To follow up the already impressive V30 and V30 Pro, vivo is back with another smartphone, the vivo V30e. This latest entry in vivo’s signature mid-range V Series lineup is the most affordable of this year’s models, though make no mistake, this phone still packs a bevy of features that promise to make it a great partner for mobile photography lovers.

This is thanks to the phone’s Sony IMX882 50MP main camera that is paired with vivo’s signature Aura Light Portrait system, now in its 3.0 version. With the latest Aura Light 3.0, the phone should be able to capture even better portraits in the daytime and at night.

That’s not all there is to the V30e though as the phone is also a well-rounded mid-range device. For starters, it’s powered by a capable new processor, not to mention that it has a big battery and a bright AMOLED screen.

So, in case you need more convincing, here’s a rundown of what makes the vivo V30e a delightful mobile photography partner!

Eye-Catching and Solidly Built

Even before getting into its camera capabilities and performance, the vivo V30e is already a stunner design-wise. Available in Coco Brown and Cloud White, the V30e features a unique pattern on the back for both colors that’s both sleek and eye-catching.

What’s more, the phone is quite slim, making it comfortable to hold, whether you’re gripping it horizontally while playing games or vertically when scrolling through social media.

That’s not all there is looks-wise though as the phone also features an IP64 dust and water resistance rating. Thanks to this, the V30e can survive submersion in water of up to 5 feet for over 30 minutes. This is a great feature to have, especially given that an IP rating is typically reserved for upper mid-range to flagship smartphones.

The protection isn’t just from water and dust though as the phone packs Schott Xensation screen protection. Thanks to this, the phone’s display is better protected from nicks and scratches.

Speaking of the display, the phone has a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution. Thanks to this, the screen has vibrant color output and deep blacks, making it a great match for binge-watching your favorite movies and shows.

Sony IMX882 Main Camera + Aura Light 3.0 for Excellent Portraits and More

Now, we move on to the cameras. For this latest V30 Series entry, vivo went with a 50MP Sony IMX882 main camera that’s paired with an ultrawide shooter at the back.

Right beside the dual camera setup is the Aura Light Portrait 3.0 module which, as with previous models, looks very much like a mini ring light.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Aura Light, this system is not just your ordinary smartphone flash as it’s more powerful, not to mention that it can be tweaked to make the light warm or cool, giving users lots of control for their portrait photo’s color temperature. This means users can change up the colors to their liking or to better match their environment, all without using filters.

Plus, because it’s a powerful flash, portrait photos at night look great, with the subject being well-lit while the background has a nice background blur effect. Here are some samples:

As you can see, the portraits taken with this phone look great even in low light. Though that’s not all the phone excels at.

Thanks to the Sony IMX882 main shooter, the V30e also works great in various lighting conditions and scenarios. With the main camera, not only can you take great daytime photos, but you can also capture eye-catching night shots and more.

Here are more samples:

To give you more versatility for photography, the V30e also has a capable ultrawide shooter that can work well for landscapes. In low light, you can also use the Night Mode for brighter photos. Check out the ultrawide samples here:

Finally, the phone has a 32MP selfie shooter. With this, users can capture quality selfies that are ready for sharing on social media. It’s also a promising match for vlogging. Here are some selfie samples:

With the V30e’s combination of cameras and Aura Light, the phone no doubt delivers for photography. On top of this, it’s also a capable performer for gaming and daily use.

Latest Generation Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 and 8GB + 8GB Memory for Extra Performance

For any phone, performance is important as having a premium build and cameras is no use if the phone is slow. With that in mind, vivo packed the V30e with a Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset.

This is Qualcomm’s latest chipset that is billed to be even more powerful than the previous generation 600 series SoCs. In practice, this holds true as the phone performs well for gaming.

With MOBA and FPS games like Wild Rift and Call of Duty: Mobile, the phone runs well at higher settings and at a smooth 60 FPS. What’s more, the phone even has enough power to run more demanding games like Genshin Impact.

Gaming aside, the phone is also a reliable daily driver as its chipset helps the phone continue to be fast and snappy, whether using email and social media apps or doing some light photo and video editing.

It also helps that the phone has 8GB of RAM along with 8GB of extended RAM. This extended memory feature lets the phone “borrow” memory from the internal storage so that it’s still responsive even when lots of apps are open.

Big Battery, Fast Charging

Even with the phone’s performance, the V30e is a long-lasting phone when it comes to battery life. This is thanks to the phone’s large 5,500mAh battery that, in our experience, helps the phone last for well over a day on a single charge. Depending on your use, the phone can last for a day and a half or even two days.

Finally, charging is a breeze with this phone as it has 44W fast charging support. With this, users can get hours of use by just charging the phone for a few minutes.
