Hands On Review
We took the V3 Max on our trip in Siargao and Bukidnon and took amazing photos and time-lapse videos with this handset.
There was no need to bring in a big camera for our travel because we are totally sold of the camera functions of this mobile phone. We can shoot practically what we can do with our DSLR and we can quickly upload and share the beautiful images on our Instagram and Facebook account.
The battery performance is far better from the other mobile phones that we’ve used in the past. With V3 Max, you can enjoy extended battery life that can last you of up to a full day usage on data and SMS. It slays major mobile brands when it comes to battery life.
We’re not a Fingerprint Sensor fan before but with V3 Max, we discovered that there’s a lot more to this function. When locking phones, we normally put a PIN number lock to protect our device. With V3 Max’s multi-fingerprint sensor, we learned that it’s much cooler to use it and be confident that in case of theft, our V3 Max will be safe from getting unlocked. And that means, our contents are safe from getting hacked or shared without our permission.
User Interface is very much user-friendly and easy to operate. There are few built-in apps stored on the freshly unboxed V3 Max and there’s still big room for your favorite apps for installing on your V3 Max phone.
On the downside, we tried to insert a USB OTG on our V3 Max and it can’t read it. It says it is USB OTG supported. We’ll still find a.way how to make this feature works.
On scale of 1-5, we’re giving the V3 Max a score of 5 for the overall satisfaction it gives for the user of this gadget.
Price and Availability
The Vivo V3 Max is now available in major retailers in Manila, Cebu, and Davao for a suggested price of P16,990.
