Vivo Z1 Pro build and design

It has a polycarbonate design and the back has the fingerprint sensor. The device has a hole punch style notch and the chin is not really that huge. The phone is slightly big to hold because of the internal 5000 mAh battery. It’s not really meant for one-handed usage because of the big 6.53″ FHD+ display. But for gamers and media consumers alike the device is a good choice.
