The Vivo V20 SE is a good looking phone, but overall it is not able to compete with the Vivo V20. The design of the phone is different. While the look of Vivo 20 phone looks like Vivo X smartphone, Vivo V20 SE is not like that. This phone has a plastic body. This type of body is common in other smartphones in this price range.
One thing that matches the Vivo V20 SE and Vivo V20 is the 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display of the phone. Dewdrop notch has been given on the upper part of the phone, which some people may like more than the punch-hole design. Being an AMOLED display, the output of this phone is quite crisp and it is quite attractive to watch the content on it. It does not come with a high-refresh rate panel, but this feature is available in the Poco X3 of this price range. We would like to get the AMOLED panel instead of fast refresh rate, that too only for its colors. Taking advantage of the AMOLED panel, Vivo has given an in-display fingerprint scanner in it. Which is quite convenient to unlock the V20 SE.
The V20SE has curved edges, making it quite comfortable to hold. The top and bottom of the phone is flat. We liked the button placement of the phone a lot, everyone has been given space on the right side of the screen, due to which access to them becomes easy. On the left side of the phone, Vivo has placed a sim-tray on the upper part. Nano-SIM slot and microSD card slot are present in the phone tray.
Vivo has given two color options in the V20 SE phone, that is – Aquamarine Green and Gravity Black. We have the Gravity Black variant of the phone. The back panel of the phone is quite glossy and while holding it, fingerprints are left immediately on it. Vivo has also provided a cover in the box of the phone, which can overcome your problem. Apart from this, three cameras are located on the back panel of the phone, which you will miss seeing Oppo Reno 4 and Galaxy Note 20.
Talking about the specification, the Vivo V20 SE phone is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. The choice of this processor is quite surprising, because we have seen this processor in phones that are less expensive than the V20 SE. Vivo has given 8 GB RAM in this phone, which will help the phone in heavy work and multitasking. Apart from this, 128 GB storage will be available in the phone. However, you can increase it up to 1 TB via microSD card.
The battery of the Vivo V20 SE is 4,100 mAh, which is slightly less than the available battery capacity in this priced smartphone. Vivo has provided a 33 watt flashcharge charger with it, which will make this phone work faster. For connectivity, Vivo has provided Bluetooth 5, dual-band Wi-Fi and 4 navigation systems.
In terms of software, this phone works on FuntouchOS 11 just like Vivo V20. However, the Vivo V20 SE phone comes with Android 10 instead of Android 11. But Vivo has promised that it will soon introduce Android 11 update for this phone as well.
The phone’s UI is largely similar to the Vivo V20 UI. This smartphone has many bloatware pre-installed. We encountered apps like Facebook, V-Appstore and Snapchat. We will keep an eye on these apps to see if they spam us with notifications.
Talking about the camera, the primary camera of this phone is 48 megapixels, for macro shots, the phone has an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera. This hardware is slightly less than Vivo V20, which has a primary camera of 64 megapixels. The V series is known for its selfie camera, the Vivo V20 SE has a 32-megapixel selfie camera, which is quite right for this price.
