2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Decent looking unibody design with gently rounded corners and minimal physical buttons
  • At 7.6mm, the Vivo Y66 is sleek and given its plastic architecture is also lightweight
  • Nice, vibrant display, with good viewing angles - though display resolution could have been better
  • FunTouch UI is very iOS-like and works well, with pretty intuitive navigation
  • Good front camera - captures natural colours, with good details, and also has a "Moonlight Glow" LED flash, that works decently well
  • Decent battery life - lasts through the average day for a light or moderate user
  • Good build quality
  • Sleek metal unibody design with a premium look and feel
  • The fingerprint scanner integrated in the home button works great
  • The display is bright, and has vivid colours and slim bezels
  • Decent UI overlay over Android - includes features like split screen, one hand mode, long screenshot, app clone - there are a few bloatware apps preloaded but all of them can be uninstalled if required
  • Day to day performance is fairly smooth
  • Very good front camera - comes with a number of features: group selfie mode, face beauty mode, portrait bokeh and live photo (records a few seconds of video along with the photo) - there is also an LED in front that can be used as a flash or fill light for video - overall image quality from the front camera is great — in daylight as well as indoors
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the full day
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • While the design is decent looking the build is not metal, something that most phones in this price range now provide - so that's a negative in the build quality department
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • While performance is decent if you are a light to an average user, it is certainly not up to the level of competing devices such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Lenovo P2, Moto G5 Plus, and Nubia Z11 Mini S
  • Average rear camera, with average level of details, and no image stabilisation
  • Screen resolution could have been better
  • The performance is decent in regular use and simple games, but there are certainly phones with better chipsets in this price bracket
  • Rear camera performance is decent in daylight with sharp details and rich colours, but indoors the images don’t have much detail and low light images have lots of noise
  • Video recording from the rear camera is limited to 1080p resolution only (some other phones in this price bracket now offer 4K resolution)
  • Overall, the Vivo Y69 is a phone meant only for the selfie loving crowd (otherwise there are many overall better phones), and even within that segment it has tough competition from the likes of Gionee A1
