Look for smartphones under 20k in the Indian market, and you will be flooded with choices. Brands have been launching new devices left, right and center, and depending on your preferred features, you can always find one to match your needs. If you are a selfie addict, Vivo V7 might seem like a decent choice. It was launched recently after it’s elder brother with a bigger screen – Vivo V7 Plus, was announced in August. In this post, we take a look at the features, pros and cons at a glance with the things you can expect from this device. Before, let’s mention that Vivo V7 price is slightly lower than 20k, but you can always get discounts online.
Vivo V7 packs a 5.7-inch IPS FullView display for the price, with 18:9 aspect ratio, which is a welcome factor. However, if you are fond of full-HD screens at this price, this might feel a tad overwhelming. Coming to the build, Vivo V7 comes with a plastic body, which doesn’t really justify, given that many devices already have full-metal body for much lesser prices. However, it must be noted that the device doesn’t really feel complicated or flimsy to hold. Under the body, it runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, which again is a tad below the expectations, but yes, with 4GB RAM, we didn’t really feel that it lagged in terms of performance. Next, you get 32GB of onboard memory, which is just half of what you get with Vivo V7 Plus.
Cameras and more
Vivo is known for creating devices for selfie lovers, and it’s no surprise that Vivo V7 packs a 24MP shooter on the front with LED flash. Even we were on the go or had poor lighting, the front camera clicked impeccable pictures. On the rear, you have a 16MP camera, which again comes with a list of additional features, but in terms of picture quality, it doesn’t really score over the front shooter. The device runs on Funtouch OS 3.2, a fork of Android 7.1.2 Nougat, so it’s kind of a bummer for those who are used to the stock Android experience. Vivo V7 also features the Smart Split, which allows you to use two apps at the same time.
Overall, Vivo V7 is a decent phone. It is smaller than Vivo V7 Plus in terms of screen size and memory, but it’s not a bad choice for sure. Vivo V7 has a 3000mAh battery, which is decent but nothing extraordinary. The device doesn’t have support for fast charging. If you are in mood for a selfie phone that doesn’t perform below par, Vivo V7 isn’t a bad choice. Check online for the better deals.
