The action hots up in the ultra-competitive sub Rs 20,000 segment. Vivo Z1Pro is the newest device that joins popular devices like the Samsung Galaxy M40 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Vivo has kitted this device with a versatile camera; it’s also among the first smartphones in India with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 Processor under the hood.
Colours are quite vibrant. The display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio crams close to 400 pixels per inch. Vivo offers a choice of three hardware variants — 4GB/64GB, 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB that team up with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor. It’s a solid package, enough to keep this device chugging along. The Z1Pro boasts of a 5000 mAh battery; it’s quite robust — you probably won’t reach out for your charger for a day and a half. This large battery adds to the heft of the device pushing it over 200 gms. That might be a fair compromise for power users who will also approve of the fast charging option. It’s disappointing to see a micro USB charging slot though. The Vivo Z1Pro packs quite a few features, including a massive battery and a triple cam. (Rs 14,999 onwards)
