Vivo has managed to make its U10 standout among other budget smartphones. The smartphone has diagonal lines with a beautiful two-tone hue of purple and blue. Depending on the light hitting the phone's surface, the hues can change.

The phone doesn't seem to be heavy at 190.5g with its 5,000mAh battery. But the phone looks quite boxy since it is a bit thick at 8.9mm and doesn't come with curved edges.

The smartphone has diagonal lines with a beautiful two-tone hue of purple and blue.

In terms of ports and controls, the phone has a conventional placement. But it also means that it doesn't come with Type-C sockets like other budget phones but the old micro-USB interface.

On the back of the phone, you can see the triple camera setup with a dual-LED flash, highlighted by golden edges. The fingerprint reader works wonderfully and can easily be reached. Meanwhile, the face unlock also works like a charm. While the Vivo U10 provides an excellent grip, its rear panel can attract fingerprints.

Vivo U10 price in India is Rs 8,990 if you want to buy the 3GB RAM one, while the 4GB one costs Rs 10,990.

On the front, there is a dewdrop notch with a 6.35-inch screen. The display quality is OK for its price. However, the disappointing part is the phone's poor palm rejection, leading to videos or apps exiting getting paused inadvertently, especially when you held the phone in landscape orientation.

The Vivo U10 comes with a-triple-camera setup, 13MP, 8MP wide-angle-sensor, and 2MP depth-sensing unit. There is also an AI Beauty for those who like to take photos of themselves. For selfies, the smartphone has an 8MP sensor on the front.

The photo quality is just acceptable.

The phone has octa-core Snapdragon 665 SoC from Qualcomm. The phone comes with 4GB RAM or 3GB RAM and a storage of 32GB or 64GB.

Vivo U10 price in India is Rs 8,990 if you want to buy the 3GB RAM one, while the Vivo 1916 4GB variant costs Rs 10,990.
