The Vivo S1 smartphone is the latest offering from the Vivo smartphone company. It’s a fantastic device that comes with a 6.38-inch touchscreen and a waterdrop notch. The device belongs to a middle-class segment and costs around 20,000 INR. Therefore, customers are very specific about the sealing properties of this device. Today we’re going to do a waterproof Vivo S1 test to find out whether the Vivo S1 is Waterproof and Dustproof device.

vivo S1 Waterproof and Dustproof device
The Vivo S1 is one of many smartphones with a waterproof notch and promising features. However, Vivo smartphones have a very good reputation in India when it comes to the local market. Since the price segment of this device belongs to the mid-range smartphone, it is quite possible that this device is waterproof and splash-proof. That is why we will test it even more in our Vivo S1 test for water resistance and splash resistance. Read the full article and see the results.
Did Vivo S1 come with waterproof IP rating?
Vivo has already launched many smartphones that have official IP68 water resistance. However, this is something new here, as we have not seen a waterproof smartphone that is in the price segment of INR 20,000.
A waterproof or water-resistant device contains special IP protection classes. An IP index is an international standard that defines the sealing efficiency of modern smartphones. These IP classifications are represented as IP followed by two digits. The protection class IP68 is the best that a smartphone can hold. However, it is important to note that this IP test is performed against freshwater. Therefore, slightly different results can be obtained with saltwater or other liquids such as soda.
You will be a little disappointed to learn that the new Vivo S1 is not officially waterproof. As there is no IP classification for this device on its official website. Therefore, this device is not waterproof. However, it could still withstand accidental water damage, so we’ll continue our Vivo S1 leak test.
Vivo S1 Waterproof Test
The official website does not provide reliable information on the sealing capabilities of the device. We will do our own test. Prepare for the Vivo S1 waterproof and water-resistant test. Take a look at the technical data of the device beforehand:
|Device Name||Vivo S1|
|Screen||6.53 inch, 1080 x 2340 pixels|
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 710|
|RAM/ROM||4 GB | 128 GB|
|Battery||3920 mAh, Li-Polymer|
|Primary Camera||12.19 MP (megapixels)|
|IP Ratings||not found|
In this waterproof and water-resistant test, we test the device to detect accidental water splashes and how the device is attached to it. We will also test whether the device can withstand immersion in water. So be excited about the results.
This test is based exclusively on individual/team observations. This test only gives an idea of whether a device is waterproof or not. We recommend users not to do this test at home as it can damage their device.
After performing the Vivo S1 leak test, we achieved the following results:
|Device part||Waterproof Test|
The results clearly show that the device is not waterproof at all. The camera stops working immediately and the screen is also damaged. White spots appear on the screen, indicating that there is water in the device after the leak test.
Since the Vivo S1 is not waterproof, it can be splash-proof. So we ran a splash and dust protection test to find out the truth. Here are the results of the spray/splashproof test and dirt/dustproof tests:
|Device part||Splashproof Test||Dustproof Test|
|Speaker||works||no dust in speaker|
After performing the spray or splashproof and dustproof test, we can conclude that the Vivo S1 is splash or dustproof to a certain extent. You can rest easier if you accidentally splash some water or coffee on it. However, you need to take good care of your device as it does not have an official IP68 protection rating.
In addition, the device is completely dustproof. Since the camera is not completely waterproof, you may not be able to use features such as underwater photography, phone calls when it rains, etc. However, this is not a decisive factor for this price. We recommend that users pay special attention to this phone if they want to buy one.
What you must do if your phone is not Waterproof?
Since your device is not waterproof, we recommend that you take care of your device. You can do this in the following steps:
- Do not take underwater photos with the camera.
- Do not make or receive calls in the rain or in the shower
- Don’t take selfies underwater etc.
- Do not drink coffee, soda, or alcohol while using your device.
If your device is damaged by water, keep it in a box of rice for 1 hour and contact the nearest service centre.
