Yezz liv1 is a smartphone with dimensions that make it comfortable to work with one hand only for people who have big hands. You will feel quite big if you are a woman. At the same time, his weight is quite low. There will be almost no fatigue while using it. At only 133.3 grams, it is imperceptible when you carry it in your jeans pocket or in your bag.

Visually, the device immediately makes an impression on a model in which no original design solutions are used. Its front side is characterized by wide frames at the top and bottom. On the back panel we see a camera and a flash in the upper left corner. The edges of the device are pleasantly rounded, which contributes to the high evaluation of the design.


Yezz liv1 has a display with a diagonal of 5 inches. This makes it one of the models with smaller screens. People who work with long texts may not like it. We understand the picture quality from the TFT matrix used and the pixel density. Additionally, the resolution is low. So Yezz liv1 can not boast of a perfect display. However, it is good enough to visualize any content. Sometimes it can be slightly blurred. In most cases, you will not have any criticism of the display.

It is worth sharing as a plus the presence of screen protection. It is provided by AGC glass. It is not the most popular on the market, but still provides some greater durability with prolonged use.


Under the body of the Yezz liv1 lies a relatively good chipset. It consists of four cores clocked at 1.3 GHz. You may notice which applications and games are hampering his work. For everyday tasks, however, it is completely sufficient. You will have no problems with phone calls, or browsing or using applications such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Mali-T820 MP1 is responsible for the graphics.

Yezz liv1 is equipped with 1 GB of RAM, which is small by today's standards. The storage is 16 GB. It can be expanded if necessary with a memory card up to 64 GB.

By default, this Yezz model comes with the Android 9 Go Edition operating system. It provides everything that followers of Android phones like.


The performance of the main camera of Yezz liv1 is not the most impressive. It is single, 5-megapixel and requires skills on your part. If you train with it and make the most of the settings, you can start taking better photos. At your disposal are HDR mode and panorama, as well as other basic options.

In turn, the selfie camera also does not enjoy any innovations and technologies to artificially improve the quality of photos. The lens is 2-megapixel. Even with an LED flash, it will still be difficult to take pictures with enviable quality. If you are a fan of mobile photography, you can look at the models in the higher price range.

With Yezz liv1 in hand, you can shoot videos with a maximum resolution of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second. This is a typical indicator of budget models. Given the absence of algorithms and additional sensors, their quality is unimpressive.

Autonomous work

Yezz liv1 has a battery with a capacity of 2000 mAh. This is standard for this type of phone. As a standalone operation, you can count on a typical performance, as neither the screen nor the performance are too demanding. With normal use, it will need to be recharged every day. If you embark on long games at maximum screen brightness, get ready for the charger in a few hours.


Yezz liv1 is a budget smartphone with distinctive performance, photo and screen quality. It can be used to perform basic tasks. It will not impress fans of camera phones and music lovers. As a device for beginners it is an excellent choice. With it you can make phone calls without any problems, surf the Internet and use non-resource-intensive applications.
