You get to enjoy Android 12-based FunTouch 12 OS on the smartphone, dual-SIM, 5G connectivity, as well as a 64MP rear triple camera system along with a 16MP front camera. Here is a complete review of the new Vivo T1 Pro 5G, so you can decide whether to invest in this smartphone or not.
Vivo T1 Pro 5G Review: Design And Display
The Vivo T1 Pro smartphone comes riding in a big rectangular box, white in colour, which makes the Vivo branding on top look even more prominent. Along with the smartphone comes a silicone case, a SIM ejector tool, a Vivo FlashCharge adapter, a USB to Type-C cable, a quick start guide and an information booklet.
Opening the lid, you face its 6.44-inch sleek black display, which has about 86% screen-to-body ratio. Picking the phone in hand, it does not feel too heavy in weight. Flip it over and you’ll meet its plastic back coated in its body colour panel with a glimmering shine. The smartphone is available in two colours in India, Turbo Black and Turbo Cyan, out of which we were able to get our hands on the latter.
The triple camera system is structured in a well-planned and symmetrical manner. The rear cameras and the flashlight are mounted on a double-level platform. The first level, made up of glass, hosts the flashlight. The second level, made of plastic, has the cameras fixed in it. While the rest of the back reflects a range of colours complementing the main shade, the shades of the mount are steady.
The back of the smartphone has sides sloping towards the left and right direction. This navigates your eyes to its frame, which is also made of plastic. The volume button and the power button lie on the right side while the left side has been kept free. At the bottom lies the SIM card tray, a USB Type-C port, as well as the speaker of its mono audio system. The device has an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Bring the smartphone to life, and you’ll be greeted by its HDR10+ AMOLED display. It has a screen resolution of 1080×2404 pixels, a 20:9 aspect ratio, and 409ppi pixel density. The look and feel of the smartphone interface is quite nice. The colour range is pretty wide and the default theme is subtle. The legibility of the device under sunlight is also good, thanks to its 1,300 nits brightness. Speaking of the touch experience, it is soft and fluid.
The experience of watching videos on Youtube was great on the Vivo T1 Pro smartphone. The video quality can be enhanced up to 2160p at a 60fps rate. Playing any UHD content on the app completely immerses you in it. The same can be said about streaming movies and TV series on Netflix.
The colours on the screen are full of contrast and pop out, appealing to the eyes. The picture quality is also clear. Together with the commendable sound system, the streaming experience is taken to the next level. When set to more than 70%, the smartphone audio is blaring loud. However, one still does miss a stereo audio output on the device.
Gaming on the device was tested by playing high-end games like Asphalt 9 Legends. The graphics quality is quite pleasing to the eyes. The colours are full of vibrance. The response to touch is also pretty swift. Overall, the gameplay is buttery smooth.
All in all, the design of the Vivo T1 Pro 5G is stylish and has a pinch of glamour sprinkled to it. It would make a perfect companion during night-outs and parties. The display quality is also good.
Vivo T1 Pro 5G Review: Performance And Cameras
Elaborating further on the new Vivo T1 Pro specifications, it offers 6GB/8GB RAM options with 128GB internal storage. The device runs on a Qualcomm SM7325 Snapdragon 778G 5G (6 nm) Octa-core processor, with Adreno 642L GPU. The battery capacity of the phone is 4,700mAh and supports 66W fast charging.
It gets fully charged in about 1 hour. The battery life is also pretty impressive. Upon mild to moderate usage, it can last up to two days. Upon heavy usage, it can pull through an entire day, or even more.
The Vivo T1 Pro is a dual-SIM smartphone that supports 5G connectivity. It also supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.2. Other than the fingerprint scanner, the device comes equipped with other sensors like an accelerometer, gyro, proximity and compass.
One gets to enjoy working on the Android 12 based Funtouch 12 OS. The home screen and the app drawer interface are easy to acquaint with. You can set up gesture navigation for yourself, change the fingerprint scan animation, lock screen and even charging animation.
However, a minor negative aspect is that the smartphone comes loaded with unnecessary applications. But on the plus side, no app crash was observed and switching between multiple applications is also smooth. The phone also does not get heated up easily.
Coming to the Vivo T1 Pro camera review, it comes with a 64MP+8MP+2MP triple rear camera setup, along with a 16MP front selfie camera. There are multiple zoom modes offered, but only for the rear camera. The clarity of images starts degrading from 3x and above. Videos can be recorded in up to 4k resolution at a 30fps frame rate from the rear camera and up to 1080p at 30fps from the front.
The camera interface has a very efficient design. Most tools are accessible right away, without one having to open the camera settings. Moreover, the camera also provides you with a Level tool which helps in levelling your shots in case the camera’s position is not linear or stable.
The standard rear camera Photo mode clicks great shots. In daylight, the colours appear close to reality while the clarity of the captures is commendable. The Portrait mode is one step ahead, and combined with the bokeh effect, makes pictures come alive. However, in low light, a slight greenish tint was observed in the Photo mode captures. The rear camera’s Night mode does correct the tint and brightens up the shot, although the colours get faded a little. But the end result produced is quite decent, overall.
Images taken from the 64MP mode are even more vivid. The details are captured pretty well. Some may observe the contrast to be a little on the upside. The whites in the shot also increase. But under the right external conditions, this may also work in your favour.
Selfies from the front camera are also impressive. The details are captured thoroughly and the colours and skin tones are very close to reality. The selfie camera Portrait mode provides you with a wide range of beautification tools like facial features and skin tone adjustments, buffing and more. You can tweak these in real-time to achieve your desired effects. You can also set the focus of the aperture and select filters for your images.
All in all, the camera package offered with the Vivo T1 Pro 5G is pretty decent for its price range.
To sum up, the Vivo T1 Pro 5G is a decent smartphone in its price range. The various features it offers with its package neither stand out exceptionally, nor lack in quality, and therefore stand somewhere in the middle. Its body design is appreciative while the display gives a nice visual experience during streaming and gaming.
The device delivers pretty smooth performance and the cameras are also fair. Geekbench 5 CPU benchmarking gives it a single-core score of 754 and a multi-core score of 2,700. Only a few comparable smartphones score higher than it. It is certainly a significant upgrade over feature phones. However, we would leave it to you to weigh its pros and cons according to your requirements and make a buying decision on it. As for us, we do not mind the kind of good features this smartphone offers at the price point.
The Vivo T1 Pro 5G comes at a starting price of Rs 23,999.
