This year, Vivo launched two new phones: Vivo V15 and V15 Pro. The ‘Pro’ variant of the device was launched in India much earlier and the non-pro variant was launched quite later. Being the toned down variant of the Vivo V15 Pro, there has been some cut down when it comes to the specs. But how well does the device perform on the real-life usage. And how does it stack against its competitors? You will find all about it in this Vivo V15 Review. But before I get into that, here is the price of the device in various countries.

Vivo V15 price in Thailand: THB 10,999
Vivo V15 price in Nepal: Rs. 45,190
Vivo V15 price in India: INR 23,990
Vivo V15 price in Philippines: PHP 17,999
Vivo V15 price in Pakistan: PKR 49,999
Vivo V15 price in Bangladesh: Tk 39,990

As I mentioned the price of the device in various countries, now let’s talk about the Vivo V15 specs. The major highlight of the device is its display. Vivo V15 display uses a 6.53-inch IPS LCD panel unlike the Super AMOLED display on the V15 Pro. IN terms of resolution, the Vivo V15 features Full-HD+ resolution in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The display on this device does not come with any sorts of notches, punch holes and screen cutouts so it has very high screen-to-body ratio. And to incorporate this type of design, Vivo has implemented pop-up selfie camera.

The Vivo V15 Go Pop selfie camera comes with a 32MP selfie shooter, which goes up while capturing the selfies. And it’s one of the major standout features on this device on doing the Vivo V15 vs Vivo V11 and Vivo V15 vs Oppo F11 comparison. But despite being a 32MP shooter, the Vivo V15 Pop Up selfie camera saves images in at 8MP resolution. For that, Vivo does 4-in-1 pixel binning technology. Vivo V15 front camera merges four small pixels to make one big pixel that’s why the images look brighter and more sharp.

Continuing with the Vivo V15 Camera, there is a triple camera setup at the rear panel. The primary one has a 24MP resolution, which is backed by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 5MP depth shooter. On our Vivo V15 camera test, the phone did a good job. The images had plenty of details and the dynamic range was appreciable.

With the pop-up style selfie camera on the board, Vivo has marketed the device as the “Vivo V15 Go Pop”. And talking about the Vivo V15 pop up camera, it houses a 32MP sensor with an f/2.0 lens. However, despite having a 32MP selfie shooter, the Vivo V15 front camera only captures 8MP images. The camera does a 4-in-1 pixel binning, which means it merges four pixels into one big pixel. That’s why the resolution decreases.

On the performance front, the phone has got the MediaTek Helio P70 chipset with 6GB of RAM. There is 128GB of native storage on the board, which can be expanded up to 256GB via SD card. With this setup, normal apps and games runs smoothly. The smartphone also runs some high-end games without any issues. During the short time of my Vivo V15 gaming review, I played some triple-A titles like the Asphalt 9 and PUBG. And talking about my Vivo V15 PUBG experience, I was able to play the game in medium setting with just minor lags and stutters.

Talking about the battery, the phone features a massive 4000mAh non-removable. With such a big battery on the board, Vivo V15 battery life was absolutely remarkable. The device gave me backup for more than a day on my normal use. Although this device looks vaguely similar with the ‘Pro’ model in terms of design, the placement of fingerprint scanner differentiates between the two. The Vivo V15 fingerprint lies on the rear panel whereas the V15 Pro comes under the display.
