9Vivo Y17

Like most of Vivo phones, the Vivo Y17 is also a camera-centric device. It comes with a triple camera setup at the back. The primary camera comes with a 13MP sensor, which is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor for a wide range of camera perspectives. Even on the front, there is a notable 20MP selfie snapper, which also doubles as an authenticating tool while unlocking the device via Face Unlock feature.

When it comes to the battery, there is a humongous 5000mAh battery. So it should last for a prolonged period. The presence of 128GB of onboard memory is duly notable here. However, the phone comes with a mediocre Helio P35 chipset, which is inferior than what’s its competitors are offering. Similar, the resolution of the display is merely HD+. So the contents on its screen don’t look as sharp.
