vivo X21 Review

Score: 67.5 / 100

Vivo X21 is a very solid Android phone launched a few years ago, packed with a very fast Octa-Core processing unit ticking at 2200 megahertz, a huge 6.3-inches screen, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and a 12 MP front-facing camera.

This phone feels much lighter than what you expect from a phone of this size. Even though this phone only has 6.08" long and 2.94" wide, it is able to fit a a 6.3" screen. This phone is thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.29". Regarding its body materials, the vivo X21 is mostly manufactured with Aluminum and Aluminum . Vivo onlymade this phone in color black.

This cellphone ships with a high performance 2.2 GHz Octa-Core processing unit, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SDM660 system chip and a big 6 GB of RAM. A good advantage of this cellphone is its 128 GB big internal storage and an SD extension slot, which allows you to store hundreds of apps without worrying about running out of space.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and a 12 MP front facing camera. the vivo X21's back facing camera has an aperture of F1.8 so it can capture beautiful photos even in low lighting environments. It also captures videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. This camera also counts with time lapse video.

Vivo designed this phone with a spectacular 6.3" screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2280 , providing this cellphone with a great graphical experience.

The vivo X21 offers WiFi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super quick connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G type) and fast 3G connectivity, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

The vivo X21 also comes with many useful features like Fingerprint Scanner, Face unlock, Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS Navigation and FM Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone comes with a big capacity 3200 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery, enough to provide this phone with an incredible battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins losing capacity, while with such a big battery you will probably replace this phone before it becomes a real problem.

No matter whether you want a phone mostly for internet broswing and social networks, you love taking photos, will use it as a work phone or need a cellphone for gaming, you will probably love this cellphone. This phone sells with Documentation, microUSB cable, Earphone, Protective Case, SIM Ejector, USB Power Adapter and Protective Film (applied) .
