vivo Y51 Review

While manufacturers across the world are trying to win over the consumer with expensive smartphones with exciting features, Vivo is paying attention to its fans with a different approach. It attracts their attention with quality, performance and stylish design at a relatively low price. It is these qualities that characterize the company's smartphones.

Today we will look at the Vivo y51 model, which belongs to the budget class. It is suitable for users who are not excited about expensive brands. For them, the most important thing is that the device works, displays the necessary content well and is convenient to operate. In other words, Vivo y51 meets these conditions.


The Vivo y51 can be seen in three colours - white, blue and black. On the rear panel, the rear camera is positioned, next to which the flash is visible. The texture of the cover is interesting, there is a gradient of colors that provokes interest. The dimensions of the Vivo y51 are compact, and its weight is under 160 grams. You can carry it comfortably in your shirt or pants pocket.


At a time when consumers are highly excited about screen performance, the Vivo y51 offers an enviable diagonal at a low price. The device features a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The screen occupies under 84% of the front panel area, which is a typical result for this class of phones.

The screen aspect ratio is slightly unusual at 19.9:9. The resolution suggests that you won't experience any discomfort reading information from the screen. With such a large display, using any content is a pleasure. You can watch videos, read websites, process work documents, conduct correspondence and so on.


At the heart of the performance of this mobile device lies an entry-level chipset - the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. When it was introduced in the market, it showed good performance. It runs on a processor with four computing cores clocked at 2 GHz and another four at 1.8 GHz. The graphics are handled by an Adreno 610 co-processor, which provides the phone's display with a quality picture, both when watching movies and while playing games.

The Vivo y51's performance is supported by 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The latter can be expanded using a memory card if needed.

At the factory, the Vivo y51 runs Android 10 operating system and the company's Funtouch 10 interface. The system is well optimized so that the user can enjoy easy customization of desired settings.


To cater to the fashion of constantly capturing important moments of everyday life, Vivo has provided its smartphone with a quad rear camera. It consists of a 48 MP main module that is wide-angle. It is complemented by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module, a 2-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth measurement sensor.

With the macro module, you'll study objects around you in detail. This is a wonderful way to look at nature and life from a different angle.

To enjoy better quality footage, the Vivo y51 features a rear camera with LED flash and typical shooting modes. With it, you can record video at 1080 pixels resolution at 30 frames per second.

A single 16-megapixel camera is responsible for selfie shots. It is wide-angle and will accommodate more subjects in a single frame. It can record videos at 1080 pixels resolution.

The Vivo y51 doesn't have the pretense of offering you flagship-level photo capabilities. However, the device provides a basic set of cameras that you can try to achieve high quality photos and videos.

Autonomous operation

Vivo y51 has a battery capacity of 5000 mAh. It is non-removable and lithium polymer. Under standard daily usage, you can count on up to 2 days of autonomous operation. Of course, more active use without interruption - for example, watching videos, surfing the web or playing games will discharge the charge in just a few hours. To enjoy a recharged device faster, Vivo has provided a fast recharge charger. It is rated at 18W.


Looking at all the features of Vivo y51, you will make sure that its price is really good. You get in return a smartphone with a set of features that are in demand in today's market. You can enjoy a quality picture, play common games and watch movies. For more sophisticated tasks, check out the more expensive models on the market. A fingerprint scanner is built into its display.
