- Vivo V15 Pro does not support native video calling, so you need to install a third party application for video calling purposes.
- If you are a Netflix lover, there is a huge disappointment for you, Vivo V15 Pro has got Widevine L3 license under which you cannot watch videos either in HD or FHD on Netflix.
- Illogical pricing by Vivo as at this price range you can get Snapdragon 845 processor.

Vivo V15 Pro: Price & Availability
Final Thoughts on Vivo V15 Pro
Vivo is one of the emerging brands of smartphones in the Indian smartphone market. The futuristic Vivo V15 Pro is the latest smartphone launched recently which got all the features that a high-end smartphone should have. The unique 32MP pop-up selfie camera, a triple rear camera setup, super AMOLED display with a fifth-generation in-display fingerprint sensor makes it worth around Rs.29000.
In our opinion, the smartphone is overall a good performer with beautiful design, powerful chipset, and unique features but on the other hand, Vivo failed to add some basic things like built-in quality, features like Type C, the Widevine L1 technology etc. which can be seen in a smartphone with less pricing. But if you want a device with really good cameras and looks, you should go with the Vivo V15 Pro which is the successor of Vivo V11 Pro.
