Vivo already revealed the Vivo Y17s smartphone in Bangladesh at the beginning of last month. But it was the 6/128 GB model priced at BDT 15,999. Now a new 4/128 GB model is available which is priced at BDT 14,499. This makes many consumers have another look at this gadget.
The difference is really that we have a 4 GB RAM instead of 6 GB. Everything else remains the same. Considering that, the price is more inviting. Some of the best performance official phones around 15K budget right now are Tecno Spark 10 Pro, Infinix Hot 30 and Xiaomi Redmi 12C. Tecno and Infinix are giving you a slightly faster Helio G88 chipset for an extra 500 Taka. Xiaomi is giving you the same Helio G85 chipset but with 6 GB RAM at a 500 Taka lower price. So, Vivo has indeed picked the price very sensibly.
But Vivo Y17s comes with an HD+ waterdrop notch screen with 60Hz refresh rate. Tecno and Infinix are offering Full HD+ 90Hz punch-hole displays which are far superior. Vivo camera, on the other hand, is quite impressive and we also like the design. Despite being HD+ quality, the screen provides very vivid color tones. Other than that, the Funtouch UI is very clean and smooth, therefore, it will be very enjoyable to use it. There are a lot of Vivo fans out there as well. It comes down to you at the end what you want to choose among these devices.
