The Vivo T1 5G Is A New Affordable Alternative With A Lot Of Advantages

Review of the Vivo T1 5G This is a brand-new series that will compete in the crowded mid-budget segment (Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000). Is it, however, powerful enough to compete with rivals? Here’s what we had to say.

The Vivo T1 is the first in a new series aimed at the extremely competitive sub-Rs 20,000 price range. The Vivo ‘T’ series is aimed towards a younger demographic, perhaps with a particular emphasis on those searching for their first gaming device. It includes a 120 Hz refresh rate on the display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 CPU that is also 5G-ready, according to Vivo. Is it, however, enough to make this a worthwhile purchase? Here’s what we had to say about it.

What’s excellent about the Vivo T1 5G?

Although the Vivo T1 has a plastic body, the overall finish on the rear is extremely beautiful and largely smudge-free. My phone is in the ‘Starlight Rainbow’ colour, which is a fancy way of stating it’s blue. Of course, depending on the light, the colour tones shift. In 2022, this ‘color-changing’ blue appears to be the most popular phone colour.

The full HD+ display on the phone is more than suitable for surfing and gaming. It performed admirably in intense sunshine, as I witnessed on two occasions. On the phone, Vivo allows users to choose between 60 Hz, 90 Hz, and 120 Hz refresh rates. Vivo’s ‘Smart Refresh’ feature is also enabled by default. At least among the phones I’ve reviewed, not many phones in this price range offer these options in addition to the ‘Smart Refresh.’

The refresh rate is determined by the Smart Refresh based on the usage scenario and power consumption. This is an excellent feature. For simple operations like Facebook scrolling or WhatsApp texting, 120 Hz is unnecessary.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 CPU powers the Vivo T1. For this review, I have the 8GB RAM version. All models come with 128GB of storage, which is a remarkable deal given the low starting price. The phone also allows users to increase the RAM on their handsets, which has become a popular feature on smartphones. I can add another 4GB of storage to this phone to make it have 12GB of RAM. This is a dual-SIM phone featuring a hybrid microSD card and second SIM card slot. Up to 1TB of extendable storage is available.

During my review period, the phone ran smoothly and without issues. On this, I played Genshin Impact and was blown away by the performance. I expected a lot of stutters, but the phone handled the game well overall, with no overheating or other concerns. The images were not always perfect, and the screen reaction was not always as quick as I would have liked. However, in this price range, I believe it performs admirably. The tablet should be more than enough for customers who rely on it for daily browsing and entertainment.

A 50MP main camera, a 2MP secondary camera, and a 2MP macro camera are included in the Vivo T1’s camera configuration. Some may find the lack of an ultra-wide-angle camera to be a disappointment, but I didn’t mind. When shooting in bright light outdoors or indoors with the Night mode turned on, the camera performs admirably. It does a decent job of preserving details, and the phone produces some nice portraits t00. The selfies have nice quality as well, and I found that with the beauty setting switched off, they were more suited to my tastes.

The Vivo T1 also comes with a 5000 mAh battery, which should easily last most users a day. However, the 18W charging is a letdown when compared to some of the other phones in the market, which offer 33W or faster charging. It takes more than an hour to fully charge the phone.

What’s not so great about the Vivo T1?

While it’s great to see Vivo include Android 12 on the phone, FunTouch OS 12 can be a bit clumsy at times. For one thing, I observed that Vivo’s in-built browser was sending me notifications for odd news stories. It took a few tries for me to figure out how to change these from the drop-down menu. Once again, several of the pre-installed programmes are unnecessary, and a means to remove ‘Hot Apps, Hot Games’ is required.

The camera’s performance had colour discrepancies, especially with pinks and reds. The lighter pink flowers in the photographs are too washed out, and the results are too crisp even with the brighter red petals. I found the same colour issues when photographing in Night mode. The Buddha statue, in particular, appears to be quite yellow, which it is not. Regardless of the lighting, the macro mode remains completely worthless. Whatever the subject, it simply cannot handle colours or details.

The verdict on the Vivo T1

With a starting price of Rs 15,990, the Vivo T1 is a compelling offer. Plus, the 6GB RAM version is only Rs 1000 more expensive than the base model, thus this is a really well-priced device. It will go up against the Realme 9 Pro (which starts at Rs 17,990) which has the same CPU as the T1. The Redmi Note 11S will be another competitor (starting at Rs 15,499).

The Vivo T1 has some redeeming qualities. The display and performance are excellent, the camera is decent, and the battery capacity is sufficient. The phone can handle some resource-intensive games, but if you really push it, you can see the phone struggle. But, again, this is a Rs 20,000 product, so expecting a faultless performance would be unrealistic.
