Vivo V27L:  form and function
Vivo V27L....Design plus beauty

The Vivo Y27L is a mean combo of design beauty and functionality beast

December 7 2015: The recently launched Vivo Y27L combines beauty with functionality. Design-wise, this device looks classy with a plastic frame and metal casing at the rear.  Because of the metal body, this phone won’t seem too light in hands, but it has got a comfortable grip and sturdy look. It weighs 137 grams with 6.99 mm thickness.
The Vivo Y27L comes with an 8 megapixels primary and a 2 megapixels secondary camera. . We think that Vivo could have increased the front camera resolution, as the selfie-crazed world needs high resolution. Even though less in megapixels, Vivo has incorporated interesting features like the palm activated self-timer, which let you conveniently take selfies by recognizing your palm in 3 seconds. There is also the face beautification and slimming option to make you look thin!  The primary camera too comes with a few editing features such as bokeh mode (blurring the out of focus parts), children mode, etc.
For music lovers, this smartphone comes with a proprietary Hi-Fi chipset that claims to play clear and detailed audio quality. We tried playing a few tunes and found that the sound quality is quite loud and crisp.
Moving on to the other technical specs, the Vivo Y27L runs on 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor with 1 GB RAM. It is powered by Android KitKat 4.4 and Vivo has topped it up with its own GUI, Funtouch OS. The Y27L is a dual-sim smartphone with support for 4G connectivity. It comes with a 16 GB internal memory, expandable up to 128GB.
At an asking price of Rs. 12,980, we believe it’s a good buy just for the perfect mix of metal and plastic, style and performance.
