Vivo T2 Pro Review: The Perfect Smartphone for Tech Enthusiasts

Vivo T2 Pro Review

Vivo T2 Pro Review: Vivo has adopted a distinctive strategy in the cutthroat Indian smartphone industry. The business has surpassed industry titans like Xiaomi and OPPO, coming in second place only to Samsung. The ‘Series T’ is becoming increasingly popular in the sub-Rs. 30,000 category, and Vivo has an attractive lineup of series.

Introducing the Vivo T2 Pro 5G, a handset that offers the recognizable ‘V’ series design characteristics at a more reasonable pricing. It costs Rs 23,999 and comes with a 64-megapixel OIS camera, a curved high-refresh-rate OLED display, and is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 SoC. The Vivo T2 Pro is up against competitors like the Lava Agni 2, Realme 11 Pro, Moto Edge 40 Neo, and others in this group. How does it compare to the competitors, then? To find out, let’s read our review.

Display and Design

The Vivo T2 Pro attracts attention with its Dune Gold colorway and marble-like surface by bringing the elegant design language of the Vivo V27 series to a more affordable price range. The phone’s attractiveness is yet just as powerful in Moon Black.

The phone has a luxury look and feel to its design. It boasts front and rear glass that are subtly curved and effortlessly meld into a glossy plastic frame. The device’s appearance has a hint of glitter thanks to the rear panel’s glossy AG Glass construction.

Despite its substantial size, the phone feels lightweight due to its low weight of just under 175 grams and thin thickness of 7.4mm. The TPU case that is included in the box helps to some extent to offset its tendency to slide about in the hand. A dedicated camera island on the back houses a dual-camera arrangement with vertically oriented lenses, along with an LED ring flash. The lower portion of the rear panel is decorated with the Vivo logo.

The layout of the buttons is standard, with the power button and volume rockers on the right edge and no buttons on the left side. The device’s primary speaker, USB Type-C connector, and SIM card slot are all located at the bottom, while a second microphone is placed at the top. Although the Vivo T2 Pro lacks a 3.5mm audio jack, it has an IP52 rating.

Vivo T2 Pro Display

The handset, which marks Vivo’s entry into the sub-Rs 25,000 market, has a sizable curved AMOLED display. A smooth 120Hz refresh rate and Full HD+ quality are provided by the 6.78-inch display. The curved form gives it a more expensive feel without sacrificing utility in daily life. The aesthetics of the screen are improved with thin bezels.

Even in the default display color mode, the Vivo T2 Pro’s display performs admirably, with superb viewing angles and vivid colors. Although the screen’s maximum brightness is unofficially unreported, it is sufficient for outdoor use. Even though the display has HDR10+ certification, some streaming services like Netflix might not be able to fully take advantage of this capability.

While the phone works well for multimedia consumption, the audio quality is diminished by a single bottom-firing speaker. Furthermore, it takes longer to acclimate to the low positioning of the in-display fingerprint scanner.

Software and Performance

The most recent Funtouch OS 13, which is based on Android 13, is preinstalled on the Vivo T2 Pro right out of the box. In accordance with industry standards, the business pledges to provide two upgrades to Android in the future and up to three years of security updates. The pre-installed third-party apps in Funtouch OS include DailyHunt, Hot Apps, Hot Games, Candy Crush, Tile Master, SonyLiv, and more. This is typical of many custom skins. Thankfully, users can remove these programs if they are no longer required.

Funtouch OS 13 places a high value on personalization, enabling users to make the operating system their own. Adjusting charging options, speed, animation effects, and lock screen to home screen transitions are all included in this. Additionally, the OS harmonizes system icons and interface colors with the device’s wallpaper to create a visually pleasing experience that is fully compatible with Android 13.

The ‘Material You’ theme isn’t completely supported by the OS, which is something that will likely change in the future Funtouch OS 14, which will launch on the T2 Pro early in 2019.

Performance-wise, the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 SoC, which was previously found in the iQOO Z7 Pro and Vivo V27, powers the Vivo T2 Pro. Benchmark results show that the Dimensity 7200 beats the Snapdragon 778G+, scoring 1,206 in single-core and 2,710 in multi-core CPU tests on Geekbench 6. Additionally, on Antutu V10, it received a decent score of 714,907 points. These benchmark results are accurate because the phone easily manages both gaming and daily work.

The gadget scored 3,518 points in Vulkan and 3,427 points in OpenCL for graphics. The phone handled graphically demanding games like Call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9 Legends, even on the maximum graphics settings, demonstrating its outstanding gaming capabilities. Even though the gadget did somewhat warm up over prolonged gaming sessions, there was no serious problem.

Battery and Camera

On the back of the Vivo T2 Pro, there is a dual camera configuration with a 64MP ISOCELL GW3 primary sensor and a 2MP macro camera. There is a 16MP front-facing camera for taking pictures and making video calls.

Vivo T2 Pro Camera

Although the primary camera tends to create slightly oversaturated colors, which is a trait frequently found in iQOO phones at launch, it nonetheless excels in well-lit environments with fine details and contrast. It excels at taking photographs of people while preserving the natural tones of their skin and providing accurate edge recognition and subject separation. Even with all filters disabled, there is some minor beautifying taking place in the background.

The camera performs brilliantly in low-light situations, handling highlights and shadows with ease. Even while photos that are really black might have a little noise, it is still within acceptable bounds for a sensor of this caliber.

Although the 2MP macro sensor delivers respectable pictures, it can be difficult to focus precisely, especially if you have trembling hands. Notably, the absence of an ultrawide-angle lens is a notable omission, so we hope Vivo will think about adding one in the future.

In terms of battery life, the Vivo T2 Pro has a 4,600mAh battery that can easily last an entire day with moderate to light usage. The phone regularly offered about 6.5 hours of screen-on time during the course of our study. Vivo has made adjustments to enhance battery life despite its limited capacity. Using the supplied 66W fast charger, the smartphone enables fast charging and can be fully charged from zero in about an hour.

Vivo T2 and Vivo T2 Pro

Conclusion

The Vivo T2 Pro, which costs Rs 23,999, offers a seductive option because to its striking luxury appearance and gorgeous display. Thanks to its powerful CPU, ample RAM, and storage, it performs admirably. Both in standard and portrait settings, the camera system produces respectable images, but the lack of an ultra-wide angle lens is a glaring flaw.

There is still room for software improvements, though. The single bottom-firing speaker, the absence of HDR compatibility on streaming services, the restricted adaptability of the back camera, and other elements might affect the overall experience.

While products like the Google Pixel 6a and Nothing Phone (1) stand out in some areas, the Vivo T2 Pro is still a desirable option all around for people looking for a dependable smartphone in the sub-Rs 25,000 price bracket.
