We already know that Vivo in 2021 made a surprise by launching the Vivo X70 Pro. This smartphone was also marketed by Vivo in the Indonesian market starting in early October last year. For those who don’t know, Vivo sells the Vivo X70 Pro with 5G support in Indonesia for Rp. 10,999,000.
Now, the smartphone has been camera tested by DxOMark. The smartphone that carries the ZEISS lens managed to score an overall score of 131 points. This makes the Vivo X70 Pro topped in the premium smartphone category.
In the DxOMark camera test, the vivo X70 Pro (powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-vivo chipset) scored 131 points. Digging deeper, when used to take pictures, this smartphone is able to score 139 points, while the zoom and video scores reach 77 and 111 points, respectively.
Convincingly enough, achieving a score as written above, the X70 Pro managed to secure the top spot in the list of premium smartphone cameras that DxOMark tested. The smartphone managed to beat the iPhone 13. The X70 Pro is currently in 12th position in DXOmark’s global ranking for smartphone cameras.
Looking at the test, the device shows outstanding performance in terms of exposure of shots in low light and offers a wide dynamic range. The camera is also considered capable of producing good colors and capturing images with good detail in low-light conditions.
Not only that, DxOMark also noted that the vivo X70 Pro is able to offer accurate autofocus, wide depth of field, accurate white balance on the ultra-wide camera, and good detail in mid-range telephoto shots.
Then, what about when this smartphone is used to record video? DxOMark wrote that when shooting video, the X70 Pro was able to provide good exposure, accurate white balance, and satisfactory detail in bright light. Apart from that, the camera also offers effective video stabilization.
However, DxOMark found the white balance lacking in indoor and low-light photos. The finer details in high-contrast scenes suffer from clipping issues and the shot is observed to have less noise in all conditions.
Some of the other major issues found in this test were shutter lag and a sudden drop in resolution in successive images when using telephoto mode. When recording in low light, autofocus is unstable and videos lack detail.
Despite these shortcomings, the vivo X70 Pro has claimed the camera performance crown in the premium smartphone category and has set a record for the highest camera score in this segment. Of course, this is the fruit of the sweet work of Vivo engineers who are in the R&D division, right? What do you think?
