Do you want to know more about the smartphone? Check out our review of the smartphone below.
vivo X60 Review: Design and construction
vivo’s smartphones these years were really pleasing to the eye and the X60 does really pack a beautiful and ergonomic design that everyone will love. The design of the smartphone is exceptional as this one also features a frosted glass black which was really premium and has flagship feels. Definitely one of the best-designed vivo smartphones out there.
The curves at the back are ergonomic and the smartphone does come with a thin and sleek profile despite having 5G inside. As for the camera, this one does come with a protruding camera module but man, it wasn’t thick compared to other smartphones in the market and then there’s the ZEISS logo too on the camera which makes the vivo X60 looks clean.
As for the ports, the vivo X60 doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack but it does come with a dongle out of the box and as for the USB-C port, it’s located below and the smartphone does support 33W Fast Charging
vivo X60 Review: Display
The vivo X60 uses a 6.56-inch AMOLED Full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate and the display of the smartphone is just excellent. I love the colors and the details of the X60’s display. The contrast was great and everything was smooth on the display.
Gaming on the display was awesome too as the smartphone does have a fast refresh rate and the touch response of the smartphone was really well. As for movies, this smartphone comes with HDR10+ and if you’re watching something that supports that tech, it really adds beauty and excitement to the display of the smartphone.
vivo X60 Review: Battery life
The vivo X60 comes with a 4300mAh battery and the smartphone does feature a good battery life for a flagship smartphone. Thanks to the large battery and the efficiency of the Snapdragon 870 inside, we got a PC Mark Work 2.0 battery life of 15 hours and 41 minutes
vivo X60 Review: Software and performance
The vivo X60 comes with the latest FunTouchOS 11 and it’s cleaner than ever. It’s based on Android 11 and everything on the software was smooth and there might be some included applications on the smartphone but most of them are pretty useful.
As for the performance, the vivo X60 didn’t fail to impress me as the Snapdragon 870 chipset from Qualcomm inside it was one of the best chipsets that I’ve ever tried as this one features powerful performance and also good thermals. It doesn’t have the X1 Prime core like the Snapdragon 888 but it handles games and heavy apps pretty well at cooler temperatures.
