According to Canalys, Vivo is currently the top fourth phone brand in the global 5G smartphone market. While they are one of the dominant companies in the 5G smartphone industry, the brand also continues offering top-notch 4G phones at a budget price. That being said, Vivo Y33s 4G is a new addition to the market. With 8GB/128GB, 5000 mAh battery, and 2408×1080 FHD+ resolution, Vivo Y33s launched in Bangladesh on March 31, 2022. Let's find out more about Vivo Y33s from this review.
Key Features of Vivo Y33s
The flat, big-screen may make the phone feel bulky; however, it weighs around 182 grams. But, adding a thin phone case may reduce the bulk feel. The right side of the Y33s contains three buttons, including a volume rocker and a power button. The power button also has a fingerprint sensor. The SIM card tray atop the phone is easily accessible for SIM cards. It can hold two nano-SIM cards as well as one microSD memory card.
The Vivo Y33 is mainly made of plastic and feels like plastic whenever you touch it. So, using it without a back cover will surely result in some unwanted scratches.
The 3.5-mm headphone port and power input are found at the bottom of the phone, and the USB-C charging port and speaker grille can be found there too.
Equipped with a MediaTek Helio G80, the Vivo Y33s has excellent overall performance. It runs apps without issue while simultaneously scrolling across many different news feeds. However, it may become slow if a lot of apps are open in the background and as notifications pile up.
Further, Vivo Y33s' gaming performance is limited to casual games, and heavy games will result in a lower graphics quality. The phone comes with 8GB and 4 GB RAM options. So, higher RAM will undoubtedly boost the performance.
A pleasant addition to the Y33s is the Full HD-resolution screen. Smartphones with similar specs to the Y33's don't typically come with high-definition displays, so these may already be an improvement for one of these phones. This IPS display has great viewing angles and is quite good at reproducing colors, too. Hence, this is satisfying compared to the 720p displays from the competitors.
Although the screen feels soft to me, it is a bit fuzzy when you use it outdoors as it can be a bit of a challenge for you to understand the usual view without distorting it.
Overall, the display is good for people who have long Commute rugs because it gives them the opportunity to watch Netflix shows or gaming games without.
Vivo Y33s comes with a 50 Megapixel main camera and a 2MP+2MP camera, which is the prominent selling feature of the phone. The Samsung CMOS image sensor with a 1/2.76″ sensor size, a wide f/1.8 aperture lens, and 0.64μm pixel size is the type of camera that many users have given positive feedback about.
The AI-controlled camera has a 12.5-megapixel resolution that combines four pixels into one image and works great on low-light performance. Further, the 50-megapixel mode is available when the camera is set to a high sensitivity level. The camera also has scene recognition that applies the best settings and turns on or off the HDR feature.
With the right lighting, this camera can take good images that look great. Capturing a reasonable amount of detail, with some minor adjustments on Snapseed, is where your photos get their own set of tools to help you capture a perfect photo. You can adjust saturation, sharpening, and more to make sure your photos are dramatic in the right place.
The front camera is 16 MP to take selfies. The aperture for the front cam is f/2.0, and the rare aperture is f/1.5 (50MP), f/2.4 (2MP), and f/2.4 (2MP).
Connectivity, Sound Quality, and Security
The Vivo Y33s provide fast internet speed with a 4G LTE network. Further, the phone also supports 5GHz Wi-Fi networks. It also comes with USB Type-C for wired connectivity. The Bluetooth 5.0 technology allows you to prompt Bluetooth connectivity. Further, the phone supports GPS, OTG, and FM. On the earpiece, voice calls sound clear, while the loudspeaker may not sound good. So, you should try listening to music or watching videos via earphones.
The Vivo Y33s is equipped with 5000 mAh that can last about 2 days after a single charge and normal usage. On the PCMark Battery Life Test 2.0, the battery life is 16 hours and 43 minutes. The test indicates the battery longevity while simulating real-world tasks such as playing videos, web browsing, pictures, etc.
The phone may take around 2 hours and 35 minutes for a full charge. However, if you charge using an 18W charger, it may take 35 minutes.
Official Price of Vivo Y33s 4G in Bangladesh
The Vivo Y33s 4G's 8GB/128GB variant is officially available in Bangladesh at BDT 20,990. However, the price is subject to change depending upon circumstances.
The Vivo Y33s 4G is an excellent smartphone for taking photos, streaming videos and browsing social media feeds. Its cameras are great for taking selfies during the day and viewing videos at night, and it has a screen with a large display and long battery life.
Nevertheless, its gaming performance isn't up to par for the price. It can run popular games smoothly but with poor graphics quality.
Smartphones are designed to be used specifically by certain groups of people. The Vivo Y33s is designed to be used in particular by photographers, for media consumption, and for long battery life.
