A decade ago, an P11,000 mobile phone could only offer calls, messaging, internet access, and basic photography. Today, for the same amount of cash, one would get a phone with plenty of features—case in point are Vivo’s best-selling Y-series’ handsets.
Far from being just a basic phone—with the second cheapest price tag (P5,999 SRP) on the list—the Y11 offers a smooth experience with its 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM, as well as AI-powered 13MP main and 2MP depth cameras—all powered by a 5000mAh battery. With these features, along with its Agate Red and Mineral Blue colorways, it’s no surprise that the Y11 is the best-selling Vivo phone in Shopee and Lazada. Learn more: www.vivo.com/ph/products/y11
