You can pick the Y11 up for around Rs.23,000 -26,000 island-wide. Considering its price and features, we think it is worth it.
It was released in 2019, making it rather new. Although a budget phone, it looks and feels rich. To begin with, it was made from quality plastic. The material is shiny, looking like glass from across the room.
The Y11 is big too. Its screen stretches 6.35 inches across. Of course, it comes with a bit of weight. The more weight a phone has, the more premium it would feel. It is 190.5 grams.
It’s not thin. The following are its dimensions, 159.4 mm x 76.8 mm x 8.9 mm. As it’s so heavy, the width makes it brick-like.
There is a MicroSD slot on it. The ability to expand its storage is appreciated, as the Y11 comes with decent ROM already. Moreover, a 3.5 mm headphone jack is present too.
How clumsy are you? There is strengthened glass on its display. Vivo hasn’t made it public knowledge if it’s Gorilla Glass or not, however.
The panel on its front is IPS LCD. If you’ve read our reviews before, you’d know that it doesn’t produce the best colours. As its display is so big, immersing in content would easy, though. This is especially true as there’s barely any bezel action going on. Its screen-to-body ratio is 81.4%.
We don’t like its pixel resolution. The Y11 has a large screen, so its 720 x 1544 pixel front makes blurriness an issue.
Out of the box, it runs Android 9. You, unfortunately, won’t be able to upgrade it to Android 10 or 11. The OS would be available through Funtouch 9.1. It’s quite customizable.
Inside the phone would be the Snapdragon 439 processor. It’s very basic, don’t throw extensive tasks its way. Thankfully, the RAM it has doesn’t make moving through its systems harder. There are 3 gigs, so apps won’t force close.
ROM-wise, 32 GB are available. If you remember, expanding its storage would be possible.
As the device isn’t thin, it’s no surprise that it has a large battery. Inside of it is a 5000 mAh unit. No, it’s non-removable. Know that the phone fully drains in over a day.
To charge it, you’ll be plugging a 10W regular charger into its micro USB port. Expect it to go from 0-100% in over 2 hours. It charges slowly due to the presence of the micro USB port. It’s considered dated these days.
Vivo isn’t a brand that is known for its cameras. The Y11 is a budget unit, which is why it isn’t shocking that a mediocre set-up was placed. There is a 13 MP primary lens along with a secondary 2 MP depth one. Shots would be grainy and not colour accurate. They would especially be bad in low-light.
Speaking of taking pictures in dim-settings, a bright LED flash is on it. An LED sensor is sadly not on its front camera. You’ll only be met by an 8 MP shooter. As you can imagine, the shots won’t leave you Instagram-ready.
