Design and Display
As it has a lot of similarities with Vivo V9, in terms of design. It has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD portray. With a sharp screen, it offers a variety of lightheaded colors, along with a decent distinction for an LCD panel, without giving any outdoor visibility problems. It gives a bluish cast on the downside. Though it does not provide the users with the option of adjusting the color temperature in default mode, you can choose considerably warmer tones under eye protection mode, which you can find in display settings.
It has the Funtouch OS software, which has a lot of customization options, characteristics, and features. A lot of people find the interface better than Oppo’s Color OS. There are a number of third-party applications that are already pre-installed on the phone. But the good thing for the users is that you can uninstall all of them anytime. The thing that disappoints users a bit is that it does not upholds HD streaming on Amazon, Prime, and Netflix.
At this price, you get a good Snapdragon 660 paired with RAM of 6GB and storage of 64GB. It provides you with a card slot, which you can use anytime to increase the secondary storage up to 256GB. We all know that playing games are such an important part of our daily life in the present time. So after going through many tests, Vivo V9 Pro gave a productive response regarding this thing. It runs a lot smoothly during day-to-day usage, and runs remarkably well during the usage of high-end games, without hanging the phone. Also, it has a fingerprint sensor, along with a face unlock, which runs very smoothly. It has a great call quality, along with dual SIM Dual VoLTE. It connects remarkably well through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, so connectivity ain’t a problem at all.
After comparing Vivo V9 and Vivo V9 Pro, we get to know that Vivo V9’s camera is better than that of V9 Pro. The rear camera is 13MP, primary camera, with a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera, that is, the camera used to take selfies, is 16MP. In good lighting, the camera captures a well-detailed picture with good focus, with reasonable dynamic and metering range. It works well outdoors as well. But when the lighting is a bit low, it depletes the image quality, thus rather giving you a bit steeply image. On the other hand, in better lighting, it gives a tough competition Realme 2 Pro. It gives a wide variety of modes, and the HDR Mode operates very well, enhancing the dynamic range as well. It has a very heart-warming front camera.

Audio and Battery
As informed in the beginning, Vivo V9 Pro has a 3260mAh battery, with a battery backup almost similar to Vivo V9. The charger is 10W, which charges quickly than most phones. However, you can always bring yourself a portable charger and recharge your phone on the go. If we talk about Vivo V9 Speakers, it has a mono speaker in the bottom, which gives a loud but average audio quality. It does not include Hi-Fi audio.
With all the good looks and the good storage capacity, along with better camera quality, especially the selfie camera, the performance of this phone is quite stable and durable in the long run. You get all these features at a very reasonable price. No doubt, phones like Xiaomi Mi A2 and Realme 2 Pro give better hardware and almost the same. But at last, after concluding everything, we get a strong Chipset, beautiful display, smooth handling, dedicated card slot, and the front camera is a single phone with a rational price. It seems a good buy indeed.
