With an in-show unique finger impression peruser and a sleek plan, the VIVO V11 is an incredible shocker
- Delightful structure
- Amazing selfie camera
- In-show unique finger impression peruser
- Disappointing programming
- Utilizations an obsolete small scale USB port
- You’ll need to import it
- What you have to know
The V11 is a 6.41in cell phone that has a fantastic structure and an in-show unique finger impression sensor. Within, the V11 highlights a mid-run Snapdragon 660 processor, an indented Full HD show, double confronting back cameras and it runs Android 8.1.
The fundamental issue is its UK accessibility – you’ll have to import it from China or get it through outsider venders, which isn’t perfect. What’s more, much like the leader Nex S, the V11 runs the Android overlay Funtouch OS 4.5, which can get irritating.
Cost and rivalry
It’s somewhat difficult to source the V11, however there are a couple of spots where you can get the telephone. Wonda Mobile has the 128GB model (which I have on audit) for £359. There are a couple of postings on eBay with costs beginning from £340 for the 64GB model – interior stockpiling aside, the specs are indistinguishable from the 128GB model.
With respect to its rivals, there’s the leader model, the Vivo Nex S at £550.
Structure and fabricate quality
The V11 is fantastically very much constructed. It’s additionally truly attractive, on account of its purple and blue “Cloud” shading plan. It’s fairly suggestive of Huawei’s “Morpho Aurora” conceal on the P20 Pro. That is a £800 telephone, so it’s extraordinary to see fascinating shades boiling down to less expensive handsets.
Around the back, there’s a double focal point camera and blaze. Flip the telephone over and there’s a volume rocker and power button on the correct edge, while on the contrary side there’s a 3-in-1 SIM plate. This enables you to utilize two Nano SIM cards (in double hold on) and extend the memory by up to 256GB through a microSD card.
At the base, there’s a descending terminating speaker, a 3.5mm earphone jack and a small scale USB port. I think that its a little odd that Vivo has decided on an obsolete small scale USB port – regardless it has quick charging abilities (at 18W) to fuel its 3,400mAh battery, yet its connector isn’t as advantageous as the reversible USB-C port.
The presentation at the front has a little divot or, as it’s officially known, an indented showcase. The unique mark peruser dwells a couple of centimeters from the base edge of the screen. Much like the Nex S, the V11 isn’t as quick as a back or front-mounted physical unique mark peruser, requiring an additional second to open. Furthermore, on the off chance that you miss the six to seven-second window where the symbol shows up once you get the telephone, you’ll have to press the power catch to cause it to return.
Vivo perceives that the in-show unique mark sensor won’t be as quick as a physical sensor, so the organization has tossed in Face Unlock, which works related to the in-show unique mark sensor to make the experience somewhat more liquid. Its facial acknowledgment is super-expedient, even with the Quick Recognition mode crippled by means of the telephone’s Face Unlock settings. Here, you’ll likewise discover the Screen Fill Light choice, which helps the screen’s splendor when you’re attempting to utilize Face Unlock under low encompassing light conditions.NFC and water obstruction are out of order. That implies it won’t endure a unintentional dunk in a pool and is unequipped for contactless installments.
The V11 has a 6.41in Full HD+ (1,080 x 2,340) Super AMOLED show. Therefore, the screen is unbelievably exact and clear. In the default show mode, the telephone covers 99.4% of the sRGB shading array, while likewise accomplishing an amazing 87.6% and 95.5% in the Adobe RGB and DCI P3 shading extents individually. It’s very amazing and, with an ideal difference proportion and profound dark tones, you’ll appreciate watching recordings and flicking through pictures on your telephone. Survey points are fabulous, as well.
Shading precision, in any case, isn’t the best with a normal Delta E of 4.11 – hues are more on the splendid side. It’s not something to be excessively worried about, however it’s simply worth realizing that the telephone’s showcase won’t be as exact as the Galaxy S8 or the Mate 10 Pro.
It likewise has an unremarkable pinnacle splendor – at 374cd/m², it won’t be as simple to see the telephone’s showcase under splendid encompassing light conditions. By correlation, the Galaxy S8 and the Vivo Nex S accomplish a pinnacle of around 569cd/m² with auto brilliance empowered.
Pressed inside is a 2.2GHz octa-center Snapdragon 660 processor with 6GB of RAM. The blend takes into consideration smooth performing multiple tasks and smart activities. Tragically, our typical benchmarking programming – Geekbench 4 and GFXBench – were both hindered by the maker.
Fortunately, the Nokia 7 Plus houses a similar processor and GPU chip and runs at a close indistinguishable goals (1,080 x 2,160), so we’ve accepted indistinguishable execution in the graph beneath. True execution on the two telephones is close indistinguishable, so it feels about right.
As you’ll see from the tables over, the V11 is marginally more qualified for strenuous assignments and gaming than the Moto G6 and G6 Plus that have the lower specced Snapdragon 630 to control them. It’s no counterpart for the Galaxy S8 or Nex S, nonetheless, which house the quicker Snapdragon 835 and 845 processors individually.
Battery life is amazingly noteworthy. At 17hrs 15mins in the Expert Reviews video once-over test, the V11’s 3,400mAh battery is a stage over its rivals. It outlives the Nex S by around 4hrs and close to pairs the battery life found on the Moto G6 – that is genuinely great.
The Achilles’ impact point of the Nex S was the product and, tragically, it stays set up for the V11. On the brilliant side, it comes with Google Play preinstalled, so getting your most loved applications on the telephone is less of an experience.
Funtouch OS 4.5 is still set up, however, and as irritating as regularly, feeling extremely unintuitive, particularly inside the settings menu. For what reason couldn’t Vivo simply utilize stock Android or give a choice to have the telephone running on a vanilla rendition of Oreo? There are a couple bloatware applications introduced, yet fortunately they can be uninstalled.
The default launcher is somewhat cumbersome, however this can be effectively changed by discovering one that works for you in the Play Store. Here, the Nex S had a very confused procedure that included getting a Chinese number or an open Vivo account – I’m satisfied to state that is not the case and I had Nova Launcher running on the V11 in a matter of seconds.
The V11 has a double back confronting f/1.8 12-megapixel primary shooter with PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus) and a f/2.4 5-megapixel profundity sensor. The outcomes are truly amazing.
In the picture beneath, the V11 gets brickwork and gets great detail seemingly within easy reach. In any case, it experiences being excessively dull, with subtleties are lost in the shadows, leaving a scene that feels somewhat dismal.
Vivo V11 back camera
Turn on HDR and the picture springs up. Contrasting the picture above, and the one underneath with HDR and the thing that matters is like a whole other world – in the event that you’ll pardon the play on words. It’s unmistakably more brilliant – despite the fact that, to a prepared eye, the V11 makes the scene marginally cleaned out and overdoes the dynamic quality of the picture. It looks practically phony.
By correlation, the Moto G6 and G6 Plus can catch a similar measure of detail, yet at the same time give a close ideal proliferation in the two hues and luminance.

In low-light conditions, the back camera is again outshone by the Moto G6. Here, shots taken on the V11 have picture clamor, however streak totally kills this and fortunately doesn’t demolish the scene by having a yellowish or somewhat blue blaze tone. Along these lines, on the off chance that you need to take low-light shots of items before you, I’d recommend turning streak on.
Plan insightful, the Vivo V11 is unquestionably a dazzling telephone and the in-show unique mark peruser gives significantly increasingly valuable space to the screen. It’s really smart, as well, and its fantastic selfie camera is a class above most contributions – the forward looking snapper is so regularly an idea in retrospect. It really offers something somewhat not the same as different telephones available.
Be that as it may, it’s a long way from immaculate. The back confronting cameras could be better, the general Android experience is hampered by Funtouch OS and, to finish it off, you’re taking a gander at a dark import to get it in the UK.
