Inside the box is the phone, a charger, a SIM ejector tool, a user manual, a CD which contains the handset’s manual, an earphone. The phone is 4.2-inches in size and with a smaller battery is lighter than its predecessor, as the phone weighs 140g. The phone is one of the lightest in the smartphone category, making it extremely easy to operate, and the chamfered edges and 2.5D curved glass give a premium look to the phone. Design As mentioned earlier, the phone has a lighter frame and is highly portable. While the antenna bands are visible at the back, the phone is easily transportable as it weighs just 140g. The dimensions of the phone are 126.7×62.3×11.3mm, making it smaller in size compared to other smartphones in the market.
Unlike the previous Vivo X series phones which followed the common design of their home country, the Vivo X60 sports a nice mix of bold and understated design, with a display that is just 6.97 mm thin. The highlight of the smartphone is the IPS display which helps maintain the screen brightness levels, and the display also gets the claimed Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for a further layer of protection. Talking about the specs, the Vivo X60 features a 5.5-inch display with an HD resolution, and the display looks crisp and vibrant. For a device with a display of this size, there is no noticeable dead spot or color bleeding, and the screen also gets support for a 10-finger capacitive touch.
Powering the phone is a quad-core MediaTek MT6592 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage, and is further expandable up to 32GB using a micro SD card slot. I played some of the most popular games on the X60 without any issues, and I never had the phone lag. Though I can’t speak for the CPU throttling, since I never played games for longer than 15 minutes and I didn’t notice any “ding” or load spike. I did have a rather rare issue when the camera launched, which was the screen went black for a few seconds before returning to normal. For the selfie enthusiasts, the 8MP camera with autofocus can shoot decent pictures, and the display works pretty well for looking at selfies and watching videos.
After introducing an AMOLED panel in the Vivo X20 Plus UD, Vivo stuck with the previous design language. The body remains thin and sleek, which lets Vivo keep the external dimensions of 143.19 x 69.12 x 8.94 mm. However, we were a little surprised by the omission of a fingerprint scanner. One of the major highlights of the Vivo X20 Plus UD is its dual-camera setup, and the company makes no changes to it here, as the X60 bears a 13MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash, while a 5MP secondary camera takes care of the depth sensing. As is usually the case, both cameras support portrait mode and a bokeh effect as well. Up front is a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies.
One of the reasons why people pick a device like the X60 over other devices is due to the manufacturer’s promise to launch apps from Google Play which are in accordance with the company’s philosophy. The Jovi AI assistant and Facebook integration are both launched via these apps. The artificial intelligence aspect and Facebook integration are actually useful and have been found to be accurate in their predictive and conversational nature in several hands on reviews.
The X60 is still an incredible device, however the high cost is a turn off and that does hurt the overall cost. On the bright side, it’s still one of the best options in its price range and one that will never disappoint the user. Pros Excellent build quality Decent display Long battery life Good camera Cons High price Low resolution display Low internal storage Poor battery life No fingerprint scanner Who Is This For This is the perfect device for a users who are looking for a great camera, but also has more of an attention to detail that they can appreciate. If you like the looks of this phone, you should also look at the Vivo X20 Plus UD.
