Description

Vivo Y71 may have the budget look, but it comes with a flair that few budget phones carry. Priced at Rs. 11,990, the Vivo Y71 is a decent model which tries to keep itself capable for budget use but fails to keep the price down.

 

However, the Vivo Y71 struggles to maintain its competitive edge in the competitive market that it arrives in. The phone is quite poor when it comes to processing and the lack of fingerprint scanner makes it quite bland. Overall, the Vivo Y71 is not a phone that could stay afloat in the competitive market, contending against the likes of Redmi.

Highlights

Vivo Y71 may not attract you from the first, but it does have some cool aspects to it. It has a few pros and cons:

Pros

  • The phone offers enough screen space to work with.
  • The Vivo Y71 has a sizable battery which can keep chugging without a problem.

Cons

  • The phone does not have a striking design and comes with a poor look.
  • No fingerprint scanner.
  • It comes with a dated processor that can provide a laggy performance.
  • The phone has a poor set of cameras with inaccurate colour capture and exposure.

Overall, the Vivo Y71 is a capable model but it falls short when it comes to a comparison with its competitors. Hence, it becomes a poor phone to recommend.

Expert Opinion

Vivo Y71 does look good neither does it bring any substance, making it a poor phone that cannot satisfy even a budget user with low expectations.

Display

Vivo Y71 has a 6-inch HD+ screen with a resolution of 720×1440 pixels. The pixel density is quite low at 269ppi but the aspect ratio of the phone is modern 18:9. However, many phones have moved on the 19:9 aspect ratio as well. The colours are not the sharpest on the display and the phone tends to have a bit of viewing angle issues. Despite the Full View Display, the thick chin and top makes the phone less immersive than any other phone. Display is not the strong point of Vivo Y71.

Design

Vivo Y71 comes with a bland look. It is a polycarbonate build which gives a metallic touch to it. The phone does not carry a fingerprint scanner on its back but it actually quite blank when your flip it over. The rear panel just carries the Vivo branding on it. The phone however remains quite light weight. On the right side, you get to find the volume rocker and power button. On the left, there is just a SIM tray. The bottom hosts the Micro-USB charger and a headphone jack. In the front, the phone does have a Full View Display with minimal bezels but it does have a thick top and chin lowering the screen size. It does not have a fingerprint scanner.

Performance

 

Vivo Y71 gets its power from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425. It is quite a dated chipset and it shows. The phone fails to perform properly when it is used for intensive tasks. Basic apps can run well without any lag. There is also a possibility that you can run multiple basic apps without letting any stutter take place. But, when it comes to intensive apps, the phone starts to struggle a lot. Plus, gaming performance on this phone is poor. You can run 2D games without a problem. However, graphics-intensive games will start to stutter and get unplayable with this phone. It comes with a RAM of 3GB. Face Unlock is a bit slow and unreliable.

Camera

The Vivo Y71 comes with a 13MP camera along with a 5MP front camera. In daylight, the rear camera shoots decent photos preserving the bright and sharp colours, though the exposure tends to go down. You can see certain areas as too bright and other too dim. Colour accuracy on the images are poor. Low-light shots are extremely grainy and hence, the quality plummets. However, at this range, low-light shots are not expected to be great. Regarding the front camera, the 5MP camera can click decent selfies and is sometimes better than the rear camera. The colours are bright and in this case, the exposure is quite accurate. It also has bokeh effect though it is not fantastic considering it uses software to engage the bokeh shots.

Battery

The Vivo Y71i gets its fuel from a 3360mAh battery. The battery on this phone is quite appreciable. Since the phone does not come with a Full HD display, the screen does not draw too much juice from the battery. Hence, the battery is able to hold its juice for a long time and stay active. So, it can stay alive for about a day without dying, but it is only possible in case of light use. Charging can take a bit of time since it does not have fast charging and charging time goes up to 2 hours.

Verdict

In general, the Vivo Y71 is not the best phone when compared with the other phones in the same price range. Firstly, it does not come with a fingerprint scanner which is a disappointment. On top of that, the phone struggles a lot with its performance especially in gaming. Games like PUBG tends to lag a lot. The phone does not offer good camera as well. While it does come at a low price, the Vivo Y71 sacrifices a lot on the specifications and hence, it is not a recommended set for average users.
