As the holidays near, buyers are again out for a search for a new smartphone and every year, people are looking for an upgrade of what they are currently using. Normally, some of the features we are looking for in 2017 can only be seen over and above the budget.
Good thing the Vivo V7+ has been announced and it offers the features you might be looking for in a 2017 smartphone. We have listed the top 5 reasons to buy the Vivo V7+ for you to take a look.
ALL SCREEN DISPLAY
Smartphones with borderless or all screen displays are becoming a thing this 2017. Unfortunately, these 18:9 displays are only found in high end smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ or the upcoming Apple iPhone X.
Now, for only P17,990 getting the 18:9 aspect ratio goodness for watching movies and games is possible with the Vivo V7+. The 6-inch display covers much of the front of the device with 84.4% screen-to-body ratio.
24 MEGAPIXEL SELFIE CAMERA
Vivo has positioned itself as a smartphone brand that offers selfie centric smartphones and the Vivo V7+ is no different. It has a 24 megapixel front facing camera. It is packed with features such as Face Beauty 7.0, Portrait Mode and Face Beauty for video calls.
Video bloggers will love the Face Beauty for video calls because it is also working when doing Facebook Live or Instagram Live. Skype, Whatsapp, and Viber video calls are better when you look beautiful with it.
Groupfies or group selfies is also possible through Vivo’s own group selfie feature. In order for you to take everyone in a photo, you have to pan the camera left and right just like what you do when taking panorama shots.
FACE ID ACCESS
There are now ways to keep your phone secured. One is put up a pattern or number combination and the popular one now is the fingerprint scanner which is present on most smartphone nowadays. Another feature that you can also use to unlock your phone is your face. Vivo calls it Face ID Access.
Simply hold up your Vivo V7+ infront of your face and the front camera scans your face and unlocks it. Simply go to Setting > Fingerprint, Face and Password > Face. Put up a 6-digit or 4-digit password then follow instructions.
ALL DAY BATTERY
The 3,225 mAh battery can last you all day with moderate to heavy use. The reason lies on the display and its chipset. The HD display and the Snapdragon 450 chipset sips less juicy thus giving you more power all-day.
VALUE FOR MONEY
High end features like the all-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio, Face ID Access and the 24 megapixel camera are often seen in high end smartphones. For P17,990 the Vivo V7+ offers it for about less than half the price. That’s what we call value for money.
