Vivo V20 Review:
Build & Design
In relation to the price, Vivo V20 definitely appear premium with their aluminium sides as well as glass back. With a thickness of 7.88, Vivo V20 phone is one of the slimmest at present available at this price.
While V20 is not as small as compared to Pixel 4a as they come at 6.44 inch, it is nowhere near to the iPhone 11 Pro size. However, note Vivo V20 phone is easy to hold and use just with one hand owing to their slim and rounded corners.
Similar to the latest smartphones of present, Vivo V20 phone follows the edge to edge appearance. However, note it comes with a water drop style that appears to be a little dated than the punch hole camera look.
On flipping the smartphone, you will find a frosted glass. Rectangular camera module present in the top left side comes with 3 lenses.
While the phone features a 3.5 mm jack, it lacks wireless charging and waterproofing. However, other of their features would definitely make up for this one making you not miss this feature.
Speakers & Display
The Vivo V20 phone has a huge 6.44 inch AMOLED display touting a full HD plus resolution alongside HDR 10 compliant.
Size of the phone’s display is right, however there are several smartphones available in the mid range segment offering a bigger display. For instance, Galaxy M51 has 6.7 inch FHD plus AMOLED display.
Vivo V20 as opposed to stereo speakers rocks a mono speaker, which are loud and has a sound over average.
Moreover, note the smartphone has a fingerprint in display scanners, which is not disappointing as one can unlock their phone’s very quickly using them.
Battery & Performance
Vivo V20 is a mid range smartphone, which definitely shows. The phone has Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G processor that is paired with 1TB expandable storage and 8 GB RAM.
Though the chipset is not as powerful as Snapdragon 765G, it is still very fast.
The battery life of the phone is quite satisfying. It has a 4000mAh battery that is sure to last one complete day when connected to Wi-fi. The battery can definitely last longer if not used for longer hours in a day.
Also, note the smartphone shells a 33W charger that has the potential to fill the battery between zero and 100 percent in just less than 1 hour.
Next big highlight of the phone is that it has its own software. Vivo V20 is one of the first smartphones to be launched with Android 11 OS.
The good thing is that the brand Vivo has overhauled the UI with minimal preload applications from Vivo and other 3rd party developers.

Should you opt for Vivo V20 Phone?
Vivo V20 smartphone is definitely an impressive mid ranged phone. However, it is not perfect- the imperfect part is that Vivo with V20 has played it way safe and there exist not much dramatic difference of the phone with their predecessors.
While that is not a bad thing, given the excessive level of competition in regard to mid ranged segment phones like Galaxy M51, Pixel 4a, which are also available under the Rs 30,000 range, Vivo has done justice to the V20 model.
