Here is a 4K video sample recorded on the Vivo V9 by Matthew Cuyugan

  • Both Front and the Rear camera of the phone can record up to 4K videos at 30 FPS. Time-lapse video shooting is also supported.
  • The beautiful notch on the top side of the display gives the Vivo V9 a smart, futuristic and iPhone X-ish look. The 6.3 inch has a 19:9 aspect ratio and has good viewing angles, the display is clearly visible outdoors.
  • The powerful Snapdragon 626 octa-core paired with the 4GB offers lag-free multitasking.
  • V9 weighs only 150 grams making it comfortable to hold in hand.
  • Being a flagship Smartphone, it comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The headphone jack is a nice addition to this phone, as most flagship Phones today like the iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 lack a headphone jack.
  • The placement of the Speaker grills on the Vivo V9 Plus is excellently placed at the bottom of the phone. The audio quality from the speaker is loud and clear even when used at max volume.
  • This smartphone features the Face unlock which works quite well for unlocking the phone in a sec but they are not secure as what iPhone X is.
  • The phone comes has a glass and metal body with tactile buttons offering a premium touch and feel of the phone.
  • The Fingerprint sensor on the phone is placed vivo v9 backbehind, which is easily accessible. The Fingerprint sensor is quite responsive and unlocks the phone in a split-second.
  • A transparent case provided in the box which helps in preventing fingerprint marks and smudges on the phone.
  • The 4GB RAM was enough to play heavy Games like Asphalt 8 and PUBG mobile with no lag. Hence, this phone would be suggested to heavy gamers.
  • The box of the phone comes with earphones included which looks quite similar to the earphones we saw with the earlier versions of iPhones. If you are looking for an earphone, check our list of Top 5 Best Earphones under 500 Rs in India and Top 10 Best Earphones under 1000 Rs in India.
  • The phone has a dedicated slot for two nano SIM cards and an SD card. This feature is quite useful to have as you can use two SIMs and an SD card simultaneously. Looking for a solution for hybrid Sim slot? here is our solution on how to Use Dual Sim + microSD together in a hybrid slot.
  • Runs on Vivo’s custom FunTouch OS 4.1 based on Android Oreo 8.1. The overall UI resembles iOS.

Vivo V9: Cons or Reasons not to buy

Negatives
  • Front Camera: The front camera does a decent job in daylight situations but, noise starts to creep in while capturing shots in low light conditions.
  • Rear Camera: The Rear camera suffers from colour reproduction in daylight conditions. Images are hard to capture in low – light and some shots captured in low- light are rather disappointing.
  • The glossy finish of the phone attracts fingerprint marks and a lot of smudges. So, using the provided Phone case which comes in the box won’t be a bad idea.
  • The phone is powered by a 3260 mAh battery, which in my opinion is slightly less when compared to budget segment phones like the Redmi Note 5 Pro (4000mAh ). We think Vivo could have done a better job in terms of battery backup for its flagship. If you are short on battery, here is a list Top 5 Best Power bank under 1500 Rs in India.
  • Shooting Videos on this phone is a nightmare as this phone has neither OIS nor EIS implemented. Video captured had a lot of jitters and were shaky. When compared to budget phones like the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Redmi Note 5, even they have EIS implemented.
  • It is disappointing to see the lack of USB Type-C in the phone, considering it is 2018 already and most devices now come with USB Type-C. No fast charging is supported either.

So this was our take on the advantages and disadvantages of the latest Vivo V9, read further for our final words on whether or not you should buy this smartphone.

Final Conclusion

If you’re looking for a phone which can click great selfies and has an iPhone X-ish notch display, then the Vivo V9 would be your best buy. But, the Vivo V9 is a flagship Smartphone with some major cons and is available at an overkill price. Yes, it does have the futuristic looking notch but the lack of major features like Fast charging, EIS/OIS, USB Type-C, etc., hardly justifies the overkill price of Rs. 22,990.
