We can surely confirm that Vivo Z1 Pro’s display is very sharp and we reviewed this extensively while moving around various parts of Singapore. The screen delivers great viewing angles. Additionally, you can adjust the colour temperature and there’s a system-wide dark mode as well.

We used this device for a bunch of multi-tasking activities including heavy usage gaming, using Maps with GPS, taking pictures / videos etc and owing to its great battery power, we were able to easily use it for over one day and a half.

When it comes to camera specifications and performance, the device comes with triple rear camera module which consists of a main 16-megapixel camera with an f/1.78 aperture, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The device also comes with front camera on the which has a 32-megapixel sensor.

While reviewing this device, we are quite impressed with the picture quality and color combination that Vivo Z1 Pro has delivered – during the day time as well as in the night environment. Natural colors are nicely coming out and there is a fair amount of detail that is being driven in the pictures.
