vivo Y1s: Price, Specs, Availability in the Philippines

A decent smartphone at an affordable price

Smartphone prices are skyrocketing nowadays. But some brands still make phones at a very affordable price. Just like vivo with their new vivo Y1s.

It packs a hefty 4030mAh battery, a large 6.22-inch display, and a generous 32GB internal storage that is expandable up to 256GB via the microSD card slot. With its low price, vivo has opted not to include a fingerprint scanner and replaced it with face unlock instead. The latter is not too secure compared to the former but it is still good to know that a secure way of unlocking the phone is available for the user. There are also 2 colors to choose from: Aurora Blue and Olive Black.
