The Cost and Color

The phone is presented in two distinct hues: the Diamond Glow and the Midnight Blue. The Midnight Blue color is a personal favorite of mine. Although the rear frame is plastic, as with most phones in this price range, the attractive design representing diamond cuts that fit neatly on the back of the phone will captivate everyone.

Don't worry, it's not smudge-free, but you can easily wipe it off with a towel. This smartphone costs about Rs 15490; it's a dual sim phone with a 4G connection.

A rectangular camera pad on the back of the phone houses a dual-camera setup. The selfie camera on the front of the phone has a water drop notch at the top middle of the display.

The dual-camera setup on the phone's rear consists of a 13MP Wide-angle camera and a 2MP Macro camera. The rear camera system has an LED flashlight. The phone supports the following image capture modes: Normal; Pro; Portrait with Effects; HDR; Google Lens; Live Filter; and Live Photo.

Memory and Storage

The Vivo Y21 smartphone has 4GB of random access memory (RAM) and 64GB of internal storage. However, these memory configurations are expandable via an SD Card, allowing for 1GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, respectively. That makes the Vivo Y21 smartphone a good choice for memory capacity.

Vivo Y21 Screen

The enormous 6.51-inch screen presents excellent screen features. The 6.51-inch big LCD IPS screen makes it simple to view the screen information. Due to the bezels on the phone's outside borders, the screen-to-body ratio is 81.8%, which is still relatively large. The most appealing aspect of this screen is that it can be used with just one hand.

The screen's 720x1600 pixel resolution produces vivid and realistic colors. Although there were some issues when the phone rotated, the phone had a sharp display and contrast ratio when appropriately used. The screen also performed admirably in direct sunlight.


Vivo Y21 has another beautiful feature, the large 5000 mAh battery. According to the test results, the battery effortlessly gives a backup of 1.5 days. While this is an excellent feature, Vivo has taken it further with its fast-charging option, which requires only 18W of electricity and can charge the phone from 0 to 100% in about one hour and fifteen minutes. The benefit of purchasing this affordable phone is significantly increased by it.

Processor and Chipset

The Vivo Y21 smartphone runs on an Octa-Core processor with a MediaTek microprocessor and a Helio P35 (MT6765) chipset. It has a GPU from PowerVR called GE8320, and it's running Android 11.0, which is pretty new.

A MediaTek MT6765 Helio P35 CPU powers the smartphone with 4GB of RAM. Because of its lagging issues, this CPU is not considered a decent processor. This central processing unit is in the lower price range of cell phones. It is essential because the smartphone becomes sluggish while navigating the home screen. When numerous programs were open simultaneously, the smartphone became highly sluggish.

Special Features

While these were all the characteristics of the smartphone, the findings were a little unexpected for this "perfect on paper" smartphone when they were tested. Speaking of benefits, the phone is powered by Android 11.0, the most recent version. FunTouch has always been the operating system that Vivo integrates into its smartphones.

The smartphone is equipped with FunTouch version 11.1 at present. A new function of personalized modifications has been made possible by this feature. Additionally, the whole user interface (UI) has been completely updated. As the name of the operating system indicates, using the smartphone is made "fun" with the addition of new widgets that may be added to the home screen.

Benefits and Drawbacks

Another benefit of this smartphone is that Vivo considered usage by people of all ages and added a straightforward launcher to ensure that senior citizens can use the smartphone. Large icons for the many settings and a basic style make this option easy to use. Vivo's attention to senior citizens in a world where smartphone vendors concentrate on offering the most features, so congrats to Vivo.

The 3.5mm headphone connector on the bottom of the smartphone is still quite helpful even after all Bluetooth audio products have been released. There includes a Type-C quick charging port and a choice of a single speaker. The phone includes an inbuilt fingerprint scanner lock button on the side, which responds quickly and helps in protecting the data. The volume controls are also visible above the button.

These were all the benefits of the phone, but it also had several more performance-related drawbacks. The first issue discovered was the Vivo Y21's preinstalled Bloatware apps. Such applications are merely storage and performance drainers that provide no benefit.

Additionally, it was noted that there was a very significant delay between clicking on an application and it starting. When using social media programs like Snapchat and Instagram, the loading of filters sometimes takes a very long time. Additionally, it was observed that quick scrolling caused delays across the smartphone.


The Vivo Y21 phone has a large battery, making it a dependable solution for daily tasks. It is excellent for viewing movies and playing games because of its big screen and storage capacity. NFC, 5G, gyro-EIS sensors, and a reverse charging feature are all missing. The camera is okay but not standard, and the charger is quick but not excessively fast. The Vivo Y21 is a respectable option for anyone looking for a high-quality phone at a fair price.
