Vivo V23 5G Review
We will divide our review into the perspective of camera, battery, performance, design, and usability.
Vivo V23 5G comes with three rear cameras although the camera module is similar to some other Vivo smartphone camera modules it is a flat surface smartphone. The main wide-angle camera is of 64 MP primary camera with an f/1.89 aperture, the second one is an ultra-wide 8 MP camera, and the last one is a macro camera of 2 MP with an f/2.4 aperture. 64 MP camera provides pictures with good resolution and high detail. A good dynamic range is available. For balancing highlights, an editing tool is provided in this smartphone.
One of the most highlighting features of this smartphone is that it is the most higher megapixel selfie camera in the tech industry right now. The front camera setup features one 50 MP camera with auto eye focused technology along with a second 8 MP camera. So, it is the best choice for capturing good memories with nice details and high resolutions. Portrait quality is also good in selfies with typical Vivo skin tones.
Electronic image stabilization (EIS) mode is available for both front and rear cameras. The crop sensor is available in stable mode. Overall, it provides good focus in selfies.
Some other features like dual-LED flash, Panorama, HDR, digital zoom options, slow motion, and EIS mode are provided. Overall, in our review, a balanced camera is provided which is able to get 10/10 ratings.
Vivo V23 5G comes with a non-removable 4200 mAh battery. The battery type is a lithium-polymer type that is better in performance than a li-ion battery. Battery timing is more than a day. Now we move towards the charger and charging time then Vivo V23 5G smartphone comes with a 44 W fast charger along with a USB cable. The company claims 68% charging in just 30 minutes however it is advertised time and not tested by ourselves. A battery with 4500 mAh or more could be installed but according to my opinion small battery is optioned due to the slim design of this smartphone. The overall rating for the battery is 9/10.
Another stimulating factor for its use is MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G octa-core 6nm Processor. Vivo V23 provides an extended RAM feature and can use 4GB extra if needed. So overall storage can be extended up to 12GB and 16GB. MediaTek Dimensity is an efficient and decent processor for gaming purposes. Graphics are optimized for different types of users. This smartphone has an internal storage of 128 GB/ 256 GB so, important data and files can be easily stored in Vivo V23. It has good connectivity options and supports Wi-Fi 802.11.
Having an efficient processor and Android 12 operating system, it is smooth in performance and gets 9/10 ratings.
The most highlighting feature of this Vivo V23 5G is that it is “India’s first color changing mobile”. This color-changing feature is due to color-changing Fluorite AG Glass. it is an interesting feature and it seems as most of its users will be girls (as girls have more matching mania and probably it changes colors match to their outfits) than boys.
3D Curved Ultra Slim Display with 6.44 inches looks very premium due to the glass body. On the lower side a sim tray, speaker, and USB port are present. On the upper side words “Professional Photography” highlights the distinction of a 50 MP selfie camera with multiple other camera features. 90 Hz AMOLED display is provided. An in-display fingerprint sensor is provided that works well. Speakers are good in quality and provide a balanced sound.
Very premium, slim, and elite design so get 10/10 in this perspective.
Vivo V23 comes with a 50 MP selfie camera so its efficiency for high-end selfies and videos for personal memory or for blogging purposes is undoubted. As it comes with MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G processor which is the latest processor available so functioning is smooth and fast. Due to Funtouch OS 12 with the Operating system Android 12, multiple features are added. It is the only mobile with OS 12 available in this price range. Due to the ultra HDR setting, it is a good option for PUBG lovers and other game players as well. Due to the AMOLED display with 6.44 inches screen, it provides a good experience in daylight as well. Some extra basic app along with Netflix is available. It supports widevine L1 so full quality will be observed for videos and Netflix.
It has multiple options for customization according to your need and taste. Due to efficient processors, the use of different apps at a time is fast and convenient. Full-day battery time with wi-fi, games, and videos is another positive addition to its useability. This smartphone is also good for social media lovers, and snap chat lovers.
