February 12, 2022 by No Comments

Vivo has introduced a new series in its portfolio, called the Series T, aimed at Gen Z consumers. With this new line, the company aims to focus on performance at affordable prices. The first smartphone in the new series is the Vivo T1 5G, and it features a new, sleek design. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC and boasts of a 120Hz refresh rate display. So, should the Gen Z crowd choose the Vivo T1 5G over the competition? I got to spend some time with this smartphone, and here are my first impressions.

Vivo T1 5G price in India

The Vivo T1 5G price starts at Rs. 15,990 in India for the base variant which has 4GB of RAM. There are two more variants with 6GB and 8GB of RAM, and these are priced at Rs. 16,990 and Rs. 19,990 respectively. All three variants have 128GB of storage. Vivo offers two colour options, Rainbow Fantasy and Starlight Black. The company has announced a cashback offer at launch time for buyers who use certain banks.

Vivo T1 5G design, specifications, and features

The Vivo T1 5G has a new design with a flat back and flattened sides. Curved corners make it comfortable to hold. The Vivo T1 5G has a 6.58-inch full-HD+ IPS LCD display with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. There’s a dewdrop notch with a 16-megapixel camera at the top, a thick chin at the bottom, and slim bezels on either side of the screen. The Vivo T1 5G has is 8.25mm thick and weighs 187g.

The power and volume buttons are on the right of the plastic frame, while the left side is completely blank. Vivo has integrated the fingerprint scanner into the power button, and has positioned it quite well. My finger rested on the scanner naturally while holding the device. On the bottom, the Vivo T1 5G has a 3.5mm headphone jack, primary microphone, USB Type-C port, and loudspeaker. The top of the phone has the SIM tray and the secondary microphone.

You get a triple camera setup on the Vivo T1 5G. These’s a 50-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel depth camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. I have a Rainbow Fantasy unit of the Vivo T1 5G, and the rear panel has a sparkly, iridescent finish that shifts colours when light hits it.

Vivo has managed to pack in a 5,000mAh, battery which is commonly seen in this price range these days. There is support for 18W fast charging and the phone ships with a charger in the box. The Vivo T1 5G has a hybrid dual-SIM tray. It supports just two 5G bands, which seems like a potential downside compared to competing phones such as the Moto G71 5G (Review). The Vivo T1 5G also supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.1, dual-band Wi-Fi, and four satellite navigation systems.

Powering the Vivo T1 5G is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC, which I recently tested in the Moto G71 5G. Vivo has also implemented a virtual RAM feature which allows you to use part of the phone’s storage as additional RAM. This can range from 1GB to 4GB depending on the …….
