2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Attractive, eye-catching glossy plastic rear panel with a beautiful multi-coloured gradient finish, that catches the light as you tilt the phone around
  • The front is sharp and modern with a 6.54-inch Full HD+ display, thin bezels, and a punch-hole camera on the top-left corner of the display
  • On the whole, the Z1 Pro is arguably the best designed phone of this price segment
  • Has a handy dedicated Google Assistant button
  • Large, sharp Full HD+ display, with good viewing angles, and sunlight legibility - you get an immersive experience while watching videos, playing games and consuming other multimedia content on it
  • Vivo's Funtouch OS UI is fairly feature packed, and aesthetically is similar to iOS
  • There is also now a ‘Dark Mode’ feature that turns almost all the popular apps dark
  • The Vivo Z1 Pro also has a gaming assistant and mode rolled into one called Game Cube - it offers functions like blocking background calls, blocking notifications, reject calls during gaming, turning on Esports Mode and other things
  • Excellent, class-leading performance with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor - you will get snappy performance all-round, and even high-end games will run effortlessly in their 'high graphics' settings
  • The smartphone also has good temperature control, so even with long times of gaming, there isn't much heating up
  • Good set of triple rear cameras (16-megapixel primary camera + 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera + 2-megapixel depth sensor)
  • You get some pretty detailed photos in most lighting conditions - the color reproduction and balancing is quite accurate as well
  • On the front, it comes with a excellent 32-megapixel snapper, which again does very well with details
  • Overall, this is a good camera setup for the price bracket, and only a bit behind the top cameras of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, and the Realme 3 Pro
  • Excellent battery life, with a huge 5000mAh battery - you will get a comfortable 2 days even with heavier use
  • Fast charging support - the device goes from 0 to 100% in 2 hours - which is pretty decent for the battery size
  • The Z1 Pro looks like a smart winner from the Vivo camp, with hardly any flaws, and an excellent performance to price ratio - if you value performance in a phone, or are into gaming, this is the mid-range phone to get - if you are looking for the best possible cameras instead, then the Redmi Note 7 Pro, and Realme 3 Pro have a slight advantage
  • Quite pristine design - the Realme 6 has a gradient finish with multiple streaks running down the back, converging at the bottom centre - it shines when light hits it, giving the phone a premium look
  • Trendy, modern hole-punch design at the front, which isn't very common at this price point
  • Compared to the Realme 5, the Realme 6 has a rounded, curvier back that makes it more ergonomic to hold
  • The side-mounted fingerprint scanner is quick and accurate
  • Face unlock is super quick and combined with raise-to-wake feature, makes for a seamless unlocking experience
  • Good, large 6.5 inches full-HD+ IPS display with thin bezels and new punch-hole camera - the colours and peak brightness of the screen are good
  • The display has a 90Hz refresh rate which helps the smartphone deliver a smooth experience - games that support 90Hz displays, like Alto's Odyssey, are particularly enjoyable to play
  • Software is one place where Realme has taken a big leap, the Realme UI is easy to use - it is also feature packed, such as Digital Wellbeing, Focus Mode, Dark Mode, and Riding Mode among others - there are some interesting and useful features like Realme Dual-Mode Audio, which allows you to connect a Bluetooth and a wired headset at the same time to listen to music on the smartphone
  • Super snappy performance with the powerful MediaTek Helio G90T - day to day tasks are a breeze on this phone, applications open quickly, RAM management is quite good and multitasking is also handled well - the phone breezes through medium and high-level graphic-intensive games like PUBG, which runs smoothly
  • Good quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP Ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP monochrome camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • In daylight, primary camera captures some fine-looking shots with a good amount of detail and dynamic range, it is quick to focus and meter light properly in most scenarios - image processing does a good job at adding punchy-ness to the colours
  • The wide-angle camera is decent and offer a wide field of view which comes handy in tight places and capturing more area - warping on the edges is taken care of decently through software (though, the quality isn't as good as the primary sensor)
  • Selfies shot with the Realme 6 have good detail, and beautification is enabled by default, photos are good enough to be shared on social media - you can take portrait shots, panoramas and even time-lapse videos with the front camera
  • The new black and white monochrome lens helps take great monochrome portraits - this lens helps the main sensor grab a wider spectrum of greys, hence adding more richness and texture to portrait shots
  • Battery life on the Realme 6 is quite good with the 4300 mAh cell, manages to go on for over a day and a half before needing to be plugged in
  • The 30W fast charging is unheard of at this price and that too with bundled charger in the box - the phone gets to 65 percent in 30 minutes and took a little over an hour to charge completely
  • The Realme 6 is a power-packed phone that's definitely one of the most interesting offerings in its price segment - with segment-first features like a 90Hz display and 30W fast charging, it is one of the best smartphones money can buy in this price segment - the Helio G90T is a great performer, the quad-camera setup offers versatility, and Realme's UI is quite good too
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • On the heavy and bulky side (thanks to the large battery it packs)
  • The display does not have a Widevine L1 certification - as a result, you can stream videos available on the over-the-top platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos at a maximum resolution of only 480p — not HD or fullHD
  • For people who like a stock Android interface though, Funtouch OS may not be to their taste (once again, it's more iOS like in its aesthetic, and also packs some bloatware)
  • A bit thick at 9.6mm
  • The rear panel isn't glass, and could pick up minor scuffs and scratches (though, it's more durable and light-weight)
  • There are still a number of pre-loaded apps however - though most of these can thankfully be uninstalled
  • The macro lens doesn't really excel at what it is supposed to do, the detailing of the images is low because of the very low 2MP resolution (though, it help take closer shots of smaller subjects)
  • In low-light, the camera quality is average - pictures turned out to be hazy and grainy
