Vivo Y20s review: the vivo Y20s is the latest mid-range smartphone from vivo. Should you buy or rather skip it for other brands mid-range smartphone?
The Vivo Y20s with 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM is priced at N85,900 ($220). And for such an outrageous price, here are the specs it offers:
- 6.5′ LCD touchscreen
- 720 x 1600 resolution
- 6 GB RAM
- 128 GB ROM
- Snapdragon 460
- 13MP tri-lens rear cameras
- 8MP selfie
- 5000mAh battery
Judging by the specs, the smartphone is hardly attractive. But the cameras are good and can easily recognize natural colors without over exposure. Below is a selfie camera sample:
The rear cameras are hardly impressive though. And that’s because it has 13MP primary lens and 2MP lens each for portrait and macro images.
So the main weakness of the vivo Y20s starts from the rear cameras. For example, the Infinix Note 8i and Infinix Note 7 are cheaper and they will give you a far better value.
Another weakness of the vivo Y20s is the performance. The chipset that powers the smartphone is the Snapdragon 460. And when compared with, it is no where near the Infinix Note 8 series MediaTek Helio G80 chip.
The Snapdragon 460 sometimes struggles to perform average tasks and certainly not the best for an optimized intensive average gaming.
To keep the smartphone secured, the fingerprint scanner is placed on the right hand side of the device. Just right below the volume buttons.
And it’s good to take note that the main difference between the Vivo Y20s and Vivo Y20, is the size in RAM and ROM. The Y20 comes with 4GB RAM unlike the Y20s with 6GB RAM.
Overall, I would say the Vivo Y20s is overly priced. I’d rather recommend you to buy the Infinix Note 8 series which are better and cheaper than the Y20s.
