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.

Trump: We’re playing a “very hard game of poker” with North Korea

Donald Trump

President Trump tells Reuters that Russia is “not helping us at all with North Korea,” and that the Russian actions are “denting” progress China is making. He also said North Korea is getting “closer every day” to getting a missile that can hit the U.S.

Putin “can do a lot,” Trump said, “but unfortunately we don’t have much of a relationship with Russia, and in some cases it’s probable that what China takes back, Russia gives. So the net result is not as good as it could be.”

Context: Thursday in Vancouver a group of nations met to discuss nuclear security and North Korea, and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called out both Russia and China for helping North Korea.

On future talks with North Korea: Trump said he’s “not sure that sitting down [with the North Koreans] will solve the problem.”

Once the most growing sector, Telecom is on the edge as the upcoming six to nine months will be very challenging for it. Almost 50,000 more jobs are assumed to fade away from this sector. Since the start of 2017, the sector has witnessed a loss of 40,000 jobs and the further assumption of another 80,000 jobs may hit the sector very hard.

According to a report by CIEL, human resource services, the rapidly increasing competition between companies has declined their profit margin. The profit margin is one of the main reason behind the emergence of more jobs, although there is always a sense of uncertainty in the sector. The report by the company is based on a survey conducted by 65 technology firms and 100 employees.

“The attrition rate is like to remain high at least for the next two-three quarters and the sector is likely to reduce around 80,000-90,000 people,” the Bengaluru-based company’s chief executive Aditya Narayan Mishra told PTI.

“The telecom industry has lost its lustre and this negative sentiment is failing to attract any talent into the sector. The vacant seats continue to remain vacant with no fresh applications,” Mishra added.
