What’s inside the Box ?
The inbox elements of Vivo X21 are –

The fact i like about Vivo is that they are offering so much inside the box Content for Which the user have to pay a little extra from his pocket namely – a silicone case which would cost a few bucks extra .
Physical Overview of Vivo X21 –
At the Left there is nothing and at the Right we have the volume rockers and the power button .
At the bottom we have the Speaker grills coupled with Charging port and a 3.5 mm audio jack along with a sim card slot which is a dual sim and a SD card slot which means the user can use three for his things namely 2 sims and a micro SD card at the same time
At the front we have the 6.28 inches Super AMOLED display with the 12 Mega pixels front shooter and some basic sensors and a speaker grill and in the display we can see the Indisplay Fingerprint Scanner at the bottom .
At the back we have the Dual rear cameras 12 Mega pixels main camera and the 5 Mega pixels secondary Camera with LED flash ( not dual tone ) and beneath that there is a Vivo Branding and also we should not forget it’s a flagship device so boast a all glass body at the back .
How’s the Performance ?
Vivo X21 is a 40,000 INR segment device in which the most highlighting part is the Indisplay Fingerprint Scanner. I mean it’s really so accurate but it can’t beat the face unlock as the face unlock on Vivo X21 is way to faster than the previous Vivo Devices we have reviewed .
As Vivo X21 Boast 12 Mega pixels front camera and Dual rear cameras 12 Mega pixels main camera and the 5 Mega pixels secondary Camera which support AI Bokeh algorithm . Along with that the X21 also has 128 GB of internal storage from which the user gets around 110 GB ( approx ) and it supports OTG too.
The Vivo X21 is Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC which is a 64 bit processor and is clocked at 2.2 GHz which is coupled 6GB of RAM which does it’s work very well without a single glitch . It worked buttery smooth the multitasking even during gaming too the phone didn’t face any hiccups .
The best thing about Vivo X21 is the dual Sim and SD card support which is a miss in other flagship smartphones out there in the market in this Price segment .
Well we tried quite few games and it worked quite well . We did tried heavy games and it worked like a charm without a lag .
Asphalt Nitro , Modern Combat 5 , Hitman Sniper , Mekorama are few games which we tried on Vivo X21 .
What’s Powering it up ?
The Vivo X21 has a massive 3200 mAh non-removable battery which is another key highlight of this device and which also makes it fall in the category of a good device under 40,000 INR . At first use we charged the device to 100 percent then we checked the standby time it lasted for 5 days ( no kidding ) with WiFi on , no background application running ( recent applications ) , auto brightness and sometimes Data services enabled .
The Vivo X21 also lasted for 2 days of battery with minimal usage like – 4G data services on , normal web surfing with switching from one social media application to another , WiFi on , auto brightness on and yes with normal gaming too. It still had 20 percent of battery left after 2 days of usage .
How’s the camera ?
The cameras on Vivo X21 aren’t the highlight of this flagship device as the Indisplay Fingerprint Scanner steals the show . Whether we talk about the front or the back camera . It has a 12 Mega pixels camera front Camera and which is capable to record videos upto 4K I mean really has in this price segment no other smartphone manufacturers aren’t providing this feature . As talking about the cameras how we can forget the back cameras .
The Vivo X21 has Dual rear cameras 12 Mega pixels main camera and the 5 Mega pixels secondary Camera which support AI Bokeh algorithm and which various modes to play with and even the Pro mode works like a charm .
The camera does it’s best in the day light and the colors comes out to be great with both the front and the back cameras .
Is it Latest ?
The Vivo X21 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Vivo’s own new User interface – Funtouch OS 4.0 . Well that’s something really cool to find as other manufacturers in this price segment don’t give importance to the User interface but Vivo has done a great job in the UI segment .The UI is honestly speaking has got some really cool features and gestures are the thing which I liked the most and it also includes tones of customization including better RAM management .
Is it worth to Buy ?
The Vivo X21 is worth to money if you are a new technology lover as the Indisplay Fingerprint Scanner is the new piece of technology which is something new to look at and which steals the show also if you are a photography lover or always like to shoot record your special memories and also love to play in the manual mode in the camera and if you are a moderate user then Vivo X21 is the prefect companion for you . Also it’s providing bundle of things in one pack namely the inbox elements including the silicone case , screen protector and a Earphones too for which a individual would have to spend few extra bucks from there pocket .
It’s a great device to get as having a great Specifications sheet which have 128 GB of internal storage , 12+5 Mega pixels cameras and the best thing it has Dual Sim and Micro SD card slot which you can’t get in other smartphones out there .
