Pros

  • Very good in typical usage scenario, with excellent night management (only 0.67% lost on average per night)
  • Decent autonomy when calling and using GPS on the go
  • Faster than average charging
  • Almost 6 hours of autonomy recovered after a 5-minute charging

Cons

  • Battery level collapsed after 10%
  • Low autonomy when streaming video
  • Charge efficiency below average

The Vivo Y76 5G earned a high global score with its small 4100 mAh battery. The device’s performance during our typical usage scenario was excellent, draining a very low current both during the day and at night in default settings.The nights were very well-managed, with only 0.67% lost on average. The performance during the on-the-go tests was also very good, especially when calling.
However, when the device was tested in calibrated mode, the autonomy was below average for most of our use cases, especially when the screen was on. Even at a relatively average screen brightness at 200 nits, the battery was consuming a lot of power.

The battery level collapsed after reaching 10%, meaning that the battery gauge is unreliable at the lower power levels. When the UI displayed 20%, the true battery capacity remaining was measured at 15.8%.
The Vivo Y76 5G’s charging performance was decent, being faster than the average of our database. The 44W charger recovers about 6 hours of autonomy after a 5-minute charge. However, the charge efficiency was poor, and the residual consumption of the charger itself when the device isn’t plugged in was quite high.
The efficiency, in terms of discharge current, was excellent, showing that the device is generally well-managed. However, streaming videos registered a high discharge current.
Compared with other devices in the Advanced segment ($200 to $399), the Vivo ranked above average thanks to its decent charging performance and its excellent efficiency. But its autonomy was slightly below average because of poor performance in calibrated tests and average performance in on-the-go tests.

Test Summary

About DXOMARK Battery tests: For scoring and analysis in our smartphone battery reviews, DXOMARK engineers perform a variety of objective tests over a week-long period both indoors and outdoors. (See our introductory and how we test articles for more details about our smartphone Battery protocol.)

How Autonomy score is composed

Autonomy score is composed of three performance sub-scores: Stationary, On the go, and Calibrated use cases. Each sub-score comprises the results of a comprehensive range of tests for measuring autonomy in all kinds of real-life scenarios.

A robot housed in a Faraday cage performs a set of touch-based user actions during what we call our “typical usage scenario” (TUS) — making calls, video streaming, etc. — 4 hours of active use over the course of a 16-hour period, plus 8 hours of “sleep.” The robot repeats this set of actions every day until the device runs out of power.

Using a smartphone on the go takes a toll on autonomy because of extra “hidden” demands, such as the continuous signaling associated with cellphone network selection, for example. DXOMARK Battery experts take the phone outdoors and perform a precisely defined set of activities while following the same three-hour travel itinerary (walking, taking the bus, the subway…) for each device

For this series of tests, the smartphone returns to the Faraday cage and our robots repeatedly perform actions linked to one specific use case (such as gaming, video streaming, etc.) at a time. Starting from an 80% charge, all devices are tested until they have expended at least 5% of their battery power.

How Charging score is composed

Charging is fully part of the overall battery experience. In some situations where autonomy is at a minimum, knowing how fast you can charge becomes a concern. The DXOMARK Battery charging score is composed of two sub-scores, (1) Full charge and (2) Quick boost.

Full charge tests assess the reliability of the battery power gauge; measure how long and how much power the battery takes to charge from zero to 80% capacity, from 80 to 100% as shown by the UI, and until an actual full charge.

With the phone at different charge levels (20%, 40%, 60%, 80%), Quick boost tests measure the amount of charge the battery receives after being plugged in for 5 minutes. The chart here compares the average autonomy gain from a quick 5-minute charge.

How Efficiency score is composed

The DXOMARK power efficiency score consists of two sub-scores, Charge up and Discharge rate, both of which combine data obtained during robot-based typical usage scenario, calibrated tests and charging evaluation, taking into consideration the device’s battery capacity. DXOMARK calculate the annual power consumption of the product, shown on below graph, which is representative of the overall efficiency during a charge and when in use.

Charge up

The charge up sub-score is a combination of four factors: the overall efficiency of a full charge, related to how much energy you need to fill up the battery compared to the energy that the battery can provide; the efficiency of the travel adapter when it comes to transferring power from an outlet to your phone; the residual consumption when your phone is fully charged and still plugged into the charger; and the residual consumption of the charger itself, when the smartphone is disconnected from it. The chart here below shows the overall efficiency of a full charge in %.

Discharge

The discharge subscore rates the speed of a battery’s discharge during a test, which is independent of the battery’s capacity. It is the ratio of a battery’s capacity divided by its autonomy. A small-capacity battery could have the same autonomy as a large-capacity battery, indicating that the device is well-optimized, with a low discharge rate.
