The Vivo v23 is set to succeed the brand’s previous models as the best selfie-centric smartphone with a pair of front-facing cameras with a dual-tone spotlight flash that would make it a favorite for selfie enthusiasts along with content creators. 

However, history has proven that having a good selfie camera doesn’t mean a smartphone is the best among its rival smartphone models in the mid-range market, so are the rest of the specs worth your money? Read on to find out.

Impressive Features With a Few Letdowns

The Vivo v23 price in Pakistan is “99,999” PKR. At this price tag, the mobile is available in two beautiful colors: Sunshine Gold and Stardust Black. On the other hand, the RAM and internal storage of 8GB and 128GB undeniably seem so mediocre.

Display and Design

One thing you will always be satisfied with is the design of the Vivo smartphone. Similarly, in V23, the ultra-sleek design, matte back finish, and lightweight give the user an amazing hand feel. In addition, A UV-reactive coating on the Sunshine Gold model allows the rear panel to change from a golden hue to a turquoise color whenever exposed to sunlight. 

Matte finish provides great resistance from smudges and greasy stains, which otherwise ruin the entire outlook of the smartphone. 

The 6.44-inch display screen offers AMOLED FHD+ resolution with a fast refresh rate of 90Hz. The display is HDR10+ certified, which can deliver enhanced color output for a more immersive and realistic viewing experience on the phone with the same vibrant and vivid results under bright lighting settings.

Impressive Camera Quality

At the rear, you can see a triple camera setup with a 50MP main camera, two secondary cameras, an 8MP ultra-wide angle, and a 2MP macro lens. Considering the V23’s price, it’s not a true flagship model, and its main camera can take decent photos in bright and low-daylight environments.

For example, the colors of an image vibrate well with its characteristic color saturation. Secondly, the background is very impressively separated from the object in focus. Thirdly, photos taken in bright scenarios show no noise and no pixel cracking, so the results are very natural yet pleasing.

And lastly, it has a reliable night mode feature that helps improve the scene’s overall exposure, which boosts the scene’s brightness and enhances shadow details in darker regions of the photo.

However, on the other hand, the ultrawide and macro cameras give an under-competent performance. The front and back cameras show a reliable zoom system for close-up shots and video shooting quality.

The front camera, backed by 50MP, being a selfie-centric smartphone, surprisingly clicks selfies that look even better than selfies taken by more expensive flagship phones. Thanks to its latest feature AI Extreme Night Portrait, colors stand out with plenty of detail even in low-light environments.

Mediocre Processor and Battery

The V23, powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset with an integrated 5G modem, is a high-tech option for multitasking or gaming. Also, overheating will not be a problem.

The V23 runs on a 4200mAh battery capacity with moderate usage of the handset, and you can get the battery to last for more than a day. Also, the 44W fast charger support is impressive, as you can charge the phone from 0% to 100% in less than 60 minutes.

Final Verdict:

From the processor and performance point of view, Vivo V23 is undoubtedly a good phone, but its camera features take the bar to the next level.
