Top 5 reasons why vivo Y100 could dominate the mid-range like no other smartphone

The all-new vivo Y100 is a power-packed handset with high-end specs that add significant value to its unbelievable Rs 24,999 price.

Just a few days back, vivo launched a new entrant to its popular Y series of smartphones and it’s been gaining a lot of buzz ever since. The all-new vivo Y100 is a power-packed handset with high-end specs that add significant value to its unbelievable Rs 24,999 price. Moreover, it is also an excellent device in terms of its looks, thanks to the unique nature of its design elements. Let us tell you the five reasons why we think the vivo Y100 is all set to take the mid-range market by storm.

Color-changing Fluorite AG glass – Distinct look that sets it apart

Last year, with the vivo V23, the company introduced its color-changing Fluorite AG glass technology. The innovative feature allows the rear panel of the device to change its color based on the kind of light it’s reflecting. This means, the phone’s color won’t be constant, as holding it in sunlight will make the rear panel reflect a particular shade and holding it in shade will lead to a completely different one. This year, vivo has brought the same feature to the Y series for the first time. The Y100 not just gains tremendous novelty value from this addition but also gets an exquisite overall appearance.

And while other vivo handsets that adopted the color-changing Fluorite AG glass technology were only sold in one such shade, the Y100 is being offered in two – Twilight Gold and Pacific Blue. And there’s even a third Metal Black option for those who prefer the dark shade. The Pacific Blue option exudes a cool charm and fluctuates between sky blue to darker blue shades depending on the kind of light falling on it and Twilight Gold is for those who like warm colors as it goes from a strong warn gold to orange gold. The Y100 gives you ample opportunity to express your style with its two Color Changing Glass options and the third Metal Black option.

64MP Anti-Shake Camera – Clear and blur-free shots

The vivo Y100’s rear surface is designed to look like dual-lens reflex cameras of the past and the Dual-Ring Pearl Glass used on this assembly exudes a pearl-like effect that hints at the professional-grade imaging capabilities of the phone’s cameras. The device boasts an 64MP OIS Anti-Shake Camera that gets its abilities from the advanced OIS apparatus accompanying the sensor. This not only allows it to render silky-smooth 4K footage in any scenario but also helps achieve blur-free photos in low light.

The 64MP Anti-Shake Camera has a few features that are aimed at vloggers as well. These include a special Hybrid Image Stabilisation option that combines EIS with OIS so you can get even smoother footage of yourself for your daily vlogs. Dual-View Video, which uses the front and the rear camera at the same time is also present and so are features that let you make your vlogs more flashy and cinematic.

vivo’s Super Night Mode is available as well, allowing the capture of stunning, high-quality images in low light. The Y100’s triple camera setup includes 2MP macro and portrait snappers that add a lot of versatility to the imaging experience. In fact, portrait photography is a big focus here with different kinds of bokeh modes being offered to add a professional touch to your photos.

Ultra-fast charging capability – Juice up in no time!

The 4,500mAh battery that goes inside the vivo Y100 charges at phenomenal speed thanks to the 44W FlashCharge technology. Usually, with such charging capabilities, there are concerns regarding heating issues but even that has been taken care of by vivo. A 24-Dimension Security Protection feature has been granted to the phone, allowing you to feel at ease when you put your phone down for charging. The Y100’s amazing battery life combined with its super-fast charging is another aspect that makes it an irresistible smartphone in the mid-range league.

Powerful performance with 16GB of effective RAM

Buyers of the vivo Y100 can expect nothing short of top-notch performance from it. It’s powered by the 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, which brings the benefits of a 2.4GHz octa-core processor and a Mali-G68 GPU. Running your everyday tasks should be a breeze for this setup and the same can also be said for gaming. The Y100 is the ideal mid-range smartphone for those who are fond of playing high-end online games like Call of Duty Mobile.

Additionally, the Y100 enables excellent multitasking on the back of its Extended RAM 3.0 feature. This technology allows you to convert vacant storage into additional memory, thus letting you add another 8GB of RAM to the 8GB that’s already present on the handset. With such a provision, one can just forget about app freezes and animation hiccups. The 16GB of effective RAM will help the phone render ultra-fast app launch times and silky-smooth switching between apps.

Gorgeous AMOLED display – Vibrant visuals with stunning colors

The front of the vivo Y100 is adorned by a 6.38-inch AMOLED panel that contributes to making it an entertainment powerhouse. This FHD+ panel offers a 90Hz refresh rate and is capable of delivering a peak brightness of 1300 nits. It covers the DCL-P3 color gamut and even comes with an HDR10+ certification. Whether you’re using the phone for gaming or watching your favourite movies and TV shows, you can rest assured that you will experience high levels of immersion.

How to get your hands on vivo Y100?

A cashback of Rs 1,500 can be availed of by those using Kotak Mahindra, HDFC, ICICI and SBI cards, bringing its price down to Rs 23,499.
