2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 8 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Stylish, slick, premium looks (looks more expensive than it is), good build quality
  • The rear camera module has a copper accent on the edges, which further adds to the premium-ness
  • The front is modern with a 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS display with a dewdrop notch, and minimal bezels
  • Both the fingerprint scanner, and face unlock are quick
  • Somewhat bulky

Display

  • The IPS display is crisp, and boasts good legibility and viewing angles

Software

  • Vivo's Funtouch UI is one of the heavier Android skins around, and packs plenty of bloatware - which means that if you like your phones simple and fuss-free, it's not the best option around

Performance

  • Very good performance for the price category with a powerful Snapdragon 675 at the core - it delivers smooth performance not just in daily use, but high-end games like PUBG

Camera

  • Decent triple-camera setup at the back: 16-megapixel primary lens + 8-super-wide-angle lens + 2-megapixel super macro lens - in good lighting conditions, the images shot offer good exposure as well as good color production
  • Fast focus speed
  • Good portrait mode - blurs the background quite well and gives you good bokeh effect
  • Good 16-megapixel front facing camera - works well in both day-light and low-light conditions, and has a good portrait mode too
  • Overall, the camera setup on the U20 is pretty decent for the price bracket (but not the best)
  • The super-wide angle camera, and the macro camera, while offering some interesting framing options, are not that good in terms of image quality
  • Low light camera performance from the rear camera setup is average (the Night mode does help a bit though)

Connectivity

  • Uses the old microUSB port, instead of the modern USB-C standard

Battery

  • Excellent battery life with a large 5000mAh battery - you should get a comfortable 2 days of use
  • Fast charging support (18W) - you can recharge your phone's battery in about two-and-half hours

Verdict

  • If you value performance, battery and design in your phone, the the U20 is another excellent option from Vivo, after its popular predecessor, the U10 - the only area where it lags a little behind the competition from Xiaomi and Realme is the cameras

  1. If you are looking for a device primarily for gaming then the Vivo U20 should be pretty high on your shortlist...that said, the U20 isn't a perfect all-rounder; the cameras did leave us wanting

  2. If you need a smartphone that does not leave you alone before your day is over even after heavy gaming or hours of video streaming, then Vivo U20 will be the best option for you....But if you love photography and need a good camera smartphone then you sho

  4. Makes for a worthy choice in isolation, but its sheen starts to fade a little when it's put in direct comparison with the likes of the Redmi Note 8 and Realme 5 -- both of which offer just a little more than the Vivo U20
