Vivo Mobile South Africa sent me their latest launched smartphone along with a snacks box the video for the unboxing is already on my youtube channel and liked by many people. If you have not checked out my youtube channel please have a look and subscribe to the same if you want to see the experience of unboxing the mystery goodies as and when received. Let's get right to the smartphone in Sunset Dazzle colour variant which I received from the Vivo Mobiles South Africa. The first thing to notice is the back panel which really reflects the lights in various sunset like colours and how thin the phone is and its comfortability in your hands is just perfect. I totally fell in love with this amazing smartphone.
Secondly, the configuration of this smartphone is amazing with 8GB of RAM and 256 GB of ROM. The MTK Dimensity 800U processor (2.4 GHz Octa-Core) never feels like lagging behind in any regard from the equivalent Kirin or Snapdragon processors. I have used this phone extensively as my day to day device since I have received the same. I am totally in amazement with what an R9999 smartphone is capable of. The Funtouch OS 11.1 is fluid and makes the whole experience really nice of using this smartphone from Vivo mobiles. The power is efficiently used by the processor and never ever the smartphone felt hot while playing games or clicking photos or videos. Above all, it's a 5G enabled smartphone so if you want to use any 5G SIM card, then you can make it an internet powerhouse.
The Vivo V21 5G is a smartphone for people who love Selfies a lot. It has a lot of features built around making you look the good, better and the best version of yourself. 44MP ultra definition front camera offers enough clarity and Optical image stabilization to capture all the details of your hairs to eyelashes to teeth and above all your smile. The photo that comes out is sized around from 7 to 14MB so you can think of all the details that will be there. I was a fan of Vivo V50 which I reviewed last year even to the point that my wife wanted to have that smartphone forever. But this new version of V21 5G has beaten the front camera on Vivo V50 too which was of course a premium device and way above the V21 price range.
The design of the Vivo V21 5G will amaze you as to how thin this phone is - 7.29mm thin and weighs only 176 grams which makes it really suit your hands. The design has been kept as minimal as possible which makes it look extremely stylish and expensive. There is a notch on the front screen for the camera. The right side is without any buttons or openings. The top side only has a microphone, the left side has a volume up and down button along with a power button. The bottom side has Type-C charging port along with a microphone point and speakers slot. It also hosts the SIM card which duals as a SIM and a TF card reader to expand the memory further. The speaker is loud enough to enjoy the movie or music on the go. An earphone jack adapter is provided so that Type-C USB charging port doubles as a 3.5mm headphones jack.
To make you look good at night, the Vivo Mobiles has inserted a dual selfie spotlight instead of making the screen go white and flash as seen in other smartphones. Dual Selfie spotlight works like a charm and gives constant light from both ends of the smartphone front camera covering both sides of your face easily even if you are shooting videos. There are several other features like aura light, many kinds of filters, portrait light effects to up your Instagram game instantly using this smartphone. When you are in portrait mode in the camera, you get offered more features to play around with Style, Beauty and Bokeh (f1.0 to f16) settings. You can spend an unlimited amount of time playing with the perfection you want to achieve and the smartphone will be able to provide you that with its hardware and software built into this little nifty superpowerful gadget. Also to add fun to your selfies AR stickers are available in various categories and more can be downloaded too.
The rear camera has 3 AI camera setups including a 64MP OIS camera, 8MP multi-function camera (120 degrees wide-angle coverage) and 2MP super macro camera. These can be accessed via the Lens option that pops up on the screen when you are in photo mode. The Pro mode opens up a lot of professional options to manually control the camera on the smartphone. It gives you the power to enable histograms, take RAW images along with jpeg too. The shutter can be controlled via touch, voice and palm and all can be enabled. You can watermark your photograph with your own content or time or model of the smartphone. It will always be TheLife'sWay for me as I sometimes think how Universe granted me this name 9 years back when I was trying out different combinations of names possible for my blog.
The next thing to notice is the 33W flash charge 2.0 technology which charges the 4000mAh up to 63% in just 30 minutes of plugging into the power adapter. All the accessories form part of the package which is not the case for flagship devices as you will receive a wired earphones, power adapter, silicon case, sim ejector tool, Type-C charging cable and an earphone jack adapter. With a price range of around R9999 for the whole package, this smartphone offers something unique in the market. It offers a great replacement device if you want to up your game of photography with a battery that can easily last for more than a day, an operating system that is intuitive, a sunset dazzle coloured body that will make others jealous, fast charging to make it go an extra mile in case of loadshedding, 90hz display to attack those who want to kill you from the side during the shooting games online, fingerprint sensor to keep it all safe and secure, 128 GB ROM to never feel the space being full after all the 4K videos and photos, 8GB ROM to keep providing enough space to always go and install a new app to perform multi-tasking and so much more.
I never felt that I am not using a flagship device as I totally fell in love with this one named Vivo V21 5G and would recommend each and everyone who wants to buy a new device in this price range. The after-sales service of Vivo Mobiles is offering some of the best services in the South Africa market. You can register online directly from the smartphone pre-installed app called Vivo.com which makes it really great.
I received these amazing Snacks goodies at the virtual launch event of Vivo V21 5G which I shared on my Youtube channel. Also, I did one unboxing video of the smartphone too which you can check out here on this link below -
I hope you must have liked my review as much as I loved using the Vivo V21 5G smartphone. It's really a great device with so many features which are not available in any of the flagship devices from various other brands. Thanks again Vivo Mobiles South Africa for sending the same across and looking forward to the next launch events.
