What we don’t like

  • 2GB RAM
  • No IP rating
  • No Gorilla Glass Protection

This smartphone has all the features packed in. I am writing this review after testing its functionality. It has some serious things to look at. Its design is eye-catching, the camera quality is quite good, a mid-sized display, and much more. So, look no further and read ahead to know everything about the Vivo Y1s.  

Design – Dichromatic

It got the design most users want. Such as;

  • Exciting Aurora Blue Color
  • Pocket-Friendly Size
  • No Bumpy Camera

Its design is sleek and eye-catching. It’s a pleasure to use the Vivo Y1s due to their dichromatic back. I got its Olive Black color which impressed me a lot. Its plastic back is strong, durable, and beautiful. Its second color scheme is Aurora Blue which is bright and clear. 

Weight and Size

This phone weighs only 161gm which is unreal. The phone’s dimensions are 155.11×75.09×8.28mm, and the size is only 6.22 inches. That’s why this phone easily fits into my pocket, and I enjoy its functionality for hours without feeling too heavy in my hand.


The display has an IPS LCD with 16M colors and a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels, which gives me a vibrant and clear display every time. So, now I can watch my favorite movie and series on my phone without worrying about anything.

Performance – Good for Moderate Use

The key aspects of its performance are.

  • Octa-Core processor
  • Helio P35 Chipset
  • SD card support up to 256GB

It has adequate space to store all my data; if I want extra space, I can get it by putting an SD card in its slot. Whereas 2GB RAM works pretty well with the processor ensuring a medium level of multitasking.


It is called a speaker phone because of the clarity of the sound it provides. It has a built-in MP4 player and FLAC player, which provides a better audio experience, and the music feels like it’s coming from a real speaker.

Camera – 13MP Rear Camera

Vivo Y1s has an amazing camera I can trust to capture stunning photos. Its rear camera is 13MP with f/2.2 and LED Flash, whereas its front-facing camera has 5MP with f/1.8. It also supports Geo-tagging, Phase detection, Panorama, and HDR.


I can record 1080p videos from my phone at 30fps to capture my memories. It is one of the exciting features of this phone, considering its price.

Battery – 4030mAh Capacity

It has a massive 4030mAh battery that never ends in one day. I am very impressed with its battery performance. I watched a movie for 3 hours on it, but the battery percentage did not bother me. The battery decreased by just 5% in 3 hours. This phone has enough power to last me through a busy day.

Charging – 10 Watts Fast

Charging has become the main concern for most users these days. Who wants to wait 2-3 hours for their mobile phones to charge? That’s why this phone has a 10W fast charger that charges my phone from 0 to 100% in 1.5 hours through a MicroUSB charging port. 

Network – All Connectivity

It supports 4G VoLTE and has the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth version that gives me no connectivity issues. It also provides me with the latest GPS technology to ensure my navigation is accurate and fast. And if I am bored and want to feel the nostalgic moments of my past life, it has an FM Radio that brings back the old and real me.


Best For:

Li-Po Non-removable 4030 mAh.

About the Brand:

It has a great design, a good display, and a reliable battery life to make it worth its price. Overall, Vivo Y1s is an impressive device that makes me feel like I’m holding an expensive flagship device as I use it.
