Vivo and Oppo have been battling it out in the sub-20k segment, and the new launch from Vivo – The much awaited Vivo V7 Plus, is pitted directly against Oppo F5. In this post, we will talk about Vivo V7 Plus and its features, pros and cons in detail. For the uninitiated, Oppo F5 price is around 21K, which is the same range for Vivo V7 Plus.
Vivo V7 Plus looks like a decent model as far as looks are concerned. Although it has a plastic back, it does feel premium and gives that metal appeal from a distance. The brand has included a few chrome accents on the edges on the top and bottom, which does add to the aesthetics. The 5.99-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is pretty okay, but for this segment, you at least expect a Full HD display. It is powered by a non-removable Li-Ion 3225 mAh battery, which offers a day of good use, but again, there is nothing extremely extraordinary about that too.
Vivo has got the 1.8GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa core processor for V7 Plus¸ which isn’t half bad, coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. At this price range, there are models with better processors, but even with extensive usage and heavy gaming, we didn’t find any performance issues with V7 Plus. The Funtouch OS 3.2 skin is updated to Android 7.1.2 (Nougat), and the UI doesn’t feel heavy or bloated, except that the influence of iOS is quite evident in almost everything. You also get the ‘Smart Split 3.0’, which allows to use two apps at the same time. To activate the mode, just use three-finger swipe down. Basically, you don’t have to leave an app to check another.
Vivo is known for packing the best cameras on the front, and Vivo V7 Plus is no different either. It comes with a 24 MP camera on the front, and even in the worst lighting conditions, the camera does work well. On the rear, you get a 16-MP variant, which isn’t the best in class for sure.
Finally, let’s sum things up. Vivo V7 Plus is a great for the selfie lover, but don’t expect the best as far as processor is concerned. It doesn’t fit the best screen either, but you get the new 18:9 aspect display, which isn’t bad. Color options include Champagne Gold and Matte Black, both being decent options. Vivo V7 Plus price is around 22k, but if you check online, you might get a discount on this one. Keeping all things aside, Vivo V7 Plus does feel like a decent buy, especially if you use your phone for more selfies and perfect photos!
