The Vivo Y55s makes for a decent entry-level smartphone but simply isn’t strong enough to hold its own against its current competition. The Redmi Note 4, Moto G4 Plus and Honor 6X are much better options that will serve you a lot better. The Y55s has some good qualities like a comfortable form factor, good battery life, dedicated microSD card slot and 4G with VoLTE support, but it needs a more powerful SoC, a higher resolution display, a fingerprint sensor and better cameras.

To sum it up, the Vivo Y55s does gives a good battery backup and doesn’t disappoint on multi-tasking or performing regular tasks. But still, it lacks two features, which have become a standard in this price segment: Full HD display and fingerprint sensor. In our opinion, there are many other devices like Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Honor 6X, Coolpad Note 5, and more, which gives a far better performance and specifications as compared to this one. To conclude, the Force is not that Strong with this one.

The Vivo Y55s is a depandable smartphone, and it'll reach more people, being sold offline. It's good to know that offline buyers have a dependable phone to buy, but in the market at large, the Y55s is simply not up to its competition. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 costs about the same and is faster, with better battery life and faster performance. On the other hand, the Moto G5 Plus costs much more, but has a vastly better camera, faster performance and better battery life too. The Vivo Y55s is appreciable, but not what we would recommend.

The Vivo Y55s is a decent phone that scores when it comes to camera as the images turn out to be crisp, clear and bring out good color. It has a good build and is lightweight. However, at a price point of Rs. 12,490 the phone does not come with a fingerprint sensor which is a letdown. It supports dual SIM cards and has a dedicated micro SD card slot which is great. To sum it up, here are the pros and cons.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
