vivo V20 unit (94)Personally, I thought that the previous couple of generations for vivo’s mid-range v-series were more of incremental upgrades. In fact, I’ve always voiced out my concern about the repeated use of the same SoC.

For their recent release though, the brand seems to have gone back to the drawing board, and at one glance, the new V20 series is already looking to be the “proper” upgrade that we deserve. A new design, a significant jump in hardware, and much more.

The question is, did they deliver? let’s take a look at the middle-man of the pack, the vivo V20, and find out.
