Vivo seems to be on a roll! Launching phones after phones after phones… but all in the budget category. Shortly after launching the Vivo Y17 with triple cameras, we saw the Vivo Y12! And not many days after that, we saw the Vivo Y15 creating a buzz. After hovering around the international market for a while and receiving a fair bit of spotlight, the Vivo Y15 has finally made its way to Nepal.
The Vivo Y15 is not very different from its other siblings. In fact, if you look at the Y17, Y15, and Y12 at once, you might not even know the difference! All of these have the same design, form factor and the same 6.35″ display with a notch up front. The display is of HD+ resolution, which may not look impressive.
But the most impressive thing about this is the triple cameras it packs at the back. Yes, I said the same thing for the Y17, and also for the Y12. But it’s not every day that you get three cameras on a budget phone. The triple camera setup on this one is the same as the other two as well – a 13 MP primary camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide lens and a 2 MP depth sensor. In addition, there’s a nice 16 MP selfie camera up front. And this is the only thing that differentiates it from the other siblings (for the most part). Actually, this is the only part differentiating it from the Y12 – as the Y12 has an 8 MP selfie camera while keeping all other aspects the same.
Under the hood, this phone runs on the Helio P22 chipset, which, of course, is a pretty modest smartphone. And for a budget category phone, this might be okay. Also, there’s a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. In addition, there’s a huge 5000 mAh battery in it. And combined with the HD+ screen, the battery should last for over 2 days easily. But there is no mention of any kind of Fast Charging, though.

Vivo Y15 Price Price in Nepal and Availability
Talking about the cost, the phone is tagged along with a price tag of Rs. 26,290. And it is quite expensive when compared with international pricing. Nonetheless, you get some discounts while visiting retail stores.
At its price, the Vivo Y15 is the cheapest phone to feature triple camera setup at the back. But are the other features good enough to make it worth of the purchase? Drop your thoughts in the comments.
