Vivo X70 Pro has small dimensions. It lies nicely in the palm, although it has a slightly elongated shape. The most interesting thing about it is the material the back panel is made of. The latter is covered by a layer of Fluorite AG - it makes it stylish and elegant. Along with that, it is pleasant to the touch. If you take a look at the back, you will notice that under the light you can see small glowing dots reminiscent of a starry sky.

No fingerprints are left on the matt structure of the back. This allows the user to use it without a case.


In recent times, it is hard to imagine a flagship without an AMOLED display. The Vivo X70 Pro is equipped with a 6.56-inch curved AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.8:9 and a resolution of 2376 x 1080 pixels. The screen relative to the entire front takes up 92.7% of it. This is a pretty high percentage that speaks well for the perception while handling the Vivo X70 Pro. Here is the time to mention that the picture refresh rate is 120 Hz, which ensures smoothness and a high level of satisfaction while watching videos and other content.

Vivo X70 Pro is equipped with an eye protection mode against blue light. From the settings, you can select dark theme, font size, color mode and color temperature.

As for the fingerprint scanner, it's built into the screen. It works perfectly.


Underneath the body of the Vivo X70 Pro lies an octa-core Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888+ 5G chipset, which is made using 6nm technology. It is complemented by Adreno 660 graphics and 8 or 12 GB of RAM depending on the modification. Storage can be 256 or 512 GB, and the manufacturer has not provided a memory card slot. You need to think carefully about the choice of modification.

Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888+ 5G allows the Vivo X70 Pro to quickly handle heavy tasks, including games that intensively use the GPU.

For gamers, it will be interesting to know that the smartphone features a dedicated mode. It allows to block notifications while playing, improving visuals, sound quality and sound effects.


The set of cameras in the Vivo X70 Pro provokes a positive review. The modern market abounds with smartphones that boast quality optics. This model is among them and boasts a product of the German company Zeiss AG.

The rear camera is quad-camera, with the main module being 50-megapixel. It is complemented by an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor, which has an f/3.4 resolution, and a 12-megapixel phone module with a double zoom. We can't help but mention the ultra-wide-angle camera, which is 48-megapixel. For better photo quality, dual LED dual-tone flash and an exciting array of shooting modes are provided.

The selfie camera in turn is single and wide-angle. You can record 4K quality videos with it, and 8K, 4K and 1080 pixels with the rear one.

In the Vivo X70 Pro's camera app, you'll find several Zeiss-style portrait mode filters. The video shooting capabilities are above average. The front camera will surprise you with excellent facial details. The sensor detects the light level and increases the brightness for better exposure.

Autonomous operation

Vivo X70 Pro has a large enough battery. Its capacity is 4450 mAh and provides a day's work without a problem. The autonomy of the device meets the indicators of competitors.

FlashCharge fast charging technology via USB Type-C is also supported. With the help of the charger, you can regain the full battery charge in less than 60 minutes. The manufacturer has also equipped it with wireless and reverse wireless charging. This will definitely appeal to users who like to keep up with innovation.


The Vivo X70 Pro is a worthy representative of the smartphone market in 2021. It will appeal with its array of cameras, performance and beautiful looks. Among its plus points is protection against water and dust to IP68 standard.
