Verdict

Again we see the unassailable Poco F1 from Xiaomi offering breakthrough specs at a very minimalistic price. Although the Snapdragon 845 is more than a year old it is still a flagship level chipset and is quite definitely faster than the brand new Snapdragon 712. However, the triple-cameras and the wide variety of shooting options give it an edge over the Poco F1.

The Galaxy A50 also comes with a triple-camera setup but the Exynos chipset did not hold up very well in our review of the device. As for the Moto One Vision, the 48 MP camera certainly scores brownie points for the device but it cancelled out due to a lack of ultra-wide which is present in the Vivo Z1 Pro. Any way you slice it, there are things that competing phones have that Z1 Pro doesn’t and vice versa.
