Vivo is outstanding in India on account of its high-volume exposure battles highlighting big names and its sponsorship of real games competitions. The organization hit the number three spot in India as far as cell phone shipments for the primary quarter of this current year, multiplying its figures contrasted with a similar period a year ago. That is in spite of doing whatever it takes not to upset the market with amazingly low costs and high determinations like Xiaomi, Realme, and now Samsung do. Vivo advances its telephones' camera abilities intensely, and has ridden numerous patterns at the opportune time, discharging telephones with astounding selfie cameras, in-show unique finger impression sensors, borderless screens, and brilliant designed bodies. 
Vivo Y17 Review

The organization as of late propelled the Vivo Y17 (₹ 15,990), a sub-Rs. 20,000 telephone that gloats of three back cameras and a gigantic 5,000mAh battery. It looks smooth and has many highlights that will entice purchasers, particularly the individuals who aren't also whined about details. Here's our full survey. 


There's not much or new about the general structure of the Vivo Y17. It's a level chunk with adjusted sides and a waterdrop-style score for the front camera. Be that as it may, this telephone has character because of the decision of profound gem tone hues for the casing and back board. 

You can pick between Mineral Blue and Mystic Purple, the two of which are quite unusual. The two choices have slope completes, with the Mineral Blue one blurring into an a lot darker tone at the base, and the Mystic Purple doing likewise, however at the top. In the event that you look carefully and tilt the telephone so it gets the light, you'll see a fine example of slanting lines. Vivo says this is motivated by the interaction of water and light. 

Our blue audit unit had an eye-finding gold ring around the somewhat jutting triple camera module on the back, while the purple choice simply has a coordinating purple ring. The casing of the telephone has a similar slope as the back.

The material utilized for the back board is plastic, however it looks like it has the profundity of glass. As decent as the completion of this telephone seems to be, it grabs fingerprints and smircesh in all respects effectively. 

The showcase of the Vivo Y17 has a somewhat irregular 19.3:9 viewpoint proportion, however this has no down to earth effect to ease of use. The bended sides veil how thick the outskirts to the sides of the screen are however there's no concealing the thick jaw. Vivo sent our survey unit to us with a plastic screen defender officially stuck on it, and we found the upper edge somewhat scratchy against our ear. 

The power and volume catches are situated low enough on the correct side to be inside the compass of our thumb, yet the unique finger impression sensor on the back was only excessively high for our loving. There's a plate on the left with individual patterns for two Nano-SIMs just as a microSD card. We're marginally baffled to see a Micro-USB port on the base. There's likewise a 3.5mm headset attachment and a solitary speaker. 

The Vivo Y17 is a genuinely overwhelming telephone at 190.5g, and at 8.92mm thick, it likewise isn't the most pocketable. That is the tradeoff Vivo has made so as to fit in the huge 5000mAh battery, so a great deal of purchasers will in any case be happy. Fortunately the back board isn't tricky in any way, so despite the fact that one-gave use was clumsy, we didn't feel as if the Y17 may tumble from our grip when we were extending with one thumb.  


The MediaTek Helio P35 processor is an abnormal decision, as it has appeared in telephones that cost considerably less than the Vivo Y17, most prominently the Oppo A5s (₹ 9,490) (Review). This is a mid-extend processor with eight ARM Cortex-A53 centers all running at 2.3GHz, and an incorporated PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The Vivo Y17 arrives in a solitary setup with 4GB of RAM and a moderately liberal 128GB of capacity. 

The 6.35-inch screen has a goals of 720x1544 in a 19.3:9 angle proportion, and Vivo has utilized a standard LCD board. A few different cell phones at this value level, including the Samsung Galaxy M30 (₹ 14,990) (Review) and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro (₹ 15,995) (Review) highlight predominant full-HD boards. 

One of the enormous selling purposes of this telephone is its 5000mAh battery, however inquisitively Vivo doesn't distribute any battery life guarantees as far as hours for setting like most organizations do. The Y17 accompanies a 18W charger and the organization says this telephone bolsters "double motor" quick charging, which implies there's additional hardware for speed just as security. 

Vivo says the Y17 underpins double band Wi-Fi, however hasn't indicated which variant. You likewise get Bluetooth 5, GPS, and FM radio. 4G with VoLTE is bolstered on both SIMs in the meantime. Notwithstanding the standard encompassing light and closeness sensors, there's an e-compass and virtual whirligig. 

In the case, you get the 18W charger, a Micro-USB link, a wired headset, a reasonable plastic case, a SIM launch device, and a few pamphlets. The headset resembles an Apple EarPods knockoff and doesn't have elastic tips. 

Stock Android has a vocal fanbase nowadays, yet Vivo has gone crazy with customisations in its Funtouch OS 9, in light of Android 9.0. There's a ton to take in, beginning with the lock screen, which indicates arbitrary photographs and stories from Vivo's own Lockscreen Poster administration. Fortunately there are no promotions here yet. 

The home screens are genuinely jumbled, and Vivo has gone with an extremely old style of Android route catches including the since quite a while ago deplored Menu catch symbol for the application switcher. You can change to the present style or change to signals from inside the Settings application. 

All application symbols are found here since there's no application cabinet, and there's a great deal of them. Vivo has preinstalled an entire bundle of applications including its own V-Appstore, Vivo Browser, Vivocloud information reinforcement administration, Easyshare document sharing instrument, I Manager for general security and support undertakings, and I Theme for UI customisation. 

At that point there are heaps of repetitive apparatuses including an email customer, photograph exhibition, and sound and video players. None of these can be evacuated. You clearly get Google's default applications also, notwithstanding outsider applications including Facebook, WhatsApp, Gaana, UC Browser, Amazon shopping, NewsPoint, PhonePe, Paytm, and WPS Office. 

Vivo has upgraded everything from the notices shade to the default applications. Brisk switches aren't in the shade; you need to swipe upwards from the base of the screen to pull up the iOS-style "Easy route Center" which is additionally jumbled. You can include snappy instruments just as explicit activities inside applications, for example, Scan and Pay with Paytm, or Search Hotels with MakeMyTrip. 

In the event that you empower motions rather than catches for UI route, you'll need to adapt precisely where to swipe so you don't pull up the Shortcut Center accidentally. 

The Settings application is totally redone and not all controls are the place you may hope to discover them. Funtouch OS has some helpful contacts however. You can do loads of things with only one tap, similar to take looking over screen captures, clone good errand person applications directly from the home screen, and divert on USB record sharing from the warnings shade. 

There's a worked in screen video recorder and heaps of framework wide alternate routes to trigger activities or run applications based on your personal preference. The capacity to set the accurate corner roundness of application symbols is an eccentric little touch. In any case, Android 9's helpful application symbol menus with notices and activity alternate ways are absent. 

Vivo has its own fundamental shrewd partner called Jovi, and it's found all through Funtouch OS. You can rapidly call up a Paytm or QR code scanner starting from the pull seek device. The screen to one side of the main home screen is called Jovi Smart Scene, and it indicates cards for things like games scores, the climate, to-dos, and a framework wide perusing rundown that you can spare articles or screen captures to from any application. It should almost certainly show updates for up and coming occasions and sports matches, show climate alerts, and help you track online buys, however these situations didn't come up amid our audit period. 


The Vivo Y17 probably won't have the most dominant equipment in its value section, yet it functioned admirably enough for us amid our audit. We were stressed that Funtouch OS may be enlarged and moderate, yet that wasn't the situation either. The telephone was sensibly responsive and UI movements were reliably smooth. Unique mark and face acknowledgment both functioned admirably and we had no bad things to say. 

The screen is a touch of disappointing, with washed-out hues and somewhat harsh edges around symbols and content. Notwithstanding, seeing points are incredible and it can get splendid. We thought that it was anything but difficult to utilize this telephone under unforgiving daylight. You just get Widevine L3 confirmation which limits video spilling to sub-HD goals for certain administrations, yet the screen isn't full-HD in any case.

The single speaker on the base was very terrible, delivering just grinding, unforgiving sound. The packaged headset has an open, empty sound and can't generally deal with bass frequencies, yet isn't terrible in general for easygoing tuning in. 

Execution in benchmark tests was as powerless as we had expected dependent on the processor that Vivo has decided for this telephone. The Y17 set up a score of just 87,048 in AnTuTu, and Geekbench gave us 769 and 4,106 points in its single-and multi-center tests separately. We additionally got scores of 798 and 9,356 in 3DMark's Sling Shot and Ice Storm Extreme tests. The telephone just overseen 29fps in GFXBench's T-rex scene and 12fps in the Manhattan 3.1 scene.

The CPU scores are less fortunate than those of the Samsung Galaxy M30, however the designs scores are better. The lower-estimated Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 ProRealme 3 Pro, and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 (₹ 13,999) conveyed better scores all around. 

This demonstrating made us stress over how amusements would run. We started up PUBG Mobile and it defaulted to the Low quality setting, yet and still, at the end of the day movement was jumpy and we needed to manage visit transient stops that left us helpless against being shot. Black-top 9: Legends set aside a long effort to stack and even the UI was laggy, yet we had the option to run a couple of races. Fortunately this telephone just got in all respects marginally warm, and the battery level didn't fall excessively while we were gaming. 
Vivo Y17 Review

Discussing the battery, this is one zone in which the Vivo Y17 found real success. Our HD video circle test kept running for 18 hours, 57 minutes which is quite great. With ordinary use, including a touch of photography, an hour or so of video gushing, and a lot of time spent utilizing different applications, we had the option to make this telephone keep going for multi day and a half before it should have been revived. The included 18W charger is somewhat cumbersome yet charges the telephone rapidly. 

The Vivo Y17 has a 13-megapixel f/2.2 essential back camera with an optional 8-megapixel f/2.2 wide-point camera and a 2-megapixel f/2.4 profundity sensor for representation shots. This isn't especially great, particularly the high gaps which demonstrate that low-light execution probably won't be sufficient that different telephones at this value level have set. Vivo has rather centered around the front camera, which has a 20-megapixel goals and f/2.0 gap. 

The camera application has a few peculiarities. For instance, there's a representation impact switch when utilizing the front camera, however an alternate gap flip in a better place when utilizing the back camera. Beautification is a different mode inside and out, yet there's no picture mode. The catch that switches between the principle and wide-point focal points is not entirely obvious; settled in succession with the clock and channel catches. The Settings menu is unusually spread out with various selectable choices in certain lines. 

The Jovi right hand springs up here as well. One of the channels is a 'man-made intelligence' alternative that professes to pick the best one relying upon the scene, yet these are typically an abstract decision dependent on the impact a client needs to make so its viability is faulty. There's likewise 'man-made intelligence' beautification (for the front camera just) which should work dependent on the sexual orientation and age of the individual taking a selfie. 

The shots we took in the daytime weren't really awful, however the center didn't generally bolt splendidly and the Vivo Y17 appeared to battle with unpretentious differences. We would never entirely be sure that photographs would be sharp when we zoomed in to 100 percent, and some photographs that looked fine on the telephone's screen were very hazy when opened out at full size. So, hues were punchy and lively, and macros by and large turned out better. 

When changing to the wide-edge camera, quality unquestionably endured a hotshot and hues were considerably less exact. Surfaces looked counterfeit and overprocessed, and twisting was discernible. 

Around evening time, the Vivo Y17's cameras unquestionably battled. The center was delicate, questions in the closer view were grainy, and subtleties were cloudy in the majority of our examples. Close-ups were fairly usable, yet shots of items at a separation weren't much good. The wide-edge camera conveyed poor outcomes once more. 

The front camera took great shots in the daytime however we needed to battle with some obscuring brought about by our hand not being consummately still when shooting outside during the evening. Beautification really helps when it's at its most minimal settings. 

The default video goals is 1280x720 for reasons unknown, and there's no adjustment so our accounts were very precarious. The nature of video, both under daylight and around evening time, was frustrating. 


The Vivo Y17 looks great and has amazing battery life just as brisk charging. It has heaps of extra room and the front camera is really better than average. You may be content with it in everyday use in the event that you stick to normal online life and informing applications. Unfortunately, that is the place the intrigue closes. 

This telephone is basically dominated by different models accessible at its cost, and even by a few that cost significantly less. The processor, show, and cameras are not great enough given how hard Vivo's rivals are pushing at this moment. This telephone isn't appropriate for top notch gaming, it can't take extraordinary photographs or record great video, and the product is cumbersome to live with in spite of there being some smart thoughts in there. 

Vivo appears to have planned this telephone for individuals with extremely straightforward necessities, however we don't perceive any motivation to spend quite a lot of cash for this dimension of highlights and execution. The Redmi Note 7 Pro (Review) and Realme 3 Pro (Review) are better telephones and will set aside you some cash too — in the event that you can get one of them when they're available, that is.
