Vivo has just presented a new smartphone within its most economical range, focused on those who want to spend as little as possible, but at the same time have the guarantees of a brand with a great reputation like this one. The protagonist on this occasion is the vivo Y15c , a model that does not stand out for anything but that can be an ideal option if you are looking for a well-balanced mobile in terms of quality – price.
Technical characteristics of the vivo Y15c
This vivo Y15c has a 6.51-inch screen , with HD+ resolution and LCD technology. A modest panel that stands out especially for its dimensions, but those who prefer quantity over quality. Mediatek appears in its bowels with its Helio P35 , a SoC that is already around five years old but is still a safe bet for many manufacturers. It is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM and storage that ranges between 32 GB and 64 GB .
Its photographic section does not impress, but it saves the furniture with a double rear camera of 13 MP + 2 MP and an 8 MP front camera . As expected considering the cut in specifications, it does not have 5G and we have to settle for the still solvent 4G , in addition to WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and a fingerprint reader on the side . Unjustifiable is the fact that, at this point, we find a Micro USB charging port, an already quite obsolete standard.
We finish the review of the characteristics of this Vivo Y15c talking about its battery, which saves the furniture with its 5,000 mAh , and its new operating system, with Android 12 by flag, accompanied by the Funtouch OS 12 customization layer .
Availability and price
If you are looking for a cheap and simple smartphone, this Vivo Y15c may be what you need. For now, it has been announced in India , one of the emerging markets where the most modest mobile phones tend to land. Its official price has not yet been announced, but we do not expect it to exceed 100 euros.
