Vivo V25 5G: Camera, battery, and more- Know the phone in 5 points

1/5 Vivo V25 5G Design and Display: The latest V25 5G gets the ability to react to Sunlight or UV rays and changes its color. However, the color changes only for a while (for around a minute or so). Also, the phone is being offered in two different color options, and to experience the change in its looks and even the formation of the patterns, you will have to opt for the Vivo V25 in the Surfing Blue color. The phone gets a boxy look, with a matte finish on the back and a glossy slender frame design. Coming to the display, with a 6.44-inch AMOLED FHD+ screen, the phone offers a great viewing experience. From colors popping out beautifully to great viewing angles, ample brightness, and contrast, the screen gets it all. The phone gets slim bezels and a refresh rate of 90Hz and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz. (Priya/HT Tech)

2/5 Vivo V25 5G Performance: Powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, the phone manages to tick all the boxes right with its performance. From decent gaming experiences to long hours of binge-watching, internet surfing, and more, all seemed smooth and seamless. The phone runs on FunTouch OS 12 on top of Android 12 and offers several personalizations and customization options. But what can bother you are the preinstalled apps like ShareChat, Moj, and Byjus, among others, and unnecessary notifications pushed by the browser app. But, the good part is these apps can be uninstalled as per your requirements.

3/5 Vivo V25 5G Cameras: The V25 is equipped with a triple rear camera setup supporting a 64MP primary sensor with OIS night camera; accompanied by an 8MP wide-angle and a 2MP macro sensor. The phone also sports a 50MP eye autofocus selfie camera. The images clicked in the daylight either with the front or the main rear camera are satisfactory and highlight every minute detail. However, pictures did get beautified and seemed a bit overexposed and enhanced, especially the ones clicked with the front camera. (Priya/HT Tech)

4/5 Vivo V25 5G Battery: With a 4500mAh battery, the phone can survive for around 2 days depending upon your usage. In other words, for extensive users, the phone can breathe a day without charge, while on normal usage it can even run up to 2 days. Vivo packs a 44W FlashCharger in the box along with the phone, which can charge the handset from 20 percent to full in about 50-60 minutes. (Priya/HT Tech)

5/5 Vivo V25 5G Verdict: Wondering if Vivo V25 5G is worth considering? The V25 5G is a decent smartphone that tries to offer almost everything you require from a phone in a mid-range segment (Rs. 27,999). With a unique color-changing design and advanced cameras to great battery life, the phone has a lot on the platter. However, Vivo could have offered a better chipset like the ones used in V25 Pro, or V23, thus enhancing the performance of the phone. Considering the price range, Vivo could have also gone with stereo sound or at least a dual speaker. (Priya/HT Tech)
