Vivo V7+: Sleek, stylish workhorse of a phone

THE selfie game needs more challengers for this emerging phone brand. 

Launching the world’s first 24MP front camera with its newest flagship V7+, Vivo has certainly proven status as one of the top tier smartphone companies right now.

The top five global smartphone brand released the stylish, sleek, yet workhorse of a phone Wednesday at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in Pasay, with partners, dealers, celebrities, and members of the media getting a sneak peek of the revolutionary 18:9, 5.99” all-screen Full View display smartphone.

Besides its clearer selfie front cam with Special Face Beauty 7.0 and Portrait Mode mimicking DSLR-like shots as well as its 84.4% screen-to-body ratio, the  V7 Plus also features Vivo’s first try on face detection technology which will help you access the phone through biometric recognition instantly. 

This latest offering from Vivo also has Game Mode which prevents incoming calls and messages from interrupting your gaming, backed up by 4GB of RAM and Qualcomm Octacore Snapdragon 450 SoC processors for hours on end of gaming, thanks to its 3225mAh battery capacity. 

The 16MP main shooter, 64GB flagship phone running on Funtouch OS 3.2 based on Android’s Nougat 7.1, significantly still doesn’t venture into the dual camera scene unlike flagship models from other brands, though the trade-off is quite understandable especially if it’s priced handsomely at just P17,990!

The phone which will come in champagne gold and matte black is expandable to 256GB of external memory, though the fingerprint scanner at the back is just for added security.This phone is also for music buffs looking for a smartphone that can deliver clear and crisp sound thanks to its fully upgraded AK4376A Hi-Fi audio chipset.
