In its native Chinese market, Vivo continues to gradually release inexpensive and almost identical smartphones.
In the Vivo branded Chinese store (without vpn, itdoes not open) a smartphone called Vivo Y33s went on sale, which I will refer to as Vivo Y33s 5G for clarity. Because we already have one Vivo Y33s - it was announced in the summer of 2021 in Indonesia and India, and last month it reached Russia. Now here I am, swearing without malice, urgently renaming it to Vivo Y33s 4G.
Vivo Y33s 5G
I’ll say right away that Vivo Y33s 5G and Vivo Y33s 4G have few features in common, it makes no sense to compare them. Fortunately, the newcomer has more than enough close relatives.
Vivo Y33s 5G is very similar to three other “Chinese” at once:
- Vivo Y31s 5G Standard Edition
- Vivo Y54s 5G
- Realme V11 5G
Vivo Y31s 5G Standard Edition
Realme V11 5G
Slightly different appearance, colors, variations in the amount of memory. Plus, the shell is finally made based on Android 12, not Android 11. But, in general, this is, of course, the same device.
Briefly about the characteristics.
Chipset MediaTek Dimensity 700, so in AnTuTu we are waiting for three hundred thousand points. Solid average.
4, 6 or 8 GB of RAM, strictly 128 GB of permanent memory. There is support for memory cards.
A very modest screen. The resolution is only 720 × 1600, which gives 270 ppi with a 6.51 ″ diagonal. There is no increased refresh rate.
The battery is great. 5000 mAh. Moderately fast charging - 18W
The cameras are even more modest than the screen. Front camera 8 MP. On the back there is a double module 13 + 2 MP.
Side fingerprint scanner. 5G, Type-C and dual band Wi-Fi are available. There is no NFC module.
LTE frequencies are “not ours” - there is no Band 7 or Band 20.
Prices are quite humane. ¥1299 (₽19300, $206), ¥1399 (₽20700, $222) and ¥1599 (₽23700, $253) for the 4+128, 6+128 and 8+128 GB versions respectively.
