The First Impression of vivo X50 Pro - Cheer for X-Class
A “Mahjong card” look alike rear camera is the most popular visual element in the mobile phone market this year.
Regardless of its positioning, you can see a product with a large bump on the back isn’t fairly common on the market. Because of this, the design on the back of the X50 series is very valuable.
If all of them are lowered to the same plane and viewed, all cameras are still enclosed within a large rectangle.
This is the most familiar styling scheme in the market and the most mature developed by the manufacturer. For models such as the X series that need to be sold on their shoulders, it seems to be a safe prerequisite for the removal of errors.
On this basis, the method of separating the medium and small rectangles within the large rectangle is a magical technique.
“A picturesque disorder” is the best description for it. If you love Info-bar’s UI aesthetics like the author, I believe you will also praise the X50 series for its handling.
In addition, the idea of ”resolving” the thickness of the micro-head with the concept of steps (although it is only required by X50 Pro, but the design language is unified throughout the series), it also further increases the visual dislocation from the side.
Although vivo’s marketing point “Double Cloud Stage” is named after this, in my opinion, its role is more so as the icing on the cake.
After combining the two dimensions of the design, the familiar but surprising X50 series became recognizable at once.
Fortunately, in the era of one side/back of the thousand faculties, there are people from time to time who can “turn decay into magic” with a little ingenuity.
The Best Hand-on Experience - Light, but Texture for Design
The light weight design is yet another strong point of the X50 series. Regardless of the slimmest X50 (7.49mm thick and 173g heavy), the thickness and weight of the X50 Pro and Pro+ covered in this article are also well controlled.
The Pro model has a weight of 181.5g and a thickness of 8.04mm, which can be said to be the best balance between function and sense of existence in the series.
While the camel pigment leather version of Pro+ weighs 191.1g and is 9.48mm thick, the two specifications of the glass version are 8.83mm and 192.2g respectively.
It is also lightweight among products of the same level, and the plain leather version is more suitable for “streaking” without the need for a protective cover, which can be regarded as an invisible advantage to some extent.
Thinnest Display - Good feeling for hands and Excellent view for eyes
With the support of curved screens, X50 Pro and Pro+ are also very thin in appearance. vivo’s handling of the edges of the battery compartment is also very smooth, giving the device a great grip.
Especially the middle frame of Pro+ has Matte treatment. It feels very easy to hold and use. Of course, the potential risk of false touches caused by curved screens may dissuade some consumers.
The level of importance between operation and beauty depends on one’s personal choice. Another bit of regret is that these two machines are not equipped with linear motors. The design of the body is so good, but it is lacking in this part of the experience, which I have to say is a pity.
It is worth mentioning that this time vivo deliberately made the top and the bottom of the X50 series into a completely flat surface, which is relatively rare in recent products (the author has an inexplicable favor for phones that can “stand up” vertically on their own weight, I wonder if the readers have similar interests?).
Among them, the top position is embedded with a piece of glass. A closer look at the model can reveal this little change, but I really can’t associate it with the choker concept promoted by vivo.
Perhaps the female users who are more likely to be attracted by the X series, as they have been for a long time will understand the mystery of this design better.
