Hey, smartphone curious people. How are you? In this write-up, I will be talking about the Vivo S1 smartphone.

Vivo S1 is part of the new S series of smartphones, where S stands for Style! In the first look the phone seems to be stylish, but is it worthy to buy, let’s find out in this review.


The smartphone comes in the Vivo S series, which is based around style. Vivo S1 surely looks stylish and comes in two color variants Diamond Black and Skyline Blue. The smartphone is 159.5 mm long and weighs about 179 g.

The device comes with a water notch display in front and with a triple camera set-up on its rear. S1 comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner rather than a physical one.

You also get a triple sim slot and a dedicated key for your Google assistant just under the sim tray. Down in the smartphone, you get a 3.5mm headphone jack, speaker grill and a USB 2.0 charging port.


You get a 6.38-inch AMOLED display on the S1. The device’s viewing angles are good and support enough brightness for the comfortable outdoor usage of the device.

The display is a waterdrop notch display and boasts a quick in-display fingerprint scanner.

Vivo S1 is protected by short sensation 3D glass protection which scores 690 in the vicar’s toughness scale.

I am sure you won’t have heard of the brand but when it comes to toughness its vicar’s toughness scores beat both Gorilla 5 and Gorilla 6 protection.


We all know Vivo smartphones are well known for their camera so what does Vivo S1 hold up for you?

The S1 comes with a triple camera setup on its rear. You get a primary camera of 16-megapixel, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera lens, and a 2-megapixel portrait sensor.

In the front, the device comes with a massive 32-megapixel selfie camera. Front camera images are crisp and won’t disappoint you in good lighting condition but the image quality is below-average in low lights. Also, the device comes pre-loaded with plenty of different camera modes.

Chipset & Processor

The Vivo S1 is the first smartphone in India to come with Mediatek MT6768 Helio P65 chipset which is based on 12nm technology.

With Mediatek MT6768 Helio P65 chipset on board, you can experience a lag-free gaming experience and can perform multitasking with ease. Although the device does get heated with longer gameplays.

The device’s chipset is based on the Octa-core processor. To satisfy your entertainment needs Vivo has plugged in Mali-G52 MC2 GPU into the device.


The device comes bundled with a massive battery of 4,500 mAh and comes with an 18W fast charger.

Although what is surprising is that Vivo S1 comes with a USB 2.0 charging port and misses on a Type-C port, which is a bit unusual for mid-segment smartphones.

Pricing & Variants

Vivo S1 comes in three variants. You can go for 4GB RAM+128GB Internal storage, 6GB RAM+64GB internal storage, and 6GB RAM+128GB internal storage.

The prices of the above three variants are Rs. 17,990, Rs. 18,990, and Rs. 19,990 respectively. To me, Vivo seems a bit overpriced here.
