Good news! The Vivo Y17 is now more affordable in the Philippines. Vivo gives the feature-packed, entry-level smartphone a P1,000 (around $19) price drop. It’s now just P10,999 ($212) instead of P11,999 ($231).

If you need a specs refresh, this phone is equipped with a sizeable 5,000mAh battery and relatively fast charging courtesy of its 18-watt fast wall adapter. You can charge it from zero to 100% in around 1 hour and 50 minutes.

The handset has a 6.35-inch notched screen with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 1,544 x 720 resolution. The notch houses a sharp 20-megapixel selfie camera.
