Vivo X50 First Impressions: Photography is at the Epicentre


Vivo has extended its reach to the premium segment with X50 series smartphones, X50 and X50 Pro. We have got the basic variant of this new series. Hope you are interested in knowing about it. Here we are just to give you a glimpse of what Vivo X50 holds. The smartphone sells at Rs 34,990 for 8GB/128GB.


The first thing first, the design of Vivo X50 attracts you as soon as you remove the cover box. The phone is smooth, attractive, and looks premium. The best part is that the phone is extremely lightweight. Another noticeable factor is that the back design is not-prone to fingerprint smudges which are anyway normal on glass design. The smartphone is not slippery either. The glass-metal design looks sleek.


The X50 sports a huge punch-hole display of 6.56 inches supported by HDR 10+. The company has sourced the phone’s display from Samsung in which they are master. The Super AMOLED screen is lit. The screen area is large enough to enjoy content with ease. The screen is bright, vivid, and sharp. The colour reproduction remains intact on it. The newly designed wallpapers give it a more relaxed and calm look which is soothing to the eyes.


I have been using the phone for three-four days but till now hasn’t faced any problem. The commands are being obeyed instantly. The phone does not heat either, but these are initial days. Vivo has used Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 in X50 supported by 8GB RAM. The processor is new to the market and can only be tested with time. The feedback till now is good.



The Vivo X50 series focuses mainly on camera-driven buyers and the phone packs such features to justify the company’s claim. The X50 has a 48MP main lens, 8MP wide-angle lens, 5MP macro lens and a 13MP Bokeh lens as well. The phone supports 20x digital zoom as well. The photography is a treat on this phone. The Night Mode is just superb. You must try this. It creates a completely different scene when it comes to night and low-light photography. Normal shots too are vivid and colour accurate. The 32MP selfie lens will satisfy your lust with ease. Overall, Vivo X50 will never disappoint you in photography.



The Vivo X50 runs on a 4,200mAh battery, sufficient enough for a day. The charging speed is nice. The battery does not drain but, these are initial days. The phone is just a few days old. Heat dissipation is minimal now but may go up while gaming or video calls.

Initial Remarks

Vivo has not done something extraordinary here. The phone is on the lines of Vivo’s legacy of camera-focused smartphones. Hope you remember Vivo V17 Pro which has some great photography features. The X50 does that once again. Photography has gone a notch better than that. The phone is backed by a mid-range processor which isn’t a thing to complain as of yet. Battery compliments phone and processor.

The company has worked on designing the phone but that too we have seen quite often in Huawei phones. The rear camera module makes me a bit concerned as it bulges out of the body unevenly which makes it prone to scratches. These are just my initial feedbacks; stay tuned for the detailed review soon.
