Vivo Z1Pro vs Redmi Note 7 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy M40: The competition in the budget smartphone segment is getting hotter and hotter! The latest entrant in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment is the Vivo Z1Pro, launched by the Chinese smartphone manufacturer in India last week. Unlike Vivo's other smartphones in the country which go on sale through offline channels and retailers, the Vivo Z1Pro has been designed to cater the Gen Z through online platforms. The smartphone will only be available through Flipkart and Vivo India E-store, starting July 11.
The latest offering by Vivo has been positioned as a powerful gaming device with country's first Qualcomm Snapgragon 712 Processor and will take on the likes on Redmi Note 7 Pro and Samsung Galaxy M40 in India, both launched earlier this year. All the three smartphones come with similar price tags but cater different set of users. Here is a detailed comparison that will allow you to choose between these budget smartphones:

Both Redmi Note 7 Pro and Samsung Galaxy M40 come with 6.3-inch displays with full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) resolution with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. However, the Z1Pro offers you a slightly bigger screen. It features a 6.53-inch display with 19.5:9 super wide view and FHD+ (2340X1080 pixels). The screen size suits those who spend more hours on gaming or for consuming media. But, at the same time it makes the smartphone tough to fit into your palms.
The other difference you could find here is that while the Xiaomi smartphone comes with a waterdrop-style notch, the Samsung Galaxy M40 comes with a punch-hole display. And, the Z1Pro too has got an in-display front camera which is the company name of the punch-hole display.

All the three smartphones offer impressive batteries as well. The Redmi Note 7 Pro is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery and the Samsung Galaxy M40 comes with a 3,500mAh battery. But, the Z1Pro gets the biggest 5,000 mAh battery making it ideal for long term usage.
Which smartphone suits you best?
If you are only looking at performance, than Z1Pro is the best bet. The smartphone offers a powerful processor along with an impressive battery. But, it is a heavy device and not the slimmest phone available in the market. Despite that you can expect value for money from this machine. Meanwhile, if you are looking to buy a smartphone for better photography, then Redmi Note 7 Pro fits the description best. In case you are the more balanced buyer and do not want to compromise on either aspect, the Galaxy M40 offers the best of both worlds.
