Im sort of expecting an aircraft grade alloy metal build like on the Galaxy S6/S7 or Honor 5C. The importance of metal type have been emphasized ever since Apple bendgate incident.

1) After using Vivo V3Max for well over 6 months I will say for a mid range device like this, the built quality is very good. Ofcourse you do not expect the level of built quality that can be found on their flagship XSeries devices like Vivo X5Max. That phone have way better built and used to cost way more.
2) The phone is not prone to any scratches under normal use. I do not expect you to put V3Max in your pocket along with car keys and coins and run for a country mile. :)
3) As per my knowledge the phone comes with 2.5D mineral display glass. It is real 2.5 D.
NohV3Max, 03 Dec 2016Hello v3max user. I would like to ask for some suggestion about the best miniSD card to be use... moreI am using Sandisk 128 GB Class 10 microSD cards on both my Vivo X5Max & V3Max. It works like charm on both phones and the transfer speed is very fast. I have never tried anything bigger than 128 GB.
In my beloved X5Max, most of the 128 GB card is consumed my huge collection of lossless audio FLAC files These files are huge and provide superlative audio quality which are not possible in MP3. I admit X5Max is built for audio lovers as it has the best audio quality over headphones. The rest are BluRay ripped FullHd movies. This phone has one of the most vibrant display and is perfect for watching movies. The 5.5 inch FullHD Samsung Super AMOLED display is just mindblowing in X5Max and no other Vivo phone can stand against it display quality. No doubt X5Max was the most expensive Vivo launched ever in India retailing at INR 33k.
While I use X5Max for multimedia centric activities, my V3Max is mainly used for its default support of VoLTE (Reliance Jio), very useful fast charging capability and in games. Utilizing its stupendously powerful Snapdragon 652 SoC & 4 GB RAM, any game at its highest display settings runs liquid smooth over the FullHd display of V3Max. This phone is built for gamers hands down and to certain extent music aficionados too. :)
Hello v3max user. I would like to ask for some suggestion about the best miniSD card to be use with this phone. Currently that 32gb rom is still did not full, but just want to make some research before it is needed.
I am looking right now at Sandisk Ultra Micro SD Class 10 Ultra 80MB/s 64GB and SanDisk Ultra Micro SD Class 10 48MB/s 64GB. Which one is better? Can v3max handle the class10 miniSD with the transfer speed perfectly?
I do not care much about the price, and I am prefer 128gb rather than 64gb. Can you all suggest the best miniSD card to be use with v3max?

I need more convincing. I still wonder about the 2.5D glass. Is it the one under the preinstalled screen guard or are they refering to the screen guard. Btw, is the 2.5D glass is really corning gorilla glass? Because some review said the screen is soft like plastic. Then, is the metal back prone to scratches? Reviewer did said so. I only loves the performance of this phone but having doubt on its build quality. Tell me more please.
AnonD-616155, 02 Dec 2016whether the Mobile is compatible with VoLTE?
The Display showing only 4G instead of VoLTE and... moreVivo V3Max is a dual SIM device. As such it will support 4G VoLTE sim like Reliance JIO in any one of its slots. The other SIM slot is for 2G only. I keep my JIO sim in sim Slot1 and my Vodafone in Slot2. Both works like charm.:)
V3Max does not show VoLTE on display. On the upper left of the display it shows two signal strength bars, for me 1st on JIO is "4G" & the other on Vodafone is just "G". On the upper right it will show "HD" indicating High Definition (which means VoLTE) phone calls are available in the phone. The "HD' appears on the left of the "4G1" which is again on the left of the battery status indicator.
I can made VoLTE calls directly using the factory Phone app, I do not have to use the Jio4GVoice app and keep data ON for calls. When I make call, the Phone app gives me the option either i want to call through JIO or Voda.
AnonD-616155, 02 Dec 2016whether the Mobile is compatible with VoLTE? The Display showing only 4G instead of VoLTE and... moreI never seen the signal display as VoLTE on any smartphone. It will still show as either 4G or LTE only.
whether the Mobile is compatible with VoLTE?
The Display showing only 4G instead of VoLTE and sim slot no is a suffix as 4G1,
whether it is working with Voice over Long Term Evolution or Ordinary wide band 4G?
Anybody can clarify.
Kishore, 01 Dec 2016why no upgrade of OS . really i am feeling bad on vivoProbably because Funtouch OS is only based on android but they made Funtouch as the real OS. You can see that Funtouch version of V3 Max always updated to latest version. It was released with v2.5 then updated to v2.6. Now it runs on v2.7; this version is actually newer than the V5 which released with v2.6. Although the latest Funtouch version is v3.0 that they only used on flagships like the latest X series.

A lot of popular social media apps still support android icecreamsandwich and jellybean the lowest. Latest features of these popular apps are supported by android kitkat at minimum. Lower than kitkat, apps wont have latest features but still be able to run on old phone. Be grateful this vivo have lollipop 5.1.1. At least your phone dont run on android gingerbread that Google will stop supporting by early 2017.

I wont downgrade from Vivo V3Max to Vivo V5 just because it has M. With Vivo Funtouch OS on top you will notice no difference between the two. :)
Sadly Vivo v3 max won't be upgrading to M. I cannot even root the device. There are a lot of softwares that I wanted to install that only runs on M. I'll be switching to V5 soon because that one is on M version.
Nevertheless, it's a good phone for it's price. It's fast and the fingerprint is better than iPhone.
