Vivo Y53s has a surface that is glossy. It cleverly disguises the plastic body. The design is meant to impress and is complemented by a light weight. The build quality is impeccable. The rounded edges make for comfortable use and pocket carry.

On the back panel, which can be black, silver or blue, the rear camera is positioned. It is located in the upper right corner - there is nothing atypical about this. There are hundreds of models designed in this way. Below the cameras is the flash. The fingerprint scanner you will find on the page. At the bottom of the rear panel is the manufacturer's logo, which stands gently, especially in the lighter colors.

On the front panel, we have a large screen surrounded by thick bezels. This look suggests the budgetness of the device. The selfie camera is housed in a drop-shaped notch.


Vivo Y53s has received an IPS display with a diagonal of 6.58 inches and Full HD+ resolution. The pixel density per inch is 401 and the picture refresh rate is 60 Hz. The screen features ample brightness reserve - you will work with the device comfortably for indoors and outdoors. As for the viewing angles, a decrease in contrast and saturation is noticeable with strong deflection.

From the settings, you can choose a colour rendering that suits you. Three modes are available.


Inside the Vivo Y53s lies a MediaTek Helio G80 chip combined with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. The latter can be expanded using a microSD memory card.

Tests have shown that the Vivo Y53s runs smoothly and without stuttering. For its graphics is responsible Adreno 619. The operating system is Android 11 combined with the company's OriginOS 1.0.

In games, the Vivo Y53s demonstrates sufficient performance. Even two hours of continuous play do not lead to heating of the housing. Yes, it is warm but comfortable to hold.

A fingerprint scanner, which is built into the screen lock button, is responsible for the safety of your data. The sensor works fast and you will easily get used to using it.

Here we will mention another advantage of Vivo Y53s - the quality and loud sound. Watching videos and listening to music will be a real pleasure with this device.


Vivo Y53s is equipped with a main camera that consists of three lenses. The main one is 64-megapixel and has an aperture of f/1.8. It is complemented by a 2-megapixel sensor for depth sensing in portrait mode and a 2-megapixel sensor for macro shots. Shooting with the main camera during the day results in shots with a good level of detail. Thanks to HDR support, you get better quality results. In the dark hours of the day, we recommend taking advantage of the night mode. A number of other popular modes are also available to you these days.

The front camera of the Vivo Y53s is 16-megapixel and has an f/2.0 aperture. It has a portrait mode that will take social media-worthy shots.

Autonomous operation

Underneath the body lies a 5000 mAh battery. This charge will last you for a day of active work. You also get a 33W charger in the box. It gives you a 0 to 100% recharge in less than an hour.


Once again, Vivo shows that it knows how to bring to market balanced devices with sought-after features and low price. Among the merits of Vivo Y53s are beautiful design, quality screen and good performance. Along with this, the camera makes a positive impression, especially when shooting during the day. The presence of an NFC chip for contact payments and a memory card slot add to the smartphone's pros.

If we have to mention some of the cons, it is the lack of a wide-angle lens and protection against moisture and dust. Stay away from water with the Vivo Y53s.
