  • Weak SoC for the price
  • Lacks reinforced glass

The Vivo Y55s is the follow up to the Y55L, which launched last year. This new model is priced at around the same level as the outgoing one, and its main highlight seems to be the fact that it has 3GB of RAM, as made clear by the prominent gold lettering on the box.

The smartphone retails for Rs.12,490, which puts it in a highly competitive segment. We already have the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (Review), Honor 6X (Review) and Moto G4 Plus (Review) in this price band. Based purely on specifications, the Vivo Y55s already seems to be at a disadvantage compared to these three, but let’s not rule it out as an option just yet.
 

Vivo Y55s Summary

The Y55s from Vivo has a candybar design with 2.5D glass in the front, and a plastic back. The 5.2-inch HD display has decent colours and brightness but lacks any form of scratch protection. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The quad-core SoC works well for the UI but isn’t powerful enough for heavier apps and games. There’s a dedicated microSD card slot, in addition to the dual 4G SIM slots. MicroSD cards of up to 256GB are supported. The 13-megapixel rear camera captures decent pictures in good lighting but they lack sharpness and detail once you zoom in. The front 5-megapixel camera is also not bad under good lighting but isn’t very effective in the dark. Battery life is the phone’s biggest strength as the 2730mAh battery will last you an entire workday.
