This is thanks to its use of MediaTek's gaming-focused Helio G80 chipset paired with large 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

We also liked that it goes with a massive 5,000mAh battery with fast charging capability despite being a budget smartphone.

Today, we are finally done with our tests with this phone. So, let's see if this is the one for you.


Here's our full review.

Stylish for a gaming device

True to its monicker, the vivo Y20s [G] delivered what it promised, a good budget gaming performance.

This is thanks to its use of a decent chipset, large RAM, strong battery performance, and plenty of optimizations which the gaming experience is respectable for an affordable phone.

We also like that it has a neat design and an accurate fingerprint reader.

However, this might not be the device for you if you are in need of a higher resolution display, USB Type-C port, and better speaker quality. The competition is a bit stiff as well.

But, if gaming is your priority and you want to enjoy those games on an affordable vivo device, likely, the Y20s [G] is the one for you.
