Design and performance
The Vivo series features is consistent design, which can be seen in its latest smartphone, including the new vivo y15. It is an all-plastic phone that comes with a glossy finish on the back.
The best smartphone design has always been the main focus of Vivo, as can be seen in the company’s new offerings. Although the shiny plastic body raises concerns about the phone’s durability, consumers today are more interested in the “if so” scenario.
vivo y15 is a fully sized device, neither too big nor too small, but the phone’s thickness (8.9mm) makes it difficult to use with one hand.
You can find the power button and volume rocker on the right side of the phone, while the SIM slot is on the left. Underneath the device is a microUSB charging port, headphone jack, and speaker grille.

vivo y15 is a fingerprint magnet and suffers from scratches. Therefore, we recommend using the back cover provided by the company, which is quite strong and can protect the phone in the event of an accidental fall.
vivo y15 has a 6.35-inch IPS LCD, whose screen resolution is 720 x 1544 pixels. Almost all smartphones including Vivo Y series come with 720p screen resolution, which is quite disappointing, especially when there are many like Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, Vivo V9, Techno Camon CX, Xiaomi MAA1. Budget phones are offering 1080 x 1920 pixels. Screen resolution for their users.

Display and battery
The MediaTek Helio P22, which powers vivo y15, is undoubtedly not a new chip set and is from 2018. Because it is designed for inexpensive mid-range phones, it can support features that are traditionally found in high-end models such as artificial intelligence and cameras. to head.
The consortium of 4 GB RAM and Helio P22 chipset should theoretically provide a smooth smartphone experience. We have seen the same mix in the very cheap Techno Camon i4, which has passed our performance tests with flying colors. Let’s see if vivo y15 will do the same.
During mild to moderate use, the phone showed no signs of delay or delay and worked non-stop throughout the day. We can easily switch between calling, texting, watching a movie, using social media, and surfing the web.
Its performance also declined when we simultaneously opened various heavy mobile apps and expanded the smartphone to its limits, switching between apps, searching for anything on the web such as vivo y15 completing tasks. It took about 3-4 seconds.
When playing heavy games like Asphalt 9, PUBG, Real Racing 3, and Dead Trigger, we can also see a clear reduction in frames and sometimes even longer breaks due to the normally heavier game graphics. On the other hand, the phone did not heat up during our testing phase.
vivo y15 Back comes with triple camera setup which includes 13MP, f / 2.2, PDAF primary camera, 8MP, f / 2.2, 16mm ultra wide lens and 2MP, f / 2. In 2.4, depth sensors are included.
Unlike Huawei smartphones, you don’t have to dig deep into the “more” option to access features like HDR, Slovo, Panorama, etc. The simplicity of the camera interface is a plus for Android scans of the WAV. This is the issue. Apart from this, the sliding option in Pro mode also provides convenience to the users.
Moving as a result of the camera, the smartphone takes great shots in auto shots with excellent color performance in daylight. We find almost natural color in the image and can clearly see the details of the subject.
vivo y15 is a beautiful smartphone made to stand out due to its design. Even with a 720p display, you can still enjoy using multimedia on a large screen.
What we get for this handset is the long battery life, which will last more than a day for the medium user and the Funtouch 9 user interface, which has the unique taste of the company aside from the previous version of the software. Designed to deliver too much. Inspired by iOS.
