Vivo has started the new year with a bang, Vivo has launched the much-awaited smartphone Vivo V23 Pro 5G.

Vivo’s V series phones have been all about the selfie camera and over the last few years, we have seen Vivo experimenting in this regard. Pop-up cameras, dual cameras, eye-autofocus, high-resolution sensors, and in this time they have come up with color changing design.

So before we go dig deep into the review let’s have a look at the v23 pro’s specifications and price.

Some Specifications of Vivo v23 pro

The Vivo V23 Pro has a fascinating design. One of the colour variants, the Sunshine Gold, can change colours. It’s shimmery gold when indoors, but turns turquoise blue in the sun within 5-10 seconds. It’s the result of using fluorite AG glass that exhibits fluorescence under ultraviolet light, and looks fantastic.


Vivo V23 Pro 5G comes with a 6.56-inches 90Hz curved AMOLED display while it has 1300 nits of pick brightness and support for widevine L1 which means you will be able to watch FHD+ content on OTT apps.


The vivo v-series is known for being camera-centric, and this latest addition is no exception.

The phone comes with 108MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and 2MP macro sensor while there are 50MP + 8MP dual selfie cameras. The front, as well as rear camera, can shoot videos up to 1080p@30fps & 4K@60fps.

Vivo is known for selfie cameras and this time, Vivo has added two flashlights on the front which will help you when you take selfies at night.

These two spotlight makes a huge impact under low lights, you can also choose light temperature which is another good feature.

The front camera also takes good images even at night but somehow, it tries to whiten the images, in short, it won’t give you natural colours, it will make your face white.

Now I don’t think anyone will complain about this but if you’re that person who wants natural colours then you should skip the Vivo V23 Pro 5G.

Also, the front 8MP ultra-wide lens also takes a good image and there is no doubt about the 50MP front camera too. Overall, you will love the front cameras.

Coming to the rear camera, the 108MP sensor also takes good images in good light but again somehow, the sensor tries to add extra red colours under the low light and that’s why the night images will come out with a bit of red tint.

There is no issue when it comes to day photography, it takes good images with no problems. Also, the 8MP sensor does its job, no issue with that too.

Now, that 2MP macro sensor is just for number, so if you can, ignore it.

At the end, Vivo V23 Pro 5G has a Awesome camera specs and it also shoots good videos too.


The Vivo V23 Pro 5G doesn’t have a stereo Speaker, it only has a single bottom-firing speaker. The speaker is also loud no problems there but as this is not a budget smartphone, Vivo should have added dual speakers.

It also has a secondary noise cancellation microphone along with carrier aggregation which will help a lot in calls.

Overall, the speaker quality is average and there is no problem with calling.


The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 is a well-tested processor and we have seen the same processor in quite of few smartphones, so there is no doubt about performance.

Also, the Vivo V23 Pro 5G is running on Fun Touch OS 12 and it’s a well-optimized UI, so there won’t be any problem while using the smartphone in day to day life.

Good to see, Vivo has launched a smartphone with Android 12.

Now, keep in mind, Fun Touch OS comes with lots of pre-installed apps which is not the best experience, you will need to Uninstall all the third-party apps by yourself.

If you have never used Fun Touch OS then first watch some of the videos on YouTube and if you like the UI then go buy Vivo V23 Pro 5G.

So overall, there won’t be any kind of problem while playing games or even using a smartphone in day to day life, the only thing you need to consider is OS, everything else is perfect.

Battery Life

Yes, the Vivo V23 Pro 5G only has a 7.4mm body that means, the battery will be small.

So Vivo V23 Pro 5G has a 4,300mAh battery with 44W fast charging support. It will take about 30 minutes to charge from 1% to 63%.

In short, if you’re a heavy user then get ready to charge the device two times or if you’re a casual user like me then you need to charge the device at about 7 PM.

Early Verdict

Yes, Vivo V23 Pro 5G is worth buying because it has a unique design, great camera setup, powerful processor, fast charging, 7 5G bands, curved display and its priced at 39k which is not too expensive considering its specs.

Vivo V23 5G Pro is a camera-centric smartphone, so if you wanted to buy an Android smartphone with a good camera and powerful processor then you can consider this smartphone.
