Vivo in recent years has been relatively successful and has become the first brand to produce a hidden camera with the Nex series. And recently, Vivo has sought to make a mark in the market by bringing outstanding advantages to the mid-range segment and V15 initially created a good impression with users globally in general and the Vietnamese market in particular. . Basically, Vivo V15 is a smartphone with an attractive design, with up to 3 rear cameras, a hidden selfie camera of 32MP resolution, a large battery capacity and a very good price. In the segment of Vivo V15, there are many competing products but this product still has its own values for users to choose.
Vivo V15 has an identical design but is bigger than the V15 Pro, which is quite opposite to the market trend. According to the senses, Vivo V15 has a different design from the market, the handset holds a very good quality finishing, this is also the advantage of Vivo smartphones over the past 2 years.
The inclusion of a pop-up camera helps Vivo optimize most of the front surface for the screen without the appearance of a notch or a drop of water like competitors. The pop-up camera is also an impressive highlight since the Nex series, although this technology will make the device a bit thicker but in return has a full screen.
Vivo V15 gets noticed in two impressive colors with the ability to switch colors and bright lithium dots to create accents. The back helps the phone become special and trendy market. Along with the color, the triple camera cluster on the back also stands out as a true camera device and this part of the camera is seamless and the pop-up sensor inside to not destroy the integrity of the device. To ensure the user experience, Vivo provides a shockproof case to protect the device and is suitable for a typical retractable camera.
The back of the device is polished, seamless with the surrounding edge for a firm grip, but the back is quite clinging to fingerprints. Besides, when using the case, the size of the device becomes much larger and quite difficult to hold for people with small hands like girls.
Vivo V15 screen occupies 90.95% of the front with minimalist edges, chin is still quite thick, but this is also a common limitation of mid-range smartphones. Vivo calls the display technology Ultra Fullview, which is covered by Gorilla Glass 5 for durability.
Screen and sound
Vivo introduces Ultra Fullview screen with Full HD + resolution on V15 with In-Cell technology of 6.53 inches. It’s a pity that Vivo doesn’t use a Super AMOLED screen like V15 Pro or Galaxy A50 but the display quality on V15 is impressive.
Vivo V15 screen displays brilliantly, reproducing videos, images and wide viewing angles thanks to In-Cell technology that shortens the distance between the panel and the glass screen. The screen of the machine has a slightly biased color to cool tones, but users can adjust in the settings if you do not like the blue screen. Actually, about the screen experience, V15 in particular and other Vivo products in the mid-range segment are doing very well. Not to mention, the V15 has a true full-screen display that makes watching movies, playing games become airy and without any unpleasant cut points.
One point to note is that the screen on the machine is not really good brightness, outdoor use is quite uncomfortable when the ball is reached even though the brightness reaches 100%. External speakers on the machine also nothing special, clear, clear, the volume at just enough to hear.
In a budget smartphone of less than VND 8 million, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory is an attempt of Vivo. The V15 runs on MediaTek P70 processor manufactured on 12nm process, the chip will be popular in the mid-range segment in 2019. MediaTek’s processor brings a relatively good performance, comes with 6GB of RAM. for great multitasking capabilities. Vivo also features GameMode 5.0 for better gaming support.
In the Antutu Benchmark test, the device scored more than 146 thousand points with a GPU score of 34627 points. Apparently, the Mali-G73 MP3 GPU offers the same performance as the Adreno 512 of the Snapdragon 660 found on the Redmi Note 7, while the heat is also less, the V15 works cool even when playing heavy games. The 8-core MediaTek P70 processor consists of 2.1GHz Cortex-A73 and 2.0GHz Cortex-A53 quad-core scored 1551 single-core and 5726 multi-core in GeekBench test.
Practical test with PUBG Mobile, Vivo V15 ran well with average graphics level, during the game there was a slight but negligible fps drop. On the other hand, MOBA games like Mobile Legends, Mobile Alliance, users can completely install at high graphics levels without encountering any dropouts when fighting with the best skill effects of the characters. . Of course, at the FHD + graphics level, hit games like Asphalt 9, Shadow Fight 3 will also encounter some cases of lag, but at a very light rate at high settings.
Overall, MediaTek Helio P70 is a perfect solution for mid-range mobile phone brands with the advantages of providing enough performance with optimized heat, even cooler than Snapdragon. The remaining part of the vendors is the ability to optimize this chip, Vivo has done very well in this regard.
It is not difficult to point out the advantages of Vivo V15 when this product focuses on the camera. There are two highlights that Vivo V15 possesses including the largest mid-range selfie camera, three camera sensors on the back that allow shooting from wide-angle to ultra-wide angle and portrait.
The camera interface is quite simple but still provides enough useful modes such as Pro, AR, AI support, Pro mode and document scanning, while switching between wide-angle, normal and portrait photography is also available. Simple and neat. At the top, we can find settings, portrait lighting effects, animations, and HDR mode.
In terms of specifications, the 12MP main camera uses a 1 / 1.28-inch sensor, a pixel size of 1.28 microns and a large aperture of f / 1.78. Vivo says the main camera has up to 24 million photosensitive units, which uses Dual Pixel focusing technology to deliver brighter images and greater clarity, HDR proved effective. In fact, the photos from the rear camera of Vivo V15 are very detailed, vibrant colors, but the weakness of this product lies in the ability to shoot wide-angle and in low light conditions despite the addition of night mode . The strongest point on Vivo V15 is its ability to take portraits with separate depth-sensing sensors and close-ups.

The lack of too many highlights in the rear camera has been offset by the selfie sensor up to 32MP with photos for extremely detailed, true color reproduction. The ability to take selfies with clear fonts is also particularly impressive with the ability to calculate accuracy, detail and many additional effects.
The AI Beauty mode comes with a lot of beauty options like smoothing skin, brightening the skin, making slim and adjusting eye size. In addition, it is quite surprising that this mode allows to reduce the waist as well as lengthen the legs when shooting the whole body. Of course, depending on the ability of the user to customize the most realistic photo, not too virtual. In terms of selfie, Vivo and Oppo are the two brands that do the best so far.
The Vivo V15 selfie is very good
V15 with a large size makes Vivo easily “insert” the 4000mAh capacity battery inside. This battery helps the device last a day of use with many functional tasks. During usage, constantly connecting to Wi-Fi networks, surfing the web, watching Facebook, listening to music, playing games within an hour and listening to calls, Vivo V15 still has up to 30% battery until the end of the day. Watching time of Full HD video lasts more than 15 hours, which is really an impressive number.
Experiment with playing a PUBG Mobile game for about 30 minutes at the highest brightness via Wi-Fi connection, the battery on Vivo V15 is reduced by 8%, playing Mobile Legend for 15 minutes is reduced by 3% and the Mobile alliance for 20 minutes is 5%, the minimum numbers indicate Vivo’s good optimization as well as the Helio P70 chip. In addition, the manufacturer also offers an 18W charger that allows charging from 0-40% within 30 minutes and 75% after an hour. Testing fully charged from 0%, it takes about 1 hour 35 minutes.
Vivo V15 impresses with its long battery life, outstanding design, good finishing quality and a perfect selfie camera. This is a product worth considering in the price range below genuine VND 8 million in Vietnam. However, there are some issues that you have to consider including the ability to capture night images of the rear camera as well as the relatively outdated micro-USB port at the moment.
