For the brightness problem, i've had it as well before i knew that the brightness setting of my phone was set to auto. Also while playing a video from the video pre-installed app on the phone, the brightness changes because the video app itself has it's own brightness setting.
As for the battery, i think it was an okay for me. There are different battery saving options depending on the device's usage. But it would have been better if they put a detailed stat for the battery options to monitor battery usage.
Some apps in the appstore had functions that don't support this phone's chipset. Other than that, the gaming apps i have work just fine.
One doubt i have with this phone is the quality of the videos recorded. The rear cam which is 13mp works just fine when taking pics except that the pictures sometimes tend to be a little bit grainy. But when taking videos, the output is noticeably of lower quality and is pixelated. As for the front cam, it would have been better if there is a focus function. Although it was said in the product spec that the front cam has higher megapix which is 16mp as compared to the rear cam, when i compared the pics taken from the rear and the front camera, it does not have that much of a difference.
Phone has a lot of fun features such as the super screenshot and smart motion. But then it seems to me that some of these features are pretty much useless. It's a good device if you're looking for good aesthetics.
Phone is fast enough for internet browsing and online video streaming.
The hybrid SIM slot is quite inconvenient since you can't have extra storage on your device while having a dual SIM function. Either you have dual SIM without additional storage or you have that extra gig of space and only have one SIM.

I'm a heavy user myself and with a bit of a mix of internet and games, mine can easily break the 4 hour mark with battery to spare at about 35% easily. Although gaming wise its not the best, especially on 2k17 it is very laggy. Real racing 3 there can be hiccups but it is playable, it depends on how many ai racers are present and also the race track. But for casual games it is 10/10
bblab, 21 Aug 2017phone is simply amazing. The camera and the overall performance is superb. You can connect to wifi on this phone right?
Anyone here got problem with answering call? I cant hear the caller.

I hate it a lot told the vivo staff about the problem. But they want me to go to vivo center just for check up!! They can't do it!! It's their item anyway.. And it's only for 3days.. I complained a day after I bought it and they asked me to install something.. Yes I did that but the phone still the same goes off so fast.. Like 6hours without even using it. If I use it 2hours will get lobat.. Grrrrr!!! What a waste of money!!
i installed the new system update but after installing it the sim1 slot did not recognize my sun sim. i tried the sun sim in other phone and its working. i tried another sim on my sim slot 1 (globe) and it was detected. what is the problem of my phone. thanks for answering.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2017Is it worth it for the games?? yes. its good for games. i play mobile legends with it. it would take 5-6 hours straight playing with it with 10% battery left
phone is simply amazing. The camera and the overall performance is superb.
I am unable to transfer my videos from laptop to this f##ckin' phone!
this phone is unable to read on Laptop.
installer is not working.
i clicked HELP.
then it tolds me to go to vivoglobal.com to install the vivo driver but when you go to the site there is no drivers. zero search. REALLY REALLY F#CK!
the only problem i have with this phone is with the picture quality. when you take a picture it really looks good on phone but when you transfer it to pc the color becomes lighter. I have to edit first before i will post it.
other than that, I'm satisfied w/ this phone ;)
