Vivo U20, As said by the Company… is Unstoppable But is it? So, Without any further Ado, let’s get started.
What do we want in a Smartphone these Days? Budget-Friendly with thousands of Features? Some folks need a Smartphone for Better Camera; some look for better Performance so they could Play High Graphics Mobile Games Smoothly, While some need an All-Rounder but what if they are not willing to Spend Much?
Not to forget Battery & Charging Plays an Important Role & one should never Ignore this as I enlist my best phones blindly on Battery.
Vivo U20 Camera Sample
The Camera is Something People Dream of when it comes to Vivo Smartphones. Although, Vivo has tried its best to impress Vivo lovers out there with features other than Camera still People looking for greater selfies consider Vivo Phones for sure.
Talking About the Camera here, Vivo U20 features 16MP+8MP+2MP AI triple rear camera with a Sony IMX499 sensor. Before I tell you about the image quality, here’s a look at the camera segment first: a 16-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.8 and PDAF support, an 8MP wide-angle lens, and a 2MP sensor. In Short, the U20 set forth weighty improvements as compared to Vivo U10.
To dig deeper into the subject of image quality, the landscape mode captures a lot of details and color replication is to the point too. Night Mode is not even Appreciable. Let me ask you one question. Do you guys also Shoot Videos?
Well, for a guy like me who shoots videos more often, a camera with Optical Image Stabilization is a must but this feature is missing in Vivo U20. Furthermore, the smartphone can shoot full HD videos.
Selfie is a thing which is a must for every folk out there and thus keeping this in mind, Vivo U20 Sports 16MP Selfie Camera which I think is Justified. Not to Mention, Vivo U20 outputs great selfies but is not bonzer in its segment.
Vivo U20’s Performance
Vivo U20 comes with 16.58 centimeters (6.53-inch) Screen with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. And the Device runs on the Android Pie v9.0 operating system with Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE octa-core processor.
Not to mention, This is the Cheapest Phone comprising SnapdrAGON 675 Processor. The Performance of this Device is athletic as you can play High Graphic Games like Asphalt 9, & PUBG as well. The Device Reported no heating Issue when used for hours.
Battery & Storage
As Vivo U20 comes with a Massive 5000mAh Battery, you need not worry about charging it again & again the same day for sure. Also, it’s 18W fast Charging Charges the Phone in Approx. 2 Hours.
Well, I ain’t the Fan of 18W fast charging, but it’s also a fact that this Phone is a Volcano in itself. Memory, Storage & SIM: 4GB RAM | 64GB internal memory expandable up to 256GB | Dual SIM (nano+nano) dual-standby (4G+4G)
Connectivity options on the Vivo U20 include Wi-Fi, Mobile Hotspot, GPS, Bluetooth v5.00, micro USB 2.0, FM radio, 3G, and 4G VoLte. Other Sensors on the device include the Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, Gyroscope. The Vivo U20 also supports face unlock.
The Vivo U20 is a Reliable Smartphone at this Price Unless you compare it with other Handsets by Realme or Redmi. Well, yes the Performance is excellent, the Battery is sufficient, and the cameras are useful in daylight.
But if you slightly increase your budget by 1k, you may end up getting Vivo Z1 pro or Realme 5 Pro which I think will be a Smart Move. Add to it, its pricing in India– Rs 10,990 for the base model, and Rs 11,999 for the higher-end 6GB RAM version.
At Last, I wanna say that “All That Glitters is Not Gold“.
