Our View on Vivo V17 Smartphone
The Vivo V17 comes out as sort of an all-rounder. The performance is good enough to handle all the latest apps and games. In fact, gaming performance was top-notch. The camera setup offers a lot of options, but only the primary 48MP lens is good to use in all situations. The rest are best used under ample light. The low light mode is good enough to get the brightness and the ambiance right, but the details are still missing. While the hardware remains quite competitive, it’s the software of the Vivo V17 that sets it back. FunTouchOS desperately needs a revamp and the UI is the only thing that acts as a deal-breaker in this phone. Otherwise, the Vivo V17 is easy to recommend.
