Vivo S1 Review

Vivo as of late propelled the Vivo Z1 Pro (Review) in India and estimated it great. This cell phone figured out how to passage very well when we looked into it. Presently, the Chinese producer has propelled one more cell phone evaluated just somewhat higher, named the Vivo S1. This is a piece of the new S arrangement which represents Style. The Vivo S1 is sharp without a doubt, however does it have the exhibition to back its looks? We test it to discover.

Vivo S1 plan

Vivo cell phones are normally smooth and all around planned, and this one is no exemption. The Vivo S1 sports a 6.38-inch show with a little dewdrop-style indent at the top. Vivo has settled on an AMOLED board, and the Vivo S1 sports an in-show unique mark scanner. The presentation has dainty bezels on the sides yet the base jawline is nearly thicker.

The Vivo S1 is accessible in two hues, Diamond Black and Skyline Blue and we had the Diamond Black unit for this audit. It has a cover back with a striking precious stone example structure and an angle shading wrap up. Contingent upon how the light hits the back board, the precious stone examples rise, which looks appealing.

In any case, we aren’t a gigantic enthusiast of the material that the back board of the Vivo S1 is made of, as it grabs scratches effectively. We would have favored Corning Gorilla Glass, as observed on the Redmi Note 7 Pro ₹ 14,179 (Review). The Vivo S1 has a triple camera module which distends marginally however has a metal edge around it which should spare it from getting scratched.

Vivo has picked a plastic edge that is adjusted which makes the cell phone agreeable to hold in the hand. The back does not meet the casing consistently, and you can feel unpleasant edges when holding the telephone. Vivo has situated the power catch to one side alongside the volume catches, and they are for the most part simple to reach. The Vivo S1 additionally has a devoted Google Assistant catch simply like the one on the Vivo Z1 Pro.

We were disillusioned with the utilization of a Micro-USB port on the Vivo S1, taking into account that most different cell phones at this value point have moved to USB Type-C. The Micro-USB port is situated at the base alongside the amplifier and the 3.5mm earphone jack, while the SIM plate is on the left side.

Vivo S1 details and programming

The Vivo S1 is the first cell phone in India to be fueled by the new MediaTek Helio P65 SoC. The Helio P65 is a mid-run processor dependent on a 12nm procedure. It has a couple of ARM Cortex-A75 centers timed at 2GHz, and six Cortex-A55 centers timed at 1.7GHz. For designs, it has a Mali-G52 coordinated GPU.

Vivo has propelled three variations of the Vivo S1 in India: the section level one with 4GB of RAM and128GB of capacity; another with 6GB of RAM yet 64GB of capacity; and the top-end one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of capacity. These variations are estimated at Rs. 17,990, Rs. 18,990 and Rs. 19,990 individually. We had the top variation in for audit and it had near 100GB of capacity accessible out of the case. The valuing of the Vivo S1 pits it straightforwardly against incredible telephones, for example, the Realme X (Review) and the Oppo K3 (Review).

The Vivo S1 is a double SIM gadget and has two Nano-SIM spaces just as a devoted microSD card opening. Availability alternatives on the Vivo S1 incorporate Bluetooth 5, double band Wi-Fi, GPS, FM radio, double 4G VoLTE, and the typical sensors. The Vivo S1 packs in a 4500mAh battery and you get a 18W quick charger in the case.

The Vivo S1 runs Funtouch OS over Android 9 Pie, which is intensely tweaked. On the off chance that you have utilized a Vivo cell phone before, it won’t take long for you to discover your way around the gadget. You can peruse in insight regarding Funtouch OS in our Vivo Y17 audit. First off, there is no application cabinet and all application symbols are arranged on the home screens. Funtouch has an iOS-like Command Center which needs a swipe up from the base of the screen to get to. This is the careful inverse activity contrasted with other Android cell phones and could be irritating to certain individuals.

Vivo installs a considerable lot of bloatware on the gadget, and we saw DailyHunt, Helo, Facebook, Gaana, Amazon Shopping, PhonePe, Paytm, and a couple of different applications preinstalled. Fortunately, this telephone did not have a warning spam issue like the Oppo A9 (Review) we as of late looked into. Vivo additionally has its very own application store called the V-Appstore.

Vivo S1 execution, battery life, and cameras

The MediaTek Helio P65 SoC fueling the Vivo S1 works admirably and you won’t notice slack or stammer doing everyday assignments. This cell phone rushes to dispatch applications and can run most applications and games out there on the Google Play Store. We never needed to sit tight unreasonably long for an application to open. It additionally oversees inactive battery channel well, and as far as we can tell, the Vivo S1 did not lose a lot of its charge when sitting inert. Performing various tasks was very simple considering we had the 6GB RAM variation of the gadget. The telephone never truly needed to close applications running out of sight.

The AMOLED board on the Vivo S1 had great survey points and was brilliant enough to be readable outside. In any case, the base terminating speaker isn’t that uproarious, causing the Vivo S1 to miss the mark regarding being a decent gadget to devour content on. We likewise tried the in-show unique mark scanner just as the face acknowledgment highlight on this gadget. The in-show scanner rushes to check a finger and open the cell phone, and once in a while required a subsequent endeavor. Face Unlock isn’t the most secure method for opening the cell phone, however it is brisk and helpful.

Vivo S1 figured out how to check 146,142 in AnTuTu benchmark which wasn’t essentially higher than the 145,999 scored by the Oppo A9. The Vivo S1 oversaw 1,853 and 6,034 in Geekbench 4’s single-center and multi-center tests individually. In illustrations benchmarks, the cell phone scored 36fps in GFXBench T-Rex and 12fps in GFXBench Manhattan 3.1.

PUBG Mobile kept running at the medium preset on the Vivo S1 with the illustrations set to Balanced and the casing rate set to Medium. We played the game for 20 minutes which caused the telephone to get warm to the touch. We likewise saw a 5 percent battery drop subsequent to gaming for that long.

The Vivo S1 conveys great battery life and we could continue for about multi day and a half on a solitary charge. During this cycle, we ran every one of our benchmarks, took several camera tests, and had a functioning WhatsApp account on the gadget. In our HD video circle test, the cell phone figured out how to keep going for 16 hours and 38 minutes. We put the provided charger under serious scrutiny and it figured out how to charge the battery to 34 percent in 30 minutes and 65 percent in 60 minutes.

Vivo has decided on a triple camera arrangement on the back of the Vivo S1. This comprises of a 16-megapixel essential camera with a f/1.78 gap, a 8-megapixel ultra-wide-edge camera with a f/2.2 gap, and a 2-megapixel profundity sensor with a f/2.4 gap. At the front, this telephone has a 32-megapixel selfie shooter with a f/2.0 opening.

The camera application is like what we’ve seen on the Vivo Z1 Pro and has different modes to browse. It has brisk flips for HDR, Live Photo, Filters, gap mode, and a flip to switch between the customary and the wide-edge focal point. Aside from the photograph and video modes it offers Pano, AR Stickers, Fun Video, Document, and a Pro mode. Fun Video includes foundation sound while you record a video.

Photographs taken with the Vivo S1 were beneath normal at a cell phone at this cost point. In sunshine, the telephone concentrated rapidly however we saw that photographs were underexposed. Subtleties were adequate, and content at a separation was clear. A similar scene was uncovered better when utilizing the ultra-wide-edge sensor. In any case, for this situation, photographs missed out on subtleties.

Close-ups were great, and the Vivo S1 could bolt concentrate rapidly and get the introduction right. Nonetheless, the hues weren’t constantly precise. Representation mode offers diverse lighting impacts which you can browse before hitting the screen catch. The yield had great edge identification.

Vivo additionally offers a different gap mode which can be utilized to take bokeh shots. While shooting pictures in this mode, we saw that the haze impact wasn’t connected reliably. Edge discovery wasn’t that great in this mode either.

The camera additionally has an AI Portrait Framing highlight that encourages you outline a scene appropriately. When encircled accurately, the Vivo S1 additionally takes the shot consequently.

Low-light camera execution was normal, as the telephone couldn’t catch subtleties great. We didn’t discover a night mode in the camera application, and this could have helped Vivo improve its low-light camera execution. Selfies had great detail yet the Vivo S1 will in general overexpose scenes. You can take pictures in selfie mode too, and the telephone managed great edge identification as far as we can tell. In any case, these shots were likewise marginally overexposed.

Video recording maxes out at 1080p for both the essential just as the selfie cameras. We found that the Vivo S1 needed video adjustment, which is a bit of amazing thinking about its cost. Most cell phones at this cost are fit for chronicle 4K video and can balance out 1080p film.


The Vivo S1 is one more cell phone from Vivo evaluated under Rs. 20,000. It has an eye-getting structure and a brisk in-show unique mark scanner. Vivo brings the new MediaTek Helio P65 SoC to the table, yet it is just imperceptibly superior to the MediaTek Helio P70 SoC in a couple of benchmarks. Regarding processor control, the Vivo S1 is comparable to cell phones controlled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, which can cost as meager as Rs. 10,000.

While the Vivo S1 offers great battery life, its camera execution neglected to intrigue us. At the soliciting cost from Rs. 19,990 you can improve prepared cell phones, for example, the Realme X (Review) or Oppo K3 (Review), or spend somewhat more for the Redmi K20 ₹ 21,999 (Review).
