As the sun sets, the Vivo V1 chip starts to stretch its legs. The fast focus will adjust to any angle or distance from the subject. The iPhone 12 Pro simply struggles to focus correctly when the subject is closer at wide-angle. It’s also because the 12 Pro doesn’t have a macro mode like the iPhone 13. When comparing the macro shots with the 13 Pro Max, the Vivo X70 Pro+ keeps up and even beats the iPhone at times. The lowlight shots are sharp, richly detailed and have a high dynamic range. Obviously, the V1 chip also cleans up the noise and keeps the overall shot tidy.
The gimbal camera also retains its maximum glory, offering stable handheld shots in photos and videos. It’s also got Horizon Level Stabilization, something that you find in the latest GoPros. So videos are much more stable than any other smartphone. These are not the best videos you’ll find on a smartphone but the means to capture amazing shots is baked into the X70 Pro+. It has slightly better lowlight performance after the sun’s down but you can’t really flaunt it. Apple iPhones still take the best videos.
If you want to know how many megapixels the Vivo packs, scroll down to the tech specs section. Although that hardly matters here because all the lenses at the back perform brilliantly. So no matter what shot you take, you’ll get the best photo there is on a smartphone. Selfies from the Vivo also pack natural tones with tight exposure control. Something that is a staple with all the lenses — back and front.
