I guess no one would have thought that it's not even December yet, but next year's two flagship platforms have already made their official debut in production models. As a representative of MediaTek, the vivo X100 series, which carries the slogan "full flagship", is equipped with the latest Dimensity 9300 platform, so what kind of performance will the X100 have as a standard version? The X100 is a standard version of the X100, so how does it stack up to the standard version?

A new take on the circular module
The image module of the vivo X100 is designed in a very unique style. This unique design is not reflected in the overall thinking of the module or even the back cover, after all, the circular module, symmetrical arrangement and the module echoed the arc line, these elements are not unfamiliar to us, but in the right side of the module of the string of the moon, it is a very unique.
The moon is actually an arc made of aircraft-grade mirror stainless steel, glittering with a shiny, sharp metallic luster, and below it is a sun texture taken from a watch, with the corresponding parameters engraved, proclaiming its identity as a ZEISS full-focal-length imaging module.
At the same time, it also seems to be in response to this lunar design language, this vivo X100 Star Trail Blue in our hands also adopts the Star Trail micro-nanolithography process, which makes a circle of concentric lines around the module, and with the flow of light and shadow, it will set off a circle of ripples on the back cover, which renders a marvelous look and feel on a flat surface, which is still very interesting.

In addition, the body of the Vivo X100 also supports IP68 dust and water resistance this time, facing the unexpected reliability has been improved again. But then again, although this side orientation of the string moon design to enhance the texture and increase the recognition, but also will destroy the overall sense of symmetry of the model, I do not know whether you will prefer or feel sorry?
Theoretically strong Dimensity 9300, how is it in real life?
After the exterior, let's take a look at the "inside" of the Vivo X100. There's no doubt that the Dimensity 9300 is the flagship platform with the strongest presence in this part of the configuration, and its memory configuration is also quite impressive, with the highest configuration version equipped with 16GB of LPDDR5T memory at a rate of 9.6Gbps, which is extremely "luxurious" for a standard flagship. This is extremely "luxurious" for a standard flagship.
With such an exaggerated configuration, the vivo X100's score came in at 2.18 million points, which could rise further if tested in colder weather.
In the actual game, we also invited the game "Original God", also in the extremely loaded Sumeru City running scene, the vivo X100 can achieve an average frame rate of 59.7, half an hour of testing from the beginning to the end of the almost stable in a straight line, and power consumption is only about 5.3W, this performance can be said to be quite powerful.
From this high frame rate and low power consumption, the Vivo X100's Blue Crystal x Tenguiz 9300 achieves a very good performance, more stable operation and at the same time more power-saving and cool, and is already one of the flagship models with the best gaming performance.
The amazing combination of the standard version and the Zeiss full-focus module
Last year, we commented that the standard version of flagship series had started to "roll" the secondary camera, and the competition came down to the concept of "full-focal length", and the vivo X100 standard version is also equipped with the Zeiss full-focal-length module, which includes a 50-megapixel main camera with a large base, a 6400-megapixel main camera, and a 6400-megapixel main camera with a large base. The vivo X100 standard edition also comes with a full-focus ZEISS module, including a 50-megapixel main camera with a large base, a 64-megapixel ZEISS Super Telephoto, a 50-megapixel Super View Ultra Wide Angle, and even a laser focus camera.
The vivo X100 Pro is pictured here.
The actual performance of this module is also quite satisfying. As for the main camera, this new sensor also delivers the familiar excellent image quality performance, both day and night, the imaging quality is quite good, the style is still light and sharp (of course, you can also choose to be a little more robust texture or natural colors), the first look will be very good.
Of course, the flagship models of the main camera to the development of today is really difficult to distinguish between the intuitive gap, but also depends on the performance of the secondary camera. vivo X100's secondary camera in this part of the very high impression of the score, the two sub-camera also give full play to the strength of the sensor, not only to maintain with the wide-angle main camera is more consistent with the style of the rendering of the image quality can also be appreciated.
In particular, the periscope telephoto, which debuted on the standard version, not only maintains good image details after digital zoom to 233mm (10×), but also has a large aperture of f/2.57, which makes the image quality performance quite good in both daytime and nighttime.
What's even more rare is that it also supports macro shooting, which allows you to take detailed macro shots. From this point of view, in addition to not having the APO lens of its big brother, the vivo X100 Pro, this telephoto has been nearly "perfect", which can be considered an extremely outstanding configuration in the standard version.
Other good features worth checking out
vivo X100 series screen this time in the parameters of some upgrades, the new super retina 8T eye protection screen continues the 1260P level of resolution, but the peak brightness increased to 3000nits, combined with vivo self-developed image chip V2 and algorithmic support, in the smoothness of the game and the use of the night and other scenarios have a better performance.
The Blue Ocean battery is also a highlight of the vivo X100 series. Although the capacity is inferior to its big brother, the battery capacity of the vivo X100 is still 5000mAh, with 120W dual-core flash charging, the overall endurance strength is still very outstanding, and to pick a regret, it is about only the Pro version to support wireless charging.

OriginOS 4 is one of the highlights to watch out for. As the first model of this new system, vivo X100 has reached a very good cooperation with it, in addition to the smoothness and appearance of these originally very advantageous points, this time it also opened the blue heart of the small V AI capabilities, can be AI intelligent creation, generate pictures or copy, etc., a lot of gameplay, like the friends to get after the hands of the more you can try.
Compared to the standard version of our perception, the Vivo X100 has brought us a lot of surprises in terms of image and comprehensive configuration, and we can even treat it as a "Pro" level product to a certain extent, and even the official attitude of Vivo itself indicates that this is a "bright standard and dark Pro" level product. The Vivo official's own attitude indicates that this is a model that is "clearly labeled and secretly a Pro". In the current pricing system, such a set of Pro-level configuration coupled with the standard version of the price, vivo X100 is indeed full of sincerity, and even "killing power".
But on the other hand, it leaves a lot to the imagination, such as the lack of wireless charging, as well as the shape of the screen is still in its own "comfort zone", as well as fingerprint unlocking and other configurations of some small regrets. Perhaps at some point in the future, we'll see a new generation of X series flagships.
Of course, as consumers, we have to look at the present. If you're looking for a full-focus imaging experience, but don't want to sacrifice feel and weight for an "imaging flagship," the vivo X100 is one of the best options to consider at this stage.
