One of the brands that has bet heavily on Indian territory is Xiaomi. Including, this Vivo S1 can be a legitimate competitor to the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, a mobile phone similar in some characteristics.

According to the information, Vivo S1 has an expected value of 260 euros (converted from Indian currency). Currently, you can buy a Xiaomi Mi 9 SE for a very approximate price.
After all, Vivo S1 or Xiaomi Mi 9 SE?
At first glance, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE looks like a clear winner. Your Super AMOLED screen will surely put the Vivo S1 panel in one corner. In addition, its triple rear camera configuration is superior in its sensors. Additionally, we have the biometric reader under the glass, Vivo S1 keeps it in the back cover.
However, there is one detail that Mi 9 SE does not have: pop-up camera. The Vivo S1 is a more budget-friendly mobile phone but includes the novelty of the motorized camera, something that we only see on high-end mobile phones.
Therefore, if the deciding factor is design, the choice between Vivo S1 and Mi 9 SE can be selected. In addition, Vivo said they are planning to launch an even more powerful version called Vivo S1 Pro.
