The VIVO V7+ runs Android Nougat under Vivo’s customized Fun touch skin. The iOS-inspired theme is a bit confusing and takes some time to get hold of. There is also 64 GB internal storage, expandable using MicroSD. VIVO has updated the software to 7.1.2. In the new version, notifications are shown similar to like the iOS platform. Fun touch OS is a single layered UI so all your app icons are laid out on the home screen. Due to the taller screen, it is difficult to reach all corners; therefore, Vivo has incorporated a few features like one-handed mode and gestures.

The UI also has something called Smart Split 3.0, which lets you use two apps at the same time. Incoming messages fromWhatsapp and Face book Messenger can be seen on one half of the display so you don't need to exit the application you're currently working on. You can force split-screen mode with a three-finger swipe down.

The dialler app is pretty standard and there isn’t a native video calling option, but it does have a built-in call recorder.The taller widest display is a good canvas for watching videos and clicking selfies. You have the option to adjust scaling when you play a video so that it either sticks to the original aspect ratio or fills the display completely. Video recording is possible with 1080p files perfectly well but it struggles with higher resolution files and unfortunately doesn’t play 4K videos at all.

However, the low screen resolution, plastic body, and budget class processor are still questionable.
