Vivo Y81 Complete Review 2019
The Vivo Y81 is a good-looking device with a moderate spec-sheet that does everything you would expect a smartphone to do, from a standard configuration to good cameras. However, it is worth mentioning that for the price, this phone is not competitive, it packs some low-end hardware, from the screen to low internal storage, lack of dual cameras or even the modest configurations, at this price segment we observe much better spec-sheets from other vendors. The phone will work well for daily usage but the price tag is too jacked up.
Good camera
Satisfactory battery life
Lacks FHD display
Moderate internal storage
