Vivo recently launched its latest V-series of smartphones- the V27 Pro, the V27e and the V27. The Vivo 27 Pro has a stunning 6.78-inch FHD+ (120 Hz) display that makes the colours pop when watching a video, and the gaming experience is much smoother thanks to its 120Hz refresh rate. It uses MediaTek’s Dimensity 8200, built on a 4nm node process, and there are two RAM options available — 8GB and the 12GB RAM variant.

Pricing and availability

The Vivo V27 Pro was launched in India with three variants, but in the UAE, Vivo has only launched the regular Vivo V27 and not the Pro version. The only difference between the two is that the Pro uses the more powerful MediaTek’s Dimensity 8200 while the regular version uses the weaker MediaTek’s Dimensity 7200 processor.

Design and display: The Magic Blue

The Vivo V27 Pro’s design hasn’t changed much compared to its predecessor, the Vivo V25 Pro, except for the camera housing structure design, which has been modified a bit and looks better compared to its predecessor.

But unlike the Vivo V25 Pro, where the screen’s peak brightness level was revealed (1,300 nits), Vivo hasn’t disclosed that information for the Vivo V27 Pro. Though it confirmed that it supports HDR10+ video playback, its AMOLED display supports 1 billion colours, and its display supports a 120Hz refresh rate.

On the flip side, its display is not protected with Corning’s Gorilla Glass or similar display protection glass, nor does it offer dust and water resistance. Also, it doesn’t offer stereo speakers.

Including at least Corning Gorilla Glass and stereo speakers would have greatly justified the phone’s price.

Features and performance

Vivo V27 Pro uses a MediaTek Dimensity 8200 octa-core processor manufactured on a 4-nanometer process. The phone is available in 8 GB and 12 GB variants of RAM along with 128 GB or 256 GB of storage.

Other hardware features include Bluetooth 5.3, NavIC, USB-C, and it supports seven different 5G bands.

The Vivo V27 Pro comes with Funtouch OS13, based on Android 13, and promises users two years of guaranteed software updates and three years of security patch updates.

Vivo’s Funtouch OS 13 is very customizable. For example, you can change the animation effects, the speed of routine tasks such as unlocking the phone and accessing the home screen, and much more. You can also create multiple user and guest user profiles to ensure nobody accesses your data in your absence.

Camera: 4K at 60PFS Video

There are three cameras on the back of the Vivo V27 Pro—a 50 MP wide primary camera, an 8 MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP macro camera. On the front, it uses a 50MP front camera.

It can record video up to 4K at 60 FPS, and it has both OIS and EIS for stable video recordings- even on the front camera that you can use to vlog if you’re looking forward to getting into that. You can also edit videos using built-in transitions to upload your next vlog on the go.

It also has different capture modes such as Supermoon, Live Photo, High Resolution, Long Exposure, Time Lapse, Double Exposure, Super Night Mode, and Portrait Mode.

Battery & Charging

The Vivo V25 Pro was equipped with a 4830 mAh battery is reduced to 4,600 mAh on the Vivo V27 Pro. It could be due to reducing the overall weight of the phone from 190g to 182g. But it’s a downgrade.

On the positive side, the phone can charge from 0% to 50% in 19 minutes, whereas it would take 15 minutes for the Vivo V25 Pro to charge from 0% to 40%.
