Overall, vivo fully considers the needs of the user community: love scan code, love sharing, love life. Then vivo will be optimized according to your needs, but it is more humane. The Vivo Z5x still has 15% of the remaining power, and the battery life of the 5000mAh battery is still quite obvious. As the first screen-opening mobile phone of vivo, the vivo Z5x excels in system adaptation.

vivo Z1Pro hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Based on our brief usage of the device, we found the vivo Z1Pro to be a well-performing and competitive smartphone. It has good design, good display, plenty of software features, good camera, good performance and great battery life. The build quality does feel a bit plasticky at times and the UI design is not to the liking of this particular reviewer as it feels too much like an iOS clone but aside from that we didn't have a lot to complain about. Overall, we would recommend this phone for budget mid-range smartphone buyers in this price range.

Overall, the Vivo Z1 Pro is a decent performer at the price. If gaming is your main focus and you want a phone that looks good you do not need to look any further than this. However, if you are looking for a device to click images I would recommend that you take a look at other options like the Redmi Note 7 Pro or the Realme 3 Pro.

80% Vivo Z1 Pro review: Offers a ‘premium’ touch at an affordable price tag
Source: Gadget Show English
Vivo Z1 Pro is not just a powerful smartphone but is also a pretty good alternative for a whole lot of smartphones in the sub-Rs 20,000 price segment. Buyers may not get a lot of firsts here in terms of features but it does get the title of being the first to bring Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 to smartphone in the country. Vivo Z1 Pro seems like a more polished version of the Y series by the company and is clearly the best of what Vivo has to offer in the price range. The punch hole display is clearly a step in the right direction if they have to eliminate the use of pop-up cameras. But that’s again, subjective.

Source: Android Authority English
The Vivo Z1 Pro is an excellent choice if design is your primary consideration. The phone combines a beautiful colorway with a punch-hole camera to create a best-in-class design. Performance is competitive with buttery-smooth UI navigation but the bloatware hurts the experience. The versatile camera is, unfortunately, not quite best in class either.

Vivo Z1Pro review: Choose this for top-notch performance, not interface
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 16,990 (for 6GB RAM and 64GB storage), the Vivo Z1Pro is a mixed bag of hits and misses. It has a segment-first punch-hole screen, capable triple rear cameras, top-notch performance and a power-packed 5,000 mAh battery. Consider this phone for its camera, performance and exceptional on-battery time. However, if ease of use is important and you stream videos on OTT platforms, this might not be your best bet.

Each and every phone have their own advantages and disadvantages. The Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro are the direct competitors to the Vivo Z1Pro in the similar price range, but these don’t feature triple rear cameras, 32-megapixel front camera or a huge battery. There is also the Samsung Galaxy M30 features triple rear cameas and a 5000mAh battery, but the SoC is not powerful.

Overall, the Vivo Z1 Pro looks beautiful, offers powerful performance, captures great pictures in fairly all lighting conditions, and easily lasts a day in single charge. For Rs 14,990, the Vivo Z1Pro is a tempting deal and if you're looking for a phone that is an all-rounder and doesn't comprise on any aspect, the Vivo Z1 Pro is a great option to consider.

Overall, Vivo seems to have done a very good job with the Z1 Pro. When we reviewed the Vivo Y17 not too long ago, we said it was outclassed in its price band. The Vivo Z1 Pro fixes its shortcomings at roughly the same price level. This phone has nearly every current-day feature and selling point that we can expect on a phone priced below Rs. 20,000, most notably the hole-punch front camera and three rear cameras. Vivo has managed to deliver competitive specifications, and we really don't think there's anything major missing that any other company offers right now.

Source: The Mobile Indian English
Vivo Z1 Pro is loaded with a good design language and the display looks crisp. The battery is long-lasting and you will not face any trouble in the performance part. The daylight camera performance is decent, but the same cannot be said for the low light condition. Furthermore, the user interface still needs some refining. Overall, if you can ignore its low light performance and bloatware, then it is still a good device to consider.

74% Vivo Z1 Pro Review: In a fight against the Pros
Source: Tech PP English
Now, the Z1 Pro comes with a strong gaming front and with a great display and good sound but lags behind in a few departments like UI, camera, and battery. Considering that its competitors are scoring very heavily in those very departments (especially battery and camera), the Z1 Pro is going to be leaving very heavily on gaming to make is presence felt in this extremely competitive segment of the market. If you are looking for a mid-segment device with a lot of gaming touches, then this is definitely a contender, although some would point to the now even-more-affordable Poco F1, which has a faster processor and also has its own cooling system.

With a starting price of Rs 16,990 for the 6GB+ 64GB version and Rs 18,990 got the 6GB+ 128GB version, Vivo has introduced one of the best-performing smartphones in the mid-range category.

For the price, the Vivo Z1x comes at it’s an all-rounder. You get a Super AMOLED Display, triple camera setup, and exceptional performance thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 octa-core processor inside the smartphone.

At the starting price of Rs 16,990, Vivo Z1x seems to be an all-rounder. The display is reasonably good, battery performance of the phone is at par compared to other smartphones in this price segment. The smartphone also gets a thumbs up from us in the performance section for its overall smooth performance and resource management. Camera duties are also handled well with the right level of detail and sharpness. Though there are a few rough edges like AI tends to make images look artificial sometimes or the camera UI is a little confusing, but they are issues which might not sway the buyers’ decision.

Vivo Z1X Review: Can it Pop out in this competitive price segment?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Vivo Z1X is a refined product then the Vivo Z1 Pro as it now comes with a better RAM option, improved cameras and lighter design. The performance of the phone is zippy and you do not feel any lag. The company has added a crisp display, which makes it an enjoyable experience while streaming videos or playing games. The daylight camera performance is quite decent in our opinion, though the low-light section needs improvements. The user interface has some interesting features to offer, but it is marred with bloatware and cluttered UI. The battery backup along with the fast charging support is welcome and so is the addition of the in-display fingerprint sensor. However, we have seen better-designed smartphones like the Realme X and Oppo K3, which offers premium design and a pop-up selfie camera. So, if you are considering to buy this smartphone, it is always better to look at the competition.

Overall, the Vivo Z1X looks decent, brings big and bright sMOLED screen, offers smooth or lag-free performance, delivers long-lasting battery life, and clicks great detailed pictures in all lighting conditions. However, I hope Vivo opts for glass body for its next Z-series phone and drops plastic, as well as works on making FunTouch OS slightly cleaner for better user experience. You can't get everything, I know. But when a phone is as good as the Vivo Z1X you do wish that what if it would have been just a wee bit better. That would have made it perfect from almost perfect that it is right now.
