So, these are the Pros and Cons of the Vivo T1 44W, now let’s see the full features, specifications, and Review of the handset.

Vivo T1 44W Review

The Vivo T1 44W is worth buying as it has an FHD+ AMOLED display, 44W charging support, solid battery life, In-Display Fingerprint Scanner, and more.

However, Vivo has also done some compromises in it like the phone does not have 5G support, doesn’t have an IP rating, has a single speaker, and its processor is also not very powerful considering the price of the phone.

Let’s go deeper and see what Vivo has offered in its latest T-Series smartphone which is Vivo T1 44W.

Display

The Vivo T1 44W comes with a 6.44-inches FHD+ AMOLED Display that has a 2404 x 1080 pixels screen resolution, a 60Hz Refresh Rate. The device has a 20:9 Aspect ratio and a 90.12% Screen-to-body ratio.

The phone has Schott Xensation Glass Protection on the front side while the back panel and frame of the handset are made out of plastic.

Vivo has added Widevine L1 support which means you can play FHD+ content on OTT apps such as Amazon Prime Videos.

As the device has an AMOLED Panel, hence Vivo has added an In-Display fingerprint scanner which unlocks the device in less than a second.

Vivo T1 44W Display

Now, at this price point, most companies are providing 90Hz AMOLED Display but Vivo has gone with 60Hz which is good but not the best in the price. Also, Vivo has added the waterdrop notch design display which is not acceptable at this price.

Overall, the device has a good quality display and you will not face any kinds of problems with it.

Cameras

The smartphone comes with a triple rear camera setup with an LED flash in the rectangular module that consists of a 50MP primary lens with f/1.8 aperture, a 2MP depth lens with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP macro lens with f/2.4 aperture.

The Vivo T1 44W has a 16MP Selfie Camera Sensor with an f/2.0 aperture in the waterdrop notch design display. Both the rear and front cameras can record up to 1080p videos at 30fps.

The videos from the rear camera come out well in good lighting conditions but it suffers and losses out details in low light or night shooting.

Coming to photos, the 50MP primary sensor takes some good shots in the good lighting conditions and there are no issues with the dynamic range too. However, in the low lighting, the sensor suffers a lot, and sometimes, it’s not even useable.

Also, forget that 2MP+2MP camera sensors as they are added just for decoration and have no use in the real life, it only help companies in marketing.

Vivo T1 44W Cameras

The 16MP front camera captures some good shots with good detailing but here Vivo tries to saturate the images. So, if you like the white or saturated images, you will be happy with the selfie camera.

Overall, Vivo T1 44W has a good camera but here Vivo should have included an ultrawide sensor that is not present in it.

Performance

Under the hood, the Vivo T1 44W comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 Processor which is paired with Adreno 610 GPU for graphics. The device runs on Android 12-based Funtouch OS 12 skin out of the box.

The smartphone comes with up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.2 Storage. There is also a hybrid SIM slot by which users can expand the storage by up to 1TB.

The Vivo T1 44W also has Virtual RAM availability. However, the extended RAM 2.0 feature is a gimmick and used only for marketing purposes and has no use in real-life, so forget about that.

The processor used in this handset is not built for heavy gaming, however, it’s a good processor for day-to-day tasks and there you will not face any kind of issues.

Vivo T1 44W Performance

So, if you are a heavy gamer who wants to use this device for playing BGMI or Freefire all day then you can skip this device because it’s not capable of heavy gaming. However, if you are a normal user who doesn’t play games all day then you will not face any problems.

Overall, the performance is good but again it’s not made for heavy gamers.

Battery

The Vivo T1 44W packs a 5,000 mAh Battery that supports 44W Fast Charging. Vivo has also provided a 44W Adapter in the box.

Now, the Snapdragon 680 is a power-efficient chipset and it will give you better battery backup. The device will give you a one-day backup easily but if you’re a heavy user then you will need to charge the device twice a day.

Overall, the battery of the phone is good and the Snapdragon 680 SoC also helps a lot.

Audio

The device does not have dual stereo speakers, instead, it has a single speaker which is loud, but still, Vivo needs to provide a dual stereo speaker, so Vivo has done cost-cutting here. Also, at this price point, Vivo does not provide a dual stereo speaker.

The device has a 3.5 mm Audio Jack which means you can plug your wired earphones or headphones without any issues. It also has a secondary noise cancellation microphone which will help in calling.

Overall, the audio quality of the phone is good and is not the best at the price.
