vivoV7 Review


The vivo V7 has sufficient to make an excellent impression – FullView display screen, classy layout, high-res cameras, snappy chipset, and also an elegant title – Official Smartphone for FIFA World Cup 2018. However past all these precisions is vivo’s proceeding commitment to the selfie digital photography and also the V7 puts your face on 24MP images.

There is vivo V7 and also however there is additionally the V7+. Unlike various other smart device pairs, the V7+ just obtains a 0.2″ bigger screen diagonal as well as 8% greater battery capability to be entitled to the additional plus sign in its version name. However we’re not judging – variety has constantly been a good idea. We’re simply below to discover what the duo has to offer and also whether it provides where it requires to.

Having actually currently evaluated the V7+, we understand the possibility of the V7, its efficiency, its imaging abilities, Face Unlock and Funtouch OS. So we approached this testimonial well prepared and also with high expectations.

vivo V7+ specs:

What we missed out on in the V7+ as well as now in the V7 – is the dual-band Wi-Fi assistance and also possibly the rapid charging. The Snapdragon 450 platform has indigenous assistance for those, but also for some factor, vivo selected not to apply them. Those are not deal-breakers, however, and also we are at the very least thankful to see a specialized microSD port on a dual-SIM phone once more.

Retail box

For a moderately valued mid-ranger, the V7’s retail package contains rewards. Along with the 10W battery charger and the microUSB wire, you’ll likewise obtain a comfy set of earbuds and also a thin silicone case. All V7 devices also come with a factory-applied screen protector.


The vivo V7 has the very same metallic appearances as the And also, once again it’s made from plastic. Yet, if we do not inform you regarding it, you would have a truly hard time figuring that out. Which means vivo did an excellent task developing the V7 covering and that counts for something.

And speaking of the V7+, we can not miss the opportunity to size up those two as well as show you just how tiny the distinction is.

The 5.7″ FullView widescreen is the V7’s standout function. Vivo has actually jumped on the 18:9 bandwagon, which allows for a much more immersive experience with some applications while bringing black strips with various other apps. This display trend is not vanishing anytime soon, so the devs need to really step up the optimization for this screen aspect proportion.

The 24MP selfie snapper, which we saw on the V7+, is still here, but evidently, there wasn’t enough space for V7+’s LED flash. Nonetheless, you can use the so-called screen flash, as well as it can obtain fairly bright too.

Unlike the V7+, vivo didn’t state the maker of the V7’s display glass, so can not recognize without a doubt just how challenging it is.

The V7 body may be plastic, however vivo has actually done an outstanding work out of the making it look like steel completely to the antenna lines sculpted around the top and base. As you can visualize, those are there for simply decorative objective as you can have the antennas on the inside when you have a plastic back cover.

The only piece of actual steel is discovered around the lump of the rear 16MP video camera. There is also a LED flash at the back, and the finger print sensing unit neighbors. The scanner is always-on and acknowledges finger prints in an immediate.

At 139g of weight, the V7 is very light for a phablet. It offers a rather safe grasp improved by the sharp curves around the sides. Single-handed procedures aren’t the V7’s solid side, but taking care of that large and yet lightweight body feels remarkably nice.

The Competition

The vivo V7 is a healthy mid-ranger with an immersive screen, outstanding cam package, and also snappy efficiency. It has what it requires to provide on every marketed attribute and also does not fall short in any element.

There are just a few widescreen devices in the same price bracket as the vivo V7.

The Oppo F5 is most likely the toughest challenger in Asia, with a bigger and higher-res screen, much more effective chip, while its primary video camera has a broader aperture for much better low-light shots.

The LG Q6 is a worldwide gadget, although its broader market reach comes with the expenditure of performance and imaging skills. And you have to forget those amazing selfies the V7 as well as F5 can do.

Xiaomi Mi A1, or 5X in China, has a twin main snapper with telephoto lens and also supposedly far better pictures. It can’t match the display element of the V7, but it offers greater pixel matter. Oh, and also it’s made from real metal.

Lastly, if a front LED is a must, there is the somewhat bigger vivo V7+. In addition to the 6″ screen and the selfie flash, you’ll additionally obtain Hi-Fi sound.

The Decision

Consistency is what makes vivo so good at making phones, and also we liked the V7 as much as the V7+. The small difference in size in some way makes a huge distinction when handling those as the V7 feels a lot easier to hold. Display and also performance are terrific for the class, while the well-rounded camera experience once again happy us on V7.



The V7 is extremely reasonably valued, as well as we make certain it will be successful in the targeted markets. Vivo has a great record of supplying with its phones, and also it’s fairly prominent among the young, also. The V7 is a healthy smart device providing on every assurance, so we would certainly recommend you consider it, as there is a likelihood the vivo V7 could be simply what you seek.
