The battery capacity of X5Max is 2000 and Y22 carries a capacity of 1900 mAh, but the Y22 has an option of removable battery, but not the X5Max. So if you look at the price tag, the battery capacity as well as its elasticity both sound better in Y22 rather than the X5Max, and if you go searching for user experience, you are most likely going to get the same response.


The Screen size of the X5Max is 5.50 and Y22 is 4.50, both with Capacitive touchscreen. The former has a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels and the latter of 480x854 pixels. Yes, you get a bigger display in the X5Max in comparison to Y22, but if you aren't particular about that little difference, Y22 carries no less weightage than the other one as it gives the same clarity in displaying your stuff.


While X5Max has a processor of 1.7GHz octa-core of Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, the Y22 has a 1.3GHz quad-core processor from MediaTek. The first one carries 2GB RAM and the second one comes with 1GB.

The X5Max runs on Android 4.4.4 while Y22 is on the 4.2 version along with a Funtouch 2.0 Skin on the former. Both have support for Java.


Both the phones have the Standard Wi-Fi support, along with GPS and Bluetooth, the Y22 model carries a bluetooth version v4.00. X5Max doesn't have the FM facility but the Y22 model does. Both the models have Micro-USB ports. There again you get better features in Y22, rather than in X5Max.

Both the phones have dual SIM facility and in both of them the 1st SIM slot is for Micro and the 2nd one for Nano. While X5Max supports both GSM and CDMA, Y22 supports only GSM ones. Now that can be really a deciding actor, in respect of your necessity, and here X5Max may stand ahead of the other and can show a reason to tag it in a higher price range.

Other Features

Regarding the other features both the phones have Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor, but only X5Max has Gyroscope but not the Y22 model.

Vivo Y22_01


X5Max would be available in India with a price tag around Rs. 30,499 and Y22 would be available within the price range of Rs 10000.

Pros: of X5Max

The battery has very low capacity. Though it has Dual SIM facility but the dual SIM and SD card are not working at the same time. The price tag is too high, a range below 18,000.00 or 20,000 would have been better to suit its performance.

Vivo Y22_02.1

Pros of Y22

Very good user rating with quite good performance record. Moreover the price range suits the specs and features.


One drawback is that a newer version of Android Kitkat or lollipop would have set it all right.
