2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Looks quite impressive, similar to the Vivo V5 Plus, which is more expensive - the faux-metal finish at the back feels solid
  • Feels good in the hand, and allows for fairly comfortable one-handed usage
  • The fingerprint scanner is placed on the front and is easy to reach
  • Decent display - the screen is bright, text appears crisp, and sunlight legibility is decent too
  • The iOS-styled Funtouch UI is quite iOS-like and has some useful software features like App Clone, split screen, one-handed mode, Smart Click, and Smart Motion gestures
  • Good performance with apps, games and multi-tasking
  • The highlight of the phone is the 20-megapixel front-facing camera with 'Moonlight Glow' front flash - the camera fares well in all kinds of situations - selfies taken in broad daylight or with sufficient light manage to show good amount of detail and proper colours - ones taken in low light have noise at the corners but are still better than what we get from other phones in the same price segment
  • The 13-megapixel rear camera is decent too - quick with focusing, and manages to capture some good detailed shots - the video recording at 1080p is good too
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones
  • Good call quality
  • Good battery life - the phone manages to last over a day with heavy usage - with light usage could make it last a day and a half before you need to recharge
  • Good charging speed too - takes slightly less than 90 minutes to charge fully from zero
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • A full-HD resolution would have been nicer for the display
  • The Funtouch UI packs in plenty of bloatware, some of which cant be uninstalled
  • 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
