Vivo X90 Pro 5G: 4 good reasons to purchase it, 1 key reason to pass

From Aman Rashid Vivo recently unveiled their newest flagship smartphone, the Vivo X90 Pro 5G, in India, skipping the X90 Pro Plus. The price of the phone is Rs 84,999 for the single 12GB RAM + 256GB storage model. Vivo has therefore moved forward at full speed, in contrast to iQOO and OnePlus, demonstrating that the business is not afraid to test the waters in the luxury smartphone sector, which is often controlled by companies like Samsung and Apple.

Of course, the Vivo X90 Pro 5G has every feature you could ask for in a high-end flagship smartphone, and it costs a pretty penny. But did they go far enough? Should you get a high-end Vivo phone for roughly Rs 85,000 rather than a Samsung S23 or an iPhone 14? Nevertheless, we've provided you with 4 compelling arguments for purchasing the Vivo X90 Pro and 1 compelling argument against doing so.

The Vivo X90 Pro 5G's camera, on which the company has worked closely with Zeiss, is undoubtedly its KSP. The 50MP primary camera, which uses a 1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor, is located at the back. This has a 12MP ultra-wide angle camera and a 50MP portrait lens. A 32MP selfie camera is located on the front. There are a tonne of modes and functions available in the camera app.

After utilising the Vivo X90 Pro 5G's camera, I can categorically state that it performs above and beyond expectations. There is no shutter lag when taking pictures and the camera software itself launches quickly. When there is enough light, the Vivo X90 Pro's camera can capture some stunning images with fine detail. The images' dynamic range is excellent, and I was particularly taken with the huge 1" sensor's natural bokeh in some of them. Apart from this, the colours appear to be consistent between the three lenses. Beautiful skin tones, a deep background blur, and a perfect subject-to-background separation are all characteristics of excellent portrait photography. Photos taken at night are amazing 

Skin tones are expertly captured, the backdrop blur in portrait photography is substantial, and the subject's background separation is perfect. Even in the darkest hours, the Vivo X90 Pro will not let you down with its ability to produce good results for your night shots, which are equally remarkable.

The benefits of a bigger sensor, including improved low-light performance, a shorter depth of field, and higher image fidelity, are going to be greatly appreciated by photography aficionados, to put it briefly.

Additionally, the Vivo X90 Pro 5G's software experience is also good. As you can see, Funtouch OS is now functional after the main problems from previous versions were fixed. It's encouraging to note that even the pre-installed software, or "bloatware," was kept to a minimal. Additionally, Funtouch OS generally complies with the requirements of Android 13 and doesn't obtrusively change Android in order to stand out. Users who switch from Samsung or Google should have no trouble navigating the interface as a result.

With a 4,870mAh battery inside, the Vivo X90 Pro 5G provides a respectable battery life. In reality, the phone may go the entire day on a single charge when used moderately to heavily. Now, if you use your phone a lot, the battery may run out sooner than usual, requiring you to charge it sooner than usual. However, that is actually not a bad thing. As you can see, the Vivo X90 Pro supports 120W fast charging. Therefore, it is a good sign if your phone can operate for a whole day on a single charge. However, even if it doesn't, you can essentially plug in the charger whenever you want, and a full charge typically takes about 25 minutes.

Even though the Vivo X90 Pro is excellent for what it's worth, the Vivo X90 is still a really great price. If you choose the regular model with 8GB RAM, the Vivo X90 Pro will set you back Rs 25,000 more than the standard model. In fact, there is a significant Rs 21,000 pricing difference even if you choose the exact 12GB + 256GB edition of the Vivo X90 over the Vivo X90 Pro.

For those who don't know, the Vivo X90 Pro offers a leather back finish, an IP68 rating, and a 1" Sony IMX989 image sensor for the primary rear camera for an additional Rs 21,000. That's all there is, yes. True, the X90 Pro's photographic skills have improved thanks to the 1" primary camera,

However, the Vivo X90's camera is quite exceptional on its own. You see, the Vivo X90 Pro is an obvious pick for that pure camera performance, thanks to the 1" sensor and the superior portrait lens. Although the Vivo X90 is a very capable cameraphone in and of itself, choosing the regular model will save you a tonne of money while still giving you access to the same high-caliber performance as the X90 Pro.
