We can’t see any difference with the new Vivo Y55s from the previous model with the design department. The notable changes are underneath the hood. From Snapdragon 430, Vivo opted for a lower clock speed of the Snapdragon 425 chipset but RAM was bumped into 3GB.

The device retains the 5.2-inch HD display which bright and beautiful. Another upgrade are the cameras – 13 megapixel at the rear while 5 megapixel at the front. There is also a slight bump with the battery to 2,750 mAh battery.

We had the Vivo Y55s for about 24 hours and overall experience is very smooth. We have not downloaded anything yet but we will do stress tests for our full review.


The changes internally are quite curious for us. A slight downgrade on the processing power but upgrade on RAM allocation. We will see how it fares on daily use. For now, build quality is one of the phone’s best highlights. Full review in two weeks!
