From a Slim Design to Best-in-Class Cameras, Here are 5 Things That Make the Vivo V29e a Must Buy

From a stunning design to powerful cameras, the Vivo V29e checks all the right boxes.


Vivo’s V series of smartphones is known for offering a perfect blend of style and powerful hardware. And the latest smartphone in the range is no different. The all-new Vivo V29e carries forward the legacy with its attractive aesthetics, user-friendly features, and powerful cameras. 

Considering that Indian consumers are constantly demanding better features and user experience, the handset manages to stand out from the other devices in the sub-Rs 30,000 segment with its versatile features. It ticks all the right boxes, from design to camera, and performance to display. Let’s take a closer look at five stand-out factors that make the Vivo V29e a commendable option under Rs 30k.  

Slimmest 3D Curved AMOLED Display in the Segment

A smartphone’s most significant feature is its display, for we spend most of our time looking at it. The Vivo V29e’s claim to fame is that it’s the segment’s slimmest smartphone with a 3D curved display with a subtle curve on the edges. The curved display is a luxury that’s mainly limited to premium smartphones and has its own separate fanbase. It ensures that the 6.78-inch AMOLED panel not only provides an immersive experience but also feels premium in the hand.


The screen supports 1.07 billion colours, a DCI-P3 Wide Colour Gamut, and an 80,00,000:1 high contrast ratio. Whether you are reading an article online, playing your favourite FPS game, or catching up on the latest episode of your favourite show, the panel will offer vivid colours, darker blacks, sharper text, and crisp graphics. 

The display also flaunts 1,300 nits of peak brightness, which means you wouldn’t have to squint your eyes whether you are using the V29e in direct sunlight or pitch black. Moreover, a 120Hz refresh rate promises a buttery smooth user experience, while a 1,200Hz touch sampling rate ensures a faster response. 

A Design That Turns Heads

Who doesn’t want a smartphone that grabs everyone’s attention? The Vivo V29e is a sharp detour from its predecessor, the V27, which featured a minimalist aesthetic design with a colour-changing Fluorite AG Glass technology. The Vivo V29e flaunts a dual-pattern back panel with a geometric diamond pattern on the right where the new Cloud Step camera module resides, and a matte splicing texture on the left.

Vivo V29e is being offered in Artistic Blue and Artistic Red colours. You get what you see with the Artistic Blue variant, but the Artistic Red colourway brings back the colour-changing Fluorite AG Glass technology. When exposed to sunlight or UV light, the red colour turns to black on the back panel, which is mesmerising to look at. The blend of geometric pattern, silky matte glass, and colour-changing effect with gold accents provide the Vivo V29e a distinctive character.

That’s not it! The V29e is just 7.5mm thin and weighs 180.5g. Vivo takes pride in the fact that the smartphone’s chassis is a single plate measuring just 2.29mm. Therefore, not only does it look super aesthetic, but it also feels ergonomic in the hand. If you want a smartphone to make a statement, then you can’t go wrong with the Vivo V29e.  

Industry-Leading Selfie Camera

The Vivo V29e is more than a pretty-looking smartphone with a great display. The brand has built a reputation for offering powerful camera phones and with the V29e, it’s taking that several notches above. The Vivo V29e flaunts a 50-megapixel eye autofocus selfie camera to users. It is an industry leading selfie camera in the Rs 25,000 – Rs 30,000 bracket. The powerful camera produces self-portraits with rich details and accurate skin tones, which will appeal selfie enthusiasts. The eye AF locks onto your eyes, producing a sharp and crisp selfie whether you are still, or moving. 

The Vivo V29e comes with a dual-camera setup at the back, comprising a 64-megapixel primary sensor with OIS and an ultra-wide-angle 8-megapixel sensor. The camera has various flagship-grade features such as Micro Movie, Supermoon, Style, Filter, Light effect, and more. It is well suited to click crisp and punchy pictures.

Where the V29e truly shines is the portrait mode. The 64-megapixel OIS camera allows users to click studio-like pictures in low-light conditions with six times more light intake. There’s also a 2x Professional Portrait Mode designed to help users click DSLR-like portrait shots with minimal distortion. 

Vivo’s V29e features various India’s exclusive wedding-style portrait filters with colour palettes from top Indian photographers to click pro-grade wedding photos. You can rest assured that with the V29e in your pocket, you will never carry your DSLR or the prime lens again. The smartphone also features portrait bokeh flares, including Stars, Hearts, Butterfly, and Cherry Blossom, for interesting bokeh shots. 

Promises a Powerful Performance

When you are looking for a smartphone that you will use as a primary device, it’s imperative to pick one with a fluid and smooth performance. Thanks to App Retainer feature, the device can open apps to the last window you saw for a seamless experience. On the other hand, the RAM Saver feature reduces unnecessary memory consumption for a faster multitasking experience. Vivo is offering the phone in 128GB or 256GB storage variants.

The SoC can handle day-to-day usage with impressive app opening times, stable game frame rates, and reliable network connections. Multitasking on the V29e is a breeze thanks to 8GB RAM and additional RAM support through the Extended RAM 3.0 feature. 

The Vivo V29e boots Android 13-based Funtouch OS 13 out of the box. The software offers enhanced personalisation options, improved security features, and new control features for a fulfilling user experience. In short, the Vivo V29e is a robust workhorse that will serve you well day-to-day, which brings us to…

An All-Day Battery Life

Nomophobia is real, and you don’t want a smartphone that dies before the sun sets and requires you to carry the charger all the time. The good news is that the Vivo V29e has a beefy 5,000mAh battery under the hood, which will easily see you through a productive day. Moreover, the 44W FlashCharge fast charging solution minimizes the charging downtime. Vivo has also equipped the V29e with 24-dimensional charging protection, which safeguards the battery from overcharging and extends the lifespan of the battery. It’s an excellent option for those facing low battery anxiety.
