Best one ...even rare camera and video is very good ...but no video call feature without internet
Hi,vivo users this is a very nice mobile no hanging using very Nice buy now,,
I am using vivo v1 , honestly saying vivo is a good phone working fine without any hangging and heating issues. But still price tags are high compared to other brands with same specifications....Very Nice phone ...
I got VIVO V1 as a gift from my hubby. i have been using this since a month. recently i started facing issues with the phone-
1. while i am on call- phone gets disconnected showing No Network Coverage.
2. Hangs sometime when i disconnect the call.
3. restarts by itself when trying to make a call.
I have taken it to the service center where they rebooted the phone and it was working fine for 5 days but then the same issue again.
I dont want to throw away the phone as its a gift. Please advise what to do.
Plz tell me about Samsung j7 nd vivo v1 max .which is best mobile.
I have this very strange feeling... after reading some of the posts... found on the opinion section of various Vivo handsets in GSMArena... and I have this ever increasing doubt... that there are a lot of active Vivo sales reps... admitting even they are so... even sometimes providing their vivo official mail ids in various posts... and trying to convince the end consumers... with the illusion that the respective Vivo models are the best handset in their price category.

I thought to share a few points about my X5Max, V1 and Vivo in general:
1) Excellent built quality. Be it X5Max or V1, from the moment you hold X5Max or V1 in your hand you feel the premium built quality and precision engineering. The handsets radiate as if they were curved from a single block of magnesium/ aluminum and are built to last. But this premium quality comes at a premium price just like an Apple iPhone. So Vivo is not like LeTv/ LeEco, providing premium quality at an insanely low price.
2) Vivo's own Funtouch overlay over Android. As the name implies this custom operating system overlay is "fun to touch" and comes with many useful gesture controls which are truly helpful at times. But don't expect blazingly fast performance and range topping benchmark scores against this OS. Even though Funtouch OS overlay is a shameless copy of Apple's own iOS found in iPhones, coping iPhone have made Vivo to offer us a very useful and intuitive OS and truly engaging for day to day activity. I love this OS.
3) If you are a music lover and cherish high sound quality over headphones, then Vivo flagship models like X5Max or X5Pro are for you. Two years back we had not too many options, Meizu was not available in India and X5max was the best and only choice for music buffs like me. Fortunately now we have many choices like Lenevo Vibe X3 which has the premium built quality like X5Max coupled with high quality sound and also comes way cheaper at INR 20K while X5max retailed at INR 33K. Meizu MX5 Pro and Xiaomi Mi Note are also other options you can look out for.
1) Zero Android OS updates. Let me give you an example. I gifted my wife's a Motorola Moto G (2nd Gen) in 2014 which came preinstalled with Android 4.4.4 (KitKat). The Moto G retailed online at INR 11K in Flipkart. In the same year I got myself a Vivo X5Max at INR 33K (3x the price of Moto G) from a local offline Vivo dealer. This also came with Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) with their own Funtouch 2.0 overlay. Standing as of today the Moto G was subsequently updated via OTA by Motorola to Android 5.0.1 (Lolipop) -> Android 5.1.0 (Lolipop) -> Android 6.0.0 (Marshmallow). Unfortunately the X5Max being a flagship device and initially costing 3x the price of a budget Moto G is still stuck to the same version it came pre-installed with, Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) . This is the biggest disappointed I have against Vivo, and after waiting for over a year I have understood they never do updates. The Android version in which your Vivo handset will come is the version it will remain for the rest of its life be it even a flagship device like X5Max. I have lost a lot of respect against the company in this aspect only.
2) Vivo handsets are not meant for gaming. Poor optimization of the Android with its Funtouch OS means it always remains in the bottom of the score chart in benchmarks like AnTuTu when compared with other handsets with same chipsets from rival companies. You will find more of this is GsmArena reviews itself like that of X5Max or X5Pro. You can imagine the level of stuttering and frame loss when I started to play Asphalt 8 on my flagship X5Max which comes with 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor and 32-bit Android 4.4.4 with a poorly optimized Funtouch OS. The same game blazes in my wife's new Moto X Play with same chipset and 2GB RAM. With V1 my advice will be to stick to very low end games like Subway Surfers.
3) Always buy Vivo phones with 2GB RAM at minimum. As I said before and also mentioned by GSMArena reviews many a times, this custom Funtouch OS is very poorly optimized so require much more resources to perform optimally. To give you an example, my wife's old Moto G came with a 32-bit Snapdragon 400 with 1GB RAM and at that moment was updated to Android 5.0.1. My Vivo V1 on the other hand had 64-bit Snapdragon 410 with 2GB RAM and also comes with Android 5.0.1 having Funtouch 2.1 overlay. So V1 had much superior processor with twice the RAM of Moto G. But when I ran AnTuTu benchmarks in both handsets all hell break loose and Moto G was just a notch below V1 in total score, and most absurdly had higher scores in RAM utilization and optimization while V1 with two times the RAM of Moto G was lagging much behind it. You get the picture. This is the reason why the Vivo Y27L has so many complains which uses the same CPU of V1 but with 1GB RAM only.
4) Absurd sky high offline price when compared to online sales of its competitor models through online sales channels like Flipkart or Amazon. Let us take the example of the maximum retail price of INR 18K of Vivo V1. Comparing the absurdly high priced V1 with LeTv Le 1s (INR 11K) or Lenovo K4 Note (INR 12K) is simply injustice; they will simply blow the V1 out of the water and then stampede it in every category be it screen size or performance category bar none even being INR 6 to 7K cheaper. Same goes for every other model of Vivo.
5) If you really love to use a Vivo handset better goes gun for second's sale in Quikr or Olx. You will find a ton of Vivo users trying to sale their Vivo phones with barely two to three months of use, at almost half the price. I got one such two months old V1 in brand new condition at INR 7K (60% discount on INR 18K MRP). At 7K the Vivo V1 is a complete VFM and a great device worthy to buy.
