Ordinarily, I don't see Vivo as a smartphone manufacturer that cares much about low-cost mobile phones for users. When compiling this information, I was especially shocked to note that for seven months of 2019, Vivo only has a smartphone which cost just $1 less of $100. Now I know that some of us may have been searching for cheap Vivo phones and may have been disappointed. This list here is for you. Unfortunately, not many of the company’s phones came cheap but I was able to squeeze out just five.
This is the cheapest among all the Vivo phones released in March 2019. This phone is the lesser of two variants. I will not discuss the other one. This Y91C is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and it’s a 4G Android mobile device. It weighs 163 grams, a dual SIM phone, which is 6.22 inches large at the IPS LCD display. It has 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. The official price of the phone is $99. The rear camera is 13 MP while the selfie camera is 8 MP. One thing people love about this phone is the 4030 mAh battery. Click here to see a full review.
