But priced at over Rs 35,000 means Vivo faces tough competition from the likes of OnePlus and Realme. So, to get a better understanding of its capability here is our detailed comparison of the Vivo V25 Pro with the OnePlus 10R and the Realme GT Neo 3.

Vivo V25 Pro vs OnePlus 10R vs Realme GT Neo 3: Design
Vivo has given special focus to the design of the new smartphone. The back panel is made out of textured glass which is capable of changing colours. The phone feels light and slim which makes it easy to use with one hand. The overall in-hand feel is also quite good.
With the OnePlus 10R, you get a boxy design that has flat edges and the back panel is made of plastic which doesn’t look premium. Having said that, a durable body makes it less prone to fingerprints and accidental bumps are also unlikely.
Realme GT Neo 3 shows all its action at the back with the design of the panel inspired by a racing stripe, something which we have seen on other GT-series devices in the past.

Vivo V25 Pro vs OnePlus 10R vs Realme GT Neo 3: Verdict
Vivo V25 Pro is a premium device that has a tough battle on its hands with established and powerful devices like the OnePlus 10R and the Realme GT 3 Neo. All three phones carry an AMOLED display with high refresh rate support and other highlights. But Vivo is using a mid-range chipset which might struggle to compete with the Dimensity 8100 series.
Cameras are always subjective to usage so we can’t comment on their quality but the battery unit and the charging speed feel slower compared to what OnePlus and Realme have to offer. For this price, Vivo V25 Pro might be a hard sell for buyers.
