Vivo V9 Review: Snapping Happiness On A Budget

When it comes to selfie-centric smartphones, Vivo stands out, and Badili offers the impressive Vivo V9, known for capturing high-resolution photos.

Although it has been in the market for a while, it still beats smartphones within its range. With its thin screen bezel and notch that sits at the top, the device is pretty interesting to look at. But does it have the hardware to justify it? Let’s take a look.

Design & Display

The Vivo V9 build took some inspiration from Apple with its top-notch display design, however, it’s smaller than the iPhone X. The notch also houses an earpiece, a selfie camera and proximity and ambient light sensors. It also has a tiny notification light above the earpiece. The body is made of metal and glass, which gives it a sleek and premium appearance.

The Vivo V9 also has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display. It’s large enough to be comfortable to use for extended periods and sharp enough to provide a great viewing experience. It’s also bright and colourful, making it perfect for watching videos and playing games.


The Vivo V9 is powered by Snapdragon 626 octa-core chipset and has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which is enough performance assurance for most people. You can be able to run multiple apps at the same time without lags.


Vivo V9 camera

The Vivo V9 boasts a dual camera setup at the back with a 16MP main camera and 5MP secondary camera. It takes decent photos in good lighting but can get slightly grainy in low-light conditions.

The front-facing camera is great sporting a 24MP selfie camera which takes good selfies in good lighting conditions.


The Vivo V9 comes with a 3260mAh battery that can last for a full day on a single charge with moderate usage. However, this phone doesn’t support fast charging.


The Vivo V9 is a great phone that feels great in your hands and would enchant buyers to get this phone. The good quality display and the impressive camera are what takes the cake with this phone. If you are a moderate user with a love of selfies, the Vivo V9 is worth considering.

The Vivo V9 is available on the official Badili website or any of their exclusive stores located at Ambience Mall, Ring Road, Westlands and Riara Road near Junction Mall for KES 13,079. Experience the quality of refurbished smartphones at Badili.
