While the Y53s 5G comes with a better refresh rate but has restrictions in some other sections, the Y53s 4G has a better camera but lacks 5g support. To understand it in more detail, let’s begin the review of Vivo Y53s 5g and 4g smartphones.

Vivo Y53s Review


  1. Both phones feature a 6.58 inches IPS LCD with 1080p resolution but become a different entity with the refresh rate.
  2. Android 11 is present on both devices, but they differ with custom interfaces.
  3. The best performance you get with the 5G variant comes with an 8nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 chipset, while 4G comes with a 12 nm MediaTek Helio G80 chipset.
  4. The 5G variant is different in that provides a dual camera, while the 4G offers a triple camera.
  5. Both phones have a 5000mAh battery, but differ in fast chargers.

Design and Display

The Vivo Y53s phones come in various color combinations. The brand has retained its uniqueness by providing some eye-catching designs. Whether it’s 5G or 4G, you get smooth colors on every phone. To elaborate this, you will have three colors black, blue, and silver in the 5G option. On the other hand, you will have two variants, black green, and blue-purple in the 4G option. Whichever you choose, you get a good layout on both.

On 5G, you’ll have a dual-camera board on the back, but on 4G, you’ll have a triple camera board. There is no difference with the fingerprint sensor because it is defined in the sidebar on both devices. You will see a small difference in the display section. The 5G model of the Vivo Y53s offers a 6.58 inches IPS LCD screen, while the 4G offers the same, but if you look closely you’ll see a big difference that separates the phones from each other.

If I talk about motion blur, there is a 90Hz refresh rate in the 5G variant, while on the other hand, you get the default 60Hz refresh rate in the 4G variant. So which one will you choose depends on your need. There is still more to know to decide before you buy. Both variants display a perfect 1080p resolution for a better visual experience. One negative point I can mention is its brightness. You have to adjust brightness on both phones.

If you are very aware of measurement, let me say that there is not much difference between the two variants. The Y53s 5G weighs 189g and 8.5mm thick sidebar, while the Y53s 4G weighs 190g and the sidebar displays 8.4mm thick. If you consider these features to be minor, you can move on to the other sections, where you will find the main differences.

Memory and Internal

Many smartphone lovers or especially gamers will decide instantly after reading this section. Although both phones come with a built-in Android 11 operating system, the custom interfaces are different on both sets. On the 5G, there is an OriginOS 1.0 interface that allows you to properly adjust your phone according to your request. But on 4G, it comes with the Funtouch 11.1 interface.

A phone differs according to its particular performance. A phone is always better with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. That’s what the 5G device offers 8nm – Snapdragon 480, but the 4G variant comes with the 12nm – MediaTek Helio G80. It depends on your usage, but if you continually work with your phone, choosing the 5G set would be a wise decision.

There is no difference with the processor as both devices render at most 2.0 GHz clock speed. Another main difference is its graphics unit. The Adreno 619 graphics unit offers a better visual experience on the 5G device while the Mali-G52 MC2 also does well on the 4G device. As it always requires us to get the best at a marginal cost, you get it in the 5G variant.

There are two variants in the Y53s 5G set. One is 8GB and 128GB and the other is 8GB and 256GB without a microSD card slot. On the other hand, in the Y53s 4G smartphone, there is only an 8GB and 128GB option with the freedom to expand storage via a dedicated microSD card slot.


This section is for photogenic people, many users love to capture the beauty of nature. For them, choosing a 4G device would be the best choice. Because the 5G device has a dual camera, while the 4G device comes with a triple camera. To work this out, there are 64MP main cameras and 2MP macro cameras on the 5G device. The Vivo Y53s 4g smartphone comes with a 64MP main camera, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor.

You may decide that you have a great range to take some beautiful portraits with your 4G device. Both cameras have an EIS gyro that allows you to record 1080p stabilized videos. If you are too addicted to taking selfies, then looking for a better camera is, of course, a good decision. The Y53s 5G has an 8 MP selfie camera, while there is a 16 MP selfie camera on the Y53s 4G device. Both side cameras can record 1080p videos. As far as the camera is concerned, you get a better one with the 4G device, while the 5G variant doesn’t hold the attention.

Battery and Others

It’s a little different, but it actually creates a significant impact on users. Both phones come with a Li-Po 5000mAh battery that lasts almost a full day after heavy use. The main difference here is the fast charger option. With the 5G device, an 18W fast charger will be shipped, but with the 4G device, you will have a much larger 33W fast charger. This certainly allows us to decide which one to buy. Based on your choice, the decision is yours. The Y53s 5G comes at $279 (Rs 20,000), while Y53s 4G is set at $310 (Rs 22, 999) approx.
