If you're plugged into the latest smartphone news, you may have seen the Vivo X100 Pro taking the internet's mobile tech blogs, sites, and socials by storm. Its popularity isn't just because its camera is so impressive, but it specifically comes down to its processing being something of an AI extravaganza. Vivo sticks it to Samsung's AI-everything with the most in-your-face AI photo processing we've seen to date – but here's the real zinger – we don't hate it. In fact, the Vivo X100 Pro is an excellent camera phone that's winning us over day by day.

Vivo has a long track record of making Zeiss co-branded phones with impressive cameras. From the gimbal-stabilized Vivo X80 Pro to the 1-inch sensor-packing Vivo X90 Pro. And the new X100 Pro's standout features are its superb telephoto camera, and its mind-boggling photo processing.
