This July, the Chinese manufacturer Vivo officially went to Ukraine. We got one of the smartphones that the manufacturer has presented on the Ukrainian market. Vivo Y17 is a mainstream that boasts a triple camera, NFC and a powerful battery.
The smartphone looks stylish. Although the gradient panel now you will surprise nobody, but in Vivo Y17 cover looks interesting: we see an overflow of blue from turquoise to purple. Triple camera placed in the upper left corner and not too much sticks out. Therefore, the smartphone “no”, if you click on him when he is on the table.
One more original detail – the camera module is framed by a gold strip. Like a trifle, but looks original. The rear surface of the smartphone is made of plastic, although it looks like glass.
Vivo Y17 looks stylish
On the front panel, IPS screen with a resolution of 1544×720 pixels. Not too high resolution, but grit, I didn’t notice. The front camera is placed in the keyhole, however, quite bulky at the bottom “chin”. Active screen is 81.4% of the entire front panel.
Bulges below the chin
The screen is bright enough, problems when using under the bright rays. Good color rendering: white looks white, black only gives seravotu. Viewing angles are also at a high level. Out of the box the display has a special film for protection.
Smartphone massive. Diagonal is 6.35 inches. It weighs almost 200 grams. That’s a lot. So I was not too comfortable to use with one hand. A fingerprint scanner deployed in the center on the rear panel. Also, in my subjective opinion, not the best placement. I feel more comfortable to use when the scanner is on the side panel, and behind it still need to find. But maybe that’s because I have a small hand.
Smartphone slightly uncomfortable to use with one hand
By the way, speaking of the scanner, it works very quickly. There is also a Face ID to unlock the face. Also triggered very quickly, smartphone rasplachivaetsya even in dim light, though here the process will be longer.
It’s definitely not the strongest side Vivo Y17. It works on an 8-core processor MediaTek P35 (frequency – 2,3 GHz) paired with 4GB of memory. In the ranking of Antutu he collects about 88 thousand points. Compare it with Redmi Note 7 (and the features and price they are really similar). However, the performance test smartphone Xiaomi showed significantly best result is a model with 4GB of RAM scored almost 140 thousand points.
While Vivo Y17 has an NFC – module for contactless payment. The owners of Xiaomi employees about such a function can only dream of.
The smartphone is running Android 9 Pie with a proprietary Funtouch firmware 9.
The basic module consists of three chambers:
The main sensor at 13 megapixels (aperture f/2,2)
Wide angle module 8 megapixels (aperture f/2,2)
For pictures of the side meets the auxiliary sensor of 2 megapixels (aperture f/2.4).
The first photo is the main sensor, the second wide-angle
Vivo Y17: photo in foggy day
As for the photo, it makes Vivo Y17 them very well. In bright daylight the pictures are good. The only thing slightly wrong is the bokeh. Problems arise with uneven surface, for example, hair. Optical stabilization is not here.
“50 shades of red” – images using bokeh
The basic module is the indoor
And this point can be considered as a pride for Vivo Y17. Battery capacity is 5000 mAh. It’s not a record, but quite a lot, given the price range of the smartphone. In normal use (scrolling social networks, videos on YouTube) I had the smartphone for a full two two the battery.

The device is equipped with 18 watt charging, so up to 100% of the smartphone can be charged in 2 hours.
Self “improvement” and without
If you dig into the settings, you can find a lot of interesting.
OTG – this feature allows you to charge other smartphones or to connect to the device USB drive.
Superscripsit of the screen. It can make swiping up with three fingers.
Split screen. If you hold three fingers down, it is possible to divide the screen to watch videos and chat in the chat – now feature useful.
Ultragroove mode. Smartphone frankly can be called weak in performance, so it is definitely not a gaming device. However, if you want anything to get out of him, the developer proposes to activate this mode. It may block some messages and reject calls to improve performance during demanding games.
One-hand operation. It’s important for me to function (I’ve mentioned the dimensions above). So you have to swipe from the edge to the middle and Vice versa – thus activate the control mode with one hand.
The screen to draw a letterto start a specific function. For example, “@” – launch email, f – facebook, and the like.
Another interesting feature – mode of a motorcycle. It offered to activate when the user rides a motorcycle, although it can be used while riding the Bicycle or other mode of transport when we need the maximum concentration. Once it has been activated, incoming calls will be rejected automatically. Also turn off all sound notifications. To answer a call only after you stop. By the way, if you are worried not to offend people that tried to call, you can enable auto answer via sms.
Vivo Y17 can buy 5 500 UAH
Now in Ukraine Vivo Y17 with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal memory can be bought for 5 500 UAH.
Should I take
Gamers it will not work. If you are looking for a stylish smartphone to take photos and post them in social networks we recommend you to pay attention. It is inexpensive, but looks nice, I would say “expensive”. The camera takes very good pictures. Well, the battery – so cool that you don’t need every night to charge the device or carry everywhere powerbank.
