Apple’s iPhone X came up with a bunch of talk-of-the-town features, and it’s not surprising that budget brands are trying to pack some of those into their devices. If you were impressed with the display notch of iPhone X, welcome the V9, which is the latest launch from the brand. Vivo V9 64GB is priced at 23k, but how well does it work on all aspects? Here are some facts.
Solid hardware, credible performance
With Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor and 4 GB RAM, Vivo V9 is a stunning performer. We will come to the display later, but this is a device that will handle your regular requirements effortlessly. It features 64 GB of onboard memory, which is expandable up to 256 GB via a microSD. The 3260mAh battery of the phone is non-removable and pretty good for a day’s use. It gets Android 8.1 out of the box and uses Vivo’s Funtouch OS 4.0 UI.
By now, you probably know that V9 is the first phone in India to get the notch feature, but yes, it also packs a 6.3-inch FHD+ display, which feels and looks premium. The screen-to-body ratio is around 90%, which means the entire front panel is covered by the display, and yes, V9 is also a light device, weighing just 150 grams.
Assured camera performance
With a 24MP front shooter, V9 is easily the most amazing selfie phone at this price, and it has a dual camera setup on the rear. Apart from the 16MP shooter, you get a 5MP secondary camera. We tried using the device in low light, and the pictures were amazing. In short, it can effectively compete with Oppo F7 in that department.
If you want a decent device with 19:9 aspect ratio for display and credible camera performance, Vivo V9 does pack a punch. For a lower price, you can go for Honor 9 Lite 64GB or other options. Vivo V9 doesn’t have the best hardware to be fair, but it doesn’t lag in performance. The price of 23k might seem on the higher side for some buyers, but you can always check online to get discounts and offers. Vivo V9 is meant for selfie-lovers and it brings the trend of notch into the mid-segment, which is a big plus.
