Vivo V9 is officially the first budget smartphone in India to get the notch for display. Critics may argue about the design similarities with that of iPhone X, but we think Vivo V9 is one of the better devices under 25k in the country. Yes, it will compete with likes of Oppo F7 and Moto X4, but it does stand a chance. Here’s why you must buy this device.
- Effectively pricing. You can get Vivo V9 at TataCLiQ for just ₹22199, and additionally, there are more offers on selected bank cards. If you go by the features, this device is priced rightly, despite costing a tad more than F7 – its immediate competitor.
- Credible hardware. V9 gets powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor, which is coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal memory. For the average and above-average user, this is more than enough. We tried using the device for games like Asphalt and other regular social media calling and found no glitches.
- Awesome display. The 6.3-inch FHD+ display is one of the best features of this device and has resolution of 1080×2280 pixels. On the surface, the display offers incredible feedback even in sunlight. The aspect ratio of 19:9 is just incredible to say the least, and we love the iPhone X vibe for this price point. Well, the screen-to-body ratio is almost around 90%.
- Cameras that click the best photos. With a 24MP shooter on the front, you don’t need a better device to click photos. While there is no LED flash for the selfie one, we still got good photos in low light. On the rear, you have a dual camera setup – 16MP primary one and a 5MP secondary, making it better than F7, which just has one 16MP shooter.
Vivo V9 is a perfect device for the selfie lover, and we would recommend it to users beyond that. It offers good hardware for the price and we had no issues as we tried different apps at the same time. In the Indian market, where we have budget devices like Gionee S10 and Redmi Note 4, V9 is targeted for the more value-oriented buyer. We suggest that you check for the device online to get the best deals. Check for bank offers and EMI options – Rest assured, V9 is here to stay, and yes, you get the notch, a credible display and amazing cameras.
