Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo today launched its first punch-hole or pin-hole display smartphone Vivo Z1 Pro in India on July 3, 2019. This smartphone can also be called the Indian variant of Vivo Z5x launched in China recently. Both of these smartphones have a lot of similarities. The only difference between the Vivo Z1 Pro launched in India and the Vivo Z5x launched in China is that of the processor.
The phone comes in three storage options 4GB + 64GB, 6GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB and the device I have is a 6GB + 64GB storage device. The rest of the features and specifications are the same. At the moment, we know the features of this smartphone quickly.
Vivo Z1 Pro punch-hole or pin-hole display
First, let’s talk about the unique display of this smartphone. It is the first smartphone that has been launched in India with a punch-hole or pin-hole display. Likewise, this display can be seen in many smartphones launched this year such as Honor View 20, Samsung Galaxy M40, Motorola One Vision, Honor 20, 20 Pro. This is the first time for Vivo when the company has done such an experiment in one of its smartphones.
The phone has a 6.53 inch Full HD Plus display. The aspect ratio of the display is 19.5: 9 and resolution 1080X2340. The screen-to-body ratio of the display is also around 90 percent. In the phone’s display, the punch-hole is intimately fitted upwards on the left side. This hole is so small (4.5mm) that when you watch the video in full screen, it is not detected. You can also stretch it to fit-to-screen while watching a video.
The contrast and brightness of the display of this phone are similar to the company’s recently launched Y-series smartphone. The sensitivity of the display is also good while playing the game you will not have any problem in hitting the target. You also navigate through the apps comfortably on the display. over a mid-range display, its display will not disappoint you.
Vivo Z1 Pro Design
We now talk about the design of the phone. The design of the phone resembles Vivo’s mid-range launched Y-series smartphone. Its design has not been changed much. In the front panel, a punch hole is placed instead of the notch, which gives you a full-view experience. The top of the phone has a very fine line for the receiver and proximity sensor which does not take up the space of the display at all. A thin chin has also been given on its underside.
A dedicated smart button for Google Assistance has been given on the left side of the phone. After Nokia 4.2 and 3.2, this smartphone has also seen this dedicated button. On the left side of the phone itself, a SIM tray is provided above the smart button, in which the dual SIM card with a dedicated microSD card slot can be seen. Usually, in every smartphone of Vivo, you get to see this sim card tray. On the right side of the phone, you find the volume rockers at the top while below it you get the power button. The dimensions of the phone are 162.39 X 77.33 X 8.85mm.
The Processor of Vivo Z1 Pro
Now let’s talk about the most important feature of this smartphone, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 10nm chipset processor. This processor is superior to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. This processor is better for multitasking and gaming. The Vivo USP of this smartphone is its processor which is rated 184449 on the Antutu Benchmark. Which is higher than the ratings of Snapdragon 710 processor 174189. Apart from this, the 10nm chipset is fitted with Adreno 616 GPU.
It is clear that the phone offers multi-tasking as well as better graphics performance for gaming. This processor also improves graphics performance as well as battery performance and AI performance. Perhaps that’s why Vivo is promoting it with the Fully Loaded tagline. I have also not seen any problem in multi-tasking and graphical performance, the phone works smoothly. If you look at the overall performance, it does not disappoint you. Its processor is much better than other devices in this range.
Vivo Z1 Pro Triple Rear Camera Setup
This smartphone has a triple rear camera setup, whose primary sensor has been given 16 megapixels. The primary camera aperture is f / 1.78. The phone has an 8-megapixel super wide-angle camera. Along with this, a 2-megapixel HDR camera has been given. The triple rear camera is vertically aligned. The LED flash is fitted at the bottom with a triple rear camera.
The phone has a 32-megapixel selfie camera for selfie. In many smartphones launched this year, we have seen a punch-hole 32-megapixel camera. Talking about the camera, the rear camera of this smartphone also does not disappoint you. You cannot expect more from a mid-range smartphone. The selfie camera of the phone is much better and you also get 10X zoom in the rear camera.
Vivo Z1 Pro Battery
This year, Vivo has given 5,000 mAh battery in many of its Y-series smartphones Y12, Y17, Y15. This smartphone is also launched with the same 5,000 mAh strong battery. The battery backup of the phone is tremendous, In addition, you can run it comfortably for one and a half to two days by charging it once. In order to charge its battery, it also has 18W fast charging support. The only drawback I felt was that a USB Type-C charging jack could be given in it.
Well, in the mid, sub-mid range smartphone of Vivo, I have only got Type-A or Micro USB port. Whereas in mid-range smartphones of Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, you also get USB Type-C. Talking about the software, the phone has an in-house Funtouch OS 9 based on the Android 9 Pie operating system. Many pre-installed apps are also provided on the phone, you can also delete these apps if you want.
After reviewing the phone overall, I conclude that this could be a better option for mid-range users. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform is not in it, but its performance is better. I can give full marks for multitasking and gaming. I liked the camera well, if you are fond of photography, you can surprise its rear camera. The selfie camera is a tremendous one that you can use for day-to-day life and also social media uploads.
