This is just the right size for a flagship IMO.
Only the Huawei P40 Pro/Pro + and this Vivo are in that bracket.
But the Huawei has no Google and the X50 Pro + isn't available officially outside of China and lacks Band 20 making it poor indoors on all the UK networks. The missing wireless charging just cements this phone as a no from me.
I just wish the US would leave Huawei alone and let us buy the best camera phones there are, if they want to stop them selling inside the US then fine, but why do I have to be punished?

When it comes to camera, Mi 10 Ultra beats out X50 Pro+ in almost every single instance. X50P+ has a very Samsung-like processing which looks fine in a smaller size but terrible as you start zooming in. Mi10U's sharpening is far smaller in radius yet lacks blurriness that X50P+ seems to suffer from, and at night it captures more colours in the sky (though admittedly it's slightly oversaturated) while keeping the noise at bay, something that this Vivo's newest flagship failed to achieve no matter which shooting modes are used. I prefer the less punchy colours from Mi10U during the day as well.
Vivo still did a really good job with the image quality, don't get me wrong. But it's still not on the same ground as Google, Huawei, Apple, or even Sony IMO.

Hands down the best looking phone of 2020

YUKI93, 03 Oct 2020"Since the sensor uses a Tetracell (Quad-Bayer) color ... moreGSMArena is wrong for saying that 50MP shots from this phone are upscaled from 12.5MP ones - they do look like a regular Quad Bayer remosaicked full resolution shots. The difference becomes very obvious if you compare the 5th photo from the regular mode and the 2nd one from the full res mode samples, there you should be able to see how much more details the latter resolves than the former even though they are distorted.

"Since the sensor uses a Tetracell (Quad-Bayer) color filter, the high-res images are upscaled versions of their 12.5MP native output."

Oh brilliant, it's the same as what Xiaomi did with the Mi 10 Ultra. I don't think I would capture a RAW photo in full resolution mode on either phone, let's put it that way. But that said, in Quad Bayer pixel-binned mode, I actually prefer the vivo's image processing over the Xiaomi's. I can definitely see the vivo produced a much more vibrant colour and much less oversharpening effect than the Xiaomi. I cannot even agree that the Xiaomi produced better detail, especially when looking at all those trees and grasses.

If I'm going to only use the stock camera app, I'd take the vivo easily. Makes me wonder how both phones perform with a GCam port.

Ak, 02 Oct 2020Why Chinese companies like xiaomi and vivo don't launc... moreI think it's pricing issues. There are sufficient numbers of Chinese consumers that will spend more on high end phones and it's their home market. Will there be sufficient demand from regions like Europe if they release phones that will cost around €1,000? Personally think that most people will be reluctant to pay so much for brands like Xiaomi and Vivo (at least in regions like Europe) so it may not be worth the extra cost of an international release in many markets

Ooooh i love the shootout!
Thats the only real way to comparatively see the camera quality... try adding that kind of testing more often.

Shame no jack. The camera is so good, its not super sharp like in huawei, but the grass that many brands destroy looks great, also hi res shots. Sharp edge to edge on superwide, great optics and processing, worth the price.
