From our observation, we liked that Vivo used metal here compared to the plastic material found with V5 and V5 Lite. However, it doesn't feel as solid when you pit it against the other metal clad phones including their very own Y55.
Design is safe, build is decent, but not that solid
Design-wise, it still has that HTC inspired aesthetics. It doesn't have the flashy looks compared to higher-end phones as Vivo kept it simple with the Y53. As a result, it looks simple and easy on the eyes. It also has decent paint finish, proper curves, good 7.64 mm slimness, and non-protruding main cameras. The black border bezel on the screen is thicker than our liking though.
