I bought it today for 120 € because was the cheapest phone with full HD amoled panel in my market. Redmi note 11 is with 80 € more expensive.
I can tell is a phone for girls because they focused on the design and selfie camera.
Amoled, near stock android, no preinstaled apps, 33 w charging,
The single monospeaker sounds awful, very robotic sound.
The main 48 camera is rubbish, other phones with 48 take better picturers.
Connectivity Wi-Fi issues I had ironed out in recent update, but still not satisfied with battery even with light browsing and social media it drops significantly. It's good the fast charger charges it up fast but I feel the longevity of the battery will just dwindle. I cannot imagine a heavy user using this for a full day. Having said that it may just be my handset.
Phone running Android 11 - Funtouch OS 11 Global
Battery drains fast, and I experience a lot of inconsistent connectivity issues when connected to Wi-Fi it disconnects and reconnects straight away a lot. Other than this the phone is ok.
3 months into owning the phone, no issues.
I don't take photos much, if at all. I can't comment on that other than the few photos of my dog, looked like my dog. I use ProShot as my camera app and have for last 3 or 4 phones.
Battery is deceptively long lasting for me. I use email, web and rss feed reader often through the day and I can go 2 to 3 days before needing a charge. I don't watch videos on my phone. It works well with Android Auto and as my car needs it connected via USB to get all the features, it's charging while streaming audio.
Screen is bright for my eyes. That isn't a complaint. It just feels bright even when turned down and with Twilight running.
I don't use any of the Vivo apps. I have them all disabled/uninstalled/blocked. Nothing against Vivo, I just want only the apps I used.
which probably brings me to my only issue, Funtouch OS. it felt like I had to fight it initially to set it up how I prefer, not actually a Vivo issue, mine. Custom launcher and apps helped but would be nice to be able to run a stripped down OS which doesn't seem to be a possibility in the near future.
You can set your own ringtone by going into ringtone settings and at top it has custom ringtone press that and set your desired tone.

all the best
i had the Y17 before, which made me a Vivo fan. This one is supposed to be an upgrade, but it's missing a lot of good features the earlier phone had, in the camera and the settings.
Cannot use a custom ringtone. Every time i try to add a custom ringtone (mp3) the system says, "okay" .... and then on the next screen promptly forgets the change. Every single time.
Same with the default alarm tone.
Both give the impression that you can change the tone, then they change it back straight away...

Image quality is not good day and night. Bad exposure, images, poor dynamic range, too darkers. Don't buy it for the camera, it' s the worst 48 mpx i've tested

Neither party can hear. Not able to customise ring tone. No message to post while I am in a call. Called customer service. Waiting for response. Unhappy for these reasons. A cheaper Huawei GR5 is great with all the above.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2020Vivo lacks that 'One Standout Feature' nowadays, and keeps delivering whats already ... moreYes, very true.
Imagine if a smartphone company went the google approach with a few solid/useful cameras and refining the software before making the hyper-competitive spec sheet without having the same old low end mid range killer.
