Vivo Y55s smartphone: Decent performance but overpriced

Published

Vivo-Y55s

(Tech Review)

New Delhi, March 20 

China-based Vivo, whose strength lies in a strong offline presence in India, has so far delivered devices that are known for superior design and quality.

Priced at Rs 12,490, Vivo’s new offering Y55s is an upgraded version of Y55L that was launched last year.

The device packs split-screen feature for multitasking and an eye-protection mode that allows for comfortable screen brightness by reducing blue light.

Here is what works for the device.

Sporting unibody design with 2.5D curved-edge screen, Y55s looks similar to other Vivo smartphones.

The overall dimensions of the device are neat and it does not slip while holding. The rear camera placement is also good and does not protrude, making it safe from unwanted scratches.

The 5.2-inch HD display choice appears adequate for the price. The colours rendered on the screen are nice but not very sharp. Lenovo K6 Power in the same segment offers more vibrant colours, brightness levels and contrast ratio than Y55s for an enhanced movie or videos watching experience.

The ‘Eye Protection’ feature reduces strain by restricting blue light emissions, thereby preserving eye health.

The octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM ran smoothly during light to moderate multitasking. However, serious gamers beware as the device slows down.

The “Funtouch OS 3.0” based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow is bright, colourful and easy to navigate.

The camera performances — both rear and front — are good enough for regular use but do not deliver exceptional photos.

The 13MP rear camera with LED Flash is pretty good and daylight, macro shots came out clean with enough colour in them.

If you are a selfie lover or a photo enthusiast, Y55s is not the one for you.

The 2,730mAh battery, though small, manages to run for almost a day on light usage.

What does not work?

The 720p display is not the best in this price range. Smartphones like Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus and K6 Power pack full-HD display.

The display brightness of Y55s is also not suitable for outdoors viewing during day time.

Vivo Y55s does not have fingerprint sensor which has become a common feature in smartphones.

Conclusion: Vivo Y55s packs decent specifications and has enough power for regular use, but, unfortunately, there are devices in the same price segment that are armed with better specifications. Still, go for it if you have used Y55L before.

The Samajwadi Party leader, Naresh Agarwal on Monday joined BJP in the presence of Railway Minister, Piyush Goyal and BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.

While joining BJP, Naresh Agarwal who is currently the Rajya Sabha member of Samajwadi Party said, “I am joining the BJP as I think that until you are in National Party, you cannot do anything for the society. I am also impressed by PM Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and UP CM Yogi. I still respect Mulayam Singh Yadav and Ram Gopal Yadav, but the current scenario in SP where it is doing a coalition with Congress and sometimes BSP is very sad.”

The leader joined BJP after the Samajwadi party nominated actor and politician Jaya Bachchan for the upcoming Rajya Sabha election in April. The party had to choose between Naresh Agarwal and Jaya Bachchan as they don’t have enough legislators in the assembly to support their candidate.

Talking about Samajwadi Party’s Rajya Sabha candidate, Jaya Bachchan he said, “My comparison was drawn with those working in films… I was rejected for those who dance in films, work in films. I found it not proper. Nobody found it proper.”

Agarwal became tv channels and newspaper’s headline for making controversial statements. In July 2017, he courted controversy in Rajya Sabha by associating Hindu Gods with alcohol, while speaking on the issue of mob violence related with cow protection. However, after his statement, he was made to apologise by BJP.
