Camera makes or breaks the deal for many smartphone users, even those who don’t necessarily buy a phone for heavy camera use. But good camera alone will be ignored by most people if a phone couldn’t perform up to the contemporary standards. It must be combined with other aspects such as battery life, performance and build quality. The V23e by vivo aimed to achieve exactly this.
But how successful is the latest V series phone in achieving that? Here are the details:
One thing no one can ignore about the V23e is its camera, particularly the front one. Its 50MP AF Portrait Selfie camera just doesn’t have the pixel-power, but rest of the bells and whistles one expects from a modern smartphone.
The front camera has the ISOCELL 3.0 which improves light sensitivity no matter what angle you’re capturing at it from. Even in low light situations, it brightens the face. It also sports Eye Autofocus which automatically locks on to a person’s eyes while capturing pictures, resulting in reduced blurring and sharpness in the pictures.
While the front camera certainly got the starring role, the rear camera system is no slouch. A triple camera setup with a 64 MP night camera, an 8MP super wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro camera, together and between them these lenses capture multi-frame de-noised crisp images in good light and not so good lighting conditions.
Stabilization technology is also robust and with the magic of AI, the feature enables automatic cropping, eliminating all the jerks and shakes.Additionally, the camera system features the Bokeh Flare Portrait mode, which adds a pop of light to the dim surroundings at night.
The V23e offers a premium specification of 8GB RAM and a 128GB/256GB ROM. The 8GB RAM can be extended up to 4 GB, so the user can get an experience equivalent to 12GB, with the help of Extended RAM 2.0. These features go hand in hand with the 4050mAh Battery that has a 44W FlashCharge.
On the operating system front the V23e comes with Funtouch OS 12. The OS also has features like Nano Music Player which helps users to quickly play or switch music without the hassle of going to the music app. The Small Windows feature allows multi-tasking by making the app interface float as a small window.
As a vivo smartphone, this device is not just about its camera and performance. It has the 7.36mm Ultra Slim AG Design.
The V23e comes in two colour variants — Moonlight Shadow and Sunshine Coast. The Moonlight Shadow is a classic polished ceramic black finish and the Sunshine Coast is a satin texture with a gradient that changes depending on the lighting conditions.
V23e is available for purchase at all vivo authorized retail stores for BDT 27,990.
