Battery convenience and fast charging
A big battery is something all categories of users can benefit from. Vivo has somehow managed to make room for a capacious 5000mAh power unit within the light and compact U10 body. The beefy capacity ensures that you can engage in extended gaming sessions or watch videos without any battery anxiety whatsoever.
Moreover, the U10 supports vivo’s safe and fast 18W charging and the required fast charger is bundled in the box! This kind of battery convenience isn’t easy to come by in the sub 15K price segment and augments the vivo U10 practical usage experience many folds.
AI Triple Rear Cameras

The AI-enabled camera software is smart and can deftly understand tricky lighting. As a result, the U10 can effortlessly capture amazing shots with well-balanced colors and wide dynamic range.
The wide-angle sensor is ideal for shooting landscape and artistic macro shots with wide backdrop. The third depth sensor enables U10 to accurately differentiate image subject from background for subtle bokeh effect.
Elegant design complemented by an immersive display
Design is one aspect that is often overlooked in phones targeting the online buyers. This, however, isn’t the case with the U10. vivo uses an attractive gradient glass-finish body that’s compact, light and extremely comfortable to operate. Buyers can choose between two attractive colors – Thunder Black and Electric Blue.
The fingerprint sensor on the back is exactly where our index finger naturally rests, and the triple cameras are highlighted with a golden accent. On the front, you will find a mesmerizing and sharp 6.35-inch screen that runs almost edge-to-edge. The well-calibrated and immersive screen makes day-to-day usage very pleasant.
Fingerprint unlock and Face Access
The U10 also benefits from extremely reliable biometric unlock mechanisms. The capacitive fingerprint sensor on the rear can instantly unlock the phone and works consistently almost every time. vivo also adds a convenient face unlock that ensures that you can quickly unlock your phone by just pressing the power key and looking at it.
These highlights explain why vivo U10 is a great buy in the sub-12K category. The phone offers premium, uncompromised experience and the attention vivo pays to subtle details is commendable.
