When we hear the vivo brand, the first thing that comes into our mind is that the smartphone is made for selfies or for vloggers but not anymore as there’s a brand new smartphone series from the brand and it’s for us gamers and it’s the vivo T series and we got one the most affordable in the series — the vivo T1x. So what do I think about it? Check it out in our unboxing and first impressions below.
Inside the box
The vivo T1x does have a clean white box and the one that we got for review comes in 4GB of RAM and also 64GB of internal storage. Inside the box, we got everything that we need, of course we got the smartphone and also there’s the jelly case inside the box as well. For the charger, the smartphone comes with 18W of charger and also a USB-C to USB-A cable.
For the design of the smartphone, the vivo T1x comes with a frosted look at the back which not only minimizes the fingerprints at the back of the smartphone but it also adds some premium into the look of the smartphone.
There’s a flat back and also a flat frame as well which might not be too handy for some hands but in my case, I find it just fine as the weight and the materials used in the smartphone isn’t heavy or stressful to my hands which is very important for gamers.
On the side, the smartphone features a fingerprint scanner and also a volume rocker and below, there’s the USB-C port along with the speaker grill and also the headphone jack. I was happy to see that there’s the headphone jack on this smartphone since this one is still in the affordable segment
For the display of the smartphone there’s the fairly large 6.58-inch display with Full HD+ resolution. That might give you a better look at the display when it comes to gaming and also for watching movies and honestly, I wouldn’t care about 90hz display here if it isn’t AMOLED.
For the camera, the smartphone features a 50MP + 2MP + 2MP camera setup while for the front camera, the smartphone features an 8MP selfie camera and overall, the quality that we got is what we can expect from a smartphone at its price range. It’s definitely not the best but it will do its job for everyday usage.
Software and performance
For the software of the smartphone, this one comes with FunTouch OS 12 and everything was smooth and the colors of the UI are easy on the eyes and it’s very user-friendly so I really had no problems with it. As for the performance, we got here a Snapdragon 680 processor which is new but it’s decent enough and capable to run most games in the market, however, don’t expect the highest settings on this one.
And for its price, I was actually surprise that vivo has managed to bring in some competition to the affordable smartphone market with this chip as this one will bring a lot of improvements when it comes to playing the latest games including Ni No Kuni and even Genshin Impact
Overall, I’m really happy that vivo has finally made a smartphone that is made for users who are looking for the best performance for its price. So far, I’m enjoying what I got from the smartphone as it features a powerful performance inside and a decent design outside.
