However, Vivo X80 Pro comes with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage which would cost you an additional $1 299.99 (£1 249) if you purchased the S22 Ultra model with a similar spec.
Vivo X80 Pro is available costs approximately $1430 in the United States and £1199 in the Kingdom (UK) which is slightly higher than the entry-level model of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra at a starting price of $1199.99 (£1149).
In addition to its RAM and storage, the Vivo X80 Pro comes with a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen that has a refresh rate of 120Hz, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, an IP68 rating for resistance to dust and water, and a 4,700mAh battery that charges at 80W (wired) and 50W (wireless). For the price, you certainly get a lot of benefits for your money.
Regarding the camera, it has a four-len model that has been co-developed by Zeiss, a well-known manufacturer of camera lenses. It comprises of a 50-megapixel primary sensor with an aperture of f/1.6, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with an aperture of f/2.2, and a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor with an aperture of f/1.9 and an 8-megapixel periscope sensor with an aperture of f/3.4 (with 5x optical zoom).
There is also a fingerprint sensor hidden behind the display, a front-facing camera with 32 megapixels, and the design is definitely topnotch.
In general, Vivo does not sell its phones in the United States, so you should not anticipate a debut there. On the other hand, you will find this comparison more useful if you live in Nigeria or any other country where the two companies operate.
You may be debating between purchasing the Vivo X80 Pro or the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, given that their prices are comparable. We will not be able to give you a definitive response to that question until we have had a chance to critically review the Vivo X80 Pro, but we can compare the specifications to help you decide better.
On this front, the Vivo has an edge in a few areas, including a chipset that is somewhat quicker than the UK version of the S22 Ultra (albeit it is the same one as US versions), as well as faster charging capabilities through both wired and wireless charging methods.
However, it does not have the S Pen feature included with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, its battery is a little bit smaller, and its camera cannot zoom as much as the camera on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which offers 3x and 10x optical zoom.
On paper, the two smartphones sound comparable in most other respects. Hence, the Vivo X80 Pro competes pretty well with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. If its cameras are up to the task, you really would not need a 10x magnification, and you can get by without a pen.
Therefore, Vivo X80 Pro is an option that is worth considering if you do not want to go for the entry-level model of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
However, it is sad that the typical consumer would give a lesser-known brand a second thought when presented with the option of purchasing a product from a well-established company such as Samsung.
Judging by the list of features, Vivo X80 Pro might have been one of the finest smartphones and camera mobiles from Vivo. But, many people are not yet aware of this.
