vivo X Note Full Review: X70 Pro+…MAX
I have a lot of things to tell you about the x note. This video is not only a review of x notes, but also my personal and subjective experience of switching from the 11 ultra to the x note like an enlarged version of the x70 pro plus. This phone is great, but not my type, although i said in the unboxing video that 7 inches isnt much bigger than my 11 ultra, i still had to get used to a phone that was 80 meter meters wide because it has a 21 to 10 screen ratio. Its much wider than the other 6.8 inch 21 to 9 phones. To put it simply, if you like to use your phone with one hand, then this is not the phone for you, but on the other hand, if you use your phone with both hands on daily basis, the extra wide screen has no effect on you. Vivo also knows that the body is too wide, so the lines on both sides of the back panel are designed to make you look a little narrower, perhaps because i am a me11 ultra user. The design of the camera module is not that unacceptable. To me at least, it is much better looking than the upcoming x80 series, maybe its, because the body is too big, so the vibration motor is weak. The sim card slot can only hold two seams and theres no headphone jack, but it is rarely equipped with an ir emitter and there is a silent switch.
I wont repeat how good ultrasonic fingerprint recognition is. It is fast and has a large recognition area, but the fingerprint quick action feature only has shortcuts for wechat and alipay, so non chinese users might not be able to use this feature. All in all the x note is quite satisfactory in terms of design. This time around, with a 7 inch qwhd plus oled screen, you can see how stunning this screen is just by looking at the specs on paper. Not only is its actual viewing movie size comparable to the ipad mini, but it also has a higher contrast screen than ipad mini. It also has ltpo 2.0, which flagship phones all have and because of the use of e5 material, the maximum brightness is even higher than e4, so you can see the screen more clearly in the sunlight and the touch latency issue on the x70 pro plus is fixed. Although im happy with the color and maximum brightness of this screen, there is a common problem with this years: samsung e5 material screens the side view colors shift problem. When i use the phone on the table, i always feel that the screen is blue. One other complaint is that it doesnt support the stylus either. I tried to write on the x note screen with the vivo pad stylus, but it didnt work at all. I think its really a waste of such a big screen for the x note not to have a stylus when it comes to the performance test.
I have to tell you first that the x note is not the kind of phone that focuses on performance while it seems to perform well in the cpu parts of each bench test. The gpu result tell us that vivo is still the same vivo when you start playing games with it. Vivo will start limiting performance to control temperatures. Vivo is probably thinking that people who would buy this brands flagship phone should be more into taking pictures than playing games. So all the vivo flagship phones we tested didnt perform that well in games im not going to analyze each game specifically, so you can see for yourself what level of gaming experience that x note is. The x note is equipped with the same v1 chip as the x70s pro plus. It is also true that you can get a higher and more stable frame rate by using the game frame insertion, but as with the neo3, there are fewer games supported and there is a touch delay. So i dont recommend turning this feature on every time you play the x note isnt the most powerful phone from vivo in terms of photography, but its still a top notch camera im, comparing it to the mi 11 ultra instead of the x70 pro plus, not only Because my last phone was the me 11 ultra, but also because the x note and x70 pro plus have such similar camera specs that the difference between them is so small.
It is difficult to show how powerful the x note. Camera is. Interestingly, remember the result of our photo comparison between the k50 and the ryomi gt neo3. The k50 has muted colors poor, dynamic range but better detail. The neo 3 has vibrant colors good dynamic range, but not as much as detail as the k50. This conclusion applies to the mi11 ultra and x notes as well, while the mi 11 ultra will be sharper theres. No doubt that the x notes, more vibrant colors and the superior dynamic range make for photos that you will fall in love with at the first glance, and the white balance is more accurate than the mi 11 ultra and both the main camera and ultra wide camera Perform the same very good, i thought the mi 11 ultra would have a bigger gap with the x note without the optical 2x lens, but in fact the difference is not significant. Sometimes the images are even sharper indoors. This also proves how powerful the mi 11 ultras main camera is, but the play does not seem to be as unstable as the x note, sometimes good and sometimes bad. So it seems that the x notes – 2x optical lens – is better, although the xnotes 5x telephoto sensor is not as large as the me11 ultra, it seems that vivos algorithm has improved considerably. It also seems it is on the same level as the 11 ultra. You know what the x note sensor is only half the size of the 11 ultra.
This performance is beyond my expectations, however, when it comes to scenes with almost no light, this sensor is powerless even by excellent algorithm. The resolution of the front lens is similar for both phones, but still the dynamic range x note has a definite advantage. The mi 11 ultra takes too dark a picture of the human eye. The main camera video is again won by the dynamic range, but unfortunately the 2x and 5x lenses can record 4k video and even at 4k 30 fps, it is impossible to switch lenses during recording. This is something the mi 11 ultra does very well with all three lenses supporting 4k 60fps. It is also unfortunate that the x note, like the x70 pro plus, has a system that intelligently judges whether the current scene is suitable for taking pictures with an optical telephoto lens, meaning that if you tap the 2x button or the 5x button, the photo may have Been taken by the main camera cropping the frame into a 2x or 5x shot, not by an optical lens. Sometimes the system is accurate and it is true that the main camera crops the photo better. But sometimes this is not the case such as this photo. I took the photo with a 2x optical lens in a pro mode, compared to the one with the main crop and the 2x optical lens is clearly better and even in pro mode you still cant choose which optical lenses to shoot videos with you have to listen To the system algorithm i paid for the phone, but i cant use which lens i want to use, which really makes me feel bad Music.
I also had a hard time with origin os, which has gotten much better with a few upgrades, but im still very uncomfortable with it. For example, the control center and the notification center are separate in the new version, as they are in many phones. First lets see how mi ui is controlled, no need to slide down from the top slide down the right side of the desktop. Is the control center slide down the left side? Is the notification center swipe left and right to switch back and forth? But how is original is controlled wherever you slide its the control center. The notification center can only be called out by sliding down from the top on the left, and there is no way to switch left or right. You should know that this is a 7 inch phone and i hate the logic of this operation in the past few days. Yes, i know it has a mini screen mode, but then why should i buy this big screen? So ive been using the old control center for the past few days, even though ive set the language to english theres. Also, the chinese language that pops out somewhere plus the camera issues mentioned earlier. For me personally, origin os may be a very beautiful system, but its definitely not a very user friendly system. The 5 thousand million per hour battery is really not that big for a seven inch body and the battery life of x note is rather average, maybe its, because the huge qw hd plus screen isnt so power hungry that it doesnt last much longer than other phones.
I use the x note 40 charge to go out and use the 5g network with 18 remaining after 9 hours of use. The 80 watt wire charging allows the exyno to charge up to 57 in 15 minutes and take 33 minutes to fully charge. Poor charging compatibility has always been a weakness of vivo phones, and this x note is no exception. Even when charging with a charger that supports a 100 watt pd, the maximum charging power is only 14 watts. Vivo x note is a rare, large screen, flexion phone that does a great job in design, build quality and camera. If youre, looking for a large screen phone over seven inches youd be hard pressed to find one with better specs than this one. So youre sure you need a big flagship phone, not a foldable phone. This may be your only choice but from now on ill be plugging my sim card back into my mi 11 ultra, not because its bad, but because im just not used to the huge screen and origin os thats.
