Vivo Z1 Pro is a big device, which has its pros and cons. The 6.5-inches panel takes up the entire front of the phone and offers a good real estate for multimedia streaming and gameplay.
Owing to the popularity of mobile games like PUBG, the Indian smartphone market is showing more inclination towards game-centric phones than ever before. Vivo was one of the players to realize the importance of employing competent chipsets early on and through the last year, it revamped its portfolio with competent Qualcomm and MediaTek chipsets. The new Z1 Pro is Vivo’s most aggressively specced and most disruptively priced phone in India till date, and it’s a phone that pays special focus to gaming needs.

Vivo Z1 Pro Review: Design and Build
The first thing we noticed is that the Vivo Z1 Pro is a big and bulky phone (we measured 206 grams). The back is favorably arched and that helps improve the grip to an extent.
The novel design element has to be the circular punch hole cutout for the front camera, which is also currently the trendiest notch style. The punch hole, which Vivo refers as in-display camera, helps the phone achieve 90.77% screen-to-body ratio. Or, in simpler terms, the bezel around the screen is extremely narrow.
Other than that, Vivo is using the familiar polycarbonate but glass-finish gradient back, adorned by a verticle triple camera module and a reliable capacitive fingerprint reader which is always within easy reach. The gradient pattern on our Sonic Blue unit is a bit flashy for our taste, but consumers will have the option for relatively sober Mirror Black and Sonic Black hues.
Thankfully, Vivo isn’t skimping on basics like dedicated microSD card slot and 3.5mm audio jack. The charging port is still micro USB, though.
In spite of the large profile, the power buttons and Volume rocker on the left edge are easily reachable. These plastic buttons are however clicky and the tactile feedback isn’t up to the mark. There is also a dedicated Google assistant button which we particularly liked, since we tend to use the Google Assistant a lot these days.
