Mobile gaming is at its peak and online multiplayer game titles such as PUBG and Fortnite have taken the world by storm. vivo recognizes the emerging demand for capable hardware to play these games and thus conceived the vivo Z1Pro, a condensed gaming gear for the Gen-Z.
The handset loads formidable specs, feature-rich software, and several nifty features to spruce your gaming experience. And most importantly, catering to the Gen-Z, the Z1Pro packages all its hardware might in a very elegant body. Let’s elaborate.
vivo Z1Pro: An Exquisite Look
From the get-go, we fell in awe of vivo Z1Pro’s design. The display exhibits an In-Display Camera that blends subtly into the fascia. This is possible, thanks to vivo’s super black plated technology, a specimen of its engineering marvel.
Thanks to this camera implementation, you get an edge-to-edge FHD+ screen. Love binging Netflix? Guess what, it comes with Widevine L1 support to stream your favorite shows in HD. Want the most out of PUBG? vivo Z1Pro offers a big immersive display for this and more.
The display is also shielded by Schott Xensation 3D glass that offers 8.15% better scratch resistance than Gorilla Glass 5.
Flip to the back, and you get a taste of vivo’s craftsmanship. The Sonic Blue variant flaunts a prismatic view with a subtle confluence of emerald green and cobalt blue. If you tilt the device, you could see light dancing to yield elegant patterns. Apart from Sonic Blue, the Z1Pro also comes in Sonic Black and Mirror Black finish.
We also quite like the dedicated Google Assistant key. The option to summon Google Assistant conveniently should prove really convenient for smart home appliance users.
In case of the Z1Pro, what you see is what you get and you will only be able to truly appreciate what you get once you hold the device in hand. And even more impressive than what’s on the outside is, what lies within!
vivo Z1Pro: A Performance Beast!
vivo Z1Pro justifies the Pro modifier when it comes to performance. It is the first phone to ship with the latest Snapdragon 712 processor aided with an AI engine and Adreno 616 GPU. The class-leading chipset is further complemented by high-quality UFS 2.1 storage (up to 128GB) and LPDDR4X RAM (up to 6GB).
Additionally, you get an option to beef up storage space using a MicroSD card as well. So, just like the rest of its specs, here as well you get to future proof the device for next-gen gaming demands.
The day-to-day usage is absolutely smooth. Throw any game at it and the Z1Pro will breeze through without breaking a sweat. There are no stutter or heating issues while playing heavy games or with aggressive multitasking.
But the raw power isn’t all that makes it an excellent gaming phone. The phone is equipped with a dedicated gaming toolkit for e-sports (especially PUBG) enthusiasts. This includes –
- Game Cube: for smart management of resources and notifications
- Game Box: for tweaking sound output that suits the game
- 4D vibrations
- 3D surround sound
- Voice Changer
- Game countdown
- Low Blue Ray eye protection
- Multi Turbo: To ramp up the performance
vivo Z1Pro runs on the latest Android Pie based Funtouch OS. This software brings a flood of features such as the beloved Dark Mode.
What’s interesting is that all of these game-centric processes hardly had an impact on the battery life. vivo Z1Pro draws juice from a sizeable 5000mAh battery. This coupled with an 18W fast charger which will ensure long endurance and unmatched battery convenience.
Vivo goes a step further with the reverse charging support. It might come handy at times and when it does, Hallelujah!
Aesthetics check, performance check, what’s left? Oh yeah – the cameras!
While the front houses an impressive 32MP shooter, the back has a capable Triple Rear Camera setup with a primary 16MP sensor at the helm. Adding versatility to the system there’s an 8MP wide-angle shooter and a 2MP depth sensor.
Unlike the compressed 8MP output from many other 32MP cameras on phones these days, this one gets a full 32MP photo. So, your selfies preserve every little detail of your beauty.
vivo Wows With The Z1Pro
It’s quite clear that phone follows a gaming-centric approach, but what’s surprising is that the impressive performance and specs don’t come at the cost of the overall look and feel of the phone – one area which manufacturers generally tend to ignore in online exclusives. This combination of beauty and brawn is indeed rare in the affordable and mid-range segment.
The Z1Pro is surely a head turner and you’d appreciate it even more once you indulge yourself with its flawless performance. The vivo Z1Pro is available for a competitive starting price of Rs. 14,990, on Flipkart and Vivo India E-store.
