Back in the day, you have to spend a lot of money and get a flagship phone to have a complete smartphone experience that can keep up with your daily life. That’s not the case anymore now that we have capable midrange phones like the vivo Y35.
With its price of Php14,999, the vivo Y35 attempts to have everything that you may ever require in your active and modern lifestyle. No need to spend more just to get what you need.
Today, we’ll be detailing the key specs and features of the vivo Y35 that make it a great daily driver device that can keep up with you. Let’s get started.
Fast charging and large battery
If you’re living an active lifestyle, what you want is a smartphone that stays up for hours, even with intensive use. That’s something that Y35 can offer as vivo claims it can last for up to 7 hours of gaming and 14.3 hours of movie streaming.
Those figures are close to ours during our tests, even more when combined with light to moderate workloads.
But if that’s still not enough and you still ran out of juice before your busy day ends, don’t worry. The Y35 comes with a whopping 44W Fast Charge adapter in the box.
vivo claims that a quick 15-minute charge can already provide about 7 hours of video streaming. A full charge will only take about an hour, so you’re already up and running after a quick charge.
Having a reliable 5,000 mAh battery and fast charging really made our life easy. After a whole day of shooting pictures with the phone, messaging at MS Teams, and video conferencing on Zoom, we still have a little juice left at the end of the day. The quick charging then allowed us fully charge and unplug the device before sleeping.
Big storage and RAM
Do you like taking a lot of photos or videos? Do you like hoarding productivity apps or mobile games? You can store all that with the Y35’s big storage.
Unlike most devices in its price range, the vivo Y35 has 256GB of storage — that’s twice as much as what the others have.
If you still manage to fill that up, you can get yourself a microSD card slot and throw it in there. This smartphone can accommodate up to 1TB of external storage.
The device also boasts 8GB of RAM, which can be doubled by its +8GB Extended RAM feature. The extra boost ensures seamless multitasking, especially if you love running apps all at once and switching between them constantly.
A reliable processor makes for a reliable smartphone. Thankfully, the vivo Y35 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor. This power-efficient 6nm chipset is clocked at 2.4GHz, has eight cores, and comes with Adreno 610 graphics.
Compared to its predecessor, the Snapdragon 662, this latest chip offers 20% and 10% faster CPU and GPU performance, respectively.
Those figures proved themselves on our tests. Almost all productivity apps ran smoothly, and taking pictures was fast.
Also, thanks to the help of Multi Turbo 5.5, gaming experience was extra enjoyable on this device. Favorite titles like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Call of Duty Mobile were playable at smooth frame rates.
The vivo Y35 has a pixel-packed 50-megapixel main camera on the back. That second large ring holds the depth sensor, while the square cutout is for the macro lens. On the front, we have a sharp 16-megapixel selfie snapper.
It goes without saying that the main camera takes detailed and colorful photos. The front camera is also great, not just for selfies, but also for video calls during work meetings and online classes.
Moreover, the cameras are also great for taking low-light photos at night, shooting smooth videos with electronic image stabilization (EIS), and playing around with the video face beauty modes.
The large 50-megapixel sensor unsurprisingly takes really sharp images. What’s more, it captures light better, resulting to a good-looking image overall.
With the shots we took, we love how detailed they are, contrasty, and have the right splash of color without looking too saturated.
Sleek design and color options
All those interesting features are put inside an elegant-looking body. It comes in two colors: Agate Black if you want something a little discreet or Dawn Gold, like the one we’re taking a look at here.
More than the looks, the device is actually a bit durable, too. This one has an IP54 rating for being dust and waterproof and has been drop-tested 32,000 times.
It then has a sleek and ergonomic 2.5D design with symmetrical edges and corners. Paired with its 6.58-inch FHD+ display, you can comfortably binge watch your favorite shows or catch up on work while you’re on the go.
Those are the ways that the vivo Y35 can keep up with your modern lifestyle. Thinking of getting one? The device has an SRP of Php14,999 and will be available on these places:
What’s more, you can get it at Home Credit with installment plans from 6 to 18 months or on major credit cards for 6 to 12 months. The device will also come with free DITO SIM and TWS Voguard when you purchase it online until supplies last.
