vivo V15 Pro hands-on review

20 February 2019
After the release of two high-end, exotic smartphones from the NEX lineup, vivo is finally ready to bring some of the innovations to the mid-range segment and the V15 Pro is the first one to do it. The smartphone looks and feels like a flagship device offering rare features like full-screen display, pop-up selfie cam and under-display fingerprint reader. Vivo promises a manageable price tag but at what cost?

Sort by:

"The side frame is just 1.75mm while the top one is merely 2.22mm"
Why didn't mention bottom bezels size as well?

almost there vivo but no quite with that small chin.

the camera result is good for the price, but not for pixel peeper.

it only good for small screen, not for zooming in.
other than that, this is a terrific phone..

YK TECHNICAL, 22 Feb 2019Hello sir you are right but today is 2019 not 18 micro USB ... morethanks God you at least put spaces between words

I really really really hate the trend of using plastic for frames, plastic backs and usb ports. What the hell?

FYI
- NFC: Supported in Taiwan, HK, SG, RU only
- radio support (supported 3G, 4G Bands) is just at very low entry-level;
(No 3G Quad-Band !!!)

- OIS: Not supported
- EIS: Not supported,
- no notification LED,
- Widevine DRM L3 certification only,
that means users won’t get HD Streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime;

What does it mean
- virtual gyroscope - ??

phone does not have real gyroscope as well ??

I just see . . . shortage everywhere.
Why reviewers don't check for such a things?!

but 8 - 128 GB version listed by vivo as well.
(Check for vivo Global >> V15 Pro >> FAQ )

would like to see a retractable camera phone in my country, thats the most sensemaking trend in the past few years if u ask me since it enables the screen to fill more area and the concern of companies spying on you goes away a little bit.

Hello sir you are right but today is 2019 not 18 micro USB port is older then old micro USB start in 2008 OK & no screen protection any kind of gorilla glass y you say in the price of 21k poco is giving SD 845 in 2018 we don't want 855 flagship processor but give at least last year courses which is 845 in Vivo V 15 Pro no we have entered into 2019 but why you also is giving plastic body and plastic bag why they can't afford metal body with glass back Vivo should ask their customer what they want why the company is not going with customer but I like the best design of 2019 for the design and the display I will give you 9 out of 10 you should see new phone launching how the customer react on the phone why I am reacting on this topic is because of I am waiting for this phone for last for months I want to buy this phone but Vivo has broken my heart I need a good and perfect phone I use every phone almost 3 to 4 years so this is why Vivo V 15 Pro host down in my eyes this is my opinion even every youtubers are telling about this ok no problem don't ask anybody but you can ask I make a survey on the youtuber of India as you can give you the perfect piece of art of your phone

Expensive for what is offering. It should be 20k.

Vivo will see less sales in 2019 -- microUSB and no NFC in regions that need it!
Also AFAIK, their OS and update policy are far from the best.

And yes emmc storage with micro usb

Now justify the cost of rs30k for a plastic body ,no display glass protection,people shouting at other brands ,just because it has a motor and in display finger print doesn't make it of valued cost,SD 675 where poco and Asus are giving flagship grade sd845 in less that price and Asus even giving a glass and metal body with gorrilla glass,it's very to say this brand doesn't have this and that brand doesn't give that , especially the reviewers 90 percent don't know what they speak of

It is time for Vivo to start selling its products in Africa. Vivo should work with carriers like Airtel and Vodaphone to expand its reach in the continent
