    One look at the Vivo Y91i and the first thing that will catch your attention is the big notch-display. The 6.22-inch display has a screen resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. It runs on Android v8.1 (Oreo) OS with Funtouch OS 4.5 skin on top. For the processor, it gets an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 (MTK 6762R) clocked at 2GHz, coupled with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU for enhanced graphical performance.

    The phone has 2GB RAM but with two internal storage variants – 16GB and 32GB. You can expand the memory up to 256GB using a microSD card. It comes with dual-SIM support (GSM and GSM). So, you can use two accepts nano-SIM cards. Just like the Vivo Y93, it uses a 4030 mAh battery. On the rear, you get a 13MP camera with LED flash, and on the front, there’s a 5MP selfie camera.

    The Vivo Y91i has useful sensors, including Ambient Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, and Gyroscope. Sadly, the Fingerprint Sensor is missing. It is available in two colour variants – Ocean Blue and Fusion Black.

    In India, the price of the Vivo Y91i starts at Rs. 7,990.

    About the Mobile Phone

    Pros:

    • It has a large 6.22 –inch HD+ touchscreen with a water drop notch that promises an exceptional viewing experience.
    • It has the latest Fun touch OS based on Android v8.1 (Oreo).
    • It has a massive 4030 mAh battery that sustains for long hours of usage.

    Cons:

    • It has no Fingerprint Sensor.
    • It has no Gorilla Glass protection.
    • It has only 2GB RAM.
    • The camera performance is disappointing.

    Considering the price range, the Vivo Y91i looks like a good deal, with a tall and slim body and bid notch display. The 4030mAh battery is a bonus. However, 2GB RAM is too limiting to offer a completely lag-free experience.

    One look at the Vivo Y91i and the first thing that will catch your attention is the big notch-display. The 6.22-inch display has a screen resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. It runs on Android v8.1 (Oreo) OS with Funtouch OS 4.5 skin on top. For the processor, it gets an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 (MTK 6762R) clocked at 2GHz, coupled with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU for enhanced graphical performance.

    The phone has 2GB RAM but with two internal storage variants – 16GB and 32GB. You can expand the memory up to 256GB using a microSD card. It comes with dual-SIM support (GSM and GSM). So, you can use two accepts nano-SIM cards. Just like the Vivo Y93, it uses a 4030 mAh battery. On the rear, you get a 13MP camera with LED flash, and on the front, there’s a 5MP selfie camera.

    The Vivo Y91i has useful sensors, including Ambient Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, and Gyroscope. Sadly, the Fingerprint Sensor is missing. It is available in two colour variants – Ocean Blue and Fusion Black.

    In India, the price of the Vivo Y91i starts at Rs. 7,990.

    The design of the Vivo Y91i is neat and simple. It sports a waterdrop notch display with minimal bezels on the sides and a small chin at the bottom. The notch is minimally intrusive and won’t hamper your viewing experience. The polycarbonate back panel is glossy with rounded corners for a comfortable grip. The glossy and neat design imparts a classy look to the phone.

    At the back, you will find the 13MP camera placed on the top left corner with an LED flash just below it. As we mentioned earlier, there is no Fingerprint Sensor.

    On the right side lie the volume rockers and the power button, and on the left, you can see the dual-SIM tray. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro USB port, and a speaker grille at the bottom.

    The Vivo Y91i sports a 6.22-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with HD+ Halo FullView display. It has a screen resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels with a pixel density of 270 PPI. So, you know that it will offer a premium viewing experience. The colour reproduction is decent, and it is never too bright to hurt your eyes. Also, the viewing angles are great. As for outdoor legibility, you won’t face any problem in using the phone under the sun.

    An octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 SoC clocked at 2GHz powers the Vivo Y91i. To enhance the graphical side of things, it gets a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. However, the limitation here is that it only offers 2GB RAM. The latest Fun touch 4.5 OS seems to have improved. For routine tasks like calling, texting, social media browsing, etc., you will not face any hiccups with the Vivo Y91i.

    You can easily navigate and switch between apps and even multitask smoothly. The real problem starts when you perform graphics-intensive tasks like gaming. While the phone can handle lightweight games, playing games like PUBG and Asphalt will surely disappoint you.

    The phone gets a 13MP primary shooter (f/2.2 aperture) at the back and a 5MP selfie camera (f/1.8 aperture) on the front. The rear camera packs options like Face Beauty, Slow Motion, Time Lapse, Panorama, Portrait Mode, Professional Mode, and Palm Capture. While it can take some good and focused shots in the daylight, the camera performance tends to get a little inconsistent at times. In low-light conditions, the captured images display a significant amount of noise that makes them look grainy and blurry. Most of the photos taken in dimly-lit settings lack details. As for the front camera, it does take decent selfies, provided you have a steady hand. The front camera also has features like Face Beauty, Palm Capture, and Voice Control.

    The selfies look washed out and hazy in low-light conditions. Considering the camera performance, it seems like Vivo could have put in a little more effort to improve the cameras in its entry-level phones.

    With the Vivo Y91i, you get a massive 4030mAh battery that can easily last an entire day for normal to average usage. For instance, using the phone only to perform routine tasks will ensure that the battery pulls through a full day and more on a single charge. However, you will see the battery percentage dropping faster than usual when you’re playing games or video streaming for prolonged hours. It also does not have fast charging support.

    The phone has all the essential connectivity options like Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth v5.0, micro USB port, dual-SIM, FM Radio, GPS, OTG, and 2G/3G/4G support.

    Overall, the Vivo Y91i appears to be a decent entry-level smartphone without any flashy promises. The two greatest strengths of this phone are its immersive display and excellent battery backup. It can be an excellent option for those looking for a daily driver on a budget. The cameras and the processor seem a bit outdated compared to other phones under the 10k segment. Gamers should stay away.
