    Vivo Y66 Review

    Vivo Y66 Review

    Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has made many significant attempts to ride on the selfie-rage in India. With most of its best-selling smartphones coming from the camera and music-centric category, Vivo has established a label of a ‘selfie smartphone maker’ for itself. Adding to the category of narcissism-inducing devices, the company recently launched the Vivo Y66 smartphone.

Does the Vivo Y66 have enough in it to convince power users to give a phone like this a shot? And will the phone get me to pout under the ‘Moonlight’ flash for a selfie? I try to answer the question through my review of the smartphone. More →
