So far, we have witnessed that when it comes to specifications in budget segment, Chinese brand are often the best ones. Xiaomi is the prominent example of the same, followed by brands like Coolpad and LeEco. However, there is one particular brand from China that has been trying to gain foothold in Indian handset market for a while now and has settled on manufacturing camera centric handsets. However, the handset manufacturer has been trying to get into the budget segment with Y series and has been missing the mark. The Y53 is the latest offering from the handset maker in this series and this too seem to have missed the mark. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who are looking for a budget handset.
Eye Protection Mode: One of the biggest concern that anyone who uses smartphone has is that the prolonged use of the handset is certain to ruin their eyesight for good. However, Vivo has equipped this device with an Eye protection mode, which is designed to protect your eyesight from getting ruined. Basically what it does is that it applies a warmer filter over the display and thus filtering out the bluelight, which are harmful for your eyes.
Night Mode camera: This handset boasts of an 8 Megapixels snapper on the rear panel, which sounds pretty ordinary and even a short-sell for handset priced above INR 10,000. However, the brand has equipped the camera of this handset with numerous features, which make it pretty worthwhile. One of these features is the night mode camera, which means that the handset is capable of taking pictures at low light and detect movement in at night as well.
Non hybrid dual SIM: These days, almost all new launches are coming with Hybrid SIM, which go well with purist, who like to use Dual SIM as well as expandable storage. However, Vivo Y53 boasts of conventional slots, which means it has dual SIM as well as a dedicated microSD card slot.
No fingerprint scanner: Today we are in a phase where all budget smartphones are being equipped with fingerprint scanner by the brand. However, this handset despite being one of the more expensive one seems to be missing out on the most basic feature in a smartphone at the moment.
