vivo Y15 (2019)Full Specification, review and quick details.

Vivo y15 was launched in May 2019 at a moderate price rate of around $170. In general, it comes in two colours; Aqua Blue and Burgundy Red. The smartphone is the elder brother of the upcoming smartphone Vivo y12. The smartphone measures the dimension of 159.4 x 76.8 x 8.9 mm and weighs nearly 190.5 g.

Display

The device boasts 6.35 inches of IPS LCD display coming at a resolution of 720 x 1544 pixels and ~268 PPI density, the pixel density is quite decent for this price range, though you may get better options.

Performance

Under the hood, the phablet is equipped with a MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) chipset, an octa-core processor, which clocks at the rate of 2.0 GHz. It has PowerVR GE8320 graphics to hold a load of heavy gaming, and it returns max out the performance. It runs on an Android 9.0 (Pie) uses fun touch 9 as an user-interface.

Camera

When it comes to the camera, the smartphone couples with a 13+8+2 Mega-pixels rear camera and 16 MP front shooter camera for little improved selfies. Unfortunately, it doesn’t aid 4k resolution of video quality but does home the limited 64 GB of internal memory along with the dedicated 256 GB microSD.

Battery

The device gets its fuel-filled by an awe-inspiring 5000 mAh lithium polymer battery. The battery can keep the phone lit all day on a single charge.

Verdict

Vivo y15 is not a smartphone for the display fans, however, a triple camera with a decent selfie cam, the phone seems worth buying for. Its massive battery strength is something that users might love to take a plunge for. Not many times, the smartphone industry bring with such smartphone as Vivo y15. We are impressed with the above factors, but the hardware it is using is pretty mediocre, and one might not enjoy high-end games or watch full HQ videos here. Unsurprisingly, The specs thoroughly justify the price.
