. The design appears to be like elegant, however we might have preferred to see one thing completely different.
Having a White and Crown Gold color, the Y66’s entrance panel is dominated by a 5.5-inch HD show of 720×1280 pixel decision, full with 2.5D curved glass design.
The earpiece and selfie digital camera are positioned above the show, whereas the capacitive navigation keys are beneath it.
Beneath the non-removable again panel of the Vivo Y66 is a 3,000mAh battery. There is a 13MP rear digital camera (with LED flash) on the high left nook, whereas the Vivo branding is on the centre.
The proper fringe of the smartphone has the amount rocker and energy button, whereas the underside edge has the 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB charging port and speaker grille.

Total, we preferred the design of the Y66, even when it is just a little repetitive.
Transferring on to the show, we discovered it to be good. The colors are vivid and vibrant, and picture replica is obvious. Nonetheless, the show is reflective and daylight readability is not excellent. Viewing angles might have been higher too.
It is price noting that the Y66 retains a characteristic from the V5 – the attention safety mode that filters out Blue gentle from the show to scale back pressure.
Vivo Y66 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM. There’s additionally 32GB of inner storage, with help for microSD playing cards of as much as 256GB in measurement.
The smartphone runs Android 6.zero Marshmallow, skinned with the corporate’s FunTouch OS 3.zero. Having all customary connectivity choices like 4G VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, the Vivo Y66 is powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
The Y66 has all the usual software program tweaks that we have seen in earlier Vivo smartphones. There isn’t any app drawer and all apps are positioned on a number of homescreens. Fast settings aren’t built-in with the notification panel, and may be accessed by swiping up from the underside of the show. In essence, FunTouch OS is closely impressed from Apple’s iOS.
One other characteristic that the Y66 has is ‘Sensible Display screen Break up’. It is much like Android Nougat’s split-view multitasking performance and permits customers to run two apps on the similar time. We discovered it to be a nifty addition, particularly because the smartphone comes with older Marshmallow OS.
Throughout our testing, we noticed no lags within the gadget. Launching a number of apps and switching between them is straightforward. Multi-tabbed searching with Google Chrome works properly too.
One other plus level that we would like to say is that we did not face any heating problem with the Y66 – one thing that we see in a number of price range smartphones. Even after we used Maps for navigation for greater than an hour, the gadget didn’t warmth up.
Name high quality on the Vivo Y66 was good and remained clear, even in areas of weak reception.
Since Vivo focuses closely on the camera-related options of its smartphones, we had been keen to check out the Y66’s cameras. The smartphone’s 13MP rear digital camera takes good photographs in well-lit areas however the high quality does go down in case of images taken in darkish.
The 16MP selfie shooter is lots like Vivo V5’s, aside from the decrease decision. The digital camera app comes with a number of beautification options that can be utilized to do something from adjusting pores and skin tone to slimming the face.
Vivo Y66 comes with the corporate’s well-known ‘Moonlight Glow’ characteristic, which helps in taking selfies in dimly-lit areas. It robotically triggers in low-light circumstances. Whereas LED flash tends to make footage taken in darkish circumstances look unnaturally white, Moonlight Glow is softer. It brightens the face of the topic by including a pure glow.
However even then the digital camera high quality of the Vivo Y66 was good, it did not match as much as the V5. Then once more, each of those smartphones fall in several worth segments, so it is not precisely a good comparability.
We performed YouTube movies on the smartphone and the Y66 dealt with these properly, each on Wi-Fi and cellular knowledge. Audio high quality is nice as properly.
Coming to the 3,000mAh battery of the Y66, it lasted us a complete day with average utilization. It concerned utilizing social media, listening to music, watching movies and naturally, taking cellphone calls.
We additionally ran benchmarking checks on the gadget. Within the Geekbench 4 take a look at, the smartphone scored 478 in single core efficiency and 1958 in multi-core efficiency. In Antutu benchmarks, the Y66 scored 33424.
We might say we preferred the Vivo Y66. However at a worth of Rs 14,990, we had been anticipating extra options. Smartphones which are priced a lot lesser than the Y66 provide extra options similar to fingerprint sensors and Full HD shows. So except you are too keen on clicking selfies, we might counsel contemplating options similar to
