vivo V7+ review
Telephony and phonebook
The phonebook app on the vivo V7+ follows the general styling of the rest of the interface, meaning it's entirely custom. There are tabs, but unless you are big on groups, or want to jump to the dialer or to your personal info page all the time, chances are you won't be using them too often.
The vivo V7+ posted a Very Good score in our loudspeaker loudness test. The sound is rather shallow and there is some distortion at maximum level depending on what you're playing. It's loud when it matters, and some high-pitch tones can even reach up to 92dB.

The vivo V7+ comes with a simple gallery. It consists of two tabs, one for your camera roll, the other for your various albums. Viewing a single image offers the usual basic options like cropping and rotation as well as a quick shortcut for sharing.
The vivo V7+ comes with a dedicated video application. It offers a basic interface and few advanced features but gets the job done. The player itself does offer Hi-Fi support as well as DLNA and subtitles.
An interesting feature is the pop-out mode. It spawns a small draggable video window on top of the UI, but you can't resize it.
The music player, bundled with Funtouch OS and curiously named iMusic, doesn't look overly impressive but is quite pleasant to use and has a few tricks hidden away.
Launching the app brings you to a selection of quite a few browsing options. The V7+ comes with preinstalled sound profiles for a few headsets in the iMusic settings. There is also a Hi-Fi mode, but it only works with headphones attached.
The FM radio is a nice touch. Sure, you can stream with Play Music, but FM broadcasting is free and available at places where there might not be data connection. The Radio app is capable of broadcast recording, but it lacks RDS (the feature that displays the station name and other info).
Audio output doesn't disappoint
The vivo V7+ did well in the first part of our audio quality test. The clarity with an active external amplifier is as good as we've come to expect, while the loudness is above average.
Adding a pair of headphones to the mix introduces a little extra intermodulation distortion and a moderate hike in stereo crosstalk. Volume drops to average levels, but considering the price of the V7+ it's hard to be unhappy with its performance here.
