The bezel-less displays are the newest trend in the smartphone market and the Chinese handset maker Vivo was quick to board the train as well. Its first bezel-less display smartphone seems to come in the form of V7+, which also boasts of a loaded spec sheet. While the device feature a ton of loaded specs, it comes with its fair share of cons. Here is a brief lowdown of the device for those who are interested in the handset.
Why should you buy?
Bezel-less FullView display
The Vivo V7+ is the latest handset to join the crowd of the bezel-less smartphones with its 5.9-inch display on the front. While the display does sound massive on paper, due to bezel-less display the handset does feel compact in hand. The display resolution has been pegged at 1440 x 720 pixels, which is pretty decent. The display also comes protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for durability.
24-megapixel front camera
Since this handset comes from the makers of selfie experts, it is but natural for the smartphone to feature a powerful selfie camera. Vivo has outdid itself with the Vivo V7+ as it comes with a massive 24-megapixel snapper on the front panel. The snapper is also assisted by a sot LED flash for low light selfies.
For a good performance, the Vivo V7+ gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Cortex A53 processor, which is an octa-core processor mated to 4GB RAM. In terms of graphics, there is an Adreno 506 GPU that can handle any game or visual that is thrown at it. Also, the smartphone runs on Android 7.1 Nougat operating system.
Why should you not buy?
No Quick Charging
The device does come with a powerful 3,225mAh battery, which will easily see through a day. However, the battery is missing the support for quick charging, which means it will take longer than usual to charge.
The Vivo V7+ is definitely one of the better handsets available in the market at the moment. If you can overlook the quick charging, the device brings to you the most powerful selfie camera and infinit display in budget.
