Although the folding screen can easily meet your needs for a large size, the high price and the potential failure rate of the mechanical hinge structure have discouraged many people. This gave the vivo X Note an opportunity to be born as a traditional candy bar large-screen flagship. In addition to the folding screen, the vivo X Note can almost be said to be one of the flagship phones with the largest screen at the moment, but it is not heavy. With the excellent waistline design and the support of the plain leather back cover, it will make your hands accustomed to the super-large cup flagship relieved. After solving the contradiction between the large screen and the feel, the configuration of the vivo X Note is not at all possible. The full-focus quad-camera supported by the Zeiss lens, whether it is ultra-wide-angle or ultra-telephoto, whether it is day or night, can capture pure images for you. Coupled with additional features such as horizon image stabilization and Zeiss texture filters, this makes the vivo X Note a top-level image flagship.
