The new Vivo NEX reviews.

Published on August 3, 2018

Finally, the notch has its end so here is the new Vivo Nex with its pop-up selfie camera and all-screen experience, proves you don’t need ape the iPhone X’s ($1,000 at Cricket Wireless) design to stand out, and that Chinese phone makers can indeed innovate. A phone which future wants, Vivo NEX includes all those features. Vivo NEX includes wonderfull bezel-less 6.59-inch super AMOLED display featuring a full HD+ resolution of 2,136×1,080 pixels. In this new Vivo NEX, there is no front speaker grill which gives it a clean, nothing-but-screen look. SO there is no fingerprint scanner at the back but it is on the screen and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor powers the phone.

NEX is one of the converter phones on the market which will be the top selling phone in India. The first question about this is what will it break? The answer is no, it won’t, but more on that later. There is only one drawback in this phone that its terribly unwieldy iOS clone of an operating system and the fact that the Nex is currently limited to a few countries. So now the countries in which NEX is available is Russia, India, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan soon, but there’s no word on when, or even if, it will head west. The Nex costs 3,898 yuan, which converts to $575.

This new model of Vivo named Vivo NEX is directly isn’t cheap but alongside the Oppo Find X, the Vivo Nex demonstrates what futuristic phones can look like, by moving the camera and speaker grill to other parts of the phone, so according to this if you can get on Vivo NEX and want to stand out from the crowd, it’s a worthy purchase, though not at all a mainstream device. So make sure the Nex will work with your carrier bands before buying it and adding your SIM.

You will surely appreciate this new model of Vivo NEX because of this cutting-edge design is also clever. Companies that make “all-screen” phones have a problem: where do you put the front-facing camera, speaker grill and other sensors you need to make a phone work?

Let us talk about the features of the phone, the phone has the 8-megapixel selfie camera lives inside the phone body and pops up when you take a selfie. According to the mechanism, it is sturdy and likely unlikely to break. Before approving it, they tried it themselves and were very much confident that it’s anything and can easily be damaged. If we compared its camera with iPhone X then when you switch from the rear dual cameras to the front pop-up selfie, the switching speed is only slower by about half a second at most compared to iPhone. The second cool feature about this is that it has the under screen fingerprint sensor and the next Vivo phone the X21 also has this feature but it has bad reviews about it and seriously it is slower and sometimes frustrating to use. The Nex features the third-generation Synaptics scanner, however, which registers my prints almost immediately, a definite improvement.

In the X21, the selfie camera is hidden away but the screen fingerprint reader is fast enough. So directly Vivo also took away the Nex’s front-firing speakers. let us talk about something interesting about this, then it uses the screen as a speaker when you’re taking calls through the use of a linear vibrator, which basically transmits the sound to the frame of the phone that’s relayed through the screen. According to other phones in the market, this phone is similar to  Xiaomi ‘s Mi Mix 2 ($396 at but plays out better on the Vivo Nex, in this Mi Mix 2 the regular music and video playback uses a bottom-firing speaker instead.

Vivo NEX’s camera, battery life and speed:

NEX has pretty AI-powered dual-rear cameras and also it uses a 12- and 5-megapixel setup that lets you take portrait mode shots, though there’s no optical zoom. A very decent feature about this is that it has a low-light performance but can be too sharpened at times. Performance is very similar to the Vivo X21, but that’s no surprise because both phones share the same setup.
