Vivo Y12G: Design

The Vivo Y12G has been launched as the new budget smartphone in India with standard 4G network support. The entry-level device brings a similar design pattern and hardware as its siblings, i.e,  the standard Vivo Y12 and the Vivo Y12a. The back panel is gradient and has an all-plastic built. There is a vertical camera module on the upper left which packs a dual-camera setup and an LED flash. The device accommodates a large 6.51-inch display upfront which supports standard 720 x 1600 pixels HD+ resolution and has an aspect ratio of 20:9. The panel will support 720p streaming at platforms such as YouTube and others. The handset features a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera.


Vivo Y12G: Hardware Performance

The Vivo Y12G has been launched with the Snapdragon 439 processor. This is an octa-core processor by Qualcomm for entry-level smartphones. The processor has Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB RAM support. This RAM capacity and the low-end Qualcomm chipset makes the device suitable for general tasks including media playback and web surfing. The gaming experience will be decent if not great. The device comes with 32GB and 64GB of storage. However, there is an additional 256GB storage support via an external microSD card.


Vivo Y12G: Price To Specs Ratio

The Vivo Y12G carries a price tag of Rs. 10,990 in India. The device is available in a single 3GB RAM and 32GB storage configuration. The color options available are Phantom Black and Glacier Blue. The price tag is decent if we look at the overall spec sheet. However, slightly lower pricing would have been a better strategy in this already crowded Rs. 10,000 segment.


Vivo Y12G: Camera Performance

The Vivo Y12G employs a dual-camera setup at the rear for primary imaging. The device features a 13MP main camera which is paired up with a 2MP additional sensor for depth mapping. The camera setup will offer good performance with daylight shots where the primary 13MP camera will capture the details. The additional sensor will allow adding depth effects to an image. The selfie camera is an 8MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. This setup is decent for social media uploads.


Vivo Y12G: Important/ Highlight Features

The Vivo Y12G runs on Android 10 OS which is topped with FunTouch OS 11 interface. The handset has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It has standard 4G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth network connectivity. There is a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a dated microUSB port for charging and data transfers. The unit is backed by a big 5,000 mAh battery that supports 10W charging.


Vivo Y12G: Verdict

The Vivo Y12G is an addition to the already crowded budget segment. This device is decent but dated with regards to certain features. The Android version and USB port are amongst the older features without which this would have made for a good offering. There are several other devices that offer the updated Android 11 version and a USB Type C port which you can consider.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
