hi from z1 pro user, i just got it recently from last saturday,
coming from mi max prime for me z1 pro is a big upgrade, its felt much premium despite its price point with antutu 7 score of 180k+ it really is reliable and the perform really good compared to my old phone.
the screen indeed not amoled yet the quality is still an upgrade for me (felt much slimmer tho, harder to read manga now).
camera is also an upgrade on this phone, wide angle, 1080 60fps, 4k, cool.
mini usb port is not a big deal for me as long it still support double engine fast charging, really not an issue at all.
at first RN7, realme 3 pro, oppo k3, realme x, a50, a70 came into my consideration, but i ditched oppo k3 and realme x since for me memory card slot is a must, RN7 is kinda good alternative but i felt the screen is kinda too small for me and the i dont wanna see unwanted ads on my phone, as for a50 is a good option but its priced more in my region and with the trade off of performance, and a70 is kinda overpriced for me.
it has plastic body yes, but i dont mind, plastic body is more durable than glass for me, and either way i will put jelly case on it so not a big deal at all.
5000mah is realllyyy cool..
for me for the price vs performance, vivo z1 pro is worth every penny at least for now
GAMIRSFM, 14 Aug 2019A20 Cost less than 200$ and it has Type-C and AMOLED display...Also a20 packed with the wayyy inferior soc than z1 pro, dont forget about camera, you must try to compare that a20 cannot compete z1 pro camera

This phone can be used as a power bank also, it has reverse charging system

I have no idea about the previous versions of funtouch OS but this one is really user-friendly, almost similar to iOS. Realme 's colour OS is the terrible os which I have ever seen, its menu, settings etc are very complicated and not at all user-friendly. I had used one Asus Zenfone Max M1 before, which I found the most user-friendly interface.
This vivo cannot be compared with xiaomi redmi note 7 series. The UI, design of this phone so terrible than redmi note 7. The premium feel design, material and bunch of MIUI features of redmi note 7 is unbeatable from the price segment.

If you check Vivo Phone then the pattern is that handsets which have rear fingerprint unlocks will not have Always On.
Handsets which has onscreen fingerprint unlocks will have Always On which is ridiculous
NEWBEE, 14 Aug 2019I don't understand? A20 costs 200EUR / 16000INR and Vivo Z1 costs 190Eur / 15000 INR based on ... moreEU and Indian pricing and taxations are different. DO NOT rely on this site for pricing on your region.
I find it funny that gsmarena didn't do a battery test this time. I guess that was intentional to not get their sponsors (popular brands) mad
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2019funtouch os.... not so funIt is better than Colour OS, from my personal experience I am telling
In my personal experience, Funtouch OS is much more convenient than Colour OS. Changing a ringtone to custom ringtone is very easy in Vivo, we have a option to choose the songs as well as the alphabets. Where as in Colour OS it is very difficult, we need to scroll and search all the songs to find the ringtones.
Same way in Vivo wifi hotspot is present in the drop menu but in colour OS we need to choose it from settings, tethering etc like that which is a lengthy thing.
I am a proud owner of Z1 Pro. This is my first Vivo and I am impressed. I was using a Galaxy A50 and was very satisfied with the phone. When Z1 Pro launched I have a feeling of purchasing it especially because of its features and looks. So I purchased the 6 gb 128 gb version from Flipkart and started using it as the primary phone. A50 is sleeping in my shelf now, I will use it only for photos
Kaushy, 14 Aug 2019Z1Pro has the identical capacity hardware and other configs as compared to S1 and both are lau... moreThere's no "always on" feature because it is only feasible with AMOLED display. Every LPS display don't have it because of a technical reason, not only Z1.
By the way did anyone knows when will Z1 pro 6Gb released in Indonesia? I'm interested but want it also a bit futureproof.
