The Vivo V7 Plus sports a large 5.99-inch IPS display that fits into the chassis of a regular smartphone with a 5.5-inch display. However, the resolution is only limited to HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels). There is also a 2.5D curved glass on the top that gives a premium look. Even with a 5.99-inch display, the device offers comfortable grip to hold. It offers 84.4% screen-to-body ratio and the side bezels are just 2.15mm thick.
24MP Selfie Camera
The 20MP + 8MP dual camera on the front of V5 Plus is now replaced with a 24MP single camera. It is accompanied with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, and soft LED flash. With the Bokeh Mode, the users can easily blur the background to just focus on the object or the person in the viewfinder. It comes combined with the Face beauty 7.0 algorithm that enhances the photos to looks better. The Face Beauty also works with video calling like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Viber.
The Vivo smartphones are known to offer Hi-Fi audio output and the same is continuing with the newly launched V7 Plus. There is a dedicated 32-bit AK4376A audio chip with built-in headphone amplifier that gives Hi-Fi audio output. Instead of using the basic earphones, the premium earphones can clearly give the difference in output. The Hi-Fi DAC are normally offered with premium smartphones. Recently, LG launched the LG V30 smartphone with Hi-Fi quad DAC to give clearer sound output.
