    For those that have seen the pictures or reviews on the trending Vivo V15, you’ll agree with me that the latest Vivo S1 has a similar design and look with the V15. The major difference between the two Android smartphones is the lower pop-up selfie camera resolution and bigger internal storage.  The smartphone looks sleek and trendy, with two color variants (Ice lake Blue and Pet Pink) to choose from.

    In terms of display, Vivo S1 rocks a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display which offers a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels.  The Android smartphone also features a 90.95% screen-to-body with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
