Vivo V25 Pro 5G Review

Vivo V25 Pro 5G is worth buying if you only want a Vivo smartphone. The device has its Pros from Color Changing Back Panel to OIS Support. However, considering the price of the phone, it’s not up to the mark and it’s an overprice phone.

Vivo has done a lot of cost-cutting like there is no stereo speaker, okay-type processor, plastic frame, and bloatware in the UI. The company is more focused on the camera side but this time the cameras are also not as great as they are marketing.

Let’s go deeper and see what Vivo has offered in its Vivo V25 Pro 5G smartphone.

Display

The smartphone features a 6.56-inches FHD+ 3D Curved AMOLED Display with a 2376 x 1080 pixels screen resolution, 120Hz Refresh Rate, and 300Hz Touch Sampling Rate. It further has a 19.8:9 Aspect ratio and 92.70% Screen-to-body ratio.

The phone also has Widevine L1 support which means you can stream FHD+ content on OTT apps like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, etc. Also, it has HDR10+ support, so you can stream HDR content on OTT apps as well.

As the device has an AMOLED Panel, hence Vivo has included an In-Display fingerprint sensor to unlock the device using fingerprints.

The Vivo V25 Pro 5G has glass on the front and back panel while the frame of the phone is made out of plastic.

Coming to the design, the phone has a color-changing Flourite AG glass back panel that changes its color when exposed to direct sunlight to a dark navy shade. However, it’s limited to only the Sailing Blue color model.

Overall, the display of the phone is good and you will not face any issues with it.

Cameras

The Vivo V25 Pro features a triple rear camera setup with an LED flash in the rectangular module that houses a 64MP primary lens with f/1.89 aperture that has OIS, an 8MP ultrawide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2MP macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture.

There is a 32MP Selfie Camera Lens with f/2.45 aperture in the punch-hole design display. The rear camera record up to 4k videos at 30fps while the front camera can record up to 1080p videos at 60fps.

Now, Vivo is known for its camera but this time, Vivo needs to work on the camera. The videos come out well but sometimes there are some issues with dynamic range.

The 64MP primary lens captures good shots with good detailing and the colors also come out well but it tries to boost the colors of the images.

The 8MP ultrawide lens also takes some good shots in good lighting conditions but it suffers in low lighting or at night. Also, forget that 2MP lens as it’s added just for number and has no use in the real life.

Coming to the selfies, the 32MP lens captures some good shots and it’s worth the price tag. However, it tries to soften the images which some people don’t like.

Overall, the cameras of the handset are good and it’s not the best, specifically the rear cameras.

Performance

The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Mediatek Dimensity 1300 5G Processor which is paired with Arm Mali-G77 MC9 GPU for graphics.

The device runs on Android 12-based FunTouchOS 12 skin out of the box. It comes with up to 12GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 Internal Storage.

The Vivo V25 Pro also has extended or Virtual RAM availability. However, the Virtual RAM feature is a gimmick and it’s used only for marketing purposes and has no use in real-life, so forget about that.

Coming to the processor, there are many smartphones available in the market at the same price range that have Snapdragon 870 SoC or even Snapdragon 888 but Vivo has gone with Dimensity 1300 which is not a good thing.

However, the Mediatek Dimensity 1300 is a powerful processor and you will not face any kind of issues while playing games or using it in day-to-day life. But, at this price point, the phone should have a better chipset rather than a good one.

Overall, the performance of the device is good but is not that great considering the price.

Battery

The handset packs a 4,830 mAh Battery with 66W Fast Charging Support. Vivo has also provided an 80W Charger inside the box.

The MediaTek Dimensity 1300 is a power-efficient processor which means the battery will last for a day.

Overall, if you are a heavy user then you need to charge the device twice a day, otherwise, it will last for a day without any issues.

Audio

The Vivo V25 Pro 5G does not have stereo speakers, instead of that, Vivo has provided a single speaker on the bottom side without any stereo support.

The phone also does not have a 3.5 mm Headphone Jack, so you will either have to use wireless earphones or a Type-C to 3.5 mm converter to plug your wired earphones.

Overall, the device has a good audio quality and you will not face any kind of problems with it.
