It is worth noting that behind the Smartphone you will locate a rectangular camera module on the upper left margin, while if you wonder where it is located its fingerprint sensor, has been integrated directly below its panel for a quick unlock just by placing your finger on the home screen.

Performance with pros and cons


VIVO Y22S arrives with triple rear camera

Regarding its main details, the first thing to mention focuses on its screen and perhaps it is one of the elements that leaves the worst feelings, since its 6.55-inch IPS panel stays at a native resolution of 1612 x 720 pixels. The truth is that it is no longer so common for manufacturers to go below the Full HD standard in this range of phones.

Internally, a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 composed of eight cores at a frequency of 2.4 GHz is enough for the type of use you want to give it, in addition to the accompaniment of a 6 GB RAM to ensure good fluidity and 128 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD so that you do not lack free space when storing many Apps and multimedia content.

On the more positive side of the analysis of VIVO Y22S we can indicate that its 5000 mAh capacity battery will be enough for you to overcome a day of mixed use without problemswhile if you like to take good pictures you can rest easy thanks to a 50-megapixel triple rear configuration with f/1.8 aperture and two 2-megapixel secondary sensors (bokeh and depth) that raise their aperture to f/2.4.

To conclude, there is support for a more conventional 8-megapixel front-facing camera for capturing selfies and video calls, while its connectivity includes support for 4G LTE mobile networks, dual SIM slot, Bluetooth 5.0 and even NFC for support with mobile payment services.
