Features Of Vivo Y12
On that note, let us discuss the different features in this Vivo Y12 review in a little more detail:
On the front, you get to see a waterdrop notch followed by a large display. The bezels are perfect. It is not a bezel-less display but not a small compact one either. On the back, you get the plastic body with a glossy finish. It comes in two colors- Aqua Blue and Burgundy Red. Both of which have a dual-tone to them and that is what sets it apart from other mobile phones from Vivo and even other manufacturers. Also, though it is a low- mid-range smartphone it gives a premium feel when you use and hold it. All in all, it is the perfect example of how far we have come in terms of the design of smartphones after the invention of mobile phones.
The display on this one is an IPS LCD of 6. 35 inches. The screen resolution is 720 x 1544 pixels. Even at the first glance, we have to say that the screen is quite vibrant and colorful. You will have a good experience watching videos and movies on this display. As for the brightness, it was decent enough for the price you are paying.
The Vivo Y12 comes with a Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 Octa-core processor and runs on FunTouch OS Android 9 Pie. The chipset is entry-level and what you usually get in a smartphone priced near the budget of 15,000. But, there are several variations in terms of the RAM and storage, and kudos to Vivo for that.
The performance that this device has to offer is good only for users who have light to medium usage. For example, calling, texting, scrolling through social media, watching YouTube etc. However, if you are a heavy user who likes to use heavy gaming apps like PUBG and other such games or edits videos you will find the performance to be disappointing. This chipset and processor is not good enough for multitasking as well.
The primary camera on Vivo Y12 is a triple camera setup of 13 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP. The selfie camera is 8 megapixels. The rear camera is quite good with pictures being one of the best in this price range. It has got an ultrawide lens as well for some good photos.
It features a battery backup of 5000 mAh which is quite good and impressive. For our users who are more caught in their job and professional life and do not spend a lot of time on their mobile screens, the battery will last you for about one and a half days. And for the heavy users, it will last for one whole day. However, it does not support fast charging and the charger you get is 10 watts. So, if you are completing charging the battery you will have to wait for a minimum of 2 and a half hours.
This Vivo Y12 review and the smartphone is for those who want a mobile phone with a good display, good camera, and normal daily usage. But, if you are a gamer or content creator you might want to go for a smartphone with a better processor.
