Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro has 3 cameras at the back and main the camera is so amazing that it can take some amazing shots. The Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro main Camera is 64 megapixel F/1.9. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.9, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be. This Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro can record video at 4K at 60 FPS. This is amazing the video will contain more details thanks to its good optimization software and the high-end processor. You can also record 1080P at 120FPS which will be slow motion. There is Digital image stabilization on the main lens only. Which is no impressive as the optical image stabilization but, this will make the camera experience more stable and more accurate. The Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro has 3 more camera lenses. Let’s talk about that in detail.

|Video resolution||1080p (Full HD) at 30 FPS|
When it comes to selfie cameras I’m a little disappointed. Because it’s a MId-Flagship smartphone from Vivo and it only has a 16MP camera. I mean Samsung and Xiaomi are giving 32MP selfie cameras on their Midrange smartphones. And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.0 which means the photos will look accurate as other smartphones, also this camera will catch a lot of light in night because of that wider aperture. The camera video capabilities are also kept at 1080P at 30FPS only. Which is also not enough for a higher MId-Flagship smartphone from Vivo.
|Wi-Fi standard||Wi-Fi 6|
|USB type||USB Type-C|
This Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro is launching with the Wi-Fi 6 which is faster, more efficient and gives you less latency when compared to the Wi-Fi 5. Which will make the user experience smoother and faster. There is also the support of Bluetooth 5.2. Which is also faster and more efficient than version 5.1. Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro has the USB type C gen 3.1 support which makes sense because of the 66 watts of fast wire charging so it must need more bandwidth for charging speeds. It also helps with the data transfer because it helps with the faster read and write speeds. Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro also has NFC support which is also useful. You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to the NFC support.
|Headphone audio jack||No|
The Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro comes with stereo speakers. This Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro has nice sound quality with a nice amount of bass in it. This will help in gaming because there are two speakers one at the bottom and one at the top which will help gamers. Video watching and hearing to music also going to be good. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is neither good nor bad.
|Colors||Phantom Dusk, Legion Sky|
The Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro is going to lunch in three different colors. Phantom Dusk, Legion Sky. Vivo is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the Phantom Dusk color because it looks better than these two colors.
This smartphone is costing around $400 which is great at this point. You got better specs with better design, which is totally worth it.
If you are looking for a good camera phone, good gaming phone, good design, good display, and amazing performance then this Vivo iQOO Z6 Pro is worth buying. Because it has all the needs that a good consumer needs.
