While it may seem like the coolest smartphone to buy right now, Vivo’s high pricing (at Rs 35,990) is what will drive many away from this beauty. In fact, it is Vivo’s pricing that will convince many to pick up the OnePlus 6 at Rs 34,999 that not only comes with better hardware specifications but, unfortunately for Vivo, also performs better in every aspect.
