It wouldn’t be unfair to refer to the design of the Vivo Y66 as uninspired. The phone is virtually identical to most other devices and doesn’t push any boundaries when it comes to design. It does no favors to the brand when all the models look more or less alike.
The front is where you’ll notice the now common 5.5 inch display. Up top is a 16MP front facing camera alongside a single LED flash. You’ll of course also find the central earpiece and ambient light sensor. Below the screen are three capacitive keys corresponding to menu, home and back keys.
The left side of the phone is where you’ll spot the volume rocker and power button. Meanwhile the left hand side has a hybrid SIM slot. The phone charges over microUSB port at the bottom. The 3.5mm audio jack lies at the top of the handset.
Flip over to the back and once again you have the familiar design. There’s nothing much to complain about here . The metal construction feels good and over at the top lies the camera module and LED flash. The handset measures 153.8 x 75.5 x 7.6mm and weighs 155grams making it a densely built phone but certainly not heavy. Overall, the Vivo Y66 is a fairly good looking device with a build to match.
The Vivo Y66 runs a highly customized version of Android that it calls Funtouch OS. This OS is based on Android 6.0 and brings with it several changes to the interface.
The homescreen drops the two level app drawer and all icons are displayed straight on the homescreen. You can however make folders to sort out your apps.
The software segregates the notification toggles from the notification bar area and drops them into a separate pull up area that can be brought up from the lower edge of the screen.
Other additions include the ability to customize the volume key as a shortcut to perform a number of actions. For YouTubers, Content Creators and anybody else who likes to annotate long webpages, there’s built in support for screen recording, long screenshots and to annotate pages.
The Vivo Y66 is powered by the 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 Processor paired with 3GB of RAM. A tried and tested chipset, we’ve previously found it to be reliable enough for a daily driver phone. Pure performance is not quite it’s strongest suit and while day to day usability is a.
If you already have a Vivo smart phone and wants to exchange it with this one, it’s not such a great deal. Most of the features are same so we would suggest that you should stick with the same phone. Other than that, Vivo Y66 is a great phone with great specifications.
