The Vivo T1x is the newest addition to Vivo’s T-Series of smartphones, which have always offered excellent value for the money spent on them. The smartphone competes with the Redmi Note 11 series and has a design that is quite similar to the iQoo Z6. It is intended for online-only users and is priced somewhere in the inexpensive range, approximately Rs 12,000.
We’ve been using this phone for a while, so trust us when we say that it feels as nice as it looks. Let’s find out what else the phone has to offer in this review. Just a glimpse, the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC and boasts an FHD display with a 90Hz refresh rate, among other features. So let’s check it out.

Vivo T1x Review: Design and display
The Vivo T1x is quite slim and svelte in appearance. The polycarbonate and glass used to form the back panel, which has a pretty excellent finish and is composed of plastic, seem quite nice. Furthermore, it hardly ever attracts fingerprints—aside from a few smudges—and generally remains spotless. Although the camera bump is definitely not subtle, we were able to rest our fingers on it with ease, and there is a Vivo logo at the bottom.
The sides are quite thin, and it has a lovely flat shape that gives your hand a great grip. The volume rockers and power button, which also serves as fingerprint sensor, are located on the right. A single down-firing speaker, a USB Type C port, a microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone connector are all located at the bottom.
Then a SIM tray with space for two dedicated micoSD cards and nano SIM cards is located on top. A selfie camera is housed in a teardrop notch on the display. The side bezels are thin with a noticeably thick chin. Overall, we would say that the build and design give you the impression of using a high-end smartphone.
The Vivo T1x’s front features a 6.58-inch full-HD+ LCD screen with a resolution of 1,080 by 2,408 pixels. The display has a 90Hz refresh rate, a 90.6 percent screen-to-body ratio, and a 96 percent NTSC colour gamut coverage.
The contrast and overall saturation levels are rather outstanding, and the screen looks lovely. Thanks to the full HD quality, the fonts and icons are also apparent. While the display is adequate for casual media viewing, it is not bright enough for use outside in the sun. However, you do have support for 90Hz refresh rates, which makes a significant impact, especially when you are browsing through social media.
By offering a 90Hz refresh rate, which looks fluid but has little to no influence on your battery life, the whole display experience is improved. You can still use a smart switch, though, where the refresh rate adjusts based on the type of video being displayed. If you want to conserve battery life, maintain it at 60Hz.
The T1x is a highly enjoyable, clear, crisp, and bright device for watching videos and movies on. It does have Widevine L1 certification, enabling full-resolution streaming from services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
The single speaker that fires downward is loud and clear enough. However, it would have been fantastic if it had twin speakers.
On the other hand, despite being incredibly secure, the side-mounted fingerprint scanner is not the fastest. It takes a moment or two for it to recognise you before unlocking. Although it became quicker as I began to use it more frequently, you may also utilise face unlock.
Although not the safest, it is really quick. Faceunlock can be challenging in dimly lit areas where it is less effective; thus, we advise using the fingerprint scanner instead, which is far more dependable.
Vivo T1X Review: Performance and camera
With FuntouchOS, the Vivo T1x runs the most recent version of Android 11, which has a few small tricks up its sleeve but still looks and feels quite similar to pure Android. We genuinely adore how responsive, slick, and simple to use it is. Even the basic gesture controls function well. The main drawback, though, is how bloatware-heavy it is; it feels like half of the Play Store is included. The good news is that you can remove any apps you no longer use.
When it comes to performance, the Vivo T1x is driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC, which has an octa-core 6nm architecture and is paired with an Adreno GPU 610. The phone can also support up to 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The Vivo T1x supports UFS 2.2 onboard storage up to 128GB, and a microSD card with a maximum capacity of 1TB may be loaded through a dedicated slot.
As a result of the additional built-in storage, the RAM may be raised to 8GB, which was beneficial for multitasking and kept the most frequently used apps in memory, which is incredibly helpful.
We were quite pleased with the overall user experience and found no speed slowdown. We played COD, and it was a fairly enjoyable experience overall. We played for more than 30 minutes without experiencing any lag. It’s also important to note that this phone has full-layer cooling technology, which keeps it from overheating and improves gaming performance.
Regarding the battery, we have a 5,000mah battery that, depending on usage, can easily last you a day to a day and a half. There is now an 18W charger included, and a full charge takes roughly three hours. Additionally, there is no possibility of overcharging or overheating the phone because the device has a VEG (Vivo Energy Guardian) charging feature that automatically stops charging when the smartphone is fully charged.
The Vivo T1x includes two rear cameras, one with a 2-megapixel secondary sensor and an f/2.4 aperture and the other with a 50-megapixel primary sensor. It features an f/1.8 aperture 8-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls.
Let’s start with the main camera, which is actually rather decent. In well-lit conditions, the 50-megapixel primary sensor produces clear, bright, and sharp photos. With true colours, you get a dynamic range that is astounding. We tried a few times, and it didn’t let us down. While we won’t say they are perfect, some of them were taken at night and are still rather good.
If you utilise the 2-megapixel macro in well-lit environments, it should work fine. When there is good illumination, the front camera is very clear and performs admirably. Additionally, you can use bokeh blur to create portrait shots. Edge detection can be hit or miss, depending on the situation.
As for the videos, you may capture a full HD movie at 60 frames per second. If you don’t hold the camera steady, the footage can be a little shaky, but overall, the quality is excellent.
Numerous features about the Vivo T1x are excellent. With a Snapdragon 680 SoC and effective cooling, it is a reliable performer. A full HD display with a refresh rate of 90Hz is included. Additionally, it incorporates VEG technology for secure charging. The phone’s cameras are also being used cautiously by the gadget. Although the images are fairly outstanding, the HDR performance is not exactly the best. With these features, the smartphone manages to stand out from the competition for a starting price of Rs. 11,999.
