 Vivo Y21

Vivo Y21 brings competitive pricing to budget phones balancing out the basic features with decent performance and its high capacity batteries. It sports a 6.58 inch IPS LCD screen, decent 4GB RAM, a massive 5000mAh battery, 18w fast charging, and the decent Helio P35 chipset. That’s certainly eye-catching a device at its price point.

The Vivo V21 measures 164.3 x 76.1 x 8 mm (height x width x thickness) with a total weight of 182 grams. Coming to cameras, it has a triple 13 MP + 2 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera for selfies. This phone has 6.51 inches, IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 270 PPI. It has a 2.0, Type-C 1.0 port for data syncing and charging. There is a fingerprint sensor present on the Vivo V21. It is a dual SIM smartphone with support for 4G, Wi-Fi, and GPS too.

Vivo Y21 comes with a 6.51-inch IPS LCD screen with a dewdrop notch design for the selfie camera. It’s a huge phone, hardly a one-handed operation, with a screen-to-body ratio of 81.8%. It has a plastic frame and back and a scratch-resistant front panel. It is very bright and vivid, peaking at 500 nits. It’s not rated for splash protection, but it’s certainly not waterproof. Fortunately, it has top-placed a headphone jack. It has a physical fast side-mounted fingerprint sensor, which also acts as the home button. It has a downward-firing speaker, which is great for playing media.


Vivo Y21 comes with the budget Mediatek Helio P35, making it decently fast. It has a Cortex Octa-core A53 CPU paired with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU, with storage options of 4 GB for RAM & 64 or 128 GB for ROM. Y21 also comes with a dedicated expandable memory option. It is running the latest Android 11, with a Funtouch 11.1 skin on top. The performance feels fast, smooth, and rich in color. It however comes with lots of pre-installed apps, which can be an underwhelming experience, especially if you are not used to bloatware. The OS is however very customizable, with tones of themes and other customizations.


Vivo Y21 has a dual-camera arrangement on the back. It comes with a 13MP primary sensor, for those excellent daylight photos. Additionally, it has a 2MP macro lens. It still delivers decently and colorfully. It will predictably deliver less and less as light reduces, but that’s the concession for this price. The video can support up to 1080p video at 30 fps, with HDR support. The selfie camera is a decent 8MP wide sensor, capable of 1080p video at 30fps. The selfies are great and well-lit.

Other features

The Vivo Y21 supports USB Type C, with 18W fast charging. Needless to say, there is also no wireless charging. On the flip side, it comes with a massive Li-Po 5000mAh non-removable battery. It can get fully charged in just over 1 hour. Despite being a budget phone, the addition of the fairly quick chipset & big battery really does turntables for this device. It truly is a beautiful device to look at. There is no NFC for contactless payments but we have FM radio.

It comes in Diamond Glow and Midnight Blue
