This Color-Altering Smartphone Packs A Punch


The corporate’s V collection have at all times leaned on their images chops and now, they alter colors.

Take a bucketload of smartphones priced round Rs 35,000, stick them on a wall, and throw a stone at them. Chances are high, you’ll hit a cellphone that merely can not and won’t disappoint — that is how good smartphones have change into these days.

So, to face out from the pack, every smartphone must have a characteristic uniquely its personal.

And the vivo V25 Professional, priced at round Rs 35,000 — give or take a proposal or two — does precisely that. The corporate’s V collection have at all times leaned on their images chops and now, they alter colors. Granted, it is extra a gimmick than an precise quality-of-life characteristic, however it’s undeniably enjoyable to take the “so blue it hurts your eyes” smartphone out within the Solar. The second ultraviolet rays hit the smartphone, the blue slowly turns into darker.

That aside, the V25 Professional evaluation unit I obtained had 8 gigs of RAM and 128 GB of storage with a twin SIM card slot. On the entrance, the cellphone has a curved 6.56-inch Full HD OLED show that’s vibrant and punchy and boasts of a 120 Hz refresh fee, a 32-megapixel selfie digicam and an under-the-screen sonic fingerprint scanner.

The rear is the place it will get actually fascinating — other than its chameleonic ‘Crusing Blue’ frosted glass, the cellphone packs a 64 MP main shooter with optical picture stabilisation, an 8 MP ultrawide angle lens and a 2 MP macro that you’ll — I assure — lose curiosity in after a dozen images.

I say this not due to its abysmally low megapixel rely, however as a result of the first lens is the true star of the present. In daylight, the digicam captures vibrant, vibrant images which are a tad oversaturated however are pleasing to the attention.

Inside, the smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset and a 4,830 mAh battery. It has two RAM/storage choices — 8/128 and 12/256.

The one let down — and for some, this may be a deal breaker — was the person expertise.

The V25 Professional comes with Funtouch 12, a pores and skin of Android 12, out of the field, and it has fairly a couple of tough edges. Regardless of the 120 Hz refresh fee, scrolling and animations on this cellphone are something however clean — there stutters, jitters and judders galore. This may merely be poor software program optimisation and probably on account of  the 8 GB of RAM my evaluation unit had, as the identical OS on Vivo’s flagship X80 is buttery clean. The battery is an actual champ, nonetheless, lasting me a full day after which some on a single cost and medium-heavy utilization.

What ought to have been a superb expertise — which you may have each proper to anticipate of a Rs 35,000 smartphone — is marred by the poor person expertise. Hopefully, Vivo fixes this by means of future updates as clearly, Funtouch OS has what it takes to be, properly, enjoyable.

However should you’re okay with a subpar OS expertise as you are in it just for the cameras, then go for it. You’ll not be disillusioned.
