The Chinese handset maker, Vivo has been around now for a while and boasts of an impressive budget lineup in the country. It has been expanding its Y series of devices in India, which is directed towards Youth of the country and consists of value for money handsets. Now Vivo has come out with a new handset called Y55L, which is also a budget device but falls flat on its face when it comes to the competition. Here is a brief overview of the handset for you to decide whether or not you should go for the device.
Smart Screen Flash: There is 5 mp camera on the front panel of this handset, which is a good one for selfies. However, in the low light conditions, even the best of selfie cameras struggle. Vivo was smart enough to recognise this and has integrated a Smart Screen Flash technology in the handset, which turns on automatically in low light and makes for good selfies.
Eye Protection mode: This is another coming of age feature, which is a must have for anyone who prefer to read or watch movies on their handsets. The eye protection mode is designed to filter the blue light emanated by the display and keep your eyes safe during those binge watching or reading session.
Triple Card slots: One of the grievance that every new smartphone user has is regarding the Hybrid slot. Vivo has eliminated the hybrid slot and introduced triple card slots in the Y55L, which means you can use both dual SIM and microSD in this handset.
No fingerprint scanner: To be a device priced around INR 11,000 and miss out on the most important feature has to be a crime. However, for some reason the fingerprint scanner has been left out by the brand in this device, which is available in almost every device that comes for this price.
