If you’re a lover of mobile technology, then you should really check out our other cell phone review, where we discuss in depth the different types of cell phones available on the market and the pros and cons of each. In this Vivo S1 4GB review, we’ll explore the user interface of the cell phone, the details of the various hardware components included, and the strengths and weaknesses of the software as well.
The interface is perhaps the most interesting aspect of the Vivo S1 because it utilizes the same elements as the iPad mini-tablet form factor with a few differences. From the home screen to the notification area, everything runs using the mini-interface and this makes for a highly functional and stylish mobile that can also be used as a traditional home entertainment device.
The overall user experience is pretty much identical to that of the iPad except for one major difference. One of the major goals of the Vivo S1 was to provide a user-friendly interface that not only reduced navigation errors but also made sure that there was more choice available for users than ever before when it comes to media and applications.
This has resulted in two major aspects: a lot more choice in terms of video and audio, as well as optimizing choice in the media and application interface functions. For instance, the onscreen interface now supports a number of key features that aren’t supported by the older Vivo S.
For example, there are a number of extra applications that you can actually use from the home screen that weren’t previously available, such as Bluetooth headphones or some smart home-related applications. The inclusion of this interface in this particular S1 was definitely a major reason for its success, especially considering the low sales and popularity of the earlier models.
This screen is also useful for watching TV shows and movies through the Vioos “hub”. Users can actually browse the entire TV show database right from the home screen itself by just clicking on a certain show title, allowing for quick access to favorite and most watched TV shows at any given time.
This feature alone was enough to give it a significant time advantage over the competition in terms of functionality and user-friendliness. By using the service of the same Vivo S1, users can also look up movies and other contents through its dedicated TV application.
This makes for significant time savings when it comes to getting information, not to mention being able to search for shows and movies based on specific keywords. With a Vivo S1, users don’t have to spend their valuable time browsing through menus or even opening the full desktop interface to find the information they want.
A number of users tend to use the mobile phone to watch videos and photos, which is why they can conveniently save this functionality to the S1. So they don’t have to download anything from the Internet to keep watching their favorite movies or videos.
Overall, users get an overall experience that doesn’t disappoint. As we said earlier, Vivo has really delivered a tremendous device for the consumer.
