Vivo has been steadily launching new smartphone models across multiple series in India to expand its portfolio. In the past year, we have seen the addition of the Vivo Z series, U series, and X series, which have been targeted at those who buy phones online. However, Vivo's oldest series, the camera-centric V series, hasn't been forgotten. The company has just added to this series with the new Vivo V19. As its name suggests, it is the successor to the Vivo V17, but it is priced slightly higher.
The Vivo V19 is the successor to the Vivo V17 and is yet another selfie-focused smartphone from the company. Vivo has focused on the design and the build quality of the device and the V19 feels like a premium device. The body is made out of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and feels premium to the touch. Vivo also offers it in some interesting colours.
The 6.44-inch AMOLED display has full-HD+ resolution and sharp output. It has excellent viewing angles, and the panel gets bright enough when outdoors. Vivo also offers an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Vivo V19 which is quick to unlock the device. Powering the smartphone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC which is weak. There is 8GB of RAM which helps the smartphone handle day-to-day tasks well.
It has a quad-camera setup at the back and a dual-camera setup for selfies. We found the camera performance to be good and the software easy to use. Daylight camera performance is good and the phone manages good edge detection in portrait shots. Low-light camera performance is acceptable but shooting in night mode is a tad slow.
