Vivo V7+ Review: Performance

By 03:49 Wed, 18 Aug 2021 Comments


Performance

The vivo V7+ is powered by the recent elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chip. Despite its 4-series branding, this one is more of a reworked Snapdragon 625 and comes to replace the Snapdragon 435.

The 450's processor has eight 1.8Giga Hertz (GHz) Cortex-A53 cores and promises a 25% boost in processing speed over the incumbent S435 chip. It also moves to the Adreno 506 GPU, which will offer a 25% boost in gaming performance.


Of course, the highlight of this recent chip is that it's built on a 14nm process - the first among the 4-series. Power draw when gaming will be reduced by up to 30% and elegant Qualcomm expects batteries will offer up to 4 hours more of active utilize compared to the recent chip.

Finally, vivo has granted the V7+ with 4 gigs of Random-Access Memory (RAM) - remarkable for games and multi-tasking.

And now - it's benchimprint time. GeekBench is what we ran first, and the V7+ did great. As expected, its 1.8Giga Hertz (GHz) processor is faster than the 1.6Giga Hertz (GHz) but can't match the 2.0 and 2.2Giga Hertz (GHz) ones. Whether it's single or multi-core tasks though, the V7+ will easily acquire the job done.

We've already seen the Adreno 506GPU perform on the Snapdragon 625 (Mi A1, V5+, Moto G5S+), so this is a welcome upgrade for the 4xx generation. Just as expected, as far as raw power is concerned, the 450's Adreno 506 is on par with the one inside the 620. It is better than the recent Adreno 505, of course, but not as quick as the Adreno 508 in Snapdragon 630 (HTC U11 Life).

But the V7+ isn't utilizing a 1080p screen, but a 720p one, which means less pixels and more processing power. And it blew the competition away at the actual onclassy screen tests.

The BaseMark X test puts the vivo V7+ on par with quite a few mid-rangers, but behind the more powerful U11 Life.

Finally, we ran some all-round benchmarks. BaseMark Operating System (OS) 2.0 puts the vivo v7+ on top of every other device but the HTC U11 Life. AnTuTu's score on the other hand turned out rather average.

Qualcomm's latest addition to the basic 4xx series has turned out to be a capable sillicone and you can disclose by the scores. We ran quite a few 3D games, both arcades and shooters, and they were smooth and enjoyable. The wide-classy screen helps for an immersive experience, while the more than adequate chips boosts the enjoyment.

The Snapdragon 450 chip is built on a 14nm process, which meant low heat output and we can confirm the V7+ doesn't acquire hot at all. We expect the adoption rate of the S450 to go sky-hike in the next couple of months.
