It can be responsibly said that the Vivo V23 Pro is one of the most stylish smartphones on the market. Its body is only 7.4 mm thick. The display and back panel are nicely rounded, which creates the feeling of an even thinner device. The back panel is slippery, so we recommend using a case. This will reduce the risk of leakage.
Among the unique design features of the Vivo V23 Pro is the material with which its body is covered. The latter is sensitive to sunlight. Falling on it, a game of colors begins.
Another interesting feature is the dual front camera. It is positioned in a large slot at the top of the screen. We have seen a similar solution in the iPhone.
You should also know that the screen is covered with Schott Xensation protective glass and the back panel with Fluorite AG glass.
One of the key features of the Vivo V23 Pro is its AMOLED display. It is 6.56-inch and has a resolution of 2376 x 1080 pixels at a pixel density of 398 per inch. The refresh rate is pleasing - 90 Hz. The maximum level of brightness will satisfy your need to read information from your screen when you are outdoors on a sunny day.
You will find three sensors on the back of the Vivo V23 Pro. The main one is 108-megapixel and is complemented by an ultra-wide-angle 8-megapixel camera with 120-degree visibility and a 2-megapixel macro lens.
The front camera in turn is dual. It consists of a 50-megapixel and an additional 8-megapixel module. On the upper frame above the display you will notice two LED flashes. When shooting with the main camera, the default pixels are combined and therefore photos are stored at a resolution of 12 MP. This saves from storage. However, if necessary, you can use the full potential of the lens.
Much can be said about the quality of the photos with the Vivo V23 Pro. When shooting with the main camera, expect high detail and a wide dynamic range. The colors are saturated and look perfect on the screen.
The ultra-wide angle sensor allows you to take spectacular group photos and panoramas. Its only drawback is that it leaves a lot of noise if you shoot the sky.
You can expect high detail from the front camera. Despite its low resolution, the macro camera does an excellent job. The main module of the front camera takes great photos with nice colors and a wide dynamic range. The bokeh effect looks natural.
Finally, with the Vivo V23 Pro in hand, you can record 4K videos with both the main and front cameras.
At the heart of the Vivo V23 Pro is an 8-core Dimensity 1200 5G processor in combination with the Mali-G77 MC9 graphics accelerator. There are two modifications on the market - with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. Vivo has added the recently popular "virtual RAM" feature. This allows you to set aside 4 GB of internal storage for it.
You will love the Vivo V23 Pro software. It is one of the first devices of the company with the operating system Android 12 and Funtouch 12. At your disposal are many of the new features of Google.
Looking at the Vivo V23 Pro, you will find that instead of an LED notification indicator, the company has focused on backlit pages on the screen. You can limit this feature to certain applications.
In the settings you will also find the Always on Display function.
If you are a gamer, the Vivo V23 Pro has a lot to offer. For example, a special gaming mode. Another useful feature is the ability to allow certain applications to display messages on the screen.
Vivo V23 Pro has a battery with a capacity of 4300 mAh. It may seem small compared to many modern smartphones, but there is an explanation. The capacity of the device is reduced to achieve its impressively thin body. However, this did not affect the autonomous work much. With 100% charge, it can provide up to 15 hours of daily tasks and 17 hours of video watching.
Complete with the device you get a 44W adapter. With it you can restore the charge up to 65% in just 30 minutes. It will take about an hour to fully recharge the Vivo V23 Pro.
Vivo V23 Pro is a special smartphone for anyone who appreciates stylish design. It belongs to the middle class and is therefore not protected against water. There is also no optical stabilization when shooting and a number of features typical of competitors. However, the set of options makes it quite attractive. We should not forget the interesting play of colors that the back panel offers. It's amazing!
The smartphone market is competitive, no matter what class it is. If you are looking for models to compare the Vivo V23 Pro with, there are several. Among them you will find Xiaomi 11i, Realme GT2 and Poco F3.
