Memory test, 12GB four-channel LPDDR5 6400Mbps memory, the copy speed reached nearly 1.8GB/s, and the write speed reached nearly 5.0GB/s.

Gaming Experiences

In the game testing session, we selected two representative mobile games that can reflect the performance of mobile phones with medium and high loads in an office environment with a room temperature of 26 degrees Celsius, namely Honor of Kings and Call of Duty.

During the test, we adjusted the screen’s brightness to 50% and the screen’s brightness to ensure the accuracy of the test. We used the highest image quality + highest frame rate for testing in the game and recorded the frame rate and temperature in the game and power consumption performance.

1. Glory of Kings

The mobile game Glory of Kings runs at a maximum frame rate of 60 frames under high-definition image quality + ultra-high resolution. After a round of fierce battles, the average frame rate is stable at 60.4FPS after a game of nearly 10 minutes. The frame rate in the game is challenging, like a straight-in severe average fluctuation is only 0.6FPS.

The average power consumption is only 2.026W, and the frame energy consumption is 33.6mW. Howev er, limited by the body’s small size and the folding hinge’s complex structures complex structure in the gap with the candy, particularly in heat dissipation. The maximum temperature of the front of the body reached 39.8 degrees Celsius in 10 minutes of a 60-frame mobile game. The temperature e on the back of the fuselage is 38.3 degrees Celsius, and you will feel a little heat when you hold it with both hands.

2. Call of Duty  

Call of Duty mobile game, when the smooth image quality + 90 frame mode is turned on, the frame rate will be dropped outside the game, so we only test the frame rate performance in the game battle. After a round of nearly 5 minutes of testing, the average frame rate is stable at The frame rate in the game is stable at 89.1FPS, with almost no fluctuations.

In terms of frame rate, the average frame rate has reached about 2.699W, and the frame power consumption is 30.3mW.

The higher the power consumption, the higher the temperature will naturally be. This is the temperature of the front image recorded by us temperature after three game tests. The highest three-game on the front of the fuselage is 41.4 degrees Celsius, and the back is 40.2 degrees Celsius. It will be more noticeable when holding both hands. Warm but not hot to the touch.


vivo X Flip rear dual camera module, the primary camera uses a 50-megapixel primary spectrum outsole primary camera – IMX866V, 1/1.56-inchprimarytosensitive unit, 1-micron single-pixel size, f/1.75 large aperture; it also supports a full-pix; itmnidirectional focusing and hardware-level HDR.

As expected, prevent battery life from being shortened or safety incidents caused by excessive current.

Next, we tested the charging and battery life of the vivo X Flip.

Charging test

Before the test, we consumed the phone’s power to 1% and unfolded the screen to charge in the off-screen state. After 10 minutes, the emphasis is set from 1% to 19%, 20 minutes to 35%, half an hour to 51%, and one hour to 93%. At this time, it enters the trickle charging mode. After 10 minutes of power charging To 96%, it took a full 75 minutes for the final full charge. Although the overall charging time is relatively long, it is also for safety reasons that the charging power is reduced to the best safety standard.

Endurance test

For the battery life, we use a professional battery life test tool – the battery dog ​​produced by Kuai Technology.

In terms of test items, we chose the limit battery life test and checked all the test items, including CPU high voltage, CPU multi-threading, AI recognition, picture browsing, video playback, and web browsing, to simulate user usage, scenarios, and restore the whole load to the greatesactualtent. Infinitely close to the actual power consumption.

For the test, we adjusted the screen brightness of the mobile phone to 50% and turned off the automatic brightness, and used the adaptive refresh rate to test. After the battery dog ​​cycled the power, the final power consumption from 100% to 9% took 9 hours and 44 minutes; after being converted to 1%, the overall battery life is about 10 hours and 40 minutes, which stands out among vertical folding screens.
