With our frenzied, fast-paced lifestyle, speed is definitely the name of the game. We need to do things quickly, get to places fast, and accomplish tasks in as little time as possible so we can do and be more. And because these days, our smartphones are our go-to partner when it comes to fulfilling our day-to-day tasks, we need them to be able to keep up and take on everything we throw at them.
vivo Philippines has launched its latest Y series device that can meet those demands thanks to its all-day 5000mAh battery, quick-as-a-flash charging capabilities, and big storage.
Aside from its beefy hardware, the new vivo Y35 balances substance and style with its chic and sleek looks—whether in its Dawn Gold or Agate Black colorway.
vivo is also offering the Y35 with freebies for online purchases, as well as installment plans via credit card and Home Credit.
What’s in the box?
Inside the minimalist white box of the Y35 are the unit itself, a USB cable and 44W Fast Charge power adapter, a clear phone case, a SIM eject tool, and documentation (quick start guide and warranty card).
The vivo Y35 is svelte at 8.28mm. Its 2.5D curvature—meaning the display has a slight curvature toward its edges—makes the phone nice and easy to hold. Housed in a waterdrop notch is the 16-megapixel front camera.
On the right edge of the phone are the easy-to-reach power button/fingerprint scanner and volume keys, while the left edge is kept clean.
The bottom edge of the Y35 is quite busy: there’s a 3.5mm jack, microphone, USB Type-C port, and speaker.
Up top is a tray for two nano SIM cards and one microSD card.
At the back is the camera bump that houses the 50MP main rear camera, 2MP depth, 2MP macro camera, and flash.
Strike battery worries off the list
Worried about your phone running out of battery while you’re out and about doing your errands and finishing your tasks? The vivo Y35’s large 5000mAh battery with AI power saving technology keeps you going for hours at a stretch. You can even squeeze in time for entertainment during your break or downtime.
The battery supports 44W fast charging, which means you get up to a suitable amount of juice much quicker. After draining the battery, we charged the phone and was able to regain 30% in 15 minutes. After 30 minutes of charging, battery power was up to 70%. Now that’s definitely quick as a flash!
Bigger RAM, bigger storage
The phone’s 256GB built-in ROM means you can keep and enjoy all your favorite photos, videos, and apps in your phone without fear of running out of memory. You can even pop in a 1TB microSD card to further expand the storage.
Think those tons of files on your phone should be a cause for concern? Don’t fret. The vivo Y35 comes with a huge 8GB RAM and is also the first in vivo’s Y series to have an 8GB extended RAM—the top in the industry! This converts 8GB of idle space into additional RAM for a total of 16GB. We tried multitasking with this phone, and switching between several apps was definitely smooth.
No slowing down
The vivo Y35 is powered by Qualcomm’s 6nm Snapdragon 680 chipset, which is designed to deliver strong performance while conserving power. You can enjoy watching and streaming videos, playing games, taking brilliant photos, and listening to rich audio without the phone bogging down on the performance front.
Helping make this phone faster is Multi-Turbo 5.5, which intelligently optimizes power to increase smoothness and stability, especially when you’re playing games.
And speaking of, the vivo Y35 comes with Ultra Game Mode, which enhances your gaming experience. In this mode, you can block notifications during gameplay, improve the balance between the phone’s temperature and game performance, and enable game sound quality and sound effects, among others.
Capture beauty any time of day
Creating beautiful, engaging content is easy with the vivo Y35 courtesy of the phone’s triple camera setup: 50MP f/1.8 main camera, 2MP f/2.4 bokeh, and 2MP f/2.4 macro cameras. The large sensor of the main camera means you’ll get vivid shots even at night. Even selfies turn out nice in low light situations with the 16MP f/2.0 selfie shooter with noise reduction algorithm and Aura Screen Light. Get creative and express yourself with tons of scene modes. Check out some of the photos we took below:
View the photos and videos you captured, stream movies and shows, and play games on the phone’s 6.58-inch FHD+ 90Hz screen. It’s definitely a delight catching up on all your favorite multimedia content on this big, vibrant screen. To complete the immersive experience, vivo fitted the device with an updated audio booster mode so you can enjoy greater audio details even in higher volume.
And the icing on the cake? The vivo Y35 is a beautiful thin (8.28mm) and light (188g) device that won’t weigh you down. Aside from being comfortable to hold—courtesy of the 2.5D body design—the texture of the phone’s back panel also makes it resistant to scratches and fingerprints.
Pricing and availability
You get all of these features in a phone that’s priced at just P14,999. Talk about bang for your buck, right? Well, owning a vivo Y35 is made even easier on the pocket with the installment plans available via credit card (6 or 12 months) and Home Credit (up to 18 months).
The vivo Y35 is now available through the vivo website, Lazada, Shopee, and Tiktok Shop, and at all vivo concept stores and kiosks nationwide starting today, September 10. Those who purchase online will get a free DITO SIM card and a pair of Voguard TWS earbuds (limited stocks applies).
