vivo V7+ in for review
vivo might be a relatively new company, but in its eight years of existence, it managed to reach the global Top 5. A testament to its success is the sponsorship deal with FIFA for the next two World Cup tournaments.
Its latest phone, the vivo V7+, promises to deliver Greater Selfie thanks to its 24 MP front cam. We got it in the office to see if the device lives up to the slogan.
The first thing you notice with the front camera and is the clarity of the selfies. The photos are crisp and full of color in bright light. The LED flash on the front well to boost selfie quality in the dark as well.
One thing that bothered us is the HDR mode. We will investigate further as the review progresses, but it appears to be producing oversaturated and underexposed photos.
Fans of Beauty filters will also be pleased with the vivo V7+. You can remove blemishes and even make your face paler or rosier, if you are not satisfied with your skin color.
The main camera has 16 MP sensor and supports modes like slow-mo, timelapse and Ultra HD. The last one is quite intriguing - it takes 64 MP images by merging four frames into one. Compared with the 16 MP photos, these deliver more details, but don't allow the use of flash, HDR and filters.
The vivo V7+ is a device for the young and fashion-conscious consumers, as described by Kenny Zeng, CMO of Vivo India. Our task as we work on the review is to see to what extent such claims are valid.
