Camera:

Looking into the camera, the best thing about this phone is its front camera. It has a 32-megapixel primary camera with an f/2.0 aperture along with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The primary selfie camera has a pretty wide field of view but the secondary one lets you get an even wider shot, though it adds a slight fish-eye effect.

Vivo V17 Pro shots good selfies. It handles HDR. The ultra-wide-angle camera captured slightly softer images. There is a Bokeh toggle, and portrait shots taken in this mode had good edge detection and background blur. These photos are oversampled, giving you 8-megapixel output instead of 32-megapixel shots, like you get when taking standard selfies. There is no stabilization, but the video quality with this primary front camera is good. Low-light photos were quite grainy but the fill-light helps here.

Coming to the rear cameras, there’s a 48-megapixel primary sensor which captures oversampled 12-megapixel photos by default. It also has an f/1.8 aperture. Next up is a 13-megapixel 2x optical zoom camera; an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera which is also used for super-macro shots; and finally, a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

You can record videos at up to 4K resolution without any stabilization. Image quality was decent and the colours weren’t exaggerated, which is good. Stabilization does work well at 1080p. You can shoot 1080p videos with the wide-angle camera too, but without stabilization. At this resolution, you can choose either 25/30 or 60fps. However, video quality was very poor in low light.

Panorama, Time-lapse, Live photo, Pro, Doc, Jovi, and AR stickers are available. AR stickers to be really fun. There are also some interesting features to play around within the camera settings, such as AR Portrait framing, which guides you into positioning the camera correctly for a portrait shot.
