And to begin with…
When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.Depending on whether you are a seasoned user or a beginner, the choices are different.Already at the level of the operating system of this Y12i 32 GB: here, it is an Android with all the Vivo ecosystem that goes with it.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
Unfortunately, our analysis showed that this product was below what you would expect from a smartphone.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

Is the Y12i 32 GB compatible for nomadic use?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
A model that fits in your pocket: the Y12i 32 GB.A size of 6.35 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.And therefore several operators on this model.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
Detail that is missing on this Y12i 32 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Finally, with a 5000 mAH battery, this phone is among those that will have the best possible autonomy.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
In conclusion on battery charging, Vivo has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.The 6.35-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1544.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Vivo sought to improve the audio experience.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Vivo’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This model has 32 GB, which is low.But some of you will need more; that’s why Vivo has left a free slot for a memory card.
Games involve intense use of the battery.On this model, there is little to worry about: it is on the best side of autonomy.A power of 5000 mAh will give you all day to play.And with its attractive design, you’ll never let it go again.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 6.35 inches.This is an entry-level model: 268* pixels per inch.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Vivo has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
This Y12i 32 GB has a photo resolution of 13 Mp, identical to its competitors.In fact, it’s enough to make some nice pictures or a few holiday movies.The components of the device allow quality selfies.If necessary, you can even retouch the images with the embedded software.This Y12i 32 GB will capture all the points of the image, and will perfectly reproduce the brightness and colors.
This smartphone has only 32 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
What about the Y12i 32 GB?
This Y12i 32 GB is not good for all uses.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
