Vivo Nex : The Beauty And The Beast

The Vivo Nex is a great smartphone and a gateway for us to get the perfect notch-less phone with a huge screen. It does so many things right and solves these problems in a scientifically clever way. The use of a retractable front camera, using vibrations instead of a proper earpiece, giving the users a ton of features with the help of AI, they are all really great things about the phone. The phone is beautifully designed hence a beauty and with Snapdragon 845 and 8GB RAM, it is a beast in performance. Vivo Nex is truly both a beauty and the beast.

80% Vivo Nex review: Innovation, thy name is Vivo Nex
Source: Gadget Show English
Vivo Nex is one bold step by the firm, which is not as popular as Samsung or Apple, in a country which also happens to be one of the top smartphone markets in the world. The brand definitely has a name and is also one of the only firms to bring innovations right at the palm of an Indian. However, users may find it slightly sceptical to spend Rs 44, 990 initially. There are a lot of pros with the Nex. It gives you a notch-less, virtually bezel-less display along with an on-screen fingerprint sensor that’s a part of innovation but can still be improved. Not to forget the cool camera pop up mechanism that may seem like a gimmick but is thankfully more than that. You get the top of the line processor, ample RAM, amazing battery life and a great Super AMOLED screen.

So, what do we think of the Vivo NEX? There’s no doubt that the phone will be remembered as a milestone. Between the unique attempt at maximising screen real estate and the under-screen fingerprint reader, the top of the line specifications, this ranks up there amongst the most feature packed and cutting edge devices available today. The lack of IP68 protection, wireless charging and NFC are a definite miss but in exchange you get a gigantic screen, battery life that lasts a solid work day and the sheer coolness factor of that pop up camera.

Vivo Nex costs close to Rs 45,000 in India. Given the kind of features it packs, the price is not surprising. The performance of the device is certainly smooth, and it ticks all the right boxes.

In an ideal world, the Vivo Nex, should have no competition. This is because it's in a league of its own. The Nex's in-display fingerprint scanner and pop-out front camera are technologies to marvel in 2018 when no-one else is doing them (at least not yet), and even though it isn't perfect, the Nex sets the stage for the future. That's saying a lot about Vivo, a company that has for long been called a cheap iPhone rip-off maker. It has come out and made something out of the ordinary for other OEMs to learn, adopt and evolve into something even more meaningful. Now, who saw that coming?

The Vivo Nex is a smartphone from the future which is gorgeous, immensely powerful, and loaded with impressive technologies. The OLED screen is superb, the rear camera is competent, and battery life is impressive. However, the software has niggles, the fingerprint scanner is unreliable, calls are hard to hear, and many flagship features such as waterproofing and wireless charging are conspicuous by their absence. In fact, these issues overshadow the phone's powerful processor.

The flagship killer, OnePlus 6, offers a similar processor and RAM at a lower price (Rs 39,999), and the Asus Zenfone 5Z is even lower in price terms. And this is not to forget the big sharks in the sea, like the Samsung S9 and Google Pixel 2 which may be priced higher but have been in the market for a longer period and enjoy greater brand equity in the premium segment, and come into contention the moment budgets go up. It, however, speaks volumes that the Vivo Nex does not seem out of place in such August company, and even holds its own in the design, camera performance, general performance and battery departments. Although some will quibble about the absence of water resistance and of course, face unlock, we do not think these are deal breakers, considering what the Nex delivers. Yes, the pop-up selfie camera will get it attention, but this is a very solid performer overall.

The NEX S definitely looks great and is a great conversation starter, but you aren’t exactly getting the best that the market has to offer.

Vivo Nex Dual Display

Like the Vivo Nex, the Vivo Nex Dual aims at a full-screen front for a phone. The first one achieved this by including a pop up mechanism for the front facing camera. On this version though, there is no front facing camera all together. Hence, the front of the phone is nothing but the main display. For a start, the Vivo Nex Dual measures in at 157.2 x 75.3 x 8.1 mm and weighs in at 199 grams. As the name suggests, it has two displays. The main display is a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED with Full HD+ resolution and interestingly, only a 84.7 % screen-to-body ratio. The second display is a 5.49 inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD resolution. The Nex Dual only comes in one color, which is the Polar Blue. There is no point to this though, there isn’t much space to be colored but the sides. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with an Adreno 630 GPU for graphics powers both displays. The Nex Dual only comes in one configuration which is 128 GB ROM with 10 GB of RAM. The internal storage cannot be expanded as there is no memory card slot. The Vivo Nex Dual comes with a triple camera setup for its imaging department. The first camera is a 12 MP with OIS, the second is a 2 MP dept sensor camera and the last one is a TOF (time of light) camera, which does pretty much the same thing as the second one. These three cameras are also used as the front facing camera because; well there are two displays. This makes for quite a good selfie camera. They also support HDR and 4k video shooting at 30 frames per second. Unlike many flagships today, the Vivo Nex Dual retains its 3.5 mm jack for audio output. For unlocking the phone, there is an under-screen finger print scanner on the front facing display. It comes with Android 9.0 pre-installed and a 3500 mAh battery to power it all. It supports fast charging via its bottom USB Type-C port. However, there is no wireless charging due to the dual display. The Vivo Nex Dual is a good attempt to the full screen design but for some reason, the full screen design doesn’t even get close to some other models with a front facing camera. It does look cleaner without a notch or a larger bezel for cameras and sensors but the chin is large enough to take away that full screen design. Also, some may find this design interesting but there is really no need for two displays on a device. The main one is good enough for videos, games and other things that one may use it for leaving no use for the second display but to take photos and selfies. Also, the entire effort for a full screen design is gone to waste because, from the other side which some can also mistake for the main display, the bezels are just too big. For those reasons, the Vivo Nex Dual may not be the best buy but as a concept and aim to go full screen, it gives a vision. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The highlight of the Vivo NEX Dual is its two displays. In addition to the traditional screen on the front, the NEX Dual has another AMOLED panel on the back. The latter means that you can take selfies with what would typically be rear-facing cameras without the need for dedicated front-facing sensors or an intrusive notch. Read on to find out how well this concept works and how the NEX Dual compares against other flagship smartphones.

At its heart, the Vivo Nex Dual Display is a fairly silly phone. No-one really needs a second display on their phone, and as solutions to the notch problem go, it’s one of the more extreme - most people would probably be happier with a slider or a cut-out.

Of course, only vivo can really know the true purpose behind the NEX family and just why and how it came about. Seeing how the NEX S and its Dual Display sibling were in the design and development pipeline together and considering their major design differences, yet common end-goal of delivering an "all-screen" device, it seems fair to assume an experimental nature. One executed from a veritable position of power as part of the ranks of BBK electronics. Vivo isn't particularly known for playing in the flagship segment either. So the NEX is clearly something new and different.

Source: Android Authority English
The Vivo NEX Dual Display edition isn’t the Vivo NEX 2 we were expecting, but it is a thoughtful and creative way to avoid the notch on a smartphone. With smart implementations like mirror mode and dual screen gaming, the second display is more than just a gimmick for me. While I don’t necessarily see this becoming a trend in 2019 devices, I’m glad to see companies like Vivo continuing to innovate and keeping smartphones fun.

The Vivo phone’s software includes both face and fingerprint recognition for mobile security and authentication. The on-screen fingerprint scanner is more accurate and faster now.

80% Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition Review
Source: Slashgear English
The Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition definitely feels like a preview of the future. Or at least one of the many possible futures that could run alongside foldable phones. Like the ZTE nubia X, it is, so far, one of the better implementations of dual screen phones we’ve seen so far. Unlike the nubia X, the Lunar Ring gives it a nice, futuristic touch.

Of course, there's no front-facing camera -- not even a pop-up one. But you won't really need it since the rear screen means the rear cameras can double up as a selfie camera.

Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition initial review: Twice the fun or double the trouble?
Source: Pocket Lint English
So is dual screen a fad or the future? The Vivo NEX Dual Display makes a strong impression as a flagship device. But there's the sense of over-engineering too: it's fingerprint on the front, face recognition on the rear, rather than a choice; only one side has Gorilla glass protection and you can throw the idea of a case out of the window too. That said, it's one impressive bit of over-engineering that gives our inner geek a warm glow.

Despite all that, the new Vivo Nex seems like a really exciting device. It’s nice to see manufacturers innovating in the space, and we’ll likely see more dual-display phones in the near future.
