Verdict: Fairly priced product with spectacular performance and features.
The Vivo V3MAX offers top-notch features, encased in a premium body and is currently boasting about its product to be “faster than faster”. This leads us to think, this might very well be the latest mid-range beast in the market.
So how good is the V3MAX you ask? Well, it claims to have a much faster charging, faster finger-print scanner, faster shots and a few other. Here’s our take on it.
Platinum design will be the correct way to describe this amazing product. Why? It arrived in a normal white box with no graphics; only the logo was stamped on the front and sides of the box.
Once everything was calm, I reached for the V3MAX and I was blown away by the weight of this smartphone. It isutterly mind boggling at how lightweight the device was. Let’s get real here, who wants a heavy smartphone anyways, right?
Its outer body of the Vivo V3MAX is made up of metal unibody with the front display coated with a 2.5D Gorilla Glass. Though nothing revolutionary, it is still a good looking phone.
We now know that its sleek design is something I favour; the display equally excites me. The V3MAX has a 5.5-inch screen with 1920 X 1080 FHD display. I do have to say that the visuals arevivid, with no detail loss.If you were to play a 1080p video, you definitely will be ready to forgive this product, should you find faults in it.
Built with a 1.8GHz Snapdragon Octa-core processor, the smartphone runs seamlessly. While playing games with high graphics, the battery remained at a normal temperature. My hands weren’t burning by the end of it.
Despite the awesome performance, the battery life was not that big of a deal. At maximum usage, it lasts half-a-day while mid usage gives you a full-day usage.
Planted with an 8-megapixel front shooter camera and a 13-megapixel rear-camera, it takes less than one second to launch the function. At full zoom mode, images were clear but slightly pixelated – something to be expected when you go into digital zoom.
A Satisfactory Music Listening Experience
Why did I rate the music experience “satisfactory”? Simple: on high volume with its headset, yes I admit it is a nice experience but the bass is lacking and the speaker located on the bottom is only one sided instead of two.
