Full Review of Vivo V21e
Look and Feel
In respect of the design, the Vivo V21e is quite elegant. The front is gorilla glass with around 83.5% screen-to-body ratio. It means the screen property is huge. The bezels and chins are small as the phone feels marvelously light-weighting, just 171g. The phone keeps a dimension of 161.2 x 74.4 x 7.4 mm, which is absolutely slim. Users won't find any inconvenience in handling the phone.
The build quality of the Vivo V21e is premium. The back has a giant triple camera housing. The matte-finished back is fingerprintaholic. It means, to protect it from the stain of the fingers, users have to use a back cover. The optical fingerprint sensor is located at the bottom of the phone, and the sensor is highly responsive. The dual-SIM slot also has room for a micro-SD card.
The Vivo V21e comes with a 6.44-inch full-HD AMOLED panel. It maintains a display resolution of 2400 × 1080p and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The overall configuration and screen performance is good. The pictures and videos look vibrant, clear, and colorful. However, Vivo enthusiasts may find it a little less than the one that came with Vivo Y73.
The V21e’s display has HDR10 support that brings an extra level of quality to the pictures displayed. Vivo has given a 60Hz refresh capacity in the Vivo V21e. It might sound a bit low, but it still makes the phone considerably touch responsive. The device also has a capacitive multitouch function. With 430 nits of brightness and 408ppi density, the phone shows up great even in broad daylight. The display will be an average yet decent experience for the users.
The rear camera panel houses a three-lens setup which includes a 64MP wide-angle lens, 8MP ultrawide angle lens, and a 2MP macro lens. The 64MP Ultra HD camera delivers explicit photos. It can take great photos in bright light and also in the nighttime. The low light captures are better than that of other same-budget phones. It's because the camera setup has installed a night mode that lessens the noise amount and helps lenses to add more details to the pictures.
The 8MP ultrawide lens does its job quite well when it comes to detailing and sharpening the long-range shots. The framing and focusing can be handled comfortably while taking shots from a considerable distance.
Users will also get satisfactory close captures. Thanks to the 2MP macro lens that subtly depicts pixel to pixel details. They won't face it even after zooming in multiple times.
As marketed, the Vivo V21e has given a special focus on the selfie camera to provide users the experience they long for. The 44MP ultra HD lens employs autofocus technology to capture every moment with vivid clarity and near-real quality.
The autofocus selfie camera has a zooming range from around 15cm to literally unlimited. It promises to deliver high-quality pictures regardless of the distance. The eye-tracking autofocus is to offers sharp pictures while capturing moving or static objects. The front camera also has an upgraded super night capture option with multi-frame optimization and several layers of exposure to confirm better quality pictures taken in a low-light environment.
Performance, Software & UI
The power given by the robust Qualcomm SM7125 Snapdragon 720G that comes with the Vivo V21e is relatably great. The processor has 8 cores that provide up to a 51% performance boost compared to the previous Snapdragon versions. Along with the powerful GPU Adreno 618, the processor gives a super-speed experience.
Vivo has implemented a RAM enhancement technology that lets users extend 3GB of RAM capacity. Added to the default 8GB RAM, extended RAM technology offers a completely lag-free performance. Mobile gamers will find the feature extremely handy. Games, regardless of the configuration and resolution, run smoothly.
In terms of software, Vivo has used the latest version of Android. It keeps the overall maneuvering process sleek for the users. In the sensor categories, fingerprint, accelerometer, compass, and proximity will be found. A USB Type-C and 3.5mm audio jack have also been given.
Battery and Charging
A lithium polymer non-removable 4000mAh battery has been presented with the phone. The battery is of the same capacity as the non-variant. It is considered quite decent in the present Android sphere, especially at a similar price tag. In any situation, the battery of the phone plays out great as users can spend a full day on a single charge.
Apparently, Vivo V21e arrives with a 33W fast charging capable of reviving the battery from 0 to 72% in just half an hour.
Price of Vivo V21e in Bangladesh
Only a single variant of the Vivo V21e featuring 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM is now officially available in Bangladesh. The official price for the phone is now BDT 26,990.
Vivo V21e is undoubtedly a robust handset. Especially with the versatile 64MP and 44MP camera set up and Qualcomm 720G processor are some strong points that play in favor of the phone. Again, the battery capacity should be a bit powerful. Altogether, considering all the aspects, the Vivo V21e would be the best choice for gamers and camera enthusiasts who want to buy a mid-range phone.
