Vivo Y90 Overview

The front features a tear-drop notch on the top which houses a selfie camera. The screen is considerably big and provides an HD+ FullView display. At the rear, this smartphone adopts a curved edge design featuring an 8MP single camera. In the smartphone world where every phone is opting to at-least a double camera; getting an average 8MP single camera seems to be a pretty daring move from Vivo.

Further, there is no fingerprint scanner on this phone. Vivo has been bold enough to feature a face recognition feature to unlock this phone. However, considering the price and other specs of the phone, it is not far-fetched to speculate that most of the phone’s users will reside in other screen unlocking techniques.

Talking about the hardware part, the phone is powered by Helio A22 SoC; which can be considered a below-average processor in 2019. This processor is even incomparable to the Snapdragon 450. However, the phone’s powerhouse is a 4030 mAh battery, which will certainly provide a lot of screen time for an average user.

The phone has 2 GB of RAM and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. The storage on board is 32 GB with an option to expand it further to 256GB via microSD card.

That’s great and all but will it be effective enough to outshine the Redmi 8A or the recent Nokia 2.3? It’s a losing battle if you ask me.
