vivo V25e Unboxing and First Impression


Filipinos love to celebrate and capture moments especially if shared with people who mattered most. With the advent of mobile photography, it’s easier for every family and barkadas to capture meaningful moments in a snap.

vivo continuously innovates to provide Filipinos with an affordable smartphone that sports a color-changing design and has strong imaging capabilities. Vivo launches not one, but three variants under the V25 Series - the vivo V25 Pro, vivo V25, and vivo V25e.

I was able to get my hands on one of these variants and I am very excited to share with you my unboxing experience as well as my initial impression of vivo V25e. So, let's start with the unboxing.

Unboxing the vivo V25e

The vivo V25e comes in a premium box with the front portion indicating the V25e branding; while the brand details—model number, IMEI number, serial number, color, among others, are imprinted on the back portion of the box.

You can also find the vivo V25e branding on the left and the vivo and Fifa World Cup partnership on the right. There is nothing to look at from the top and bottom portions.

Inside the Box and Accessories

After opening the lid of the box, you will find the vivo V25e smartphone wrapped in white matte plastic. I will set aside the device for now and see what else we get in the box.

Inside are the following: a SIM card ejector tool, quick start guide, important information (including the Warranty Card), USB power adapter, USB type-C to USB-A charging cable, silicone case, headset, and 3.5mm headphone jack adapter.

After unboxing, let us now take a look at the physical overview and my first impression of the device.

Design and Walk Around

For the design, the back of the vivo V25e features a color-changing Fluorite Anti-Glare (AG) glass panel which in itself is already a magical sight to behold, since it changes color when sunlight or UV rays hit the back panel. Also, I like this kind of finish because it is less susceptible to fingerprint smudges and scratches.

The vivo V25e is available in two colors: Diamond Black and Sunrise Gold. My unit comes in Sunrise Gold color and what’s unique about this color is when the back panel is exposed to direct sunlight for 5-6 minutes the whole back panel changes its color from gold to orange (except for the camera module), showing the shades of sunrise and sunset.

In addition to its design, the vivo V25e weighs 183g and has a thickness of 7.79mm. With its flat frame, the vivo V25e is sleek to look at and comfortable to hold.

On the front, the vivo V25e is equipped with a 6.44-inch Full HD+ (1080 x 2404) 90Hz AMOLED display. At the top, there’s a waterdrop design notch that houses the front-facing camera and the earpiece. Underneath the display is the fingerprint reader. A pre-installed screen protector is also found.
