The famous Chinese smartphone brand Vivo, recently launched their new phone, V15 Pro, in a pursuit to bring some high-end features to a mid-range device. V15 Pro is a vibrant entrant in this high-octane market and is likely to give tough competition to other phones in its price range. On paper, the phone looks power-packed and trendy. But V15 Pro goes far beyond just looks. Let’s get to it then!

Design

Vivo V15 Pro is a skillfully curated smartphone that will surely turn some heads. The phone is stylishly sleek. Although at first glance, the phone feels like glass but it is made from plastic. This gives the phone extra durability. The back is also very well designed and equipped with a “Spectrum Ripple Design” that changes colour when light reflects on it. There is the bulge on the back that encompasses not one or two but three cameras. And then there’s a fourth pop-up selfie mechanism. The phone is available in only two colours, Topaz Blue and Ruby Red. And still, Vivo manages to come out with flying colours.

Display

Vivo V15 Pro has a 6.39-inch display. It is a Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080×2340. The only shortfall is the lack of Gorilla glass. Instead, Vivo offers a regular 2.5D glass panel. This is outshined by the extremely impressive thin bezels and a notch-less display. The edges are seemingly rounded and the phone has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The screen-to-body ratio is also impressive at 91.64%.

Performance

The phone runs on a very powerful chipset, with Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 (11nm) and Octa-core CPU. The phone boasts of running on the latest version of Android 9 Pie. As far as its performance is concerned, a 6GB RAM along with a powerful processor is enough to accommodate multiple applications and functions. The phone offers 128GB of internal memory that can be further expanded. In an attempt to improve and ease the user experience, V15 Pro offers separate panels for memory and sim cards.

Camera

Almost a trademark for Vivo, the device’s cameras ace their game. The 48MP camera with PDAF support and Quad-Bayer pixel array makes for a wonderful companion in capturing your memories. V15 Pro also offers an LED flash and an 8MP ultra-wide mode. The phone’s 32 MP pop-up front camera with a Quad-Bayer pixel array steals the shows. Only time can be the real judge of its durability but the pop-up is fast and smooth at first glance.

Battery life and added features

The 3,700 mAh battery gives 12 hours of use. Vivo also offers a dual-engine fast charging 18W (9V/2A), an under-display ambient, and a fingerprint sensor. The device can hold two sims, both LTE.

Price

Vivo V15 Pro is priced at Rs.21,000 and is available on online and offline stores.

V15 Pro comes across as a feature-intensive phone, which offers great value for its price.
