Young Filipinos nowadays are not afraid of expressing their feelings and sharing it with their friends. We see how frequently they share stories online and offline, and they often use their smartphones to document their daily lives. With the Vivo Y55, we kept that behavior in mind, and made sure that we deliver a device that not only keeps up with their multi-tasking demands, but also provides useful features that help them elevate their selfie experience.
Vivo Y55 special features:
Smart Screen Flash technology – this function automatically switches on in dark conditions so that your face looks brighter and astonishing when taking selfies. Generate ready to test that brilliant selfies even at night.
Smart Split 2.0 – a special feature from its previous Vivo smartphone, now retained and upgraded for the Y55 to back up even more applications running. If you are watching a video then a text message comes in, usually what you will do is pause the video player, go to SMS center then read and reply to the text message. But with Smart Split 2.0, just click the screen once while the video is being played, it will split the screen. You can even respond to the text messages without interrupting your video on the other side.
