Without any new NEX phone this year, the X50 Pro+ takes the throne this year as vivo’s premium flagship phone. Being a premium flagship, vivo made sure to equip the X50 Pro+ with the best possible rear camera setup: 50-megapixel f/1.6 GN1 main camera with OIS and Dual Pixel PDAF; 13-megapixel f/2.46 portrait camera with 2x optical zoom with PDAF; 8-megapixel f/3.0 periscope camera with 5x optical zoom with OIS and PDAF; and 8-megapixel f2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera.
With such a stacked camera setup, how does the X50 Pro+ fare against current premium flagship phones? Pretty good, according to DxOMark. The X50 Pro+ passed through DxOMark’s battery of tests, and scored 127—that’s a point below the P40 Pro and two points below the Mi 10 Ultra, which is the current DxOMark champ.
Breaking down the scores, the X50 Pro+ performed very well in photos, with DxOMark emphasizing how it can handle accurate exposure and a broad dynamic range in almost all lighting conditions including low-light. While its ultra-wide-angle performance is not as great, the X50 Pro+ excels in the telephoto range, with both its mid-tele and periscope cameras delivering well-detailed images.
The same goes for video: save for minor color cast and stabilization issues, the X50 Pro+ also performed very well in this department, with the added perk of being able to shoot 8K video.
