It makes sense that they focus on SD as it's like 90+% of their market. Especially the group of hardcore gamers that run a gaming phone or flagship.
It's not cost effective to tailor their games/apps to that very small group (percentagewise) of mediatek or Exynos users.

SD can never obtain the optimisation like Apple because they create generic soc's and do not make a soc like Apple does where the platform and remaining hardware are carefully selected.
Also they move at a rapid pace so when a soc comes out they are working on the new one already. Smartphone makers, Google Android nor Qualcomm really has the time to perfect and finetune things accordingly. The timeframe between releases is just too small with the resources and people available.

That's the biggest issue and the biggest flaw of android, on top of that, the update policy differs from one company to the other, so it makes a big fragmentation in the android market.

Kirin is one of the best example of high optimized silicon, and even that had flaws.

I'll probably buy the ROG6 tomorrow mainly for my it's battery, speakers and the whole package, will let you know.

You will NOT be dissapointed ... It's the world greatest powerhouse even for non gamers when it comes to regular tasks like navigation, email, browsing and ofcourse multi media, nothing compares.
From a camera perspective it's not the best and you could miss certain comfort features like wireless charge and an IP rating.

I'm gonna keep the Vivo X80 Pro as my mobile camera when the D850 is not around, so it can work around the ROG6.

But I'll probably get it, I've been eyeing this 6000mah ever since ROG5.

Well, i caved in and bought the ROG6.
created a new post to share my XP but so far, just one day in, have to say that it makes me sad cause it makes the vivo looks so dated and poor, the only saving grace for the vivo phone is the unmatchable camera.

The battery life we all deserve but can never get with the X80 Pro.

This is done with the ROG6, and boy, it points out how awful the X80 Pro is outside the camera, screen and speakers.

I think use case matters? I tried this app before and this is mine on x80 pro on a normal use. Idk if the stats look good or bad. what do you think?

fun fact, you are getting 3.6%/h compared to 3.7%/h on the ROG6

I mean, almost 7h SOT feels ok to me and you still had 15% of battery left (so maybe another ~45 minutes SOT)

Yes, I do believe it comes down to the use case scenario and the place where i live is mostly windy and kinda cold (again as for the heating part, i still haven't experienced anything). I tried playing COD back to back the other day and it got warm, just warm to the touch. More to the image above the below one is the stats recorded till 15%.

Well it seems most of the people have battery life issues with the x80 pro.
I've been gaming hard and taxing the phone, the rog6 , and it just so much better.
Maybe I'll replace the battery on the x80 pro.
Have you received any new updates
Can you let me know how the update is holding up? Should i opt for this trail update or should i wait till they drop a stable one?

You should opt for it in my opinion.
The update hasn't improved much tbh, no difference at all.

No new updates as for today, i believe we'll get one this month.
Installed. I would say it connects to my wifi instantly rather than it used to have some kinda conflict, since i have multiple extenders. Before, i needed to long press the icon and wait a second for it to scan and then it connects (50% of the time). Now it seems to act normal. It connects seamlessly to the nearest one. Thanks to you, i would have never known. 🥲👍🏼

It should fix some of the random lag and network issues.

Check if you'll have less battery drain on standby when you're connected to mobile data

on the subject of battery life, just found this video:

x80 pro holds up pretty good compared to other flagships

    Are you using Origin OS? Could you post a screenshot of your settings if it wouldn't be too much a hassle? I have Funtouch OS 12 and there's no option to choose the refresh rate for each app and if you set it globally to 120 Hz, it drops to 60 Hz or less in most apps and even at 60 Hz the display feels slower and laggier than older phones.
    Of course. Here they are. Yes I have a Chinese model on Origin OS. The 60Hz isn't laggy, on mine at least.

    yeah, that's my experience as well
    really happy with phone, W10 variant
    120Hz works anywhere I want too (as you can see in youtube)
    seems like OriginOS is better optimized than Funtouch

    Have you notice poor graphic quality in android auto connected to a car? I have check today 3 phones (X80Pro, s21 ultra, zenfone 8) on 3 cars (ford Kuga, ford fiesta, vw arteon) and only on vivo i have graphic glitches (it looks like artifacts in JPG with very high compresion) and low resolution. I tried also developer settings in AA and force highest resolution but it doesnt help. I have also cleared all AA data in phone and nothing change. Can you check how it looks in your cars and compare to other (than x80 pro) phones?

    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.
