Vivo X100 Pro Review: The Perfect All-Rounder Camera Phone for Everyday Folks

In the era of ever-more-extreme camera phone specs, Vivo X100 Pro strikes a skillful balance of broadly capable photography with no major compromises. While rivals obsessed over specialized lenses and shooting modes that only pros can master, Vivo simply focuses on nailing the basics for fantastic shots anyone can capture.

That’s not to say the X100 Pro lacks ambition in optics and processing. Zeiss super-telephoto camera and the fast 50 MP main camera of the Vivo X100 Pro flex their muscles in numerous sample photos.

Sporting a triple-camera setup, the Vivo X100 Pro boasts a 50-megapixel primary lens, a 50-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 50-megapixel periscope telephoto lens. When it comes to photography, Vivo X100 Pro truly shines, delivering excellent performance with accurate color reproduction and crystal-clear details. Shooters cover most common scenarios admirably and keeps things practical.

And the results speak for themselves. Be it portraits, landscapes, architecture, or spontaneous slice-of-life captures: the X100 Pro confidently delivers. AI Scene Recognition even auto-suggests optimal mode tweaks when pointing at common subjects.

More importantly, shots shine with balanced realism free of the overprocessed aesthetic plaguing some rivals chasing hype on spec sheets alone. Vivo simply lets its superb Zeiss optics and ample computational power for convincing imagery that everyday folks can truly appreciate.

That telephoto zoom also warrants shout-outs for crisp Zoom cameras in the Vivo X100 Pro take telephoto macros, perfect for concerts or sports events where you can’t get close. And the high-resolution main sensor leaves ample overhead for aggressive cropping and editing flexibility.

While camera buffs might still crave manual Override controls and weird niche sensors seen in latest Xiaomi or Sony devices, Vivo doesn’t forget about the casual user in its quest for imaging excellence. Intuitive auto modes, logical interface layouts, and a grippy comfortable chassis come together in a camera experience anyone can master.

Frankly, if garish filters and esoteric shooting formats don’t dominate your world, the Vivo X100 Pro presents today’s most well-rounded camera phone package. And handy perks like the voice assistant sweeten an already solid deal into contender for 2023 phone of the year!
