UPDATED: SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,500 (2019)

Vivo V15

Vivo has brought over a number of features from the costlier V15 Pro over to the midrange V15, which gives this smartphone the edge over some of its competitors in the market today. This includes a 48MP 12MP primary camera sensor within a triple-camera setup, along with a 32MP front-facing camera that pops up when you take selfies or use face unlock.

The 4,000mAh battery under the hood only charges via microUSB, but Vivo provides an 18W fast charger out of the box. As for its processor, the V15 is powered by the midrange MediaTek Helio P70; you also get a large HD+ IPS display that’s totally unobscured thanks to the popup selfie camera.

It’s certainly one of the more eye-catching front-facing cameras at this price point, based on specs, and the V15 might be the phone for you if selfie photography is your primary concern. It also comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage—plus points for the large 128GB model that’s still priced within this guide’s parameters. If you’d like something that stands out a little more, there’s a limited edition Blossom Pink V15 that’s also available from Vivo.
