vivo has launched a lot of good smartphones this year, but it’s time we take a look back at the vivo Y76 5G, a phone that was released late last year.
Recently, vivo announced a big price drop for the Y76 5G, dropping its price to just PHP 14,999. At its original SRP, the Y76 5G was already a good buy, but at this new price, it’s an even better deal!
So, why exactly is the Y76 5G worth getting? Well, it’s an all-in-one device that can capture your best moments through its great vlogging and photography capabilities, all while having strong performance and all-around usability.
Need more convincing? Here’s a rundown of the phone’s features that make it one of our favorite vlogging smartphones in its segment.
vivo touts the Y76 5G as a vloggers partner, and for good reason. Aside from having great cameras for taking videos, the Y76 5G packs three key features that make it perfect for vlogging.
The first one is the AI Video Editor. This feature creates stylish videos by identifying faces and scenes and splicing them into a new reel complete with a vlog template. Along with these smart features, the AI Editor also lets you cut or trim videos, as well as add music, photos, and more.
The AI Video Editor is an all-in-one solution for your vlog editing needs. With this, you won’t have to download other apps or transfer your files to a PC, making for hassle-free editing.
Another great vlogging feature of the Y76 5G is Dual View Video. This feature lets you record videos on both the front and rear cameras simultaneously. This is great if you want to show something with the rear cameras while recording your reaction. You can even customize the frame’s shape for a more creative video.
Finally, we have Electronic Image Stabilization or EIS for short. As the name implies, ES stabilizes your videos, meaning you can capture vlogs while walking without the footage being shaky. With this, you won’t even need a gimbal to record steady video.
With this combination of features, the Y76 5G is a great partner for budding vloggers who want to get started on their creative video ideas. Even seasoned creators can take this with them if they need a portable vlogging device in times when lugging around heavy equipment is not possible.
Videos aren’t the only way to capture moments; another way is through photos. In this regard, the Y76 5G does not disappoint thanks to its 50MP + 2MP + 2MP triple rear camera setup and its 16MP selfie shooter.
To start with, the 50MP main camera takes great photos in most scenarios.
This shooter also packs several features to enhance the photography experience. First is Eye Auto-Focus which tracks your subject’s eyes and focuses on them. With this, you won’t have to keep tapping the screen to focus on your subject.
It also features the Ultra Nightscape mode which automatically triggers in low light conditions. With this, you are guaranteed bright and vibrant images, even at nighttime.
Moving to the other two cameras, the pair of 2MP shooters also give you more creative shooting options. The macro camera lets you take creative close-up shots while the 2MP depth sensor helps capture portraits with a nice background blur effect.
Finally, the phone’s 16MP selfie shooter can capture quality selfies, even at night thanks to its Extreme Night Selfie feature.
The vivo Y76 5G features four cameras in total, and they all make for a great combo for photography. Though taking photos and videos aren’t the only things that the Y76 5G is good for.
Powering the Y76 5G is a MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G processor with 8GB RAM + 4GB Extended RAM. The Dimensity 700 is a capable processor for gaming and everyday productivity, and the extended RAM feature complements it well.
In case you’re unfamiliar, the extended RAM feature of the Y76 5G lets it “borrow” memory from the internal storage in certain scenarios. With this, you are guaranteed a fast and snappy experience, whether it’s scrolling through apps or playing your favorite MOBAs/shooters.
On top of its performance, the vivo Y76 5G, as its name implies, is a 5G-ready smartphone. Thanks to this, you can enjoy faster mobile data speeds, lower latency, and take advantage of the unlimited 5G offers of some telcos.
As a bonus, the phone packs a 4,100mAh battery with 44W flash charge. The battery should last most users for a day of use, but if a charge is needed, the phone won’t take long to fill up thanks to flash charge. With this, you’ll be able to get hours of use in just a few minutes of charging.
The vivo Y76 5G is also a well-designed smartphone. Yes, it looks great in its Cosmic Aurora, and Midnight Space colorways, but the Y76 5G also has a solid build quality that should last users for a long time.
On top of its good looks, the Y76 5G has a fairly large 6.58-inch FHD+ IPS display with a 90.6% screen-to-body ratio. Thanks to its size, high resolution, and slim bezels, the Y76 5G’s screen shouldn’t disappoint for your binge-watching needs.
