Vivo smartphones are mostly known for its camera, but only if you have used it, you will come to know about the kind of performance a Vivo phone offers. Just like Xiaomi, Gionee and Oppo, Vivo is also a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, but its smartphones are a class apart when it comes to the premiumness. The Vivo X20 is an extra-large smartphone with some impressive hardware under the hood. Let’s find out whether it's suitable to your requirements or not.
Why should you buy?
Full View display: Following the recent trend of premium smartphones, the Vivo X20 also flaunts a stretched display with the extra tall aspect ratio of 18:9. It is a 6.01-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ screen resolution (1,080 x 2,160 pixels). Moreover, it’s a 2.5D curved screen that doesn’t not only protect the display but also gives it an elegant feel.
Outstanding cameras: The smartphone is designed with a dual rear camera having 12MP and 5MP lenses with dual pixel and dual focus technology. Which means you can use the phablet to capture high-quality wide-angle photos. The front camera also carries a resolution of 12MP and is equipped with Face Wake feature that can unlock the device in 0.1 seconds.
Brilliant Configuration: Being a flagship, the Vivo X20 is loaded with an excellent configuration. Under the hood, it has two Kryo 260 quad-core processors placed upon Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset and 4GB RAM to offer a lag-free multitasking experience.
Massive storage: The device features 64GB of inbuilt storage, which can let you store a lot of songs, videos, apps and games. And if by any chance you use all the storage and need more, you can add additional storage space in form of a microSD card.
Stunning design: A metallic unibody build, extra-tall structure and 2.5D display have been combined brilliantly to give in an uber cool and rich look. The phone is available in Gold, Rose Gold and Matte Black colors. Regardless of which colour you buy, the Vivo X20 impresses at the first glance.
Why should you not buy?
Extra-large size: A smartphone with 6.01-inch display means you always need to utilise both your hands to use the phone, which might not be liked by everyone. Moreover, carrying it in your pocket may also cause you some amount of discomfort.
Underpowered battery: Bigger the screen size, more it will consume the battery. Nowadays even compact smartphones also carry a large battery, hence only 3,245mAh battery in such a large and expensive phone sounds a bit underpowered. But at the same time, you need to consider the fact that the Vivo X20 is loaded with fast charging feature.
VerdictThe Vivo X20 is a stylish smartphone with Full View display, powerful hardware under the hood and promising cameras. If you are looking for a fully loaded phone, go for it, but only if you are comfortable with using an extra-large smartphone.
