Vivo Y91 is one of the rare budget smartphones of Vivo that can create a spark in the market. Priced at Rs. 8,990, the Vivo Y91 tries it stays afloat in the competitive budget market, both in terms of looks and hardware.

However, despite looking good, the Vivo Y91 does not pack quite a punch. It appears with a poor camera and abysmal performance. Despite having a large battery fueling the phone, Vivo has not provided an excellent display to match up the power-packing battery. The Vivo Y91 falls short on many counts and can be easily beaten by the likes of Xiaomi phones like Redmi 7.

About the Mobile Phone

Vivo Y91 may look good but does it pack the punch expected from it? It has a few pros and cons:

Pros

  • Vivo Y91 comes with a beautiful design and ergonomic button which looks quite decent, though it can be a bit flashy for some.
  • The battery of Vivo Y91 is an admirable one which fuels up the phone well enough for an entire day with moderate use.

Cons

  • Vivo Y91 comes with a poor display with poor colour accuracy and low saturation levels.
  • The Vivo Y91 does not have an optimized processor which can go slow with basic multitasking as well as gaming, due to ill-managed RAM.
  • The phone has poor cameras which do not capture plenty of details and turn out bland photos.

All in all, the Vivo Y91 has too many faults to it. It has a weak processor and camera, as well as a below-average display. It is not a recommended model, as there are better budget phones present in the market.

Vivo Y91 is one of the rare budget smartphones of Vivo that can create a spark in the market. Priced at Rs. 8,990, the Vivo Y91 tries it stays afloat in the competitive budget market, both in terms of looks and hardware.

However, despite looking good, the Vivo Y91 does not pack quite a punch. It appears with a poor camera and abysmal performance. Despite having a large battery fueling the phone, Vivo has not provided an excellent display to match up the power-packing battery. The Vivo Y91 falls short on many counts and can be easily beaten by the likes of Xiaomi phones like Redmi 7.

Vivo Y91 will capture your attention, especially with its beautiful outlook. It has a plastic unibody, and a two-tone color along with the polished and comfortable back makes it a brilliant phone to keep in your hands. However, it is not quite slim. It might seem a bit chunky in hand.

On the rear, it has the dual camera module placed vertically near the top left corner. The right side of the handset houses the volume rocker and power button. They are placed ergonomically, so you do not have to stretch your fingers too much. The build quality is quite sturdy. However, sometimes, the colors might look a little bit too flashy, especially given how the light falls on it.

Vivo Y91 has a 6.22-inch IPS LCD which arrives with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels. Along with that, it has a low pixel density of 270 ppi. A 2.5D curved glass covers the screen. The low pixel density does show itself. Despite having a 720p resolution, the colors do not appear too punchy.

It has low saturation levels. The viewing angles are okay, but in extreme angles, the screen gets a bit darker. The phone is moderately bright, but you cannot expect it to hold its brightness under harsh sunlight.

Vivo Y91 has a MediaTek MTK6762, which does not seem like the best processor. However, it can surprise the user with its below-average performance. It is paired with 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Multitasking with a few apps and switching between them caused the phone to stutter. The real problem started appearing with gaming.

High-end games like PUBG or Asphalt 9 refused to run on the device, crashing every time. Casual games can run smoothly, but you need to clear all the background apps running along with it. It shows that the phone does not have proper RAM management running under the hood.

Vivo Y91 arrives with a dual camera set –  a 13MP primary camera and a 2MP supporting camera. The pictures captured by the cameras are very mediocre. Even in daylight, the photos come out oversaturated and do not have all the details. It seems artificial. The HDR mode tends to brighten up the images. Even daylight HDR mode tends to be inconsistent.

However, in portrait mode, the phone does a better job. The edge detection is decent, and you can make out the outline of the subjects properly.

In the front, the notch holds the 8MP selfie camera. It does a moderately good job. The pictures come out vibrant and social-media worthy. Vivo Y91 seems to have concentrated more on the optimization of the pictures, but Huawei Y7 Prime does a better job in both camera and optimization.

Vivo Y91 has a massive 4030 mAh battery. As expected, the battery is capable of giving a fantastic runtime. The 720p display itself does not take up much fuel. As a result, with an hour of moderate use like playing with the camera, social media, texting and calling, the phone lost 11% battery.

It means roughly it can give about 8 hours and more screen-on time. With heavy usage like multitasking and gaming, along with video streaming for an hour, the phone lost around 16%, which is still acceptable.

Vivo Y91 is not the best phone of Vivo. It has a good design and a heart-stealing battery, but otherwise, it is a mess. It has a very mediocre performance, and the phone cameras do not produce the best quality photos with high-details.

The RAM management on this phone is abysmal. Plus, the Vivo Y91 has a passable display which does leave a lot to be asked for. If you are an average user, then you would ask for better performance at least, if not cameras. Hence, Vivo Y91 is not the phone recommended for any mid-range user.
