Reviews for the Vivo S12 Pro

Vivo S12 Pro Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Vivo S12 Pro smartphone’s unique selling points are its design, performance, and camera power, especially the selfie camera. If you are looking for a stylish device that lasts a long time, then you may want to consider this device as it won’t slow down, unlike some other phones in this price bucket. But if you are someone who needs a good ultra-wide camera, then this smartphone is not for you. Although the phone will be perfect for a lot of people, it may not be the one for you. It depends on what you want out of a smartphone, so make your decision based on that. Also, it is yet to be available outside mainland China as it hasn’t launched globally yet. If you want an alternative to the Vivo S12 Pro, then the Moto G200 is a worthy alternative.
