2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • 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] N/A
  • 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
