After a long time I changed my ancient handsets (a Nokia Lumia and a Samsung phone). A friend was raving about this phone and after months of indecision I decided to go for it. I love the phone for so many reasons, the major ones being 1. Dual Sim, finally don't have to go around carrying two handsets and charging two sets of phones. (because giving up either number was not an option) 2. I ahve option of using Data connection of either of my numbers and toggling between both 3. I also retain both my whatsapps because this phone has that cool feature whereby you can retain both the whatsapp!! pretty joyful about that 4. Love the screen and the phone design/look and feel 5. I dont need a google account but can download all apps without any account from the V Store. tnx Vivo for not making me a slave to google. 6. Its been about two months since my purchase and have not faced any problems whatsoever 7. Camera and video quality is decent. 8. Need to charge once a day. Battery life decent. 9. All apps working smoothly including my office mail through Microsoft Outlook, Amazon, Yahoo mail, Google maps etc 10. Love the fingerprint lock feature. Its secure and easier than typing in a password
I mean it... it really is a poor man's iPhone. I bought this as a replacement for my previous phone which was only a year old but used real hard. I got a decent exchange prize for my On5 pro and with the exchange and discount I ended up paying about 9400, at this price range this was a superb deal. The face recognition is superb, the screen is vibrant, the camera is awesome and the finger sensor at the back works without an issue. There is negative review about its battery but mine last me fine for the day. I use it on Youtube and Facebook for videos quite often and the only issue I face is the the live stream on Facebook do not load very often. The processor is a Snapdragon 450 which may not be the top of the line but it does it a damn good job.
If you looking for a value for money phone then do go for this, Vivo has more fancier phones but this one balances the want/willingness to buy to the cost/affordibility.
PS: I am sorry Samsung, I promise to return to buy your next phone if its as much as value for money as this Vivo V9 Youth
This phone is almost clone to IPhone X. This is the best feature of its display. Plus( 16MP front, 16Mp+2 MP rear) it has great camera which would give u perfact DSLR features to ur pics and it has an awesome selfie feature to give ur pics pretty looks without even editing it. AI Face lock is another great feature of this phone and vivo has its own set of apps to help the user in best possible way. It is worth buying it.
