The budget category is getting very interesting as many companies are addressing it. Vivo has launched the new Y91C in Nepal. It is a budget range phone with a huge battery and screen. The official Vivo Y91C price in Nepal is Rs 16,790. This is under the Rs 20,000 mark and sits in a highly competitive region. Y91C gives a good challenge with its giant 4030 mAh battery.
Very few phones have such a big battery to offer. On top of that, there is a big 6.22″ screen. This is a good combo but we have to talk about the hardware that powers it. Vivo Y91C come with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. It is close to the new standard specs for this range. As we told, it is a highly competitive segment where everyone is putting their best value product.
Vivo is approaching this tier with MediaTek processor and AI features for the camera. The company has priced it lower than phones of other companies to get some edge. First, let us list out the hardware specs of the phone to have a better look.
Vivo Y91C Specifications
- 6.22″ LCD screen with dewdrop notch
- 720×1520 screen resolution
- Mediatek MT6762R chipset with 2 GHz 8 core processor
- 2 GB RAM and 32 GB onboard storage with SD card support
- 4030 mAh battery
- 13 MP f/2.2 back side camera
- 5 MP f/1.8 selfie camera on front side
The Y91C is running 2 GHz octa-core processor with 2 GB RAM. It is an entry-level processor and memory configuration. This can perform basic and some mid-level tasks. There is no fingerprint scanner on this phone and it only has face unlock. Many companies are using this approach to cut corners for budget range phones and Vivo is also doing the same.
On the display side, there is 6.22″ screen with a small notch at top. It has FHD+ resolution and Vivo is calling it Halo Fullview display. The screen is good and big for the price being. HD+ resolution is minimum for such large screens and it is being maintained here. In terms of design, Vivo V91C has gradient color at back. People love these beautiful back but the only way to show them is having a transparent case. We always suggest all smartphone users get a strong safe case for their phones.
Vivo is using a big screen and they are pairing a bigger 4030 mAh battery with it. This is a good thing and media consumers can enjoy movies, videos in big real estate. In terms of performance, there is octa-core processor with 2 GB RAM. People these days demand a bit higher memory in their phone. Camera wise there is a single 13 MP sensor at the back which is good on paper and should work well for most users. In reality, people now demand dual cameras for portrait effects.
Vivo is taking help of software and AI integration to achieve better photo results. They are using. For the sensor, there is virtual gyrosensor and E-compass in addition to other basic sensors. In our view, Vivo Y91C looks like a basic phone with big display and battery that can be used for media consumption and daily use. It would have been better if it had higher memory and dual camera. We know the price would have been higher but another variant with such specs would have been better suited for under Rs 20,000 market. People in Nepal are alright with spending a bit more to get better value products.
