The Budget Vivo Y25 Smartphone Launched In Malaysia

After recently releasing the Vivo Y53 and Y55s smartphone, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is further expanding its Y series and has launched a new entry level smartphone called the Y25, in Malaysia.

The devices comes with 4.5 inch FWVGA screen with a 480×854 pixel resolution. This is disappointing for even a low-range budget phone. The operating system is Android 5.1 Lollipop whereas most phones today use Marshmallow and are gradually upgrading to Nougat. The device is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and a 1 GB RAM. With just 1 GB of RAM, the phone will function slower and will not allow much multitasking between apps.

The phone has 16GB internal storage with microSD card slots that support up to 128GB worth of expandable memory which seems like a boon as compared to the other features offered by the Y25.

It comes with a 5 megapixel rear primary camera with an LED Flash and a 2 megapixel front camera for selfie lovers. The phone connects to 4G LTE and 3G as well. Vivo has failed to offer a support for a 4G network with this phone which immediately sends this phone to the bottom of most potential buyer’s lists. It also connects to WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The phone is equipped with a 1,900mAh battery which may not offer a battery life of more than 6 hours.

It is currently available in Grey and White colour variants and is priced at RM 499 which is approximately Rs. 7,400. There are multiple smartphones already available at a similar price range in the Indian market which also offer better specifications in addition to being lower-priced.

There is little news about the phone being launched in India but it is said to happen soon. But in comparison to similar priced smartphones available here, the features do not seem to stand too strong.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
