In the last couple of years, brands have launched endless devices and smartphones under 30k, targeting the mid-range customers. From simple Mi phones to iPhone 6 32GB, there are choices for every kind of customer. Vivo and Oppo, in particular, have been competing to get the attention of selfie-lovers, with phones that boast of incredible front cameras. Vivo V7 Plus is the latest offering from the brand, and it brings a few new things for the fans. Below are the aspects worth knowing.
Hardware and design
Vivo V7 Plus is one of the few devices under 21k to get the 18:9 aspect ratio display, and this is a first for the brand. However, this is just a 5.99-inch HD display, with 720×1440 pixels resolution. To be fair, they should have considered a Full-HD screen, keeping the competition in mind. In terms of hardware, the device comes with the dependable1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor matched with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. However, you can choose to expand the onboard memory to 256GB via a microSD card. The processor is decent for the price point, and even with gaming and multitasking, we didn’t face any heating issues.
Camera and battery
The brand has promoted Vivo V7 Plus for its cameras, and in that segment, this is the best smartphone you can buy for the price. It has a 24MP shooter on the front with LED flash, and even in low lighting, the camera performance is commendable. On the rear, there’s a 16 MP shooter, which also offers decent pictures, as long as you don’t expect something drastic for the price. The phone is powered by a 3225mAh non-removable battery, which offers a day’s charge when full. You get the choice of using dual SIM (GSM and GSM). The charge for this device is unusually large, and doesn’t support fast charging, which is a bummer for sure.
Things to note
First things first, Vivo V7 Plus isn’t a bad device. It offers exactly what is promised – a great phone with better cameras. If you are happy with that, there is no reason why you shouldn’t buy this one. However, the resolution could have been better for the price of 21k, but if you can still make peace with the 18:9 aspect ratio display, nothing to worry there as well. Oppo has launched a similar device around the same time with similar pricing, and the device will also have to compete with Samsung Galaxy A5 priced at 22k. Online stores does have a few discounts on this device, so do check for that. Compare your choices, but for Vivo fans, V7 Plus is a steal – Never stop clicking those selfies anymore.
