Reviews for the Vivo U20

60% Vivo U20 review: The latest budget contender
Source: Gadgets Now English
Vivo U20 is one of the cheapest phones to launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset. The strong features of the phone are its simple and sturdy design, nifty UI and good battery life. On the flip side, the camera performance of Vivo U20 in low-light conditions is not up to the mark. Also, graphic-intensive games don’t run smoothly on the device on medium and high settings. If gaming is not on your priority list and you are willing to overlook the poor low-light camera performance, Vivo U20 can be a good choice.

Vivo U20 Review: Light on your pocket, but a strong performer indeed
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at the Rs 10,990 (4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant) and Rs 11,990 (6GB RAM+ 64GB variant), the Vivo U20 is a good performer and offers a great battery backup. The camera may not impress all, but some shots come out very well. The phone is not heavy on your pocket. Considering an aggressive pricing and performance, this could well be a good option in the budget smartphone segment.

vivo U20 hands-on review

The vivo U20 is a very practical all-around smartphone with competitive pricing. It may not have any standout features as such, but it does reasonably well at everything, and we were pleased with the overall user experience. Overall, we think the vivo U20 is a really good value smartphone for its price range as it offers a lot of good features, performance and battery life and is one of the better options in its price range.

The vivo U20 is a really cool smartphone considering the price it comes at. When it comes to performance there is no doubt that this smartphone is amazing. Hence, if you are someone who wants to buy a device for gaming, camera and performance, we’d recommend you to get this one. The 5000mAh battery gives you enough juice and helps you to get through the day easily. The vivo U20 surely gets a thumbs up from us.

80% Vivo U20 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Vivo stirred up the competition when it launched the U10 in the sub-Rs. 10,000 market and the company is repeating that at a slightly more premium positioning with the Vivo U20. This new smartphone packs in powerful hardware and a big battery at an aggressive price. That said, the U20 isn't a perfect all-rounder; the cameras did leave us wanting.

80% Vivo U20 review: A true upgrade over first gen U-series smartphone
Source: The Indian Express English
The Vivo U20 is a true upgrade over the U10 but ends up feeling more like the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Vivo U20 does pretty well for its price range and it has all the elements one looks for in a budget device including the camera, battery, and performance. The Vivo U20 is also a good option for those who want to play graphics-heavy games but don’t want an expensive device.

80% Vivo U20 First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
If Vivo is hoping to take Xiaomi and Realme on, a lot will come down to camera quality, which we will evaluate very soon in our full review. We'll also test battery life, display quality, general usability, and of course raw performance. Overall though, from our first impressions, it seems as though the Vivo U20 could be quite popular, especially with fans of the brand.

Vivo U20 Review: A powerhouse in sub Rs 12,000 segment?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Vivo U20 offers some good display and the performance is up to the mark. The camera sure gives a tough competition to other smartphones, though the wide-angle lens could have been better. The software still needs a lot of refinement and it is high time for the company to bring easy-to-usage in its user interface. So, if you are looking for a smartphone with longer battery, good cameras and performance along with a decent display and you don't need a stock experience, then you can consider Vivo U20.

Qualcomm Adreno 612: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 675) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. Our first benchmarks show a performance comparable to the old Adreno 512 and therefore in the lower mid-range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 675: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 460 cores (two fast 2 GHz ARM Cortex-A76 based cores in a cluster and six power saving ARM Cortex-A55 based cores at 1.6 GHz) and a rather slow Adreno 612 GPU. Manufactured in the 11 nm LPP process at Samsung.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.193 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
