Hello,
I've been having problems with the signal of vivo x80 pro since day 1. Sometimes (1-2 per day) although it shows i'm having 4 bars and 5g signal i can't call anyone, unless i restart the phone. Other times my friends complain that they don't hear me clearly (interruptions), although it shows i have perfect signal, until i restart my phone again... Then it all comes to normal.

Has anyone experience anything like this.
I'm in Greece and my model is v2145.

New issue - phone call with usb-c adapter and earphones: my dialog partner complains about hearing himself

Does anyone has the same issue when having a phone call while using a usb-c adapter and earphones? I used the usb-c adapter with several other phones and there was no issue like that. I do not have any echo issues, only my dialog partners. Furthermore, I would like to have the opportunity to reduce the volume further - my earphones (with usb-c adapter) make my ears explode.

I really appreciate your tips condisering the echo for my dialog partner and the volume issue.
The negative acoustic feedback loop is still existing using my cable earphones (w. usb-c adapter) - but: I found out, that muting oneself helps - although it is tiring to mute and unmute oneself during a call...

Hoping this issue will be solved with an upcoming update!
 
Copy-Paste from a different topic, but usefull here:

An update from my side.
Yesterday I had the first normal working day, so could compare the battery life a bit better (compared to the P30 Pro).
At the end of the working day I still had 65% battery left.
Had 3 phonecalls with a total of 20 min. Browsed the web for about 45min.
When I got home a watched YT for about 1h. and browsed the web for about 1h.
At the end, with 17h between charges, I had about 20% left.

No heating issues what so ever (never had).
The optimizing part stated above is done for about 15 apps, with about 10 apps locked in the taskmanager.

So he had 3:10h sot with 17h of total usage and left with 20%?
Not the worst but that's not good tbh.

The vivo has some idle drain specially on mobile data, hopefully the next update will fix it, might be in the end of August.

That's pretty good but you need to see if you can maintain it or is it just a rare occurrence.

As i had something similar as well.
I got X80 pro on July 15 and in the first week of owning it I was on holiday.
So camera was in intensive use, screen was almost always on max brightness and ambient temp were +30°C (beach all day long :) ). Average SOT back then was 5 hours which is pretty good considering just mentioned.

With my typical usage in the last few weeks after returning fm holidays (wifi at home, 4g elsewhere), the avg SOT per charge reported by Gsam is constantly increasing and currently already at 6hrs 20min.

Well that's great!
I barely could reach 5sot tbh, and on the hottest day the phone throttled like crazy which wasn't that shocking.

I've run into a bug/fault.
Connecting to my Audi Bluetooth for music, there are 2 problems that did work with my P30 Pro, but now don't.
1. Absolute volume: with the P30 Pro the volume of the device was always at max, couldn't change it. (as I would like). But now with the X80 Pro the volume buttons work. Thus the volume is somewhere at 20% and I have to manually put it at 100% to function normally in the car.
Any way to fix this?
2. Track and artist info. With the P30 Pro I got track info like artist, album and song playing. Now with the X80 Pro I get only the time of the track, nothin else.
Any way to fix this?

New trial update has just been released!

Same patch notes as previous one with the addition of Aug 2k22 security patch.

Android 13 beta application is still under review.

So far nothing has changed, selfie cam became a tad better.

Those of you who has the phone with active sim, you MIGHT see less drain.

Just bought an x80 Pro (v2185A) 12/256GB model, has yet to arrive. It's the CN version so would I most likely get the Origin OS version?

If so is there an Android 13 Preview coming out? Been eager to try it out but no idea if it will be available on there.

It's not that easy with the bootloader. You can brick a phone very quickly.
There is no reason to unlock it either. It brings no benefits.

Origin OS Update - Google Services issue - solution:

If your Gboard keyboard stopped working after installing the Origin OS update, do the following:

1) Settings
2) Accounts & Synchronization
3) scroll down to "Management/Control of Google Services"
4) deactivate it
5) wait 3s
6) activate it again
7) open Google Play Store (you may need to log in again)...
8) every google app works fine again

    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.
