Reviews for the Vivo Y21

Vivo Y21 Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The most attractive feature of the Vivo Y21 phone is its battery capacity. For general users, it can be a perfect choice to perform all activities on a single charge all day long. The tall screen is enough for a good experience when playing movies or games. It also has a decent storage capacity and dedicated SD slot to meet your extra storage needs without compromising the use of the Dual Sim feature. However, the Vivo Y21 phone does not support NFC, 5G, and gyro-EIS sensors. The charger is fast, but not too fast, and it doesn’t have a reverse charge feature. The camera is pretty decent, but not standard compared to the current market. But overall at this price range, the Vivo Y21 is a decent choice. After all, if the features sound appealing to you, go for it according to your needs. If you are looking for an alternative option, you can take a look at the Realme Q3s as an alternative option.

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.
