The Vivo Z1 Pro is the official smartphone for PUBG Mobile Club Open championship and as such, it comes with some nifty features primarily made for playing PUBG Mobile. This includes a special training center, 4D vibrations, voice changer and some more. The Z1 Pro is also quite powerful under the hood, featuring the Snapdragon 712 along with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. On the back is a triple-camera setup which is the weak point in the phone. It tends to take over-saturated and over-processed photos which might not be up everyone’s taste. The Z1 Pro’s design is also top-notch (or should we say no notch?), since the front camera is drilled into the display. The back is gradient plastic and does feel a little cheap when held against the likes of the all-glass Redmi Note 7 Pro. We recommend the Vivo Z1 Pro only if you are serious about PUBG Mobile.
