The hottest Vivo smartphone as of October 2019 is the Vivo V17 Pro. If OPPO has its unique shark-fin pop-up selfie camera on the Reno and Reno 2 Series, Vivo is boasting its dual-selfie pop-up camera. Even with the larger pop-up mechanism, the screen is rid of notch or pinholes. With a P21,999 price tag, here are the few reasons why Vivo V17 Pro should be your next phone.
Go Tight or Wide with the dual-selfie camera
Ultrawide angle has been the trend in most smartphones. Even iPhone 11 has joined the hype train. As much as we love getting everything on the screen, most people still take selfies. One problem of selfie cameras today is that it’s too tight for group shots. That’s where Vivo V17 Pro’s main feature comes in — allowing you to switch to a super wide-angle of 105-degree.
Expose your selfies with Night Mode
That’s right, you can take selfies with ease even during low-light scenarios. Dubbed as Super Night Selfie, the cameras take multiple exposures to provide a beautiful image of your face. It’s also nice to see that selfie soft light flash is available for better exposure during the darkest hours of the day.
Four Main Cameras
When you want to capture what’s in front of you, the 48MP won’t disappoint you in providing well-balanced and crisp-looking photos. At the same time, you can go for the telephoto if you want to isolate your subject. It also lets you record videos up to 4K resolution for the best quality. Should you wish to get creative, there are several modes for you to use, such as timelapse, slo-mo, pro mode, camera filters, and even live photos for that bokeh effect (all thanks to that 2MP depth sensor). As always, you have an 8MP sensor for capturing landscape sceneries or group pictures. As for the last 2MP sensor, you can get really, really close to your subject for a unique shot. The camera lets you shoot as close as 4cm from the subject, providing you a new perspective.
Uninterrupted Ultra FullView Screen
In the world full of pinholes and notches on the screen, Vivo V17 Pro lives in the future. The 6.44″ is wide, huge, and beautiful to look at. You can enjoy every single content as the creators intended them to. It also makes gaming a lot easier and more immersive. At 1080p resolution, the quality of the display is crisp, colorful, and accurate thanks to the Super AMOLED technology.
Game All Day Err Day
Make no mistake, Vivo V17 Pro is also made for optimal gaming. The Snapdragon 675 chipset balances power and efficiency that allows you to play for hours with its 4100mAH battery. There’s 8GB of RAM for uninterrupted gameplay even with background apps and a spacious 128GB expandable storage for all your apps. You don’t need to worry about overheating as the phone regulates the temperature software and hardware-wise.
Vivo’s Multi-Turbo acceleration technology keeps the device cool and out of extreme temperature. By combining AI Turbo, Center Turbo, Game Turbo, Cooling Turbo, and Net Turbo, the response time of V17 Pro increases up to 25%. In Ultra Game Mode, you can prevent notifications from distracting you. And should you wish to take your gaming to the next level, Vivo has a built-in voice changer when going hands-free communication.
