Description

The Vivo V9 Pro is a modified version of Vivo V9, though it may not look like it. Priced at Rs. 16,540, the Vivo V9 Pro comes with some necessary changes that will keep it active.

 

The Vivo V9 Pro packs a bit of grunt which goes beyond what the Vivo V9 had under its hood. Plus, the phone keeps a good juice pack to pair it up. However, the phone is suitable for power packets only since it drops in the camera quality, even demoting from the Vivo V9.

Highlights

The Vivo V9 Pro will not surprise you if you have been actively following Vivo V9, it has a few pros and cons:

 

Pros

  • The phone comes with a potent processor which is blazing fast and can keep its own even when put under intensive app use.
  • The Vivo V9 Pro comes with a massive battery that can give you more than a day’s worth of juice.
  • The phone has speedy face recognition.

 

Cons

  • The Vivo V9 Pro comes with a redundant design, similar to Vivo V9.
  • The Vivo V9 Pro has weak sets of cameras.

 

The Vivo V9 Pro is a qualified phone in terms of performance but struggles in the camera department. It can be recommended phone for power seekers since it comes with both good battery and processor.

Expert Opinion

The  Vivo V9 Pro pushes in the performance department but pulls back with the cameras, thereby coming as just a power-packer without the matching photography capabilities.

Display

The 6.3-inch IPS display with a full-HD+ resolution. The bezels present around the screen are quite thin, but it does have a thick chin. However, the phone remains quite bright and vibrant. It can even be used outside without a problem. The viewing angles are quite decent, so you can spot the phone from extreme angles too. So, if you want, you can watch movies on this handset, and it will give you an immersive experience.

Design

The Vivo V9 Pro almost looks like the V9. It is a sleek model with curved sides that make it easy to hold. The phone weighs around 150g, which is quite decent – neither too light to seem flimsy nor too heavy. The phone is of the plastic build. The bottom of the phone hosts the headphone jack along with a micro USB port. The top, however, remains quite bare. In general, the phone does give out with a rich look. It even has a fingerprint scanner which works fast too.

Performance

The V9 Pro arrives with a Snapdragon 660 processor paired with 6GB RAM. The processor is quite speedy. The fingerprint scanner is quite speedy as well, and its speed is only seconded by the fast Face Unlock. The apps run smoothly on this set without any lag. Multitasking is fast and fun. There is no case of lagging in case of exciting games too. The loading time of games is quite fast as well. The efficient processor shows its power in the benchmark scores too, getting around 5486 points on Geekbench.

Camera

Vivo Pro has gone for a 13MP camera along with a 2MP depth sensor which is a downfall from the 16MP and 5MP combo of Vivo V9. The selfie camera has also gone down from 24 MP to 16MP. Hence, the photos became a hit or miss. In daylight, the images appear bright but zooming in, the details started to lose their lunch. The macros were good, but the focus took time to stick on the details. Edge detection was quite unreliable too. Low-light performance was abysmal, with the images turning out to be grainy. Selfie camera performance was similar manner. Though in the daylight, the selfies came out well, low-light selfies were grainy. You’d require the help of a screen flash for better low-light selfies.

 

Video recording was maxed out at 1080p for both front and rear camera. V9, on the other hand, could record 4K too. There is no stabilisation, and so, you get jerky footage.

Battery

The Vivo V9 Pro comes with a 3260mAh battery. It is quite adequate juice pack which keeps chugging for about 10 hours and 8 minutes in an HD battery loop test. During gaming, battery drain was kept low – playing games like PUBG for half an hour, using Google Maps, and video streaming found the battery saver start up at 9 pm. Lighter use can keep it alive for more than a day. All in all, the battery is quite efficient for the phone and will not give you the dreaded battery anxiety.

Verdict

Vivo V9 is a hit and a miss. It comes with a great processor and RAM for brilliant multitasking. However, it goes down on the camera department delivering a poor photographic experience. In the design area, both V9 and V9 promise the same. If you want performance from your phone, then V9 Pro is the phone to go for. Otherwise, V9 is your ideal match if you are a photographer.
