Vivo X60 Pro Review: 2021’s best smartphone from Vivo

The X60 series, which debuted in late 2020 in China and in 2021 internationally, is Vivo's main 2021 smartphone range. In most places, only the Vivo X60 Pro is accessible.
This is a high-end smartphone with a price that competes with the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Samsung Galaxy S21. We are unable to offer the Vivo X60 Pro a higher rating because its features fall short of those of other powerhouses.

The Vivo X60 Pro didn't have as good of a battery life as we'd like, and there were some user interface issues, but neither of these flaws significantly detracts from the phone's overall usability.

Vivo X60 Pro Review

The Vivo X60 Pro weighs 179g, making it lighter than many large smartphones in this price category. It is also thin, measuring 158.6 x 73.2 x 7.9mm.
The phone lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack but does have a USB-C connector, volume rocker, and power button. All the controls were easy to reach, and we could use the phone with one hand.

Glass makes up the phone's back and display, and metal makes up the frame. Although it feels and looks classy, it might not be as durable as a plastic device.

A rectangular camera array that doesn't stick out or make it difficult to carry it in your pocket is located on the rear.


For its price, the Vivo X60 Pro's screen looks ordinary, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. The display is 6.56 inches in size and has a camera cutout at the top. It features very small bezels.

FHD+, or 1080 x 2376 resolution, is average for smartphones but falls short of the 2K screens on the Xiaomi Mi 11 or Samsung Galaxy S20. AMOLED with HDR10+ results in intense, vivid colours.

Top competitors like Xiaomi, Samsung, and Oppo have screens with higher resolution and more specialised functions than this one.

The screen refreshes at 120Hz, like on the majority of new luxury phones, while older, less expensive phones use 60Hz. This facilitates navigation and gaming, but it quickly depletes energy. If you like, you may reduce to 60Hz or pick a smart-switch mode that alternates between the two.


With one front and three back cameras, the Vivo X60 Pro. We were awed by the 48MP f/1.5 rear camera. Bright and detailed images were captured, and the lens' built-in gimbal stabiliser helped to reduce camera shake.

For better or worse, it appeared that post-processing was mostly responsible for image quality. The dynamic range was reduced in bigger photographs of parks or skylines, while it was increased in close-ups of food and other objects. However, a photo-editing application might make them better.

Darker sections of otherwise well-lit photographs were "crushed" to black or nearly black, rendering them impossible to identify features from one another and making them appear muddy in comparison to more bright areas elsewhere in the image.

A 13MP f/2.5 telephoto camera with optical zoom up to 2x is used as the second back camera for zoom photography. Such a lens is lacking in many premium phones. The colour and detail in the pictures taken with this camera were superb, but the blacks were very light.

Up to 20x digital zoom is possible, however the photographs captured at the long end of the zoom range were too hazy to be useful.


We weren't sure if the Vivo X60 Pro's 4,200mAh battery would last all day because it is 300mAh smaller than the batteries in the OnePlus 9 and Oppo Find X3 Neo, two contemporary smartphones.
We typically had battery life remaining by evening if we simply texted or streamed music while the phone was in our pocket all day. We frequently faced battery issues due to heavy usage, such as playing Call of Duty: Mobile, snapping pictures, and using social media.

A power-saving mode on the Vivo X60 Pro reduces battery use by disabling background syncing, limiting internet usage to 4G speeds, activating dark mode, and more. This phone might not be for you if you frequently use your phone or experience battery problems.

The Mi 11 charges at 55W, while the OnePlus 9 series requires 65W, but the Galaxy S21 requires only 25W.

Fast charging is a feature that is becoming expected on high-end smartphones, but it is absent from the Vivo.
