Vivo has announced its latest flagship smartphone lineup, the X60 Series I live X60, X60 Pro (Review), And X60 Pro +. Each smartphone has different specs, but all three are powered by Qualcomm’s flagship silicon power. The Pro + 5nm chipset features the Snapdragon 888, while the rest is powered by the new 7nm Snapdragon 870 chipset. You can expect very few smartphones to use the SD870 SoC this year, as well, it makes sense to see how it can outperform the SD865 and outperform the SD888, which is clearly more powerful. . For this, I use X60 Pro, OnePlus 8T and OnePlus 9. Priced at Rs 49,990, the Vivo X60 Pro cuts out its work in terms of competition. You have OnePlus9 (Review) Priced exactly the same price and powered by Snapdragon 888 chipset. The OnePlus 8T (Review) Starts at Rs 42,999 and comes with the Snapdragon 865 chipset. Let’s take a deeper understanding of these devices and their chipsets by comparing benchmarks and gaming.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 is an expanded version of the 865 from last year. It uses the same Cortex A77 cores that run the Cryo 585 Prime and Gold CPUs for performance and Cortex A55 cores with the Creo 585 Silver CPUs for efficiency. The main difference is the single 585 Prime CPU that can spin at 3.2GHz on the Snapdragon 870 compared to the 2.84GHz on the Snapdragon 870. The Snapdragon 888 is in the upper class because it packs in the new Cortex X1 Core a Cryo 680 Prime CPU watches at 2.84GHz. The rest are three Cryo 680 Gold CPUs in the Cortex A78 core, and four Cortex A55s with the Cryo 680 Silver CPU in the efficiency cores. For graphics, the Adreno 650 has both the 870 and 865 packs, while the 888 has the Adreno 660 as its GPU. It is clear that Snapdragon 888 has all the makings to come up and knowing how far this comparison lags behind the other two.
For a metric of how well the device is performing, benchmarks are usually the way to go. I used the GeekBench 5, Contact and 3Dmark to evaluate the smartphones on hand and it should paint a good picture about each of their processing capabilities.
The benchmark geekbench5 to get single-core and multi-core results and gives you an idea of how it works under CPU load. For the SD870-powered Vivo X60 Pro, the scores for both tests were 1,031 and 2,998, respectively. The SD888-powered OnePlus 9 had the best scores of 1,093 and 3,401, while the OnePlus 8T scored 900 and 3,189 with its SD865. From the results, we can see that all the phones have somewhat similar scores as they are at the forefront with the OnePlus 9 pack. Surprisingly the multi-core score on the X60 Pro’s Snapdragon 870 is lower than the OnePlus 8T’s Snapdragon 825. However, there is a difference in single-core performance. In terms of percentage, the X60 Pro is down 12 percent in multi-core usage compared to the Snapdragon 888-powered OnePlus 9, with single-core performance being the same for both devices.
The good thing about Infection is that its overall score takes into account the CPU, GPU, memory and UX performance of the phone. You may notice that the X60 Pro has a good overall score of 636,019, which is behind the OnePlus 9’s score of 702,736, the highest I’ve ever seen on an anthology. OnePlus 8T had the lowest score of the trio at 588,857. The X60 Pro’s higher score than the 8T comes from better GPU, CPU and memory performance. Compared to the OnePlus 9, the X60 Pro powered by the Snapdragon 870 has a 12 percent reduction in overall performance.
3DMark is always a good idea as far as GPU testing goes, so I implemented it on all three devices. The Vivo X60 Pro scored a total of 4,212 on the wildlife benchmark. The OnePlus 9 fitted with the SD888 is clear with a score of 5,789, while the OnePlus 8T is finally at 3,825. In terms of profits on the last generation OnePlus 8T, the X60 Pro is 10 percent ahead, while the OnePlus 9 is 34 percent ahead.
Although it is always clear that the OnePlus 9 is going to be ahead in all dimensions, it should be noted that the CPU performance is the same on all three devices. Let’s see how good the graphics-prowess is on all three devices through the gaming test.
Implementing a Call of Duty mobile within 30 minutes on all three phones should give us a rough idea of how the devices work in terms of battery drop and the temperature obtained. The X60 Pro is a bit negative here because it has a 4,200mAh battery, compared to the rest of the 4,500mAh.
Call of Duty Mobile
For this test, I run all devices at Very High Graphics Quality (GQ) and Max Frame Rate (FR) with depth of field, bloom, real time shadows, ragdoll effect and anti-aliasing turned on. Clearly the Extreme FR option is also available for OnePlus phones, but it seems that the update has not reached the Vivo X60 Pro. However, playing the game for 30 minutes increased the battery capacity of the X60 Pro by 16 percent and the temperature by 13 degrees. The The OnePlus 9 drained 12 percent of the battery, while the temperature rose by 11 degrees. For the OnePlus 8T, the battery is reduced by 15 percent, while the phone is heated up to 14 degrees.
The Vivo X60 Pro and its Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset seem to be working well, but the gains are not as significant as the OnePlus 8T’s Snapdragon 825. Sure, if you want the best graphics capabilities, the Snapdragon 888-powered OnePlus 9 is a worthwhile choice. However, do not expect much improvement in processing workload from Snapdragon 870 (X60 Pro) to Snapdragon 888 (OnePlus 9). These three phones are now one of the fastest devices you can find in the Android world.
