Vivo Y66 smartphone review


With the quantity of telephones flooding the market these most recent couple of years, it's very difficult to monitor what's being sold and significantly harder for a producer to make a gadget that emerges.


The Vivo Y66 is the ideal case of such a gadget. It offers for Rs 14,999, has swamp standard equipment and is accessible in gold. You can stroll into any retail location in the nation or peruse on the web and discover a gadget like this one without attempting.

So what, in the event that anything, sets the Y66 separated from the opposition at this value point?

Construct and outline: 6/10

At first look, the Vivo Y66 looks simply like some other China-influenced cell phone in the cost to go.

The gadget looks OK, however feels modest.

Producers nowadays want to slap nearly 2.5D glass on the front of their gadgets. 2.5D recommends that the edges of the show unit are bended down to consistently progress into the show.

While the Y66 seems as though it does this, these looks can be beguiling. The show is somewhat littler in region than the front of the gadget and is encompassed by a thin portion of plastic. Since the front of our gadget is white, the plastic is additionally white, which is the reason you don't see a visual error.

A thin metal casing encompasses the gadget also.

When you hold the gadget, you can obviously feel the progression at the edges, where the screen meets the edge, and this doesn't feel so extraordinary.

However, on the other hand, the gadget is Rs 14,999, so I can't grumble excessively.

The back of the gadget is altogether plastic, however there are discrete plastic additions serving as reception apparatus groups. To take a gander at it, you'd imagine that the gadget had a metal back. The complete highlights this impression.

You do get a little camera knock at the back, yet it's small to the point that you won't see the knock. A solitary LED streak goes with the camera.

The base highlights a solitary speaker barbecue, a miniaturized scale USB 2.0 port and the earphone jack.

Vivo Y66 3

The left side houses the double SIM plate while the correct houses the volume rocker and power catch. The catches feel clicky and strong, which is decent.

Capacitive catches on the front bezel are what you get for route, however they're not illuminated, which is baffling.

Highlights: 6.5/10

The equipment is nothing to comfortable. It brought to you a MediaTek chipset processor, which is a section level stage, and you get 3 GB of random access memory. The inner memory capacity is wow as it comes with 32 GB. Also you have the choice of expanding it up to 256 GB by means of an external microSD card.

Vivo Y66 1

Curiously, a number of 13-megapixel camera makes up the back unit yet 16-megapixel is found at the front of the device. I assume selfies are more imperative than photos nowadays, so this isn't an astonishment.

The battery is a 3,000 mAh unit and the gadget weighs around 155 g.

The phone screen size is a 5.5-inch high definition display (1280x720) liquid-crystal display unit.

Hence, there's nothing in the device that makes it looks strange, except the way the company programmed the phone back and front cameras, yet this is turning into a pattern in any case.


The 5.5-inch show that featured on this telephone isn't splendid yet is sufficiently sharp that you won't gripe about clearness. In splendid daylight, the show is scarcely neat, even at most extreme brilliance.

Vivo Y66 7

Indeed, even in standard utilize, the telephone's firmware was exceptionally hesitant to push the splendor too high. The show looked perpetually dull and I needed to keep turning the brilliance up when watching recordings or endeavoring to peruse something for a broadened timeframe.

Most extreme brilliance isn't significantly brighter than the default setting, yet in any event it influences the show to look somewhat more dynamic.

Generally speaking, I'd call the show quieted, however useful.

Programming: 6.5/10

The product is, well, intriguing, most definitely. The telephone runs a skin called Funtouch OS 3.0 over Android 6.0, with the goal that implies there's no Nougat here and no Google Assistant.

Vivo Y66 UI

The fascinating piece here is that the OS is an explicit counterfeit of iOS. A considerable lot of the symbols and textual styles are unmistakably iOS-roused, similar to the control board that you pull up from beneath and the format of the control board. The default music application is brazenly called "I Music" and its UI, once more, will be painfully well-known to somebody who utilizes iOS frequently.

Saying this doesn't imply that that the product is terrible. It's said that impersonation is the sincerest type of adulation, and regardless of ripping off Apple, the OS really figures out how to merge together the best bits from iOS and Android rather well.

Vivo Y66 UI 2

The upgraded Settings menu is additionally pleasant in light of the fact that the basics are all the more unmistakably set, prompting less mess.

There are other decent highlights also. The twofold tap-to-wake motion is a fitting substitute for the absence of a unique mark sensor. There's likewise a symbol on the home screen that you can tap to kill the gadget. You can likewise twofold tap the screen to turn it off.

Different touches, similar to the alternative to show arrange utilization details in the status bar, S-Capture for screen captures, signal based easy routes, and so on., are decent.

There are various alternatives for modifying the UI and signals and a significant number of these highlights can really be helpful. There's an extraordinary arrangement to mess around with, in the event that you need to, however I simply wish I had Nougat to work with.

Execution: 6/10

General execution was languid. The UI works sensibly well, yet take a stab at anything overwhelming, such as perusing a website page, opening various applications, and so forth., and you'll experience stammering.

Vivo Y66 Perf 1

The same faltering once in a while flew up in a few amusements too.

On the off chance that you regard the gadget as only a telephone i.e. you influence calls and visit with companions and perhaps to take some photographs, it's splendidly fine.

For substantial perusing and playing diversions, the execution is lacking.

Vivo Y66 Perf 2

Truth be told, the Redmi Note 4 with its Snapdragon 625 chip is substantially more effective, less expensive, and gives an obviously better ordeal.

The single speaker at the base isn't noisy and it's hard to hear anything in something besides a peaceful room.

I confronted a few issues with flag quality also. The flag was seldom predictable. I go via prepare and in fact, flag quality isn't great over my drive. Be that as it may, the Vivo Y66 would experience association dead spots where no other telephone would. This was confounding and baffling as I stream music over the length of my drive.

Camera: 7.5/10

Vivo Y66

The telephone's camera quality isn't awful, really. I had no issues as far as speed of catch or centering, and the picture quality was very conventional in great light.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) pictures turned out especially well, with the camera sufficiently catching point of interest in the features and shadows to make it worth leaving on.

The 16 MP forward looking camera was additionally great, catching great hues and an OK measure of detail in not too bad lighting.

Low light execution wasn't excessively incredible, yet I didn't anticipate that it will be. Scarcely any cell phones are prepared to do great low-light shots, even the iPhone battles in this division.

You get various highlights, including UltraHD mode, moderate movement, and so on., and they all work sensibly well. Pictures shot in UltraHD mode, for instance, are certainly clearer than consistent pictures.

Battery: 6.5/10

Vivo Y66 Battery 1

Our institutionalized battery test gave the gadget a rating of 8 hours and 43 minutes. This is entirely normal execution as we've seen various telephones effectively outperform the 9.5 hour or 10 hour check.

Be that as it may, genuine utilize paints an alternate picture. The gadget effortlessly got me through a full work day and had around 15 percent charge left the following morning too. My work day comprises of two or three hours of music and video amid my drive, two or three hours of web perusing and exchanging between different applications, many messages, a large number of more messages and a couple of calls.

Given that few telephones last me till I return home, not to mention the following morning, implied that Vivo has accomplished something with the product that empowers this battery life.

The drawback to this is the charging speed. The packaged charger takes perpetually to energize the Vivo Y66. I gauged it at right around three hours to a full charge, which is moderate for a 3,000 mAh gadget.

Decision and cost in India

Noting my first inquiry, no, the Vivo Y66 does nothing to separate itself from the opposition.

At this value extend, the Redmi Note 4 is less expensive, made of metal, and considerably quicker. The somewhat more costly Moto G5 is better constructed and quicker too. At that point there's likewise the battery life ruler, the Asus Zenfone 3S Max.

All things considered, the Y66 isn't a loathsome choice at this cost, however it is a sub-par one. This is the sort of telephone you purchase when you don't recognize what you're searching for, when you simply stroll into a store and request to be indicated telephones under Rs 15,000.

It has an OK camera and genuinely not too bad battery life, yet the body doesn't feel exceptionally awesome and the screen isn't brilliant. Execution is normal.

On the off chance that you can get your hands on it, little can beat a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. Spend somewhat more, and you'll get the Moto G5.
