Search This thread
Hi, I am from Czech Republic and after last update of android 1.11.2022 the Google pay does not work. Do you someone have the same experience or do you know how to solve it. Thanks. Radek
Can you describe mire your "not working" situation? Can you open the app? Or it crashes? If you can open is it showing something like "Google Pay/Wallet is updating....you can still use your card...." ?

I'm not sure if anyone can help, after the last update on my CN version Vivo x80 Pro (12.0.15.3) I can no longer access fastboot. I installed the update I have the boot.img to root it (my bootloader is unlocked and phone was rooted) but it will not let me connect to fastboot. Its the phone not the driver because I tried it with another phone and it worked. Then I tried to see it I can downgrade back to the beginning firmware 12.0.10.5 and it didn't let me. I even tried upgrading it to a beta Android 13 that didn't work either. It keeps giving me this error. Does anyone have any idea on what I can do or why this is happening?? I installed the firmware normally, nothing new. Unless Vivo put something in this firmware that doesn't allow you to downgrade anymore. I haven't received any other update to see if it would let me update with the normal OTA ones but zips no longer work of any kind when before this update they used to.

I tried it but it tells me there is no downgradable system version.

Update: Not sure how this happened but after I had finally given up and multiple tries flashing different firmwares, I was restoring everything and tried one last time to flash the patched boot.img and this time it worked. No idea why or how this all happened and why it worked now and not before. The device still doesn't show up when I type fastboot devices. But when I went into bootloader I did it from the adb shell command instead of just adb. But none the less thank you for the help.

Radek I have the same problem and I know of another person who is also solving it. As an added bonus, my camera stopped working. My system updated to 13.1.10.13. I am also from CZ

Hi, I have a X80 Pro Global still running Funtouch A12 w30.
Yesterday night I killed all the background apps before sleeping, today I woke up with 30% less battery..I checked the battery details and what drained the battery were essentially 4 apps:
- google play services
- WAKELOCK
- Meta services
- system home screen

Everyday I notice Google Play Services draining battery..how can I fix it?

Do you have any solution? Will A13 fix that drain problem?

When I unlocked my screen with fingerprint the brightness is just at the lowest somehow but then the numbers and icons in the status bar stays at what brightness it's supposed to be on, I've tried disabling a lot of things including the ltpo smart switch and some animations settings.

Bluetooth paired devices keeps forgetting itself and needs pairing again everytime I have to use them.

Hi, I would like to know if anyone has the Chinese version of the x80 pro (Dimensity or Snapdragon), would like to know if there are any draw backs for using the Chinese version (if any)? If you select English language, is there random Chinese text anywhere throughout the phone?

I'm currently using the Chinese variant with Snapdragon 8G1 with no issues so far, although there is random Chinese text in some system apps like theme store.

Thanks, can you confirm if there's Chinese writing anywhere else in the phone software? Are you able to share screenshots? Is there any way to remove the Chinese writing?

I would like to share with you an unpleasant experience. beta version of A13 disabled my camera. The only thing that helped was a downgrade to A12. Today I was offered the official A13. After installing it, my camera stopped working again, so obviously a problem in the FW, which Vivo has reported for a month and yet the problematic FW apparently just refined and released officially ...

I have a similar issue with the camera, but it's more specific to the ultra wide, 2x and 5x lenses. I cannot switch to any of them when using any 3rd party apps such as FilmicPro, I have only the option to switch to the selfie camera and that's it, no more wide angle, or telephoto lens support. Lol

I can't launch the app at all, only the selfie camera works. Third party apps don't work at all

Hi guys. I just got the Vivo x90 pro plus. I was wondering, is there any safe to remove bloatware that i could use with the new model? I guess many are the same as x80 pro. I would like to start debloating. Thanks in advance.

    The phone would sometimes open the lock screen as if I touched it without actually touching it, waking the phone and canceling the deep sleep mode.

    There are some annoying lags when switching between apps at times, it's probably due to bad LTPO3 implantation.

    Battery is really the biggest issue here, it sometimes last 4.5hr before going to 25% battery, sometimes 5hr, it's very not consist despite that I use the phone the same way.
    Same bugs here. Overall, the UI feels like a rushed and unpolished effort. A good example is the duplicate power management options. If you go to an app's app info >> menu >> battery and choose "unrestricted", what you set there doesn't change the settings for that app in Settings >> Battery >> Background power consumption management. Which one applies?

    Overall, the implementation is whack. For Facebook, I have background power usage restricted in both menus, yet last night, it took place number 4 in background battery usage, responsible for 4.5% of the phone's battery drain overnight. On the other side of the spectrum, there are certain apps that the system closes way too aggressively: if you switch to another app for 30" and go back, it's put it to sleep and when it reopens, you're back to the home screen, not the specific page/tab you were on. Sometimes this is extremely annoying.

    There are apps that I don't use often, that would cause considerable background battery usage if left unchecked, so I have to keep them "restricted" (in both settings menus), then switch to "unrestricted" (in both places, which makes it doubly annoying) when I'm going to use them so they aren't killed by the system when I switch apps to quickly reply to a message, for example.

    Or my banking app: It uses a lot of background CPU if left unchecked, . so I'd like to restrict it, but that kills all notifications (for transactions, which are important). I've tried "Smart control" but it seems like it switches between all or nothing: sometimes the system lets it do as it pleases, and it uses a ton of battery in the background, other times it completely kills it and I don't receive notifications at all. Not sure what kind of algorithms "Smart control" uses, but they aren't very smart...

    Overall battery drain continues the same here. The max. I ever get, like you, is 4.5-5h SoT, and background battery drain is awful. Last night it dropped from 80% to 67% in flight mode and with battery saver on. Android system + Kernel amounted for 47% of all battery drain. 🤦‍♂️

    Another small thing: Am I the only one who finds it annoying that in notifications, all app icons are all the same color (system accent color), instead of the colour the app's icon would usually be?

    So far the X80 Pro is a great phone with big potential but buggy software and poor battery life, have to say i'm considering the ROG6 phone due to the battery mainly.

    For me, it's a FANTASTIC camera and a very mediocre phone. Great specs, yes, but as a daily driver, not up to the task. Bad battery life, a CPU that might shine in intensive applications but is very power-hungry, an unpolished UI that's laggy (defeating the purpose of such a powerful CPU), unpolished and feels dated, bugs-galore...

    Personally, I would not recommend this phone, especially at this price-point, and I won't be buying a Vivo again.

    Now that Samsung's confirmed that the S23 series will be shipping with SD globally, and Qualcomm has confirmed that all their chips will be manufactured by TSMC (and no longer by Samsung), I think I might try my luck the the S23 Ultra come February. I've been staying clear of Samsung for years because of the terrible Exynos chips, but with these news, and after having experienced Funtouch OS and what a truly unpolished OS looks like, I think I'll switch. Maybe their camera still won't beat the X80Pro's, but to me a phone needs to be the whole package, and this phone falls short in way too many aspects. Ah, I wish the Huawei ban would come to an end... 😭

    Another lesson learned: This is the last time I give reviews any credibility (neither Youtubers nor sites like GSM Arena, Tech Advisor, PC Mag, etc.). And if I do check out any reviews, I think it's important to focus on what they don't say, or what they only hint at subtly, and remember that reality is going to be a magnified version of that. "Average battery life" means "terrible battery life" and "a few slightly annoying bugs" means "a UI that makes you want to throw the phone out the window" 🤣

    Why run at 60hz when you can at 120hz? it's one of the best features of any flagship phone.
    Other than that, sounds good.

    I did a bit of test today, i put youtube on an 1440p video for an hour and half with poweramp playing in the background, lost 7% with wifi.

    That's not bad at all.

    have you tried?? i am getting a 9-10 hours SOT if i don't use the camera and 6-7 if i use the camera

    Unfortunately, it limits too many background services I rely on the get my notifications. It would be nice if it offered the option to choose which apps we want to remain active in this mode...

    First week with my X80 pro I'm still on vacation so cannot really compare battery life now to my typing usage.
    With ambient temperatures around 32-35°C, average 20-30 photos and 2 videos per day, poor wifi and 4g, I'm getting around 5 hrs SOT. Overnight drop is 3-4% with wifi and data off.
