Are you a Gen Z looking for an affordable smartphone that can meet your needs? Whether you’re still in school or already enjoying a wonderful career, this latest offering from vivo might just fit the bill.

If you’re a Gen Z, or even a young millennial who’s looking for a capable phone for school or work, loves creating content, and wants to spend some downtime playing games, then you would really appreciate the all-new vivo Y36.


With a price of only Php12,999, the Y36 is already well-equipped to keep up with your creativity, style, and demands. But to give you a better idea, we’ve listed the 5 things you can do with the vivo Y36.

Snap and hoard a bunch of photos

From Instagram to TikTok, make sure the photos and videos you post are on point by using a great camera. The vivo Y36 has one with its 50-megapixel HD main shooter and Super Night Algorithm that lets you effortlessly capture moments even in low-light, with great clarity, vividness, and brightness.


The camera also has a 2x digital zoom feature, which you can easily enable via the button from the camera app. This lets you get closer to a subject without moving. And since it has a sharp sensor, the quality remains clean and intact.

It also has a 16-megapixel HD Front Portrait Camera that lets you take selfies with cool Portrait Light Effects and background blur with bokeh flares. You can also get creative with the multiple exposure mode.

The selfie camera lets you record 720p and 1080p videos at 30fps, while the main camera can shoot 1080p videos at 30fps, and 720p clips at 30fps or 60fps. Slow-mo shots are also possible with 720p resolution at 120fps — a feature that vloggers would really love.


Take all these photos and videos, hoard them, and cherish them forever without having to worry about running out of storage. With the Y36’s 256GB of memory, you can keep more than 25,000 photos and more than 500 hours of HD videos.

But in case you still run out of space, don’t stress yourself from deleting precious moments as the Y36 has a microSD card slot support that lets you expand the storage by up to 1TB — that’s 4x more than the original storage, which means more space to store all your food photos, groufies, and spontaneous moments.

Do all you want — all at once

Are you drafting a script for your next content when suddenly a great moment worth snapping happens? With the Y36’s generous 8GB of RAM, Turbo Memory Booster, and Extended RAM 3.0, you can open the camera, snap away, and go back to writing seamlessly.


vivo also included a feature called Interface Preserver on the Y36, which instantly wakes up background apps when you launch them so you can instantly see where you’ve left off.

Having robust RAM features and a large display, also means you can seamlessly run two apps side-by-side with the split screen mode. Watching a YouTube video while reading an article? That’s possible with the Y36.


Speaking of the display, the vivo Y36 has an enormous 6.64-inch display with an apt FHD+ pixel resolution — enough to provide a comfortable split-screen experience. Plus, it has a high 90Hz refresh rate to make news feed scrolling smooth, as well as 240Hz sampling rate for extra touch sensitivity when gaming.

Edit content on the fly

Want to publish a quick Story clip or a simple YouTube video without your laptop? the vivo Y36 can do that, too.


This device has a built-in video editor within the Gallery app, which you can access by selecting the photos and videos you want to use and tapping “Clip videos.” It lets you trim clips and photos, stitch them together, add frames, music, texts, themes, and filters. Once done, tap Export, and you’re ready to publish.

The seamless video editing is made possible by the Y36’s powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, generous 8GB of RAM, and vivo’s RAM efficiency features.

Just. Keep. Going.

The vivo Y36 has a 5,000mAh battery, which should be enough to last you for an entire day of catching up with friends on social media, taking photos at your favorite restaurant, vlogging your trips, and more. Plus, with the efficient 6nm Qualcomm processor, you can do more without requiring too much power.


But in case you run out of juice, just take a quick 30-minute break, plug the Y36’s 44W Fast Charger, and you’re back in the game with 70% of power.

There’s also vivo’s Super Charge Pump technology that enables up to 97% power conversion efficiency while keeping the temps down, so you don’t experience overheating while charging.

Look good, feel good!

A capable smartphone is nothing if it doesn’t look good. It should stand out while you’re using it, and match your style as you walk around with it.


Fortunately, the vivo Y36 comes with an exquisite look that’s been crafted with a 2.5D curved design, a slim body, a flat frame, and fluorite anti-glare glass that provides a premium look.

It comes in two distinct colors. The unit we got is the Glitter Aqua, which has a unique pattern that really shimmers as it reacts to light. But if you want to stay low-key, you can go with the Meteor Black colorway for a more subtle look.


Of course, there’s the distinct camera island with a glass-like texture and two large lenses hinting that the device means serious business. Clearly, the vivo Y36 will make you feel good as much as it can make you look good.

These are the things you can easily do with the all-new Gen Z phone, the vivo Y36, whether you’re a content creator, student, or a working professional. The best part is, you can get this budget-friendly smartphone without breaking the bank.


Score the vivo Y36 for a price of only Php12,999 starting July 15 on all vivo concept stores and kiosks nationwide, and online through vivo’s official website, Shopee, Lazada, and TikTok Shop. It’s available in two colorways: Glitter Aqua and Meteor Black.
