How’s it going guys, we’ll be talking about the new Vivo Y20. This is the newest addition to the Vivo Y series line up and I’ll be taking you through the specs and features and all of the things about this device I found quite interesting. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/03/samsung-galaxy-a51-review-the-best-selling-android-phone-is-back/
This Vivo Y20 in my hand is the 4GB RAM and64GB retailing for 69,900 Naira or $152 and there’s a lesser version with 3GB RAM and32GB storage for 65,900 Naira or $143. So what do you get for sub $150? That and more will be covered in this video, if you want to check out parts of this video relevant to you, simply check out the times tamps for different chapters of this artical. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/03/best-huawei-mate-40-pro-plus-top-5-features/
Without further a do, let’s get to the artical. When it comes to the unboxing experience of the Y20, the first thing you get is a smaller box with paper work and the sim ejector tool. Right under neath it is the device it self, and you do get a protective film on the 6.51 inch front display, of course, it’s a glassand plastic mesh and we’ll come to it later. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/02/which-iphone-should-you-choose-in-2020-2021/
As far as accessories, you do get a huge charging brick, and this phone is capable of 18W flash charge, aka fast charge so it gets that huge5,000 mAh battery up to 70% in just a little over an hour. Specifically in 1 hour and 9 minutes which is cool. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/03/samsung-galaxy-note-20-big-news/
You also get a regular USB cable, and wired headphones. Booting into Funtouch OS 10.5 on the Vivo Y20 took a little over 34 seconds which is just good enough, and the OS seems smooth with the custom skin. When it comes to the build quality, design and materials of the Vivo Y20, as I mentioned, you get a glass screen and a poly carbonate back, or plastic which is good in case it drops. It’s only 192 grams so it’s pretty fair.
Color options for the Vivo Y20 are mainly3, the Obsidian black, Dawn white and Purist Blue. I only got to play with the black and blue but the dawn white seems quite premium based on these ones in my hands. When it comes to Ports and I/O, we’ve got the finger print reader which is also the power button. I’m a fan of this design and it’s become popular of late and I also like that it’s a different shade of blue for the Obsidian Blue version.
Above it is the volume rocker keys. On the left side, we’ve got the SIM and Micro SD card slot. It’s the dual sim kind and no hybrid so you can put your micro sd and sims with no issues. Under neath the phone is the headphone jack, microphone, charging port and speaker.
Up top is where you have the earpiece with the camera in the water drop notch beneath it and on the back is where we get the rectangular camera array section with the “Designed for Y Series” Inscription and logo right below. Indeed the back of the phone and even the display are fingerprint magnets so there’s that to note.
Speaking of the display on this guy, you do have a 6.51 inch LCD IPS display, pretty industry standard for the mid range market. It’s put in a water drop notch screen and it’s got the 2.5D curved glass screen going on. The aspect ratio on here is 20:9, Resolution is HD+ set at 1600 by 720p and it’s a medium density screen at 270 PPI or Pixel Per Inch.
You’ve also got dark mode on here. I found watching and streaming to be good and overall enjoyable. For a market like ours, where data can get quite expensive, this is a consideration for people who would be conserving their data since maximum streaming resolution is 720p up to 60fps so there’s that to note. You do notice the bottom bezel there too.
I also found game play resolution to be sharpas well despite being a 720p screen. I didn’t feel like I missed anything. Sound quality on the Vivo Y20 is okay as well, it’s got a single speaker at the bottom and you can actually block it if you place your hands over it during game play or when you’re reading artical so that’s somethingto note.
You might want to invest in a wireless headphone or use the headphones that Vivo includes in the box. It sounded decently loud and it wasn’t scratched up or anything. Call quality was fine, text and voice over internet was fine as well people on the other side will hear you clearly.
You’ve got Android 10 on here skinned with Fun Touch OS 10.5. Processor on here is the Qualcomm snapdragon 460, an 11 nm Octa-core processor. Similar to a couple of midrange devices in this price range. RAM and ROM options vary for the Y20 as I mentioned earlier in this artical, this version in my hand here, the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage version retails for 69,900 Naira or $152 and there’s a lesser version with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage for 65,900 Naira or $143.
If anyone’s buying, I would suggest the higher version. It’s pretty responsive, and worked smoothly for me and Funtouch OS wasn’t limiting for me and I did find more useful features especially in the settings and when I wanted to game. In facts there’s a feature where you can slide your 3 fingers up to access text message during game play if you don’t want to quit the app immediately or slide 3 fingers down to take a screenshot.
Speaking of gameplay and gaming quality on the Vivo Y20 was at a default medium for call of duty which we always use for our tests, I didn’t notice any lags. It did get slightly warm to the touch but nothing serious at all and gameplay was enjoyable overall. Graphically and in terms of performance. Now, you do get 5,000 mAh battery on here which has been good enough for me personally.
I found standby time to be good and I also found usability for day to day quite good as well. Light use is find and heavy use would get you up to a couple of hours left during the day. 30 minutes of gaming call of duty specifically took only 6% of battery out.
Best vivo Y20 New Features Unboxing and Review!
From 51% it went down to 45%. On the matters of charging, I found the fast charger to be fast of course, although I do wish we had USB C but it does the job. You should get enough power to last you forover 50% of the next day till you need to charge again, and I really did like the standby time performance of the Y20. Something interesting that you also get is Reverse charging.
Basically with an OTG cable, you’ll be able to power up your other device, I mean, you’ve got a 5,000 mAh battery so not only do you have enough power for your own phone but you’ve got enough for another device. As far as the other features that come with the Vivo Y20, you’ve got Bluetooth 5.0, again the fingerprint reader that’s side mounted works pretty fast.
Same with Face Unlock but I preferred using the Fingerprint reader more, especially in these times where we’re wearing masks and people might not want to remove it. When it comes to the camera, Up front it’sa modest 8MP camera that would shoot a maximum of 1080p video in 30 frames per second.
The back has a triple camera setup, 13MP wide,2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor. Okay, but how does it perform? I would say that the selfie quality along side front facing portrait mode was actually impressive when there’s enough light. During the day, you will get the best selfies especially if there’s not so much exposure or the background is not so far from the subject.
There are still more modes in the front camera, panorama mode for group selfies, and Live Photo mode which does a short video alongside the photo taken and you can press and hold to play it. When it comes to the back camera, you do getsome decent shots out of this camera, the reds are a bit more pronounced, in enough light, you would notice the punch in colors and the reds as I mentioned do stand out.
In portrait mode, the same flower can getthe background blurred in the shot and you can also adjust the blur level of the shot before you share and as you can see you can adjust it all the way from f16 with no bokehup to a super open f0.95 which simulates a lot of light coming in and allows for a lot of background blur.
In macro mode, you do get the opportunity of being as close to your subject as possible as you can see here with how the texture shows on the YouTube pillow. For this rose I was super close and if youdon’t pixel peep, and look at it from a distance it looks usable, I took another macromode shot and I practically had the camera lens on the stones and it still picked the texture of them, this was consistent among all the shots I took and I think that’sa commendable thing.
It’s a 2MP macro camera which I would have loved to be higher and with the shots I took, you can get a usable image out of this camera. As far as textures and shooting a larger subject,you can notice the clarity in the clouds and the grounds.
There’s no telephoto camera so it’s all digital zoom on here which is up to 4X but with 1 and 2x selection modes. In 2x mode, it gets a little blurry and you do notice some noise to compensate, this is the same with 4x.
Again, with textures and zoom, you get the quote unquote best image with the 1x lens or the still 13 Megapixel camera when it’s not zoomed. The same pattern is noticed when you zoom, however, here in this image with more sunlight, the texture is more apparent, and lines can be noticed in the tyres.
Here you can see the video recorded right out of the camera. Its maximum recording capacity is 1080p at30 frames per second and it’s not too shaky. Although, there’s no mention of whetherit’s got electronic stabilization. Also, no mention of night mode but I took shots at night with the Y20.
