Vivo recently came up with Vivo V7 and Vivo V7 Plus, both within the 22k-sub segment. The smartphones are similar in terms of design, hardware and UI, and Vivo V7 is cheaper by a small margin. Here’s a quick take on Vivo V7 before you grab this one.
Features and specifications
Vivo V7 comes with a plastic back, which is a bummer for the price point. Many devices at a much lower price are offering a full-metal layout. While Vivo V7 doesn’t feel bumpy or flimsy, the overall build could have been so much more. For the display, 5.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen – another letdown, given that full HD is expected at this price point. However, the 18:9 display does offer better feedback for entertainment and gaming. Under the plastic body, you have the Qualcomm Octa-core Snapdragon 450 processor, which is supported by 4GB RAM and 32GB onboard memory. If you consider the internal memory, Vivo V7 Plus scores better with 64GB ROM. The non-removable 3000mAh is okay again, and we didn’t have any issues of heating so far, which is one of the many positives.
UI, camera and more
At a time, when brands are trying hard to get rid of custom skins, Vivo seems to be happy with its interface. The device runs on Funtouch OS 3.2 updated to Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and you cannot help but note the similarities with iOS. Why would an Android phone want to resemble an iPhone? Vivo knows better. It does get the Smart Split feature, which allows you to switch between apps without quitting one for the other. Vivo is essentially known for bringing the best front cameras on board, and Vivo V7 is no different either. It comes with a 24MP camera on the front with LED light, and the photos come clear and crisp even on the go and in low lighting. On the rear, you get a 16MP shooter, which isn’t half-bad and has better features and inclusions, but still the front camera feels and clicks clearer pictures.
Vivo V7 is a good device for the price you pay, but if you want to get something more, Vivo V7 Plus is probably a better device for display, battery and on-board memory. Vivo V7 Price is around 22k, but you can always get it at a discount online. If you have been looking for a phone that performs decently and offers good selfies, this is a good choice. The design and build could have been so much more, but yes, Vivo has covered most of the flaws with it’s competent camera duo. For that alone, this isn’t a bad deal.
