Its not rated for dust and splash protection, which means it’s not waterproof. It has a physical fast optical fingerprint sensor, conveniently placed under the screen for easier unlock. It supports and audio jack and a downward firing speaker, which is great for playing media.

It has a Kyro Octa-core CPU paired with an Adreno 690 GPU, with storage options of 8GB for RAM & 128 GB for ROM. It unfortunately does not come with a dedicated expandable memory option. Paired with the AMOLED screen, running the latest Android 9 with a Funtouch 9.2 skin on top, the performance feels very fast and premium. Everything feels fast, fluid and rich in colour. It is a flagship worth its name.
The Vivo S1 Pro has a quad camera arrangement on the back. It comes with a huge 48 MP primary sensor, with a 12MP picture binning, for those excellent daylight photos. The ultra-wide is an 8MP lens, with a 120˚field of view, giving it great immersion for those landscape or group photos.

That in addition to the fact that it also comes with a Li-Po 4500mAh non-removable battery, which is rather generous. Even with the high refresh rate AMOLED screen, this should be more than enough. The main concession would be that there is no wireless charging or reverse wired charging here. It luckily supports support NFC for contactless paying and comes with an infrared port. It comes in Blue, Black, Gray and Mercedes AMG.
Similarly, priced phones would include the Xiaomi Mi 11T, Oneplus Nord 2T, Apple iPhone SE and Samsung Galaxy A52. The main talking points would be battery, being a 5G device and the cameras. With the high refresh rate AMOLED screen, its offers an experience similar to the top rated flagship gadgets currently in the market.
Even for the price, it’s a great device. A top notch flagship 5G flagship chipset, huge immersive 144Hz OLED screen and impressive camera systems. The cameras can even record up to 4K which is not exactly a common feature.
