Vivo X60 Pro+ Review of the Latest Smartphone from Vivo



Vivo X60 Pro+ is the latest mid-tier smartphone from the Chinese mobile phone maker and is made of an aluminium body with a gradient finish. The Vivo X60 Pro+ is priced at Rs. 19,990 and will be available on Flipkart from May 14. The handset is only available in gradient colours and sports a dual camera setup on the back. The battery is a 3,130mAh unit that should provide for the basic usage needs of a phone of this kind. It is available in midnight black, fog gold, and sapphire blue colours. If you are looking for an iPhone X look-alike, this will do the trick for you. Design and Display The Vivo X60 Pro+ is made of an aluminium body, and has a glossy glass panel on the back. On the front is a 5.85-inch LCD screen with a HD+ resolution of 720×1520 pixels.



Vivo X60 Pro+ comes with a glass back panel on the back, while the front panel has a more glossy finish. This phone does not come with a fingerprint sensor, so you will need to use the facial recognition option for authenticating your identity. The good thing is that the smartphone does not feel as slippery as it looks like it would be. The use of a glass back panel does not offer any protection against scratches. Display The Vivo X60 Pro+ features a 5.45-inch 18:9 display with an HD+ resolution and a screen aspect ratio of 19:9. The screen on the Vivo X60 Pro+ is bright, with vibrant colours. You can adjust the screen temperature and adjust the brightness level to suit your taste. This is a decent IPS panel for a budget smartphone.

The X60 Pro+ features a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED panel with HD+ resolution (1520 x 720p) and 18.9:9 aspect ratio. The handset’s display covers almost the entire front of the phone, with only a thin chin and forehead between the screen and the Vivo logo. There is no notch in sight, as is the case with some smartphones. The display is bright and colourful, but suffers from poor viewing angles. The phone’s primary camera setup, on the other hand, houses a 12-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor for depth sensing. Vivo has used two 8-megapixel selfie cameras on the back and the front respectively, which provide acceptable shots, with enough details to be easily shareable online.



Vivo X60 Pro+ comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage, which is expandable by up to 128GB using a microSD card. The smartphone runs on the latest version of Vivo’s FunTouch OS, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. As is the case with most modern Vivo smartphones, the UI feels slick and the user interface is simple to navigate. As far as performance is concerned, I did not have any issues with the Vivo X60 Pro+ as far as daily usage is concerned. I also ran the benchmark tests and got quite a decent score of 1,18,000 in Geekbench 4. However, the real test is going to be if it really justifies the premium tag. The Vivo X60 Pro+ sports a 6.26-inch IPS LCD display, which is bright and offers a decent viewing experience.


Camera performance

Vivo X60 Pro+ is a mid-range smartphone, so we weren’t expecting miracles in terms of its camera performance. That being said, we were nonetheless pleasantly surprised at how well it performed in certain lighting conditions. The images captured are vibrant, colourful and very detailed. The camera takes good, well-lit photos and also performs well in low-light conditions as the auto-focus works well in most cases. However, if the lighting is too bright or the subject too far from the camera, pictures tend to come out patchy. We also noticed that the image processing can occasionally result in green hues being over-emphasised in some pictures. If you are someone who likes to tweak their pictures with a few customisation options, then this will be a struggle.

Battery life and charging speed

The first thing you notice about the Vivo X60 Pro+ is the fact that it sports a non-removable battery with 4,060mAh. In comparison, the iPhone X has a 2,716mAh battery and the OnePlus 6 has a 3,300mAh unit. The Vivo X60 Pro+ is powered by a 2GHz MediaTek Helio P22 processor and comes with 4GB of RAM. Vivo claims it can easily last a day on a single charge, and that’s a bold claim. All three phones support the Qi inductive charging standard, and all three support the ability to send audio through the USB Type-C port when a 3.5mm headphone jack is not present. The Vivo X60 Pro+ gets 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card). It supports dual SIMs and comes with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner.


Value for Money

Vivo had launched two devices at the India launch event — the Vivo X60A and Vivo X60 Pro+. The former is essentially the Vivo X60 in a different body with upgraded specifications, while the latter is the Vivo X60 Pro+. The first model, the X60A is priced at Rs. 14,990 and the X60 Pro+ is priced at Rs. 16,990. The phone is available exclusively on in Gold and Matte Black colour variants, with the Gold model sporting a gradient finish on the top. Given that Vivo has a similar feature on the Vivo Nex, this phone might find some buyers. Vivo has also launched a limited edition red variant, with black and red gradient finish. The phone’s front panel is made of glass and it measures 7.7mm in thickness and weighs 164 grams. It has a 4.



Vivo X60 Pro+ is the latest in the X60 series which is a rebranded version of the X60. The X60 Pro+ runs Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box with a display notch at the top and an iPhone X-like 6.3-inch Full HD+ screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a waterdrop notch, respectively. Also, it comes with a dual rear camera setup with AI features. But is the X60 Pro+ really worth the price of Rs 18,990? Let’s find out. Vivo X60 Pro+ specifications and features Vivo X60 Pro+ has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a waterdrop notch on top.
