Vivo recently launched its new smartphones Vivo Y72 and Vivo Mazda e – earlier this month in India. The key features and pricing of these two smartphones suggest that they will competently compete with the likes of Nokia E71 and HTC Evo series. In this article we take a detailed look at the features and technology that differentiate the two phones.
Like its predecessors, the Vivo Y 72 offers a built in QWERTY keyboard with multi-touch support on its physical home key. Like the Nokia E71, it also offers a solid body and powerful hardware, allowing it to compete with the likes of HTC Evo. However, it differs from the Evo in that the former offers a full charge and has a headphone jack, while the latter does not. In addition to this, the handset’s key features and functions are nearly identical to the Evo. Therefore, for the purposes of our review we have classified the two phones according to their battery capacity, hardware and software.
The HTC Evo is equipped with a hardware dual core CPU and MSM modem, while the Vivo Y 72 has a quad core MSM processor and is backed with a high performance Adreno GPU. This suggests that the two phones have similar but different battery power consumption and performance levels. In our battery power testing, both handsets managed to maintain an average performance level even during heavy use, which is surprising considering the difference in CPU power.
The performance of the handset improved vivo y72 when we used it on AC power. The HTC Evo is equipped with an advanced power saving modes which offer users a reduced processing load in order to allow the phone to use less energy while it is being charged. On the other hand, the full charge in the Vivo y72 5g offered a better experience with higher power consumption. It is common knowledge that the HTC Evo has a superior display compared to the Vivo Y 72, however, it seems as though the manufacturer over-clocked the handset so that it offers better battery life.
The battery in the Yota is one of the most advanced and efficient on the market today. The Vivo Y 72 comes with a rapid-charging feature, which allows the phone to charge to full in just over an hour. Compared to the Evo, the battery in the Yota is about twice as long, giving it about an hour more of battery life. The dual core CPU and high quality Adreno GPU mean that this handset can easily last a whole day on a charge, though this depends on how much actual use the phone is going to get. If you are looking for a phone which has a long battery life, then the Vivo Y 72 might not be a good choice, but if you need a phone with a powerful processor and lots of memory, then you will find that the HTC Evo is the better solution.
Finally, if you are planning on taking lots of pictures, then the rear 16 MP camera on the Vivo Y 72 is going to come in very handy. This type of camera does not offer a zoom option, but the lens does have a great depth effect, enabling you to take pictures of very far away objects. On the subject of cameras, the rear camera on the HTC Evo is also capable of taking some fantastic pictures. For example, many people would probably have seen the HTC Desire in the stores, but few people would have realised that the rear camera on this handset was actually better than many point and shoot cameras on the market!
