Vivo Smart Wi-Fi
A while ago, when people heard the word “Android,” the first thing to come to their mind used to be Samsung, but that’s not the case anymore. Although dominant, Samsung has other tough competitors, it needs to look out for. Vivo, Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus, and many more up and coming companies now share the Android market with Samsung. Among those, Vivo, a Chinese smartphone brand with a growing profile in South Africa, brings you some interesting apps.
We are here to review one of those very apps offered by Vivo S.A. for android phones, Vivo Smart Wi-fi. Available for Android versions 5.1 and up, this application has a high rating of 4.0 with 22,080 total reviews and 1,000,000+ downloads in the Google Play Store.
Download and Install Vivo Smart Wi-fi APK
There are two ways for you to download Vivo Smart Wi-fi. First, you can find the application in Google Play Store and install it normally like you would any other app. Still, in some cases, in Google Play Store, the application shows incompatible even incompatible devices. The second installation method, download and install using APK, comes to play for those cases.
APK (Android Package Kit) files are raw files of an Android app similar to .exe files for your Windows pc. You need to know how to work your way around an APK file to install this application. It can be done in 4 simple steps.

Step 2: Third-Party Installation.
If you have never downloaded apps from sources other than Google Play Store, your device might block the download, so make sure to go to your settings and allow download from unknown sources: Settings > Security and turn on Unknown Source.
After your download is complete, make sure to turn off the Unknown Source installation from the setting to keep your phone safe from downloading unwanted or corrupted files.
For Android 8.0 Oreo, you can accept the installation from the browser rather than global settings.
