Your perfect selfie partner: Check out Vivo V19 Neo

Vivo has been kicking the market lately with its V-series. After product launches were on hold because of COVID-19, they are now ready to release its two latest devices, the Vivo V19 and V19 Neo. But today’s discussion will be the latter of which will less hurt the money in your bank.


In Vivo’s standard blue and white colors, the V19 Neo retails for Php 17,999 or around $358 in the Philippines. But for those who are early birds who pre-ordered, it comes with Php 3,000 or around $60 worth of freebies inclusive in this is a wireless noise-canceling earphones and an extension of warranty card coverage period.


Though it shares the same DNA with the Vivo V19, this one is more affordable because of a few component differences. But cheaper does not mean it is less than powerful. The V19 Neo comes in a plastic back and frame with a glass front, which does an excellent job for hiding fingerprint marks. Also, it has triple card slots for two SIMs and one microSD card, microphone port, 3.5 mm audio jack, and of course, a fingerprint sensor.


Mobile phones come in full screen ratios nowadays and Vivo is taking advantage of the trend. The V19 Neo has a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display with 2,400 x 1,080 resolution. Moreover, it comes in unique features like relieves visual fatigue, eye protection, dark mode, and low brightness anti-flicker.


The V-series of Vivo mainly boasts about their camera-centric devices, and the V19 Neo will not back down. It comes in a quad-camera setup comprising a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, 2-megapixel depth camera, 2-megapixel macro sensor, and a 32-megapixel camera in front. One thing that tops the V19 Neo to any other standard mobile phone is its night mode feature, and this is not just applicable to the rear camera but to the front too! This phone allows its user to shoot up to 4k videos at 30 frames per second (fps) but sometimes, it is shaky. Nevertheless, slo-mo is fun to explore too!


The difference between the V19 and the V19 Neo is with the software. This one comes in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset, has a RAM of 8GB functions on Android 10, and has 128GB expandable storage. When tried and tested with different games, it did not falter but heat a little after several hours, which is acceptable since phones need rest time, too.

Battery life 

You can do a lot of things with V19 Neo’s 4,500 mAh battery which runs a maximum time of 13 hours and 35 minutes from watching videos, listening to music, checking emails, and playing games. This is made possible because of the 18-watt Dual Engine fast-charging tech, which can reach up to 30% of battery life in just 30 minutes of charging.
This phone might be cheaper than its twin product, but truth to be told, it gives the same reliable and midrange device everyone yearns for.
