vivo Z1Pro hands-on review

The vivo Z1Pro is yet another entrant in the absolute jam-packed budget mid-range smartphone segment. Currently dominated by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, the Z1Pro tried to beat Xiaomi at its own game by offering even more value at a similar price point.

vivo Z1Pro specs:

  • Design: Plastic construction
  • Display: 6.53-inch, 2340×1080 resolution, IPS LCD, 395PPI
  • Main camera: 16MP f1.8 wide, 8MP f2.2 ultra-wide, 2MP f2.4 depth sensor, 4K30 video
  • Front camera: 32MP f2.0, 1080p30 video
  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 712, 2×2.3GHz Kryo 360 Gold & 1.7GHz Kryo 360 Silver CPU, Adreno 616 GPU
  • Memory: 64/128GB storage, 4/6GB RAM, microSD expansion support
  • Connectivity: Dual SIM, 4G LTE, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, microUSB, headphone jack
  • Battery: 5000mAh, 18W fast charging
  • Software: Funtouch OS 9.0 based on Android 9
  • Misc: Fingerprint sensor, face unlock

The standout features of the vivo Z1Pro include the Snapdragon 712 chipset (reasonably powerful), the ultra wide-angle rear camera (uncommon for phones in this class), and the massive 5000mAh battery with an 18W fast charger (bundled with the phone).

With a spec sheet like that, the Z1Pro seems poised to take on not just the Redmi Note 7 Pro but every other phone in this price range.
