The interface packs in plenty of extras from Vivo, some helpful and a few not a lot, however at the very least the customisations to the primary areas such because the notification shade, and so on have been dialled down a bit in comparison with earlier variations.
The cameras are additionally one of many highlights of the cellphone.
