Reviews for the Vivo V7

65% Vivo V7 Review

The Vivo V7 is yet another selfie-focused smartphone from Vivo which has the same pros and cons as the Vivo V7+ in a smaller, more compact form factor. It takes good selfies, but there are better options available.

70% Vivo V7 Review: A phone for those who live for their selfies, everyone else can look elsewhere
Source: Tech2 English
At around Rs 17,000, the V7 is a very poor choice of phone. Virtually every phone that you can buy in the same price range is cheaper, significantly more powerful and offers a higher resolution display. Better options include the Mi A1, the Moto G5s Plus and the Huawei 7x. Even the Redmi Note 4 for Rs 12,999 is a more powerful option with a comparable rear camera.

Vivo V7 Review

Vivo has pretty much captured the selfie market, Vivo V7 with a little less price than the Vivo V7+. For selfies, it’s definitely a yes, plus the design is good, compact and lightweight. Vivo V7 is on the top in the selfie phones. You may look for other phones if selfies isn’t your main requirement.

Vivo V7 Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, the Vivo V7 is decent mid-range smartphone with a FullView 18:9 display in a compact body, good selfie camera and battery life. The phone has dedicated SIM and microSD card slots and the Snapdragon 450 is good enough to power its HD+ screen, but a Snapdragon 625 / 630 and a Full HD+ screen would have been better for the phone in this price range to compete with mid-range Honor phones and the Xiaomi Mi A1.

79% Vivo V7 Review- Ups the Selfie Ante
Source: Techniqued English
Vivo V7 is priced Rs 16,990 and for the pricing, it offers a good looking compact device with good camera abilities along with music performance. Vivo V7 would have been a better deal if Vivo could have provided a Full HD+ display at this price segment. You can buy Vivo V7 from Amazon or Flipkart.

The Vivo V7 Energetic Blue looks great, can take good selfies and is very comfortable to use and carry around. The performance and battery backup are pretty good too.

The V7 is very reasonably priced, and we are sure it will succeed in the targeted markets. Vivo has a good track record of delivering with its phones, and it's quite popular among the young, too. The V7 is a well-balanced smartphone delivering on every promise, so we'd recommend you consider it, as there is a strong possibility the vivo V7 might be just what you are after.

Vivo V7 review: Just like the V7 Plus, but with a smaller display
Source: The Indian Express English
Vivo V7 has a lot to offer for the price tag of Rs 18,999. It comes with a tall display, great cameras with bokeh mode, likable design, and more importantly a battery that lasts for a day. However, the lack of dual back cameras, a Full HD display and fast charging technology might disappoint some as the features have become common in mid-range smartphones these days. For those looking for alternatives can go for Oppo F5, Honor 9i, and Moto X4 smartphones are worthy options to consider under Rs 20,000.

60% Vivo V7 review: Buy if selfies are your priority
Source: Gadget Show English
There were both good and bad aspects of Vivo V7. If you are looking for a smartphone that has good cameras, smooth performance and a lasting battery, Vivo V7 may be the right choice for you. But at a price of Rs 18,990, we expected a more original design and a better display too. Also, we don't like such heavy customizations in the phone's software, but that is very subjective, so we won't count it as a downside or an upside.

70% Vivo V7 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
In our experience with the Vivo V7, we found that the front camera does a good job of taking selfies, and the design is familiar but still more manageable compared to the V7+. Battery life is also good, despite the slight reduction in capacity. On the other hand, the competition is pretty fierce, and so a plastic body and HD screen don't really cut it anymore. Vivo’s interface is also starting to feel dated , and it's time the company overhauled it and also made it lighter.

Vivo V7 Review

The V7 is a pretty good mid-range smartphone that packs competitive specs like the 5.7-inch FullView display, Snapdragon 450 chipset, 4GB RAM, and 24MP camera. It’s in a tight spot though, considering the competition. At Php14,990, it’s aimed at customers who wanted the V7+ but are short on cash and willing to compromise. But for those who don’t, there are better offerings to consider.

Vivo V7 Review: Fighting For Mid-range Supremacy
Source: Unbox English
With their V7+ not flying off the shelves, Vivo needed another mid-range phone to compete with the offerings of their rivals in the mid-range space this coming holidays. The V7 might be a slightly downgraded version of the bigger phone, but make no mistake, it should’ve been the phone that the company came out with first before their competitors launched their own devices.

qPresumably, Vivo was trying to get these publications to write up an exclusive “Vivo V7 leaked article” in advanced of the launch. They would get additional publicity ahead of their launch, and these lucky publications get a boost to their readership.

Comment

Model: The Vivo V7 is essentially a slightly smaller Vivo V7+ with a couple of differences. It has a 5.7-inch (V7+: 5.99 inch) display that pushes an HD 720p resolution in an 18:9 display aspect ratio. Under the hood, it gets the same Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor that is mated to 4 GB of RAM. Storage wise, the V7 has a smaller 32 GB capacity, which is also expandable via microSD slot by up to 256 GB. If a person is looking for an affordable and compact alternative, here comes the Vivo V7, which comes with a lower price tag. The V7 feels much lighter in the hands and it still retains a full metal unibody exterior with the same twin stripe antenna band design. With a width of 72.8 mm, Vivo manages to cram a 5.7-inch screen onto a 5.2-inch smartphone body. It is handier as well, which makes the device easier to use for people with smaller hands one-handed. No need to fight with the phone when it comes to one-handed use. There are two color options which are Crown Gold and Matte Black. Despite being a more affordable device, Vivo retains the same camera setup on the V7. It has a 16 MP f/2.0 main camera while the front features a 24 MP f/2.0 shooter that comes with its own selfie softlight. Images taken are good enough for the price, though the phone falters a bit with low-light shots. Selfies are clear and crisp, which is not surprising given the focus of Vivo’s phones on delivering good selfies.

The V7 has an 18:9 aspect ratio display allowing the phone to have a slightly bigger panel compared to other phones with the same overall size. The side bezels are as thick as the V7+, and there is still a noticeable top and bottom bezel, though there are quite thinner than phones that do not have the unique aspect ratio. Because of the HD+ resolution, the pixel density is quite low compared to its competitors. On the bright side, the display itself looks good, with vibrant colors thanks to its IPS panel. The Vivo V7 is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, which is slightly smaller than the V7+’s 3,220 mAh capacity. Out of the box, it runs on Android 7.1 with an iOS-inspired Funtouch OS 3.2. It is not difficult to see the inspiration for the UI, especially when it comes to the interface and how a user interacts with it (swiping up from the bottom shows the setting for the phone), but users can get used to it over time. The battery life for the V7 is pretty good. The Snapdragon 450 is not a power-hungry chipset, and the phone is capable of running for the entire day with moderate use with a single charge. No fast charging is supported here though, so users might want to make sure the phone is charged before heading out. However, the smaller screen resolution and processor may help it conserve more power. The V7 is a slightly cheaper version of the already famous V7. In many ways, it competes with its own sibling.

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.
