A smartphone may come with many frills, but if you are a true ‘musicophile’ all you need is a device that plays good quality sound. The ViVo V3 is one such device. It comes with an AK4375 Hi-Fi chip, which, is said to help in creating high fidelity sound quality, similar to cinematic DTS 7.1 standard, even with ordinary earphones like the one provided. We tried playing a few songs on this device and the audio was immersive with crystal clear sound. Sporting a light and slim metal-clad body, the V3 has a 5-inch screen comes with a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla glass and full 1280 x720p HD resolution. The screen size might seem small compared to other devices currently in market, but it’s easy to operate with one hand.
The 13 MP primary and 8 MP secondary cameras feature Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) technology and an LED flash on the rear. The company claims that it has incorporated dedicated a RAM memory for the camera, which would enable faster camera access and quicker photos. The smartphone comes with 3GB of RAM and runs on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, along with VIVO’s Funtouch OS 2.5, based on Google’s Android Marshmallow 5.1.
The V3 features a 360-degree fingerprint sensor at the rear, which was fast to recognize and easy to set up. The dual-SIM phone comes with support for 4G VoLTE. The internal memory of 32GB is expandable up to 128GB via micro SD card. Featuring dual charging engines, this device has a decent battery life with a 2550mAh battery. Priced Rs 14,980, the Vivo V3 is good value for music lovers.
