Vivo V9 Brief Review and Pros Cons:

Vivo V9 is the latest smartphone launched by Vivo on 23rd March 2018. Vivo has always been focused towards the selfie camera, but this time, in addition to the Selfie Camera, Vivo has come up with many new features and yeah the notch as well. In terms of design, V9 looks mesmerizingly beautiful with a bezel-less display of 6.3 Inches Full HD+ display having 1080 x 2280 resolution. It is a FullView Display panel with19:9 aspect ratio (90% Body to Screen Ratio) and a notch at the top similar to iPhone X, but is smaller and narrower.

Talking about the specifications, Vivo V9 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 which scores approximately 67000 on the Antutu Benchmark Score. It has 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 256 GB with a dedicated SD card slot and Dual sim usage.

In the camera department, Vivo V9 has a rear dual sensor of 16MP and 5MP which is placed vertically on the back. The Rear Camera produces perfect bokeh shots and uses AI techniques to improvise on the images. The dual camera has a wide angle lens so you can capture more in a single shot.  You can even shoot first and focus later, transforming every photo into an artistic masterpiece.

The front camera is a 24 MP sensor and reflects the inclination of Vivo towards Selfie, the selfie also supports depth/bokeh effect using Artifical Intelligence(AI) .V9 comes with AI Face Beauty that uses Machine Learning to find users' age, skin tone, sex and other features to "truly represent the person beauty". It also features a Selfie Lighting feature as was seen in iPhone X. So you will never be short of a great camera and selfie images anytime. It also has AR stickers for selfies which is just like Snapchat filters.

Vivo V9 also puts emphasis AI Smart Engine that is responsible to handle storage and app launching based on user behavior and AI Attention Scanning that lowers the volume of notification when the user is looking on the display. In terms of unlocking, it comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back and also supports face unlocking that again uses AI and Machine Learning (AI Face Access) that improves the accuracy of the Face Unlock Feature. Both the methods work smoothly and have very good accuracy.

On the Software front, Vivo V9 runs on Funtouch OS 4.0 which is a custom skin built over Android Oreo 8.1. The UI is clean and comes with many software features to ease your day to day activities. The battery of Vivo V9 is rated at 3290mAH and given the big screen size it lasts only for a day. Fast Charging is supported in Vivo V9 with the mobile getting fully charged in less than 1.5 hours  The battery is not a huge one to keep the check on the thickness and weight which just measure 7.9 mm and 150gm respectively. Vivo V9 is not water resistant or dust proof as it does not have any IP rating.

So if you are looking for a great camera setup and Fun of AI in your life, you can go for it, there is only one small disappointment that it runs 2 years old Snapdragon 626 which has been preceded by Snapdragon 630 and 636. Still, the overall performance is good and you won't face any lags while multi-tasking or gaming.

It is available both on Flipkart and Amazon at 22990 with different offers which can be checked on the links above. Overall, it is a great looking smartphone with excellent cameras. Go for it if your budget is around 25000.
