Vivo S1 Pro
The focus of the S1 Pro from Vivo is about stye and here, it scores well. It’s a good looking phone, with its diamond-shped camera module. It’s a little chunky at 8.68mm in thickness and is a bit heavy too. You get a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED display with a full-HD+ resolution. There’s also an in-display fingerprint sensor, which works well.
It’s powered by a Snapdragon 665 octa-core SoC, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For software, you get Funtouch OS 9.2, based on Android 9 Pie. There’s a lot of bloatware pre-installed which is annoying. Overall performance is decent but it does get a little hot when gaming.
Battery life is good as the 4,500mAh battery easily lasts for a day and half of use. You get a primary 48-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture. Image quality is decent under good light but average in low light. The selfie camera is very good when shooting in daylight.
The Vivo V19 is the successor to the Vivo V17 and is yet another selfie-focused smartphone from the company. Vivo has focused on the design and the build quality of the device and the V19 feels like a premium device. The body is made out of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and feels premium to the touch. Vivo also offers it in some interesting colours.
The 6.44-inch AMOLED display has full-HD+ resolution and sharp output. It has excellent viewing angles, and the panel gets bright enough when outdoors. Vivo also offers an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Vivo V19 which is quick to unlock the device. Powering the smartphone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC which is weak. There is 8GB of RAM which helps the smartphone handle day-to-day tasks well.
It has a quad-camera setup at the back and a dual-camera setup for selfies. We found the camera performance to be good and the software easy to use. Daylight camera performance is good and the phone manages good edge detection in portrait shots. Low-light camera performance is acceptable but shooting in night mode is a tad slow.
