An examination of the advantages and disadvantages of the specs and capabilities of the vivo Y12a. How highly does it rate in terms of accessibility and performance in comparison with other smartphone? We reviewed the vivo Y12a to see if it was a good buy.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the vivo Y12a

Vivo Y12a's size

The vivo Y12a is 3.00394inches (76.3mm) wide, 6.5inches (164.4mm) tall, and 0.33inches (8.4mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the vivo Y12a, it weighs about 6.7oz (191g). 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 Y12a, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Vivo Y12a's screen

The vivo Y12a has a 6.51 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 Y12a'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 Y12a

The 1.95GHz+1.45GHz×8(OctaCore) processing speed of the vivo Y12a is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The vivo Y12a has 3GB 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 Y12a 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 Y12a's storage capacity

The vivo Y12a has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the vivo Y12a 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.

The camera function of vivo Y12a

The vivo Y12a 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 Y12a 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.

Overall assessment of vivo Y12a

The vivo Y12a is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
