Features, Performance, and Reviews for the vivo Y3s

The camera function of vivo Y3s

The vivo Y3s has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The vivo Y3s comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

Vivo Y3s's size

The vivo Y3s is 3.0 inches (76.8 mm) wide, 6.3 inches (159.4 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (8.9 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the vivo Y3s, it weighs about 190.5 oz (190.5 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the vivo Y3s, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Vivo Y3s's screen

The vivo Y3s has a 6.35 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the vivo Y3s's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of vivo Y3s

The vivo Y3s has an extremely high processing power of 2.3GHz+1.8GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The vivo Y3s has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The vivo Y3s has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Vivo Y3s's storage capacity

The vivo Y3s has 128GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the vivo Y3s is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of vivo Y3s

The vivo Y3s is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
