2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 13+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Beautiful, sleek design with a silver finish that switches colours as per angled light
  • The front is sharp and trendy with a pill-shaped punch-hole on the top-right that has the two front-facing cameras
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner is quick

Display

  • Vivid, crisp 6.44-inch AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution - the display looks punchy and you can tweak the display colour mode as well as the colour temperature
  • Vivo claims the peak brightness of 1200 nits, which makes it a comfortable screen to look at even in direct sunlight

Software

  • The Software continues to be a relatively weak point for Vivo, with a cluttered Funtouch UI - there's also plenty of bloatware (though it is quite feature-packed)

Performance

  • Decent performance from the Snapdragon 712 SOC - casual and day-to-day applications run fine without any issues
  • However, this processor is commonly found in smartphones priced at around Rs. 15, 000 and phones such as the Realme X2 Pro feel faster because of the better processor

Camera

  • Good quad-camera setup - a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, the primary camera manages good shots with ample detail, objects at a distance are visible on zooming in
  • The ultra-wide-angle gives a fun, wider perspective to images (though, the details aren't as good as the primary camera)
  • The portrait mode works well and it lets you select the level of blur before taking a shot - edge detection is good in well-lit conditions
  • In low light, the phone takes decent photos - the night mode makes the scene brighter and objects in the shadows more recognisable (though, it's a little slow and forces you to hold the camera still)
  • The 32MP selfie camera is capable of delivering some very good selfies that are sharp and detailed - There is also an 8MP ultra-wide sensor that lets you take wide selfies and fit more subjects or people into one shot
  • The macro camera is just average and the output is restricted to 2-megapixels only

Battery

  • Very good battery life with the 4500 mAh battery - it can manage about a day and a half worth of use out of the battery in one charging cycle
  • Charging is quick, and the phone manages to charge to 83 per cent in an hour

Verdict

  • The Vivo V19 is a good camera phone which nails the basics with a trendy design, crisp AMOLED display and very good battery with fast charging
  • However, this is not the best all-rounder and the choice of processor for this price is a bit disappointing, when phones like the Realme X2 Pro and Redmi K20 Pro offer very good performance for the price and are better all-round phones

  1. The Vivo V19 does pack in good cameras, a big battery and the display is vivid... but doesn't have a very powerful processor, and that might be the deal-breaker for potential buyers

  2. The Vivo V19 is a pretty good upgrade to the Vivo V17 with a  great display, battery life and a very good set of cameras... though power-user or gamers should check out the alternatives
