Vivo V9 AND iPhone X : The Price Point of View

March 18-the was the release date of the new VIVO V9 in India. The Chinese technology company “VIVO communication technology co” has presented on the market their high productive handset VIVO V9 which we will compare with iPhone X and try to see them both from a price point of view.

There is a price difference within about 300-400 USD that you might consider if you want to choose your next phone. On the official APPLE site, you can find iPhone 10 on the price of 999$, on the other hand, you can get VIVO V9 on the price of 400$.

In this article, we will compare the features that users are more interested in: body and design, display, camera, battery, CPU and memory, sensors. The new product of the Chinese company has definitely something worth picking a second look at.


Let’s start with the body of the VIVO V9 its dimensions (in mm) are  154.80 x 75.00 x 7.90 comparing to the iPhone X  143.60 x 70.90 x 7.70 differences are small in this actually VIVO V9 is little lighter 150g, next to the iPhone with 174g. As to the colors that they come in the APPLE product comes in: silver, gold, and black. The stock colors of VIVO V9 are Pearl Black and Gold. There is no argument that both phones have really nice sleek design making them even more visually wanted. Now let’s go a little deeper in the specs and see their displays.


With a screen size of 5.80 inches iPhone 10 has a smaller, but Super Retina HD  display with higher resolution 1125×2436 pixels comparing to the V9  IPS LCD display with screen size 6.30 inches and resolution of 1080×2280 pixels. So far we can’t find any significant differences between the two phones so let’s pick a look at their cameras.


If you are from the users that choose the phone by its camera here maybe you will prefer the new VIVO V9 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flashlight keeps on high quality your precious moments and also 24-megapixel front camera becomes the better photo decision. Coming on the other side with a double LED flashlight and 12-megapixel rear camera it’s not a match with its 7-megapixel front camera. In this category, I think we can all agree that VIVO V9 is the undisputed winner, but let’s further and see which phone is worth buying from a price point of view.


Here we got to the place to compare the Snapdragon 626 owned by VIVO V9 with the Apple A11 bionic CPU in iPhone 10. Not a great difference and yet important for some users.

The V9 has an eight-core processor working at 2,2Ghz while the iPhone has only six cores on its CPU at working frequency 2.39GHZ. Memory installed for both of the devices is as follows 64 GB of internal storage expandable to up to 256 GB using microSD (dedicated slot)  also of 4 GB RAM on the VIVO V9 smartphone and for the iPhone 10, 64 or 256 GB of internal storage without support of any external memory slots, 3 GB RAM to ensure its smooth work.


iPhone 10 comes with a set of five sensors (Face ID, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer) with the same count and a slight difference the VIVO has (Fingerprint (rear-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass). Here it’s only up to you to decide what you prefer more, FACE ID feature or fingerprint security. Time to take a look and compare both handsets with their batteries their type and life.


Sometimes when you literally need one more minute to finish up something important your phone dies and you really wish you had just a little better battery with a little longer life, here we will compare VIVO V9 and the iPhone 10 exactly by this indicator. For the iPhone, we got Non-removable Li-Ion 2716 mAh battery (10.35 Wh) with talk time Up to 21 h (3G) and music play up to 60 h. VIVO V9 comes with Non-removable Li-Ion 3260 mAh battery and provides approximately 16 hours of talk time and 67 hours of music time. It’s up to you to decide what your needs are.

As a conclusion, we can say that from a financial point of view VIVO V9 is actually a pretty good choice for a highly productive smartphone at a very good price even comparing with iPhone X. It can provide excellent camera, good battery time really smooth body and design at an acceptable price.
