New Delhi, Nov 29: Launched 2-3 weeks back with a price tag of Rs 18,990, Vivo V7 has received a price cut of Rs 2000 ahead of New Year sales. Known for better selfies Vivo V7 sports 24MP selfie and 16MP rear camera. "With the launch of V7, we are offering consumers another compelling proposition featuring an excellent camera and powerful performance at a competitive price point," said Kent Cheng, CEO, Vivo India. Vivo has been riding on the success of its selfie-focused smartphones and V7+ too delivers impressive selfies. The camera produces images with "bokeh" effect sans a dual-camera setup. With bokeh, users can blur the background with sharper contrast and visual appeal of the subject. The device sports a 24MP selfie camera with "selfie softlight" which is a significant upgrade from 20MP front cameras on V5 Plus and V5s smartphones. An interesting addition to the camera is the "live photo" feature that is similar to what we saw on iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. The "live photo" feature creates a moving image instead of capturing a moment in time with a still photo. The user has to select the feature to capture an image with the moments just before and after the picture is taken having sound and movement. The camera interface is fairly simple and comes with handy modes such as group selfie, face beauty, HDR and portrait. The device, with a 16MP rear camera, sports dual antenna bands at the rear. The metal unibody design makes the phone extremely sturdy and feel premium. The power and volume keys are placed on the right with good tactile feel. A dual-SIM slot and a dedicated MicroSD card slot to expand memory up to 256GB are located on the left. The bottom of the device houses a speaker grille, a Micro-USB 2.0 port and a standard 3.5-mm audio jack. In terms of connectivity, the V7+ offers 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and GPS. The 5.99-inch IPS display (1440x720 pixels) offers decent sunlight legibility and colour reproduction. The screen is topped with a 2.5D curved-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection.
