When I hear Vivo, I instantly think of options. Options to choose from a bunch of phones at every price point (except flagships, of course). But from budget phones to premium mid-rangers, Vivo provides a ton of options. And building on this is Vivo’s latest offerings, dubbed, the Vivo S1. Priced at Rs. 34690, it directly goes head to head against the likes of Samsung Galaxy M40 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. And to me, it looks like a good option in the Nepali market.
First off with the specs, the Vivo S1 is off to a strong start, with an Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P65 processor. Couple that with 6 GB RAM, and it means ample power. Its 6.38-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display comes as a pretty good package here. Complementing the processor is 128GB of onboard expandable storage. And you also get a beefy 4500 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.
Impressive, right? Good things continue for the Vivo S1 with its triple camera setup at the rear. The triple camera setup comprises of a 16 MP primary lens, an 8MP wide-angle lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. Also, its selfie game looks pretty good with a 32 MP camera upfront. We cannot comment on the actual quality of the photos right now, but it does promise a lot, at least on paper.
Vivo didn’t skimp out on sensors either, you get everything from the gyro to its in-display fingerprint sensor. I just hope, it’s not as bad as the ones on the Samsung Galaxy A50. The phone runs on Android 9 with FunTouch OS on top which is pretty standard for all Vivo phones. The only thing I can complain about is the use of a MicroUSB port!
Moving on, the phone will be available in Sea Wind Blue or Wave Blue colors and as already mentioned, the Vivo S1 is priced at Rs. 34,690. Furthermore, if you do choose to opt for the Vivo S1, you will get a one-time free screen damage replacement for 30 days (the offer is valid from July 30 to August 31 and does not cover liquid damage).
