The Vivo V15 Pro isn’t the cheapest smartphone on sale, but it’s certainly one of the more impressive ones. If you’ve seen pictures or reviews of the handset, you’ll immediately see why it’s so popular. This review will help you decide if the phone’s worth the money – or if you should look elsewhere.
One of the best selling features of the vivo v15 vivo v15 is its high quality dual camera setup, which allows for taking high quality photographs even in low light situations. Unlike many smartphones that only allow for single camera use, the Vivo uses both rear cameras. It can therefore take multiple photos with the front camera. The other benefit to this is that the front and rear cameras can focus on different subjects, allowing you to get a better angle when taking a photograph. The Nokia 8.1 also offers an eight mega-pixel camera with laser auto-focus, but the vivo v15 offers a lot more functionality for the same price. For example, it includes a front and rear cameras that can be used to pan, zoom, remove background blur, or focus on a particular subject.
Despite its slim design, the vivo v15 is quite a large phone. It comes in at a width of 7.2mm, which is great for someone who wants a phone that can fit their hand. Despite its size however, the phone has a surprisingly large battery, which gives it the ability to last through several calls. Despite this, there are plenty of apps that are designed for larger screens, including the excellent Flipboard app which serves the Flip board as a virtual touch-screen. The phone also includes a fingerprint scanner, although it isn’t as easy to use as the capacitive one. The Nokia 8.1’s screen is also better than most Android phones, so users might find it more comfortable to use than the iPhone.
Taking a photograph in low light can be difficult, but the vivo v15 successfully handles this challenge thanks to its f/2.0 aperture and Dual Shot mode. It uses the sensor, as well as optical image stabilization, for this feature. This allows the smartphone to take a picture in dimly lit areas, although the lack of OIS means that it is unable to take a shot in bright light. Despite this limitation, the phone is still a very capable camera, despite having to make do with low light.
The vivo v15 is able to achieve high levels of performance thanks to the superior Adreno processor inside. This processor enables it to launch a number of applications quickly, which helps to boost the user interface. With the Adreno behind it, the device should perform flawlessly even in the most intensive gaming scenarios. Users will probably find that the majority of their friends will find the games they play on HTCways much more enjoyable thanks to the superior gaming performance.
The battery life on the vivo v15 is not particularly great, however it does remain quite long, in comparison with other phones in the market. It should have about six to seven hours of battery life, which is standard for most smartphones. However, users might find that they only get around five hours of life from the phone, despite the high level of performance. This problem might be down to the way the battery draws power in low levels. Users should therefore allow the app they use to run for at least seven to ten hours without stopping, if they want to enjoy a prolonged phone call or game.
