Vivo Z1x review; The best budget smartphone?

The Vivo Z1x comes unbelievably near the best price smartphones in India, and some software fixes will take it far.

The best price smartphone section of India is ablaze at present with various mind blowing an incentive for cash gadgets accessible for customers. One temperance of this race is the somewhat short invigorate cycles that these makers need to adhere to, to continually remain at the best of their games. The Vivo Z1x is the most up to date contestant conceived as a result of this belief system. It joins the two-month-old Vivo Z1Pro as a piece of the organization’s budget gaming cell phone portfolio.

Vivo Z1x cost in India

The Vivo Z1x is basically a rebranded Vivo Z5 that was declared for a couple of different markets prior. In India, the Z1x is accessible for Rs 16,990 for the base variation with 64GB of capacity and 6GB of RAM, and Rs 18,990 for 128GB of capacity. It will be accessible for buy beginning September 13 by means of Flipkart.


Similarly as with most cell phones in this section, the Vivo Z1x pursues the attempted and tried inclination back-multi-camera structure. Our Phantom Purple variation has a smooth violet to purple change from the inside. It looks pleasant on the off chance that you lean toward your telephones to look eye infectious. Be that as it may, it’s as yet a plastic back, and in pretty much seven days, my unit’s back looks worn out. Should’ve depended on utilizing the included silicone case.


The other real change accompanies the showcase, as the Vivo Z1x ships with a Super AMOLED show, a pattern that is yet to wind up regular with its prompt rivals. This is a 6.4-inch board with a goals of 2340 x 1080 bringing about an angle proportion of 19.5:9.

The major problem was with the brilliance. The maximum brightness was extremely sufficient, yet things weren’t extraordinary at the opposite part of the spectrum. The minimum brightness was not dull by any means, and would daze one’s eyes in diminish situations.


Snapdragon 700 series of chipsets are ending up progressively mainstream in this sub 20,000 fragment, and the Vivo Z1x takes action accordingly with a Snapdragon 712 at its heart, matched with 6GB of RAM. Be that as it may, PUBG Mobile execution was a mixed review – the game would open and begin before long, however once the ongoing gameplay would begin, the experience was damaged with frame drops, as though the telephone was attempting to render the components.


Regarding the matter of advancements, the performance significance likewise must be ascribed to the software bundle running the phone. Funtouch OS 9.1 over Android 9 Pie controls the Vivo Z1x. Aside from the previously mentioned dull mode inconveniences, there are a few spots where even the score gets substance showed under it, which is unsatisfactory in 2019.

Having said that, this skin is truly control effective and would not pointlessly deplete the battery out of sight when not being used. Customization conceivable outcomes were bounty, as well.


Batteries more than 4,000 mAh in size are a typical locating in this portion, and the Vivo Z1x is the same, coming in at 4,500 mAh. Indeed, it’s somewhat less than the one fueling the Z1 Pro, however increases a lot quicker charging capacities and moves to a USB Type-C association, which are both more essential to me than a barely greater battery.


The no. of cameras on budget cell phones has expanded rather quickly, and the Vivo Z1x is the same, with three of them adorning the back. We get an essential 48MP f/1.8 essential camera, a 8MP ultra-wide shooter and a 5MP profundity sensor.

The essential camera actualizes the Sony IMX582 picture sensor which is fundamentally the same as the renowned IMX586 and just comes up short on the capacity to shoot 4k video at 60fps. Aside from that, it works similarly, utilizing pixel binning for 12MP last photographs. The shading interpretation and dynamic range were extremely exact and satisfying to the eye, and there was generally no screen slack.

Verdict and our Opinion

Vivo has made an enormous showing with buffing up the current Z1 Pro and bringing significant overhauls that are certain to be valued by potential purchasers.

On the off chance that conceivable, we would suggest holding up till the Realme XT, the Redmi Note 8 Pro and the Vivo V17 come to India in the next months as incredible options in this sub Rs 20,000 section.
