Samsung has been resting on years of delivering smaller updates for its customers in India. So, a new player (in the foldable market) like Vivo literally needs to reinvent the wheel to get a premium smartphone buyer's attention. After using the phone for several weeks, I can conclude that Vivo has not exactly reinvented the wheel with its X Fold 3 Pro. But it does take things to the next level, offering plenty of value and features compared to the competition. As feature-packed as it may seem, it's not perfect. Read on to find out why.

Vivo's V29 Pro, which was launched last year in India, was a pretty good smartphone on paper and in real-world use as well. Its successor, the new Vivo V30 Pro, also has a few new tricks up its sleeves with some interesting Zeiss-branded cameras. The trio of 50-megapixel cameras claim to offer some interesting portrait photography features called ‘Zeiss Style Bokehs' that aim to mimic high-end Zeiss camera lenses. The brand has also stressed the inclusion of Zeiss-branded cameras, which, for the very first time, are available on a V series smartphone. But all these fancy camera features come with an above-average mid-premium price tag. After thoroughly testing out this phone, let's find out if it's worthy of its price tag and how well it stacks up against the competition.

Vivo's real success with its premium X series of smartphones took off with the X70 Pro+, in 2021. Back then, I compared it with Xiaomi's mega Mi 11 Ultra and the X70 Pro+ made good use of its unique gimbal stabilisation system (it also introduced its V1 imaging chip), which provided good stability while shooting video in all types of lighting conditions. Next up was the Vivo X80 Pro, which was a worthy successor to the same, it introduced features like a hand-held astrophotography mode and excelled at low light imaging using all 4 of its rear cameras. The Vivo X90 Pro which followed saw Vivo losing its focus missing some hardware essentials and struggling to deliver on the camera and performance front as well.
