Choosing a Vivo V9...

Recommended Posts

My Samsung j7 is getting slower and more full. I plan to replace it soon. I have always bought bigger name brands so far. 

The Vivo V9 is the only way I can get 4gb ram/64gb memory/6 inch screen without spending a lot. 

Has anyone tried Oppo/Vivo what has their experience been? Would they recommend against it in favour of bigger names? 

Any advice appreciated.

Oh, I forgot the oft discussed Xiaomi MI phones, with the pure Android OS, the Mi A1 is available now at Lazada for 5,710 baht, 4 GB, 64 GB, but it's screen is only 5.5 in, and the Mi A2 which was launched in April 2018 and is not yet available at the Thai online sellers yet, but should be soon, which has about the same size body but a 5.99 in screen (77.4 screen-to-body ratio vs 70.1 screen-to-body ratio).  To me the Mi A2 is well worth waiting for it this line interests you.

I bought my wife a vivo v9. Have used it at times to help her with things. Its a lot lighter and cheaper feeling than my phone. Im not sure what settings she has applied so most of the things i dislike about could maybe be altered. 

Not sure what you want to specifically know about but for the price it seems ok. Battery seemed very good also. 

Dad also told me he bought an oppo and loves it but he is overseas so I don't know much about it. He came from an iphone.

I have the Xiaomi MI Pure Android for about 9 months. Probably the best all around device I have owned due to it being Pure Android.

If your not familiar with Pure Android, it's the OS with NO bloat. According to the manufactures agreement with Google, they can not add apps that no one uses or wants. No clutter, no taking up storage space.

Pure Android also get Google updates first and on time. My phone came with Android version 7.1 and I am now on Android 8 Oreo.  I also get security patches every month.

You will never get this type of support from any of the major manufacturers like Samsung and others until they provide Pure Android as their OS.

IMO, a Pure Android device is the way to go even if you have to give up a 1/2 inch of screen...

I bought a Vivo last year, 9000 Baht. I was pleased with it and I advised my friend to buy one too. He is also happy with his Vivo.

My daughter recently got a Vivo V9, traded in her old iPhone 6, she's happy with it, does all the stuff she needs with a good battery life.

I've had the Vivo 7+ for 9 months. I'm very happy with it. I put Microsoft Launcher on it, it looks/works great. The one surprising disappointment is that this model is not Wifi 5G compatible. Be careful and read the specs before you buy.

I've had both. Oppo was ok, but if you need any service, they hide themselves away in a cubbyhole in a building behind Central Rama 9.

 

Vivo has proven ok, though it does present occasional irritating issues, such as the touchscreen not working.

You could also give your current phone a full factory reset, load on just the apps you really use

and see how it performs. It might be just fine.

That said when my Samsung Note 3 stopped working (I was very happy with it)

I bought a Xiaomi, Redmi 5 Plus, phone. 6k baht. I am very happy with it.
