Photos taken with Vivo V9 proved to be mixed in terms of quality. We found that the phone could do well in better lighting but it could not deliver better results in difficult conditions. In daylight, Vivo V9 focuses better and gets the exposure correct. However, the output was a bit grainy and landscape shots weren’t clear. Macro shots came out better, due to which the phone was easily able to differentiate between the subject and the background. Camera quality degrades in low light.

The battery is weak and if you use the phone all the time, you will be looking for a charger by evening. Camera performance is better but it responds in low light.
