The vivo NEX 3 beat Huawei Mate 30 Pro by some three days to announce the first smartphone with a view of the waterfall. We must review the first Mate, but we are pursuing. Now turn NEX ‘that we have here at 5G cut – together we must address at the launch event.
Not only to see vivo plunge first, but it is also missing a notch – we would always prefer to show disturbed no more curvy cutout, so that NEX has this going for it more Mate. NEX 3 has a selfie camera tucked in the pop-up motor module, in which vivo also has an LED flash – even more points Mate.
And, talk about the advantages NEX ‘on Mate … well, this one has been Google Play, even if it is clear the Chinese ROM. Mate was not so lucky this time.
Anyway, NEX 3 is the third in a line of innovative handsets contained vivo with APEX concept when the phone is not all that bezelless yet. NEX 3 continue along that path and offers some best screen to body ratio around. We’re not entirely sure first how a curved display will fare with palm rejection, but the early signs are promising.
The impetus for the main display has seen few physical controls go, and NEX 3 does not have mechanical keys. Okay, technically, it has one of the top only for emergencies in case other options fail, but it is not intended to be used day to day.
That’s another option is a pressure sensitive area on the right edge of the screen that serves as the power button and volume controls with the ‘button’ strength characterized by textured patch on a metal frame with a volume above and below it. The jury is still out on whether this will be a problem, but we’re getting used to it. Interestingly, we even find it easier to take screenshots simply by pressing their thumb with a virtual power and volume down buttons rather than on the Galaxy Note10 with actual buttons.
Anyway, the NEX cameras have a rather typical setup on his back with a 64MP main cam usual, ultra wide and tele module. The main unit uses Quad Bayer 64MP sensor we’ve found in Realme XT and redmi Note 8 Pro, and we wanted to get some good weather so we can come out firing.
Stay tuned for NEX 3 5G vivo detailed review, comes by the beginning of next week.
