Reviews for the Vivo V17
Source: Gadget Show
At the price of Rs 22,990, Vivo V17 is an overpriced smartphone that offers mediocre processor and an array of above-average cameras. All of which can be found on any other similar priced smartphone in the market today, except maybe the camera. It seems that Vivo is just trying to keep the V-series smartphone lineup alive by launching this phone. The smartphone does most of the things right such as day-to-day tasks, offers a good design which more or less premium despite it has a plastic build. But it just feels like a smartphone from the past, perhaps from 2018. You will find better phones at this price point as this one just gets the job done.

After our round of testing, the Vivo V17 came out as a well-rounded smartphone that ticks most of the boxes offering decently powerful hardware and good cameras. This is no flagship but Vivo is offering the latest design with a punch-hole display, good gaming performance and a day-long battery life. Check the full review to know more.

The Vivo V17 is positioned below the Vivo V17 Pro and swaps the dual-selfie pop-up module for a tiny hole in the display. Vivo has picked an excellent AMOLED panel with good viewing angles, and the hole isn't distracting. The V17 also offers decent battery life and fast charging.

The daylight photos came out to be crisp and well-detailed and the close-ups looked good as well. However, we faced some problems with the macro lens. Coming to the low light, the results were a mixed bag. We did notice some grains and noises. Furthermore, photos clicked using wide-angle mode in low light conditions delivered some average results. To conclude, the Vivo V17 offers a mixed bag results in the camera department.

Despite these promising features, Indian buyers are highly price-sensitive, so it is interesting to see that Vivo has positioned this phone above Rs. 20,000. In terms of specifications, the competition including Xiaomi, Realme, Samsung, Motorola, and others have several compelling options that are priced lower.

At this price, the Vivo V17 offers great value. The phone sports a clean design and looks unique. It captures great pictures in almost all situations and does a great job with macro and low-light shots. It offers a long-lasting battery life and supports fast charging support inside the box. The only area where I believe Vivo V17 could have been slightly better is hardware.

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.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
75.6%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
