Vivo V17 Review

By Aditya Shenoy (Dec 16, 2019)
  • Good
  • Vivid display
  • Good battery life
  • Decent low-light camera performance
  • Bad
  • Below average low-light video
  • Preinstalled bloatware, spammy notifications
  • High price

Vivo has been launching smartphones at a rapid pace in the latter half of this year. One recent launch, the Vivo U20, managed to make headlines for its price-to-performance ratio. Surprisingly Vivo has launched yet another smartphone, this time in the V-series, called the Vivo V17. You can look at this new smartphone as a lower-priced version of the Vivo V17 Pro. It lacks the dual pop-up selfie camera module and goes with a hole-punch design instead. Can it justify its Rs. 22,990 price tag in a market crowded with great low-cost devices, including some of Vivo's own? We review to find out.

Vivo V17 Summary

Vivo V17 is a good looking smartphone finished in a fancy paint job, At the front, it has a hole-punch selfie camera which makes it look modern. It has a 6.44-inch display with thin bezels on the sides. It also packs in a 4,500mAh battery but it isn’t very bulky at 176g. It sports a quad-camera setup at the back with a 48-megapixel primary shooter.

Powering the Vivo V17 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC which is relatively dated. It is paired with 8GB of RAM which makes multitasking easy. There is 128GB of storage which is plenty for an average user. The Vivo V17 runs Funtouch OS 9.2 on top of Android 9. There is a fair amount of bloatware on the device and we found that a few preinstalled apps pushed spammy notifications.

Battery life is good and the smartphone could last over a day easily. Camera performance of the Vivo V17 was very good in daylight but low-light photos had some noise. Night mode helps deliver a better shot. Low-light video recording is below average and could do with a few tweaks.
