There's nothing unique or new about the overall design of the Vivo Y17. It's a flat slab with rounded sides and a water drop-style notch for the front camera. However, this phone does have character thanks to the choice of deep jewel-tone colors for the frame and rear panel. You can choose between Mineral Blue and Mystic Purple, both of which are pretty unconventional. Both options have gradient finishes.
The 6.35-inch screen has a resolution of 720x1544 in a 19.3:9 aspect ratio, and Vivo has used a standard LCD panel. Several other smartphones at this price level, including the Samsung Galaxy M30 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro feature superior full-HD panels.
The Vivo Y17 has a 13-megapixel f/2.2 primary rear camera with a secondary 8-megapixel f/2.2 wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel f/2.4 depth sensor for portrait shots. This isn't particularly impressive, especially the high apertures which indicate that low-light performance might not be up to the mark that other phones at this price level have set. Vivo has instead focused on the front camera, which has a 20-megapixel resolution and f/2.0 aperture.
Under the hood, the Vivo Y17 is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 processor. This is a mid-range processor with eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores all running at 2.3GHz, and an integrated PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The Vivo Y17 comes in a single configuration with 4GB of RAM and a relatively generous 128GB of storage.
One of the big selling points of this phone is its 5000mAh battery. The Y17 comes with an 18W charger and the company says this phone supports “dual engine” fast charging, which means there's extra circuitry for speed as well as protection. Vivo says the Y17 supports dual-band Wi-Fi, but hasn't specified which version. You also get Bluetooth 5, GPS, and FM radio. 4G with VoLTE is supported on both SIMs at the same time. In addition to the standard ambient light and proximity sensors, there's an e-compass and virtual gyroscope.
Vivo Y17's lowest price in Pakistan is Rs.32,799.
