This phone disproves the general assumption that fast charging eats away the battery. Prior to this phone, I had owned a lot of smartphones with normal charging. Their battery had to be replaced after almost a year at max.
However, I'm now using Vivo v3max for more than 2 years and the battery may be a bit slower than the day I purchased the phone, it is still solid enough as it lasts more than a day and gives much better performance than my partner's Samsung S8. My phone still charges so fast that I'm used to it and I won't even consider phones without fast charging tech.
been using Vivo V3 Max for more than two years and still no issues, bought for Php17,000.00 and really worth the penny, unlike my former phone, Sony Xperia 3 Compact which super expensive, bought for (Php34,000.00), and the life span didn't even reach two years, a really big disappointment and waste of money. So I learned my lesson the hard. tsk!
Vivo V3 Max is a good buy, the only downside is its hybrid slot for memory card and sim 2.

I'm also using Vivo V3 Max for over 2 years now. Just came here to comment how amazing this phone has been. Especially given its price, it really surprised me as for me it actually performed better than the flagship Samsung, HTC, Sony and other phones I had bought prior to this. It never froze, nor restarted ever. It did not even hang at all. The fingerprint sensor is just awesome and the best thing is its battery and fast charging, which even after 2 years of use is still working great. Not to mention its premium looks as the phone does not look so cheap as it actually was.
These days people praise OnePlus, Xiaomi Pocophone and others etc as flagship killers, but for me this phone killed my desire to go after flagship phones anymore. Vivo V3 max price was even much less than the price of these so called flagship killers these days. Goes to show how much margin even the supposedly budget phones are making now.
Had been using my vivo v3max for the last 2 years and all I wanna say is I still love it especially in terms of performance (as if it was still what it used to be when I bought it). The only downside though was battery (already need to be replaced) due to 2 years of extensive use. Nevertheless, it was still a great phone.
Been using v3max for more than 2 years... no problems encountered, i even used ait to store some anime and ppsspp games with the help of my 64Gb microsd card. My ipega game controller even surrendered first after too much gaming.
really worth it but i just don't trust the mew releases from vivo, they are more incloned to selfie cameras now.
Vivo Malaysia Users, 02 May 2018Most of the time the screen of Vivo V3 Max will be freezon for few seconds. Battery drain out ... moreI disagree with most of your comments after using my Vivo V3Max for nearly 2 years.
1) I never experienced screen freeze on my V3Max.
2) V3Max uses a very powerful Snapdragon 652 SoC, which is built on older 28nm fabrication process. It delivers performance but is power hungry, also heats up. So yeah on heavy usage my V3Max ends the day with 4 to 5% juice left. Luckily fast charging is supported and in just an hour of charge will give you 75% battery.
3) I admit the Funtouch OS is not of everybody's taste, far from pure Android experience and a shameless copy of Apple iOS. But the software is very stable & never crash.
4) V3Max rear camera is just OK. My Vivo V5Plus have much improved rear camera. Vivo X5Max had the best rear camera of all the Vivo phones released in India.

Most of the time the screen of Vivo V3 Max will be freezon for few seconds. Battery drain out very fast on second year onward. Vivo V3 Max is using their own software Funtouch which is not reliable. Camera is fixed with filter which means if u want capture original natural scene, this phone will automatically beautify it with a filter. You have no choice to not opt for it.
vikash Kumar , 12 Apr 2018update marshmallow I own a Vivo V3Max. If you take my personal opinion I think it will never receive an Android version upgrade. Vivo typically provides OTA updates for 2 years from date of release which is April, 2016. As such I believe there will be no updates.
RishiGuru, 18 Feb 2017I have updated to the latest said version. Not noticing any ads as of now in iManager app.update marshmallow

However I believe V3Max will never get Android Lollipop to Marshmallow upgrade. Saying that Vivo is still pushing OTA updates to V3Max with regular security patches and software optimizations.

Erique, 07 Jan 2018because it's vivo policy I believe Vivo revised its Android version upgrade policy from 2017 onward. As such any top tier Vivo phone released from 2017 will get at-least 1 version upgrade. V3Max is a phone from 2016 and it did not get any update. My V5 Plus was released in 2017, hence got the update from Android marshmallow to Nougat.
