Vivo Y55S Specifications, Price and Features (Pros and Cons)

Vivo Y55S Features


2.5D Scratch Resistant Glass

One of the amazing features and reason you should be buying this handset is because of its scratch resistant screen. It will save you the stress of worrying about scratching or shattering your phone’s screen after a slight fall. The display of the Vivo Y55S has 2.5D scratch resistant layer on top, this protects the screen from minor scratches.

Good Selfie Camera

Though the Vivo Y55S was equipped with a mediocre 5MP camera, it has other features accompanying it that is quite impressive. Such features include a f/2.2 aperture and screen flash. This will serve as an added advantage for users that like clicking selfies.



No Fingerprint Scanner

This is certainly a thumbs down, because i am trying to imagine how could a brand that is trying to establish itself in the budget smartphone market, yet they are missing out on the basic features. The Vivo Y55S does not have fingerprint scanner and i believe it will chase a whole lot of potential buyers.

Comparatively Poor Performing Processor

The Vivo Y55S has an arguably poor performing processor compared to other devices within its price range. It has a Snapdragon 425 processor which is against some budget smartphones within the same price range that come with deca-core or even much advanced Snapdragon 6XX SoC onboard.
