Reviews for the Vivo Y70

79.7% Vivo Y70 smartphone Review - Lots of memory and battery power in a slim design | Notebookcheck
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.
70% Vivo Y70 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
In many areas, the Vivo Y70 offers everything people are looking for in a modern smartphone. There’s a gorgeous AMOLED display, 33W fast charging and impressive cameras for the price. Performance is solid if not spectacular, while the highly reflective rear design helps it stand out aesthetically.

60% Vivo Y70 review
Source: Techradar English
The Vivo Y70 makes an effort to dazzle with its large, vibrant AMOLED display and impressively fast charging. But its design, camera and performance feel disappointingly half-hearted. With the Poco X3 NFC bringing out the big guns for much less money, and several well-specced rivals asking for just a little extra, the Vivo Y70 seems destined to be overlooked.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


SD 665: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.44":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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


0.171 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


75.19%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
