Review of the Vivo X80 Lite after using the device as my main mobile for the last week. It is a mobile that not all of you will be able to buy, or you will not like due to its exclusive contract with an operator, but that I liked and, above all, it maintains the philosophy of the brand.
Although they do not have as extensive a catalog as other companies, Vivo is establishing itself as an option in the market with few options, but well thought out and differentiated for the different user segments.
Thus, we have a Vivo V23 that, if you are looking for design, good materials, and a very powerful front camera, is for you. And, obviously, we also have the top range in our country until the X90 Pro arrives, a live X80 Pro that we really liked as a premium range.
Now we have gone down a couple of steps to do the analysis of the Vivo X80 Lite, a terminal that you will only be able to get in Spain with an operator (welcome to 2007), but that has some of the most interesting features.
And it is that it maintains the philosophy of the company’s terminals, so we have software with a lot of customization, a very powerful selfie section, a correct screen, and quite an elegant design. And then I will tell you about my experience with the Vivo X80 Lite during the last week.

It is a fairly balanced mobile that we can classify as a mid-range and, apart from other specifications, I think it shines for a design that attracts attention and that makes the mobile appear more expensive than it really is.
Mid-range materials, but with a great high-end touch
There are several aspects that Vivo takes great care of in its devices, but if I had to highlight one that cuts across all ranges, I think that would be the design.
Here we have very similar lines to what we saw on the V23 and other devices before it, like a flat back with a rectangular camera module and either loud colors or a distinctive pattern.
In the high range, they try other things, but the truth is that in the rest of the ranges… they remain quite faithful to that identity.
In the case of the X80 Lite, we have a camera module that is huge not so much because of the size of its camera sensors, but because of a design issue. And I like the finish on the back.
The color, officially, is Diamond Black, but I see it more bluish, and what is “diamond” about is the pattern of glitter that is generated depending on how the light hits it. The truth is that it seems to me quite elegant mobile and on the hand, it feels very good.
The sides are flat and both these and the back are made of plastic. The truth is that on the sides you can tell that it is plastic, but the back has a fairly premium finish and, honestly, I think it is a mobile that feels more expensive than it really is.
Fingerprints do not remain, the touch has an interesting texture and I already say that I like how it feels in the hand. However, I miss a silicone case because on some surfaces it has been slipping little by little.
It seems strange to me that the case does not come in the box, but what does come is the 44 W charger and a pleasant surprise: wired headphones.
Yes, I haven’t even opened them because I have my true wireless headphones (and because since I’ve already returned the phone, it seems like a pig to try the headphones that I’m not going to keep), but I think it’s a very good detail.
