smartphone Vivo S1 review

The delightfully friendly smartphone by Vivo S1 is the latest upgrade you need to enhance your style quotient. When I started this Vivo S1 review, one thing stood out. The makers have nailed the design quotient with its gradient back design along with peppy blue hue and an eye-catchy diamond pattern finish on its back. All these features make the Vivo S1 one of the best-looking handsets available in the market.

A phone that not only looks stunning but also comes with latest technology, Vivo S1 targets offline customers who love to hold the phone before taking out their wallets. It is available via offline retailers in India with some great cashback offers and banking discounts.

This Vivo S1 review tells you everything you need to know about the affordable smartphone before making the right decision.
