vivo Z5x smartphone review

ByGraig Panayotou 2020-01-02 510

Good design is not only a perfect combination of artistry and practicality, but also needs to balance the balance between cost and price. Especially in the field of consumer electronics, "appearance" has become one of the decisive factors in the sales of a product. And the birth of a mobile phone, manufacturers need to consider many aspects: how to achieve the balance between cost and beauty, keep up with the trend without becoming conventional, is a very important theoretical basis.

For the flagship mobile phone, there is a lot of financial and technical support behind, & nbsp; is naturally "deep-pocketed" in the use of materials. Throughout the flagship models on the market, there are some shadows of each other. The application and popularization of new technologies require process and cost, as well as time to slowly precipitate. As for the thousand-yuan machine, in order to maintain the advantage of the price, it is natural to make a compromise on the cost. Today, there are still many people who think that the thousand-yuan machine is synonymous with low-cost and low-quality. The recent launch of the vivo Z5x has proved with practical action that the materials used for the thousand-yuan machine are also "very sufficient"!


As a thousand-yuan machine with a price of only 1398 yuan, the vivo Z5x can be described as "solid" in design. The pole full screen on the front of the fuselage stands out even among a number of flagship planes. In today's comprehensive screen tide, how to improve the screen ratio has become the first priority. In the past, most of the thousand-yuan models were designed with bangs or water droplets. After all, these solutions are relatively mature and cheaper. And this time vivo Z5x will directly "digging screen" this flagship configuration on a thousand yuan machine, with materials full of sincerity.


The 6.53-inch pole full screen has a 2340X1080 resolution and a screen share of up to 90.77%. So much so that when the screen was lit for the first time, many people did not believe that it was a thousand-yuan machine. Vivo places the front lens at the bottom of the screen by punching holes in the screen, and uses the "Super Black" technology to "hide" it. In addition, with the optimization on UI, this comprehensive screen not only has a strong practicality, but also has a high appearance.

It is undeniable that the pole full screen brings both appearance and functionality to the vivo Z5x. The less occluded screen, with a narrow border, brings more shocking visual effects; the hidden front lens can both take selfies and collect face data when the face is unlocked. In the process of use, this "hole-digging" design will not actually attract your attention. The lens that stays in the upper-left corner of the status bar exists silently most of the time. And vivo in the system also made its own optimization, will not affect the touch of the situation.

When it comes to adapting to third-party applications, Xiaobian has tried the mainstream applications commonly used by everyone at present, including Weibo, WeChat, QQ, Douyin, map and so on. Their adaptation is very good, even if they occasionally obscure part of the display content, but it will not affect the normal use of the software. From this point of view, vivo Z5x is doing a good job. It does not affect the user experience in order to highlight the design.

After talking about the front, let's take a look at the side. As a model of the vivo family, the Z5x can actually see a lot of genes inherited from the family. In addition to the basic power keys and volume keys, the vivo Z5x inherits the independent buttons of its voice assistant Jovi on the left. From here we can also see the priority of Jovi in the vivo system, after all, there are not many functions with physical buttons. As for the improvements that Jovi can bring to users' experience, I will not repeat them here, and you can refer to the evaluation of the whole machine.


The vivo on the back of the fuselage also put a lot of thought into it, and the arrangement and combination of the three cameras, the fingerprint recognition area and the Logo, became a problem. The vertical arrangement of three cameras is located in the upper left corner of the fuselage, and the lower flash is decorated with stripes, adding a bit of playfulness to the slightly serious back. Except for the fingerprint recognition area in the center and the Logo, below, there is nothing else on the back of the fuselage. The


Vivo Z5x uses a large 5000mAh battery, and long range is also one of its main functions. The result of large batteries must be an increase in the thickness of the fuselage, a physical rule that no one can change. However, the vivo still brings a very good feel to the Z5x through the backplane of the 3D curved surface. With the same round metal frame, it not only has the texture in the hand, but also can minimize the heavy feeling brought by the large battery. it is really killing two birds with one stone.

In addition, in terms of interface, the vivo Z5x still retains the 3.5mm headphone port, which is undoubtedly good news for those music-loving users. It is matched by the Micro USB interface and the hidden handset above it. These small places may seem inconspicuous, but from the user's experience point of view, the actual happiness is still very high.


In terms of design alone, there are a lot of bright spots on the vivo Z5x. Vivo in the price of 1398 yuan, for users to bring a lot of excellent design and configuration, pole comprehensive screen is one of them. In the same price range of products, vivo Z5x achieved the "people have nothing, people have my essence" standard. The essence is that vivo has strong technology accumulation and the ability to control the supply chain.

To evaluate the design of a mobile phone, we should not only look at the appearance, but also consider the price, positioning and other aspects comprehensively. Vivo, as a large domestic manufacturer, has innate advantages in these aspects. And vivo for its own product positioning, hardware integration, and cost control, is very accurate. This is the foundation and guarantee behind the birth of the Z5x phone, and of course it is also the basic principle for vivo to make products all the time.
