vivo V27 5G: First look and initial review

The star of the show is the stunning 50MP Ultra-Sensing Camera.

vivo has just launched the vivo V27 Series, composed of the vivo V27 5G and vivo V27e, featuring the Aura Portrait Algorithm. Today, our focus is on the vivo V27 5G, which boasts a stunning 50MP Ultra-Sensing Camera, an eye-catching Photochromic 2.0 Emerald Green color, and an ultra-thin grip.

We’re going to take a quick look at the phone and share our thoughts and first impressions as we build up to a full review.

Inside the Box

The unboxing experience of the vivo V27 5G is nothing special. The packaging is a silver-colored box with vivo’s branding.

Inside the box, the handset comes with a standard set of accessories. Missing, though, are the USB-C wired earphones and/or a USB-C to headphone jack dongle. Otherwise, everything is in order.

First Impressions

Opening the box, you’re greeted by the vivo V27 5G unit. And the first thing you’ll notice is its size. The handset’s 6.78-inch AMOLED display is larger than most in the same price range.

The phone has a minimalist aesthetic and an ultra-thin grip with a thickness of just 7.36mm. It also boasts a 60-degree curved screen and a 3D back panel that blends smoothly into the 2.3mm thin frame. On the hand, the handset is very ergonomic and comfortable to hold.

Our review unit, in Emerald Green, is mesmerizing to look at. The design resembles natural marble. It retains its predecessor’s color-changing ability, now in its second iteration called the Photochromic 2.0 technology, which transitions to a darker green hue when exposed to sunlight.

The AMOLED display measures 6.78 inches with a full HD+ resolution and a punch-hole cutout for a 50MP selfie camera. The display is bright and vibrant with deep blacks, and excellent color reproduction, while the colors are not overdone.

The top and side bezels of the screen are very narrow, which gives it an almost full-screen viewing experience. Meanwhile, the bottom bezel has almost the same thickness as the other bezels, which allows for a more uniform look.

On the back of the phone, we have a large rectangular camera module that houses three cameras (the 50MP OIS Ultra-Sensing primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP macro lens) and the Aura Light. The module has a matte metal finish, offering a stylish contrast to the shiny rear panel.

The vivo V27 5G also promises to deliver impressive performance with its MediaTek Dimensity 7200 processor. It has a large memory capacity of up to 12GB RAM (with an additional 8GB extended RAM) and up to 256GB of storage. It also supports fast charging with up to 66W. The battery capacity is 4600mAh.
