Reviews for the Vivo Y53

76% Vivo Y53 Review
Source: Phone World English version
Vivo is a new company recently launched in Pakistan with its affordable smart phones. The vivo y53 is mid-range device with satisfactory features but the best part of vivo y53 is the Qualcomm Chipset which makes it better than so many other mid-range devices. The look is similar with Oppo and IPhone plus it has given us good results in every field and it is ready to use.

Vivo Y53 Review
Source: Yugatech English version
The Vivo Y53 is not a successor to the last year’s Y55 but rather an update to the 2015’s Y51. Despite being a fresh release in the country, it recently got a price cut to Php5,990 making it a thousand peso cheaper than before. For Php6k, though, some local OEMs already have a beefier budget phone with an HD display and a more competent shooter.

Qualcomm Adreno 308: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 425 SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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

This display is tiny. You will probably see very little on the screen and be able to use mini-resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

76%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
