The Vivo V9 features dual rear cameras, 24-megapixel front camera and a notch that is comparable to the iPhone X. Also, it has the latest Android Oreo software. The phone gets users excited as it features interesting specs at a fair price. While the phone is expected to have some serious competitors, its iPhone-like design and cameras might just be its propeller to make it big in the market. If you are considering getting this phone, below are some things you should know:
It Has a Striking Design
The V9 appears like the iPhone X, the premium flagship of Apple, especially when you look at it from the front. Also, it comes with a near edge-to-edge screen and a notch up-top. Such notch lets the Chinese brand provide a screen-to-body ratio of nearly 90 percent despite the slight chin at the bottom which the iPhone X doesn’t have.
It Has an Interesting On-Board Notch
The notch on-board of the V9 is home to the earpiece, an LED notification light, the front camera and regular sensors. Also, the phone supports face unlock, although it is nothing like Face ID. However, this is something people can overlook as the phone belongs to the mid-range segment.
It is Light and Slim
The Vivo 9 phone weighs 150 grams and measures 7.89 mm in thickness. However, it comes at a cost. While handy and attractive, it does not feel solid in your hands. But compared to other phones like the Huawei honor 9 lite, it still gets better dimensions.
It is Good in Terms of All-Round Usage
The V9 is powered by a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor with a 64 GB internal storage and 46 GB of RAM. With a dedicated micro-SD card slot, the internal storage can be expanded to up to 256 GB. It is regarded as the most powerful phone in its price point.
Moreover, the phone is equipped with a dual camera system on the rear with a 16-megapixel sensor. It has the shot refocus feature. Also, the camera system has phase detection autofocus and LED flash.
It has Software that Runs Smooth for the Most Part
Although Vivo has skinned nearly all aspects of Android that it doesn’t feel Android anymore, it ensures their phones run mostly smooth. The Vivo V9 runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based Funtouch OS 4.0, the custom skin of the Chinese brand.
