Vivo V23 Pro Review
In the previous year the sub-Rs. 40,000 smartphone market has become overcrowded, with a variety of choices to pick from. The majority of these phones are premium models and are also “value flagships”, as they typically offer top-of-the-line performance and produce superior images than mid-priced and lower-priced phones. The low cost (compared to flagship phones) typically means that features like the IP68 certification or wireless charging are given the spotlight, but we’ve seen few instances of exceptions.
The Vivo V23 Pro Because of the pricing, the Vivo V23 Pro appears to have switched to the high-end market. It begins at the cost of Rs. 38,990. This is roughly the equivalent of Rs. $10,000 more than Vivo V21. In comparison to the earlier Pro model, called the V20 Pro launched back in 2020 The V23 Pro features several hardware enhancements, such as a rear camera with 108 megapixels as well as a front-facing camera with 50-megapixels and a front-facing LED flash that can be used for selfies. Is the Vivo V23 Pro a worthwhile purchase from the V20 Pro? V20 Pro, or does the rival offer a greater price? Let us gonna search.
Vivo V23 Pro Pricing
The base version that I was given to review, comes with eight GB of memory and 128GB in storage. It costs around Rs. 38,990 in India. The highest-end model has twelve GB RAM as well as 256GB internal storage and costs the price of Rs. 43,990.
Vivo V23 Pro design
This Sunshine Gold finish that I got is adorable out of both. The back glass is coated with a special paint that transforms color in the presence of ultraviolet (UV) sunlight. The phone looks to have a gold-colored finish from the inside, however, when exposed to intense sunshine, it turns to a brilliant blue. If you use V23 Pro V23 Pro indoors, you may see the hidden blue color if the back of the phone is in the direction of the light source of UV. The reactive layer will keep its blue color for a couple of minutes after the phone has been taken indoors, and after that, it changes gradually to gold. It’s a clever trick and works great. If this effect doesn’t appeal to you The Stardust Black option has a simple matte black look.
The back is part of Vivo V23 Pro’s back panel. Vivo V23 Pro’s back panel is constructed of fluorite AG glass that has a matte finish that performs a great job of blocking fingerprints. This rear panel is similarly curved all across right and left edges, comparable to the top panel’s curved-edge glass. The phone features a thin polycarbonate frame. It has a thin appearance. It is also delicate looking yet is sturdy enough to be used regularly.
Vivo V23 Pro specs and OS
Vivo V23 Pro uses the MediaTek 1200 processor, which we’ve seen earlier in more affordable smartphones like the Poco F3 GT and the OnePlus Nord 2. This isn’t the most efficient SoC in this market in the present. It is the V23 Pro does not have an option for expanding storage and could be a detriment to those who prefer it. It has two Nano-SIM slots and the phone is compatible with 5G radios that have dual 5G standby. In addition to the normal Gps satellites, the phone supports Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ac. It comes with a battery of 4,300mAh which can be quickly charged with the included 44W power adapter.
Vivo V23 Pro Performance
The Vivo V23 Pro performed as we expected it to in our tests for benchmarks. These numbers are comparable to mid-range phones and are less than the numbers you’d expect from comparable devices sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC like those running the Realme GT or the iQoo 7 Legend.
Vivo V23 Pro cameras
If you are looking for a stylish smartphone The Vivo V23 Pro is surprisingly loaded to the max with camera capabilities. Both the cameras can be used for recording in 4K at 60 frames per second. The front camera can also support HDR video recording and comes with two flash units with LEDs. There are three sensors on the back and two cameras looking front. There’s a primary camera with 108 megapixels and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a macro 2-megapixel camera in the rear.
The camera’s front-facing setup comes with an autofocus 50-megapixel primary as well as an ultra-wide-angle camera of 8 megapixels for selfies in groups. The camera’s interface is well designed and provides easy access to the most important options via a menu at the left-hand corner (when the camera is held horizontally). Another thing to bear to keep in mind is that many of the features for video including Steadiface or Super Night, are limited to 30 frames per second at 1080p. HDR video is restricted to 30fps (1080p as well as 4K) and Super Stabilisation mode lets users record 1080p at 60fps.
If you’re looking for an ultra-light and slim smartphone or looking for the most up-to-date version of Android, The Vivo V23 Pro could be appealing. Its color-changing back panel is distinctive, and it’s also one of only a handful of phones that have curved edges within this class. But, it’s not the best choice ideal for everyone, but especially for those who need top gaming performance and long battery longevity.
