So finally the Vivo has come up with its brand new V7+ ‘Full View’ display smartphone at the price of Rs 21,990.
As far as specs are concerned, the V7+ is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. It also has dual nano-sim support and runs Funtouch OS 3.2 based on Android 7.1 Nougat.
For display, it offers a 5.9-inch HD (720×1440 pixels) IPS Incell ‘FullView’ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and 2.5D curved glass.
For photography, it has a 16-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture and dual-LED flash. For front; it features a 24-megapixel front camera with a f/2.0 aperture, 1/2.78-inch sensor, and a ‘Moonlight Glow’ soft selfie light.
It also features 64GB of inbuilt storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB).
By looking at specs, the V7+ might fascinate many of you, right? Here in this article, we’ll be going to break that myth of the V7+ being spotless on paper. It will be available to purchase in Gold, Matte Black, and Rose Gold colour options.
Here are 5 Strong Reasons You Should Not Buy Vivo V7+ :
5. No Full HD Display
Believe it or not, Vivo is doing it all wrong with V7+ and it is a shame for any smartphone which is coming with an 18:9 aspect ratio without full HD display support.
And Vivo is trying to hide their deed by propagating V7+ as a ‘Full View’ display. And after the launch of LG Q6 and Micromax Canvas Infinity, the full view display is not going to be a deal maker anymore in India unless the device is offering amazing specs.
4. Inferior Processor
Though Vivo V7+ comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. And yes, 450 Soc is advanced as compared to 435 Soc Processor but looking at the price of the device Rs 21,990, Vivo should be using 625 instead which is way powerful, reliable, and justify the price range as well.
3. Poor Rear Camera
That has been the issue with all Vivo devices, they do offer top-notch selfie camera but dude rear camera is equally important and in some cases, it is extremely significant than the front one. When we were reviewing Vivo V5 Plus, we noticed the same issue; where the front camera was awesome but the rear camera didn’t match the standards of a good rear camera. So don’t expect anything from the V7+ rear camera as it will going to disappoint you.
2. Insanely Overpriced
When you read out the specs of the V7+ then you’ll realize that the device seems fine and yes it is but not at the price point of Rs 21,990. You see India is a price sensitive market and you can’t sell anything at random senseless price tag. If it is would have been launched at Rs 17K then things might be different but it is not recommended to go for 7+ at this price.
1. Senseless Selfie-Camera
Many Vivo fans might be going to call me biased here. But seriously do you really need a 24-megapixel front camera with a f/2.0 aperture, 1/2.78-inch sensor, and a ‘Moonlight Glow’ soft selfie light at the cost of a good processor.
You see it is a good processor which helps the device to sustain in a long run not a selfie-camera with bloated megapixel counts and gimmicky features.
And I am still unable to figure out why the heck Vivo thinks that we Indians are obsessed with selfie centric devices and we’ll buy any trash based on its selfie camera performance alone.
