Brands like Vivo are seen as a real boon to smartphone users who were present during the early smartphone days. Before Chinese brands hit the market, at least in India, the options available were Nokia and Samsung. With a monopoly in the market, phones were exorbitantly priced. Two decades ago, phones were typically for calling and sending really short messages. They didn’t even have colour displays, let alone cameras.
The only game people had on their phones was a game called Snake, and a video game with AI on a phone was unheard of. The internet on phones was unheard of. And for almost a decade to follow, even as cameras, colour display and internet became part of phones, pricing made mobile phones inaccessible to most. The general consensus was that expensive was good, more expensive was better, exorbitant was really good, and anything cheap was not to be trusted.
Now that you’ve had a clear insight into how smartphone pricing worked earlier, you might be in a better position to appreciate the first of our five reasons to buy a Vivo mobile phone.
Vivo will always price its smartphones competitively. It perhaps helps the buyer’s case that Vivo has a truckload of other Chinese competitors all vying for its market share. You can get a well-functioning Vivo phone with basic features for as low as Rs. 6500 rupees. And then at the other end of the spectrum, for users who have the spending power, there is the Vivo X50 priced at almost Rs. 50,000. Vivo has something for every pocket size, and it offers value for money to all price segments.
2. High resolution cameras
Let us take the example of a Vivo smartphone model. The Vivo Y20s comes with a triple-rear camera array, with a configuration of 13 MP + 2MP + 2MP, and is priced at just Rs. 15,000. The Vivo Y20s also has an 8MP front camera.
However, if buyers have a few thousands more to spare, at about Rs. 19,000, they can have the trendy 48MP quad-rear camera set-up with the Vivo V17. Meanwhile, a premium edition Vivo mobile like the Vivo X50 packs in a higher resolution combination of cameras along with its 48MP main camera, and a 32MP front camera, which let you take stunning images with exceptional clarity.
3. Powerful processors
It is no surprise that Vivo X50 comes with the celebrated Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G octa-core processor. However, it inspires loyalty among buyers to note that the mid-range Vivo V17 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE processor, and that the budget-to-midrange Vivo Y20s runs on the Qualcomm SM4250 octa core processor.
4. Big batteries
Given that we are pretty much glued to our phones during all our waking hours, it is perhaps time that we got phones in the form of tiny circular discs fitted into our temples, as showcased by a popular TV series. But until that comes to pass, big batteries that last all day or more are absolutely essential. The three phones we’ve been looking at in this discussion clearly adhere to this requirement from buyers.
- The Vivo Y20s, despite its price, comes with a big 5000 mAh battery.
- Meanwhile, the Vivo Y17 comes with a 4500 mAh battery and 18W fast charging.
- The pricey Vivo X50 comes with a 4200 mAh battery and 65 watt super fast dart charging.
5. Made in India
Vivo only has a handful — four as per its website — smartphone manufacturing facilities. Out of these, one facility has been established in Noida. Vivo says that all phones sold in India are manufactured at this facility, thus creating employment opportunities in the country.
