How much does the Vivo device cost? You can pick it up for around Rs.33,500 island-wide. Considering its price and features, we think it’s worth it.
It was released in mid of 2020, so it’s new. The sign of a modern handset would be its dimensions. Manufacturers are all about big mobiles these days. Its screen stretches 6.47 inches across.
As it’s so big, holding it might be hard if you have small hands. We’re fans of how curved its sides are, though. They are ergonomic.
Unfortunately, the handset isn’t thin. The thinner a phone is, the more premium it would feel. The mobile has a 9.1 mm width. It’s heavy too. But we’re fans of this, as a bit of weight makes a phone not feel cheap. It is 197 grams.
Take a look at its sides, you’ll find buttons in easy to reach spots. They are tactile as well. We think its fingerprint sensor is in an easy-to-reach spot. And the device unlocks in the blink of an eye.
What was the Y30 made from? You’re looking at a plastic phone. Thankfully, the plastic on it doesn’t feel cheap. It is shiny, which makes it look like glass from afar. The glossiness unfortunately makes it slippery too.
There is no microSD slot. Don’t fear, it comes with decent ROM. If it’s any consolation, a 3.5 mm headphone jack would also be available.
What colours can you pick it up in? Just blue and white. The blue variant is called “Dazzle Blue”, and we think it lives up to its name. It has a beautiful metallic effect.
As its display is so big, immersing in whatever you’re watching would be a breeze.
Don’t worry about denting its front. There is strengthened glass. The manufacturer hasn’t made it public knowledge if it’s Gorilla Glass or not, though.
There is an IPS LCD panel in-place. It doesn’t produce the most vibrant colours, but the Y30 isn’t the most expensive. That being said, there is a great screen-to-body ratio. It is 82% and results in not that much bezel action going on.
How sharp is it? You’ll be met with a 720 x 1560-pixel resolution. As its display is so big, we don’t think such a resolution cuts it. If you look closely, you’ll notice blurriness.
Out of the box, it runs Android 10. You can upgrade it to the latest Android 11. The OS is available through the FunTouch UI. It’s customizable. However, its heavy themes cause its systems to slow down.
You’ll be picking the Y30 up with the Helio P35 inside. It’s a processor that’s not the most powerful. But it’ll handle everyday tasks easily.
How much ROM and RAM will you get? The mobile comes with 64 or 128 GB of space. If you remember, it doesn’t come with a MicroSD slot. The memory available is more than enough. You can purchase it with either 4 or 8 GB of memory.
It’s no surprise that a large battery was placed – it's thick. Do we think this was a decent trade-off? Definitely. The Y30 lasts well over a day. No, its battery is nonremovable.
You’ll be charging it via a 10 W regular charger. It would have to be placed inside of its USB-C port.
Know that the handset takes longer to charge. How do you feel about 2 hours?
Vivo isn’t a brand that is known for its superb cameras. As the Y30 is a budget device, don’t expect a spectacular set-up. There is a quad-camera on its rear. They don’t take pictures that are colour accurate or vibrant. They especially don’t perform well in low-light.
The set-up consists of a 13 MP primary wide lens, a secondary 8 MP ultrawide lens, a tertiary 2 MP macro lens, and a fourth 2 MP depth sensor.
There is a bright LED flash on its rear. You won’t be getting one on its front, though. Speaking of its selfie camera, it consists of a single 8 MP shooter. Instagram-ready pictures won’t be possible.
