Vivo V23 Pro Review Highlights
The Vivo V23 Pro features a unique design. When indoors, our unit is shiny gold, but when exposed to the light, it changes turquoise blue. It's the outcome of employing fluorite AG glass, which fluoresces under ultraviolet light. It's also one of the slimmest smartphones on the market
When used inside or at night, the display is adequate. Under the hot sun, not so much. When using the phone outside, the brightness must be set to maximum, yet even then, the colours appear washed out. If not for an iPhone-like notch in the centre of the display, all of this would have been acceptable for 2022.
The Vivo V23 Pro is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor, which feels underpowered for the price. We could easily go about our regular routines while driving the V23 Pro and even games run well. However, it performs poorly in comparison to its competitors in this price range.
The Vivo V23 Pro's 108MP camera is the only one in the back camera stack that produces decent shots, with crisp details and somewhat subdued colours. When there is enough light, the ultrawide lens is adequate, while low-light images are merely average.
The Vivo V23 Pro is one of the first Vivo phones to ship with the Android 12-based FunTouch 12 operating system out of the box. The phone does everyday activities well, but it lacks many of Android's 12 interesting features.
The Vivo V23 Pro has a 4300mAh battery that gave us over 7 hours of screen-on time on a daily basis, which is rather excellent. It has a 44W fast charger that charges the phone from 0 to 50 in 30 minutes.
The Vivo V23 Pro is a good mass-market phone with a great focus on design intended for offline shoppers. The Vivo V23 Pro's first impressions are difficult to reject, but keep in mind the device's performance and display flaws.
