A distinguished design
The aesthetic trend of this year is very clear even though we have not even reached half. Glass finish, metal frame, minimal edges, elongated screen …
This Vivo Z1 has it all and reflects it in the mid-range, something that is not very common.
It is slightly reminiscent of the Huawei P20 Lite due to the format, the position of the fingerprint sensor and the double rear camera in vertical position in the left area.
Power worthy of a large midrange
The Snapdragon 660 is not a processor that has been lavished too much but with the recent announcement of its successor, the Snapdragon 710, we may see it in more models. It is accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory.
The rear camera is double but it has a main 13 Mpx sensor accompanied by a secondary one that is only supportive, with 2 Mpx. The front camera is 12 Mpx.
The battery is not bad for the weight of the mobile, with 3260 mAh. It also has bluetooth 5.0.
The Android version is 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.0, the graphic layer of this manufacturer.
