2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 18+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • The design feels fresh and vibrant - phone's sleek profile is eye-catching, with a matte back glass, it is one of the nicest looking phones for the price
  • The phone looks quite flawless from the back, it features a rather flashy back cover
  • The Vivo V20 is one of the lightest around in the price segment, and at 7.38mm in thickness, it is surprisingly slim
  • The power button has a texture to give it a more distinguished feeling
  • The in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as face recognition, are quick to unlock the V20
  • Because of its slim profile, the Vivo V20 is a bit slippery


  • The display is a gorgeous 6.44-inch AMOLED FHD+ panel which promises vibrant and life-like colours - the contrast is impressive and it also supports HDR10 for high-quality video playback
  • It gets bright enough for using the device even under harsh sunlight
  • Though, it isn't a high-refresh-rate panel


  • The Vivo V20 comes with Android 11 out of the box, with Vivo's new Funtouch OS 11 - this new skin by Vivo brings several bells and whistles, and a much cleaner, simpler interface - there's an improved dark mode and tons of customisation options


  • Good performance from the Snapdragon 730G SoC - it is good enough to help you through tasks of daily use and even running multiple apps simultaneously - casual gaming is no issue and heavy games run at medium settings, which is decent
  • However, this isn't the best performing phone at the price, there are better options available like the OnePlus Nord


  • Good triple cameras for the price - a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP mono camera
  • Photos shot in bright sunny conditions turned out well - images clicked using the device generally come out with life-like colours and packing good detail
  • The Ultra-wide camera adds fun new perspectives, it can take dramatic super-wide-angle photos with lesser details than the main camera - besides, it can also take Macro shots, which come out with good detail, and you end up with a higher resolution image compared to what most dedicated macro cameras produce
  • Portraits have good edge detection and you do get the option to set the intensity of the blur effect - beautification is enabled by default which smoothens skin textures
  • Low-light camera performance is good, photos have little noise and details in brighter areas are decent - enabling Night mode improves the level of detail
  • The 44MP selfie camera is very good at what it does - daylight selfies are sharp with accurate colours and good details, there's also an Eye Autofocus option that keeps the subject in sharp focus - portrait selfies are possible and you can set the level of blur before taking a shot
  • Video recording in daylight is good, video recording tops out at 4K for the primary as well as the selfie shooter - footage shot in 4K, as well as 1080p, is stabilised (though, video shot in low light has a shimmer effect at both resolutions, which isn't good)
  • Overall, cameras are one of the highlights of the phone and they can take on any other capable camera phone at this price


  • Good battery life from the 4000 mAh battery - it can easily manage to keep the phone going on for around a day on moderate-heavy use
  • Charging is quick with the supplied 33W FlashCharge charger - it takes the V20 to 98 percent in an hour


  • If you value looks over other aspects, the Vivo V20 will appeal to you, it is well designed and feels premium to the touch - the device also offers above par photography performance, it emerges as a very good option for taking pictures and shooting videos
  • However, if heavy-duty gaming is what you're looking for, alternatives such as the OnePlus Nord offer significantly better performance, you can also consider the Galaxy M51 for its insane battery life powered by a 7000 mAh battery
