VIVO Y55s has a simple candybar design with 2.5D curved-edge glass on the front. If you haven’t used a Vivo phone before, then there’s a bit of a learning curve as certain controls have been moved around. General UI performance is good. The rear camera has a 13mp but the screen flash is slightly weak
The Good
  • Good camera
  • Slim and sleek design
  • User interface is good
The Bad
  • Screen flash is weak
  • Slow processor

Vivo Y55S has a certain iPhone-like look which isn't uncommon for Chinese manufacturers.General UI performance is good, and we didn’t face any major stutter or lags during everyday usage. The volume and clarity of the loudspeaker aren't very good, and sound quality is only sufficient for alerts.
The Good
  • Funtouch os is nice
  • Great battery
The Bad
  • Low light photos are dim
  • Bad camera quality

Vivo is projecting its Y55s as a camera-centric smartphone – something we are not yet used to seeing in this budget. The phone comes bundled up in a sturdy plastic body and slides into one hand comfortably. Y55s is a compact, good-looking smartphone, with a design that mimics its older siblings, which you can literally work on ‘single-handedly’.
The Good
  • great camera
  • premium and great looks
The Bad
  • Funtouch OS is irritating
  • NO fast charging

The Vivo Y55s has the usual unibody metal design.The Vivo Y55S has an arguably poor performing processor and speaker output is loud and clear.The phone has metal back which is not too slippery.Daylight and macro shots came out nice and produced good color and were decent in clarity. The flash is also good
The Good
  • Unique eye protection mode
  • Daylight and macros shots are amazing
  • Speaker output is loud
The Bad
  • Heavy in wieght
  • Slow processor
