vivo Y76 5G Unboxing and First Impressions

For the regular readers of this blog, you know that I don’t usually do phone reviews as much, so when vivo reached out to us and sent the vivo Y76 5G, I was quite excited as I’ve been reading a lot about this phone and was eager to discover why a lot of my friends are using vivo smartphones. 

The vivo Y76 5G is being marketed as a great vlogging device but judging from its box, I think even mobile gamers will find this phone very interesting.


I’ve been using this phone for the past week and so far I’ve been having a lot of fun with it.


So I hope you’d also enjoy reading our unboxing and first thoughts about  the vivo Y76 5G.

Unboxing: What’s in the box?


The vivo Y76 5G immediately stands out because of it comes in an exclusively-designed purple Mobile Legends box that features heroes Gusion and Guinevere, and that alone could capture a lot of attention from MLBB gamers.


If you are someone who keeps the boxes of their phones this would make a nice addition to your display cabinet. Now if you don’t like ML don’t fret as you can easily slide off the MLBB sleeve from the box to reveal the standard vivo packaging.

Inside the box you’ll find the phone unit, a free jelly case, sim tray ejector pin, a 44W fast charger, USB Type-C cable, and a pair of earphones with 3.5mm audio jack plug. Hooray for free earphones!


Unfortunately, our review unit didn’t come with any other Mobile Legend-themed accessories, but I do hope the retail unit includes even stickers or some other freebies to make it even more enticing.




Taking the phone out of its plastic sleeve, the first thing I noticed was how comfortably light it was. Featuring an Ultra Slim Design its ultra-slender body measures only 7.79mm and weighs a mere 175g, making it feel almost weightless. From the 2.8mm narrow frame to the 3D back cover, every detail is craftily designed to fit beautifully and comfortably in the palm of your hand.


Turning it around I was also mesmerized by its exquisitely designed back panel that could easily pass for a flagship design. Looking closer you’ll notice star-like patterns created by the glitter of the AG frosted rear surface cover. Its not only nice to look at but it actually helps keep fingerprint smudges away.

I have the Cosmic Aurora color which I think would be the better choice for fashionista’s who want to be noticed. It has a frosted finish and liquid crystal coating, that blends blue and orange perfectly into a radiant finish.


There’s also a Midnight Space option which has a sophisticated black frosted finish with a touch of glitter and glam, and a lustrous sheen. You don’t have to look to the skies to be mesmerized by the twinkling stars.  

Exploring the rest of the phone you’ll find the volume and power buttons on the right. The power button also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. The sim tray and mic are located on the top and you’ll find a loudspeaker, main mic, 3.5mm jack, and charging port at the bottom. The 4100mAh battery capacity supports 44W fast charging technology via the USB Type-C port and can re-charge the device to 70% of battery capacity in 30 minutes.


On the front, the vivo Y76 5G has a 6.58-inch display with a small notch that houses the selfie camera. It’s bright enough indoors and looks very sharp because of its FHD+ resolution.

As I mentioned earlier the vivo Y76 5G is designed for vlogging that is why it packs flagship-level camera specs and advanced features that can help you produce successful content. You get a 50MP main camera + 2MP Macro Camera + 2MP Bokeh Camera triple camera setup on the back and on the front you have a 16MP camera to shoot selfies.

For vloggers, the feature you should definitely master is Dual-video. This mode allows you to simultaneously use the front and rear camera when shooting videos. Once you are done shooting you can use the built in AI editor for faster and more convenient editing.  If you plan on shooting travel vlogs the Ultra Stable Video feature will keep you focused and steady while you are on the go.


Everyone wants to look good on videos and the vivo Y76 5G can get you glam selfies via its AI Face Beauty Algorithm that offers personalized options to refine and optimize your selfies as well as Smart Softlight Band to preview the fill light effect in real time.


Here are some initial photo samples we took using the vivo Y76 5G.

Rounding up the specs of this phone; you get an 8GB RAM + 4GB Extended RAM powered by MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor to ensure smooth performance and Multi-Turbo that should assist in running multiple apps heavy games with high graphics.  There’s even an Ultra Game Mode dashboard that displays performance parameters and helps you shift through different gaming modes. 

So far I’m really enjoying this phone, it looks nice, has good cameras and I haven’t encountered any problems when using is for my daily blogging needs.


If you are interested in the vivo Y76 5G, you can get it for only P14,999 (that’s a P2k price drop from its original price) and its available at all vivo stores and kiosks nationwide, vivo's E-Store, and online via official stores in Shopee and Lazada.
