Vivo’s Y-series consists of mid-range smartphones that mostly get mixed reactions from the audience and Vivo Y17 is no different. It was among the first device in Nepal to flaunt a triple camera setup but what else does it have to offer? Let’s check out the complete specs along with the price and availability of Vivo Y17 in Nepal.
Vivo Y17 Overview
The most exciting part about this lower-mid-range phone is that it packs triple cameras! Now, Vivo branded this as a budget phone with triple cameras. But with a price tag of Rs. 31,490, that isn’t exactly budget territory. Yet, it doesn’t belong in the mid-range segment either.
Still, triple cameras for this price seem great, don’t they? There are barely any other phones at this price with triple cameras. Also, the only other Vivo phones that sport triple cameras are the Vivo V15 and the Vivo V15 Pro, which cost upward of Rs.40,000. Its triple camera setup comprises of a 13 MP primary camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor – which, seems like the standard for triple cameras.
However, The Y17 is and looks like a budget phone from the outside, though. You get a big 6.35″ IPS LCD display but only has HD+ resolution though. Also, the aspect ratio is a bit strange at 19.3:9. The internals seems to be good, with 4 GB RAM, and 128 GB storage. There’s even a massive 5000 mAh battery, which, features 18-Watt Fast Charging. Everything seems to be cool, except for the processor, which is the Helio P35! And that is so much like an under-kill because you get the Snapdragon 660 for lesser prices! This chipset, cannot be, compared to the Snapdragon 660, in any way.
