Vivo Y55s's camera specs

Vivo Y55s has a 13 MP main camera, which can take very high-resolution photos and videos. While you might feel a little dissatisfied when you need better resolution for landscape photography or want to print high-definition photographs, you will be satisfied most of the time.

Vivo Y55s's battery performance

The battery performance of the vivo Y55s is 2730 mAh, so it has a relatively large capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the vivo Y55s is good. At this amount, you will not feel stressed even if you are on the internet and Twitter for a long time.

However, some caution is necessary when watching movies or playing games for too long.

Vivo Y55s's CPU specs

With the 1.4GHz×4(Quad core) for processing power, the vivo Y55s has relatively high performance. Among all smartphones released to date, its performance is positioned between high level and middle class, but you won't feel any stress using most apps. For lighter 3D games you will almost always be able to play without complaint. And for 2D gaming you will probably feel hardly any stress.

With 3GB of RAM, the vivo Y55s has a sufficient amount. Very occasional cases of insufficient RAM do occur, but with this sort of amount of RAM, it will rarely be the cause of feeling any stress.

Evaluating the overall speed of operation of the vivo Y55s, it is a mid-range smartphone, and in everyday use operation doesn't feel very jumpy or jerky, but to enjoy games, movies and the like a grade higher smartphone is recommended.

Vivo Y55s's storage size

The data storage capacity of the vivo Y55s is 16GB, and while it is enough for taking photos, it might feel insufficient for those who often shoot videos or who install many games.

The vivo Y55s is compatible with SD cards, so it is possible to increase the capacity easily. Therefore, you probably do not need to be concerned with the storage capacity.
