The Vivo V7 is the “mini” version of the Vivo V7+, which was debuted back in September. The Vivo V7 is quite similar to its predecessor, save for a few cuts here and there, and it’s priced at roughly Rs. 30,000.
While we did say the Vivo V7 was a “mini” version of the Vivo V7+ it’s still a fairly big handset with a screen size of 5.7-inch. But thanks to the FullView setup of the screen, the device is relatively small for its screen stature. The Vivo V7 is not just made of one material like plastic or metal but it’s a combination of both of those and glass; allowing it to weigh in at 139g only, lighter than its most of its competition. It’s still just a tad but bigger than the Vivo V7+, but only by 0.2mm so the Vivo V7 is still a thin enough for you to be aesthetically pleased and thick enough to not fall out of your hands.
Above the screen we have the standard sensors, the selfie camera and an LED notification light. On the back of the phone we have the main camera and LED flash along with the rear mounted fingerprint sensor.
The screen on the Vivo V7 is a 5.7-inch LCD IPS display. That means the color representation on the phone will be slightly colder as compared to its AMOLED counterparts. Being a cheaper phone, one of the compromises are found in the resolution of the display, which is 1440*720. The pixel density equates to 286ppi, which is kind of subpar in this day and age where even entry level phones have 300+ppi. It is however a “FullView” display, meaning the aspect ratio is 18:9. This allows the Vivo V7 to have a big screen but a relatively small body.
The cameras of the Vivo V7 are its main attractions. The main camera on the back is a 16MP shooter with an f/2.0 aperture and phase detection auto focus. It can record videos up to 1080p at 30fps. The front camera is the real star of the show. With a larger than life megapixel senor, the 24MP camera comes with a slew of features. The selfie camera has an f/2.0 aperture as well, can shoot in modes such as panorama, face beauty, HDR, ultra-HD, portrait more and a ton of others. The LED light on the front helps to take selfies in low light conditions.
The hardware part of the Vivo V7 is the underwhelming bit, but that’s to be expected of a midrange handset. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 450, which is Snapdragon’s latest offering in the 400 series lineup. There’s also 4GB of RAM on board, but only 32gigs of storage. You can get 64GB of it with the Vivo V7+. The battery in the Vivo V7 is a 3000mAh cell, and given the screen resolution and processor, you could probably pump out close to 2 days on a single charge. The Vivo V7 comes with Android 7.1 Nougat right out of the box.
