vivo V20 is a beautiful-looking mobile phone. It’s a bit on the heavy side, but you would be hard pressed to tell just how much weight it adds. It’s slim and weighs just about 7.3 ounces (not too much, though), so that isn’t something I can say is plus. Other features includes: Handsets with a built-in screen protector. Also Transparent clear protective cover.
One of the most popular things about the vivo v20 is its ability to use OMA fingerprint technology. This means that the users can not only change their screen design but also lock/unlock the screen. OMA fingerprints are used for this because they are usually hard to write. There are two types of OMA fingerprint technology: Smart and Conventional. The OMA smart fingerprint technology seems to perform a little better.
The V20 has a funtouch os eleven interface, which is pretty standard for an smartphone these days. The good thing about the V20 is that it runs on android 11, so if you’re familiar with those platforms, you should have no problem using it. The only bad thing about the on-screen keyboard on the vivo V20 is that it is really small; it takes a while to get used to typing on the vivo V20. That aside, however, the in-display fingerprint scanner really works well and provides quick, instant results.
The battery life on the V20 was average at best, though it did come as close to the one in the HTC Evo Shift as I could say. With a full day of solid use, my battery life lasted all day and a bit more than that. While the battery life on this device is not anywhere near what I would consider excellent, it does feel substantial. In a lot of ways, the life of the in-built keyboard is what makes the vivo V20 different from many other devices in its price range; a full keyboard is a sign of a high quality phone.
As for the camera, the vivo V20 has a front-facing 8-megapixel camera that is quite decent. It isn’t anything spectacular, but it’s a decent camera to use. When taking indoor photos, I found that the life of the handset lasted about five hours before the battery started to die. When it comes to outdoor photos, however, the life span of the battery was short-lived, lasting about three hours before needing recharging.
In terms of software, the vivo V20 runs on android OS 4.4.2. The UI, though, is a bit less than ideal. The icons are small and choppy, and there is a tendency to randomly place icons in the main menu – something that will certainly get on the nerves of any HTC customer who has come to appreciate the standard Android experience too quickly. Overall, the UI is far from ideal, but I think we’ll all be able to forgive the manufacturer for omitting the fantastic Dual Camera Setup on the rear panel of the V20.
