Reviews for the Vivo V29

75% Vivo V29 review: Putting you in your best light
Source: Hardware Zone English EN→zh-CN
The Vivo V29 comes across as a niche offering in a crowded midrange smartphone market, but it does fulfil its niche well. If you take away its ring light and photography/videography features, it becomes a stylish, but standard midrange smartphone with performance and a price tag to match. It’s sufficient for day-to-day use, with perks like a high-resolution AMOLED panel, dual 5G SIM support, and long enough battery life to get you through the day. However, if you value the Aura Light 2.0 ring light and its strong main camera performance, the S$649 Vivo V29 becomes a very attractive option for Android phone users who prioritise its selfie or portrait-taking capabilities. Frankly, the built-in lights are far from what professional-grade (or even Taobao-grade) ring lights are truly capable of, but the light’s portability and output are commendable. You don’t need to drag extra accessories around, and it’s sufficiently bright enough for dimly lit or dark venues. You can adjust it further if it’s too bright, too.

The Vivo V29 (known as Vivo V29 5G in Singapore) retails at S$649 in Starry Purple and Noble Black, at official Vivo storefronts (Bugis Junction, Causeway Point, NEX), and retail partner outlets, such as Lazada, Shopee, Best Denki, Challenger, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman, other authorised sellers.

80% Vivo V29 and V29 Pro review: Elevating your portraits, but with a few quirks
Source: Android Central English EN→zh-CN
If you're on a tight budget, the Vivo V29 already gives you a solid option. It handles your everyday stuff like scrolling through socials, watching videos, jamming to music, and some light gaming without breaking a sweat. But, if you're a serious gamer or you're thinking of doing photo and video editing on your phone, it might be worth splurging a bit more for the V29 Pro. In the photography showdown, each of these phones has its own strengths and weaknesses. The V29 Pro nails vibrant colors and handles challenging lighting, but the V29 edges ahead in the fine details game, especially in macro mode. Despite that, my vote goes to the V29 Pro for photography, mainly thanks to its beefier processing power.

80% Vivo V29 review: Perfect portraits at a bargain price
Source: Pocket Lint English EN→zh-CN
The Vivo V29 is one of the best phones you can buy for taking selfies, but beyond that, it also provides a brilliant main camera, a lovely display and excellent value for money. If you're looking for a camera-focused mid-range smartphone in this price range, it's very easy to recommend, as in many cases, and especially with selfies, its photographic performance will outperform even the likes of the Pixel 7a. It's not perfect - the lacklustre ultra-wide, single speaker, and mediocre gaming chops are sure to be deal breakers for some. But the main problem lies with its availability; I'm in the UK, and a lot of our readers are in the States. The Vivo V29 hasn't officially released in either region and likely never will. This might mean that getting your hands on one for a good price becomes very difficult. If you're in a supported region, though, the Vivo V29 is well worth a look. It's stylish, shoots great photos and is half the price of most flagship phones.

Vivo V29 5G Review: An Excellent Camera Phone
Source: TechLekh English EN→zh-CN
Vivo V29 is a really good camera phone. In recent years, Vivo has made good upgrades to the V series and the V29 is a good example of that. It is not a huge step up from the V27 but the upgrade in the camera sensor is a good one. It is better than before. Likewise, the 1.5K display is one of the best for the price. However, the switch to Snapdragon 778G chipset is underwhelming. Overall, the vivo V29 is a good phone albeit it is slightly more expensive than its competitors.

75% Vivo V29 review: a mid-ranger worth considering
Source: 91mobiles English EN→zh-CN
The Vivo V29, priced from Rs 32,999 and available in India, offers an enticing package featuring a robust design, a vibrant 3D AMOLED curved display, and impressive camera capabilities, especially in well-lit conditions. While it shares many features with its Pro counterpart, the slight compromise in the chipset and depth sensor is noticeable. The device captures portraits with a slight distortion around the edges of the subject. Additionally, its performance feels slightly underwhelming especially when compared to some of its competitors, like the OnePlus Nord 3 5G (review). That being said, the Vivo V29 performs admirably in everyday tasks and multitasking. It also excels in battery life and fast charging speeds. If you seek a smartphone with a focus on design and camera quality, the Vivo V29 proves to be a strong contender within its price range.

78% Vivo V29 Review: A well-balanced premium midrange phone
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English EN→zh-CN
Overall, the Vivo V29 is a well-balanced premium midrange phone. It’s a reliable choice for those seeking an attractive design and good cameras. Plus it’s worth noting that Vivo hasn’t overpriced the V29 in Nepal, as its prices here are similar to those in India. However, if a clean user software experience is more important to you, then Samsung Galaxy A54, Nothing Phone (1), and Honor 90 might be better choices. The Vivo V29 gains quite of a balance with a punchy curved AMOLED display, punchy cameras and the decent horsepower of the Snapdragon 778 chipset. It's a pretty ideal phone for multimedia usage and some social media-ready snaps. The 4600mAh battery lasts a bit less than the competition but a 80W inbox charger is appreciable. Overall, a fairly balanced premium midranger from Vivo.

80% Vivo V29 5G Review – Camera Above All Else

The vivo V29 5G is a reliable smartphone with excellence in some areas, but it has its caveats. Starting from RM1,899, it still sets a relatively high standard for midrange smartphones, and it’s clear that this is meant for those who prioritize the camera above all else, both front and back, with its Aura Light 2.0 taking it to the next level.

Vivo V29 Review: There’s Not Enough New Here
Source: Petapixel English EN→zh-CN
Only months after launching the V27 Pro and V27, Vivo comes back with the V29 as yet another option, giving its V-Series a fair bit of attention. Releasing successive models within the same calendar year is unusual for any brand, but Vivo seems to think pumping them out in shorter cycles is serving a market that wants them. What’s increasingly evident is that Vivo continues to funnel camera features from its X-Series flagships to mid-rangers like the V29. The odd product and launch cycle aside, the generous allocation of resources is such that this phone would be a serious contender against the typical mid-range choices in markets like North America. Most may never see it in action, which is a shame because performance and output tell a compelling story.

The all-new V29 retails starts at PHP 24,999 for the 12GB+256GB variant, making it the same price as its predecessor. Meanwhile, the 12GB+512GB variant that we have retails for PHP 26,999. If you’re interested, the phone is now on available in all vivo Concept Stores, dealers, and kiosks nationwide, as well as on Shopee, Lazada, TikTok, and the vivo Philippines official website.

Vivo V29 Review – Made For Photophiles
Source: Cashify English EN→zh-CN
So that was the all-new Vivo V29 that shined well in pretty much every aspect. I loved the design and in-hand feel of the phone. The curved display makes the content computation really good. While the battery backup isn’t really the best, the 80W fast charging support is good enough. Moreover, the performance is quite good as well. I did not face any issues while using it during my review period. All in all, the Vivo V29 seems like a solid mid-range phone that is made for those who love photography.

If you missed out on buying the vivo V27 5G and would like to own a gorgeous, sleek device, you’re better off getting the vivo V29 5G instead. The V29 5G upgrades all the best features of its predecessor to give users a more refined smartphone experience. We are still in love with the slim form factor, immersive screen, and powerful cameras.

As for the price, the vivo V29 is priced at Php. 24,999 for the 12GB+256GB storage, and Php 26,999 for the 12GB + 512GB storage and is a solid upgrade from the vivo V27. Aside from the upgraded camera performance, you get a lightweight design and an impressive quality display. The only downside for us would be the chipset, they could have opted for a different chip so that they could also accommodate gaming just like the V27. But if you are not into heavy gaming, and you usually play casual games then I think this would be enough.

The camera system is universally capable, with some particularly good selfies, dependable low-light performance and a unique temperature-changing flood light that can also be game-changing for your low-light portraits. All things considered, the vivo V29 may not be the most value you can extract from its price tag, but it just might be able to justify the premium.

Pixel 7a Destroyer? | Vivo V29 Unboxing & Full Tour

Unboxing the Vivo V29 with a full test of that impressive camera tech, gaming performance and beyond. If your priority is having one of the best camera phones for a mid-range price, the Vivo V29 is a pro that rivals the Pixel 7a. So here's everything you need to know and my early review of this stunning smartphone. The 50MP Quad Bayer primary camera is a pleasure to use, adapting automatically to all kinds of tricky shooting conditions. The Vivo V29 can even snap decent looking pics in near darkness thanks to the Aura Light flash. This is brighter than before with full manual control over the colour temperature. As well as a cracking camera, this mid-range phone also boasts good performance and dependable battery life. You have the FunTouch OS so the Vivo V29 is packed with good gaming features, and the likes of Genshin Impact can run on medium detail with a smooth frame rate (just don't bump the graphics to high).

The Vivo V29 is one of those interesting smartphones that makes a big play on a single feature – selfie quality. That it then is hugely successful as a general camera phone, with mostly good looks, dependable battery life and a bright, detailed screen is a testament to its overall quality. But for a better speaker setup, a bit more power or longer software support, it would be an instant recommendation.
