When prices are going to heaven, Vivo brings flagship specs for mid range price.
It would be obvious choice otherwise, getting flagship for 1/3 price, but new electronic ND filter from Samsung, As update even, is something no brand can afford.
Besides that, not every brands offer hi res raws, which I like a lot.
To choose tho, I would rather have foldable with those specs, but prices say no.
My next phone may be virtual one, as in VR emulating phone, considering what we get for those prices - that phones/folds come with - is worth less than some update.
I would rather attach a lens to VR and use it with right sw, I could emulate any phone or hw.

Sharp marketshare is basically midranges.
Pixel is A series.
Samsung is A3x/A5x series.
Oppo A series (in Taiwan).
no thanks, both to big, no 3.5mm and a dimensity soc so no potential for custom rom.
I hope the Pro plus comes with a flat panel! I'm not going back to curved panels.
77, 19 Nov 2023Definitely agree, fugly P0$ get rid off that. ™I mean, it's for looks. But yeah, just useless except for looking good.
great specs but ... no money at this time !
ArT, 19 Nov 2023Thanks for the info. can you please tell me what to expect? I am willing to pay for the x100 w... moreMy current phone is the x90pp. OriginOS is great, once you get past optimisation and notification settings.
The phone doesn't do what normal global roms do and open messaging apps on phone startup, or check for messages. So you have to set each individual app to high power background usage, allow it to start on phone boot up. Then give it notification permissions. Bit of a pain but I don't get notifications from Groupon anymore. Also with all the chinese apps, you have to use adb and a computer to delete certain chinese apps, not all can be uninstalled on the phone. Trading shenzhen has a video showing how it can be done. But still a pain in the backside to just start using a phone. It's all worth it if camera quality is what you're prioritizing though
Hope this helps :)
IpsDisplay, 19 Nov 2023Come on you know that will never go global Yes... of course they are taking the global market too calmly...

I am willing to pay for the x100 with origin os(vivo brand is not in my country and i must buy it from china.) is it impossible to install non Chinese apps on origin os? what was your problem with it?
Badly positioned optical fingerprint scanner at this price point is quite sad
Maybe the x100 pro plus, only, if finaliy its global version come to Europe. And, assuming that it will has two teleobjetives.
Notafanboy-Fanboy, 19 Nov 2023The next Honor Magic 6 Pro, in addition to mounting the latest SD chipset, will have an OV50K ... moreObsolete?! Why? Just because has a year or two from the launch? There's anything else better on the market in this moment?
The next Honor Magic 6 Pro, in addition to mounting the latest SD chipset, will have an OV50K sensor and will be the first in the world to have it.
This would make the OV50K the only 1-inch smartphone sensor after the popular and now obsolete Sony IMX989, which is the one on this Vivo phone.
The zoom reach isn't good enough. Give me a 120mm periscope.
justasmile, 19 Nov 2023They aren't tempting me with that curved screen.Definitely agree, fugly P0$ get rid off that.
JakoDel, 19 Nov 2023may I ask what were those annoyances? some say they fixed the notifications issues, some say t... moreYes, serious issues with notifications. I believe they FINALLY fixed it (after I got rid of my Vivo of course) but there was a problem with receiving ANY notifications whenever dark mode was enabled... Personally on all my phones I set up dark mode to enable itself automatically after sunset, so yea, I would not receive any notifications on my Vivo after sunset lol. The only fix was to use normal light mode 24/7.
