Here's what we felt about the phone when we at India Today got a chance to review it.
"The Vivo S1, in a way, is neither extremely great nor a disaster. It is a capable phone and will please you until you demand from it the kind of performance of experience you will get from a more expensive phone. It also doesn't break any new ground, like say the Realme X or the Vivo Z1 Pro that punch above their weight. With the Vivo S1 you get what you pay for, which is not a bad deal but unfortunately for it, there are better deals available, like Vivo's own Z1 Pro."
