Vivo Y81 is a mid range smartphone with very large screen and mid level specifications. The Y81 features Vivo’s FullView screen with a notch at top. They are providing such big display due that the reduced bezels on all sides. The Vivo Y81 price in Nepal is Rs 24,190. This phone is a entertainment theater and meant for the young generation users.
Notches are now the new fashion or tech that sits between the bezel-less future and current tech. The Vivo Y81 is one such phone which features a big 6.22″ IPS LCD screen with notch. Its resolution is only 720×1520 which is quite low for screen of such big dimension. Good thing is that there is Gorilla Glass protection on top.
The phones does have a well curved back with camera module at top corner. Inside the phone, there is Mediatek Helios P22 Chipset which runs 2.0 GHz octa core processor. It pairs with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. There is provision for SD card up to 256 GB and also dual SIM. Vivo Y81 runs on 3260mAh battery which can easily run this phone for whole day with normal use.
The Vivo V81 houses 13 MP f/2.2 rear camera and 5 MP f/2.2 front camera. The maximum video resolution supported by back camera is 1920×1080. Front facing camera is equipped with AI Face Beauty Feature and also there is Portrait mode. Live Photo mode helps to capture 1.5 second long moment.
As there is no fingerprint scanner, Y81 uses facial unlock. In our view, this is not ideal way. In a crowded situation or outside, facial unlock can be a hassle. Fingerprint scanner is a very easy and secure way till now. With the big screen, Smart Spliut feature provides great way of multitasking as well.
Overall Vivo Y81 packs a good collection of mid level hardware. There are lots of camera features that are targeted towards youth such as AI Face Beauty and can be a selling point. Its screen can be entertaining for video and content consumers. This phone looks a good package on paper and can be taken as good mid range competitor. By the way Nepal is getting Vivo phones very soon after global unveil which is very good to see.
