The Design

I’ve seen Vivo Mobile phone before and it’s very sleek and gold-y that time because they have recently released the gold Vivo V3 Max. And just now they have released a Rose Gold colour of their Vivo V3 which will surely catch a woman’s heart because of its sophisticated and girly colour.

The body of V3 is a very stylish zircon sand-coated metallic unibody and 2.5D glass edges and metal frame. You can also see at the back their metal logo which is very sleek.

By the way it’s a mid-range mobile phone, but has a very sophisticated and sleek look.

The Display, User Interface and Apps

Vivo V3’s display 5” IPS OGS LCD (1280×720) and what’s more interesting is that when I go outside the brightness level will automatically adjust and it will adjust again when indoor. The user interface is smooth and very liquid-y and the screen is somewhat looks like iOS. There are also apps that very unique to Vivo V3 like: Easy Share and Compass.

The Vivo experience

I enjoyed using Vivo for 2 weeks and what I really like about it is that in just .1 seconds I open it up using the finger scanner. I also love the colour which is very girly and sophisticated + it has a case with ever package which is very cool. Then my youngest drop the question would you change your mobile brand to Vivo?

I told him that if I have a chance to use it why not, but I can have it or I can use for my second phone. The camera is very tricky for me since I am so used to my personal phone, but I love how Vivo strive to keep up with the leading android phones in the market and love how to manage to up bring their game specially that Filipinos have fear of China made phones. Vivo V3 is just a mid-range phone what more can Vivo do if they offer a much higher and much sophisticated phone? I really like that they can do screen like of the iOS. The battery is not for a heavy user like me though their better is just 2,000 mAh for this unit.

Overall, I would recommend this phone to people who wants to have a sleek and sophisticated phone which will offer them affordability and a very usable phone. This is priced at 11,900 and now they have discounted it for less P2,000 so grab one now because it’s just P9,900!
