- 10 hours of Battery Talk Time
- Overpriced according to its low features

Overall this smartphone specially built for budget users who are new to the Android interface and are looking for an average performing, yet sturdily built the phone.

Powered by a 1.3GHz Quad-Core processor with 1GB RAM and running on Android 5.1 operating system it has a battery backup of 1900 mAh.

The Vivo Y15S measures 130.40 x 65.80 x 8.60mm and weighs 130.00 grams making it super light and handy in its stature. Available in Black and White colours, this phone lacks any distinctiveness in its plastic-clad pointy edged design.
The Y15S comes with a 4.5-inch display packed into a rather compact form factor having a 64.1% screen to body ratio. The device has the pixel density of 218 PPI and has a resolution of 854×480 pixels, making the images and the text reasonably challenging to read most of the times.
This smartphone is powered by a 1.3 GHz, Quad Core Cortex A-7 processor. The CPU is accompanied by a Mali-400MP2 GPU that ensures that the graphics operations run smooth with an Android v5.1 (Lollipop) operating system. But because of its low-end build, this smartphone can work average for everyday usage and can suffer severe lags when graphics are accessed via this device.

It also features Geo tagging, Panorama, Touch to focus and is capable for Full HD video recording 1080p @ 30fps primarily. Honestly, it’s a passable camera with acceptable image qualities which can be easily surpassed in its standards by all of the recent phones in the market at this price range.
The Y25S is powered by a 1,900 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery which is powerful enough to keep the smartphone working throughout a fairly explicit day of use. It can provide 10 hours of talk time on 2G and 8 hours on 3G.
