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

  • The design feels fresh and vibrant - phone's sleek profile is eye-catching, with a matte back glass, it is one of the nicest looking phones for the price
  • The phone looks quite flawless from the back, it features a rather flashy back cover
  • The Vivo V20 Pro is one of the lightest around in this price segment, and at 7.38mm in thickness, it is surprisingly slim
  • The power button has a texture to give it a more distinguished feeling
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as face recognition, are quick to unlock the V20
  • Because of its slim profile, the Vivo V20 Pro is a bit slippery
  • The front looks a bit dated with a wide notch, which even cheaper phones have abandoned

Display

  • The display is a gorgeous 6.44-inch AMOLED FHD+ panel which promises vibrant and life-like colours - the contrast is impressive and it also supports HDR10 for high-quality video playback
  • It gets bright enough for using the device even under harsh sunlight
  • Though, it isn't a high-refresh-rate panel

Software

  • The Vivo V20 Pro comes with Android 11 out of the box, with Vivo's new Funtouch OS 11 - this new skin by Vivo brings several bells and whistles, and a much cleaner, simpler interface - there's an improved dark mode and tons of customisation options

Performance

  • Very Good performance from the Snapdragon 765G SoC - it is a capable chip that can handle everything you throw at it - gaming is no issue, it takes care of casual titles as well heavy 3D games like COD with ease

Camera

  • Good triple cameras for the price - a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP mono camera
  • Photos shot in bright sunny conditions turned out well - images clicked using the device generally come out with life-like colours and packing good detail
  • The Ultra-wide camera adds fun new perspectives, it can take dramatic super-wide-angle photos with lesser details than the main camera - besides, it can also take Macro shots, which come out with good detail, and you end up with a higher resolution image compared to what most dedicated macro cameras produce
  • Portraits have good edge detection and you do get the option to set the intensity of the blur effect - beautification is enabled by default which smoothens skin textures
  • Low-light camera performance is good, photos have little noise and details in brighter areas are decent - enabling Night mode improves the level of detail
  • The 44MP selfie camera is very good at what it does - daylight selfies are sharp with accurate colours and good details, there's also an Eye Autofocus option that keeps the subject in sharp focus - portrait selfies are possible and you can set the level of blur before taking a shot
  • The Vivo V20 Pro has an additional 8MP ultra-wide camera at the front for all your group photos - it manages to capture a lot wider view of the scene
  • Video recording in daylight is good, video recording tops out at 4K for the primary as well as the selfie shooter - footage shot in 4K, as well as 1080p, is stabilised (though, video shot in low light has a shimmer effect at both resolutions, which isn't good)
  • Overall, cameras are one of the highlights of the phone and they can take on any other capable camera phone at this price

Audio

  • No 3.5mm headphone jack

Battery

  • Good battery life from the 4000 mAh battery - it can easily manage to keep the phone going on for around a day on moderate-heavy use
  • Charging is quick with the supplied 33W FlashCharge charger - it takes the V20 to 98 percent in an hour

Verdict

  • The V20 Pro is all about: selfies, looks, and raw performance - it adds valuable upgrades over the V20 and manages to provide an excellent value for money
