Vivo brought the Vivo U10 in India in late September to compete with Xiaomi and Realme at the budget end of the market. The Vivo U10 is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor as the Redmi Note 8 and the Realme 5. With the competition churning out phones at such a high rate, it was time for Vivo to push out an update, and now it has, with the Vivo U20. The naming clearly suggests that this is a higher-end model than the Vivo U10, and we are expecting this smartphone to keep the competition in the market alive.

Vivo U20 Summary

The Vivo U20 is from the online exclusive U series from Vivo. The Vivo U20 sports a 6.53-inch IPS LCD display with a dewdrop notch at the top. It has a full-HD+ resolution and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.3 percent. The phone is a tad bulky at 193g which is mainly down to the 5,000mAh battery that it packs.

Powering the Vivo U20 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC and it is offered with 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants. Storage for both these variants remains the same at 64GB which is further expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. The smartphone is available in Racing Black and Blaze Blue colour variants. In the box, the smartphone comes with an 18W fast charger which helps top the device quickly.

Vivo ships the U20 with Funtouch OS 9.2 running on top of Android 9. It does get a fair amount of bloatware preinstalled on the smartphone. The Vivo U20 has a triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 16-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel super-wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. For selfies, it has a 16-megapixel selfie shooter. It clicks decent photos in daylight but low-light camera isn’t great.

  • Best at this price range. This mobile is even best in price range upto 20K
    Yogesh Murgude (May 19, 2020) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I just bought this mobile in Feb 2020. Last 3 months I am using for everything due to current situation. It never failed me. . Battery perfect. Lasts long. I keep continuously using for online training, but never heats up, and never drains faster. . Charging - Superfast, even better than C-type charger. 80% withing hour. I thought old USB type provided might be slow as I checked many reviews, but it proved wrong. . RAM/Processor - No delay what-so-ever. I played PubG HD with ease considering I am playing it for the first time. . Speakers - Best in this segment. No problem playing Audio / Video for a long time. Volume much louder. . Camera - Much better than other phones in this segment. . User interface - I am in love with this interface. Before I use to hate Vivo interface. But this time it is the best. All the features are well placed. .Internal memory: 64GB Very less as compared to the performance of the mobile. Available only around 45/50 GB for use. We need at least 128 for such a fast performing mobile. I consumed almost 60% of the memory and there is no lagging, or delay in performance that is the case with my old phones. . Display - I used best Sony mobiles with best displays, and this one is good. . Updates - Not that frequent, but once in a month. OK.

  • Awesome phone with not so good camera and battery life
    AmazonCustomer (Jan 8, 2020) on Amazon
    Amazon seller:1. Amazon seller sold us a used Vivo U20. We could clearly see fingerprints on the case cover and a small scratch on the display. We wanted to return this, but we were afraid that we would get a worse piece than this.So kindly understand that the review we are doing here may not be for a new smartphone. It may be for a used one. We don't know.Vivo Camera:2. Camera is good, but lacks sharpness in auto mode when light does not fall directly on the face, especially when the light source is behind the person. It is because Vivo camera software optimizes the facial image colors to look the same color as it looks to the naked eye. But it does a good job here. Also in this case, when the light source is behind the object in focus, the object brightness is increased by the software, but due to this, the background brightness also increases to the extent of whitewashing out all the background picture.3. Low light: Night mode does not work as good as normal mode with increased exposure. Night mode brings reddish images in case the light source's color is towards the infrared spectrum and vice versa, while normal mode with increased exposure reproduces close-to-correct colors but also brings more grainy pictures.What is worth noting here is - even Vivo Z1 Pro has the Sony IMX499 camera sensor. And in low light, both Vivo Z1 Pro and Vivo U20 struggle to capture details.4. 10X zoom doesn't work properly at all in night mode or normal mode. Only pure noise is seen, which is understandable.5. Video focusing is not fast. We need to tap multiple times to focus an object in video; and while taking a video in frequent movement, the focus is worse.6. Rear camera struggles to focus during video at night/low light.7. EIS in video recording shows vibrations in the video which is a bit disappointing. Front camera doesn't have EIS.Vivo OS:8. The OS functionality is awesome. Control panel is given in the downside so it is more convenient for fingers to reach.9. Battery optimisation is an important issue here. Though 5000 mAh, it is not used effectively. During night the battery level drops by 6 to 20% or even more based on network, ram and app type and device hardware sensors activation. Stand By mode takes 11% of the battery even though the smartphone is in data saving and low power mode. Low power mode does not work wonders. From 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM next day, the battery decreased from 76% to 67% using low power mode.10. There should be a customisation given to add/edit/delete the Shortcut Centre icons.11. Presently dark theme is not for selected apps. It is given for throughout the OS. Whitelisting of apps should be provided for dark theme also as given for data saving mode.12. Bloatwares. We should have the control on needing/not needing the apps.14. App switch shortcut on square button at bottom is not smooth. It doesn't happen quickly.Hardware:15. The phone is heavy to handle. Physical optimization could be done to decrease the weight of the device. We need Graphene now.16. Look of the phone is good from outside.17. Call quality and signal reception is really good.18. Dual active sims technology should've been there - so we know who is calling us through the SIM2 when we are talking through SIM1. Both SIMs should be able to work independently and dead locks should be facilitated to manually override/prioritize. This technology is missing.19. Simultaneous multisim + multi-channel-wifi network usage is missing.20. Though Vivo U20 claimed UFS 2.1 storage, in daily usage we won't find much of a difference. We did the storage speed test using 4 different speed testing apps available on Google Play Store, and have compared the speeds with emmc storage smartphones.Sequential and random read speeds with other emmc smartphones are comparable, but write speeds of Vivo U20 storage are twice that of emmc smartphones.21. The battery in Vivo U20 discharges faster on using WiFi compared to Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.SD 675:It seems proper optimization of processor for Vivo U20 is not done properly as SD 636 as well as SD 675 perform with almost the same speed for daily use apps though there's a difference of A53, A73 (Kryo 260) and A55, A76 (Kryo 460). May be it would be evident during gaming or graphics intensive tasks.For most of the above concerns, software updates have to be given by Vivo Team.Please note that our experience may not be the same for all. That is why we need your experience shared here in review section so Vivo can work on these pain points and resolve them through OTA software updates.Vivo, kindly take all these suggestions into consideration and send us software updates soon.
