Qualcomm Snapdragon processors have always been the mainstream choice for Android flagships. But times have changed, and MediaTek’s strength has gradually increased. The latest generation processor Dimensity 9300 is no less powerful than Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This also means that Qualcomm is no longer the only player in the high-end flagship field, and there will be more in the future. More flagships will choose to be equipped with MediaTek.
The currently released mobile phone equipped with Dimensity 9300 is the vivo X100 series, and its strength is as strong as expected. As the much-anticipated “Dragon-Slaying Warriors” two brothers, they are both top level in their respective positions. And how should we choose between these two TOP-level mobile phones?
In terms of design, vivo X100 and vivo X100 Pro are very similar but slightly different. The X100 uses a “moon ring cloud step”, while the X100 Pro uses a “sun ring cloud step”.
As you can see, the ingenuity of the asymmetric design of the X100 is shaped like a crescent moon, which is made of stainless steel through one-piece cutting. It is also equipped with 2.5D gem-textured lenses and luxury-grade sun pattern, star track micro-nano lithography and other processes. .
Between the floating light and shadow, the crescent moon is particularly clear. The ingenuity of the design of the X100 Pro is that the sun is rising, and it is visually harmonious while still having enough layering. This time, vivo’s design of the two brothers is “evenly affected by rain and dew”, and they are both very beautiful.
In terms of performance, the specifications of the two brothers are the same, and both are equipped with the “MediaTek Dimensity 9300+UFS4.0+LPDDR5X” performance iron triangle combination.
We also conducted a benchmark test on the vivo X100 (at room temperature of around 25 degrees Celsius). We can see that the vivo X100 scored as high as 223W in the AnTuTu benchmark test! In the Geekbunch 6 test, the vivo X100 scored 2252 points in single-core and 7639 points in multi-core, which is currently the first-tier performance.
In terms of imaging, this is the biggest difference between vivo X100 and X100 Pro.The main camera of the X100 uses a 50-megapixel 1/1.49-inch outsole main camera IMX920 + 50-megapixel JN1 ultra-wide-angle + 64-megapixel OV64B telephoto, supporting 3x optical zoom.Supports up to 100x Zeiss ultra-light zoom. It can be seen that this configuration is very capable in a flagship. Coupled with the blessing of vivo’s self-developed imaging chip, every shot will be a blockbuster.
Unfortunately, although the imaging capabilities of the X100 are already the best in its class, the imaging capabilities of the X100 Pro are even more terrifying, and may be the best imaging flagship you can buy currently.
In terms of configuration, vivo X100 Pro adopts a “three-camera and five-focal-range” imaging solution, consisting of a 50-megapixel IMX989 one-inch main camera, a 50-megapixel OV64B telephoto lens, and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, supporting 4.3x optical Zoom.
As you can see, both the X100 and X100 Pro use OV64B as their telephoto lens, but in order to ensure image quality, the X100 Pro makes redundancy with the 64-megapixel OV64B, making its actual image 50-megapixel.This ensures a larger lens image field and also provides more room for anti-shake compensation.
Of course, in order to ensure its image strength, vivo X100 Pro has made sacrifices in terms of body. Depending on the color, its weight reaches 225g and 221g (sunset orange), and its thickness reaches 8.91mm and 9.05mm (sunset orange).
For comparison, the weight of the X100 is 206g and 202g (Sunset Orange), and the thickness is 8.49mm and 8.74mm (Sunset Orange). In terms of daily holding experience, vivo X100 is even better.
Finally, in terms of price, the lowest configuration version of vivo X100 is 12GB+256GB, and the highest configuration version is 16GB+1TB (LPDDR5T version).
The prices are 3999 yuan and 5099 yuan respectively; the lowest configuration version of X100 Pro is 12GB+256GB, and the highest configuration version is 16GB+1TB, priced at 5999 yuan. It can be seen that the price difference between the two mobile phones is basically around 1,000 yuan.
vivo X100 and vivo X100 Pro are two rare and excellent flagships at present, and their comprehensive strength is the strongest in their class. As “dragon-slaying warriors”, the price difference between them is about 1,000 yuan.
If you are a lover of moving images, the vivo X100 Pro is a close-up choice. It is currently the best imaging flagship. If you don’t value imaging capabilities and focus more on daily experience, the vivo X100 is also highly recommended. of a mobile phone.
