Weekly poll results: vivo X50 Pro+ wins over the fans as it didn’t underestimate the chipset

Last week’s poll is a good example of the appeal that cutting-edge flagships have. The vivo X50 Pro+ won hands-down – being the only one with a flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 865, certainly made a big difference. The 120Hz refresh rate certainly helped as well.

And let’s not forget that the plus model is the first phone to use the Samsung ISOCELL GN1 – a large 1/1.3” sensor that’s optimized for low-light shooting. It has a native pixel size of 1.2µm, which grows to 2.4µm thanks to the Tetracell technology (i.e. the Quad Bayer filter).

The vivo X50 Pro suffered a surprising defeat – its gimbal camera is unique and eye catching, but it couldn’t carry the phone to victory all by itself. Maybe vivo should consider a version of this phone with a flagship chipset, marrying the gimbal camera with an S865 could be a winning recipe. Or maybe reviews will show that a gimbal camera is a must-have feature for your next phone, we’ll see.

Finally, the vivo X50 may not have the camera chops of the other two, but it makes for a solid mid-ranger. It’s based on the same platform as the Pro, but the 6.56” 90Hz AMOLED screen is flat, which appeals to some.

Ultimately, those looking for cutting edge tech won’t accept halfway solutions – if the phone has a top shelf camera, manufacturers should make sure it has a top shelf chipset to match.
