Vivo Y85

Sports a metal overall unibody, just like other Vivo high-level devices released earlier. The smartphone is stunning, we already know what the company is capable of doing. The iPhone X-like dual camera adds to the beauty of the rear, while the LED flash sits underneath.

So the fingerprint scanner on the Vivo Y85 is still at the back for easy access. Turning over to the sides, it measures 7.89 mm in thickness, a little bit bigger than the rest. Nonetheless, it weighs just 150g and available in Champagne and Black colors only. This might be a disappointment to flashy color lovers.

This is like the fourth smartphone from Vivo with this kind of screen, seems they are more excited about the trend than other OEM. Nonetheless, i still love how they keep the top-notch and bottom bezel at its minimum, unlike others. As small as the top-notch is, it still houses the selfie camera speaker grille and ambient light sensors.
