Vivo V21 5G test: a smartphone gifted in selfies


Like many of its mid-range competitors, Vivo explains wanting to stand out in the photo. This V21 5G offers a fairly classic configuration, composed of a wide-angle of 64 Mpx whose lens opens at f / 1.8, of an ultra-wide-angle of 8 Mpx (f / 2.2) and d ‘a 2 Mpx (f / 2.4) macroscopic sensor. On this price range, the Xiaomi Mi 10T 5G had convinced us, and it is therefore to the latter that we will compare it.

Main module: 64 megapixels, f / 1.8, eq. 24 mm

Vivo also uses the technique of pixel-binning, which consists of grouping four photosites into one to get more light. By default, the smartphone captures pictures in 16 megapixels, but it is possible to exploit its full definition of 64 megapixels to obtain theoretically more detailed images.

By day, the main module delivers rather convincing shots. In particular, it offers much brighter colors than its competitor. On the other hand, the Mi 10T takes off thanks to a much higher level of detail. It is obvious to the portrait, the lion’s face or the texture of the book. For its part, the V21 suggests a flashier image, but much smoother. Despite everything, it remains very readable, but some small elements will necessarily undergo the passage of the algorithm. The Mi 10T easily keeps our preference.

At night, this choice becomes more consistent. On the Mi 10 T, noise makes its appearance and the device is forced to drastically reduce the details. We even have the impression that the faces are blurred. The treatment of V21 is more convincing. Despite the digital smoothing (and a strong rise in ISO), we manage to keep a fairly good general precision. The result is far from perfect, but this time the advantage goes to Vivo.

64 MP mode

It is possible to take pictures in full definition, by going to the “More” tab and choosing the “High resolution” mode.

In 64 Mpx mode, the reinforcement of the micro-contrasts does not translate into a significant gain of the image. We can certainly see the irregularities on the lion’s skin, but the whole is not necessarily clearer. It will eventually be used to easily crop a photo or to capture a busy scene, such as a landscape. Anyway, no surprise like the A52 5G for example.

At night, the situation is similar. We are entitled to a few more details, but not enough to motivate us to choose to capture shots four times as heavy.

Ultra wide-angle module: 8 megapixels, f / 2.2, eq. 16 mm

Ultra wide-angle modules quickly became popular, even on entry-level. But they are rarely convincing outside the premium segment. Unfortunately, Vivo’s is no exception to the rule.

Xiaomi Mi 10T (eq 15 mm, f / 2.4, ISO 117, 1/50 s)
Vivo V21 5G (16mm eq, f / 2.2, ISO 349, 1/50 s)

As you can see, there isn’t much of a match between the two smartphones when it comes to the ultra wide angle. Admittedly, the Mi 10T has a 16 Mpx sensor against 8 Mpx for the Vivo, but that does not explain everything. On the left, the rendering is largely lacking in sharpness and digital smoothing cannot properly delimit each element. The colors look washed out. It will therefore be very difficult to use the image by zooming in as much as possible.

Xiaomi Mi 10T (eq 15 mm, f / 2.4, ISO 4800, 1/2 s)
Vivo V21 5G (16mm eq, f / 2.2, ISO 6484, 1/2 s)

At night, the image is almost unusable. It is nevertheless interesting to underline that it is a little better than the Mi 10T, decidedly very in difficulty in the night situations.

Front and video module

The main module on the back of the V21 5G allows you to shoot in 4K at 30 fps. The result is good, rich in detail and the dynamics of the image are respected. It is possible to use a more advanced stabilization mode in Full HD at 30 fps. Only theA52 5G manages to stand up to him, but Vivo’s proposal on this point is really convincing.
