Internal Memory – As the usage of mobiles increase day by day, the device is used to store anything and everything. Right from pictures, songs, videos to official documents, email and more. Mobile is now the miniature version of the laptop. The 128GB ROM is good, as one will not run out of memory soon. The 6GB RAM is also a good addition as this allowed people to install multiple apps and run in the background.
Camera – Taking selfies have become mandatory at any event these days. Having a 32MP selfie camera surely helps the cause. The triple camera in the rear serves different purposes and is a great enhancement.
Battery & Charger – The 4500mAH battery will allow users to charge the phone once and not worry about drain-out for the entire day. I am yet to test out the battery performance but feel that its good. The 18W fast charge helps in charging the mobile much quicker and it’s an added advantage.
Colors – The new colors that can be seen on the back of the phone looks amazing. I personally loved the Diamond Black as it had the hint of Blue shade. It also reflects the light in all direction making it look like a diamond. The Skyline Blue has a distinctive light color and also a shiny finish that reflects multiple colors in the spectrum.

5G enabled device – The new 5G will give allow multiple people in a specific location to get high bandwidth compared to the 4G. Every brand has started making mobiles that are 5G compatible. Its good to see the VIVO already has plan to come out with 5G enabled phones.
Super FlashCharge120W – The superfast charge feature of the VIVO phone will allow the 50% of phone to be charged in under 5 minutes. They will be able to fully charge the mobile in 13 minutes. This feature will easily make it one of the most sort after phone as we all complain of very poor charging speed in mobiles.
Its good to see the growth of the VIVO company over the past 9 years. The latest phone VIVO S1 is set to be unleashed to public from tomorrow (7-Aug’19) and its already created a buzz. Innovations in the budgeted phone give an indication of the future enhancements expect in their flagship V-Series mobiles. Looking forward to seeing more innovations coming from VIVO in near future.
