Vivo V30e 5G: Should You Buy It?

The Vivo V30e 5G gets a 6.78-inch 3D curved AMOLED Display which has 120Hz refresh rate and a full HD+ resolution. The panel is in line with most other competitors but some of them, such as the Poco X6 Pro, offer a sharper display. However, the Poco X6 Pro lacks in some other departments as a result it doesn’t become a real challenger.

The handset is powered by the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 processor paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage. This is where the V30e 5G lacks majorly, as its processor is straight up a disappointment in a segment where options like Snapdragon 7 Gen 3, MediaTek Dimensity 7200, and more exist. Not that the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 is poor chipset, but when considering the price of the smartphone, it underperforms a lot in comparison to the competition.

If that wasn’t enough, Vivo is offering only 8GB RAM at a price of Rs 29,999 while 12GB is a must in this range. Storage-wise, there isn’t a lot to complain about as only one other option, the Poco X6, gets you 512GB of storage in the segment while most others stick to 256GB.

It has a dual rear camera setup, a 50MP Sony IMX882 main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor, and an Aura light. There’s a 50MP sensor on the front for selfies and video calls, which also supports Autofocus. We cannot comment on the cameras as of now as we haven’t used the device, but if on-paper specs are taken into consideration, the sensor setup seems practical and useful.

A 5500mAh battery with support for 44W fast charging backs the device. The battery capacity is ample but the charging speeds could have indeed been in the 60W to 80W range.

Vivo V30e 5G runs on Android-14 based FunTouch OS 14 and will receive 3 major Android OS updates and 4 years of security patches. That’s standard for most new smartphones that launch in this range. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS and a USB-C port for charging. The handset is also IP64-rated.

Vivo V30e 5G: Top Alternatives

The Vivo V30e 5G, as we mentioned, isn’t the best in its class, and its competitors are already ahead in several areas. As a result, we have compiled a list of the top 3 alternatives for the Vivo V30e 5G so you can consider all options before you spend your money. The alternatives include:
