The New Vivo V7 

Vivo is a young leading global smartphone brand known for its commitment in bringing advanced technology and stylish products to their consumers. They are thrilled to unveil the newest offering in the brand’s line-up of top-of-the-line smartphones–the Vivo V7.

The Vivo V7 is the newest addition to the V series of phones that promises to be a powerful shooter with a ALL Screen Display. Equipped with advanced technology, this phone is known for its exceptional photography features, screen quality and the overall product design. An exceptional featured is Vivo’s fingerprint 24MP front-facing camera.

A Travel Phone

The Vivo V7 is a great travel phone because it fits right in your hand and pocket. It is so handy because it is the result of Vivo’s on-going effort to understand the needs of today’s young people. Their interests include culture, food, and travel, which enable them to take nice photos.

I should know. I currently use the Vivo V5s and honestly, I no longer use my mirrorless camera because my Vivo phone already does the trick.  How much more if it’s the V7?

The Vivo V7 is handy and convenient. It easily fits your hand and your pocket (both literally and figuratively).

You see, for several months I did not have a camera because my previous unit conked out and could no longer be fixed. But we didn’t have enough budget to buy a replacement camera right there and then. So my solution? I brought along my Vivo V5S whenever I visited Bacolod restaurants and needed to take photos of food. I am so happy with the turn out.

With the V7, you will be able to take photos anywhere. You can expect clearer, natural-looking selfies with rich-colored backdrops of your favorite destination. The V7 reinforces Vivo’s leadership in selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera that allows crystal-clear selfies. With my Vivo V5S in the past, I got the perfect selfie. Now, you get the much clearer selfie with the Vivo V7.

Vivo V7 bezel-less all-screen display

Much like its predecessor, the V7+, the V7 features a bezel-less all-screen display. The V7’s  5.7-inch all screen display offers 12.5% more visual display area. Compared this to traditional 16:9 screens. The new V7 lets users show off their individuality and enable self-expression on a clear and big screen.

Composed of Joao Constancia, Niel Murillo, Tristan Ramirez, Russell Reyes, Ford Valencia, Boyband PH entertained Bacolodnons at the Vivo V7 unveiling. It was held last November 18, 2017 at the SM City Bacolod Event Center North Wing. The boy group led the occasion as the V7 goes public for the first time. Prior to the grand launch, Boyband PH joined a roster of bloggers and media personalities at the Vivo V7 press conference.

Vivo V7 Price

The introductory price of Vivo V7 is only P14,990, despite the premium features that you are getting. You will be happy to get this phone at an easy price. Moreover, it is so convenient that you would be happy to bring it anywhere.

What Hubby Has to Say

My hubby is the tech geek between us, so he has this to say about the Vivo V7.

Unlocking Your Phone with Your Face

The way I put it into words sounds a bit silly. But once you’ve tried it and realize what it does, you will be astonished that this feature is already in a phone. The best thing is, it is very affordable. Face Access is a software developed by Vivo to scan multiple areas of the face to unlock the phone. It identifies the biological facial features–a feature that amazed me when I see them in my favorite sci-fi movies.

Face Access works together with the innovative Raise to Wake technology of Vivo. Your phone wakes up the moment you pick it up. Then Face Access kicks in to unlock the phone upon recognizing your face. I witnessed it first hand, unlocking in the split of a second.

Multitasking with Your Phone Has Been Leveled Up

I prefer using my PC to accomplish digital tasks more than my phone for the main reason that with my PC, I can multitask in it. But one day phones will level up to do the same. And Vivo is not behind with this innovation.

Smart Split 3.0 keeps your movie marathon from being interrupted when a call or messages come in while your movie is reaching climax. With a gesture, you can split the screen of your phone and access other apps on one part of the screen. All that while the movie keeps playing on the other half.

Speaking of no interruptions, the Game Mode feature is great for intense gamers who on the edge of winning the game. This keeps the incoming calls and messages from disrupting the game. Without it, when a phone call comes in while playing, it can sometimes crash the game. Or if not, the distraction causes you to miss some strategic play.

App Clone

App clone is another innovation for multitaskers. You can install only one app per phone right? And if you maintain an account for personal use and business use, you have to log off and log in between accounts, right? And there is nothing you can do about it, right? Wrong.

With App Clone, you don’t need to carry multiple phones for business and personal use. Do away with the hassle of switching between accounts by logging off and logging in.

Hi-Fi Sound Missing in Most Phones

I am a music lover. And I like listening to music. But music is no fun if the quality of the sound is just not there. Vivo likes to equip their V series phones to play rich music with their Hi-Fi audio chip. AK4376A is an upgrade to AK4376, which is now in the Vivo V7. While the latter has impressed many audiophiles, the upgrade excites them more.

Vivo V7 Conclusion

In conclusion, by keeping true-to- life color and contrast and a clear background at all times, V7 allows users to express themselves truly anytime, anywhere. Don’t just take my word for it. Head on to the nearest Vivo Concept store and try out the new Vivo V7 in order to fully appreciate its features.
