Suggested January 2024 Vivo Z1 Pro Review: The Best Looking Mid

About this review: I wrote the vivo Z1 Pro review after spending over a week with it as my primary phone. The review unit was supplied by vivo India and was running Android Pie with Funtouch OS onboard. The software version at the time of testing was PD1911F_EX_A_1.5.3

vivo Z1 Pro: The big picture

The vivo Z1 Pro comes in at a price point that has no dearth of alternatives. While features like an innovative design should help it stand out, the online-first strategy caters to a more informed buyer. As such, the heavy-handed approach towards software on the vivo Z1 Pro could end up being a speed bump on the road to success.

18-watt fast charger

USB cable

SIM ejector tool

TPU Case


Quick start manual

Warranty Card

The vivo Z1 Pro delivers a well-rounded retail package. Inside, you will find everything you need to get started off with the phone. The TPU case is a nice addition to keep the phone free of grubby fingerprints. While the quick start manual and warranty papers are standard fare, it is nice to see a pair of earphones thrown in the box.


Punch-hole display

Polycarbonate build

162.4 x 77.3 x 8.9mm



6.53-inch IPS LCD

Full HD+ (~395 ppi)


19.5:9 aspect ratio


Snapdragon 712

2 x 2.3GHz Kryo 360 Gold

6 x 1.7GHz Kryo 360 Silver

Adreno 616


64/128GB ROM

microSD expansion

The vivo Z1 Pro is the first phone in India to sport the Snapdragon 712 chipset. A small upgrade over the Snapdragon 710, it claims a slight boost in performance through a higher peak clock speed. Packing the same GPU as the Snapdragon 710, you shouldn’t expect much of an upgrade in performance here. Of course, this is still a reasonably power-packed chipset that can run almost anything you throw at it.



18W Fast charging

Packing a gigantic 5,000mAh battery and a fairly frugal mid-range processor, battery life is plenty good. I was a bit surprised to observe that activities like web browsing took a bigger toll than I’d have thought. In our battery testing, the phone didn’t fare much better than the Redmi Note 7S, a phone with a significantly smaller battery.

Regardless, the phone will handily last a full day of use and then some. With mixed use, I observed between six to seven hours of screen-on-time. When it is time to charge up the phone, the vivo Z1 Pro supports fast charging. Charging the battery from scratch took just about 138 minutes, a fairly respectable time. 

Android Pie

Funtouch OS

Significant bloatware

Software on the vivo Z1 Pro is where things start getting complicated. Yes, the phone runs Android 9 Pie, but has the extremely heavy-handed Funtouch OS skin on top. Simply put, the entire user experience is completely different from how stock Android approaches it. If you are coming from a different smartphone launcher, you might face a significant learning curve here.

Starting off from the home screen, there is no app drawer to speak of. All icons are tossed on the homescreen itself, along with a limited few options to customise the experience. The option to switch the icon layout to a denser grid is hidden deep under settings. Over on the left-most pane, you will notice a widgets pane for quick shortcuts and vivo’s Jovi smart assistant.

Amongst all the bloat, you can find some smart hidden additions.

On the other hand, there are a few smart additions too. Case in point being the “Motorbike Mode” that can reject all incoming calls or automatically reply with a message. Similarly, you will find a one-handed mode hidden away in the settings. As the name suggests, it lets you scale down the viewable size to one that makes it easy to use with one hand.


Rear camera:

16MP f/1.8 aperture

8MP, f/2.2 16mm ultrawide

2MP depth sensor

32MP, f/2.0 front camera

4K 60FPS Video


The 8MP wide-angle camera adds a lot of versatility to the set up and definitely comes in handy when trying to capture large buildings, landscapes, or just a big group of people.

Even with the beauty mode turned all the way down, it appears there is some smoothening going on when shooting with the front facing camera. Images have a mild saturation boost and look ready to go up on social media, which might be of interest to you if you’re big on shooting selfies. Similarly for 4K videos, the footage was fairly unremarkable with noticeable over-sharpening. The lack of electronic stabilisation means you will have to work extra-hard to reduce camera shake.


Equipped with a headphone jack, the vivo Z1 Pro is a rather good option if you listen to a lot of music. We tested the output over wired headphones and found the music reproduction to have a neutral sound signature. 

The downward-firing speaker gets quite loud but can crackle just a bit at high volumes. Don’t expect much in terms of sound quality but if you take a lot of phone calls on the loudspeaker, the vivo Z1 Pro will serve in a pinch. 

vivo Z1 Pro: 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM — 14,990 rupees (~$215)

vivo Z1 Pro: 6GB RAM, 64GB ROM — 16,990 rupees (~$245)

vivo Z1 Pro: 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM — 17,990 rupees (~$257)

There’s no doubting the value here. The hardware is for the most part, as good as it gets. The vivo Z1 Pro packs enough oomph to satisfy all gamers on a budget. The camera leaves a bit to be desired and that is one area where the Redmi Note 7 Pro pulls ahead by leaps and bounds. However, if you want something a bit more versatile, the wide-angle camera on the Z1 Pro proves to be the better option. 

vivo Z1 Pro review: Verdict

The vivo Z1 Pro is a very good effort by the brand to appeal to the online-only audience. Between the good-looking design, versatile camera, and a larger battery, there is enough here to recommend the phone as a competent mid-ranger. 

I wasn’t too convinced by the software skin, Micro-USB charging port, and the quality of the display, but once you look past it, this is a smartphone that can handily hold its own against the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the realme 3 Pro. The vivo Z1 Pro is definitely worth a second look if you are in the market for a new mid-range smartphone.

Eskute Polluno Pro Review: Mid


Mid-drive motor with torque sensor

Comfortable to ride

Decent display



May be too large for shorter riders

No gear indicator

Not available in the US

Our Verdict

The Eskute Polluno Pro is a decent e-bike for commuting and with its torque sensor, comfortable, noiseless ride and step-through design it’s great for everyday use. It is heavy, though, and shorter riders may find it too big.

As cycle-to-work initiatives continue to grow in availability and popularity, there has been a corresponding rise in the number of e-bikes aimed solely at commuters. And if the hypothetical Joe/Jane Bloggs needs one to ride to the office, dressed to impress in the boardroom, there are a few important design considerations.

The bike must be comfortable, it must fit a variety of shapes and sizes, it should be safe and easy to manoeuvre in traffic and most importantly, it must look at least somewhat classy. This, of course, is a difficult set of priorities to balance at any budget, and so the likes of the Eskute Polluno Pro have their work cut out.

Targeted at those who want to ditch the car and get to work in style without breaking the bank, the Polluno Pro emphasises a ‘noiseless’ design, a torque sensor and a long range of up to 80 miles as its main selling points.

But with some serious competition at this price, does it do enough to earn our recommendation? Read on for our full review.

Features & design

Step-through design

Mid-drive Bafang motor

The first thing you see is the Polluno Pro’s step-through frame design, which makes it easier to mount than a ‘normal’ bike, and that’s something you’ll appreciate if you’re wearing your work clothes.

The recommended height range is 160-200cm, so shorter riders under about 5ft3 (162cm) could find it difficult or impossible to ride, and there is no option of a smaller frame. That’s the first compromise, them.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The second thing you notice is the large motor assembly between the pedals. That’s because this is mid-drive bike: the motor isn’t in the rear wheel hub as it is with most e-bikes.

Eskute has opted for the M200 system from Bafang, a well-respected manufacturer in the e-bike world.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The massive battery contributes to the high overall weight of the bike, which at 27.5kg is difficult to lug it up a flight of stairs. This could be an issue for those who live in a flat and can’t store the bike outdoors.

Fortunately, the battery can be removed and/or locked in place using the provided keys, and a full charge took around 5 hours on average.

We found in general use that the Polluno Pro was comfortable to ride. The saddle had enough padding to make even extended rides a breeze, while the front suspension did a good job of absorbing lumps and bumps on the road, working particularly well on cobbles.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The disc brakes, too, proved to be tight and responsive, even at higher speeds.

There’s a control panel mounted on the left handlebar, with a power button, buttons for power assist levels and an on/off button for the headlights. Though there isn’t any way to differentiate between the buttons by touch alone, the layout lent itself to quick, easy changes on the fly.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The display is separate, in the middle of the handlebars. It displays only trip distance, remaining power and the current speed. There’s no app or Bluetooth, which may be a good thing depending upon your preference.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The Polluno Pro has nine-speed gears, which were smooth in operation and welcome when tackling steep hills in particular. But we would have liked an indicator to show which gear you’re in.


While many electric bikes ‘whine’ when the motor is working hard, the Polluno Pro promises not to. And in general this proved to be true. Where you might not hear the whine of many rival bikes over traffic, you’ll be hard pressed to hear the Polluno Pro even when there are no cars at all.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

The motor does emit a noise, but it is so minimal as to be totally insignificant.

Whether this is a real benefit in everyday use is really down to where you ride and how much you care about it. I certainly enjoyed the quiet.

More important is the use of a torque sensor in that mid-drive motor assembly. In many budget e-bikes a cadence sensor is used, but a torque sensor means that the motor will try to match the pressure used when pedalling to apply power, making for a much smoother ride in general.

The benefits of this setup are clear out on the road, in traffic in particular. Where cadence sensors can cause jerky movements, the Polluno Pro leaves the rider feeling completely in control, a big win for a bike intended to be used on the commute.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

Five power settings are offered, and thanks to the 65Nm of torque on offer – considerably more than you get with most e-bikes at this sort of price – there’s plenty of assistance for getting up hills.

Sean Cameron / Foundry

In general use, I found that range was around half, mixing in some hill riding and some more difficult terrain. If you commute to work every day, this is a bike which will need charged at least twice per week, depending heavily on the length of said commute.

However, this isn’t bad at all, and the Polluno Pro has better range than quite a lot of rivals.

Price & Availability

Eskute is a direct-to-consumer company, so if you’re tempted by the Polluno Pro, head straight to its website where prices start at £1899. You get a two-year warranty as standard.

There’s also a Polluno – without the Pro – which is almost identical, but doesn’t have the mid-drive motor and uses a rear-wheel hub motor and cadence sensor instead. This is £1299, so is quite a bit cheaper and shows how much of a premium you pay for the Bafang M200.

Unfortunately, Eskute doesn’t yet sell electric bikes in the US.

Naturally, there are several alternatives you might want to consider. One is Eleglide’s T1 Step-Thru which offers the same frame design, but at a significantly lower price, albeit without the upmarket (and powerful) Bafang mid-drive motor.

At £1595 the MiRider One might appeal for a different kind of commute. Though it has a shorter range (45 miles) it is lighter and as a consequence will be easier to take on public transport if necessary, not least because it folds up.

For the same price – £1595 – the Raleigh Array offers more traditional looks, but also lacks the finesse of the mid-drive motor.

And Eskute has other models you might like, too, including the Netuno.

See more in our roundup of the best electric bikes.


There’s no shortage of e-bikes designed for commuting. To be successful requires a certain blend of features and although the Eskute Polluno Pro might not have all of these, it does enough to deserve attention.

With a comfortable ride, a sophisticated torque sensor and mostly silent operation, it will be a reliable workhorse for anyone looking to get to the office and back without fuss.

But it is exceptionally heavy and the large frame doesn’t cater for shorter riders. If neither of these things bother you, and you can afford the price, the Polluno Pro is a great choice.

In this context, this will mean a bike that performs well and with no individual component that feels like a compromise.

Vivo V25 Pro Review: A Camera Phone With Style

The Breakdown



If you’re in the market for a good camera phone with impressive color changing variant, curved display experience and Dimensity-fast performance, then the Vivo V25 Pro at a price of Rs. 35,999 is a great recommendation.

Selfie Camera




However, this year the Vivo V25 Pro boasts an impressive, curved display, a multicolor back side and a different 32MP Selfie Camera sensor – a step down from the huge 50MP selfie snapper of its predecessor (V23 Pro). The mid-range device arrived in Gizchina HQ along with its budget brother (V25) and we got to play with them for several days.

Check out here our thoughts on these two beauties in this review.

Vivo V25 Pro Design

The Vivo V25 Pro comes with impressive curves on its sides, adding up to a sleek design. It’s easy to hold in your hands, it weighs a mere 190 grams, and with a size of 158.9 x 73.5 x 8.6 mm it’s no hassle to carry it either. Even though it’s a mid-range device, I loved the build quality, and how comfortable it was to hold in my hands during work or leisure.

It seems delicate though, be careful not to let it drop or else… havoc could break loose.

Vivo V25 Pro Display

Equipped with a 6.56-inches AMOLED panel, V25 Pro delivered a rich viewing experience during our review; Impressive brightness, healthy color depiction and excellent viewing angles thanks to the curved edges and the extra thin bezels. I used the phone under direct sunlight for all sorts of tasks – from daily social media browsing to binge watch shows and was quite impressed.

One of its main characteristics is the 120Hz refresh rate, something found mostly in flagship models of other competitors, and a sharp fingerprint sensor – quite quick with almost 85% success.

My only issue with the screen brightness is that it tends to get too dim when set on automatic. This can be good when watching videos or using social media in low light environments, but not when you need the phone the most: during work, driving or replying to messages.


The Vivo V25 Pro is packed with a Mediatek Dimensity 1300 SoC. That’s a small improvement compared to the previous model (V23 Pro) and its Dimensity 1200 chipset. If you had both phones, then you won’t see any significant difference in daily use. In any case, the V25 Pro can easily cope with most of our heavy professional tasks, while playing some notorious titles (such as Asphalt 9) was a pleasing experience. I saw no lags, or frame drops for almost 50 minutes of playing, but I experienced a small overheating at the back of the device. It was normal after playing a so demanding game and had no impact on the performance of the phone.

If you’re a gamer, or a music lover then the single speaker of the device will probably disappoint you. It offers a flat sound, but on the other hand it’s quite loud. One more thing to know also, is the absence of a 3.5mm audio jack, so you will have to rely on a Bluetooth connection for your earphones.

FunTouchOS 12

One other thing that wasn’t that… fun, was the FunTouch OS 12. It’s the skin that equips both the Vivo V25 and V25 Pro. It’s a typical Android 12 based skin that is however filled with a lot of bloatware (pre-installed apps), like as Josh, Moj a Browser app and others that sadly cannot be uninstalled. The whole experience is not bad – but it could be much better.

Vivo V25 Pro Photography

Even though the previous V23 Pro was a pure selfie phone, this isn’t the case with the new model. This one packs an impressive 64 MP OIS primary camera that can do miracles in low light conditions, shooting high-in-contrast pictures with a minor saturation effect here and there and decent videos. I loved the 10X zoom that can prove helpful in various aspects of photography, with impressive amount of details.

Gizchina News of the week

Don’t expect miracles in terms of selfie shots however. The front facing camera of the Vivo V25 Pro lacks the clarity of the previous model. Still it delivers decent daylight photos for social media chúng tôi 8MP wide-angle lens is decent as well. Selfies with portrait mode look lively, clear, true to the skin tone and detect the edges sharply.

The selfie fans will love the preinstalled customizations by Vivo, along with some interesting editing options (tens of filters, beautification mode, cute bokeh flare effects, double exposure mode, long exposure etc).

If you’re a video fan, then you will be pleased to know that the Vivo V25 Pro comes with 4K video recording at 30 or 60fps. It also has OIS support for excellent daylight videos. As one would expect, there are options for time-lapse and slo-mo modes. There’s also a Vlog Movie app that can easily transform our videos into Instagram/TikTok wonders in just a few steps.

Vivo V25 Pro Battery life

It was a blast using the device – in terms of battery life – I must admit. The V25 Pro comes with a 4830mAh battery, that can easily withstand any pro performance offering up to 26 hours of usage.

I used the phone for a whole day during – for review purposes. 30 minutes of phone calls, extensive social media use, texting via messenger/viber, several mail exchanging, listening to music for 45 minutes. At the end of it it had 28% of battery left. However with 66W FlashCharging support, it took around 50 minutes to get a full recharge.

My opinion

The mid-range camera market welcomes another Vivo V Series pair of phones. Unlike its predecessor, the V25 Pro focuses more on its main camera. It’s aimed at photography enthusiasts with improved night light photos, more scenes/settings/camera tweaks. Despite having a lesser quality camera sensor, I haven’t faced any major quality drop in the daylight selfies.

I loved the Mediatek Dimensity 1300 chipset performance during this review. It slightly overheated only after extensive mobile gaming for over 50 minutes. Still managed to easily cover all my professional everyday needs with no trouble at all. That curved display? It’s a beauty both to hold and to look at! It’s rare to find such a display panel at a phone of this price range, with impressive performance all day long.

We’ve talked about the new selfie camera in this review. It’s a step down from the previous model, with mediocre night light photos, but a lot of new AI scenes, face features, extensive “pro” settings and even more.

And some more…

I liked the color-changing back side of the Sailing Blue variant, but surely it’s not a killer characteristic for buyers. I could live without it. Easily. The FunTouchOS 12 wasn’t of my liking. It has a LOT of bloatware, some applications that cannot be uninstalled and a lot of ad pop-ups from the native Vivo AppStore that can be very annoying. It runs on Android 12 however which is good and can get up to 2 major OS upgrades.

So… if you’re in the market for a good camera phone with an impressive color changing option, a curved display experience, and Dimensity-fast performance, then the Vivo V25 Pro priced at Rs. 35,999 is a great recommendation.

Realme 2 Pro Camera Review: Decent Enough But Not The Best

The new Realme 2 Pro, which was launched earlier today, is being hailed as a contender which can challenge the dominance of Xiaomi, and in our review, the new Realme device proved that it definitely packs a punch. A faster processor, a hefty 8GB of RAM and an improved imaging hardware are the upgrades brought by the Realme 2 Pro, but is the device’s camera performance really worth the hype or is it just another budget dual camera smartphone? Let’s find out.

Realme 2 Pro: Imaging Hardware

The Realme 2 Pro packs a 16MP + 2MP dual rear camera set-up which employs a Sony IMX398 CMOS sensor with a 6-element lens and has an F1.7 aperture. The rear camera set-up boasts of Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), a feature which aims to minimize blurring and compensate for shaking while recording a video. On the front, there is a 16MP sensor with an F2.0 aperture.

On paper, the Realme 2’s imaging hardware sounds quite promising, but when it comes to delivering on that promise, well, its an altogether different story.

Daylight Photography

The Realme 2 Pro captures some decent quality images with a sufficient amount of detail under daylight, with vibrant colors and adequate depth. But there are a few issues which prevent the daylight shots from being called truly impressive, and these drawbacks have a lot to do with the smartphone’s image processing.




The overexposure issue is particularly evident in the case of images which have a rich color profile, because the overexposure and excessive brightening effect not only affects the overall color production, it ends up making the photos look dull.

When it comes to the front camera’s performance, I am honestly confused whether to rate the Realme 2 Pro as a capable selfie machine or one that fails to live up to its promise. First of all, the device’s overprocessing effect again comes to play here, which means the selfies turn out to be overly bright, so the skin tone appears to be lighter than it actually is, and also, there is a lot of smoothening without even applying any beautification effects.








The Realme 2 Pro is capable of recording 4K, FullHD and HD videos at 30FPS, and honestly, at that price point, I surely don’t have any qualms about the lack of ability to record videos at a 60FPS. Nonetheless, the Realme 2 Pro can record some decent quality videos, provided you employ a tripod or you have some really stable hands. Why?

Well, there is no Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to compensate for the blurring caused by haphazard hand movements, and the Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) feature onboard the Realme 2 Pro can only help you in your videography endeavors to a limited extent.

The verdict? Well, the videos do capture an adequate amount of detail, the blurring and shaking are simply too much for my liking, and there is a lot of grainy texture and inaccurate color reproduction too. Take a look at the video recording samples to decide for yourself.

Realme 2 Pro Camera Review: How Does It Fare?

On a concluding note, the Realme 2 Pro emerges as a decent enough performer in our photography test. Daylight photography is certainly not the Realme 2 Pro’s forte, but it makes up for the shortcoming in low-light photography and delivers some impressive bokeh shots in indoor conditions with dim light.

But overall, I would prefer the Xiaomi Mi A2 as a more capable imaging device, but that doesn’t mean the Realme 2 Pro is below par. In terms of overall value, which includes aesthetics, performance and battery performance, the Realme 2 Pro is a really compelling smartphone.
