The Vivo Y25 is a budget 4G Smartphone from the multinational technology Chinese company; Vivo, which was launched in March 2017 in Malaysia. The company’s aim of coming up with this phone was to provide an affordable but quality gadget for people who do not wish to spend a lot on a mobile phone.

It runs on an older Android 5.1 version Operating System (Lollipop), and only has accelerator and proximity sensors. It’s capable of Wi-Fi 809.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, and hotspot connectivity as well as Bluetooth 4.0, A2DP, A-GPS, FM Radio, and also microUSB v2.0, and USB on-the-go connectivity. It’s fitted with HTML5 for browsing and a MP4/H.264 player, MP3/WAV/FLAC/eAAC+ players, a photo/video editor, and a document viewer.

Vivo Y25 is powered by a Li-Ion 1900mAh battery. It is also capable of 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and microUSB port connectivity, and also has an accelerometer, a photosensitive sensor, and a proximity sensor.

This Smartphone also comes with features such as Smart- click, which enables a user to customize features or apps from a locked screen by just pressing on the volume control. It also has a Smart Wake feature, which allows the user to control the phone from a locked screen with a single finger by issuing a command by swiping or drawing certain patterns which call for the use of specific apps, for instance one can draw the letter ‘c’ on the locked screen to use the camera, the letter ‘w’ to use Whatsap, and so forth. The phone also has a voice capture feature which enables a user to operate the phone by issuing voice commands such as ‘cheese’ to take a selfie without using the long procedure of going all the way to the camera app and clicking to take photos. Vivo Y25 also has a palm capture feature, which enables one to take pictures by simply waving at the screen. This makes it possible to place the phone in a strategic position and take photos without holding the phone, making it an adventurous gadget for photo lovers.

The Vivo Y25, however, faces stiff competition from other companies who market affordable phones such as the Reliance Digital LYF Water 7S and the Intex Aqua Strong 5.1+, which have better features.
