The smartphone features a 5-inch display running at a resolution of 540x960pixels. It is disappointing that the screen doesn t even have an HD (720p) resolution, while its competitors priced in the same range do. At the heart of the Y53i runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core SoC paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage. A microSD card slot for further storage expansion is also present.

Armed with a 2,500mAh battery, the smartphone comes with connectivity options such as dual SIM card slots, 4G LTE with VoLTE support, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.

In the software department, the Vivo V53i runs on the two-generations-old Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is quite disappointing, especially when Android 8.0 Oreo has been released for over 7 months now. The smartphone is available via offline retail channels, but there is no word on online availability.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 which is also priced at Rs 7,999 for the base variant, comes with an HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, a better Snapdragon 450 SoC, along with a bigger 3,300mAh battery making it a value for money proposition.
