The latest vivo Y33s has been launched in Malaysia recently, sporting specs and features that not many smartphones in the same price segment would.

With “That’s Y” as its tagline, the vivo Y33s gives users the several reasons why it’s a midrange smartphone that is worth purchasing; here’s why:

Attention-grabbing design and large display

The vivo Y33s is available in two colours — Mirror Black and Midday Dream. Whether users prefer a classic black appearance, or a dreamy pastel mix, both variants that are equally appealing and trendy.

The Mirror Black version uses a double layer coating that literally turns the rear of the vivo Y33s into a mirror while the Midday Dream colour uses liquid crystal coating to bring shine and smoothness to the back panel that is a gradient of orange and blue.

It’s not just the slim 8.0mm design; the vivo Y33s also has a large 6.58-inch display with a 90.6% screen-to-body ratio and it pushes FHD+ resolution in addition to offering vibrant colours with good amount of details.

With the built-in blue light filter, users can protect their eyes when reading or watching movies in a lowlight environment.

Performance is not an issue, especially with vivo’s RAM expansion

The vivo Y33s sports 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but both can be expanded in different ways; when users run out of memory, the vivo Y33s automatically converts idle, free storage to RAM — users can get up to 4GB of additional RAM this way.

For those who love storing photos and videos on their phones, they can also insert a microSD card and get up to 1TB of storage in the vivo Y33s.

Powered by the Helio G80 processor, this smartphone can support games like PUBG Mobile and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang with ease as it is a gaming-optimised processor.

Battery that can last you all-day long

Apart from offering good performance, vivo also understand users’ need for long hours of usage, hence the inclusion of a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charge.

With a hefty battery, this phone can usually last a day or two, plus its 18W fast charging offers a full charge from 0% to 100% within 150 minutes — that’s justifiable since the vivo Y33s has a large battery.

Users can even reverse charge other devices using the vivo Y33s; this feature is useful for emergencies — whether it’s juicing up someone else’s dying phone or charging accessories like wireless earbuds to be used on the go.

A camera system that caters to day and night scenarios

Equipped with a 50MP triple camera setup, the vivo Y33s can capture high-definition photos no matter day or night — this is made possible with vivo’s Super Night Mode algorithm, Super HDR and Eye Autofocus technologies.

On the front, users get a 16MP selfie camera with additional features such as Super Night Selfie, Smart Screen Flash; pair this with the existing beauty adjustments and pose suggestions, taking selfies with the vivo Y33s becomes effortless and fun.

That’s Y you should get the vivo Y33s


With all these features and specs, the vivo Y33s is an interesting smartphone that offers value for money.

It is priced at RM999 and can be purchased from vivo Malaysia e-store and vivo’s official store on Shopee and Lazada.
