zoom camera performs above our expectations.
