The vivo Y36 is not just a smartphone for casual gamers, it also has several useful features for aspiring content creators.
It has feature-packed camera systems for taking aesthetically pleasing pictures in various situations and flaunts an elegant design to match the content creator’s style. Let’s explore these features of the vivo Y36!
1. 50 Megapixel Main Camera with Supernight Algorithm
Number 1 on the list is the 50 Megapixel main camera of the vivo Y36 with Supernight Algorithm.
Its high resolution makes pictures look sharp and highly detailed. Meanwhile, the Supernight Algorithm uses AI to automatically enhance pictures especially during low-light situations.
I was surprised with the quality of low-light shots. Smartphones in this price range usually struggle when lighting is unfavorable but the Auto and Night modes of the vivo Y36 works really well.
2. Portrait Mode with Bokeh Flare Effect and Posture Guides
The vivo Y36 pairs its 50MP main camera with a 2MP secondary camera for a Portrait mode with bokeh flare effect.
It captures pleasing portraits with “DSLR-like” blurred backgrounds and turns light sources into beautiful bokeh. There are also several choices for the bokeh shapes like hearts, stars, and cherry blossoms.
Most vivo flagship smartphones have a posture guide and I’m glad to see it in the vivo Y36 too. It can be found beside the Beauty feature in Portrait mode and contains different poses for a more diverse set of pictures.
3. 16 Megapixel Selfie Camera with Portrait Light Effect
On the front of the vivo Y36 is a 16 Megapixel punch-hole selfie camera that supports Portrait lighting effect.
It’s like a set of customizable studio lights in your pocket for better-looking selfies with a creative flare. You can go with natural, stereo lights, rainbow, or artistic monochrome.
The selfie camera is also capable of full HD video recording for making TikTok videos and other content.
4. 256GB of Storage Space
One feature that’s often overlooked when choosing a smartphone is storage space. For content creators, having plenty of storage is a necessity so you don’t have to constantly delete pictures and videos.
The vivo Y36 answers this concern with a massive 256GB of internal storage!
There’s also a microSD memory card slot that supports up to 1TB of additional storage. Many smartphones above this price range already lack this capability.
5. Slim and Elegant Design
To complete this list, the vivo Y36 flaunts a slim and elegant design with 2.5D curved edges for both the back and front glass panel.
It uses a flat frame that follows current trends in smartphone design and the back panel has vivo’s signature sparkly Fluorite glass appearance. These result in a premium overall vibe.
I also like the subtle rainbow effect surrounding the camera island of the vivo Y36.
