The Vivo V17 packs in great features for a mid-range smartphone. The unique diamond-shaped housing for the quad cameras at the rear and the dewdrop notch instead of the waterdrop notch adds a stylish premium look to the design of the phone. Under the hood is an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage onboard running on Android Pie v9.0 powering the Vivo V17. The phone features a Full HD+ 6.38 inch AMOLED display and is fuelled by a decent capacity 4500 mAh battery.

The device features an in-display fingerprint scanner and hardware that seems good for heavy users and gamers.

The first thing that will catch your eye on the Vivo V17 is the immersive 6.38 inch AMOLED display with the dew drop notch at the front and the unique diamond-shaped quad-camera housing at the back. Both these add to the styling aspect of the phone design. Vivo V17 comes in two colors – Cloudy Blue and Blue Fog. The fingerprint reader is built into the display. The power button and volume control buttons are placed on the side. The bottom has the speakers and the Type-C connector at the centre for charging the battery and USB connectivity.

 

Vivo has managed to package the phone compactly into a body dimension of 159.2mm x 75.1mm x 8.6mm weighing 187g. The Vivo V17 is comfortable for one-hand operation and also does not feel heavy to carry around.

The Vivo V17 has a 6.38 inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display. It delivers a high resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels giving an incredible viewing experience. The sharpness and clarity are further enhanced by the 404 PPI pixel density. The front camera is featured in a dew drop notch to give an unobtrusive view. The thin bezels makeup to give a 90% screen to body ratio and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The display is protected from stains and scratches by Corning Gorilla Glass.

Performance on the Vivo V17 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa-Core processor coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage expandable up to 256GB. Vivo V17 manages to handle day-to-day tasks with relative ease. Overall, the performance of the phone is reasonably good even with graphics rendering on the 6.38 inch AMOLED high-resolution display. The UI is fluid and seamless with FunTouch OS V9 running on latest Android Pie v9.0

 

The Vivo V17 is equipped with all standard connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, 2G, 3G, 4G, VoLTE, GPS, USB Type-C, Dual Band, etc. It also supports NFC in addition to the above.

The phone comes with a quad-camera setup on its back – a primary 48MP camera, a supportive 8MP camera, 2MP, and 2MP lenses, further assisted by a lot of inbuilt features and settings. The phone also has a 32MP camera in front, which captures superb quality selfie pictures and portraits which you would love to have. This phone can click good and detailed photos in proper light conditions. In addition to that, the phone captures reasonably decent pictures in low light situations, as well.

 

For the battery, the Vivo V17 has a 4500mAh Li-ion battery that can last for an entire day on a single charge. It comes with fast charging support, so your phone survives for the whole day. For light to moderate usage, the battery can last even over a day. However, when used for graphics-intensive and power-intensive tasks like gaming, video streaming, etc., you might have to charge the phone at the end of the day.

The Vivo V17 is an excellent combination of great looks and good performance. The quad-camera setup on the rear in the diamond shape will surely become the talk of the town. Besides the design, the cameras are the highlight of this phone, making it a great choice for photography enthusiasts. The crisp and sharp display also adds to the stylish look of the phone. The large internal storage capacity, Octa-core processor, huge RAM come together to deliver good performance in multitasking and gaming without lagging issues. The 4500 mAh battery backup keeps the phone going for the entire day.

 

Vivo V17 has managed to put together all the great features of a smartphone and made a premium package in the mid-range smartphone segment.
