Vivo V7 plus was launched in September, 2017 and since then it has been one among the most popular phones in Indian market. Vivo, like many other Chinese mobile phone brands has already established their phones in the India, targeting the middle class population.
Vivo manufactures android phones that are in the low-mid price range. This is obviously a huge plus point over the Indian market, considering the fact that Indians are slowly getting into smartphones. However, considering the huge number of people this market consists of, even this slow transformation can lead to rapid sale. Vivo V7 plus is one among those phones which are targeted mainly towards middle class Indians aspiring to get an all-rounder phone for a decent price.
Vivo V7 plus price starts at Rs 19, 599. It has a screen of 5.99 inches which is pretty big, with a resolution of 720x 1440 pixels. That sounds decent, doesn’t it? Also, the phone has a 3225mAh battery which is impressive. However, the battery cannot be removed by the user, which really cannot be considered as a disadvantage. Let’s just say that if you’re buying this phone, it won’t ditch you until the end of the day even under moderate use.

It has an amazing finger print sensor that will detect your finger print within 0.2 seconds, every time you unlock your phone.

If you’re a person who loves to click selfies, this phone is tailor-made for you.

The general features and exceptionally great camera performance doesn’t fail to impress anyone. Now, let’s take a look at the flaws of this phone that may disappoint you.
Vivo V7+ Disadvantages
- Not very attractive by looks. The uninspiring plastic design makes it look much lesser than what the phone actually is and what it has to offer.
- Non removable battery which cannot be removed by the user and has to be taken to a repair shop in case of any issues.
- Even though it’s one among the best selfie phones under this price range, Vivo V7Plus does not offer a powerful user experience when it comes to all- round performance.
- V7 plus camera : The 24MP front camera is good, but the rear camera of 16 MP could have been better. After all, selfies are not the only photos you click.
- Even though the front camera is good within the price range, the other features like display is a huge disappointment. This makes V7 plus a little too expensive when considering what it has to offer.
- It uses Snapdraon 450 chipset which is an inferior choice when it comes to the price of the phone. Using a Qualcomm snapdragon 625 or upper than 625chipset is the minimum expectation for a phone that is priced around Rs 20,000.
- There is no big leap from Vivo V5s to V7plus which is a bad thing since V7plus runs android 7.1Noughat.
Wrapping it up
Vivo V7 Plus is a good camera phone with an exceptionally great selfie camera. It delivers satisfactory performance, but not one up to the expectations considering the price range of the phone. This is because of the processor of the phone which should have been something of a higher level. Even though it doesn’t have a bad battery, it could have been better. If you are conscious about the way your phone looks in your hands, this phone may disappoint you.
You cannot really say that the phone is good value for money, but if you are looking for a phone that captures the best kind of selfies, it is value for money. After all, the utility of anything is subjective and what may be value for money for one person, may not be the same for another person.
