The vivo Y1s is one of the more affordable devices the company has in Kenya. This phone is available on Jumia for around Ksh 9,500 but can also be bought offline for a cheaper price. The phone joins the expanding list of vivo smartphones we have seen launch in Kenya in the last couple of years. We have seen a number of devices from vivo but they just don’t seem to grab our attention. Yes, the phones are good but when compared to others available on the market, they don’t stand out.
The vivo Y series is the company’s affordable series that is meant for young people. The vivo Y1s is a clear representation of this. The phone does offer good value for money if you look at its specifications and may be the perfect phone for anyone looking for a good phone they can rely on within this price range.
Below we will look at the key specifications of the Y1s to help you decide if this phone is worth your money.
