Vivo V25 Pro: Solid MidRanger For The Southeast Asian Market

Over the year I've tested Vivo V series phones since the launch of the V5, which launched in early 2017 and has been described as the "perfect selfie phone". Since then, the Shenzhen-based phone maker has released the V roughly every six months, which, along with the trend of moving to even numbers, has led to the V25 in half a decade. Unlike previous V phones, which have always looked like mid-range phones in terms of design, the Vivo V25 Pro looks more like a flagship phone. To the untrained eye, you can't tell this $450 phone from Samsung's $1,000 premium phone.


The Vivo V25 Pro is a sleek, curved device with a 6.5-inch curved OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The panel doesn't light up like a phone's home screen or dim not dynamically set the refresh rate to 1Hz to save battery power, as newer iPhones can, but these additional advancements are not significant to the user. For most people, they look at this screen and see that it has thin bezels, vibrant colors, and to them it's as good as any screen on a $1200 phone.

The back is glass and has this coating material that changes color when UV rays hit it. This lets you create patterns on the back of the phone if you want, but they only last about five minutes before returning to their natural color. A small gadget, in my opinion, serves no purpose other than a pure gimmick during the holidays.
