Reviews for the Vivo V20

Vivo V20 Review: A Great All-Rounder
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Vivo V20 Pro does hit the right notes and performs as a great all rounder. The device is worth its price tag despite some of the trade-offs such as a 90Hz display when compared to the Nord.

Source: Gadgets Now English Archive.org version
At the asking price of Rs 24,999, the Vivo V20 might not be the best mid-range smartphone out there in terms of performance. But, in terms of camera, looks, design and battery it is among the few good phones available in this price range.

78% vivo V20 review
Source: GSM Arena English Archive.org version
As you can see, specs-wise, the V20 falls short of matching some of its competitors. Yet, it's not a bad phone either. Putting together a well-performing chipset with an excellent display, big enough battery, and a stylish, compact chassis is no easy task. Vivo was able to do that with the V20, it's just that mid-range competition is cut-throat.

Vivo V20 Review: The Mid-ranger Camera Champ

Vivo V20: Truly Delights Every Moment
Source: Exhibit.tech English Archive.org version
Overall, the V20 is for someone who fancies a good looking phone and a great camera performance over best-in-class specs. It’s a mid-range device targeted to content creators who constantly shoot videos/images from their phone’s selfie camera. But, if you’re someone who prefers a better overall performance then you might want to consider the OnePlus Nord or Samsung Galaxy M51 which are also at the same price point.

The V20 isn’t a perfect phone, but it knows its strengths. Beautiful hardware design and a thin, light hand feel combine with prodigious selfie camera capabilities - and all at a budget price, no less - to make it clear that this is a phone for the TikTok generation.

vivo V20 and V20 Pro Review: Selfie Monsters
Source: Unbox English Archive.org version
The vivo V20 and V20 Pro leans heavily on the company’s established selfie dominance to woo consumers, though there’s plenty to like here aside from that. They’re the prettiest phones we’ve seen yet in the mid-range market, and there’s enough performance under the hood to satisfy all but the ardent speedsters. It’ll be facing tough competition from Xiaomi’s recently launched flagship slayers, but there’s still a subset of the phone-buying population that prefers the vivo brand over the brand that everyone’s talking about.

Source: India Today English Archive.org version
Well, the answer to this depends solely on what you're looking for from your next smartphone. If the design and build quality are what you're after, then you can hardly go wrong with the Vivo V20. As we mentioned above, it is one of the better-designed phones in the segment, and such is the level of craftsmanship used in putting together the device, that the Vivo V20 actually feels more expensive than it actually is.

80% Vivo V20 review: Back to the roots, literally
Source: The Indian Express English Archive.org version
The Vivo V20 is an impressive mid-range smartphone, but it’s not perfect. The problem with the V20 is that Vivo has played it safe and there is not much dramatically different from its predecessors. That’s not a bad thing necessarily, given the high level of competition in the mid-range segment. With smartphones like the Galaxy M51 and Pixel 4a priced under Rs 30,000, Vivo might need to think differently to counter the stiff competition.

Vivo has gone with a new naming strategy with this phone, instead of its usual sequence of odd numbers. This shows the different approach it has taken with the V20. It is not directly comparable to its predecessors, instead focusing more on design. If you value looks over other aspects in a smartphone, the Vivo V20 will appeal to you. It is well designed and feels premium to the touch.

70% Vivo V20 Review: A surprisingly decent throwback
Source: Slashgear English Archive.org version
Smartphones have come a long way in just the past few years alone, rapidly changing in design as well as introducing new, sometimes outlandish features. Almost every smartphone has a gimmick these days in an attempt to stand out from the crowd and it gets harder to think of novel ways to differentiate one model from the next. That’s true even for “mid-range” tier phones like Vivo’s latest selfie-centric phone, the Vivo V20. But does it have enough to actually make it worth noticing? We dig in to find out.

If you are curious about the battery capacity, you'll be happy to know that Vivo has managed to pack in a 4,000mAh battery. While this is smaller than some of the other smartphones I've tested recently, it can still be considered average for a modern smartphone. You also get a 33W FlashCharge USB Type-C quick charger in the box.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
