The new vivo Y100 smartphone is a great choice to keep you powered up and entertained throughout your day.

It has a large capacity and long-lasting 5,000mAh battery that supports 80W of vivo FlashCharge fast-charging technology. It also has a bright and large AMOLED display for watching your favorite Netflix series with stereo speakers and up to 300% volume!

These are five of my favorite features of this smartphone:

 

1. 80W vivo FlashCharge Fast Charging Technology

Before the vivo Y100, the 80W vivo FlashCharge technology was only found in more premium vivo smartphones like the V-Series and X-Series.

Now, this ultra-fast charging rate is already available at the more affordable price range of the vivo Y100.

Aside from the fast charging rate, this technology also incorporates battery health protection by keeping charging temperature within safe range called “Super Charge Pump” and overnight charging protection. The battery is guaranteed to last at least 4 years with good battery health.

 

2. 5000mAh Large Capacity Battery

Even though the vivo Y100 has 80W vivo FlashCharge, it doesn’t mean you’ll have to constantly recharge the device. It has a 5,000mAh large capacity battery that can last a long time.

According to vivo’s tests, it can continuously play YouTube videos for more than 16 hours!

Meanwhile, in my own experience in using the device, it usually has around 35% battery capacity left at night with my normal usage. Of course, more resource intensive tasks like gaming will use more power.

 

3. 120Hz AMOLED Display with 1200nits Brightness

If you love watching Netflix shows, the vivo Y100 has a treat for you with its large AMOLED display that supports 120Hz of screen refresh rate and up to 1200nits of brightness.

It’s bright even under bright sunlight outdoors and has vivid colors thanks to its AMOLED panel.

It has eye protection to reduce eye strain when watching videos or browsing social media feeds for a long time. There’s also a built-in under-display fingerprint scanner for security.

 

4. Stereo Speakers with 300% Volume

A good display is not enough for a complete multimedia experience. The vivo Y100 accompanies its large display with stereo speakers that can reach up to 300% volume!

The earpiece speaker serves as a stereo pair to the main bottom-firing loudspeaker resulting in a more immersive audio output.

If you prefer wearing earphones, the vivo Y100 also has Hi-Res audio certification.

 

5. Color Changing Photochromic Appearance

The vivo Y100 will also entertain you with its design. The Breeze Green color variant comes with a photochromic back panel that smoothly changes color to a deeper hue when exposed to bright sunlight.

Its Crystal Black color variant retains its color in different lighting situations but has 3D crystal texture.

Both variants come with a trendy flat design for the sides while the edges have a 2.5D curve for ergonomics. It also has IP54 dust and splash resistance.
