Reviews for the Vivo Y66

60% Vivo Y66 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English version
Priced at Rs 14,990, the Vivo Y66 feels out of place in the current market. For starters the build quality isn’t premium - most smartphone manufacturers currently offer metal bodies at this price level. The display resolution is also lower than what the competition ships, and the biggest blow to the Y66 in our opinion is the omission of a fingerprint sensor. Considering that significantly less expensive phones now sport fingerprint scanners, the Y66 definitely seems overpriced.

The Vivo Y66 is a good handset performance wise, front camera is good and rear camera needs improvement. Battery life is also pretty good. Having said that this handset is pricey and better options are available.

65% Vivo Y66 smartphone review: An uninspiring device that packs a decent camera

At this price range, the Redmi Note 4 is cheaper, made of metal, and much faster. The slightly more expensive Moto G5 is better built and faster as well. Then there’s also the battery life king, the Asus Zenfone 3S Max.

We'd say we liked the Vivo Y66. But at a price of Rs 14,990, we were expecting more features. Smartphones that are priced much lesser than the Y66 offer more features such as fingerprint sensors and Full HD displays. So unless you're too fond of clicking selfies, we'd suggest considering alternatives such as Coolpad Note 5.

Source: Gadget Diary English version
If you are looking forward to buying a good-looking selfie phones from offline stores and don’t give two hoots about the fingerprint sensor, you can save some money and go with the Vivo Y66. If you are comfortable spending more and want a phone with the Fingerprint sensor, go for the Vivo V5.

Vivo Y66 Review

On the face of it, the Vivo Y66 is just another smartphone with a selfie-focused gimmick. In its favor though, the cameras on the device are pretty competitive. The entire package too isn’t very shabby with a bright, vibrant screen and decent battery life.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

65.2%: 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.
