Vivo Y30 128GB Price in Pakistan Cut by Rs 1,000; Now Available at a New Price of Rs 29,999

The 4GB+128GB edition of the Vivo Y30 received a price cut today. The phone came out in May this year, featured in Vivo’s low mid-tier category. But the new asking price still doesn’t make for an attractive value point. We’ll take a quick look at it and how it fares against the competition.

After a discount of Rs. 1000, the Vivo Y30 128GB now starts from Rs. 29,999 instead of Rs. 30,999. It runs on the two-year-old mediocre MediaTek Helio P35 processor (Vivo’s non-flagship phones rarely stand out for their performance.)

From the 5000 mAh battery that lacks any support for fast charging, to the generic HD+ display, the Vivo Y30’s feature set fails to impress. Vivo Y19 also starts from Rs. 29,999 and has an FHD+ resolution, 18W fast charging. Plus, a more powerful Helio P95 processor. Xiaomi’s Redmi 9 is available for Rs. 26,499 and offers a Full HD+ screen, 18W fast charging, and Helio G80 processor.

At a midrange Vivo mobile price tag, You’re looking at a plastic back, painted in mirror finished Emerald Black and Moonstone White colorways. On the front, the 6.47” display has a hole punch in the corner. If you’re not a fan of the pinholes or notches in your screen, the similarly-priced Infinix S1 Pro has an uninterrupted 1080p display -- the front camera is mounted on a pop-up module.

Inside, we have an 8MP selfie camera. The rear-camera array features a 13MP standard camera, a 120° 8MP ultra-wide, and a pair of 2MP bokeh and macro sensors. On paper, the camera array is serviceable enough but Vivo Y30 is yet another recycled model in a sea of them.
