Vivo V20 SE

Vivo V20 SE Review, Pros and Cons – The affordable Vivo v series features three new devices under its hood, including the Vivo V20 SE budget phone. Unlike the brothers with top-of-the-line specifications, the Vivo V20 SE falls into the initial intermediate segment. It is worth mentioning that it has incredible features that make this phone a valuable purchase option if you are looking for a better design and a camera at the same time.

The V20 SE device first arrives on the Maylasian market and then there are chances that it will appear on the Indian market. Despite this, the price of $ 290 (21,990 INR) fits according to the specifications provided. Let’s start the review of the Vivo V20 SE smartphone.

Vivo V20 SE Review

Highlights

  1. The company has an elegant design and the 6.44 inches tall screen offers a charming display.
  2. In the inner section, the entry-level SoC Snapdragon 665 integrates to provide excellent system performance.
  3. A triple camera is located on the camera plate, which follows the primary standard of 48 MP.
  4. The 4100 mAh battery charges through the 33W fast charging cradle.

Design and Display

Vivo never lacks the quality of design and layout that eventually enhance the appearance in multiple folds. The precise color combination placed on the phone gives a high gradient touch, although the V20 SE phone has a plastic body.

In addition, the band-shaped camera adds some facial features that are sure to impress users. From the front, the 6.44 inches AMOLED screen comes with a fingerprint reader under the display that works efficiently, generating a decent brightness setting and Full HD+ resolution. Check out Vivo V20 and V20 Pro advantages and disadvantages.

Memory and Internal

The processing section equips the configuration of the 11 nm Snapdragon 665 chipset on the board and the Adreno 610 graphics unit, along with support for 4G connectivity. At the same time, the octa-core processor helps to increase performance up to the 2.0 GHz clock speed, which is the maximum speed you can achieve with this processor.

On the contrary, the processor heats up quickly in performance-oriented multitasking, as well as in a long gaming session, which may not be the right choice, as it will drain and damaged battery life. You can get 128 GB on the phone storage while the 8 GB of RAM manages all tasks and runs the entire system smoothly.

Camera

Vivo has always been known for its fantastic selfie cameras and, in the case of Vivo V20 SE, nothing was missing since it comes with a 32 MP selfie port with a waterfall notch.

On the other hand, a triple camera arrives at the rear panel, which includes a 48 MP primary camera, 8 MP ultra-wide camera, and 2 MP depth camera. Of course, you’ll have support for night mode, portrait, Full HD+ recording, and more in the standard camera app.

Battery and Others

The 4100 mAh battery retains all of the phone’s power and charges through the 33 W charging block, which takes less than an hour to fill the battery.

As for the other factors, you’ll have a number of easy-to-use settings and features to customize the Funtouch 11 interface as you wish. In addition, it has 3.5 mm connectors on the bottom with speaker grids and a USB 2.0 port.
