Reviews for the Vivo NEX 3 5G

Our hands-on experience with the vivo NEX 3 5G cameras
Source: Tech Nave English
Overall, our first impression of the vivo NEX 3 5G has been quite positive. Personally, my favourite ones are the macro and ultra-wide angle as the camera software is able to retain much of the texture and colour quality. While the bokeh mode already looks quite good, we did notice some room for improvement, as the overexposure might be a tad too much but it's still a pretty good shot. We are currently reviewing the vivo NEX 3 5G so we will be taking more photos to see how much more it can go.

The vivo NEX 3 continues along the path set by the APEX concept close to two years ago. It's had plenty of time to evolve, and this third generation is now a mature smartphone where the minimal bezels are no longer the defining feature. Minimal they still are, and the all-screen front that wraps around the sides makes for one of the best looking designs you can buy.

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.

855+: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in 2019 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a modified ARM Cortex-A76 architecture clocked at up to 2.96 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. Compared to the normal Snapdragon 855, the 855 Plus offers higher clock speeds of the GPU and CPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
