The Vivo V15, reviewed by us, is pretty much lite variant of the great professional smartphone. So is it good? It all depends on a few factors. The first thing that determines its quality is the software experience. In short, does it deliver on expectations?
The Vivo V15, reviewed by us, is pretty much lite variant of the great professional smartphone. So is it good? All in all, yes. Vivo launched the V15 initially in India to bring the snap mode selfies to users who do not want to spend huge amounts on a handset. But with a little bit of tweaking and some smart advertising, the Vogue was able to introduce a whole new set of tools to use while using the handset.
The body of the vivo v15 is not vivo v15 dissimilar to that of the HTC Evo Shift, which was one of the first smartphones to adopt QWERTY keyboard. So just like the Evo, you can use the QWERTY keypad to launch various applications and apps. Apart from that, the entire body of the vivo v15 has a very similar material to that of the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. This is because HTC decided to adopt the Corning material for the body as it was already being used for manufacturing the iPhone 4S. In fact, the body of the vivo v15 has similarities with that of the iPhone 4 as it has a glossy finish.
Like the HTC Evo, the Nokia 8.1 also features a camera on the rear but unlike the iPhone which sports a larger, 5.5-inch camera, the Nokia 8.1 has a three-megapixel camera which is placed on the rear of the handset. So basically, the functionality of the nokia 8.1 is the same as that of the iPhone 4S. However, the low light recording feature which is a major selling point of the iPhone makes its debut in this smartphone. The low light recording feature allows the users to take better photos in lower light situations.
Another unique characteristic of the vivo v15 is the gesture recognition technology that it has. What makes this feature interesting is that it allows the users to take photographs and videos with the help of five interactive buttons namely, the home button, the menu, the touch screen and the camera. With the help of these buttons, the users can start the camera up, switch between cameras, zoom in and out and enter a different mode. Apart from the five interactive buttons, the handset also includes a small camera flash which can be found just below the touch sensitive buttons.
In conclusion, the Nokia 8.1 proves to be a commendable smartphone that delivers high quality images and videos. However, the Oppo Easia really impresses with the way it delivers its multi functional features at low light conditions. In short, the two phones are very much similar in terms of looks and performance but theokia 8.1 really comes out on top when it comes to ease of use and ability to record videos and pictures in low light conditions.
