Vivo has been continuously producing amazing flagship smartphones. Their smartphones look well and offer decent configuration too. Recently, they launched their flagship smartphone i.e. Vivo Xplay 6. Not only they have maxed out the specs of the phone, they have ensured that the phone looks exceptionally well too.
The phone has an excellent design and we cannot complain much about it. The phone offers a premium look & feel and easily catches its users attention. Vivo has incorporated a curved display in the Xplay 6. The full metal unibody design topped with curved display makes the phone a sort of eye candy. The phone features with a physical home button upon which the fingerprint scanner is embedded. The volume and the power button are provided on the right edge of the phone. The external dimensions of the phone are 153.8 x 73.6 x 8.4 mm (6.06 x 2.90 x 0.33 in) and it weighs around 178 grams. The phone features with a 5.46 inch super AMOLED display that provides a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The UHD display houses approximately 538 ppi that makes the display exceptionally beautiful. The UHD display can be easily said as the best part of the phone, as the display is one of the best we have ever seen. The color saturation is fantastic and the contrast is well balanced. The display gets surprisingly bright giving the phone amazing sunlight legibility. The viewing angles of the phone are decent too. Overall the phone has an amazing body and one of the best displays ever.
The phone has a Quad-core (2x2.15 GHz Kryo & 2x1.6 GHz Kryo) core processor backed by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset. The processor lives up to its expectations and is able to deliver an amazing performance. One can easily multitask on the phone, and the phone won’t lag or stutter a bit. Heavy games and videos can be easily played on the phone as the Adreno 530 chipset ensure top-notch graphics performance. We did not face any problem playing high-end games like Need For Speed: No Limits, or Modern Combat 5: Blackout. The phone runs on Android platform and that too on Android v6.0.1 i.e. Marshmallow with the help of Funtouch OS 3.0. The phone comes with 128GB of internal storage, which again is impressive. The massive storage is complemented by a whopping 6GB of RAM that proves to be sufficient for running all kinds of apps. The phone supports dual SIM and also supports 4G/LTE networks.
Vivo has gone great lengths to provide amazing cameras in the phone. The phone features a Dual 12 MP, f/1.7 + 5 MP rear camera that is backed by Optical Image Stabilisation (4-axis), phase detection autofocus(PDAF) and dual-LED (dual tone) flash. The camera features include Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus. Shooting modes include Continuous Shooting and High Dynamic Range mode (HDR). FHD video recording can also be done by the camera. The phone also comes with a 16MP front camera. The camera is able to capture beautiful images, as the dual cameras work their magic. Images are incredibly cool when the lighting conditions are ideal, while in dim light conditions, the image quality drops a little. Overall, the rear camera works very well and we were impressed by it. The 16 MP front shooter provided in the front captures impressive selfies. The quality of video calls too was very impressive. Vivo has placed stereo speakers that get lough enough for a room and also comes with 3.5mm audio jack that is backed by Active noise cancellation with a dedicated mic.
