Vivo V20: features
One of the biggest strengths of the Vivo V20 is its sleek and ergonomic design. Like phones, it is certainly one of the most beautiful around. At 171 grams and 7.8mm thick at its thinnest point, the V20 is good to hold and thanks to its unique color scheme, it looks good too.
The other big selling point of the Vivo V20 is its cameras. Of special note here is the main camera on the back which is a 64 megapixel Samsung GW1 lens paired with an 8 megapixel multifunction camera capable of super wide-angle click, bokeh and super macro shots. There is also a 2 megapixel monochrome lens too to add extra detail to the shots. Overall, this setup helps the Vivo V20 click some very impressive shots in both low and well-lit situations. The phone also offers a large 44-megapixel lens at the front which is housed on a specialized motor that can shift slightly to improve autofocus while clicking on selfies.
In addition to this, the phone also houses a huge 4000mAh battery which can be charged very fast using the device’s 33W fast charger.
