INBUILT GIMBAL STABILIZATION SYSTEM. YES, YOU HEARD IT RIGHT! THIS NEVER-SEEN BEFORE FEATURE ON SMARTPHONES IS THE KEY SELLING POINT OF THE X50 PRO

Vivo’s X-series smartphones are generally camera and photography oriented, but with the X50 Pro, vivo has also focused on video stabilization and has included an inbuilt Gimbal stabilization system. Yes, you heard it right! This never-seen before feature on smartphones is the key selling point of the X50 Pro. We just got our hands-on this smartphone this week and were really excited to test its limits especially considering competition from brands like Samsung and fellow BBK electronic sub brands – OPPO, realme and OnePlus. So, without any further ado, let’s find out if the Vivo X50 Pro should be a contender for your next smartphone?

DESIGN

The Vivo X50 pro is indeed a beautiful phone. It comes in a gradient grey color which Vivo calls “Alpha Grey”. The design of the phone is a delicate one with flat tops, rounded corners, and curved edges. The curved edges also makes the phone very comfortable to hold though not being extra slim. The phone has a glass back with a velvet matte finish which is soft to feel and doesn’t attract fingerprint smears. At the sides, the usual volume rockers and power button are contained within an indent. It does have a noticeably protruding camera bump given that the gimbal stabilizer and optical zoom lens are housed in it.

DISPLAY

The phone has an almost full screen display with very little bezels at the top and bottom and no bezels at the sides due to the curved edges. It has a full HD 6.56” AMOLED screen that houses a punch hole notch in the upper corner for the front camera. The high refresh rate of 90Hz offers a very fluid playback and displays crisp images, movies, and games without smears or blurs. The X50 pro also features an in-display fingerprint scanner which is quick and very responsive and there’s facial recognition too if you prefer.
