Vivo Y66 Review – an Affordable Selfie Master


Vivo Y66 Review |

Vivo Y66 is priced at INR 14,990 and features a 16-megapixel selfie camera with LED flash. This is a great device focused around the selfie feature and is priced quite aptly for the features it is delivering.

Chinese smartphone maker Vivo is now moving on the fast lane when it comes to delivering innovative smartphones in India. Most of Vivo’s best-selling smartphones focus around its two pronged strategy to target camera and music-centric categories.

This device is an effort in that direction as well.
The company recently launched the Vivo Y66 smartphone. Priced at INR 14,990, the USP of the selfie-centric smartphone is its front camera which is accompanied by a dedicated flash.

Design and Looks

Vivo Y66 comes as a unibody design with rounded corners and minimal physical buttons. From looks point of view, this feels quite good when you are holding it in your hands.

This smartphone is crafted out of plastic but the rear panel comes in glossy finish and it can surely be mistaken for a metallic design element. Vivo Y66 comes with backlit capacitive keys on the front panel along with the camera sensor, earpiece, proximity sensor, and LED flash on the top.

Hardware and Performance

When it comes to hardware, Vivo Y66 packs a great surprice. This smartphone comes with the MediaTek MT 6750 SoC and offers a lag-free experience. We put this phone to a number of consistent heavy usage tests (such as playing games, listening to music and downloading, uploading movies) and it has not given us any issues with regard to its performance.

In the sub INR 15,000 segment, Vivo Y66 is a smartphone with a big focus towards the selfie segment and comes bundled with light specifications, targeted at the lifestyle set of consumers.

Camera Performance

Vivo Y66 is a camera focused smartphone and carries the company’s camera and music legacy forward. The smartphone comes with Moonlight Glow flash and selfie-centric module as present in other smartphones by Vivo. Vivo Y66 is equipped with a 16-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture along with a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture.

While reviewing the smartphone, we realized that the front camera does its job well by capturing natural colors in the standard mode, with amazing detail.

The smartphone comes with an additional Face Beauty Mode. This is quite interesting and its purpose is to make users look unnaturally blemish-free, fair, rosy, or white. This is especially good feature and can come in handy, in case you dislike editing your selfies.

Final Verdict

Vivo Y66 is a great choice for lifestyle users who look for best of breed features at an affordable price point. Vivo’s connect with masses is helping the company sell across the country and as Vivo is an offline focused company – there is no doubt on the way it is making efforts to make its products available across India.

This is an ideal device for consumers who are looking for adding that extra selfie zing into their lifestyles. Vivo Y66 fits right with its stylish, design front camera with flash, 4G VoLTE support, and a decent battery performance.
