The Vivo Y147S, design-wise, resembles previous models in the Vivo Y series with some changes. It’s a lightweight and sleek phone available in purple and green. The overall design is a bit boxy, and the bezels might be larger than some prefer. The selfie camera sits in a notch, not a pinhole, and there’s the bonus of IP54 dust and splash protection.

The Vivo Y17s features a standard HD IPS LCD display. However, it stands out with slightly better brightness compared to some other phones in the market with LCD displays. This kind of lower resolution display might be more power-efficient, consuming less battery than its counterparts.

Vivo phones are well-known for their awesome cameras, and the Vivo Y17s doesn’t disappoint. With a powerful 50 MP rear camera and a 2MP depth sensor, it’s got great reviews for making pictures look better and more vibrant. Though, when it comes to videos, it records at 1080P at 30fps, not the most impressive. The selfie camera is 8MP and can also record videos in 1080P.

This is the part where people wanted Vivo to step up, and guess what? The Vivo Y17s now packs the Mediatek Helio G85 chipset. While it might not be the top-tier in the market, it holds its own, allowing you to play games like PUBG at decent graphic settings. You have got options in the form of 4GB and 6GB variants, along with the 128GB storage.

Nothing fancy here. The Vivo Y17s has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, along with some other sensors. Plus, it comes with a virtual gyroscope sensor instead of a hardware-based one.

The Vivo Y17s keeps things steady with a regular 5000 mAh battery and supports 15W charging. Thanks to its lower resolution display, you might enjoy slightly better battery backup.

Final Verdict

Vivo steps up its game with the Y17s, an improvement from previous Y series models. But hold on! Is it really keeping up with the competition? Here’s the twist – the Infinix Hot 40 Pro comes at a similar price to the 6GB variant of Vivo Y17s. However, the Hot 40 Pro boasts a 108 MP rear camera, a 32 MP selfie camera, a Helio G99 chipset, 8GB RAM, a 120Hz Full HD display, 33W fast charging, and a bunch of other superior features.
