Smartphone Review, Vivo iQOO 8 Pro

Smartphone Review, Vivo iQOO 8 Pro -We're back in smartphone city today. I got an interesting one this time around, I could has been historically for Vivo the line of phones oriented more towards the kind of gamer audience and people who value performance and general speediness of the device is very highly. So we've always seen a top-of-the-line processors in those forms usually accompanied by the fastest available charging speed. And these two things have always been the headliners of previous I could devices today. I've got the newest top-of-the-line model from the iQOO 8 Pro. This is theiQOO 8 Pro from As you can see in there BMW Motorsport Edition, but we'll talk looks in a minute. The most important thing to say up front is that for me? This form is the sign that evil is looking to move away from the whole idea that the iQOO 8 Pro is strictly focused on performance while somewhat lacking in other areas. Today. There will be quite a bit of comparing this phone to the previous cycle model, which was the iQOO 7  that came out, not that long ago, really it was in January this year. So less than a year.

And I have to say that Vivo iQOO 8 Pro  bring some major. I mean, major improvements along with even some class-leading solutions. Let's start with that. Shall we? There is one thing in this Vivo iQOO 8 Pro that is better than in any other smartphone first. When I read that it has quote a 3D ultra Sonic fingerprint scanner. I was like, yeah, whatever. Many other phones have ultrasonic scanners and they're far from perfect, lots of times and the 3D is probably just some marketing slogan. So I wasn't paying that much attention to that. But now that I've used it it really is something.

Let's start with the procedure of adding, the fingerprint. As you can see, we immediately notice how much bigger than usual. This scanner is also. In order to add our fingerprint. We no longer need to do the long and tedious process of pressing our finger over and over, and then also scanning the edges of our finger. You simply press, and hold, for two seconds, and voila. It's that simple. And in general is so much better than any other display.

Companies covering any other phone. It's very big doesn't matter which part of the scanner. You touch it, instantly unlocks like a snap. I dare to say that it is the best fingerprint scanner in any point today, period. I know there are some people who prefer either the ones on the back, or on the side of the phone, but most of the complaints on about the scanners under the display. We're always that, they're not reliable enough. This one right here is more reliable than any other scanner I've ever used and it's also so big that I don't even have to look at my phone when I'm unlocking it because my thumb is already somewhere in the vicinity of the scanning area. It's just amazing. That is really a huge technological leap compared to the ones we've had so far and I hope this type of a scanner Finds Its way too many other devices.

Moving on the next great thing that we are getting is the top-of-the-line screen. We've got a very crisp display. Thanks to the 1440p plastic as well as best possible performance. Thanks to a variable refresh rate. That an lto AMOLED screen brings. The screen is also a pretty major upgrade. Over the one in the iq7. The screen was only 1080P and Wiley did support hundred and twenty Hertz refresh rate. It wasn't able to dynamically adjust it as well as.

Lto panel does the new. Our display is also noticeably brighter at 1500 meets Max brightness, which helps a lot under direct sunlight. Looks haven't changed too much. If we were talking about the BMW addition. We've got a white back with a vertical, stripe, that resembles the stripes, we can find on BMW Motorsport cars. The material used on the back panel is interesting. It's not that fake leather. We've seen on The X 60 Pro Plus. It's more chorus kind of feels like a mild. Sandpaper, it does quite a bit of friction which helps a lot to keep hold of the phone apart from. That is not a whole lot has changed on the back. But for me granted, I'm a bit biased towards White phones. It looks great. I also like the extremely vibrant blue power button. I think it contrasts nicely with the rather muted back. And if the stripe is not your jam, we've also got a case in the box, which drops the stripe, but instead, probably acknowledges that the device was made in partnership with BMW the Casey

 To be made from a similar material to the back panel of the phone, but it's, it's More rough. It's kind of crosses their comfortable line for me. It's a bit too rough. I can imagine it might make your hands dry pretty quickly moving along with some more upgrades from the last generation the cameras. This is the part that for me shows that I could is no longer focused strictly on the performance aspect, the camera system is vastly improved. You've got a very potent main camera IMX 7 6 6, which is the same sensor that's used in many high-end phones. Like the Oppo Find x 3 Pro for Ample on top of that, it comes with the five axis gimbal stabilization system from the Vivo x 60 Pro Plus. I mean, that's very solid and totally not what I expected at. All the game of States seem like a feature, that people would continue to reserve for their top of the line phones from the XP. Deus. And looks like, they decided differently. The gimbal got moved from the ultralight to the main camera. This time around, which helps with while shooting video while moving as well as the photos.

Especially in low light, the gimbal gimbal helps to keep the camera steady while taking photos with night mode. So, that more Light reaches, the sensor. Similarly to how in digital cameras and IBC, you need to help shooting handheld with longer, exposure times. From this perspective. The gimbal is more useful on the more potent main camera to further, push low, light capabilities. However, it might be better used on the ultraviolet, like, on the x-series. If your goal is, for example, blogging, where the ultralight camera might seem like a More suited one thanks to its wider field of view. The remaining two cameras have also been improved. The telephoto has slightly larger aperture down to F 2 .2 now and it's also capable of 2 .5 x optical zoom. The ultra white also got a noticeable upgrade. It uses a IMX 598. Now it's a forty, eight megapixel one right now with a noticeably larger sensor. So ultra white photos are also much better right now, in terms of video. We've got 8K

Right now, it doesn't matter to me, but it might to you if you're looking for the most people possible. But mind you, the gimbal stabilization is disabled once you switch to 8K, so hope you have steady hands or you want to shoot on a tripod because otherwise it's very Shake in terms of 4K. Here is a clip of me walking. So you can check out how stabilities and it's also possible to switch lenses. While favoring. I switch to the telephoto during this video. Unfortunately. It's not a a very fluid transition button. At least there is an option.
