Two recently released phones are set to battle it out in this NoypiGeeks spec comparison.
It’s a battle between the Vivo S1 Pro and the latest mid-range phone released by Huawei — the Huawei Y9s.
The Vivo S1 Pro is a phone that has a very unique design thanks to its diamond-shaped quad-camera set up at the back. At the front, it has a waterdrop notch that houses its selfie camera. It was launched here in the Philippines back in November.
The Huawei Y9s, as said before, is the latest mid-range phone from their line up. It has a massive screen size of 6.59-inches and a 91% screen-to-body ratio thanks to its notchless display. It was recently made official in PH this January.
