The Vivo V7 features a 5.7-inch IPS screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a HD+ resolution. Touch response is good and so are the viewing angles and colours.
The body is slim and light due to the plastic used, but it feels sturdy. It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, and it comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
It uses Funtouch OS 3.2, which is based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Media and app performance is good but the OS has a bit of a learning curve and feels a bit dated now. Battery life is also good, and the 3000mAh battery easily lasts an entire day.
The front 24-megapixel camera captures good selfies but the rear 16-megapixel shooter doesn't allow continuous autofocus, which is disappointing.
