Vivo V7 Review Falls Short on Performance

January 15, 2023 0 Comments

The Vivo V7 is another Selfie-oriented Vivo Smartphone that has the same advantages and disadvantages as the Vivo V7+ in a smaller and more compact format. It takes good Selfies, but there are better options.


Vivo Phones are usually focused on the Selfie and the Vivo V7 does not differ. As you may have deduced from the naming scheme, the V7 is the smaller version of the V7+ that we have already looked at. The Smartphone has approximately the same specifications, but at a lower price. Technically, it should be a better deal, right? In addition to your affinity for Selfies, it depends on many aspects. On Paper, the Vivo V7 seems to be a good enough device and seems to tick all the correct boxes. The phone is powered by an Octa-Core SoC, has 4 GB of RAM, has 32 GB of storage, even has an 18:9 aspect ratio and offers basically all the standard hardware you’ll find on any other Smartphone these days. However, the biggest difference that this phone has and could appreciate in the coming times is its small size (Pocketable), but is it enough? We have been using the phone for some time and here is our detailed review of what it offers.

Build and design

The phone has a bezel-less 5.7-inch screen, which makes it relatively as large as a standard 5.2-or 5.3-inch Smartphone. The smaller size is not only more ergonomic to use in one hand, but also more beautiful (or Cute). Vivo basically kept the design almost identical to the V7+. The phone has a plastic back that, on paper, seems to be inferior to most competitors that offer a metal Unibody construction. That is, the beveled edges and false antenna lines at the top and bottom of the phone give it a first-class appearance. If you don’t drop the phone, you won’t really find the difference.

Display and user interface

The larger 18: 9 screen also plays an important role in the appearance of the phone and plays its role well. The fact is that it is a more beautiful device than more performance-oriented devices in the same price range. However, practicality and value for money are two essential cornerstones of the budget-driven market, and that’s where the Vivo V7 lacks.

You get a 5.7-inch screen on this phone with HD + resolution (1440 x 720P), which is completely outrageous considering the price of the device. Therefore, the display is not as sharp as some of its competitors. That is, if you are not checked by the slightest sharpness of the screen, you will not find that the screen as such is not found. Like an LCD screen, it has good color fidelity and the viewing angles are good.

However, at Digit, we agree that any screen larger than 5.5 inches should have at least 1080p resolution. The touch response is also satisfactory, but we have seen a delay in animations, which, in my opinion, is a disadvantage of using a cumbersome user interface.

The user interface we are talking about is FunTouch OS 3.2, which is found on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. First of all, no phone manufacturer should be excused (now) with an older operating system, and Vivo should strive to bring Android Oreo to its smartphone portfolio by 2017 at the recent. We say that it is quite heavy because it still uses 2 GB or more of RAM, even after removing recently opened applications.

As for the interface, It’s Business as usual. FunTouch OS 3.2 remains a very good iOS design scam. Vivo tried to make the UI design as identical as possible to iOS. Directly from The iconography to the quick switch menu, which is displayed by a swipe from below. Even additional settings for native applications can be found in the main settings menu. Nevertheless, everything remains functional and easy to use once you have crossed the easy learning curve.
