Recently, vivo launched its latest V25 series introducing three new models the V25, V25e and V25 Pro. Dubbed as Night Portrait Master, the vivo V25 series offers outstanding night photography, great hardware specs and a stunning color-changing feature.

Among the three models, we have on our hands the vivo V25 for our first impressions then after a few weeks we will do a full review to better see what this nice-looking mid-range phone can do.

The vivo V25 ships in a silver packaging retail box made of thick cardboard material. The top area of the outer box has a debossed effect found on the V25 name as well as the vivo logo which gets an additional hologram foil printing. On its sides are a vivo V25 5G model logo and a FIFA World Cup logo in which vivo is one of its official sponsor this year.

The inner box has a black packaging color with a few specs and manufacturing details found on the back.

Opening the box you’ll immediately see the vivo V25 unit with another inner compartment that holds its accessories.

Inside the box of the vivo V25 it consists of the following:

  • vivo V25 unit
  • Protective Clear Case
  • Wired Earphone
  • USB-C to 3.5mm Audio Adapter
  • USB-C Cable
  • 44W Power Adaptor
  • SIM Ejector Tool

  • Warranty Card
  • Screen Protector (Pre-Applied)

Design and Display

The vivo V25 has an ultra-thin body design with thickness at 7.79mm, a flat-edged design and weighs only 186 grams. So far it’s still comfortable to hold with just one hand even with the given load and depth of the phone.

The back panel is made of durable polycarbonate material with its colour changing fluorite AG glass panel that features a Photochromic version 2.0. With the Photochromic version 2.0 the rear panel of the V25 changes colors when subjected to a strong sunlight or UV light.

In the case of our review unit that comes in Sunrise Gold color, when exposed to sunlight it changes between beautiful shades of yellow to orange.

Still at the back you have a triple camera setup housed in a square type camera module design with two large circular lens arranged vertically and just next to it is another camera lens with LED flash on top of it.

The aluminum frame of the device gets a nice shiny reflective design. On the right side you have the volume rockers and power/sleep button while on other side you have nothing there.

SIM Card tray, microphone, USB-C port and speaker grille are housed at the bottom then another microphone on the top.

At the top of the screen you have the front receiver and a tiny waterdrop notch that houses the front camera. Bezels around the screen are slightly thin except for the bottom chin which is a bit thicker.

Looking at the front you have a large 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with resolutions at 2404×1080 pixels and a 90Hz refresh rate.


As we’ve mentioned, the vivo V25 sports a triple-camera setup with its primary lens comprising of a 64MP OIS Ultra-Sensing Camera with hybrid stabilization.

The front facing camera is equipped with a 50MP lens that has auto focus support for you selfies.

Initial Impressions

The general design of the new vivo V25 is very attractive, better looking and premium which stands out from the rest of the mid-range phones available in the market today. The colour changing AG glass panel feature on its back cover is unique, eye-catching and appealing.

Seeing the display for the first time reveals a colorful, bright and very vibrant screen with nice details as well as the sharp text that are easy to read. With the 90Hz refresh rate scrolling on the vivo V25 is smooth and fast.

The camera offers good quality photos and it has a set of upright internal hardware specs built on the device like a large storage capacity, more memory and long-lasting battery with fast charging feature.

Overall, the vivo V25 with just a few days of testing left us with a positive result. It is a very capable and modest mid-range phone that probably many fans or users will like the new features and design of the phone.
