Vivo V9 review: An iPhone X clone with AI selfies

Image result for vivo v9
Vivo can not be popular or famous outside of China, but if there are any indications recently with an under-display fingerprint sensor and Apex concept phone, then it is a worthwhile company. Vivo is advertising its latest smartphone, VivoV9 with the perfect shot and phone with the correct view, due to its 24-megapixel front-facing selfie camera and large, almost bezel-less display.

Modern as V9's design, it uses the old MicroSub Port instead of USB Type-C, which seems like a very strange decision for a phone to maintain current smartphone trends. Flanking the MicroSB port is a single speaker, which provides enough audio in terms of emphasis and clarity but it is the best speaker experience. On another positive note, VivoV9 includes a 3.5 mm headphone jack, which is becoming increasingly scarce.


Whether we like it or not, it seems that there is a foothold to stay here. It is not far away from how vivo v9 performance looks so magnificent. The screen has a 6.3-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 2,280 x 1080 and an aspect ratio of 19: 9. The 19: 9 aspect ratio means that the screen is slightly longer than the one used to look at, but this is not a significant difference apart from the extra pixels. There is a complete pleasure to use the screen - being surrounded by thin bezels allows it to actually become the center of attention. It looks incredible with vibrant colors, great viewing angles, and sharpness (even if it is 1080p).

While the bottom line in the display is cut, it is not negatively affected how the screen app displays, nor does this notification change any conversation with the shadow. Applications on VivoV9 are usually visible on any other Android smartphone, however, the notification bar, whatever app is open, matches the color of the app which is open to create the illusion of the app running below it. is.

Videos and games have not played well with the new aspect ratio being seen on our smartphones, and V9 brings a significant amount of column columns. Like Samsung and LG, Vivo has baked the software to adjust the aspect ratio of third-party apps that do not basically fill the entire display. This means that you can get a fullscreen experience with video and games, though the trick crushes some material.

VivoV9 is considered Vivo's flagship smartphone, but Chashma puts this phone in square range in the Midland range. Within Q9, Qualcomm has Snapdragon 626 processor and 4 GB RAM. For storage, the V964 comes with GB internal storage and supports up to 256 GB of microSD extension. This is not the most exciting space sheet, but should be powerful enough for most tasks.

 In its week of use, the phone was fast and responsive with normal tasks like navigating through UI and launching the application. 4 GB RAM for a smooth multitasking experience was considerable. Playing with smooth frame rate also ran well. Vivo V9 is rarely slow or slow.

Vivo V9's battery is a respectable 3,260 mAh cell, though my use was completely on Wi-Fi. I was unable to get the carrier data despite multiple SIM cards, rebooting the device and testing the APN settings again. It is being said that VivoV9 found me comfortably all day with watching the video and with huge amounts of gaming.

 I will imagine, the V9 should still perform well on LTE data because the battery is big enough and Snapdragon 626 is very battery efficient.

 The camera:

Vivo has equipped VP with a 24 MP Front Front camera which will provide you the highest resolution selfie on any smartphone. Front-facing camera is supported by AI-Power Beauty mode, which provides you the best possible health for detecting your age, sex and skin tone and texture. It looks great on paper but AI beauty Salfi did not make much difference in quality and how AI Selfi softened my face and made the details less important. Generally, the quality of the front camera is very good. It provides very fastness, expansion, and natural skin tones.

The rear primary camera is 16 MPF / 2.0 lenses, supported by a 5 MP depth sensor for portrait-style photos. Unlike the portrait mode found on other smartphones, the V9 camera lets you simulate aperture from f / 0.95 to f / 16 and adjusts the focus point after the fact. This means that you never get stuck with the initial results and the images can be tweaked to form a different form. Portrait mode is also available on the front camera, but due to lack of depth sensor the background does not allow any adjustment in the mist.

16 MP camera performs well with crisp detail, sharpness and adequate color reproduction in the best-published situations. The camera struggles to find the proper exposure in high contrast settings, the photos are either too dark or too bright. Photos of low light are usually dirty details, colors are washed, and hypertrophy are highlights. Considering the lack of optical image stabilization, this was not very surprising and the F / 2.0 aperture is not the brightest on the market when it is honorable.

E Vivo V9 Android 8.1 is running its own custom software, Vivo, called the Fortune OS at the top of Oreo. Like many other aspects of V9, the Fortune OS is quite inspired by Apple. The V9 does not have an App drawer and its many icons look almost identical to iOS.
