Design and Display:
The Vivo V9 has a notch on top of its screen, which gives it a look similar to the iPhone X. On the rear, it gets a fingerprint scanner and the dual cameras are vertically aligned. However, one of the major disappointments is that the V9 has a plastic body instead of a metal build. The phone is available in two different colours: Gold and Pearl Black.
As mentioned earlier, the display has a notch and there are minimum bezels on all sides. The screen spans 6.3-inches and produces a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, which makes it a FullHD+ display.
Cameras in the Vivo V9 are quite impressive. The phone has got a superb 24-megapixel camera on the front for clicking selfies. It is further enhanced via software features that the brand offers inside its camera app. On the back, there is a dual-camera setup bearing a 16-megapixel sensor and another 5-megapixel sensor. This setup will allow you to click portrait mode pictures and much more.
Performance and Storage:
The Vivo V9 runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 which is decently powerful when combined with 4GB of RAM. You can't expect a blazing fast performance though but everyday usage shall be pretty fine. It runs on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box but is skinned with Vivo's own Funtouch OS which might not please everyone. On the storage front, the phone gets 64GB of internal storage but it is expandable via a microSD card. Since there is a dedicated microSD card slot, you won't have to compromise on the second SIM.
Battery and Connectivity:
The Vivo V9 rocks a 3260mAh battery unit that is averagely sized and will get you a day at most with full charge. The brand has decided to opt for a Micro USB port instead of a USB Type-C. It gets a 3.5mm audio jack and all the other connectivity options like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 4G VoLTE are offered as well.
