A couple of month ago Vivo announced it’s V7 with . But it has been released only now. Vivo V7 is compact model of V7+.
Pros of Vivo V7
• Best rear and front camera performance
• Compact size yet a large screen
• Feature-rich interface
• Good for day-to-day use
• Quick fingerprint scanner
Cons of Vivo V7
• Not the best hardware for this price tag
• HD screen resolution
• Face unlock function does not work well
V7 features 5.7-inch full view screen display with 18:9 aspect ratios. So you get larger display on smaller size phone with 5.2-inch screen. The phone is still lightweight, compact and easy to carry. As its slim bezels, high brightness level and wider viewing angles are amazing; its HD resolution is poor. Honor 9i and Oppo F5 with bigger screens have full HD resolution at same price. Vivo’s build quality is good and it includes fingerprint scanner, ergonomically placed at the back of the phone.
Like Vivo V7+, Vivo V7 comes with wide-angle 24 Mega Pixel front cameras for selfie lovers. We found crisp details and minimal noise. The rear camera is no slouch and it takes great images in day and at night. You will get a bokeh portrait mode and beauty mode for both front and rear cameras. The only problem is the lack of 4K video recording.
Hardware specs of V7 are same as V7+. V7 gives smooth performance and can cater most if not all the games that aren’t very heavy. 32GB internal storage is less considering because you can have 128 GB and 64 GB Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro and Honor 9i respectively at lower price. I got a full day backup from its 3,000 mAh battery on regular use, however with heavy usage, charge it twice a day.
This phone runs Android 7.1 and includes many useful features like one hand mode, smart split, face unlock and app clone. But face unlock isn’t very precise and needs bright light for proper functioning. I suggest sticking with fingerprint scanner.
