Vivo S1 recently launched in Nepal. Looking after the price segment and specifications, it was quite popular. Vivo S1 is one the best Smartphone under 30000 price segments in Nepal. Initially, 6/128GB was available for Nepali market but recently they launched the 4/128GB variant too. Are there any changes in those two variants? Well, Vivo S1 4/128GB comes with the same specifications of 6/128GB.
Vivo S1 features a 6.38- inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with 83.3% screen-to-body ratio. It has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels giving a 404 PPI with minimum bezels and a fingerprint scanner beneath the screen. For CPU and GPU, this device is powered by Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P65 and Mali-G52 MC2 respectively. Couple that with 4/6GB RAM it can provide decent performance for day to day multitasking. But, if you are a heavy user its not your cup of tea. This device comes with 128GB internal storage which is expandable up to 256GB using microSD.

Moving on, Vivo S1 comes with its triple rear camera setup. The triple rear camera consists of a 16MP primary lens, an 8MP wide-angle lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. On paper, it seems pretty good. For the selfie camera, there is a 32 MP with f/2.0 aperture which can produce decent selfies as the company claims. But, can it compete with the other camera-centric smartphone like Samsung M40, Redmi Note 7 Pro etc. which have great cameras under the same price segment launched this year.
Coming to its operating system, this phone runs on Android 9.0. You’ll have Vivo’s own Funtouch 9 over the OS which is customizable with exquisite simplicity. The software also offers dark mode, smart launcher, smart scan etc. To power this device, you get robust 4500 mAh battery which can be quickly juiced up as it supports 18W fast charging. But, despite its price segment and all those features, it lacks USB Type-C which is a bit of a disappointment.
Pricing and Availability
Vivo S1 is available in Diamond Black, Skyline Blue, Cosmic Green. But, for Nepal only Diamond Black and Skyline Blue are available. Vivo has offered Rs. 31,490 for Vivo S1 4/128GB variant whereas for Vivo S1 6/128GB variant Rs. 34,690 is offered. But, we cannot confirm whether it’s capable to compute with other devices under the same price segments.
