Chinese global technology business vivo Communication Technology Co. Ltd., also known as vivo, is based in Dongguan, Guangdong. Starting the journey in 2009, vivo creates software, online services, online services, and smartphone accessories. vivo V25 5G and V25e 4G are the latest addition to vivo 25 series lineup. These smart-looking smartphones feature color-changing design that helps them stand out from the crowd. Both phones got released in Bangladesh on 25th September. They come with their differences while sharing too many similar features.
Key Features of vivo V25 and vivo V25e
The vivo V25 and vivo V25e both are powerful mobile devices. Both devices, much like the vivo V25 Pro, have arguably high-end design elements.
When it comes to design, both phones resemble just the same. You get built front and back panels in these devices. The dimensions (159.2 x 74.2 x 7.8 mm) are similar for both devices. However, V25e is a bit lighter (183g) than its counterpart V25 (186g).
The corners are so elegantly cut that they seem like they might cut you. And since it's shaped like a brick, you can feel the millimeters that make up its thickness.

A fingerprint scanner is built right into the screen for both phones, and it performs quite well. Although this kind continues to give off a more premium feel than the side-loaded variety, there isn’t any genuine advantage to selecting this type over the traditional side style. However, this one is rather effective.
There is no headphone jack, although the sides are flat and reveal a large space where one might easily be installed. You can't add a microSD card, either. Both of these approaches will likely dissuade prospective purchasers who may otherwise be interested in the phone.
The only difference in the design area is that the V25 offers an extra color variation. You can get both phones in Elegant Black and Sunrise Gold colors; while the V25 also comes in a Surfing Blue hue.

The display portion has nothing unidentical between V25 and V25e.
The AMOLED display of the vivo V25 and vivo 25e is 6.44 inches and features a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The resolution is 2404 by 1080 pixels, which may seem peculiar but is very standard, and there is a teardrop notch at the very top.
There are panels with 120Hz available at roughly this price. However, unless you are moving from a phone that already has 120Hz, do not believe 90Hz is a significant step-down. In addition, it is probably essential to the phone's ability to have a reasonably long battery life. More will be spoken about it at a later time.

The contrast is excellent, and the colors are vibrant, both of which are characteristics that are almost assured with an AMOLED display. There is the regular color mode, the professional color mode, and the brilliant color mode. The first two are strong, but you can go with "professional." It has a wonderful appearance, giving the impression to your eyes of being more saturated than the sRGB color space, but on a mobile device, the sRGB color space seems somewhat subdued.
vivo claims that the display can reach up to 1300 nits. However, you won't see anything close to that number in practice. If you force the vivo V25 into its high brightness mode, which activates automatically when you are outside in intense sunlight, the screen reaches a brightness level of 780 nits. This makes the screen bright enough for comfortable usage outdoor.
On the back side of vivo V25, three rear cameras are available. It has a 64MP wide main sensor that features f/1.8 aperture and 0.7 nicrome lens. It's 8MP ultra-wide sensor comes with an f/2.2 aperture, 16mm wide and 120-degree field-of-view. Due to the 8MP resolution, those images don't stand up well under close inspection and frequently struggle to capture more intricate natural textures. The rear camera series also includes a 2MP macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture.

V25e has 3 sensors on the rear side. The 64MP main sensor and the 2MP macro sensor are the same as V25, the only difference is the ultra-wide sensor. The V25e’s ultra-wide camera is 2MP. Vivo's effective HDR optimization may provide instantly memorable shots, especially during the day. The V25e’s 2MP ultrawide lens doesn’t fall short of the ability to capture great pictures compared to V25’s 8MP.
Compared to the more expensive V25 Pro, the video functions are not much worse. With software stabilization at least somewhat successful, with the vivo V25 version, 4K video can still be captured at 30 frames per second.
Both vivo V25 and V25e can capture 1080p footage at 30fps. When you switch to 1080p capture, the Ultra stabilized mode becomes available. This drives the software stabilizing process with a much more drastically cropped view.

On the front side, V25 has a 50MP (f/2.0 aperture) selfie camera that performs well in all lighting conditions. Pictures are clear and clean, albeit not too detailed, in excellent lighting and in poor lighting. Like the rear camera, you can capture 4K images at 30fps, or 1080p images at 30fps.
The V25e supports a 32MP (f/2.0 aperture) selfie camera that provides good photos but is not as good as V25’s. The selfie sensor can shoot 1080p footage at 30fps.

The display and design of both phones are almost the same. The gaming power of the vivo V25e is a bit inferior to the vivo V25, and its camera does not perform as well in low light as the vivo V25.
