Cash Price point assumption for the Vivo Y52 5G
As stated in the beginning, the Vivo Y52 5G will fall under the entry level smartphone market. Meaning the Vivo Y52 5G was made specifically for smartphone users that do not have much money to spend on a smartphone.

Vivo Y20 VS Vivo Y52 5G
The main differences between the Vivo Y20 and the Vivo Y52 5G are the following:
- Size – The Vivo Y52 5G is a few 0,07 inches bigger than the Vivo Y20.
- Chipsets – Both smartphones have totally different chipset makes. However, the Vivo Y52 5G has 5G network capabilities while the Vivo Y20 does not have 5G network capabilities.
- Rear Camera – Both smartphones’ rear camera layout look totally different in terms of their camera lenses size and positioned. With the Vivo Y20’s rear camera layout you can see all three lenses at the same size and straight in a line. With the Vivo Y52 5G’s rear camera layout you see a different approach. It has two big camera lenses that are bigger than the Vivo Y20’s camera lenses and one small camera lens close to the flash. Besides the layout, the Vivo Y52 5G’s rear camera lens has more megapixels than the Vivo Y20’s rear camera lens. Meaning the Vivo Y52 5G will take better photos and videos as compared to the Vivo Y20.
- Storage – The Vivo Y52 5G has double storage memory size on board as compared to the Vivo Y20 on board storage memory size. Meaning the Vivo Y52 5G will be able to store more data and information as compared to the Vivo Y20.
Overall: There are similarities between the Vivo Y20 and the Vivo Y52 5G. However, when comparing all their specs against each other, everyone will agree that the Vivo Y52 5G wins hands down and will be more preferred by users to purchase. Unless we talk about cash price. The Vivo Y20 is way cheaper compared to the Vivo Y52 5G’s cash price. So do not count the Vivo Y20 out. Vivo Y20 may satisfy users that only have a smartphone budget not more than R3000 and will still receive good specs. Like I said, they have similarities, but Vivo Y52 5G wins in specs.
The Vivo Y52 5G is quite an impressive smartphone in the entry level category. It comes with good improvements when comparing with the previous Vivo Y series smartphones that is available in South Africa.
I feel the Vivo Y52 5G will stand out more if it improved its front camera specs and maybe thrown in a smartphone color the other competitors do not have in their entry level smartphones. Many entry level smartphones currently have similar specs. Thus, the Vivo Y52 5G might have though competition to sell this smartphone depending on their competition currently in the South African market.
Rest, the Vivo Y52 5G is a good smartphone in my book and is a smartphone low-budget users can look at. But, the main question of course is:
Does the Vivo Y52 5G smartphone fall under your smartphone criteria?
