The Chinese brand Vivo has launched two new smartphone models V3 and V3Max in India. This is the first that this company has unveiled smartphones globally offering some premium features and fast fingerprint recognition.

Vivo V3 and V3Max which are priced at $270US and $360US are almost identical in their design but there are differences in their battery, display size, processor and memory.

About the design

Vivo has lived up to their tradition so the new Vivo V3 also has a metal housing and their logo at back and top corner of the smartphone. The major difference in design are the curved edges which make it comfortable to hold and and it moves on from the rectangular shape the previous models had. Vivo V3 despite its metal case is very light and easy to use.

OS

The Vivo V3 runs the company’s Funtouch OS 2.5 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. They have borrowed a lot of elements like the spotlight search and accessing the settings from the panel buttons on the front. The only disadvantage may be the lack of app drawer; otherwise the OS runs smoothly and has a cool custom skin.

Conclusion

Vivo V3Max is without any doubt the best smartphone that the Chinese smartphone brand has produced by now. The only small issue is that the device occasionally freezes which stops everything on the phone until you reboot it.  There has been a software update so there is a chance that Vivo will fix this problem.
