One of the new entry-level smartphones to make its way to Kenya is the vivo Y15s. This phone is currently available in the country starting from Ksh 12,000. This makes it one of the cheapest smartphones from vivo that you can get in Kenya at the moment. It should be the perfect smartphone for anyone looking for their first device or just anyone looking for a new phone within this price range.
At Ksh 12,000, the Y15s will be competing with some good phones from Xiaomi, Tecno and Infinix. All these brands offer good phones within this range and the Y15s has to outshine them if it is to appeal to customers. Vivo has not been very vocal with most of its smartphones recently and only time will tell if this will work.
From the specifications, the vivo Y15s is not a bad smartphone. It does come with some competitive specs that will definitely make it worth looking at for anyone who wants a new smartphone within this price range.
