Vivo’s new T-series smartphones are directly aimed at Gen Z. Such shoppers, according to Vivo, seek well-designed items with good features for the price. The Vivo T1 5G is the first smartphone in this new series that offers a sleek new style. It also has a massive 64-megapixel triple camera setup, a 90Hz refresh rate display, and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778 5G chipset.
So, is the Vivo T1 5G the right phone for you? Let’s take a quick look at our first impressions.
First, let’s look at the box. The phone arrives with a charger and a decent back case in a package. This ensures you won’t have to shell out extra cash for a phone case. The Vivo T15G is available in two colors: Turbo Black and Turbo Cyan.
It’s a fairly standard unboxing experience when you first open the Vivo T1 5G. There’s a cardboard box with the silicone casing and a user guide. The charging brick, charging cord, and SIM ejector tool are all located beneath the device.
Design and Build
The Vivo T1 5G comes with a 6.58-inch full-HD+ IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone weighs 187g and is 8.25mm thick. It also has a dewdrop notch on top with a 16-megapixel camera, a hefty chin on the bottom, and narrow bezels on both sides of the screen. Interestingly, the camera island on the phone is reminiscent of the triple camera design on the Huawei P50.
The Vivo T1 5G has a plastic body, but it looks attractive with a gleaming black finish. The phone’s smooth matte back texture and curved corners make it easy to handle.
Under the hood
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778 5G, Qualcomm’s mid-range chipset with integrated 5G and designed for mobile gaming, powers the Vivo T1 5G. Vivo has also included a virtual RAM function that allows you to use a portion of the phone’s storage as extra RAM. Depending on the model, this can range from 1GB to 4GB.
The Vivo T1 5G should be able to play Call of Duty Mobile or Genshin Impact in high settings. However, we will still have to park this one as we fully test the phone in our full review.
So far, the phone feels smooth and fluid as I navigate the UI and switch between apps. I appreciate how FunTouch OS 12 is implemented here because it appears more like the stock Android UI. It’s a lot easier to use and much cleaner.
On the back, the phone has a triple camera configuration with a 64-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. A 16-megapixel front camera is available for selfies.
In our initial shots, the 64-megapixel primary camera takes photos in daylight with ease. It captures fine details and has a decent dynamic range. We also tried taking shots at night, and we are pleased with the photos it produced. The f/1.79 aperture delivers plenty of details and, combined with its Super Night Mode feature, denoises photos while adding more light to nighttime shots.
Here are some shots taken by the Vivo T1 5G:
Vivo attempted to improve performance by including a high-refresh-rate display, additional cameras, and a large battery. As a result, the Vivo T1 5G is an all-around mid-range smartphone designed for Gen Z and gamers.
However, the Vivo T1 may have been superior in some areas if it had opted for a punch-hole display and a 120hz refresh rate. So, should you go with the Vivo T1 5G or one of the other alternatives? We’ll get to that in our full review, which will be out soon.
