2022 Winners and losers: vivo

vivo was among the top smartphone players, even if Western markets once again only saw a fraction of its lineup. The company launched some impressive products in 2022, but it didn’t go without missteps too.

Winner: vivo X80 Pro

The X80 series did not have a Pro+ variant, meaning the X80 Pro was the flagship this time around. It launched in April, and at the time, it was everything you would want from a flagship – the best chipset from Qualcomm (or Mediatek at home), four impressive cameras, Zeiss optics with T* lens coating, OIS, fast charging.

Eight months later, it still is a phone…
