If your answer is a resounding "Yes!" to all of those questions, then here's a fresh release from Chinese tech giant Vivo Mobile that you might want to check out.

On the exterior, there are two things that are particularly of note about this handset.

First, the back panel has a beautiful Spectrum Ripple pattern underneath the high-gloss finish  that gleams and shimmers depending on how light hits it. This eye-catching design element is currently unique to this particular model.

Second, Vivo V15 Pro features a downright stunning 6.39-inch FullHD+ SuperAMOLED Ultra FullView display that takes up almost the entire face of the design as it has almost no bezels and definitely no notch, a display element that many consumers hate with a passion.

Vivo Mobile was able to eliminate the need for a notch on this phone's screen by putting the super high-resolution 32 MegaPixel f/2.0 AI-Beauty-powered front-facing camera in a motorized elevating module located at the top panel.

Whenever you launch the camera application and switch to the front cam to snap a selfie, the motor automatically kicks in to raise this innovative mechanism.

The front shooter is complemented by a powerhouse Triple Rear Camera set-up which had been crafted to make the Vivo V15 Pro one of the most versatile cameraphones in its category.

This module is made up of these following cameras:

1. 12 MegaPixel f/1.8 Primary Cam with Phase Detection AutoFocus
2. 8 MegaPixel f/2.2 Secondary Cam with 13mm Ultra-Wide Lens
3. 5 MegaPixel f/2.4 Depth Sensor.

Having a wide aperture plus enhanced AI capabilities, the primary cam is capable of delivering clear and crisp images in various lighting conditions - even in low light - when shooting various kinds of subjects.

In fact, Vivo's AI imaging software is now made smarter than ever, able to figure out more subjects - be it people, food, greenery, or architecture - in front of the lens than before to automatically adjust colors, highlights as well as shadows and deliver the best shots possible.

With its 13mm wide-angle lens, the secondary camera is perfect for taking landscape photos or snapping large group shots. Using this cam, you won't have to take a few steps back just to capture more of what's in front of you.

Finally, the depth sensor enables Portrait Mode, which adds beautiful Bokeh or blurred background effect on photos of people or even food.

Made for demanding power users, Vivo V15 Pro runs its FunTouch OS 9 customized Android 9.0 Pie operating system with a 11nm Octa Core Qualcomm SDM675 Snapdragon 675 AIE processor that's both powerful and energy efficient. This chipset incorporates an Adreno 612 GPU that definitely ensures buttery smooth gaming experience when running the most popular titles that you can download from Google Play Store, including Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

Alongside the incredible 8GB of RAM and sizable 128 GB of expandable storage, Snapdragon 675 makes Vivo V15 Pro one of the most powerful 2019 Android smartphones in the midrange echelon.

For privary and security, Vivo V15 Pro features Facial Recognition that's integrated in the front cam, which automatically elevates when you press the power button from screen off.

On top of that, this smartphone has an In-Display Fingerprint Scanner - underneath the scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 5 panel - that's been made a lot faster and more accurate than that one on Vivo V11. This sensor is particularly useful when the handset is placed on the table and you need to unlock it; No need to pick it up.
