Reviews for the Vivo Apex 2019

Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone review: Is port-free the future?
Source: Pocket Lint English version
So we might not be quite ready for port-free in its entirety just yet. But some of the ideas and technologies that the Vivo Apex 2019 lay out aren't as bonkers and far-fetched as they may first seem. You just wait a handful of months and we suspect there will be a brand new NEX device to embody the fingerprint technology and some other design features of this concept.

Vivo Apex 2019 review: Hands-on
Source: Tech Advisor English version
It’s hard to try and review a phone that’s never really intended to be used, so it’s better in a way to look at the Apex’s key features on their own merits. On that basis, the full-screen fingerprint scanner is the clear winner: a massive quality-of-life boosts that just works, and works well - expect to see this in every phone out there once sensor prices drop enough.

Qualcomm Adreno 640: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is intergrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 20% faster than the Adreno 630 in the Snapdragon 845 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 855: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2018 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a modified ARM Cortex-A76 architecture clocked at up to 2.84 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A76 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a X24 LTE modem (up to 2 Gigbit download), a new Wi-Fi modem (Wi-Fi 6 ready, 60 GHz mmWave), Hexagon 690 DSP with new Tensor cores for AI processing, a Spectra 380 ISP with an integrated computer vision engine and an integrated LPDDR4x memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
