Vivo launched its premium smartphone Vivo V23 5G in the Indian market a few weeks ago. The company is offering many great features in this phone coming in the segment of 30 to 40 thousand rupees. Vivo gave us a chance to review its latest product. The team of Live Hindustan has been using Vivo V23 5G for the past one month. In these days, we learned a lot about this phone and used it in every way. Now we have brought you the detail review of this phone. So let’s know what special Vivo is offering in this phone and will this phone be able to leave behind other devices in this segment?
Meticulously worked on the design,
Vivo is one of those smartphone makers, which works very closely on the design of the devices. Same is the case with Vivo V23 5G. As soon as you open the retail box of Vivo V23, you will go crazy about its looks. Looking at the phone, it seems that the company has prepared it with great love. The matte finish of its back panel is quite premium. The camera bump has been given on the top left side of the rear panel of the phone, which has three cameras. The camera bump protrudes from the main body. However, giving the back cover of the phone to the company in the retail box solves this problem. We got the Stardust Black color variant of this phone.
The power and volume rocker buttons are given on the right panel,
there is also a matte finish on the side panel of the phone. On the right side panel, you will get to see the power and volume rocker buttons. The boxy design of the phone seems largely inspired by the latest iPhones. Phone users will like it a lot because it is quite comfortable to hold it in hands. Talking about the front look of the phone, it is also very good. Dual selfie camera is given in the top center of the display. The screen of the phone is 6.44 inches. It is an AMOLED display, which comes with HDR10+ certification and a refresh rate of 90Hz. These combinations make the display of the phone quite spectacular.
The refresh rate of 90Hz works to improve the gaming and browsing experience. However, the adaptive brightness feature given in the phone sometimes swings up and down. If the user wants, the display can also be put in dark mode for the comfort of the eyes. Well, at this price point, Vivo should have offered a display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Well here it can be assumed that the company has to do some cost cutting at some places to offer many premium features in this phone.
RAM, Storage and Processor
The company had sent a variant of this phone to us with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB internal storage. 12 GB RAM makes the phone very smooth. The special thing is that in this phone you also get the feature of 4 GB virtual RAM. Talking about the processor, the Dimensity 920 chipset has been given in it, which performs well. It would have been better if the company had offered Dimensity 1200 or Snapdragon 870 in it. The phone performed well even during heavy games like BGMI. However, it does get a bit hot at higher frame rates.
Camera is a great
phone’s camera, it has the power to give a tough competition to the camera of any phone coming in this segment. You can’t live without appreciating it. A 64-megapixel triple camera setup has been given in the rear of the phone. All the three cameras are in a vertical line and the LED flash is given on the side. The other two cameras found in the rear of the phone have an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle and a 2-megapixel macro shooter. The phone’s 64-megapixel primary camera gives great image output in indoor as well as outdoor. The experience of night camera photography from the phone was also amazing. The colors in the photos taken with the camera were very clear and sharp. Also, its Auto HDR mode also plays its job well.
The ultra-wide angle camera of the phone complements the main camera. With this phone you can take many great ultra-wide angle shots. Its quality cannot be called very good, but it is not bad either and gives a tough competition to many devices in the segment. If we talk about the macro camera of the phone, then it also performs well and with this you can fulfill your macro photography hobby easily and better.
Now let’s come to the selfie camera found in the phone. In this phone you will get two front cameras with dual LED flash. It has an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera along with a 50-megapixel primary camera. There is no doubt that you are going to like the selfie camera of the phone very much. Selfies taken with this look quite clear. The colors also look absolutely original in these and the sharpness is also optimum. The company is also offering Eye-Tracking auto-focus feature in the phone, which is going to be very much liked by vloggers. We also liked the 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle output on the front.
Battery may seem low
, this Vivo phone comes with a 4200mAh battery. It doesn’t go on all day. To make up for the lack of low mAh battery, the company is offering 44W charging support with the phone, which charges the phone in minutes. It would have been better if the company had offered at least 5000mAh battery in this. Due to low battery, gaming on this phone or users who binge watch their favorite show may have some problems. However, overall this battery can be comfortably placed in the above average category.
Buy or not?
If Vivo V23 5G fits in your budget, then you can feel free to buy this phone. It has a great combination of great camera, premium design and performance. If we talk about the rating, then Live Hindustan gives this phone 4 out of 5 stars.
