Chinese smartphone maker Vivo launched the V7+ in India on 7th September. It is a selfie centric smartphone with a massive 24MP front facing camera. The front facing camera is also assisted with Vivo’s moonlight camera technology which the company claims to help achieve better selfies in low light. Though this smartphone target audience is selfie loving consumers, for the price of Rs.21,990 we are not happy with some of its offering. So here are some of the Vivo V7 Plus Cons according to us.
Vivo V7 Plus Cons- Top 5 unexciting features
These Vivo V7+ Cons are purely based on the specification sheet.
Entry level processor on a higher mid-range smartphone
Vivo V7+ is the first phone to launch with Snapdragon 450 in India. It is a good SoC but when comparing with Snapdragon 625, it is slightly under powered. When there are plenty of smartphones available with Snapdragon 625 for a lesser price, it is disappointing to see this SoC on a phone which is priced at Rs.21,990.
720P HD display screen
Apart from the selfie camera, a much-talked feature of Vivo V7 Plus is its bezel less display. Though it is not 100% bezel less display, narrow bezels in the top and bottom is a good move. However, one thing which we are disappointed with the display is its screen resolution. It has a large 5.99-inch display screen with 1440 x 720 pixels resolution and approximate 269 ppi pixel density. Nowadays there are smartphones which are priced less than 10k and features full HD screen. For the price and for such a large display size, we expected at least full HD display panel.
No USB-C port and No Fast charging
Vivo V7+ comes with micro USB port for charging and data transfer. USB-C is the latest standard. This device comes with a normal charger out of the box. We would have liked if it had a fast charger.
No Dual camera setup
Being a camera centric phone, we would have liked if it had a dual camera setup. The smartphones such as Moto G5s Plus, Mi A1 etc offer this at the much more attractive price range.
Value for money
Apart from selfie camera, when we compare other features and price, we felt it is slightly over priced.
These are some of the Vivo V7 Plus Cons or the features which we didn’t like on the smartphone based on the spec sheet. We might be wrong. That we can conclude once we do the in-depth review of the device. What is your thought on the device? Do share in the comment section below.
