Over the years, smartphones have become one of the most popular gaming mediums in the world, as it’s more accessible and attainable than consoles and PCs. Wherever you are, you may easily enjoy mobile games using a device that’s already in your pocket.

Chances are, you love to play games casually. You find joy and relaxation in playing a round or two during your lunch break, after school, or while on your daily commute. We know that getting a gaming-centric smartphone can be daunting, especially when you consider the price tag. However, did you know that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a good casual gaming experience?

Enter the new vivo Y36, a smartphone with a price of only Php 12,999. Today, we’ll detail its features that will help power casual gamers.

Capable yet efficient 6nm chip from Qualcomm


The vivo Y36 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 octa-core processor clocked at 2.4GHz, paired with an Adreno 610 GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of expandable storage.

That sure is enough to handle casual games, no questions asked. The best part is, if you want to get a bit more competitive, it can handle games that are slightly more demanding as well. Call of Duty Mobile, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, and League of Legends: Wild Rift were all playable under Medium settings.

In addition, its 6nm process made it really efficient. In fact, it got one of the highest scores we got in our battery test as the Y36 was able to last for up to 19 hours and 16 minutes of screen-on time.

Fast charging for non-stop gaming


But in case you still manage to run out of juice in the middle of gaming, don’t worry as the vivo Y36 comes with 44W FlashCharge technology. You can plug it while gaming, or take a quick break and be right back on the game in no time.

In our test, a quick 15-minute charge already gained us 22% of charge. Fully charging its 5,000mAh battery took only about an hour.

Extra responsive 240Hz Gaming Touch Sample Rate


A fast processor is nothing if you have a slow display when gaming. Fortunately, the vivo Y36 has a high 90Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sample rate, which means that it’s extra responsive to your every touch when playing.

This is especially useful in fast-paced shooter games like Call of Duty Mobile and Farlight 84 — easily giving you that competitive advantage against players with a slower screen.

Multi-Turbo 5.5 for a maximized gaming experience


vivo has developed its Multi-Turbo 5.5 technology to ensure that the vivo Y36’s software and hardware are working at their full potential when you’re gaming or doing other heavy tasks.

The vivo Y36 also has an Ultra Game Mode, which comes with various features for a much better gaming experience.


It also has the Game Assistant, which is a sidebar you can easily access in any game. It lets you choose between Balanced Mode, Battery Saver mode, and BOOST. It also allows you to enable the Esports mode, use a voice changer, block notifications, and more.

These are the clever features that will let you play games casually — and even competitively — with the vivo Y36. Get it for only Php12,999 on all vivo concept stores and authorized dealers nationwide. It’s also available online at the brand’s website, official Lazada, Shopee, and TikTok stores.
