Vivo V15 Detailed Review

Design

Vivo V15 comes with an excellent dual-tone design and camera features. The gradient finish, spectrum ripple design on the rear panel is covered by Gorilla Glass 5. Vivo V15 comes in four different colours: Royal blue, Frozen black, Aqua blue and Glamour red. The Vivo V15 is bundled with Earpieces, a USB cable, USB Power Adapter, SIM Ejector, a Protective case and a Protective film

The screen-to-body ratio is 90.95%. It feels relatively big at 189 grams with a 6.5-inch display. For some, it isn't delightful to hold it. The Vivo V15 body is covered by polycarbonate. Eventually, it will be prone to fingerprints and smudges. The best part of the V15 is the build quality of the phone is powerful. The protruding camera at the back is a disappointment because it's challenging to place on a flat surface.

Display

The Vivo V15 screen is 6.53-inch long and provides a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels. The Vivo V15 screen uses an LCD panel instead of an OLED.

Software

The Vivo V15 runs on Funtouch OS 9, which is based on Android 9 Pie. The exciting thing is that FunTouch OS 9 doesn't fill with several third-party apps. The performance of the Vivo V15 is less than expected. The Funtouch Os offers a new feature, GameCube, which enhances the in-game experience.

Now, the current version is Android 11 based Funtouch OS 11.
