2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Very good, virtually edge-to-edge 18:9 display, keeping in line with the biggest trend of 2017 - it is also bright and responsive to touch - and provides a great experience when it comes to reading or watching videos
  • It's also extremely sleek and that makes it easy to grip
  • The phone scores well both on aesthetics and ergonomics - it's also easier to handle than the V7+
  • Dedicated Dual SIM and MicroSD card slots
  • Pretty decent facial unlock system (along with the standard fingerprint sensor) - works well in all but poor lighting conditions
  • Funtouch UI over Android looks pretty decent (and similar to iOS) and the bloatware is minimal
  • Decent, solid day-to-day performance backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC with 4GB of RAM
  • Good front camera, with a well-implemented portrait mode - takes good selfies in all kinds of conditions
  • Decent rear camera - does a good job in daylight conditions (though not so much in low light), and with portrait mode
  • Good battery life - will comfortably last the day
  • Premium, stylish, sleek design
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back is quick and can also be used to click images
  • Beautiful, large, immersive Full View Display (Infinity Display), that is great for watching videos
  • Vivo's FunTouch UI is decent, and largely inspired from iOS
  • Seamless performance in day-to-day use, and multitasking and gaming are managed well too
  • The phone also remains cool, even when pushed
  • Comes with dedicated two SIM card slots and a micro SD-Card slot as well (unlike the hybrid approach taken by some of the competition)
  • Excellent selfie camera with a portrait bokeh effect available for your selfies - one of the best selfie cameras on any phone
  • Rear camera is decent too (though not great) and takes decent images in daylight, producing pleasing colors
  • Decent 1080p videos - come out with good contrast and colors
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the day with moderate use
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Plastic body
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Charging speed is decent but could have been better - will take about an hour to go from 0 to 50%
  • Plastic body
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Although daily performance is good, the phone is not meant for power users - there are better performing phones available in this price bracket
  • Rear camera performance in low light is average
  • No fast charging support
