Design and Display

Y73 smartphone comes with a 6.44 inch touchscreen AMOLED waterdrop-shaped notch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. It has an in-display fingerprint sensor for easy and fast access to your phone. The visuals are very immersive with a high pixel density of 408 ppi.

The smartphone has a front glass with an AG (Anti-glare) coating on Top. The back is a plastic panel with textured finish. The 170 gram light device has a 2.5D rounded frame for delightful grip. The phone is really slim and light which makes it easy and comfortable to hold the device all day. 

The Vivo Y73 smartphone is available in two different colors- Diamond flare and Roman Black from which the earlier one looks truly out-of-the-box. For the Vivo Y73 review, we have used the diamond flare, it makes a diamond structure’s radiant effect against the light.

The speaker, a USB type C port, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a microphone are provided at the bottom side. You get a power button and a volume rocker on the right side; the top left side is mounted with a sim card slot that has a microSD card slot.


The vivo Y73 is packed with a powerful triple rear camera with 64MP primary snapper with f/1.79 aperture, a 2MP macro sensor and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture each. The Y73 is capable of recording 4K video which is a rare find in smartphones of this segment. 

The primary rear camera is stocked with various modes like HDR, Live filter, beauty mode, time lapse, eye tracking etc. which allows you to get the best possible shots. The AI supported super night mode makes your nighttime photography experience to another level. Furthermore, the filters like a brand new city will help you perfectly capture every important moment of a night out with your friends.

The 16 MP front camera works very well in the daytime. It can be used to record 1080p videos. The selfies with the front camera can be enhanced with some of the extra modes available in the device including light filters, video face beauty and dual view video.

Battery and Software

Y73 phones are equipped with a non-removable 4000 mAh battery. The battery is not as large as we see in other phones but it is decent. It supports fast charging with a 33W flash charge feature. The company claims 64% battery refilling in just 30 minutes of charging however, it took about 40 to 45 minutes in our testing for Vivo Y73 review. It will take about one hour to charge it to its full capacity.  With a moderate usage, you can easily spend a day with a single charge.

The smartphone is based on Android 11 (Funtouch OS 11.1) operating system. In this advanced operating system the visuals and graphics are more appealing. The operating system is intuitive, smooth and it allows you to harness all of its power.


For better connectivity the smartphone has bluetooth 5.0 with aptX HD, LE and A2DP. There is wi-fi 802.11ac with dual band support. At the bottom of the phone, there is a Type-C 2.0 port for fast charging and data sharing. It supports GPS navigation, radio and a 3.5mm audio jack. 

The Vivo Y73 smartphone doesn’t support 5G network, rather it has a 4G LTE network. Getting a 5G ready phone won’t make any difference as 5G is not available in India. The calling experience was good and signal reception was also very good. We don’t have any issue with the signal testing for the Vivo Y73 review. However, the network connection depends on your location and cellular company.


The Vivo Y73 is powered with the MediaTek Helio G95 octa core processor with a Mali-
. The device is available in the pair of 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage which can further expand upto 1TB. The special feature in the device is the 3GB extension in the existing RAM. The increased RAM makes the app loading faster and multitasking easier. It is a bliss for the game lovers.

At the price of 20K you can expect upgraded processors like Dimensity. However Helio G95 also works well. You can enjoy even the graphics intensive games without any problem. You will not feel any lag or jitters in short sessions.
