Vivo V19 Review: camera performance

May 23, 2020 15:45 IST

The consumer Vivo has aimed at with the V19 is the photography enthusiast, and on that front, there's quite a lot to like. The rear camera system gets a 48MP primary sensor, joined by an 8MP ultrawide lens and two sensors for macro and depth photography, both with 2MP sensors each. It seems to be the same system from the S1 Pro, but the V19 has the added ability of being able to shoot video in 4K at up to 60fps, albeit without optical image stabilisation, which would've been a nice bonus. Pictures taken with the V19 are well processed for a Vivo phone, with good dynamic range and frames with both light and dark areas being managed quite well. The ultrawide sensor is a strong performer, with minimal distortion and unlike other smartphone makers, there's no aggressive vivid colour profile added to images. That means there's no stark difference between pictures taken with the regular wide sensor and the ultrawide one. The Super Macro mode is fairly decent and captures a good amount of detail, even if the colours are a bit lacking. The dedicated Night Mode works pretty well too, and boosts the sharpness and exposure in low light scenarios without adding a whole lot of grain. Overall, images taken with this device are consistently good, and the main sensor even manages to capture some decent depth when put together with the 2MP dedicated sensor. Speaking of depth, the 32MP+8MP dual sensor setup on the front lets you take portrait selfies, and where most single sensor modules struggle with edge detection through AI, the V19 does a good job of detecting depth with the front facing cameras.
