I’ve been using the Vivo V7+ for a more than a week as I finalize my review. And one of the more intriguing features I found is the Face ID.
Vivo V7+ Face ID
The Vivo V7+ Face ID function easily “wakes up” the handset, simply by looking at it. It’s another security option that can work together with pattern unlock, PIN code and fingerprint. Once set up, Face ID works by bringing up the phone (in portrait mode) with you facing it. It’s fast and unlocks the phone almost instantly. It’s convenient, with no button presses needed.
And it’s smart too. I tried “tricking” Face ID with a photo, only to be refused with a “facial mismatch” error. And although it failed to unlock the phone when I contorted my face (yup, I tried it), the technology is smart enough to recognized me when I’m sporting a big smile or a very sullen pout (I registered a regular, expressionless look).
