In case you need a refresher on ViVo V23 specifications, here’s what you can expect from the device:
ViVo has created ViVO S10, S20 and S30 series smartphones running Android Nougat 7.1 out of box in Pakistan.
Performance and Software
With respect to performance, ViVo V23 is equipped with a Quad-Core processor that is accompanied by 3GB of RAM. The latter should be plenty for running most applications and games without any major lags or stutters.
As far as software goes, users are treated to Android Nougat 7.1 which comes pre-installed with several useful applications and functionalities out of the box.
The only real downside here is that there are no extra features in terms of software upgrades so it’s unlikely we’ll see anything new until ViVo manages to release an update themselves in a few months or even years from now.
There’s no telling how long ViVo will support their products for but hopefully it won’t be too long given all of its other positives.
To begin with, ViVo is powered by a Quad-Core processor that is assisted by 3GB of RAM. That’s a fairly good setup for managing all of your favourite applications and games without any major hiccups or unexpected performance drops.
For software, users are treated to Android Nougat 7.1 which comes pre-installed with several features including Google Assistant and an easy way to sync contacts from your old smartphone to ViVo (if it’s not supported).
As far as future upgrades go, there’s nothing here so you can’t really expect anything new in terms of software improvements until ViVo releases their own update a few months or years down the line.
The ViVo V23 will be an excellent media player. It is both well-rounded and feature-packed, with plenty of capacity, performance, and storage space.
The only thing you’ll need to do is decide if its interface is right for you. It won’t be for everyone—but then again, it probably won’t need to be.
For those who are looking for a relatively inexpensive but feature-rich media player that can tackle everything from movies and TV shows to photos and music, the ViVo V23 will be ideal.
