2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Stylish, slick, premium looks (looks more expensive than it is), good build quality
  • The grip is comfortable enough to operate the phone with one hand
  • The front is modern with a 6.35-inch HD+ IPS display that offers 89 per cent screen-to-body ratio, and a dewdrop notch
  • Both the fingerprint scanner, and face unlock are quick
  • Decent 6.35-inch HD+ IPS display - good for watching videos and consuming content
  • Very good performance for the price category with a powerful Snapdragon 665 at the core - it's capable enough for smooth performance not just in daily use, but high-end games like PUBG
  • Decent rear and front camera performance, overall, for the price bracket (not best in class though)
  • There is a three-camera setup on Vivo U10's back panel, that includes a primary 13MP sensor, 8MP wide-angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor
  • You get fairly good and clear pictures in daylight
  • Portrait mode works quite well too
  • Excellent battery life with a large 5000mAh battery - you should get a comfortable 2 days of use
  • Fast charging support - you can recharge your phone's battery to about 80% in just one hour, which is quite good
  • The U10 is an overall excellent device from Vivo for the 10k price bracket, and looks capable enough to give a fight to the Redmis and Realmes of the world

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Somewhat bulky and boxy - it's a handful at 8.92mm thick and 190.5g in weight
  • The glossy back finish attracts scratches and fingerprints
  • Vivo's Funtouch UI is one of the heavier Android skins around, and packs plenty of bloatware - which means that if you like your phones simple and fuss-free, it's not the best option around
  • Low light performance is average (there is plenty of noise)

  2. Performance, cameras, and battery life are the three parameters that matter the most for a budget smartphone and the Vivo U10 does good on all three of them....it should not have a problem competing with Redmi and Realme phones in the budget segment

  3. Not the best package in this price bracket...there are more compelling alternatives such as the Redmi Note 8 smartphone
