Vivo V7+ comes packed within a regular paper box. Inside you'll find a 10W charger plug, a microUSB cable, and a pair of cheap-looking earbuds. Vivo is also throwing a free transparent silicon case for extra protection, too.
The vivo V7+ measures 155.9 x 75.8 x 7.7 mm - about the same as the Oppo F5 and R11s. The V7+ is lightweight at 160g probably because of its all-plastic build.
The V7+ metallic looks are deceiving but let them not fool you - the phone is wrapped in an all-plastic unibody. As far as design go these days, there is little to experiment with, so we are already get used to the flat backs and curvy frames.
That's where the screen comes in - with some impressively tiny bezels an otherwise recycled design could look completely different. And that's the case with the V7+. The 5.99" FullView display might not be top specked, but it has that eye-catchy flagship look and is protected by a 2.5D-finished Gorilla Glass 4. It should be more than enough to carry the cosmetic upgrades all by itself.
Flipping the vivoV7+ backwards reveals a familiar shell with flat surface and mirrored antenna lines. But as it turned out these sharp lines serve no functional purpose, just decoration. They were carved out of the plastic case and colored with a glossy paint the same way as the frame's chamfer.
The 16MP main camera is bulging just a little bit and probably has the only real piece of metal - the decorative ring around its protective glass. The fingerprint scanner is also around, nicely fitted at the center, and is of our favorite always-one super-accurate variety.
The vivo V7+ is far from unique, but trending it is. The design is lightweight and the phone fits quite well in hand. At 6" the screen is not the easiest to operate with just one hand, but we still find the V7+ sleek shape very reasonably sized and user-friendly. And while handling the V7+ you may never really know it's not made of metal unless someone tells you so. Sorry to ruin this.
The vivo V7+ is one of these devices that keeps everything you may need around. Obviously, the front is mostly screen with the 24MP selfie camera and its LED flash flanking the earpiece. The triple slot (SIM, SIM, microSD) is on the left, while the power and volume keys are on the right.
The top of the V7+ has the lonely secondary mic. The mouthpiece, the loudspeaker, the microUSB port, and the audio jack are all at the bottom.
The 16MP camera lens is at the back, accompanied by a single LED flash. The fingerprint sensor is also around.
