Vivo Y3s Review


  1. It is good to have a friendly size in your pocket and the body structure looks decent.
  2. A 6.35 inches waterdrop notch IPS LCD display comes on the phone.
  3. The dual-camera setup with an 8 MP selfie camera is really average.
  4. Very efficient octa-core processor that matches the Helio P35 chipset.
  5. Huge 5000 mAh long battery, with 10 W fast charger to support the whole system.
  6. The huge internal memory of 128 GB and support of 4 GB of RAM slightly improve the processing speed of the phone.

Design and Display

The rear panel of the Vivo Y3S is plastic, but it looks modern and premium, thanks to its bright and standard design. It is very comfortable to hold, considering its much heavier weight (191 g) and thickness (8.9 mm). The fingerprint sensor is on the back and works perfectly.

In terms of performance, it comes with a remarkable 2.3 GHz octa-core Cortex A-53 processor with a decent Mediatek Helio P35 SoC. For games, the PowerVR GE8320 GPU is provided, which can only run high-end games with low or medium configurations and some games like Asphalt 9 require more optimization to be played.


In terms of camera configuration, here quality has been preferred over quantity. The rear camera configuration on Vivo Y3S consists of just a 13 MP primary camera and a 2 MP depth sensor.

An additional LED flash and autofocus feature are also present. Normal, portrait, and low-light photos are excellent and clearer than you would expect. The front has a single 8 MP camera and the quality is highly recommended. Both the rear and front cameras can record Full HD video at 1080p.
