Vivo’s ultra-thin and lightweight design provides a comfortable and smooth grip. Lean into the new minimalism. It measures 164.3 x 76.1 x 8.3 mm and weighs 186g.  the handset is built using a glass front, plastic frame and plastic back. The handset is Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by) and waterproof (IP54, dust and splash resistant).

With such an impressive power display, you are guaranteed an excellent media consumption experience, whether watching videos, playing video games or scanning through your stack of photos. However, 1080p resolution would offer an even better viewing experience.

Performance of the Vivo Y17s
