The recent trend is partnership with renowned camera companies it seems. The recently launched OnePlus 9 Pro has partnered with Hasselblad. Vivo has come up with Zeiss optics.Well if you remember Nokia had once come up with Zeiss lens and the result was awesome. So rest assured the Vivo X60 Pro + and X60 Pro will be hell of cameras.
Last year VivoX50 Pro had launched with the first gimbal technology in mobile cameras which in short ensures perfect stabilisation. The Vivo X60 Pro and the X60 Pro + both continue to have the gimbal cameras but with a slight difference between them.Moreover the phones are not only about cameras and in terms of specs Vivo has packed quite good features. Let’s have a look at the side by side comparison between the Vivo X60 Pro and the X60 Pro +.

The Vivo X60 Pro + looks similar to the Vivo X60 Pro from the front but when you turn it around you see the difference. Well at first you may confuse it with the OppoFindX2 Pro because of the Vegan leather back and yes the same orange colour.
The Vivo X60 Pro has a more conventional back with shiny premium finish.
The Vivo X60 Pro + has the best SoC for Android at this moment i.e the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 with blazing fast speed. The X60 Pro is not far behind with the recently launched Snapdragon 870 SoC but it is a fact that the 888 is better. To remind you both are 5G ready.
As you might have noticed the main camera of the X60 Pro + is a 50MP sensor while the X60 Pro sports a primary 48MP sensor. The gimbal technology is incorporated in the primary sensor of the Vivo X60 Pro while the ultra wide lens of the X60 Pro + houses the gimbal.
The ultrawide sensor of the Pro + is of 48MP while the X60 Pro has a 13MP shooter. The telephoto lens for portraits is of 13MP in the Vivo X60 Pro while the Pro + has a 32MP telephoto lens.Moreover the X60 Pro + also has a 8MP periscope telephoto lens for 5x optical and upto 60x digital zoom.
Both the phones are powered with Zeiss optics but the X60 Pro + has additional Zeiss T* lens coating.
Both have same 4200mAH battery but the Vivo X60 Pro + has a faster charging speed of 55W to that of 33W in the Pro model.
The 12/256GB model of the Vivo X60 Pro costs ₹49990 while the same storage variant of the Vivo X60 Pro + costs ₹69990.
As is evident the cameras are the highlighting features of both the phones.Zeiss optics further enhance the performance and produce sharper images with more contrast.The telephoto lenses ensure excellent portraits and good night time images.A new feature i.e Night time Panorama has also been added.The gimbal stabilisation is like icing on the cake enhancing the whole camera module.
The displays with curved edges and Infinity O type look,both Samsung panels, are very good.Amoled display with peak brightness of 1300nits,120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate automatically makes the display top notch.
The Snapdragon 888 of the Vivo X60 Pro+ is the fastest chipset available at this moment.The Snapdragon 870 of the Vivo X60 pro is also very very capable.
So overall the deal seems quite recommendable but I have certain issues though it depends on your taste.First I feel that the phones should have been water resistant.Secondly I have problem with the pricing.The Vivo X60 Pro+ costs 69990INR.To my knowledge Vivo has not yet acquired that big a name(barring China maybe) to be priced at such a high price.For the same you get a Samsung flagship or even an IPhone.Lastly Funtouch OS inspite of the upgrades has not reached that height of performance and sadly enough bloatware remains.
Anyways what do you think of the Vivo X60 Pro+ and X60 Pro.Please let me know in comments.
