The Vivo V23 Pro is a slim and light smartphone with a tricked-out back panel, which should appeal to the fashionistas. It offers a capable set of cameras too but falls a bit short when it comes to the basics.
It’s colour-changing design is unique and the build quality feels premium with a polycarbonate frame sandwiched between two sheets of glass with curved sides. However, it lacks stereo speakers and has a medium-sized notch on the display, which looks a bit dated.
The phone performs as expected when it comes to software and gaming but is a bit below the mark when compared to similarly priced smartphones that offer better hardware.
Still camera performance is quite good and the phone clicks good selfies. Low light camera performance is not bad either, but the competition offers better.
Battery life for a slim and light smartphone is quite good but don’t expect multi-day battery life with it so power users can steer clear of this one
