Vivo surprises us every now & then, last year they launched the Z1x & according to me it was the best budget mid-range phone which was just available online. And now they’re surprising us with their new series T, this is Vivo T1 5G, today we’ll be doing its unboxing and first impressions And I will be telling you everything about this yet another online-only phone.
This is a white box, generally, the boxes are colorful Looking at the case it seems like the sides are gonna be flat, and the case is good quality. There’s some documentation A USB Type-C cable, type A – type C charging cable, a sim card tool and finally the 18W charging brick Let me tell you guys that this phone is going to cost under Rs 20K & will cost around Rs 16-17 K.
The sides are flat, feels good in hand, I like the multicolor designs and it has a plastic back. The sim card tray is at the top there’s a 3.5mm jack & a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. There’s nothing on the left-hand side. It should weigh around 185gms It weighs 187.9gms. Not very heavy or light. Let’s put on the case The case quality is good and fits snuggly. Let’s drop it now & as I say it every time this is not a real drop test, I only do it for you guys. Because a lot of people in the comment section complain That this is not a real test, you test it on a wooden bench by dropping it just 3ft high.
So it’s not a real test. Let’s check the Simcard tray first and then start the phone. It has a hybrid sim card slot, and the base variant is 128GB, now let’s start the phone. It has a waterdrop notch, and the display is a 6.58’’ IPS LCD with 120Hz fast refresh rate, 240Hz TSR, so it is not an AMOLED screen, The viewing angles are okayish. And the screen-to-body ratio is 90.6%. The bezels and chin are average. It comes on Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 with 6 nm-based 5G processor.
So it is a capable processor It comes in 3 variants, 4GB+128GB, 6GB+128 & 8GB+128GB. It also has LPDDR4x RAM type and UFS 2.2 storage The antutu score really surprised me, it was around 412K. Which I think is really good considering it is a mid-range phone And you notice the difference while gaming, we played COD on very high settings and the experience was really smooth. We played BGMI on HD and high settings & we really enjoyed it.
The 240Hz TSR & the processor are really great. This is a fun fact that never really happens, the antutu score is more than what Vivo claimed, they claimed that it was 405K and we got 412K, this does not happen often It has 4GB virtual RAM. All the sensors are there, the side-mounted fingerprint works really fast, talking about the OS And the big thing that other brands are not implementing is it has FunTouchOS 12 out of the box which is based on Android 12 There are some pre-installed apps that you can uninstalled Let’s talk about the connectivity, this has 5G, but it only supports 2 bands, Dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.1 with dual-band WiFi.
Talking about multimedia, it has got a big IPS LCD screen which is good quality so the video viewing experience is going to be good The mono speakers are loud and good quality as well. And the 3.5mm jack is also there, we don’t see much of them nowadays so you can use wired earphones. The rest of the features like widevine L1 and camera 2API are also there with SAR value as well. There’s FM radio, no notification light & IP certification It weighs 187gms, and I really like that it has 5000mAh battery.
And with the 6nm processor, it can easily last up to 2 days or so It has 18W charging, 30W would’ve been better Generally the cameras of Vivo phones are good, the primary sensor is 50MP, the rest two sensors are 2MP+2MP, so no ultra-wide The photos of primary sensors come out really good, photos of the rest of the cameras are not even worth mentioning, There’s a 16MP camera in the waterdrop notch, I’ll show some samples on screen, they come out good under normal conditions So even though it is a budget phone the photos are good just of the primary and selfie sensor. It also has a super night mode, so even in low light you can click bright photos.
The back camera is capped at 1080p 60fps There is no 4K. so to sum it up the phone is not a camera-centric phone it is a performance-based phone So there were 2-3 things surprising about this phone, firstly the waterdrop notch should’ve been hole punch On the positive side the performance really surprised me, and even though it doesn’t have an AMOLED display it is really good The display and performance are the highlights.
And generally we don’t get Android 12 under Rs 20K but you get it in this phone And the design looks really good too The cons were the only 2 5G bands supporting, cameras were average and the fast charging should’ve been more as well I don’t know the price as I am unboxing the phone, but if the base variant comes around Rs 17-18K it would be a decent offer If you have any questions, drop them in the comment section also make sure to like & share the post .
