Editor Rating

Vivo Y22 is a cheap and understated entry-level smartphone that features a 2.5D curved unibody design that is housed in a body and frame made with plastic. The special aesthetic features curved edges but flat sides and a flat back panel. The front display is also flat, as expected, with a tiny tear-drop-shaped notch being the only thing that interrupts the flow of the panel. While you do get a large 6.55 inches display, the fact that the resolution tops out at 720p and you only get a 60Hz refresh rate makes it a bit of a compromise.


Bottom Line

Vivo Y22 is a decent entry-level smartphone which features a stylish design and vibrant display, as well as a reliable and efficient processor. The areas that you will find some issues are the extremely slow charging speeds of the large battery, as well as the basic camera setup that needs lots of light to perform well.
