Vivo’s latest offering — the Vivo Z1x — is an example of how a company can take a winning product and improve on it to cater to even more people. Vivo has taken everything that was good about the Vivo Z1 Pro and has made some tangible enhancements, such as more capable camera hardware, an AMOLED screen, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The improvements brought by the Vivo Z1x are certainly welcome, but they all come at a premium. This raises the all-too-important questions — is the Vivo Z1x a worthy sibling, and is the starting price of Rs. 16,990 justifiable? Dive right in and find the answers in our review.
Vivo Z1x display and performance:- The Vivo Z1x’s Super AMOLED panel is sufficiently bright and crisp, and renders vibrant colours. The colour output is slightly cold by default, but one can adjust the colour mode and temperature in the Settings app. The viewing angles are also quite good and there is minimal colour shift when viewing content at an angle. Under daylight, we did not feel any need to crank the brightness up beyond the halfway mark to read emails and use social media apps comfortably, but the reflective nature of the display sometimes proved problematic while watching videos.
About Camera:- As far as the cameras are concerned, the Vivo Z1x on the rear packs a 48-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.79 aperture; a second 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a third 2-megapixel camera. The rear camera setup has autofocus. It sports a 32-megapixel camera on the front for selfies, with an f/2.0 aperture.
