4. Vivo V7+

Proclaimed on the 1st of September 2017, the Vivo V7+ joined the growing list of smartphones placing more focus on the front facing camera rather than the primary sensor on the rear. The Vivo V7+ comes with a phablet sized 6.0 inches display and despite the size, is very lightweight (weighs only 160 grams with the built-in battery combined). From a logical point of view, this could be attributed to the plastic material used in building the device; would have definitely weighed more if it came with a metal or ceramic body.

Moving on to why the Vivo V7+ is on this list; the device comes with a monster 24 megapixels sensor on the front as its selfie camera. This definitely will shoot the best of pictures, selfies, and videos but in order to further fine-tune the experience, Vivo incorporated the 24 MP lens with features like Face Beauty, Front flash, Group selfie, Boken Mode, Palm Capture, Mirrored Selfie and Timer.

Other Key Specifications of the Vivo V7+ smartphone include;

  • Screen/Display: 6.0 inches HD+ 720 x 1440 Pixels display
  • Primary/Rear camera: 16 megapixels with LED flash
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Internal storage: 64 GB
  • CPU: Octa core Snapdragon 450 1.8 GHz processor
  • Operating System: Android v7.1 Nougat
  • Battery: Non-removable 3,225 mAh Lithium Ion battery
  • Price: $450
