Vivo Y28 5G: Specifications
The handset packs a MediaTek Dimensity 6020 Chipset under the hood. The phone runs FunTouch OS 13 based on Android 13. You get up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage that is expandable up to 1TB using a hybrid microSD card.
There is a dual camera setup on the back of the device. This includes a 50MP primary camera with f/1.8 Aperture and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. On the front, this one has an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The phone is backed by a 5000mAh battery with 15W Fast charging support. The phone comes with connectivity features like 5G SA/ NSA, Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi (2.4GHz, 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.1, GPS/GLONASS/QZSS/Galileo and USB Type-C.
Vivo Y28 5G vs Lava Storm 5G
The Vivo Y28 5G’s main competitor is the Lava Storm 5G. The Storm 5G comes at a price of Rs 13,499 for the 8GB + 128GB model which alone gives you more RAM than the base model of Y28 5G, that too for Rs 500 less. Next, the Storm 5G also gets you a better chipset along with a better display which has both higher resolution and a smoother 120hz refresh rate.
Aside from this, it also gets faster 33W fast charging. As for optics, the Lava handset has a 50MP main sensor plus 8MP ultra-wide dual rear camera setup along with a 16MP front camera. Once again, the secondary 8MP ultra-wide angle is far more useful and practical than the 2MP auxiliary sensor on the Vivo handset. By all means, we feel the Lava Storm 5G is a better value offering over the Vivo Y28 5G.
