Vivo V17 Pro

Vivo V17 Pro Summary

The Vivo V17 Pro is a unique offering, with two pop-up selfie cameras and four more at the back. It’s well built and looks premium, despite the all-polycarbonate build. It’s a little chunky and heavy but still quite manageable. The 6.44-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display is bright, has good colour saturation and viewing angles. There’s also Corning Gorilla Glass 6 for protection. 

The in-display fingerprint sensor works well but face unlock is only used as a last resort and can’t be used as the primary method for unlocking the phone. The phone has two SIM card slots but nothing for a microSD card. You also get a ‘smart key’ button which can be customised to perform different functions. 

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC and comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The SoC is a little weak for the price but is fairly capable of handling apps and games. Keep in mind that it does make the phone quite hot with prolonged camera use or gaming. 

The rear 48-megapixel camera shoots good quality oversampled shots in both daytime and in low light. The ultra wide-angle camera captures more in the frame and is also used for shooting super macros. There’s a telephoto camera too which offers 2x optical zoom. The V17 Pro also has a depth camera, which helps when shooting bokeh portraits. The 32-megapixel selfie camera captures pleasing selfies and also supports Night mode. The secondary 8-megapixel wide-angle camera lets you get a lot more people in one frame. 

Battery life is very good. The 4100mAh battery easily lasts for a day and half. There’s fast charging too, which charges the battery fully in about two hours.
