Vivo has added a triple-camera setup on the again consisting of a main digital camera sensor with 24-megapixel decision and an f/1.Eight aperture, a secondary 8-megapixel digital camera with an ultra-wide lens, and a 3rd 5-megapixel sensor for depth mapping.

The vast angle lens is spectacular and doesn’t end in as a lot distortion in direction of the sides as we noticed within the V15 Pro. Although, we nonetheless get that traditional ultra-wide look together with the software program possibility to repair it. Shifting to low-lighting situations, the corporate wants to enhance as most photographs have been full of grain and the over-all picture regarded like a muddy mess with no clear particulars.
Final however positively not least, the selfie digital camera is the very best that cash can purchase proper now. The 32-megapixel digital camera sensor does an important job in capturing good clear photos. All that is enhanced by a variety of software program options together with auto HDR, studio lighting impact, reside picture, AR stickers, “AI Beauty” mode, “Pano” mode, “Pro” mode, and “Doc” mode for doc scanning. It’s price noting that “Pro” mode and “Doc” mode should not accessible for the entrance digital camera.
Battery life with the 4,000mAh battery is one other space the place the V15 Pro excels. The gadget can simply final a few day because it was capable of face up to my heavy utilization for about 10 hours. This included 1.5-2 hours of gaming, about 2-2.5 hours of music streaming, 30-45 minutes of YouTube, 10-15 pictures, a number of apps like Instagram, Fb, fixed WhatsApp messages and three e mail accounts on sync.
