Upon first glance, we are trying to figure out which phone resembles the Vivo V3 Max. We know it took some inspiration from the iPhone a bit we think it is a mix of the best we’ve seen from many phones. The V3 Max is encased in metal just many phones we are seeing right now. Despite in a metal body, the Vivo V3 Max suprisingly feels lighter and really thin. It is also solidly build proving that Vivo is eager to prove something.

Ports and button placements

  • Left – pinhole for the hybrid SIM card slots
  • Right – Power button and Volume rockers
  • Bottom – USB charging port, microphone, speaker grill
  • Back – fingerprint scanner and 13 megapixel camera

We are very excited to try this Vivo V3 Max out for two weeks! We will definitely explore its own skin on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop called Funtouch OS. It takes some getting used to but we will report back on that on our full review. 🙂
