Vivo Y70 smartphone Review - Lots of memory and battery power in a slim design

Good Midranger. The Vivo Y70 starts as an inexpensive mid-range smartphone under 300 Euros (~$300) and offers an appealing design, an AMOLED screen, and a triple camera. Especially the quite fast Qualcomm SoC and the long update support can be the deciding factors for buying the device, but we also discovered some minor issues in detail.

Case, equipment and operation

The Vivo Y70 is available in Oxygen Blue and Gravity Black, the latter being our review sample. The casing is completely made of plastic on the outside, but it still looks high-quality and fits very well in the hand due to its low weight and slim build of 7.83 millimeters. The gaps are mostly tight, only the transition between the back and the frame is not even in all places when looking closely

The Y70's extensive UFS storage can additionally be expanded via microSD card, but it does not support the exFAT file system and cannot be formatted as internal storage. The USB 2.0 port supports OTG and an audio jack is integrated, but there is no FM receiver

Our review sample was shipped with Google Android 10 and Funtouch OS, but the update to Android 11 was rolled out during the test. Vivo also promises software support and security updates for four years for the Y70.

The Wi-Fi module of Vivo's smartphone supports Wi-Fi 5 (IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and provides a decent speed and high stability of the connection in combination with our reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12. The smartphone accesses the data network via LTE at best and offers decent frequency coverage, which is absolutely sufficient for inner-European use

During a phone call, the Vivo Y70 user's voice is rendered clearly and with low noise as long as there are no persistent, loud interfering noises. In such a case, these are muffled, but the speaker is then also transmitted quite muffled and short interruptions can occur. If we switch to the speakerphone, we can already hear a hall in the immediate vicinity of the Y70. If we move further away from the smartphone, we can hardly be understood from one meter. The Vivo phone offers a full dual-SIM solution and supports VoLTE as well as Wi-Fi calling

Both a fingerprint scanner integrated into the display and 2D facial recognition are available for biometric security. The former responds quite reliably, but not always very quickly

Cameras - Vivo Y70 with 48 MP optics

Selfie with the Y70
Selfie with the Y70

The front-facing camera of the Vivo Y70 enables appealing pictures in good lighting conditions and also has a portrait mode with adjustable blur. It is also possible to be inspired by fade-in poses, which are sorted by subject. Videos are recorded in 1,080p with 30 FPS at best

The main camera enables decent photos and also copes well with backlit subjects. Zooming is only possible digitally and up to a maximum of ten times magnification. The sensor quickly reaches its limits in dark environments, but it also has a night mode on board. The app offers a Pro mode, among other things, and also allows the full use of the 48 MP, which are otherwise added to 12 MP with pixel binning

Videos can be recorded in Ultra HD (30 FPS) or Full HD (30 and 60 FPS)

Display - AMOLED in the Vivo smartphone

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

The 6.44-inch (16.36 cm) AMOLED panel of the Vivo Y70 offers a high pixel density and a correspondingly sharp display. The brightness achieves a good and very evenly distributed luminosity with a full-screen white reproduction. It is even up to 746 cd/m² in the APL50 measurement. If you adjust the brightness manually, you only have 387 cd/m² available. The panel is also certified for HDR10 playback

The measurement with the oscilloscope shows typical OLED flickering; the Y70 does not have a DC dimming mode. The color reproduction is quite cool in the factory settings. Users who want a natural reproduction should switch to the Normal profile in the settings, which only uses the smaller sRGB color space instead of DCI-P3

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
4.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.8 ms rise
↘ 2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.2 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 245.1 Hz ≤ 99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 245.1 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 245.1 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9726 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The Vivo Y70 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 with 8 GB of working memory, which ensures a good system performance in everyday use. The integrated Adreno 610 is one of the weaker GPUs and demanding games will not be rendered in full details. It is positive that Vivo uses fast UFS storage, which is far superior to conventional eMMC storage even in the older 2.0 version used here. However, the microSD slot only shows slow read and write rates in combination with our reference card Toshiba Exceria Pro M501

The surface temperatures remain harmless at all times and the SoC is not negatively affected by high load either. The mono speaker on the bottom edge is one of the better ones of its kind, but sounds a bit hollow at high volumes. The audio jack is convincing and shows a very good signal-to-noise ratio

The 4,100 mAh battery provides the Vivo Y70 with good battery runtimes. The smartphone can be fully recharged in less than two hours with the included 33-watt power adapter

Pros

+ much and fast memory
+ good battery runtimes
+ clear audio jack
+ fast charging
+ long update supply

Cons

- lame microSD slot without exFAT
- Additional camera lenses without added value

Verdict - Good start in the midrange

In review: Vivo Y70. Test device provided by Vivo Germany.
In review: Vivo Y70. Test device provided by Vivo Germany.

Vivo's Y70 is a good mid-range smartphone that primarily stands out from the crowd with its long update promise of four years. It has a good OLED screen, a fast system performance, and above all a lot of storage space. The voice quality and battery runtimes are also convincing in the test

The Vivo Y70 is a good mid-range smartphone that is technically convincing for the most part, but has shortcomings in the microSD slot and the cameras

Small compromises have to be made with the triple camera. While the main sensor enables decent pictures, the two additional lenses are without real added value in everyday use. Furthermore, the microSD card slot is comparatively slow and does not support exFAT. It is also positive that Vivo provides the buyer with a suitable fast charger

As a child I was fascinated by my Commodore 16, and this sparked my enthusiasm for computers. Using my first modem, I surfed the BTX videotext system and later the World Wide Web. I have always been captivated by the latest technologies, and this is especially true for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. I’ve been part of the Notebookcheck team since 2013 and have also on occasion written for Notebookinfo.de, and I’m looking forward to testing new innovations for our readers. I like to spend my spare time indulging in photography and barbecues and being with my family.
