vivo Y52 5G review

No manufacturer can create the perfect model when it belongs to the low or medium price range, but at least one can try. For this, it is necessary to seek a balance between features and design without significantly affecting the price. An interesting attempt in this direction is the Vivo Y52 5G model, which was presented in the spring of 2021. It features a large IPS screen and photographic capabilities worthy of the budget class.

Among its advantages are also performance, average autonomy and a well-chosen set of cameras.

The look of the Vivo Y52 5G is impressive. The rear panel is very similar to expensive flagships and the colors are attractive. The layout of the three-camera unit complements this concept. But the comfort of the user is enhanced by the dimensions of the housing and the frameless screen. The fingerprint scanner is conveniently located on the page.

Vivo Y52 5G can be encountered on the market in black and blue. The casing is pleasant to touch, it doesn't slip in your hands though it is made of cheap plastic.

On the front we find the large screen, which is surrounded by relatively thick bezels. The old-fashioned selfie camera is built into a drop-shaped notch.


The Vivo Y52 5G features a quality and bright 6.58-inch IPS screen. Among its merits are a clear picture at a resolution of 2408 by 1080 pixels. The brightness and contrast are on par. The pixel density per inch is satisfactory. There is no increased image frequency, but this is not determinant of a good overall score.

The aspect ratio of the screen is standard by 2021 - 20:9. It occupies almost 85% of the front of the Vivo Y52 5G, which is a high indicator.


At the heart of the Vivo Y52 5G lies a Mediatek Dimensity 700 processor, which supports 5G networks and is both performance and power efficient. You might want to keep it in mind if you love gaming. With minimal graphics settings, you can afford to play even more resource-intensive games. Here, the graphics are assigned to the Mali-G57 MC2.

RAM is 4 GB and storage is 128 GB. The manufacturer has provided a memory card slot, which solves the problem of running out of free space. You have the freedom to accumulate photos and videos.

Vivo Y52 5G runs on Android 11 operating system and the company's Funtouch 11.1.


The photographic capabilities of the Vivo Y52 5G are decent. It is endowed with a triple rear camera, the main module of which is a 48-megapixel one. It is wide-angle and has an f/1.8 aperture. It is complemented by an auxiliary 2-megapixel sensor, whose role is to take fantastic macro shots. Another 2-megapixel sensor provides the bokeh effect.

In daylight with the rear camera, you'll take quality photos - with realistic colours and lots of detail. The noise cancellation system handles evening shots just fine. You can use the LED flash to compensate for the lack of ambient light. Standard shooting modes are also at your disposal. You can always use an additional app to edit the shots and make them more attractive and fashionable.

The front camera of the Vivo Y52 5G is single and wide-angle. It is an 8-megapixel module with f/2.0 aperture. It handles selfies decently. Good viewing angles allow you to fit more of your friends or subjects in one frame.

In terms of videos, you can shoot ones at 1080 pixels resolution at a maximum of 30 frames per second.

Autonomous operation

Vivo Y52 5G is equipped with a non-removable battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. This benchmark gives hope for a remarkable autonomous work at the level of 10-11 hours with active screen time. If you use the smartphone more economically, you can have a charge for a day and even more.

The manufacturer has provided 18W fast battery charging technology. It may not be much, but it's still something. No wireless or reverse charging is provided. You can use the sleep time to recharge your smartphone to 100%.


Vivo Y52 5G has a lot of competitors in the market. Among its cons is the absence of an NFC chip for contactless payments. Many users actively use this feature and if you are among them, this model will not satisfy your needs. At the same time, the smartphone has an attractive look and features that cover basic needs.

The large screen is suitable for viewing a variety of content, from texts and photos to videos. It will also appeal to gamers who are looking for a more productive smartphone.
