Vivo Y3s: Design

Amongst multiple Vivo budget phones announced this year is the Vivo Y3s. The smartphone wears a gradient skin at the back which reflects a sunrise-like pattern when light rays fall on the back surface. The device packs a vertical camera module at the upper left corner which is followed by the Vivo label at the bottom. The Y3s has a tall frame upfront which is complemented by slim borders on the sides (the chin is comparatively thick). The display packed is an IPD LCD panel that measures 6.51-inches which supports 720 x 1600 screen resolution and a standard 60Hz refresh rate.  The panel features a waterdrop notch that packs the selfie snapper.


Vivo Y3s: Hardware Performance

The Vivo Y3s operates using the MediaTek MT6765 processor. This octa-core processor is primarily marketed as the Helio P35 SoC. The chipset is accompanied by PowerVR GE8320 GPU and 2GB RAM. Expect a lag-free performance with daily tasks such as web surfing and calling. You will also get decent feedback with media playback; specifically video playback on-the-go. High-end gaming wouldn’t be a great experience here. The Y3s comes with 32GB built-in memory which can be further expanded using a microSD card.


Vivo Y3s: Price To Specs Ratio

The Vivo Y3s can be purchased in a single 2GB RAM+ 32GB storage configuration. The price of this model is Rs. 9,990 in the Indian market. It can be purchased in Mint Green, Pearl White, and Starry Blue color options via both online and offline retail markets. You can get numerous other devices in this segment; specifically a non-Android Go Edition phone. A lower price tag would have made it more competitive.


Vivo Y3s: Camera Performance

The Vivo Y3s has one of the most basic camera hardware you can find on a modern-day Android phone. The device has been launched with a single rear and a front camera. The back panel has a 13MP main camera with an f/2.2 aperture. This sensor will offer fair performance feedback (general photography). The handset uses a 5MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture for selfies and video chats.


Vivo Y3s: Important/ Highlight Features

Other Vivo Y3s important aspects include a fingerprint scanner mounted at the back panel and standard connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB OTG, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microUSB port. The smartphone ships with Android 11 (Go Edition). Powering the Vivo Y3s is a 5,000 mAh battery which is sufficient to deliver close to a day of backup on a single charge.


Vivo Y3s: Verdict

The Vivo Y3s is suitable for you if only you need a basic phone that is required as a daily driver. It is costly if you compare the pricing with other devices from Chinese brands that offer a standard Android version, a dual/ triple rear camera setup, and in some cases 90Hz HD+ display.

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.
