  • Vivo X100 Pro Telephoto Lens – What Is So Special About It?

    The periscope telephoto has slightly distinct behavioral patterns, including some variance between Photo and Night modes and a more constant preference for darker exposures when Dim light is switched off.

    Both Photo mode with Dim light enabled and Night mode record balanced exposures with managed highlight clipping and good development in the dark areas; there’s little to distinguish between the two modes in this regard.

    The primary camera is undoubtedly great, powered by Sony’s renowned 1-inch IMX989 sensor, which can capture more light than smaller sensors, allowing the phone to perform better in low-light circumstances.

    The ultrawide also impresses, matching the primary camera’s pixel count and sporting a reasonably wide f/2.0 aperture.

  • Called the photographer’s phone, in terms of portrait photography, the X100 Pro is most likely the best smartphone available today. The X100 Pro includes a 50-megapixel Periscope zoom lens and Zeiss’ APO “floating design” with new Vario-Apo-Sonnar elements.

    The lens may tilt forward and backward to focus on subjects at different distances.

    Galaxy S24 Ultra Vs Vivo X100 Pro

    By contrast, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 21 percent longer battery life, and the rear camera has a 5x optical zoom.

    The Vivo X100 Pro has established this generation’s high standard for smartphone photography. The only question is whether Samsung can match Vivo’s remarkable offering, particularly its telephoto lenses.

    Expected Price And Final Verdict

    The Vivo X100 Pro is expected to be launched in the United States soon. Vivo United States has not announced the official release date.

  • Still, according to multiple sources, the expected starting price for 12 GB + 256GB is $685, while the 16GB + 256GB is $730.
