Reviews for the Vivo S16

Vivo S16 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Vivo S16 comes with decent specs and perks that every user demand from an upper mid-range phone. It brings a powerful chipset configuration accompanied by top-notch display quality with beautiful camera results. Overall, the phone is worth recommending if you are looking for something different with decent photography. But at the same time, the battery life is slightly lower than the competition, though it doesn’t come with wireless or reverse charging support. With that said, there are tons of other options that can replace this phone. For instance, the Xiaomi Redmi K60 offers almost the same attributes, which are also available on the international market.

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
