The updated vivo Y33s smartphone uses a 6.51-inch HD+ screen, equipped with a Dimensity 700 processor, a rear 13MP main camera, a 2MP macro lens, and a front 8MP lens. Vivo Y33s has a built-in 5000mAh battery, supports 18W dual-engine flash charging, and is pre-installed with OriginOS Ocean, which is deeply customized based on the Android12 operating system. Judging from the parameter configuration, vivo Y33s will focus on battery life. As for the performance of the machine, after reading this review article, you will understand.
Appearance: Thin and light body+fashionable color, feel and appearance at the same time
The vivo Y33s uses a water drop screen design on the front and a gradient design on the back. The top of the vivo Y33s is the SIM card slot, and the bottom is the speaker, Type-C interface, and 3.5mm headphone jack from left to right. There are no extra buttons on one side of the fuselage, while the volume button and power button are distributed on the other side (Note: The side fingerprint button and the power button are combined into one).
vivo Y33s adopts a new surface texture process, which brings a delicate touch and creates a dazzling look and feel like a star diamond. The fuselage is available in three colors of blue, white and black that are comparable to trendy flagships. I tested the blue version, which has a fine-grained surface that feels quite comfortable in the hand.
Overall, I used the vivo Y33s for up to two weeks. The mobile phone gives me the feeling that it feels light and thin, the color is fashionable, and it has a good feel and high appearance in one, which makes people fall in love with it. The retention of the 3.5mm headphone jack allows me to wear wired headphones to immerse myself in the world of music in my leisure time.
Battery Life: 5000mAh battery, no problem for two days of normal use
vivo Y33s has a built-in 5000mAh large-capacity battery and supports 18W dual-engine flash charging. It is also equipped with energy protection technology (VEG), which not only ensures the smooth operation of the system and applications, but also opens up the processing strategy between the system and core resources, intelligent APP scheduling mechanism, network mechanism, task priority management mechanism, etc. To improve the energy efficiency of the whole machine, effectively reduce energy consumption, and allow large-scale applications to run more lastingly and smoothly. Next, let’s take a look at the strength of vivo Y33s in terms of battery life.
In terms of battery life, I tested the vivo Y33s for 5 hours. During the test, the phone system volume was turned off and the screen brightness was set to 150 nits, and WiFi and bluetooth were turned on. The test content includes 45 minutes of iQIYI video playback, 50 minutes of Tik Tok video playback, 50 minutes of QQ voice chat, 45 minutes of Weibo information browsing, 30 minutes of camera video recording, 60 minutes of high-frame mode “Honor of King”, and 20 minutes of Taobao Shopping App Home browse.
Judging from the test results, the vivo Y33s has 69% of the remaining power after the 5-hour test, and consumes 31% of the power in total. The battery life is excellent, and ordinary users have no problem with normal use for two days. Especially when browsing the Taobao APP part, the power consumption is only 2% in 20 minutes, which is also an excellent result. If you are a heavy user who never leaves your phone, the vivo Y33s with 5000mAh battery will not disappoint you in performance.
Performance: More than enough
The vivo Y33s is equipped with the Dimensity 700 chip, which is manufactured with a 7nm process and an 8-core CPU design, which is specifically composed of 2 large A76 cores + 6 small A55 cores. The core frequency of A76 is 2.2GHz, the core frequency of A55 is 2.0GHz, the GPU is Mali-G57 MC2, and the GPU frequency is 950MHz, supplemented by 8GB LPDDR4X and 128GB eMMC 5.1.
I turned on the performance mode (the path is: settings-battery-mode switch), and ran it. It was found that the AnTuTu score of the mobile phone was as high as 360,000 points, the Geekbench5 multi-core score was 1619, the single-core score was 529, and the 3D Mark score was 1198, all of which were in line with my expectations.
I originally thought that the performance of vivo Y33s was only sufficient, but its actual performance is better than I imagined, which is shown in the following two parts:
① Large memory: The vivo Y33s I tested is the 8GB RAM version. Usually 8GB RAM is the same as the memory capacity of flagship phones, but the memory capacity of vivo Y33s can actually be larger. With the help of memory fusion technology, vivo innovatively integrates RAM and ROM through algorithm optimization, and uses part of the idle ROM space for RAM operation. This allows the vivo Y33s with 8GB of memory to expand to 8GB+4GB, and the memory is equivalent to 12GB.
Larger memory means that more applications can be opened in the background, which is more convenient for consumers to use at any time. After I opened 20 apps on vivo Y33s, I didn’t encounter the phenomenon of stuck or app restarting at all. It can be seen that the large memory of vivo Y33s helps to improve the user experience.
② Play games freely: Considering that many consumers have the habit of buying mobile phones to play games. So I selected the two popular games “Honor of King” and “Game For Peace” to test the vivo Y33s, and used PerfDog to record the game frame rate.
The first is “Honor of King”, this game does not have high requirements on the hardware configuration of mobile phones. When the picture quality is set to HD, the resolution is high, and the frame rate is high, for vivo Y33s, it can be easily dealt with. Judging from the final game frame rate graph, vivo Y33s runs at 60fps at full frame. Even in the game scene of a large-scale team battle, there is no obvious frame drop phenomenon, and the whole process of the game running is very smooth and stable.
“Honor of King” frame rate performance
Next is “Game For Peace”, I set the game’s image quality to high-definition, the frame rate is high, and other special effects are fully enabled. Compared with “Honor of King”, the game “Game For Peace” has slightly higher requirements on the mobile phone processor, but the vivo Y33s still performs well, ensuring a smooth game experience. Judging from the PerfDog test results, the vivo Y33s can keep running smoothly in the game, and the number of frames is concentrated around 30fps, which is also the maximum number of game frames that the vivo Y33s can open under the current high-definition picture quality.
“Game For Peace” frame rate performance
In terms of heat dissipation that everyone cares about, the vivo Y33s uses a 11215mm2PGS graphite heat sink, which is 40% larger than the previous generation model. With thermal gel, high thermal conductivity copper foil, and Cooling Turbo intelligent thermal management system, the CPU junction temperature drops by 10°C.
I played “Honor of King” for 30 minutes at room temperature. The maximum temperature of the vivo Y33s back shell reached 39.7°C, and the average temperature was 36.9°C. The temperature control performance is still very good. It can be seen that the heat dissipation material of vivo Y33s still plays a great role.
Whether it is performance or playing games, the performance of vivo Y33s impresses me. To sum it up in one sentence, the experience of the flagship machine is excellent value for money among smartphones of the same price.
System UI: OriginOS Ocean brings intimate user experience
vivo Y33s is pre-installed with OriginOS Ocean, which is deeply customized based on the Android 12 operating system, bringing consumers a caring user experience. Let’s take a few examples to illustrate.
A good helper for protecting children: OriginOS Ocean has a built-in “Child Guard” function. Parents can use it to connect with their children with vivo Y33s and protect children and teenagers from using mobile phones in a healthy way. For example, when children go out to play, parents can check their children’s location through “Child Guard”. When a child uses a mobile phone, parents can also set the length of time that the child uses the mobile phone to ensure that the child uses the mobile phone without affecting the learning (open path: Settings – Healthy Use of Devices – Child Guard).
A little assistant who cares for the elderly: OriginOS Ocean considers the needs of the elderly, and has thoughtfully designed a simple mode. In this mode, the desktop and lock screen with a simple layout will be enabled, and larger system fonts will be displayed, which is convenient for the elderly to use vivo Y33s (opening path: Settings – Desktop, Lock Screen and Wallpaper – Simple Mode).
For the elderly who are sick and need to take medicine, consumers can set the medication time, drug name, dosage information and taking cycle for the elderly in advance through the “medicine component” in vivo Y33s. After setting, the atomic notification will remind the elderly to take medicine on time. After the elderly completes the behavior of taking medicine, he can punch in the record in the component (opening path: Desktop – Atomic Component – Health – Taking Medicine Punch).
In addition to “Child Guard” and “Easy Mode”, OriginOS Ocean also has functions such as one-click Wi-Fi connection, document de-shadowing, and emergency calling. They are not only practical, but also can bring convenience to people’s lives. After I used it, I really wish my phone could have the above functions.
After some experience, the biggest impression of OriginOS Ocean on vivo Y33s is that the user experience is great and practical. Basically, it has all the functions of mainstream mobile phones, such as “medicine component”, “sleep component” and other functions. As far as I know, it is unique to OriginOS Ocean.

The vivo Y33s is a dual-camera combination of a rear 13MP main camera and a 2MP macro camera. With the blessing of super night scene and HDR intelligent imaging, vivo Y33s can cope with various complex shooting scenes.
In the daytime scene, whether it is shooting distant buildings, lanterns, or nearby flowers, vivo Y33s has a good performance. The white balance is accurate, the picture quality is bright, and the color saturation is high, which is more pleasing to people’s eyes.
In the night scene, from a single color light to a variety of shoes, the vivo Y33s can faithfully restore the scene, so that the color is natural, and the picture is clear and not overexposed.
Overall, the camera performance of vivo Y33s is quite good. Whether it’s going out to take pictures during the day or taking pictures at a party at night, the vivo Y33s can handle it.
Whether it is appearance, configuration, battery life, system UI, or photography, vivo Y33s has a good performance. The large battery of 5000mAh and the low-power chip of Dimensity 700 make the vivo Y33s excellent in battery life. Ordinary people can use it for 2 days without any problem, and it is not an exaggeration to say that it is a “battery giant”.
The good user experience brought by OriginOS Ocean takes into account the two major groups of the elderly and children, making people see the humanized side of vivo Y33s. If you want to buy a mobile phone with a long battery life for the elderly and children, then vivo Y33s will be your ideal choice.
