Reviews for the Vivo U10

60% Vivo U10 review: A capable performer
Source: Gadgets Now English version
Overall it is a good phone which will cater to the overall general expectation of the buyers. But for those who have set Rs 10,000 as their ceiling price for a cellphone (irrespective of the comfort and features) , the additional 990 may appear heavy on their pocket especially when Redmi 8 or the Realme 5 comes below the Rs 10,000 mark.

80% Vivo U10 review: Another value for money phone from Vivo
Source: The Indian Express English version
Performance, cameras, and battery life are the three parameters that matter the most for a budget smartphone and the Vivo U10 does good on all three of them. The design of the phone is an added bonus and for Rs 8,990, the Vivo U10 should not have a problem competing with Redmi and Realme phones in the budget segment.

70% Vivo U10 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English version
It seems as though going online-only has allowed Vivo to deliver some seriously competitive hardware on a very tight budget. The Vivo U10 performs admirably and looks pretty slick. We often felt as though we were using a phone that was in a higher price bracket. On the other hand, it's bulky and awkward to use, with a UI that we really think needs to be toned down.

Vivo U10 First Impression
Source: The Mobile Indian English version
The combination of the triple-camera setup at the rear and 5,000mAh battery is the major USP of Vivo U10 at this price. It seems to be a decent smartphone but the performance and user interface needs to be tested thoroughly before giving our final verdict. As for the competition is concerned, the smartphone will face a tough competition with the likes of Realme 5, Samsung Galaxy M10s, Moto E6s, Lenovo K10 Plus and more.

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 665: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
