Who is Vivo?

Vivo is a communication technology company that is based in China, Dongguan. Vivo has been founded since 2009 and slowly, but surely start to appear more into the market. In Dongguan, Guangdong the Vivo smartphones are designed and manufactured there which includes the accessories, software and online services.


Who is Vivo’s target market?

Vivo smartphone company targets majority the low price range clientele. However, it is about to change due to the great growth they experienced in sales in their homeland. They are now targeting the high-end and price-conscious mid-range segments of the smartphone market since October 2020 in the European market.

Here below is a video of the Vivo Y1s where I showcase how it looks in person:


How do they compare with their competitors?

Vivo smartphones major competitors in the market is Remi(Mi) and other new brand Oppo. These three brands target the same price range market. At the moment Oppo does have the edge in the market due to more marketing support while Vivo is still lacking in this department.

Vivo is intending to improve in the departments they are lacking and is already trying to see if they can compete with high end market which has Samsung, Huawei etc. The best to compare Vivo is to look up in the device comparison tab which you will be able to find on top on this website page.


Vivo smartphone is relatively new in the European market. It is already successful in its homeland and is aiming to become one of the top brands in the smartphone industry. It is not something that will happen overnight and there are some areas the company can focus to improve their product.

For example:

  • Improve marketing and awareness of their products.
  • Improve their after sales and maintenance support for their products.

When they accomplish improving these areas. I believe this product can really be successful and will be a competitor for other smartphone devices.

  1. I have never heard of the Vivo smartphone before.  I have an Iphone and am pretty tired of Apple making you use their products by not allowing the phone to work with non Apple devices.  So I have been shopping for a new device that is not Apple LOL.  Is this phone available with U.S. carriers.  I see you mentioned the European market, so wondered if only available in Europe.

    • Thank you for your feedback! Sadly,  Vivo is not available in US market yet. 😢 Hopefully in the near future when the brand grows a bit more.

  2. Hi, I’ve just gone through your article on Vivo smartphone – in-depth detail. In recent times smartphones have rapidly become an essential item to almost everyone in the world, be it a student or a businessman. I caught much interest in Vivo Y1s, it looks indeed smart and its memory is large enough to store a lot of useful information for my business. I definitely have to buy this one for myself. Thank you for sharing this useful piece of writing with us. I will be sharing it with my colleagues too.

    • Glad you find the article useful. Thank you for your feedback! Its true the world has evolved so much that a mobile cellular device is a must have tool. 

  3. That was an interesting article to read. China has over the years now been leading in the manufacturing of mobile phones.A good number of phones being sold globally have their roots in China. Vivo seems to be pretty new in the market compared to phones like Samsung and Huawei- which over the years have been dominating the markets. I will do more research on Vivo products and see how their products compare with other phones like Oppo.

    Thank you for sharing this!



    • Its a pleasure and thank you for your feedback! Many good products come from China so keep an eye out for Vivo but also for Oppo. Both are new brands and one or both might new top contenders to compete with Samsung, Huawei and even Apple one day. 

  4. I have never heard of the Vivo brand before. I am always looking forward to new things and I would try them, why not. Chinese experts always surprise us with some new super models, I hope this will be the case. I will definitely research and find out more about the brand.

    • Thank you for the feedback. Like I said Vivo is still relatively new to the international market and are working on to spread more awareness of their products. As soon they get that right, everyone will know Vivo is not just a name for a VW Polo Vivo car, but a mobile cellular device brand. Hope the extra research will lead you purchase a new Vivo brand device.
