Reviews for the Vivo V7+

Vivo V7 Plus Review - FullView Display with 24MP Selfie Camera
Source: Tech Nave English
The Vivo V7 Plus comes with an RRP (recommended retail price) of RM1499 in Malaysia. It may be somewhat more expensive than other similar smartphones, but the 24MP camera selfie image quality is still slightly clearer than the rest on the market. However, in contrast, the rear camera isn't nearly as good as the front camera. The FullView display is great but still required more optimization from third-party apps. Performance is slightly lower than the standard for the price, but for casual mobile gamers it is still acceptable.

Selling for around S$550 in Singapore and other markets (which converts to about $400, £300 or AU$525) the Vivo V7+ isn't the best phone out there, but its selfie prowess may find it an audience.

Vivo V7+ Review
Source: Yugatech English
The V7+ certainly created a buzz during its announcement and release last month. And that buzz is somewhat warranted as the phone does provide its users with a big screen, great battery life, respectable speakers, and useful features. Although it would’ve been nice if Vivo upped the screen quality as having such low ppi on a screen this big has consequences such as loss of quality and pixelation. The front camera, though great at taking selfies, also has an annoying problem with strong light sources and performs poorly in low-light situations.

Vivo V7 plus is a top notch device with all the premium features in the very affordable price range. Personally, I have liked this device very much because it is fulfilling all the requirements of a normal user in very economical price. It has a 24MP selfie camera which is perfect for camera lovers and the body shape of this smartphone is very slim and sleek. Those customers who don’t want to spend a big amount of money yet they want a good phone, should consider Vivo V7 plus before buying another device.

67% Vivo V7 Plus Review

While we personally believe that smartphones need to be a complete package, Vivo is still pursuing its motto “camera and music” quite single mindedly. The new Vivo V7+ has a good front facing camera and great audio quality, but considering its price, the company could have done a much better job with the performance and battery life.

74% Vivo V7 Plus review: A great selfie smartphone that's overshadowed by its predecessor
Source: Tech2 English
I was surprised to find myself warming to the Vivo V7 Plus. I normally shun heavily-themed Android devices with low-end chips. However, Vivo’s customisations are useful and add value. The Snapdragon 450, a yet untested platform, certainly proved more capable than I expected.

71% Vivo V7+ Review: Big Selfies, Small Bezels, Big Price
Source: Tech PP English
Selfie phones seem to be in a hurry to come in a flurry. So much so that certain phone makers have shifted their focus heavily on the front cameras of their phones, with every iteration they make. Leading the pack, at least in India, is Vivo, and the V7 Plus is their latest offering, succeeding last year’s V5 Plus (don’t ask us where did the 6 Plus go! We don’t know it either). We gave you our first impressions in the first cut article a while ago, and we were sweetly surprised on how smooth it was in our initial usage – ah and that front camera of course. And now, having done a detailed review, we answer many of the questions we got all this while – does the snappy performance hold up? Is the build quality strong enough? How is the selfie camera compared to other selfie-centric phones? How is the gaming experience? etc. Read on for the answers in this detailed Vivo V7+ Review.

Vivo V7+ Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, the Vivo V7+ is decent smartphone with a large FullView 18:9 display in a compact body and a pretty good selfie camera. The phone has dedicated SIM and microSD card slots, which is a good move. Snapdragon 450 is enough to power the phone with a HD+ screen, but the company should have gone for a better chip like the Snapdragon 625 and a Full HD+ screen to justify the price tag of Rs. 21,990.

70% Vivo V7+ Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Vivo is introducing some notable new features with its smartphones and the V7+ is just the first of many such models to come. The shift to the new 18:9 aspect display is welcome, and we like the fact that the company has finally moved to Android Nougat. The front camera is does a good job in most lighting conditions. However, it still feels quite expensive considering it’s plastic body, low-resolution screen and budget-class processor.

80% Vivo V7+ review – SD 450 powered, very good handset but very pricey
Source: Gogi.in English
Vivo V7+ is a selfie centric smartphone that comes with a much better selfie camera. Overall a very good handset but the price is too high. Vivo brand mostly does well in offline markets. Now you can get a better selfie camera smartphone for under Rs. 15,000 (the Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie dual).

Comment

Model: The Vivo V7+ is the successor to the company's V5 Plus flagship phone. It is also designed for selfie enthusiasts. Not only does it boast of the highest resolution front camera on a smartphone it also has a wide, 18:9 aspect ratio display with narrow bezels. This is a feature that is now finding the top spot on consumer wish lists. Thanks to the narrow bezels and wide aspect ratio, the Vivo V7+ has a 6-inch display in the dimensions of a 5.5-inch device, which Vivo calls FullView display. It is excellent for watching videos, playing games as well as for social media. However, the resolution is 1440 x 720 pixels, which gives a pixel density of just 269 ppi (pixels per inch). In comparison, the 5.5-full HD display on the Redmi Note 4 has a pixel density of 401 ppi. This means that in a head-to-head comparison, the V7+ display is not as sharp. Vivo phones normally prioritize selfie cameras over the rear shooter. The front camera is the other highlight of the V7+. It has a 24 MP wide-angle camera with f/2.0 aperture and front LED flash. It is easily one of the best selfie cameras seen on a smartphone. The photos are bright with good details and natural colors. Even in low light, the camera picks up enough light to take good photos without using the front flash.

The rear 16MP camera has an aperture of f/2.0 also and delivers detailed photos with rich color. Vivo has added a Live Photo option, quite like the iPhone: it records a few seconds of video with the image and user can play it with a 'tap and hold'. This makes for some very interesting photos. However, the video recording is restricted to Full HD resolution. From the mid-tier Snapdragon 625 processor of its predecessor, the new phone has a Snapdragon 450 now. The shift from a Snapdragon 600-series to a 400-series processor is shocking at first, but it is not a downgrade. The new Snapdragon 450 is pretty much based on the Snapdragon 625. Both have the same 14 nm technology for longer battery life and a newer Adreno 506 GPU for better gaming performance. Multitasking is handled by the 4 GB memory, and users get an internal storage of 64 GB for apps, pictures, and more. Some of the other highlight features on the Vivo V7+ include the slick unibody design (7.7 mm slim, 160 g weight), fast and an accurate fingerprint scanner, a dedicated microSD slot for storage expansion along with loud and clear audio output. Vivo continues to give its devices a built-in Hi-Fi chip for excellent audio quality with lossless music files. With a slightly bigger body than its predecessor, the V7+ has a somewhat larger battery at 3,225 mAh over the previous 3,160 mAh. As a whole, the V7+ is a good buy for a typical mid-range user. However, the competition in this price range is stiff and there are other manufacturers that can offer more for the asking price.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

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.
