Vivo Z1 VS Vivo Y83

Vivo Z1 VS Vivo Y83: Good mid-range smartphones from Vivo. There’s a reason why Chinese OEM company Vivo is among the top seven largest phone makers in the world. In 2018, the company has succeeded in manufacturing mid-range smartphones with impressive features. One thing I personally like about Vivo’s mid-range devices is their hardware.

These chipsets are among the best in the mid-range segment right now. The Vivo Z1 and Vivo Y83 are in direct competition with each other due to their price range. So let’s see which one offers the better quality-price ratio between the Vivo Z1 and Vivo Y83.
