vivo T1x (4G) (4GB+64GB) – Full Review

We had the vivo T1x for almost a week now going through some camera test and played games on it. There were a few items we wish we wanted to have on the vivo T1x but the good features still stood out and we’re happy to share them with you.

So, let’s see if the vivo T1x will bring value-for-money and elevate the user experience with its built-in features for an entry-level phone.

Recap

So, let’s run down some of the features we’ve shared during our first impression.

Inside the box, you’ll have the vivo T1x unit, SIM ejector tool, USB C cable, 18W power adapter, clear protective case, quick start guide, warranty card and screen protector that’s already pre-applied.

The vivo T1x is priced at PHP8,999 with two available colorways the Gravity Black and our test unit in the Space Blue.

The Space Blue gets a nice frosted coating with reflective mirror-like effect on the back panel that emits different shades of blue when turned sideways. The glossy back cover is made of durable plastic while the frame is made of metal.

The front has a tear drop notch design for the front facing camera with bezels all-around the display are slightly slim except for the bottom chin. 

It has a triple camera setup with a LED flash housed in a rectangular camera module design located on the top left corner.

The screen of the vivo T1x gets a large 6.58-inch Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate for a smooth scrolling experience. Inside, you have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 octa-core processor up to 2.4 GHz, 4GB memory with additional extended RAM up to 1GB and 64GB internal storage expandable up to 1TB.

Design and Display

The vivo T1x weighs 182 grams with a thickness of 8mm and gets a 90.6% screen-to-body ratio perfect for watching your favorite content or playing games. It is light and even comfortable to hold with just one hand while scrolling on the display.

As for the colors on the display, they all look fine to me with the texts are sharp, vibrant and decent brightness. When used indoors the screen looks very appelaing with good viewing angles but struggles a bit during outdoors on direct sunlight.

In general, the vivo T1x is a good looking phone and display is just remarkable even at its price point.

Performance 

We tried normal everyday tasks on the vivo T1x like browsing the internet, updating our social media, watching YouTube videos, made some few calls and so far, the phone performs very well thanks to the built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor.

The apps were able to function very smoothly due to the additional 1GB virtual RAM apart from the 4GB it has. For internal storage the 64GB may be not enough for some users but good thing you can expand it more via microSD up to 1TB.

Here are our benchmark scores on the vivo T1x.

  • Geekbench – 378 Single Core / 1526 Multi-Core Score
  • PC Mark – 7039 Work 3.0 Performance Score
  • 3D Mark – 447 (Average frame rate – fps: 2.70)
  • Disk Speed Test – Read 1030 MB/s and Write 232 MB/s

The speakers are coming mostly from the bottom speaker grille. Sound quality is reasonably average and too loud on its mids and high frequencies with less bass but voice quality is clear even in videos or music.

Turbo Ready for Gaming

The vivo T1x was introduced to be one of the best affordable gaming smartphone equipped with Turbo Ready specs and features. To deliver a seamless and immersive gaming experience to its users the vivo T1x has Multi-Turbo 5.0 and Ultra Game mode.

With Multi-Turbo 5.0 it optimizes the phones ability to handle the game by reducing stutters and lag by allocating, prioritizing and boosting its internal hardware resources from its processor, RAM, network and storage.

While the Ultra Game mode, when swipe sideways from the top left corner exposes the game sidebar, brings out some shortcut functions to further enhance your gaming performance. It has 4D game vibration, voice changer, enables background calls while supporting hands-free and hides floating notification alerts to avoid any interruption during gameplay. You can also select your preferred game type mode either in battery saver mode, balanced mode or performance mode.

Available graphic settings on the vivo T1x

It was able to run smoothly and we had a good time playing with some of the common mobile games with the vivo T1x like PUBG, Mobile Legends Bang Bang and Call of Duty. During game play test, we could feel a little heat building up in the back panel but still tolerable unlike other phones we tested.

Camera

As we’ve mentioned, the vivo T1x offers a triple camera setup that comprises of a 50MP f/1.8 main shooter, the second lens offers a 2MP f/2.4 depth camera and a 2MP f/2.4 macro camera. The front camera has an 8MP at f/1.8 aperture.

In the camera app, you can view far away subjects and take closer shots with up to 10x zoom capability. You also have four default shooting modes ready on the camera app with a night mode, portrait, photo, and video. You get an additional seven more with 50MP, pano, live photo, slo-mo, time-lapse, pro and documents.

Photos taken on the 50MP lens main camera with its f/1.8 aperture during outdoors with good lighting condition gave us pleasing results. The good thing with the f/1.8 aperture it was able to pick up more light into the sensor providing photos with good details, decent contrast and not too oversaturated colors.

Using the portrait mode, you can adjust the bokeh, choose some pre-set color style or enhance your facial features using the beauty filter. There’s a little struggle getting a good bokeh on the shots separating the subject to the background.

Selfies are also sharp with good details and gets a decent color production.

Here are some sample photos taken with the vivo T1x.

1x Photo – Outdoor Sunny Weather

1x Photo – Outdoor Cloudy Weather

2x Photo – Outdoor Cloudy Weather

1x Photo – Indoor Sunny Weather

1x Night Mode – Low Light Outdoor

Selfie – Outdoor Cloudy Weather

Selfie – Outdoor Sunny Weather

Photo mode Selfie – Low Light

Portrait mode – Low Light

Macro – Low Light

Main camera went close to the subject – Low Light

Video outputs can record with available resolutions of 1080p at 24/30fps or 720p at 24/30/60fps. It’s probably a step behind against other phones coming out with 4K capabilities however it may not be a deal breaker especially in this price range.

While selfie videos still have both existing resolutions but at 24 or 30 fps only.

Shooting videos on low light will produce more noise, but on good lighting conditions noise level will be much fewer during outdoor especially when the sun is bright.

Here’s a video sample:

Software

The vivo T1x runs on its very own user interface the FunTouch OS 12 based on Android 12.

It comes with pre-installed apps like Agoda, Facebook, Foodpanda, GCash, Grab, Lazada, Shopee, Spotify, TikTok, Twitter plus a lot more. You also get some standard apps from Google and proprietary apps from vivo.

If you want more games you can go to the Game Center or Hot Games folder to check out other suggested mobile games you can download or install to the phone.

Battery

The device comes with a large 5,000 mAh battery and vivo is nice enough to equip with an additional support up to 18W fast charging.

In our test, we had a 24% charge on the battery after 20 minutes then the next 15 minutes went up to only 38%. We had it fully charge from 0% to 100% almost 2 hours and 19 minutes.

Standby time when your phone is not that active could last up to 3 to 4 days but with normal day-to-day usage on the phone it can last you throughout the day. We experienced that if we had the volume and the display brightness at full levels, the phone slowly consumes more battery.

What We Like

  • Large Display
  • Decent Main Camera
  • Design and Build Quality
  • 5,000 mAh Battery with 18W Fast Charge
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 680
  • Game Optimization (Multi-Turbo 5.0 & Ultra Game mode)
  • Price

What We Want

  • Stereo Speakers
  • Ultra-wide Camera

Conclusion

What we liked about the vivo T1x are its good aesthetics, clear vibrant display, decent 50MP main camera and its large battery capacity.

As the phone is built to be Turbo Ready for mobile gamers, the phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 fast enough and capable to handle heavy games such as PUBG, Mobile Legends and more even at high settings for some selected games.

You are also equipped with gaming optimization and customization features like the Multi-turbo 5.0 and Ultra Game mode to enhance gameplay experience.

There are also some few drawbacks that we wish on the next vivo T series we could have them like stereo speakers, ultra-wide camera and higher RAM.

The pricing of the vivo T1x is also very appealing and probably one of the best budget-friendly phone worth considering buying today.
