Vivo has earned fame for its name over the years by offering quality handsets. Its most celebrated V series has gone through overwhelming praise for the devices added in its profile. Recently the V series has introduced its model V21. Like most other smartphones of the same series, V21 has also created a buzz in the device lovers’ communities. Vivo has designed the model to be versatile and to get its jobs done. Since May 5, the day the phone got released in China, it has come to the limelight. This Vivo V21 review will discuss the essential features of the phone.
Key Features of Vivo V21
If you ever happen to see a Vivo V21 phone, the first thing you will be aware of is its shiny and sparkling design. Especially the backside of Sunset Dazzle variant is able to hook peoples’ eyes for a while. Mixed shades of some lovely colors create a dual-tone effect, which brings an elegant look to the surface. When touched by the sunrays or light, the back creates a rainbowish effect that seems different from a different angle. The users who prefer fewer dazzles should go for the Dusk Blue variant.
With a weight of 177 g and a depth of 7.38 mm, Vivo V21 is an extra light phone. The flat back has roomed a camera panel which protrudes nicely without making any issue.

The front of the Vivo V21 is made of a 6.44” FHD+ AMOLED display. The colors on display are perfectly distributed, and the AMOLED screen adds extra crispness to the images. The bright display is even noticeable under the sunlight. The only facet where the display deviates from the standard is the sharpness of colors it generates. The colors seem a bit sharper and saturated. However, this is not a big deal as those colors look consistent even from odd angles.
The display has a higher refresh rate of around 90Hz, which is definitely a treat for game lovers. They will be able to play games smoothly with this highly responding screen. Videos watch will also give a better experience.
The display is made of AG Matte Glass. It gives additional robustness to the phone. Moreover, the glass is anti-slip and scratch-resistant.

The Power of Selfie Camera
The front selfie camera is the best feature that has come with Vivo V21. The huge 44MP secondary camera with OIS technology and nighttime feature is like a game-changer in the history of selfie cameras. Vivo V21 is the first and presently the only phone that has integrated the Optical Image Stabilization technology in the entire market. Moreover, the camera is accompanied by a Screen Spotlight and a Dual Selfie Spotlight. As a result, the camerawork in the low light is equally magnificent. And it makes Vivo V21 the best selfie phone right now. The camera can even record videos in 4K resolution.

The rear panel of the camera rooms a triple main camera set up. The primary is a 64MP lens. There are a multi-function 8MP wide-angle camera and a 2MP super macro lens. All of these lenses do their jobs proficiently. The focusing is precise as the phone implements eye-autofocus technology.
In daylight, the pictures are quite sharp and have details over the edge. The wide lens is also good as it intensifies the colors in the picture. In low light or nighttime, the pictures won’t lose quality. Yet, they can look a bit overexposed if there are too many light sources.

Performance and Gaming
Vivo V21 uses a MediaTek 800U 7nm Octa-core processor. It has a clock speed of 2.4 GHz. Normally this is the capacity that works with 128GB storage. But Vivo has implemented some technological changes in an attempt to enhance the power of the phone. In addition to its 8GB RAM, Vivo has featured an extra 3GB of virtual memory.
The virtual memory is the room that the built-in RAM borrows from the available storage memory when it needs it. While playing higher graphical games, the virtual memory technology provides the RAM the ability to give a better experience. However, with all these powerful features, the phone still works best at the lowest requirement of a high config game.
Apart from gaming, other daily tasks like browsing, application using, and even high-resolution video watching don’t project any issue.

Battery & Charging
Another aspect that justifies the claim that the Vivo V21 is an entirely camera-based phone is its battery capacity. The phone has a 4000mAh battery. 4000mAh battery capacity is undoubtedly insufficient for a phone which emphasizes gaming or other tasks.
Astonishingly, the 4000mAh battery runs the phone consistently for around 6 or 7 hours. With regular use, the duration of this coverage will elongate. A heavy use like gaming more than two hours at a stretch and browsing and watching videos will at least carry the phone for 4 or 5 hours.
However, to compensate for the comparatively low capacity of the battery, the Vivo V21 presents a robust charger. The 33W Flashcharger given with the phone only takes an hour to fully charge the phone up.

The phone Vivo V21 has some strengths and weaknesses, indeed.

Other than this, the phone will also provide nice gameplay and superfast charging ability.
