Vivo’s plus point is its mid-range mobiles in the V series. While the company has already brought its X50 premium smartphone, it is now trying to up its design game with the latest V series devices.
Vivo brings its model ‘Vivo V20’ with an eye-catching design and features. To know more, read our review.
1. Vivo V20: Eye-Catching Design and Display
Vivo puts effort into the design in the middle range priced category, and the V20 is an ultimate example. It is slim at 7.38mm in thickness and weighs just 171g, coupled with round corners that make it comfortable to hold on to.
The phone features the “rectangular” three-camera module, the same as Vivo’s higher-priced X50 model. The shiny frame of the phone is plastic made but still compliments the design. The power and volume rocker are on the right side while the SIM slot (dual SIM) is left. A 3.5 mm jack for headphone and a mono loudspeaker at the bottom is also there.
The phone possesses an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is extremely quick and very responsive when you want to unlock it.
The phone has a 6.44 inch AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio, and its resolution is FHD+. The display, which has a water-drop notch instead of punch-hole displays used in the previous phones like V17 or V19, gives sharp and vibrant colors.
The phone comes packed with Qualcomm’s SD 720G octa-core SoC, which is clocked at 2.3 GHz, and 8GB of RAM under the hood. The phone works on Android with FunTouch OS 11, based on Android 11.
The smartphone handled everyday tasks very smoothly, and the total performance was very highly acceptable, with a few problems with boot time for a few apps. Some lag is also noticeable when you play high-end graphic intensive games on the device.
V20 comes packed with a 4000 mAH battery, which will easily last a day even if you play videos or games moderately. The 33W FlashCharge charger offers quick charging.
Vivo V20 comes with a triple back camera setup, which has a 64 Megapixel primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. A 44MP selfie camera having eye recognition autofocus comes in the front. The phone clicks pictures with extreme details and lively colors in daylight. However, indoor shots are not that impressive.
Night photography is also fine, along with considerable details in the shots. Night mode will need you to hold your phone steady, also gets useful points after processing the picture.
The wide-angle capture good pictures, however pictures in less light are not that impressive.
V20’s front camera is the best part of the device, with an eye autofocus feature. This feature is available in mirrorless DSLRs. Once we switch on the option in settings, the camera captures lively colors and beautiful pictures.
Vivo V20: Whether you should purchase it or not
Vivo’s game is compelling in its category, with the camera being the ultimate USP. With V20, it focuses on the design and has come up with a design that looks premium. You can consider purchasing it if you don’t want 5G and aren’t looking to go beyond Rs 25,000.
