Vivo Y35 review: an affordable but limited 4G smartphone

This Vivo Y35 is equipped with a triple rear photo module consisting of a 50 Mpx wide-angle whose lens opens at f / 1.8, and macro and depth sensors of 2 Mpx each (f / 2, 4). Overall comparable equipment, for example, to that of the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G.

Main module: 50 megapixels, f/1.8

During the day, the result of the Vivo Y35 is correct, but not transcendent. The shot is slightly overexposed and lacks sharpness, as can be seen in the color patterns on a white background or the faces.

The photo of the Galaxy A23 is far from exceptional, but the rendering is a little sharper. The processing is a little more contrasted, which gives the impression of taking better advantage of the details of the scene. A glance at the map shows this.

At night, neither of the two smartphones can really pull out of the game. The photo on the left, however, seems a little more readable, probably thanks to the increase in ISO operated by the sensor. In particular, this makes it possible to better highlight certain elements such as the face on the banknote or the characters on the book.

The Samsung’s digital smoothing is a little more pronounced, which largely drops the level of detail. The Vivo Y35 takes a slight advantage, but these two references are clearly not designed for night photography.

To activate the full definition mode, go to the “More” tab in the settings of the photo application.

Alas, these 50 Mpx shots do not offer a large enough gain in detail to be recommended. They make it easier to crop the photo, but naturally weigh more heavily on the smartphone’s (admittedly generous) storage.

Front and video module

The smartphone has a 16-megapixel front sensor associated with a lens opening at f/2. It is possible to take some pretty convincing selfies when the light is plentiful. The set is quite detailed, even if the general color is still a little too pale. It’s much more complicated in the dark.

It is possible to film in Full HD at 30 fps both front and rear. We advise not to move too much, because the lack of electronic stabilization is quickly felt.
