Vivo has announced another smartphone known as Vivo Y50 alongside the Vivo Y19. The smartphone arrived in April 2020. Notably, it came with a good battery that can last, while the camera features are lower than what was expected. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 is worthy of praise as it propels the device to the mid-range level.
Vivo Y50 Design
It is a beautiful phone that leaves nothing to be desired on the surface. Vivo Y50 is made of materials such as glass and premium plastic. The colors of the phone are starry black and iris blue.
Vivo Y50 Display
The Vivo Y50 is made of an IPS LCD touchscreen capacitive display of 16 million colors. Furthermore, the display size is 6.53 inches. The resolution is 1080 2400 pixels. But the aspect ratio 20:9, while the pixel density is 403 ppi.
Vivo Y50 Processor
The chipset found inside the Y50 is Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, as mentioned above. It is an SM6125 edition. However, the process technology is 11 nm, which suggests good speed and better multi-tasking capacities. Further, the CPU is 2.0 GHz, while the GPU is Qualcomm Adreno 610.
The storage features of Vivo Y50 are okay, even laudable. There is 8 GB of RAM, which can’t be increased and also 128 GB of ROM that can be increased. There is the provision of a microSD card in a dedicated slot to expand that storage externally.
Vivo Y50 receives accolades as it comes with a good Li-Po 5000 mAh battery. This battery can’t handle wireless charging, but it can handle fast charging of 15W. So, it is possible to charge the phone full in about two hours from zero percent. Also, take advantage of the power-saving support available. It keeps the battery safe from overuse.
Speaker & Call Quality
Two things glaring here is that the smartphone arrived with both loudspeaker and a 3.5mm jack. There is also a microphone for amplifying the voice. As such, it is possible to make and receive calls with good volume provided the smartphone is well adjusted at the sound. Yes, the user can play media, have loud ringtones or notifications as much as desired as the sounds are of good quality.
Software Features & Sensors
This Vivo Y50 runs on Android v10.0 with Funtouch 10.0 skin or user interface. The sensors inside the device includes fingerprint, which is rear-mounted, accelerometer, proximity, compass, light, etc.
Camera, Video, & Image Quality
Of course, there are four cameras at the rear of Vivo Y50. They are the Main 13 MP wide-angled, 8 MP f/2.2 ultrawide, 2 MP macro f/2.4, and 2 MP f/2,4 aperture. These are blessed with features such as LED flash, HDR, panorama, digital zoom, continuous shooting, and more. At the front, there is a selfie camera. However, the cameras in Vivo Y50 are not high-quality lenses and therefore produce mediocre images or videos.
Vivo Y50 Price
The Vivo Y50 is selling for $249. In Europe, it sells for about 230 EUR, and in Nigeria, it sells for about 95,733 Naira. Prices may change without notice.
Except for the camera department, the processor features could be overlooked and this device would have been all round great smartphone. It seems that that the company concentrated the powers of the phone on the battery. Goof thing is that the smartphone features waterdrop notch as the predecessors did.
