At first, I was satisfied, but then, features that were normally in an androis phone aren't accessible with the layered OS Funtouch OS. Features like disabling pre-installed apps, moving apps from Phone Storage to SD Card or making the SD card the default storage. The customer service is also disappointing as they took 4 weeks before they answered my questions about the features i just talked about and they just told me to go to official service centers FOR MY INQUIRY ABOUT FEATURES. My phone is not broken, I just wanted to know where did the usual android features even my very very old Samsung phone in Kitkat OS even had went.
In conclusion, my main problems about the Y53 Vivo are,
1. Due to the layered OS, you will surely not be able to move or make your SD card default for your apps. You will surely have a problem because it indeed has 8GB ROM, but pre-installed and system apps will take atleast 3-4GB.
2. You cannot disable pre-installed apps to save space. I remember having the Disable button in Google play store pre-installed apps but apperantly in this phone it only has Update and Open, no disable, you can only hide the app from sight but its still there eating space.
3. Vivo customer service will either respond very late or just tell you to go talk to their service centers where the Vivo phones are usually repaired.
hmmm, 13 Jul 2018Does this phone lagged when files are full ? Yes, especially if you download a lot of games already. One of the reasons why it will lag because usually people used to close the application by pressing the home key instead of using the back button. Also make sure to close unwanted apps if not in used - Tech support here.
Lock screen apps that I installed in phone doesn't function properly. I'm so disappointed.
Y53 just got updated. And sad to say battery drains quickly. Please fix the issue VIVO. Thank you!
I use vivo y53......its good but mya pic always crash..... And i cant transfer my app in to my sd card.......
How to move an app from internal to sdcard, or how to download an app that will go in the sdcard?
The phone is very nice, smooth in different games but the new version of Funtouch OS Android causing me problem because my phone is now fastly draining the percentage of the battery, Vivo team should fix this ASAP!
Zack, 22 Jul 2018Hi. I have used my vivo y53 for 1 year and 2 months. In particular this is a very good phone i... moreyou are right bro i also have y53 it's a very good gaming phone and it has a great camera
Hi. I have used my vivo y53 for 1 year and 2 months. In particular this is a very good phone in its price range. Fully charge battery with normal usge can last 8++ hours. Gaming might last for 4++ hours (im playing pubg using this phone)
Camera is ok not that bad. Heating is not a major problem. And 16 gb internal storage is enough for me (with 32gb sdcard). UI is so good its run smooth on 60fps (maybe). There is no lagging if could manage your apps and file properly.
For those who had the storage issues, i recommend u guys to install ES FILE EXPLORER. Go watch utube for tutorial. This apps helps me manage my storage. If it doesn't work, backup what's important and factory reset your y53. Everything will settle.
I bought this phone for RM599 (Ringgit Malaysia) which is in budget Price.
After all im satisfied. I think this phone might last for another 2 years.
