VIVO V17Pro review – See everything I love about this phone in this VIVO V17Pro review.
Trendy – that’s what I am always out for.
In this age and time, it is a bit difficult to get something stylish yet functional. If you by any means get a smartphone that falls in that category, then don’t let it go.
I needed a new phone and as a person who doesn’t like trying new smartphone brands, I headed straight to Ikeja City Mall to get one in my favorite smartphone brand outlet.
Coincidentally, the vivo V17Pro ICM activation was going on and the ambience was one I could not resist. I walked straight in to see what the device was like.
The first thing that got my attention was the Dual Pop-Up Camera which is unarguably the first of its kind. Amused by this technology, I asked to check out the camera and my heart literally almost burst through my chest when the phone slipped off my hand but thankfully, I caught it; only then did I notice something exciting – the Dual Pop Up automatically retracts when in a falling motion
That’s just a tip of the iceberg, here are some other amazing features of the device.
The vivo V17Pro houses six cameras in all, on both the front and rear of the device. The front camera comes with the 32MP Camera and the 8MP Super Wide-Angle Selfie which captures at 105-degrees, helping to bring more fun and possibilities to group shots.
Also included in the front camera setup is the Selfie Softlight which makes gives pictures a premium outlook with its impressive balance of light rays.
The back camera is an AI Quad Camera consisting of a 48MP main camera, 8MP super wide angle camera, 2MP bokeh camera and 2MP macro camera. Also included in the rear camera is the “Super Night Mode” feature that enhances clarity even for late night shots.
Other interesting features of the V17Pro camera is the Pose master feature which offers cool and natural poses to match a variety of photo scenes.
My early hours of using the device was a bit confusing because I was somewhat used to the notch being on the screen, but vivo has brilliantly concealed the camera, earpiece and sensor, in order to allow users enjoy a fantastic full screen experience.
The fact that I do not have to worry about getting a memory card is a plus because the V17Pro is supported by Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE processor with 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM and a 4100Mah battery.
Honestly, I’d have preferred the device came in multiple colors, rather than just Satin black and silk white – guess that’s why it is called a mobile phone and not a dress. Also, I feel the screen of the device is rather too big to handle and could easily fall off if care is not taken.
Generally, I do not regret having this device and with all these features and more that I am getting to enjoy, vivo is definitely my best smartphone brand at the moment and creatively fusing the best elements of tech and style with the V17Pro, I can only imagine what would come next from vivo.
