So, is it any good? All from a quick look of the device. The Vivo V15 looks different compared to the existing phones like the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Mini and the Motorola Photon. Though, the design and material are almost similar, there are some subtle differences that might affect the user experience. Let’s see in detail.

The body of the vivo v15 is almost identical to the Nokia 8.1 yet the company has reduced the weight of the handset by two thirds. This is achieved with the use of Gorilla Glass, which works like an anti-glare filter on the screen. In fact, the only difference is that the brightness is increased and not decreased. This causes the display to be dimmer under low light conditions but the battery life is still much more than that of the comparably priced Nokia phones.

With a 4.2 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch vivo v15 screen and a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch, the vivo v15 easily manages to impress the user with its brilliant screen and brilliant pictures. The only thing that could be lacking was the software support for the HTC Evo Shift. This was rectified with the release of android version of the handset, which received the Android O as well. With the support of HTC Sense, the pictures would have been very bright and sharp.

The front camera is just as impressive as the rear camera. It has a 13 MP sensor and is housed in the housing that is touch sensitive. It allows the user to take high definition videos and stills and the quality is superb. The Ooxie guts allow the user to shoot in M mode which does not utilize the flash. This is important as it prevents the delay that occurs when you press the camera button and the camera turns on. The result of this is that the HTC vivo v15 can take good videos even in low light situations.

In games like Evolve, the picture quality is incredible. The colours are bright, there is no colour distortion and the viewing is excellent. There is no juddering effect when you view the screen in games like Evolve. It makes the gameplay and game play much smoother using the vivo v15.

The touch screen of the vivo v15 is also responsive and responds quickly when you point it at the target. The user interface is easy to understand and navigate which further adds to its ease of use. It is one of the most impressive smartphone cameras that money can buy. The Nokia 8.1 Plus is yet another example of how a smartphone can be both compact and have features that matter.
