Reviews for the Vivo S18 Pro

Vivo S18 Pro Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
There’s no denying that the Vivo S18 Pro comes with a stunning design, superb hardware configuration, the latest software, and enough battery life. But at the same time, the camera department is lacking on this matter. Not to forget, you aren’t getting stereo speaker support and lacks gorilla glass protection. These factors could be overlooked if there aren’t many alternative options. But the story is completely different as there are multiple smartphones available in the same price range that delivers great perks. If you are looking for an alternative, you can check out the Xiaomi Poco X6 Pro smartphone which comes with similar specifications and in the same price range. Still, we must recommend you to compare both the devices and make a final decision based on your requirements and needs.

Vivo S18 Pro Review: The Best Smartphone for Photography Enthusiasts?
Source: Igeekphone English
A photography phone that focuses on portraits often does not need powerful performance and long battery life. Generally, it only requires outstanding lens quality and excellent portrait algorithms. However, the vivo S18 Pro is different and demands both. The release of powerful performance and sufficient battery life has given birth to this generation of portrait machines with almost no shortcomings. In terms of performance, the vivo S18 Pro is top-notch. In the actual measurement of the Dimensity 9200+, the high image quality of Yuanshin is stable at 58.9FPS, but the temperature is only over 40 degrees Celsius. While satisfying my girlfriend’s needs, I can no longer play games. I feel that the card, 5000mAh battery, and battery life fully meet the needs of a day of use. It should be said that the S18 Pro has achieved a perfect trade-off between portraits, performance, and battery life for the first time.

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.
