Vivo Y15 Philippines Price, Specs, Features, Promo Details

Vivo Mobile Philippines has just released a new midrange Android smartphone that can be a described as a bit of a watered down version of their best-selling Vivo Y17.

The all-new Vivo Y15 comes with several of the key strengths of the more expensive Vivo Y17 but it has less storage space, runs on a slightly less powerful processor, and lacks Dual Engine Fast Charging.

Nonetheless, priced at only PHP 10,999, Vivo Y15 has the same 6.53 inch HD+ IPS Display, Triple Rear Camera Module, 4GB of RAM, and a whopping 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery pack, which are also the hallmarks of the Vivo Y17.

The large screen of this model is great for watching videos, viewing photos, reading blogs, checking social media apps, and playing games. So if you love doing those activities on your entry-level handset and you feel like you could use a more sizable display on a fairly affordable mid-level phone to get a better visual experience, you should check out this model.

On top of that, the three shooters at the back make the Vivo Y15 quite a reliable cameraphone for everyday use. The 13 MegaPixel f/2.2 primary cam is capable of delivering clear and crisp images especially when there's enough ambient light. The secondary 8 MegaPixel f/2.2 has an ultra-wide angle lens that lets you capture more of the scene that's in front of you without taking several steps back; This is great for snapping landscape images. Finally, the 2 MegaPixel depth sensor enables Portrait Mode, which lets you add luscious blurred background effect to portraits or even food shots.

As expected from a Vivo handset, the Y15 is also good for taking selfies. The 16 MegaPixel front-facing cam inside the Halo notch is powered by the company's own AI Beauty software that automatically evens out your skin-tone while retaining your identifying facial features -- so your selfies still look like you even after instant beautification.

If you've never enjoyed carrying a bulky powerbank in your bag or charging your smartphone in your office in the middle of the day just to make sure that it won't run out of juice on your way home in the evening, you will certainly appreciate Vivo Y15's ultra-large 5,000 mAh battery. With such a big capacity pack, you can easily get a whole day and night of uptime from this smartphone even with slightly heavy usage.

Since this model lacks Dual Engine Fast Charging, which is a feature you will enjoy on the Vivo Y17, you should remember to plug in this smartphone before going to bed at night because it will take a while to be fully charged.

Other notable features of the Vivo Y15 include its energy-efficient 12nm Octa Core MediaTek Helio P22 processor with PowerVR GE8320 graphics chip that's good enough for light 3D gaming, 4GB of RAM for relatively smooth multitasking, 64GB of internal storage that's expandable via the phone's dedicated microSD card slot, rear-mounted Fingerprint Scanner, and Face Unlock.

Vivo Y15 is available in two elegant and eye-catching colors, namely, Burgundy Red and Aqua Blue. Frankly, it has almost the same design identity as the Vivo Y17, which means that it looks more expensive than it actually is.

Interested? You might want to take advantage of Vivo Mobile Philippines' current discount promotion for the Vivo Y15.
