2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Shiny, premium design - the back panel features a dual-tone gradient texture, which shifts shade depending on the angle light hits it
  • The front looks similar to the V20, with its narrow bezels and a small dew-drop notch
  • The smartphone is thin and the weight is easily manageable - and the curved sides make the phone comfortable to hold and carry around
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner as well as face recognition is quick to unlock the Vivo V20 SE
  • The display is a gorgeous 6.44-inch AMOLED FHD+ panel which promises vibrant and life-like colours, similar to the Vivo V20 - the display has good viewing angles and gets bright enough when outdoors
  • The Vivo V20 SE comes with Android 10 out of the box with Vivo's new Funtouch OS 11 and not Android 11 like on the elder sibling, but Vivo has promised the update to 11 at the time of launch, - this new skin by Vivo brings several bells and whistles, and a much cleaner, simpler interface - there's an improved dark mode and ton of customisation option
  • Good triple rear camera setup - a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera that is also capable of macro photography, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the Vivo V20 SE manage decent shots with good details on objects even at a distance - while shooting outdoors in bright conditions, the V20 SE is quick to enable HDR
  • The ultra-wide-angle camera offers a wider field of view but at the cost of details - the images aren't as sharp as the primary camera, but they fit a lot more scene into the picture - Close-ups with this camera turn out well, and the phone manages to capture sharp images, this is much better than the dedicated low-resolution sensors
  • Portrait shots with steady subjects turn out well, with good edge detection
  • The V20 SE manage good selfies in daylight as well as low light - you can take portrait shots using the selfie camera, and the V20 SE blurs out the background automatically
  • Battery life on the V20 SE is good from the 4100 mAh battery, and the phone goes on for a day and a half on a single charge
  • Charging is also quick with the 33W charger bundled in the box - the device gets to about 96 per cent in an hour
  • The V20 SE is a good phone that has a few things going for it - the device offers a lightweight design and decent cameras for the price
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The glossy finish at the back is prone to fingerprints and smudges
  • The panel lacks support for fast refresh rate
  • Average performance from the Snapdragon 665 - this isn't the most powerful chipset for the price, it is available on phones at half the price, the competitors like the Poco X3 offer much better performance for this segment
  • Low-light camera performance is average overall - photos appear smooth and objects at a distance have a watercolour-like effect - enabling Night Mode results in slightly brighter images, but nothing game-changing
  • On the other hand, if you are looking for a well-rounded smartphone, the V20 SE isn't your best bet - it sports a weaker processor, which is evident when playing heavy games, in this case, the Realme 7 Pro and the Poco X3 would be suitable alternatives
