Created date: 10/20/2019, 09:36:07, Updated date: 04/16/2020, 12:26:56

We've conducted a detailed review of the vivo U3, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the vivo U3

Vivo U3's size

The vivo U3 is 3.0 inches (76.5 mm) wide, 6.4 inches (162.2 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (8.9 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the vivo U3, it weighs about 193 oz (193 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the vivo U3, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Vivo U3's screen

The vivo U3 has a 6.53 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the vivo U3 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of vivo U3

The vivo U3 has an extremely high processing power of 2.0GHz+1.7GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The vivo U3 has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The vivo U3 is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

Vivo U3's storage capacity

The vivo U3 has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the vivo U3 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of vivo U3

The vivo U3 has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The vivo U3 is equipped with a rather powerful 16 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

The battery performance of vivo U3

The vivo U3 has a battery with a quite large capacity of 5000 mAh. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the vivo U3 is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

Overall assessment of vivo U3

The vivo U3 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
