In case you’re looking for a new smartphone that won’t break the bank, Vivo has a couple of discounted phones listed on its online store.

Even better, you don’t have to go out of your house to buy any of them, as Vivo Philippines will deliver the phone to your address while most of the county remains in quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic.

You can save up to P1,000 (around $20) if you buy these Vivo Y series phones from the company’s official website,

  • Vivo Y19 (4GB RAM/128GB storage): P9,999 ($198) from P10,999 ($218)
  • Vivo Y12 (3GB RAM/64GB storage): P6,999 ($139) from P7,999 ($159)

You can also purchase them from Vivo’s authorized retailers on Lazada and Shopee.

To recap, the Vivo Y19 is a big-screen, big-battery phone with a somewhat-low price tag. A large, 6.53-inch FHD+ LCD’ a MediaTek Helio P65 processor with capable Mali-G52 graphics; and a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18-watt fast charging are some of its biggest attractions.

In our Y19 review, we said that “it’s designed to go the extra mile for the on-the-go, budget-conscious user.”

The Vivo Y12, on the other hand, is another budget handset that offers decent all-around performance and long battery life.

The phone’s headline features include a 6.35-inch HD+ screen, a triple-lens camera with a wide-angle lens, and a 5,000mAh battery backup that lasts days between charges and supports reverse charging to power other devices. It packs a MediaTek Helio P22 processor under the hood.
