It is a fairly big phone, and its screen stretches 6.53 inches across. If you have smaller hands, holding it might be hard. It’s pretty thin. The following are its dimensions: 161.2 mm x 75.9 mm x 8.5 mm.
It’s got some good weight which makes the V15 feel expensive. It is 189.5 grams.
It is made of plastic. However, the plastic on it is a good type so it doesn’t feel cheap.
Looking across its sides, you’ll find a 3.5 mm headphone jack and microSD slot. More on the expandable storage later on.
The device comes in many colour options. They are:
Our favourite is the black one. It has a “frosty” look to it, that you don’t see very often.
There is an IPS LCD on its front. If you’ve read our reviews before, you’d know that the panel isn’t the most vibrant. However, there’s barely any bezel action going on. How do you feel about an 85.6% screen-to-body ratio?
It has a sharp display as well. Its pixel resolution is 1080 x 2340 pixels.
The glass on its front is Gorilla Glass 5 so denting it is hard.
The V15 wasn’t released this year. That’s why it doesn’t run Android 10 out of the box. You’re met with Android 9. It’s available via Vivo’s Funtouch UI.
Can you upgrade its systems to Android 10? Yes.
Let’s talk about the chipset housed. It is the Helio P70 chip. It’s a processor fit for a mid-ranger but it’s capable of handling whatever you throw at it.
Its fingerprint sensor is snappy. It’s on the rear and is easy to reach.
You can pick it up with either 64 or 128 GB of space. Its microSD slot lets you expand its storage to almost double the specified amounts. What about RAM? There is 6 GB of it.
The mobile has a 4000 mAh battery inside it. Unfortunately, it is non-removable. You can fast charge the handset. There is a micro USB for you to use. Just know that the entry is considered dated these days.
Reverse and wireless charging aren’t available. You can’t remove its battery either.
Camera-wise, it does alright. There is a triple set-up on its rear. It consists of a 24 MP primary sensor, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor and a 5 MP depth one. Shots are decently colour accurate and vibrant. In low-light, it underperforms but the set-up comes with a bright LED flash.
When looking at its front, you might have noticed the absence of a notch. That’s why its screen-to-body ratio is so good. It comes with a motorized front camera with a 32 MP wide lens that pops up smoothly. Unlike its counterpart on the back, there is no LED flash.
Here’s the deal:
The V15 is a mid-ranger on the higher end of the price spectrum. Considering everything we said, we don’t think it’s worth its price. You can purchase it for Rs.60,000 islandwide.
