The vivo V25 smartphone is usually displayed in stores and kiosks with imma, vivo’s virtual Ambassador. It’s a sleeve that slides out to reveal the gray box containing the device and its freebies.

It’s an unassuming box with an industrial aesthetic such as black and gray dual-tone color scheme, embossed letters, and a textured surface.

Unboxing it immediately reveals the vivo V25 smartphone wrapped in protective plastic.

Underneath the phone is a FREE phone case. It’s transparent which means the gorgeous Photochromic design is still visible while the device remains protected.

It has a protective flap for the USB Type-C port which is useful for many but annoying to some.

The vivo V25 charger has a maximum rated output of 44 Watts. The USB Type-C cable has normal length and the SIM ejector pin has a handle that looks like a heart when attached to its paper holder.

The FREE earphones has a normal 3.5mm audio plug but the vivo V25 only has a USB Type-C port, not a 3.5mm audio jack. There’s a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio jack adaptor included in the box.

Hands on with the vivo V25 smartphone!

Hands on with the vivo V25 smartphone!

 

I have the Sunrise Gold color variant of the vivo V25. It’s a pretty smartphone with a slim profile and tips the scale at 186 grams only.

Aside from the color, the triple rear camera array on its back stands out with its pronounced rings.

At the bottom of the vivo V25 are its loudspeaker, USB Type-C port, microphone, and SIM card tray. You’ll also notice the subtle vivo logo on the lower left corner of the phone’s back panel.

The vivo V25 is a dual-SIM smartphone with dedicated slots for two nano-SIM cards. The second SIM card slot can also accommodate a microSD memory card.

 

Photochromic design

Photochromic design

You might have noticed the changing color of the vivo V25’s back panel. From a golden hue, it can change to solid orange when viewed in a bright environment.

This is called Photochromic Design by vivo and makes the phone even more interesting.

 

Home screen and apps

Home screen and apps

This is how the home screen of the vivo V25 looks like right after unboxing. There are several pre-installed apps like Lazada, Spotify, foodpanda, Netflix, and more.

These apps can be easily uninstalled but some of vivo’s apps like the V-appstore and Browser have too much notifications.

About phone and storage.

The About Phone page reveals a MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset with a 2.4GHz octa-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, 8GB of additional virtual RAM, Android 12 OS, and 256GB of internal storage.

Only 24.22GB of the total storage is used upon unboxing. That means around 232GB of free storage for games, pictures, videos, and other files.
