Vivo V15 Pro hands-on review


Vivo Philippines has just brought its latest midrange line-up in the country. And today we have the cream of the crop model — the Vivo V15 Pro.

Before we provide you our final verdict on the latest Vivo V15 Pro, we would like to give you a sneak peek at the company’s latest offering by sharing with you our initial impressions with it.


We’ve seen a lot of all-screen displays with ultra-thin bezels recently. This made the 6.39-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen on the Vivo V15 Pro a familiar and unsurprising look.

However, what I really adored like is the way Vivo placed the triple cameras on the back. All three sensors are located on a single island at the left side of the device, which provides a really distinct and modern look. All rear cameras are also adjacent to the 32-megapixel pop-up camera on the top.


Speaking of the camera, the Vivo V15 Pro brags a 48-megapixel primary shooter with a bright f/1.8 aperture. There’s also another 8-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide angle lens, and lastly, a 5-megapixel depth-sensor for the Bokeh effect.

My initial impressions with the 48-megapixel are pretty solid. Thanks to its wide aperture, the images look really bright and with great contrast, I have no complaints with the colors, too. Although, I feel like the details are a little soft for what it supposed to be. We’ll test it out more — and probably see if Vivo will be seeding a software update to handle this — for our full review.

What I really liked about the Vivo V15 Pro is its ultra wide-angle rear camera. If you saw our Huawei Mate 20 Pro review, you know how much I like the flexibility provided by this type of camera lens.

More subjects and elements can be fit in with a camera like this, which lets you take a photo of a wide scene without having to step back. As a bonus, you’d be also getting that fish-eye look, depending on how you frame the image.

The 5-megapixel depth sensor also did a decent job of mimicking the shallow depth-of-field effect, without the usual cutout effect that’s used to be a problem with these kinds of devices. Also, the 32-megapixel selfie camera takes decent selfies in great lighting. We’ll see how all these camera features hold up when we test it in more complicated scenarios for our full review.

Moving on, the Vivo V15 Pro features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Everything feels fast and responsive so far — apps load fast, the face unlock and fingerprint scanner unlocks the device fluidly, and the images we’ve shot above were taken without any noticeable delay.

We shall put the chipset’s full potential to the test, including its 3,700mAh, for our full and extensive review, which we’ll be publishing in the coming days.


Well, that’s it for now. If you want to learn more about this device before purchasing, then you might want to wait for our full review. But if you’re eager to get it already, then you can go ahead and pre-order yourself a Vivo V15 Pro from March 21 until March 29 for a price of Php23,999.
