What do you look for in a phone?
The definition of a good phone has changed over the years. Initially, anything with good battery life was worth it.
Nowadays, you need to have a good camera, design, display, and battery. There are not many phones that get you all of that in a single package, usually cutting corners with the cameras or the battery life.
Here’s where Vivo S1 comes in, it checks all the right boxes, all in a beautiful looking device.
Still not convinced? Read on as we explain how Vivo S1 stands above the rest.
Trendsetting Technology, A Style of Its Own with sleek and stylish design
Vivo S1 features a sleek and stylish design with two beautiful color options: Skyline Blue and Diamond Black. As the name suggests, Vivo has depicted patterns of the day and night sky in both colors. The diamond pattern etched on the back depicts the shining stars of the night sky, shimmering as it transitions from blue to purple when viewed from different angles.
Most phones in this price range come with the same type of gradient design but Vivo’s take on this idea makes the S1 unique. Targeting the youth, Vivo has kept S1’s color palette and design pattern very exciting.
32MP Front Camera, Capture A Clearer You
It’s 2019 and phone makers are giving a lot of attention to cameras. Vivo is no exception and has equipped the S1 with an impressive 32MP front camera, giving it one of the best selfie cameras in the mid-range category.
The best part is, you don’t have to worry about the camera hindering your view since it is neatly housed in a minute waterdrop notch.
Thanks to this, the S1 has a bezel-less full-screen display with no huge notches to disturb your view. Apart from clear images and precise details, you also get an impressive bundle of features like AI Face Beauty, lighting, AR Stickers, and AI filters while using the front camera.
In-Display Fingerprint Scanning, Unlock the Future
One of the reasons behind Vivo S1’s clean looking design is the fact that it has no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Vivo uses an in-display fingerprint sensor on the S1, being a pioneer in the technology. Features like this are usually reserved for flagship phones but not in this case.
Vivo has gone with a top of the line in-display fingerprint sensor which also features several animations for making things more fun.
Always on Super AMOLED Display with the smallest notch
A dull display on a stylish phone like this is a big no. Thankfully, Vivo thought the same. The S1 comes with a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED Halo FullView™ Display featuring a high screen to body ratio and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
What this means is that you get punchy colors with extra-deep blacks, making everything you watch or do on your phone a treat.
Vivo has even optimized this smartphone for gaming purposes. Having an AMOLED display, it doesn’t consume much power if you don’t have a lot of bright wallpapers on your phone. You can also customize the always-on display to make your phone stand out.
Latest Helio P65 Chipset with 6GB RAM & 128GB Storage
Moving on to the internals, the powerful mid-ranger runs on an octa-core Helio P65 processor with a 12nm design paired with 6 GB RAM and more than enough 128 GB memory. If you want more memory, you can always expand it via the dedicated SD card slot.
The combination of a powerful processor, exceptional RAM, and huge storage ensures smooth performance, not to mention being powerful enough for multitasking on the fly and gaming. This brings us to the next feature of the S1, the game mode.
Optimized for PUBG Mobile with Ultra-Game Mode
Who can resist a smartphone-optimized for PUBG? That’s exactly what you get with Vivo S1. The smartphone comes with an ultra-game mode designed for optimizing your gaming experience.
Anyone who plays PUBG knows how long it takes to load a level. With Vivo S1 you don’t have to wait for the level to load while you get bored. The special countdown floating window does the counting for you while you can do other tasks in the background.
The best part is, the ultra-game mode improves performance reducing frame-drop by up to 300%.
AI Triple Camera with a wide-angle lens
We have talked about the top of the line front camera but what about the rear camera for all the photography enthusiasts? Don’t worry! Vivo did not leave you guys out either.
Featuring the Sony IMX499 Camera Sensor the triple sensor rear camera allows the user to shoot with precision, accuracy, and clarity. This makes it the perfect mid-ranger for smartphone photography newbies. You can get that perfect shot thanks to its AI portrait framing which helps in composing the ideal snapshot.
Apart from the IMX499 sensor, it has an ultra-wide-angle sensor that can expand your field of view to 120 degrees for nature and panoramic photography.
4500mAh Battery with Dual-Engine Fast Charging
All these amazing features and a modest battery? That will be a bummer no? Unsurprisingly, Vivo has that covered too. The S1 comes with a huge 4500 mAh battery backed by 18W Dual-Engine Fast Charging technology.
Unlike other mid-range smartphones, you don’t have to carry a power bank with you even if you want to spend your day playing PUBG.
The long-lasting battery is truly a cherry on the top making every other feature worthwhile.
