The latest generation of vivo’s V series is now available in the Philippine market. Introducing 3 models, the V25e, V25, and V25 Pro. Priced from Php17,999 to Php29,999 are performance smartphones, the V25, particularly, which introduces optimization needed for today’s Filipino consumers that are keener to express through video and personalization.

One feature vivo pioneered with its predecessor is the photochromic technology, which allows the backplate of the device to change colors when exposed to UV rays AKA the sun. On the V25 it now on its photochromic 2.0 version

The new photochromic 2.0 has more layers of color grading effect through the back panel’s anti-glare and scratch resistant glass which creates a better appreciation to its effect. Compared to the sunshine gold that shifts to a blue hue, the V25 is a more loud with a Sunrise Gold color that shifts to a pleasant orange.

While this effect is still exclusive to the V series, the price point is a sweet spot for consumers who looks for a feature to stand out with more personality rather than depending on using a smartphone case. You can consider this as a phone with dual personality as that can show two faces both night and day.

vivo V25 – Optics ready for the vertical world

Happy to share that the vivo V25 strides also in photography, capable of clear photos using its 3 camera system at the rear (64MP Main, 8MP Ultra-wide, 2MP Macro) and the unique 50MP AF Front camera.

Same as the V23, selfies are strong in this game the 50MP AF front camera, delivering strong details cause of its highest megapixel count for a front camera. Great for activities like stories, reels and selfies.

Although the V23’s dual front tone flash is no longer seen, the front camera didn’t loose any quality with a brighter display as flash thanks to the OLED display and even algorithm.This priority in the front camera caters to a new generation of smartphone users that is video portrait especially those who do Tiktok and Facebook Live.  

Photos of the 64MP Main Camera is decent, majority of the time you will either use the main camera or portrait mode but in our experience you will be glad to know that it snaps in decent speeds and shows details as it should be. 

The V25 has a lot of camera features on the package, here are just some of the items on the plate. These can be flexible to increase preference for consumers to be more creative, but overall what’s important is that vivo is focusing on photography like what they did on the X series. 

  • Rear Camera Bokeh Flare Portrait
  • Natural Portrait
  • Video HDR
  • Bokeh Portrait Video
  • AI HD Portrait
  • Vlog Movie
  • Time-Lapse
  • Multi-Style Portrait
  • Dual-View Video-front camera
  • Double Exposure
  • Multi-Style Portrait Video on Front Camera

With a clamor to record videos more stable like the vivo X series gimbal-like system, we are glad that the 64MP camera now has electronic stabilization and optical stabilization combined for ultra-steady videos of up to 4K 30fps / 1080 60fps. Great for more adventure-ready consumers that use their phone from home for passion activities. 

 

vivo V25 – Vibrant AMOLED Display 

The FHD+ AMOLED 90Hz display on the vivo V25 is crisp and bright, though a little bit more saturation on colors would be nice if you lower the brightness. You won’t see any low-grade AMOLED panels fortunately, here, the display is bright and responsive and doesn’t fluctuate in demanding scenes. 

 

vivo V25 – Performance for multitasking and decent gaming 

Straight out of the box the vivo V25 is powered by the strong and reliable 5G chip of MediaTek Dimensity 900. This processor is strong enough to deliver FHD smartphones to play medium-high settings in 60fps of Genshin Impact, or even high-ultra settings in Mobile Legends. 

 

8GB RAM + 8GB RAM EXTENSION 

 

Ridiculous by ear, but you can have up to 16GB of RAM on the V25, enough to juggle through strong applications when needed, but we think you won’t really use all as even 12GB RAM is already outrageous. What is great is the 256GB internal storage which can be more than enough for camera geeks and gaming enthusiasts. 

 

If you play Genshin Impact like me, you’ll be glad to buy a 256GB storage smartphone as the latest 3.1 update can occupy at least 20GB already. 

 

Gaming wise, the V25 is stable enough in performance thanks to improvement more on hardware like inclusion of a liquid cooling system for better head management. Plus with its Game Boost mode to activate the Game Boost mode for better priority in games such as processing and internet signal. As a Genshin Impact fanatic, you can simply game here for hours given the smooth body build, stable performance and attractive screen. 

 

vivo V25 – 44W Flash Charge + Sleek Battery

For a battery size rated at 4500mAh, the vivo V25 can endure a full day of use and casual gaming, in my experience, it sits more than enough for constant social media presence use, photography of precious moments, and a sudden team battle via Mobile Legends or your daily commissions in Genshin Impact.

Charging is also fast using the 44W Flash Charger that can reach 61% in 30 minutes. At the most an hour can fill you up already. Simply put, anything 25W is already fast, what more for 44W that is almost 2x more. 

vivo V25 Conclusion – Built for those who wants to stand out

Although we miss the front flash camera of the vivo V23, the brighter and more vibrant V25 display compensates for this. Along with a strong dual color personality of the V25 to have a strong attachment on the device as your personal companion and confidence to shoot or participate in any occasion with its 50MP Eye AF front camera and 64MP OIS Rear Camera that aren’t afraid of the night.

Just bring out the vivo v25 out from your pocket and get ready to get smiles once it transforms color, especially this very attractive orange from Sunrise Gold. Honestly, we like it so much that vivo should shout this feature out more. There are tons of smartphones now in the market, but only very few got us attached to design and personality wise, like the V25. So for the price of Php25,999 (8+256GB), you have a good deal of good optics, large RAM and Storage, decent performance, AMOLED high refresh rate, and even a body that you won’t get tired of looking at.
