From the specs above, you can see that both phones share some similarities with each other. An example of this would be their displays. Both phones have Super AMOLED screens. Although, they do have a slight difference when it comes to the size.

The Realme XT has a 6.4-inch display compared to the 6.38-inch display of the Vivo S1 Pro. The former also has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Meanwhile, there’s no mention of what was used on the S1 Pro.


Aside from the display size, both phones also have a Type-C USB Port, an under-display fingerprint scanner and a headphone jack. Sound-wise, they both have loudspeakers but the Realme XT has Dolby Atmos.

Processor wise – the Realme XT has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chip and an Adreno 616 GPU versus the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 and Adreno 610 GPU of the Vivo S1 Pro. So in terms of performance, the Realme XT takes the dub.


On the memory front, both phones have an 8GB RAM setup with 128GB of internal storage. If you feel like 128GB isn’t enough, you can easily upgrade the storage of both phones to an additional 256GB with a microSD card.



As for the cameras, the Realme XT has a 64-megapixel primary, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. That’s compared to the 48-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 2-megapixel macro camera of the competition. Clearly, the Realme XT wins on this feature.

Although selfie-camera wise, it’s a different story. The Vivo S1 Pro has a 32-megapixel front-facing camera compared to the 16-megapixel that the Realme XT has. If you really like taking selfies or doing live streams on social media, then the Vivo S1 Pro would be the optimal phone for you.


Battery wise, the Vivo S1 Pro has a 4,500mAh battery along with an 18W fast charging feature while the Realme XT has a 4,000mAh battery with a 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging feature.

Even though Realme’s bet has a faster-charging feature, the bigger battery of the Vivo S1 Pro still made it take the win in this matchup.


Last but certainly not least, let’s talk about the Price. The Vivo S1 Pro has a price of Php15,999 while the Realme XT has a Php16,990 price tag.

Overall, the Realme XT takes the win in this phone match up – even though it is priced Php1,000 more. It’s a superior camera and better chipset prove to be enough to beat the Vivo S1 Pro in this spec comparison match up.
