We've conducted a detailed review of the vivo X20 Plus, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the vivo X20 Plus

Vivo X20 Plus's size

The vivo X20 Plus is 3.2inches (80.1mm) wide, 6.5inches (165.3mm) tall, and 0.3inches (7.5mm) thick. The size makes it a bit difficult to use with one hand.
